I’m waiting for edits, so all mistakes are my own. 🙂 It’s been too long. I know, but better late than never! Charliane Harris owns everything, as per usual.
“You called?” Pam blinked her eyes and smiled sweetly.
“No. I didn’t.” Eric scowled at her. “I’ll have you know you just interrupted something. Again.”
“She smells yummy.” Pam licked her lips.
“Keep your tongue to yourself. Sookie is mine.” Eric sighed. “Actually I do need to talk to you. It’s about tomorrow night. The Queen is coming, she wants to meet Sookie.”
Pam’s shoulders tensed. “Is this about your trip the lab in Alexandria? I meant to ask why you took her with you.”
“Yes. Sookie is a telepath. Don’t say anything to anyone. She already feels like an outsider and keeps her telepathy a secret. It would also be very bad for us if other vampires discovered her talent.”
Pam rolled her eyes. “Obviously. Of course I won’t say anything.”
“It was Sookie who uncovered Long Shadow’s plot to shut down our TrueBlood facility. He had been coercing an employee to taint the finished batches with bleach. Felicia was there the whole time and must’ve heard something because now the Queen knows Sookie is different.” His jaw muscles clenched. “Sookie has agreed to meet with her.”
“Are you worried?”
“I would be if Sookie and I hadn’t just exchanged blood.”
“What!” Pam’s mouth hung open. “You exchanged blood with her? You really meant it when you said she was yours.”
“I only meant to heal her after Long Shadow hurt her throat, and then she kissed me and my fang cut her tongue.”
Pam shook her head. “Lucky bastard.”
