Charlaine Harris owns almost everything. I own the rest.
This one too? Who put all these NSFW chapters in here?!
After weeks of waiting, longing, and being patient, he finally had her. Her sweet blood pinged through his body, filling him with happiness and a hint of sorrow. He frowned. It was the same flickering memory from the first time he smelled her blood. Something long ago, locked away inside him.
Sookie touched his face, bringing him back to the present. “There it is again. Are you in pain?”
He searched his brain, trying to find the words to explain how he felt, but as soon as he focused on her, happiness took over again. “No, I’m happy.”
She closed her eyes and smiled. “Me too.” She sighed. “I don’t know how I’ve spent my life without you.”
“You won’t have to anymore.” He kissed her and she moved under him. Her soft body molding to his. “I meant what I said. I’ve never had better, and I don’t intend to let you get away.” He thrust into her.
Sookie’s smile fell as her mouth opened. The next time he pushed into her, all the air left her lungs with a huge puff.
“I’m crushing you,” he said and flipped their bodies so she was straddling him. “There. Now you can breathe easily.”
A blush spread from her cheeks down her neck to the top of her breasts. “I don’t really know… I mean… I’m not sure…” she stammered, looking away.
“You don’t have to know what you’re doing, just do what feels good,” he said, lifting up into her.
She held onto his chest to steady herself. He gripped her hips and showed her how to move. She moaned and closed her eyes, eventually taking over. Her fingernails dug into his skin as she dipped her hips.
Without needing his guidance, he moved his hands up, cupping her breasts and teasing her nipples. He rolled the hard nubs between his fingers, spurring her on. She lifted off him slightly and then slammed back down, gasping each time their bodies collided. Her orgasm hit hard and fast, tightening every muscle in her body. Her pussy strangled his cock, milking him with her quivering walls until he came, filling her again.
She collapsed on top of him, her heart thundering through her chest and into his, willing her blood to dance to the rhythm of her pulse inside his veins. He held her tightly, never wanting to let go.

Eric lounged on his bed long after Sookie had left, reading in an attempt to get his mind off her. It wasn’t working.
His door creaked open and Pam stepped inside. “Smells like sex in here.”
“Very observant,” he replied without looking up from the page.
“I guess the wait is over.”
He smiled, finding it impossible to resist. “Indeed.”
“We need to hire someone to help out at work.” Her voice took on a hint of irritation. “Marie came in tonight and I couldn’t be with her.”
“Marie?” He looked at her.
“The woman from last night? She came to see me. Alone.” She rolled her eyes. “Not that I could do anything about it.”
“Put up a sign. Until then, we’ll take turns. Tomorrow is your night.”
Her face brightened. “Thank you. I’ll post an ad and put up a sign. I’m going to call Marie, tell her to come over tomorrow night.” Pam turned to leave, but Eric stopped her.
“It’s a good idea … to get help. I’ll leave the hiring process up to you.”
“Thank you,” Pam said before leaving.

True to her word, Pam posted signs and by Tuesday, she had a few interviews lined up.
Eric, having explained the situation to Sookie over the phone, had to wait until that night before he could see her again. Once he was sure Pam had everything under control at Up All Night, he drove to Bon Temps.
Sookie stood on her front porch, waiting for him, as she had the previous week. A soft pink dress clung to her like a second skin, exposing her naked limbs. In the blink of an eye, he had her in his arms, pinned against the pillar on her front porch, his hands exploring the curves of her hot body. He sucked on her lips and thrust his tongue into her mouth, drawing out a sweet moan that went straight to his cock.
She was smiling when she pulled away, resting her head against the giant column of wood. “It’s nice to see you too.”
He glanced at the front door. “Is your grandmother inside?”
She shook her head slowly and her smile grew. “She’s out for the night. Bingo night. Sometimes the games last for hours.”
He growled and pressed his body against hers so she could feel his need.
She gasped and then said, “Would you like to see my room?”
With his hand in hers, she led him inside, down the hallway, past the living room, and into a small room. She closed the door behind them.
“This is it. My room.” She looked at the floor, where a worn rug nudged against her toes. “It’s not much.”
The walls were covered with tiny flowers, and the floor had been polished so many times that the grain of the wood stood out. Her tiny bed had a hand-sewn quilt draped over the end. The blankets and top sheet had been pulled back, waiting for them. “It’s perfect,” he said, kissing her again.
Her hands moved quickly, pushing up the hem of his shirt. “I’ve been thinking about you. Thinking about this.” She kissed his chest, sucking his nipple into her mouth before biting it lightly.
He moaned, encouraging her to go on, helping her lift his shirt up and off his body.
“Something changed inside me.” She gripped the waistband of his jeans. “I’m hungry. I need more.” She sighed when she got the button open and dipped her hand inside.
His hips jerked as she manipulated his cock, drawing it out of his boxers into the open.
“I want to please you,” she said as she pumped his dick with her hands. She licked her lips and then tugged him toward her bed, where she sat down. “I’ve seen it enough times in other people’s thoughts, so in theory…” She leaned toward him, and sucked his cock into her mouth.
Eric tensed trying to control himself, and then she swirled her tongue. His legs wobbled. She did it again. He gripped her shoulders, steadying himself. And then she bit him softly. He growled and thrust into her mouth.
She bobbed her head up and down, swirling, biting, and sucking until Eric neared the brink.
“I want to come inside you,” he said, needing more too.
Sookie looked up at him through her eyelashes and twisted her arms behind her back. With one smooth pull on the zipper, her dress fell open, revealing her naked breasts. His body shuddered as she stood, letting the dress fall to the floor around her feet. She wasn’t wearing panties either. She leaned against him, rubbing the head of his cock against her soft belly.
He shucked his remaining clothes as she sat back onto the bed. She crooked her finger, beckoning him.
“What do you want?” he asked as he approached her.
She smiled, leaned back, and drew up her legs, pointing her knees to the ceiling. Her head hung off the side of the bed, so when she spoke, her voice sounded far away. “I want you,” she answered.
He wedged his body between her legs, and caressed her wet heat. “Fuck,” he whispered. Cum dribbled out of his dick, so he pushed it down and rubbed it against her slit. She moaned and lifted her hips.
“Please. I want you. Now,” she demanded, wiggling her pussy against his cock.
He gripped her hips, braced his knees against the side of her bed, and pushed into her with one fluid thrust, his balls tightened when they bumped against her ass.
“Oh god. Yes,” she whispered, and then she locked her feet around him, keeping her body inclined.
With one hand supporting her ass, he dipped his other between her legs, finding her swollen clit. He pulled out of her and slammed back in as he rubbed her clit.
“Yes!” she screamed. So he did it again, holding back his own orgasm until she neared hers.
He thrust into her over and over, massaging her bundle of nerves again and again until her screams dissolved into a soft keening sound. When she came, he let himself go too, filling her with his own release. Her heels dug into his ass as she rode out her orgasm and then she relaxed.
Her breathing slowed down and then she lifted her head to look at him. “It just keeps getting better.”
He pulled out of her and turned her legs so the bed would support her. He eased himself onto the mattress next to her and smiled when she curled around him.
“Thanks for coming over,” she said, drawing on his chest.
“I’m happy to be here.” He picked up her hand and kissed it.
“My gran wouldn’t approve of this kind of thing,” she whispered in a serious voice. “You know, sex before marriage. I can hear her disapproval every time Jason shows up with a new girlfriend.” She sighed. “But it doesn’t feel wrong, no matter what they tell me at church.”
“Do you always listen to what they tell you at church?” he asked, trying not to laugh.
She shrugged. “Usually. It didn’t seem to make much difference.” She looked up at him then and added, “Until I met you.”
He kissed her hand again. “There’s nothing wrong with physical pleasure as long as everyone involved wants to be.”
She nodded. “That’s a good way to put it. Just the same, I don’t want my gran to find us in bed together.”
“Should I leave?” he asked, feeling a stab of pain in his heart.
“No. I’d like you to stay. Do you want to watch a movie with me or something?”
His shoulders relaxed. “I’d like that.”
After they dressed, they snuggled on the couch together, spending the rest of the night holding each other. Eric reveled in the intimacy, and being surrounded by her heat and scent was almost as good as fucking her.
Sookie had fallen asleep tucked against his body by the time Adele came home. She opened the door as a car pulled away. She poked her head into the living room where the T.V. flickered with the movie that happened to be on. Eric’s eyes met hers.
“Is she asleep?” Adele whispered. The floor creaked under her feet as she moved a little closer.
Eric nodded, not wanting to wake Sookie.
“Will you get her into bed? I’m beat,” she said.
“Of course. Good night, Adele.”
She smiled at him and disappeared down the hallway.
Over the course of the next few hours, Sookie nuzzled closer to Eric, ending up in his lap. With her head nestled against his shoulder, he focused on her breathing, soft and slow, and how good it felt to hold her.
She clung to his neck as he carried her to bed and she murmured his name as he kissed her forehead.
“See you soon,” he said, before closing her door and slipping out of the sleeping house.

“I know you said it’s up to me, but there’s a couple of applicants I can’t decide between,” Pam said the next night as they unlocked the bar. “They’re both qualified and easy to glamour.”
“So hire them both on a part-time basis.” Eric shrugged.
Of course, if he’d known how time-consuming training two new employees would be, he would’ve kept his mouth shut and let Pam make the decision. Night after night, he had to call Sookie and postpone.
Soon ended up being Sunday night. Eric ducked into his office to watch Sookie and Beth clean his house. He zoomed the camera in on Sookie’s face and smiled. “Hello, lover.”
As if she could hear him, she blew a kiss right to him.
When they were finished, Sookie said, “Hey, Beth. Do you want to go out with me? See if we can find you a good-lookin’ distraction?”
Beth laughed. “I don’t know if I’m ready for that.”
“Doesn’t hurt to look.”
“Can we go to that bar again? The first one we went to? I could look at that Viking all night long.”
Sookie blushed. “Me too.”
* * * *
Eric smoothed his hair and joined Pam at the bar, waiting for Sookie to arrive. The two new hires, Ginger and Belinda, seemed to be getting the hang of things, and kept busy cleaning and organizing. Truth be told, it was nice having help keeping the bar clean. It wasn’t Pam’s strongest quality.
Sookie and Beth came in a few minutes later, laughing and talking. As soon as they saw Eric, Beth giggled and Sookie smiled at him.
They sat at the same table they’d used before, and after some serious discussion, Beth approached the bar and ordered a couple of drinks, never letting her eyes wander from Eric. He, of course, was watching Sookie, hoping she would do more than smile to acknowledge him.
Within a half hour, a group of young men came in, taking the table closest to Sookie and Beth and ordered two pitchers of beer. A particularly friendly man turned in his chair and started talking with them, as if they were old friends. He scooted his chair close to Sookie and said something that made Beth laugh out loud.
Eric’s blood boiled, but he stood behind the bar, patiently waiting for Sookie to tell him to go away. It never happened. The man got closer and closer, and at one point, Sookie leaned toward him and whispered into his ear.
“That’s it,” he muttered and stormed across the room. He loomed over the man, growling. “She’s mine,” he said between clenched teeth.
Uh oh. Eric’s all jealous. On to Up All Night: Chapter 9
