Worth It: Chapter 7

Charlaine Harris owns almost everything. I own the rest. Thanks for the support and love, FairytaleAmber!

This is it. The last chapter. Also, it’s NSFW. Find a nice secluded spot. 🙂


Chapter 7

Sookie’s POV

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.”

“Night honey.”

“Thanks for letting me use your phone,” Sookie said as she handed it back to him.

“You’re welcome.”

“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.

He nodded.

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.

“Me too.”

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.

“You healed.”

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.”

The End


Well? Was it worth it?

I’ve got another story in the works…I’ll be posting a little blurb and spoiler soon, so be sure to follow me so you know when they’re up.

      Thanks so much for reviewing!


  3. geenakmom says:

    So she has a connection to him, was curious how she knew.

    Wow what an awesome shower! I want to say something witty about it having 3 shower heads but we all know what makes it awesome is a naked Viking, lol.

    Happy she changed her mind on dating her boss. 🙂

    Can’t wait for your next story!


  4. gyllene says:

    Great chapter! It was definitely worth it. I hope we don’t have to wait too long before your next story.


  5. VictoryInTrouble says:

    Aww, I’m sad this is over! Loved this sexy chapter. I so loved the way she gently touched and kissed his injured skin. So sweet that she kissed each fingertip. Shower sex is always good and this was no exception! Looking forward to your next story!


    • Thank you so much! Sweet innocent Sookie would be super tender, wouldn’t she? 🙂 I’m working on the next one right now, so hopefully I’ll have something to post next Friday! 🙂 Thanks so much for reviewing!


  6. valady1 says:

    Tenderness and passion, the perfect combination, and the perfect way to end this story.


  7. Awesome you totally rock thank you so much for inviting us to partake of this journey with you. ; )


    • Thank you so much Toni! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I know it was a little touch and go for a minute there when Eric was getting tortured, but hopefully, I made it up to you. 🙂 If you haven’t already, you should check out my other stories (I have lots here…). Also keep an eye out for my new one. I’ll post a spoiler soon! 🙂 Thank you for reviewing!


  8. ozzo says:

    GREAT. But it drives me mad that you stop. I want to see what happens NEXT!


    • What if, and hear me out, I’m trying to drive you mad? What then? Do I get a gold star or something? Or perhaps I get some kind of present, like a brownie? I’m glad you enjoyed it while it lasted. You know, I could very well come back to this story, or any of them, at any time, I just need the right inspiration for that to happen! Thanks for reviewing even if you ARE mad at me! 🙂


  9. msbuffy says:

    Wow. Yum! Loved it all. Can’t wait to see what you’ve got for us next!


  10. lostinspace33 says:

    That was SO worth it…every word!!! 🙂


  11. askarsgirl says:

    Your stories are always worth it! I cannot wait until your next one😃😃


  12. murgatroid98 says:

    That was nice, and definitely worth it.


  13. YvonnAd says:

    Awwww. You always know how to make my heart ache for more. The last part of their conversation was just so sweet. I feel I should go see my dentist. I just love chapter 7 – Heaven. No words. Sex can be sex, but you know how to make it really romantic. And that’s my favorite part of your stories. You just made me love these two all over again. And I love how you made him always her first before beeel. I think there’s always something special that it’s him and no one else. Ok you bring out the romantic in me. I thank you for that.
    Going to a wedding today so you basically started me day perfect.
    Until your next one. Can’t wait.


    • YvonnA, I am SO happy I could make you swoon! It means the world to me to know that I bring out the romantic in you and that you fell in love with them. Sometimes sex is just sex, even for people in love, but no matter how you write it, the characters have to connect to each other. That’s my rule anyway. 🙂

      I’m sure we’ve all made the mistake of making someone like Bill our first. I know I did. The only good thing about that is that it makes the next (or last) that much sweeter. 🙂 Or, you could just start with the best and look no further!

      I hope you had a lovely time at the wedding, and I also hope you’ll enjoy my new story. I’m writing madly, so hopefully I’ll be able to post soon! 🙂 Thanks so much for reviewing!


  14. Ahhh! You are a marvelous writer! I look forward to more. Like NOW! MORE NOW! (whine) Just teasing you a bit. 😉


    • Only teasing a little? Don’t worry, I’ll send some your way soon. 🙂 Thanks for the love for my writing. You’re the nicest. 🙂 Also, thanks for reviewing each and every chapter!


      • ok, a lot! I admit to have a stick and poking the writer to hurry. I also can perform bribes with food. Like cupcakes. Or cinnamon rolls or fruit roll ups? Ok the last one was weird but so am I! 🙂


      • What was really weird was that I imagined them all together, like a triple scoop ice cream: cupcake, cinnamon roll, and fruit leather. Who’s the weirdo now? 😉 You KNOW food bribes work, and also sharp sticks. If I had to chose, I’d pick the food, just so you know. 🙂

    Woo Hoo Wonderful End


  16. ericluver says:

    Loved it. Great story. Really enjoyed the last chapter. Pity it was too short…the story…not the penis!
    HA, take that Meridian. I can make penis jokes too 😋


    • Yeah, you really showed her! Maybe you two should have a penis joke competition. This could be good!

      I’m so glad you loved the story! I don’t know what it is about them, but I always know when I’ve reached the ending…Except when I wrote Getaway. I knew what I wanted the ending to be, but didn’t have a plan on how to get there (which is why it’s 67 chapters long. Also, because it’s mainly smut!). When I finish one, it means I can start another, so that’s always good, right? 🙂 Thanks so much for reviewing!


    • Here’s my favorite penis joke (obviously told by someone attracted to women):

      I like my coffee like my women.

      Without a penis.


  17. patsy1965 says:

    I started reading this and then got distracted and found it at the bottom of the email list. My bad 😉 (for taking this long to review). It was definitely “Worth It”. But, I now need a cold shower. I get so excited when I see a prelude to something you’ve got in the works. It makes Patsy a happy happy girl.


    • Well, you know how I love to make Patsy a happy girl! Win-win! 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed the story, you are so kind to come back to it, read and review! I hope you didn’t slip in your cold shower, then you’d have to have someone come rescue you…maybe a firefighter or something? Hmm, that doesn’t sound so bad. 🙂 Thanks again!


      • patsy1965 says:

        Hmm, shower, firefighter… Sorry, I got lost in the romance novel in my brain. Now all I need is some cheesy porn music and to be 30 years younger 😉


      • LOL. No, not the cheesy porn music!! It’s so bad. 🙂 The firefighter is shirtless, of course, because it got ripped on the way into your house to rescue you. Obviously, you need mouth-to-mouth. Not because you’re not breathing, but just cuz it’s good. 🙂


  18. ashmo2000 says:

    Everything that happened, happened for a reason and it was well Worth It 😉


  19. Cyndi says:

    Yes it was. You are such a good writer. Thank you for sharing with us.
    Love that Bill met his end.


    • Aww, thank you Cyndi! I appreciate your compliments and love more than you know. 🙂 I kind of like killing Bill. I don’t know why I steered clear of that for so long. Thank you very much for reviewing!!


  20. andrea says:

    They are short stories and they are too short stories … yes, we would like more of all your good stuff !!


    • LOL I never say never to continuing stories. Sometimes a new chapter will crop up in my brain when I’m ‘done’ with a story, which is why you should follow me…in case I decide to add to something I’ve marked ‘finished’. 🙂
