This is it. The last chapter. Also, it’s NSFW. Find a nice secluded spot. 🙂
Sookie twisted her hands as she looked from Eric’s face to Pam’s eyes in the rearview mirror. “Well … when I woke up, in the cemetery, I looked around for you everywhere. But I couldn’t find you. I only found signs of a struggle and what turned out to be blood.”
“You tasted it?” Eric asked.
She nodded. “Yeah, and then, after that, I kept getting these flickers of pain. I figured it had to be you.”
Eric brushed her cheek with his thumb and smiled. “I’m glad you found me.” He turned toward Pam. “Are we in Monroe?”
“Yes. After Sookie and I searched his house in Bon Temps, and found nothing but a few sets of tire tracks, I figured he would be staying with friends. Turns out he’s still close with Liam, Diane, and Malcolm. Well … were close. On our way to their nest, I got your call, but it was too dangerous to go in with them awake. That’s when Sookie and I planned our rescue.”
“I’m so sorry.” Tears filled her eyes. “If I hadn’t been so stubborn and walked away from you, none of this would’ve happened.”
Eric shook his head slowly. “Yes it would’ve. Bill was prepared. He’d probably been planning it since the night I found you at Merlotte’s. You mustn’t blame yourself.”
“They kidnapped you. Tortured you. Hurt you.” She wiped the tears from her cheek. “Because of me.”
Eric leaned close to her and whispered, “If the other night is any indication, you’re worth it.” He grinned.
She pushed away the tattered edges of his bloodstained shirt and frowned. Bright red welts covered his chest. She touched them lightly.
Eric put his hand on top of hers. “Silver chains. It’ll take a while before the scars are gone.”
She lifted his hand into hers and kissed the inside of his wrist, where the chains had cut almost to the bone. Her stomach churned as she recalled the scent of burning flesh that filled the room where she found Eric.
“Thanks to you, I’m well on my way.”
Sookie kissed the inside of his palm and each one of his fingertips.
“I hate to interrupt, but there’s a bottle of blood on the floor back there,” Pam said.
“Thanks, Pam.” Eric popped the top off and drained the bottle in a few long swallows. He grimaced and then smiled at Sookie with red-number-five-stained teeth. “It’s not as good as the real thing, but it helps too.”
Pam pulled the car off the side of the road and turned in her seat. She looked at Eric as she said, “Should I take Sookie home, or—”
“Take us to my house,” Eric answered, and then he looked at Sookie. “Unless, of course, you would rather go home.”
Sookie shook her head and then nuzzled against his chest. “I don’t want to leave you.”
Eric smoothed her hair and then wrapped his arms around her body, holding her against him for the rest of the car ride.

She stood, wide-eyed, just inside Eric’s front door. Pam smiled as she drove away, and then Eric lifted Sookie off the ground into a bone-bruising hug.
“Thank you for coming for me,” he whispered just before he kissed her.
She panted for breath when he put her back down. “I’m glad we all made it out alive.” Just thinking about the alternatives made her heart skip a beat. Gran would never forgive me if I got myself killed. “Oo! I gotta call my gran!”
Eric smiled and handed her a phone.
Gran answered after the fifth ring. “Sookie, is that you?”
“Gran! I’m checking in to let you know everything’s fine.”
“Did you get help and save your young man?”
Sookie grinned. “I sure did. I’m calling to let you know I won’t be home tonight, again. Don’t worry about me okay?”
“You know I will, honey, but I understand. I was young and in love once, too. Tell Eric hello for me.”
Sookie’s cheeks burned. “Okay, Gran. Good night.”
“Thanks for letting me use your phone,” Sookie said as she handed it back to him.
“My gran says hello.” He just stared at her, so she went on. “Turns out she’s already met you.” They had a long conversation about him before she and Pam planned the rescue.
“Yes. The first night I came to Bon Temps, I went directly to your house.”
“My gran was mighty impressed by you. Not many men have been able to do that, so imagine her delight when she discovered you were the man I was helping.” Sookie smiled.
“Are you hungry?”
She shook her head. “I ate before coming to get you.”
She shook her head again. “Do you think, maybe I could take a shower?”
Eric nodded. “Of course.”
Her cheeks burned again. “You could, um, join me, if you want to.”
“I would love to,” he said and he grinned, fangs on full display. He led the way downstairs, talking as he went. “The bathroom down here has a bigger shower.” They passed a massive bed and an open closet.
Sookie glanced inside at the racks of T-shirts and jeans. Oh my god, this is his bedroom. She put her hand on her chest, trying to quiet her racing heart.
“Don’t be nervous.” He stopped and turned to face her.
She smiled uneasily. “I’ve never done this.”
He smiled. “Compared to breaking and entering, this is nothing.”
She chuckled. “I guess you’re right. I just feel dirty after being in that room.” She shuddered and then pushed the images of his torture out of her mind.
He didn’t speak, he just started undressing. He threw his tattered shirt in the garbage.
She traced the angry red welts across his chest while his fingers tugged at the hem of her T-shirt. He lifted her shirt up and off her head, and then he kissed her; her lips, then her neck, and then he bent his head and sucked on the swell of her breasts.
Sookie struggled to breathe.
“You’re so soft. So warm,” Eric said as he pulled the straps of her bra off her shoulder and unhooked the back.
She unbuttoned his pants and he hissed. She frowned. “Did they hurt here too?”
He shook his head and rubbed his thumb across her nipple.
Sookie focused on his pants, sighing when she finally got them off. His cock sprang up toward her, making her gasp. Whoa. Everything about him is big.
“Your turn,” he said, looking down at her jeans.
She started unbuttoning them, but he stopped her. He dipped his fingers inside the waistband while he worked on the button, rubbing against her sex. She closed her eyes and moaned. Eric growled and tugged her jeans open and then she wiggled her hips so she could step out of them. He squatted in front of her, pushing her pants to the ground. She stepped away from him, moving closer to the bathroom, knowing they wouldn’t make it to the shower if she didn’t move right then. “How do you turn the shower on?”
Eric moved in a blur, and then he was in the shower, beckoning her. Water poured from three showerheads, drenching him from all sides. He dipped his head under the warm water and sighed. Sookie picked up a bar of soap and rubbed it between her hands. She massaged his muscular arms, being careful around his wounds. He leaned his head against the shower wall, letting her manipulate his body. “Is this okay?” she asked as she soaped his chest.
Her hands moved down, hovering over his dick. She bit her lip as she considered whether she should touch him there or not, and then he made the decision for her. His hips jerked toward her and he thrust into her hands. He moaned. It was the best sound she’d ever heard. She gripped him and twisted her wrists making him moan again. She smiled and did it again. She closed the gap between them, pressing her body against him. His cock rubbed against her stomach as her nipples grazed his chest. She watched the pleasure building on his face and pumped him over and over again until his entire body shuddered and he came all over her.
His mouth found hers, devouring her as he shifted her under the water, rinsing her body and warming her skin. He sucked on her tongue as he explored her body, lathering her skin, just like she had done to him. She turned in the water, letting the soap rinse off, and then his hungry mouth moved down. He moaned against her breast and flicked her nipple. Her legs shook, so he gripped her ass, kneading her flesh. He lathed her other nipple before licking and kissing down her stomach until he was kneeling between her legs.
Sookie’s breath caught in her throat when he kissed her sex. She leaned against the wall and he lifted her leg over his shoulder. His tongue pushed inside her and then swept up to her clit. Her head started to spin.
“Breathe,” he whispered, his breath caressing her sex.
She gasped for air and then let out a shuddering sigh as his talented tongue got back to work. He thrust inside her over and over again until her heel dug into his back and her body arched. She screamed, filling the small room with the sounds of her pleasure. Eric moaned against her slit, his teeth grazing her swollen skin.
Justlikethat, he had her pinned against the wall, her body still shaking from her orgasm, his cock pushing against her entrance.
“Tell me what you want,” he whispered just before he kissed her. Her tanginess lingering on his tongue.
“I want you.” She took a deep breath. “Be gentle. This is my first time.”
Eric squeezed his eyes shut and pushed inside her a fraction of an inch.
She exhaled and forced herself to relax, taking him in a little farther.
“Fuck,” he said. The word mingled with a moan. “So tight.”
Inhale. Exhale. Relax. A little farther. Her eyes crossed.
A vibration moved through his body as intense energy pulsed through his body.
“Gentle,” she reminded him.
“I’m trying,” he ground out and then his hips jerked, thrusting into her ever so slightly.
She moaned and sank down on his dick the rest of the way. “Holy shit.” He filled her completely, rubbing against parts of her body she never knew she had.
His eyes opened, wild and hungry.
She took another deep breath and then nodded. “I’m ready.”
He pulled out slowly, setting her nerves on fire, and then he pushed back in. He watched her face intently, and then stopped just as he hit a sweet spot inside her. He gave her a fangy grin, and then thrust into her until she cried out.
She let out a shaky breath. “What was that?”
“Your g spot.” Another grin, and then he spiraled his hips until their bodies collided, crushing her clit between them with each union.
“Oh god. I’m going to come again,” she mumbled, closing her eyes and letting the feeling in her body control her. “Bite me.” She wanted it to feel good. She wanted him to feel good.
His body slammed into hers as his fangs slid into her neck. Pain mixed with pleasure as she came. Eric gulped against her skin while his hips jerked erratically against her.
When he pulled his mouth away, he was smiling. “See? You were worth it.”
Sookie blushed. “That was the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced.”
“I’m glad it was with me.” He kissed her neck and licked the wounds.
He lifted her body off his, both of them shuddering at the loss of contact. When she looked at his chest, the welts were all but gone.
He touched her neck. “You did that. Come on,” he said as he turned off the water and wrapped her in a towel. He carried her to his bed where they snuggled together.
“Didn’t you mention something about a job?” she asked.
She raised an eyebrow. “Changing your mind?”
“Only if you change your stance on dating bosses.”
Sookie laughed. “I meant Sam. If you happened to be my boss, I might just reconsider.”
“I need your word.” He dipped his hand between her legs, opening her as he moved his dick into position.
“You have my word…” She closed her eyes. “You have my everything.”
He pushed inside her and said, “Then you can have the job … and me.”
Well? Was it worth it?
