Mr. January: Part 2

Charlaine Harris owns everything. I own the rest.

A big thanks to SeriousCrush and Laurie for helping me polish this story. I love you both. ๐Ÿ™‚

This chapter is NSFW. Youโ€™ve been warned.

I’m sorry I forgot to post spoilers… I was busy finishing my third book. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just a few more weeks of editing and it’s off to the publisher. Wish me luck!


Mr. January: Part 2


Sookie closed her eyes, fresh tears seeping out of her closed lids. โ€œI have always been yours.โ€ When she opened her eyes she was surprised to see shock on Ericโ€™s face. She smiled. โ€œFrom the first night I saw you at Fangtasia, I wanted you, but I never thought in a million years you would want me too.โ€

He nodded, making his tousled hair fall over his eyes. โ€œYouโ€™re the only one I want.โ€

โ€œButโ€ฆ You canโ€™t leave your position.โ€

โ€œNo.โ€ He shook his head and smiled. โ€œI have no intention of quitting my job and hiding in your house for eternity. I want it all. Whatโ€™s the expression? I want to have my cake and eat it too?โ€

โ€œIn this analogy, Iโ€™m the cake?โ€ Her body turned to jelly at the thought of him eating her.

His smile widened. โ€œIf memory serves, you are delicious.โ€ He snapped at the air between them, clacking his teeth.

Sookie giggled and then kissed him. His lips were soft and cool. She licked his fangs, making him moan.

โ€œI like that.โ€ His eyes were closed and his voice was dreamy.

โ€œI remember.โ€ She smiled and then kissed him again. Although things between them were complicated, and there were definitely strings attached, it was better than it had been before. When he had amnesia, there was always a part of her brain telling her that it wouldnโ€™t last, that it wasnโ€™t real, that he wouldnโ€™t remember her. Because of that, she never gave herself to him, not fully. She always held back a little piece of her heart. But this Eric was whole, and he was with her because he wanted to be with her. That knowledge warmed every cell inside her body.

His fingers dug into her hair as he deepened the kiss. She moved closer to him, twisting and straining until finally, she was straddling his lap. She was panting when they pulled apart.

โ€œIs this why you came here tonight?โ€

Eric smiled. โ€œYes and no. I would be a liar to say it wasnโ€™t on my mind. I always want to have sex with you.โ€ He pushed the two sides of the robe apart at the top and caressed the base of her neck. โ€œBut Iโ€™m here because I had to see you. Iโ€™ve been going crazy trying to remember. Trying to make sense of what you told me that night Mickey attacked us. Somehow, I knew I was at peace the last night we spent together. I thought that maybe if I saw you, I would feel that again.โ€

โ€œDo you?โ€ Sookie wrapped her arms around Ericโ€™s neck.

He nodded. โ€œYes. I also wanted to bring pictures to tempt you.โ€

โ€œIt worked.โ€

โ€œHa. You did the tempting! I wasnโ€™t counting on you wearing the tiny piece of clothing. I could barely contain myself watching your ass move back and forth like that.โ€

โ€œLike this?โ€ Sookie moved on his lap, rubbing her ass against him.

Eric growled and then kissed the base of her neck.

โ€œI like that,โ€ she whispered.

โ€œI remember.โ€ His words licked her skin. His hands slid down the side of her body and then he was tugging at the belt holding her robe closed. He sighed when he got it untied and his cock twitched when he pushed it open, revealing her breasts. โ€œI remember these too.โ€ And then he cupped her warm flesh and kissed and licked every inch.

Sookie writhed on top of him, closing her eyes and holding onto his shoulders for dear life. His tongue was more talented than she remembered. The noise that came out of her mouth surprised her. It was a cry and a moan all twisted together and set every nerve on fire. She arched her back and rode out the orgasm, all the while, Eric never relented his attack on her nipples.

Eric kissed his way up her neck, cradling her face with his large hands before kissing her lips. โ€œI love that sound.โ€ He closed his eyes and inhaled deeply, holding his breath for a long time before exhaling. โ€œI love the way you smell.โ€ When he looked at her again, his eyes were wild.

โ€œAnd I love the way you feel.โ€ Sookie buried her hand between their bodies, stroking the massive bulge in his pants. She slid onto the ground, her knees resting between his feet. She popped the button holding his pants closed, freeing his magnificent cock. Her fingers danced across his skin, and as he jerked, she sucked his cock into her mouth. Ericโ€™s body stilled and a strangled word left his lips.


She sucked him slow, which she knew he liked, twisting her head before going down again. He was about to come, she could tell by the way his muscles tensed and how his dick swelled. And then she scraped him with her blunt teeth. He roared and came in powerful spasms. She kissed him one last time and smiled.

โ€œYou are really good at that,โ€ Eric said. โ€œMy turn.โ€

And justlikethat, Sookie was on her back on her bed and he was standing between her legs. The robe fell open the rest of the way, and he tentatively touched her slippery sex. He sucked his finger into his mouth and groaned. โ€œI love the way you taste.โ€

โ€œYou need to get undressed,โ€ she said in a husky voice.

Eric happily complied, dropping one piece of clothing after another onto the floor until he was naked too, his glistening cock jutting up from powerful legs.

โ€œYou are so spectacular.โ€ Sookie swallowed hard.

Sheโ€™d had two weeks to learn what he liked when he was hiding at her house, but heโ€™d had centuries to master the art of pleasing a woman, and it showed. He started with kisses, and then he was licking her slit, alternately thrusting his tongue inside her and attacking her clit. Her eyes crossed and her toes curled. An incoherent string of words flew out of her mouth with a scream as she came. Eric buried his tongue inside her, drinking the reward of her orgasm.

She was struggling to breathe when Eric shifted, pushing his cock against her quivering lips. And then he was kissing her. She could taste herself on his lip. She was holding her breath for the moment they finally reunited, but it never came.

When she opened her eyes, she found Eric watching her. โ€œWhatโ€™s wrong?โ€

His face was clouded, and when he spoke it was a mere whisper. โ€œI love you.โ€ He frowned. โ€œDo you love me too?โ€

Sookie nodded and bit her lip. โ€œYes, I do. I love you.โ€

Eric smiled and then thrust inside her. They moaned in unison. โ€œSo good. Iโ€™ve missed you. I didnโ€™t know what it was before tonight, but thatโ€™s what it was. Me missing you.โ€

Sookie held his face between her hands and kissed his mouth as she lifted off the bed, forcing him deeper inside. โ€œIโ€™ve missed you too.โ€

The happiness on Ericโ€™s face was evident, just as it had been all those weeks ago, and then it was gone, replaced by pure, unbridled lust. Eric kissed her while he spiraled his hips, over and over again. Sookie lifted to meet him, crushing her clit against his hard body with each thrust, and when she came again, he devoured her scream. Her body shook around him, milking his cock until he came with her.

Eric twisted onto the bed next to her. Sookie wrapped her leg around him, holding him inside her. He smiled. โ€œNo wonder we had sex so much.โ€

Sookie giggled and nodded. โ€œYou are very good at that.โ€

He pushed a strand of hair out of her face. โ€œItโ€™s as if you were made for me.โ€

That was a good way to put it. โ€œI love being in your arms.โ€

Eric kissed her again, slow and sweet, but when he pulled away, he had a troubled look on his face.

โ€œWhatโ€™s wrong?โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t want us to part. I want you with me.โ€

Sookie frowned. โ€œThis is my house, itโ€™s all I have.โ€

Ericโ€™s forehead smoothed. โ€œI didnโ€™t mean for you to move, although I would love to share my bed with you every night.โ€ His cock hardened inside her as his hand caressed the curve of her hip, waking her desire yet again. โ€œI want to be bonded to you.โ€


โ€œBy blood.โ€ His fangs slid down. โ€œWe have exchanged blood twice.โ€

โ€œYou tricked me the first time.โ€ Sookie narrowed her eyes.

Eric looked away. โ€œI know. Which is why Iโ€™m asking you now. The bond will be much stronger. Iโ€™ll be able to feel you, even when weโ€™re apart, and you will be able to do the same.โ€

โ€œThird timeโ€™s the charm?โ€ Sookie tilted her head.

โ€œYou could say that.โ€ He smiled and then his eyebrows formed a hopeful arch.

She rolled until she was on top of him, and then they began moving again. She watched his face relax as desire washed over him. Being with him made her happy, and she definitely needed more happiness in her life. โ€œBite me.โ€

Ericโ€™s eyes snapped open and he smiled. He slowed the movements of his hips and brought his face up to meet her breast. His fangs glinted in the soft light next to her bed, but before his mouth came down on her skin, he brought his wrist to his mouth. He tore into the flesh, making a wound that didnโ€™t heal immediately. Sookie watched him, wide-eyed, and opened her mouth. Cradling his arm against her body, she angled her breast toward his mouth. His fangs slid into her flesh just as he thrust into her hard and fast, slamming into her wildly. She drank, filling her mouth again and again with his sweet blood as he gulped and moaned against her breast.

Sookie closed her eyes and gasped as her pleasure intensified. It was more than what she was feeling; it was Ericโ€™s feelings too. His desire, lust, love, hunger. She could feel it all, and it overwhelmed her until she thought she might pass out. She pulled her mouth away from his wrist at the same moment Eric released her breast. Their mouths met hard, bruising her lips, while she rode him at a neck-breaking pace. She pushed a scream into his mouth just as he moaned into hers, the sounds mingling into a cacophony of pleasure. As the euphoria dissipated, Sookie could feel him again. He was just as happy as she was.

When he smiled at her, it was as if she were bathed in warm light. It made her skin tingle.

โ€œI can feel you.โ€ She smiled.

โ€œMe too. I had no idea how wild you are. Your intensity is unrivaled.โ€ He sucked her lip into his mouth and then released it with a pop.

โ€œAnd your hunger is never-ending.โ€ She kissed him. โ€œIs that how you always feel? Hungry?โ€

โ€œOnly when Iโ€™m with you,โ€ he said, and then he devoured her all over again.



The End


Well? Are you all happy and satisfied…for now? Don’t worry, Take Me Now, You Big Viking, Part 2 is coming soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awwwww, that is perfect!!! Well done!! Sweet, hot, tender, and playfully-intense – couldn’t ask for better! (‘Cept a huge **ow** on the boobie-biting! *crosses arms over chest and runs off quickly*)

    Srsly, though: GREAT JOB!!!


  3. padore says:

    Sigh!! You have fixed one hot mess – thank you! I like so much better – both of them accepting their feelings and being together! The books just confused me – they never really discussed anything. It was like Eric did not want to upset Sookie and she def never wanted to discuss anything that might make her “feel” – she seemed to run from anything meaningful…like your version MUCH better!!!


    • I’m all about resolving problems, including Sookie being a dumbass who never discusses or fixes any of her problems (of course, her problems always ‘happen’ to her as the perpetual victim, so why should she fix anything, right?). I don’t understand the ‘sweep it under the rug’ people. Open discussions and honest feelings always give rise to much better relationships, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ I am SO glad you loved my fix. I aim to please!! Thank you so much for reviewing!


  4. duckbutt60 says:

    Love that you righted a terrific wrong in the books. The awkward dance Eric and Sookie engaged in when he didn’t remember their time together and she was not terribly forthcoming…….. Your version rocks! CH’s version sucks!


    • LOL Thanks Pat, I know I can always count on you for support when it comes to fixing all the stupid moments in the book. I’m working on them all, believe me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I never understood Sookie’s motivation for keeping her mouth shut. If I had just had a captive audience with a Viking lover, I would’ve been singing it from the rooftops! And why in the world did Eric avoid her house for four books? If there was some piece of info he was missing, you’d think he’d scour the earth to find the answers, and her house was the only logical place to start. Ok, I’m done ranting.

      Thank you for reviewing, I always love making you happy!


  5. lostinspace33 says:

    Oh la la…I love it!


  6. sluggysmom says:

    Thank you for fixing CH’s mess! I was sooooo excited when Eric finally remembered his and Sookie’s time together in book 8, but was EXTREMELY disappointed in book 9! Thank you for making it better. I think any kind of redo of book 8 is my favorite!


    • Yep, because it’s book 8 when things start to derail and book 9 is when everything goes to shit. Why can’t she just give Sookie and Eric a little happiness (with both of them fully aware/present)? She forces their marriage, then gets Eric’s creepy-ass sire in there, and then it’s just all too horrifying to remember, really.

      I’m so glad you liked this little short story. I enjoyed writing it very much. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reviewing!


  7. askarsgirl says:

    That was perfect! So sweet to each other. I love how you write Eric ๐Ÿ˜ŠThank you! And can’t wait till part two of Take me now, you big Viking ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


  8. jules3677 says:

    Definitely the way it should have been! Delight to read. Thankyou.


  9. valady1 says:

    So much better than the original, you got them past the relationship stew the author left them in. And I can’t help being frustrated about her obsession with that house. If she met a human she fell in love with who wasn’t from Bon Temps, or who also had an ancestral home, would she expect him to give it up and move in to Gran’s house? Whatever happened to making a commitment to the one you love and starting a new life together? (shakes fist at CH)….Lovely short story, looking forward to the sequel.


    • LOL Sequels are lovely, aren’t they? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m just glad you’re not shaking your fist at me…that would be a sad day!!

      I agree. Yes, it’s her family house, but she could always rent it to a friend or something (which is exactly what I did in Getaway) and get over it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m all about fully committed relationships. Otherwise, what’s the point? No relationship stews around these parts! Thanks so much for reviewing!


  10. msbuffy says:

    Oh so much better than the original. ๐Ÿ™‚ Off to smoke now!


    • LOL, I’m encouraging a bad habit, aren’t I? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for reviewing!


      • msbuffy says:

        I’m way past the bad habit part but I’m certain that chapter would have started me smoking! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Phew! I was all worried about you for a minute, but then again, we’ve all got to die from something, right? ๐Ÿ™‚


      • msbuffy says:

        Believe me, with everything else I’ve got going on with this worn-out body, smoking is the least of my worries. It’ll give out long before smoking can do its’ harm. Every day is adventure for me! It’s a brighter way of looking at things rather than doom & gloom. I prefer laughter & silliness! Having fun with my grandkids or family is the best, along with your stories & my other favorite writers! ๐Ÿ™‚


      • I’m glad I can contribute to your happiness. That makes me all warm and fuzzy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Every day should be an adventure…sounds like you’re doing it right. ๐Ÿ™‚


  11. redjane12 says:

    VERY… nice…


  12. Yvonn Ad says:

    Wow wow wow wow weeeeeeee
    And thats how you properly Bond with someone…… :)))
    That was such a SPECTACULAR ending.
    Thank you for starting our weekend with another amazing chapter.
    I think im going to re-read all your stories again.
    Have a wonderful weekend


    • YvonnA, you always make me laugh out loud! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face! I’m so glad you loved it, and thank you SO much for the love. You’re the nicest!! I hope you had a wonderful (and well-read) weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚


  13. chileah says:

    I waited to comment until part 2 was up. Sorry , thank you so much I could see you taking it from here and finishing off the story. I am thrilled with the resolution you gave us. I must say like many of the sookie and eric fans out there (the author who shall not be named) destroyed the couple not realizing she had a gold mine in them, they had enough problems with the fact that she is a faerie and he was a vampire to add all the other stupidity she did. I will also confess I did not read any of her books past dead in the family I knew she was going to destroy them so I gave up before she could so I just live in my fanfiction eric and sookie goodness. I am thrilled with your fix… thank you. Are all your stories hea’s for Sookie and Eric. Since you know who’s books I really don’t do agnsty real well she kind of destroyed that part of the stories for me when she never resolved anything to satisfaction for me why take us through nine books or so of Eric and Sookie to tear them apart. Also my thought on the books is that Eric was the only one of the two that grew relationship wise she never made sookie grow as a person. I am glad to see you have.. Thank you once again for a great ending to that conflict. OH and I love how you also solved the conflict of the bonding…. great job.


    • Wow! Thank you SO much for that wonderful review!!! I am so glad you loved this story (any my others as well)! I totally agree. I stopped reading the books after the 11th one (whichever that is, I can’t remember since I blocked it from my memory), so I feel you.

      CH definitely had a gold mine with Sookie and Eric, and yet, she just sat there, making Sookie the perpetual victim and Eric the brooding idiot. We get it, he’s a vampire. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have fully thrown myself into writing FF that resolves each and every one of their problems (well, at least until the last few books where this is no possible way to resolve anything). I’m thrilled you have found me and that you love my stories. Thank you SO much for telling me so!


  14. Toni says:

    I have only one word for you AWSOME!


  15. murgatroid98 says:

    Lovely. Thank you.


  16. gyllene says:

    Thank you for fixing another mess that CH provided. I read this the day you posted but it was from my phone. I look forward to reading what you have coming next.


    • I’m so glad you approve of my tweaking of the canon. I’m trying to stay true to the books but I just can’t help myself…Sookie needs to be a real person (and not some brain-dead victim) and Eric needs to be naked. That’s all. It’s not too much to ask, is it? Thank you for coming back from reading on your phone so you could review.

      Since you mentioned it, can you tell me if you experience any issues reading my blog on your phone? I had a person post a message requesting a mobile form…but as far as I can tell, I’ve got it as mobile as I can with a account. I’ve accessed my site through a mobile device and although it’s stripped down, it seems like everything is there. Anyway, if you could let me know what your experience has been using your phone, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚


      • gyllene says:

        Sometimes I have trouble signing in on my phone. Then when I try to post it gives me an error. It’s not only your site that it happens on.
        Eric most definitely needs to be naked and Sookie needs a brain. I always approve of your canon tweaking and look forward to your next story.


      • Thanks for that feedback. I couldn’t find any issues with my site either, so I’m glad I wasn’t just missing something. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not sure how to help with the error/logging in issue. I’m just grateful for each and every review, especially when you go to such lengths to leave them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad we agree on the E/S situation. Nudity is always involved in my world…


  17. ashmo2000 says:

    The way it should have been from the beginning:)


  18. Cheryl says:

    That was awesome! Thank you so much!


  19. theladykt says:

    ooh Yummy Yummy. Yey for bond too.


  20. A great story, so much better than the travesty that was sold to the masses.


    • I’m so glad you loved it! I have to say though, CH really knows how to draw readers in and keep them waiting. I held my breath for 4 books waiting for Eric to remember…and all that time, I bought her books. She definitely knows how to sell books, that’s for sure. Me? I can’t sell books to save my life, but I just can’t bring myself to write angsty crap. It would make me crazy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reviewing!


  21. YvonnAd says:

    Hi never realized that you were working on your 3rd book. Yay!! So excited for it. Can’t wait to read it.


  22. geenakmom says:

    Beautiful! Their confessions of love and then bonding….is just perfect. I’m so glad they are in love and willing to be with one another. Sigh….one can wish this was how it went for real.

    Great short story Sweetie. Looking forward to more.


    • I am so glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚ This was the ending I always hoped for when he mentioned the calendar shoot! Why did CH not give us what we wanted? Thank you so much for you kind and lovely review. I’ve got a new story I’m working on…


  23. Jackiedm69 says:

    This was definitely better with the awesome lemons!!!
    Thanks for fixing CH’s mess!!
