We sat watching TV while I ate my pizza. I kept glancing over at Eric because it certainly didn’t seem as though he was trying to relax. It looked like he had a million things on his mind. How was I supposed to relax if I could tell he was sitting there trying to come up with ways to get me out this mess?
“Eric, you aren’t relaxing,” I told him once I had finished my pizza.
“I’m not the one who needs to relax. I don’t want you to be stressed out any more than you already are. I’ve given you a great deal to think about tonight,” he said while he looked at me apologetically.
“How long is it before dawn?”
“Just a couple of hours. I know you are tired,” he sighed. “How about I show you to where you will be sleeping?” I nodded and followed him.
We walked into what looked like the master bedroom, and then into the closet. His closet was larger than my bedroom and filled with clothing. On the back wall of the closet, he opened up a security panel. Once he put in his code and scanned his thumbprint, the door hissed open and he held out his hand for me.
“The security code I gave you last night and your fingerprint will work here, so if you want to come upstairs during the day you can.”
Once again, it was as if there was another entire house down here. The furniture was all very big, dark, and comfortable looking. It looked very much like Eric.
“This floor is just as beautiful as the one upstairs. It’s very you.”
He turned to look at me with a smirk, “Thank you. Pam doesn’t like it, but if it was up to her everything would probably be pink and ridiculously feminine. I’ll have to show you her room sometime.”
We walked until we came to his bedroom door. “Why don’t you try using your security code again to make sure it works? I would hate for you to be stuck in here if you didn’t want to be.”
After I went through all the security, the door opened and it had to have been at least three inches of steel. He definitely took his security seriously.
“The bedrooms down here are all lined with iron and silver in both the doors and walls. No one can break in. You will be very safe down here, I promise you.”
“Thank you for taking such good care of me. I really appreciate it, and I want you to know that I feel very safe with you,” I said and gave him a small smile. He gave me a nod and ushered me into the bedroom.
After turning on a small light, I finally got to see what Eric’s bedroom looked like. The main focal point was the very large bed. It was even bigger than the one I saw last night. All the furniture was a very dark wood. There was only the bed, a couple of nightstands, a chair by the closet, and a dresser with a mirror above it in the room.
“Here is the bathroom if you want to freshen up before you go to bed. I’ll leave you to get some rest and see you tomorrow night after I rise.”
“Wait! You’re not staying with me? Will you at least stay until I fall asleep?” I hated sounding and being this needy. “Unless you have other things you need to be doing.”
“I will stay if you would like me to. Go ahead and get ready for bed,” he said while he ushered me into the bathroom.
After going through my usual routine and brushing my teeth, I realized that I didn’t have anything to sleep in. I didn’t even know if Pam had brought me any pj’s. I figured I would ask Eric if I could borrow another shirt.
“Eric, may I borrow a shirt to sleep in?” I said when I stepped out of the bathroom.
He walked into his closet and came out with a black Fangtasia t-shirt.
“Thank you,” I went back into the bathroom, changed my clothes, and put on Eric’s t-shirt. I’d have to go upstairs tomorrow to see what all Pam had brought me. When I walked into the room, Eric was sitting on the edge of the bed looking at his phone. I walked to the other side of the bed and got in.
“If you have important stuff to do, you don’t have to stay with me.”
He smiled at me, set his phone on the nightstand on his side of the bed, and then took off his boots. He stood up and took them into the closet. Wow, he was tidy! I’d always heard men lived like pigs. I knew Jason sure did.
“I was just checking my email. I’m done with work for tonight. I can stay with you,” he said while sliding into bed.
We both lay on our backs for a few minutes staring at the ceiling before Eric broke the silence.
“Are you uncomfortable sleeping in here with me?” he asked.
“No. I don’t know. I was just thinking about everything,” I said and looked over at him. “It’s so much to take in. I don’t know what to do. Maybe I should just leave on my own. I appreciate your offer, but all these things are just too much for you to take on. I never wanted to put you or anyone else in this position,” I said while the tears once again welled up.
“Come here,” he said as we moved closer together and I laid my head down on his chest and he wrapped his arms around me.
“I know this is a very major decision, but I have told you that I will do anything you want. I will not allow the Queen or anybody else to take you.”
“Why are willing to do so much and put yourself at such risk for me?” I asked him, and he pulled back a little so he could look down upon me.
“I don’t want anything bad to happen to you. I, I … I care about you,” he said while he tightened his arms around me, no longer looking at me.
I stretched up and lightly kissed him on the lips, “I never thought I would say this, but I care about you, too, Eric Northman.”
The next thing I knew Eric was hovering above me. He had a slight smile on his face while he lowered his head and gently kissed me. I never thought a 1000-year-old vampire could be so sweet and so gentle. After a few minutes, our kisses were becoming more passionate and our hands began to wander.
I ran my hands all over his back, over his broad shoulders while feeling his muscles move as his hands rubbed up my arms and sides. When I finally needed to breathe, his kisses trailed down my neck. I reached down to pull off his shirt, and he sat up to help me remove it. All I could do was to stare at him for the moment.
Eric Northman had the body of Adonis. I had never seen a more perfect chest and abs. I ran my hands over the fine muscles of his stomach and trailed them up to his pecs. I sat up, kissed one of his nipples, and then took it into my mouth.
“Bite just a little,” he told me, and when I did, he let out a moan that made my panties even wetter. I switched to the other side, and then worked my way up his neck, and then back to his mouth.
He ran his tongue over my bottom lip and I opened my mouth letting him in. I was certain it was impossible to ever get tired of kissing this man. Our tongues battled for dominance while his hands reached to pull off my shirt.
Once my shirt had disappeared, Eric’s hands moved to my knead my breasts and pluck my nipples.
“You have the most beautiful breasts I have ever seen,” he said while he stared at them in obvious wonder.
His kisses trailed down my neck to my breasts. He took one nipple in his mouth and swirled his tongue around it. My other nipple was being plucked and rolled with his fingers. Oh… It felt so good… I moaned and arched my back to meet him.
His kisses began trailing down to my stomach and he continued with open mouth kisses down to my panties. He hooked his fingers in them and off they went!
I had never felt this before. Bill had never done this and while it felt so incredible, I was so nervous. He licked up my leg leaving open mouth kisses, though when he got to my core, I all at once became tense.
“What are you doing?” I squeaked out nervously.
“Sookie, why are you so nervous? Do you want me to stop?”
“I just don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve never done this before. I’m sorry I’m so nervous. I guess you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into.”
“I know you don’t have a lot of experience and that’s okay with me. I’m trying to give you pleasure so just relax and if you want me to stop, I will.”
“OK, I’ll try…”
He smirked and buried his head between my thighs. Then I felt his tongue lick me from my entrance to my clit.
“Oh My God, Eric! That feels so good!” I managed to moan out. . I felt him smile against me. He inserted first one finger then another. His tongue and fingers found the perfect rhythm, and it wasn’t long before I felt the warmth of my impending orgasm wash over me. I was moaning and writhing all over the place. I shouted Eric’s name when my orgasm took me away.
Once I was finally coming down, he started kissing back up my body. When he finally reached my lips, I could taste myself on him, and I was even more turned on.
I ran my hands down his chest to his pants. I fumbled while trying to unbutton and unzip them.
“I need a little help,” I giggled. “You’re wearing too much clothing.”
Eric stood up and ripped his off pants, and then I saw him in all his naked glory for the first time. My eyes scanned his body, but when they reached his gracious plenty, I got a bit intimidated. It. Was. Huge. I knew I hadn’t seen many, but he was above average, above large even!
“I don’t think that thing’s going to fit inside of me,” I said apprehensively.
He smirked while he crawled back up the bed toward me. “It will fit, don’t worry. We don’t have to do this if you don’t want to. I don’t want to pressure you. I wasn’t expecting this tonight.”
“I want to do this. I’m just worried it’s going to hurt.”
“It’s not going to hurt. We’ll take it slow. If you want to stop at any time, we will. Relax and let me take care of you.”
I nodded and put my hands on his face to pull him down to me. “Kiss me.”
His lips pressed against mine and we both smiled. “Tell me you want this. I need you to tell me that you want this, that you want me,” he said as he rested his forehead against mine.
“I want you. I want this,” I said with a big smile on my face.
He smashed his lips to mine, rubbed his gracious plenty along my slit a few times, and then pressed his tip against my entrance. His kisses were the most sensual thing I had ever experienced while he slowly pushed his way in. How many different ways could this man kiss? I couldn’t wait to find out.
Once he was all the way in, he stilled and looked me in the eyes. “Are you alright?”
“Yes, please keep going,” I said as I smiled up at him.
He leaned down to kiss me while I thrust my hips up. He moved in and out of me slowly while kissing me. I ran my hands down to his award-winning ass and pushed him in as deeply as he could go while I met him thrust for thrust.
We picked up speed and he trailed kisses down my neck, and then took one of my nipples into his mouth. “I’m so close, Eric. So close.”
He snaked his hand between us and his thumb slid along my wetness until he reached my clit rubbing it in a quick rhythm. I felt my orgasm building and building.
“Oh God, Eric! Don’t stop!” When my climax took over me, I called out his name over and over. He kept moving for a few more thrusts until I felt him tense up and he groaned out my name. “Detta är bäst. Detta är rätt,” He said when he leaned down to gently kiss me. He supported his weight on his elbows while he nuzzled my neck for a few minutes before finally moving over to the side and bringing me with him.
While I tried to catch my breath, Eric rubbed my back and I laid my head on his chest. Once I finally had my breathing under control, I asked him, “What was that you said there at the end? Was that Swedish?”
His hand stilled on my back before he replied, “It’s Swedish.”
“What did you say?”
He wrapped both arms around me and squeezed. “I said this is best. This is right.”
“It was pretty good,” I said with a lazy, sated smile.
“Pretty good? Is that all it was?” He smirked.
“Are you fishing?” I giggled. “I never thought you would need a compliment. You know, I’ve only been with Bill and I’m sure you’ll love this,” I said as I lifted my head up to look at him. “You’re the best I’ve ever had. It was great!”
He just smirked at me. “Was that the true Eric Northman experience?” I asked while I laid my head on his shoulder.
He raised his eyebrow up at me, replying. “That was the true Sookie Stackhouse experience.”
“Really and what is that experience?”
“Sookie,” he said as he looked up at the ceiling. “This is not easy for me. I’m not used opening up to anyone or talking about feelings.”
“I understand. I’m sure that it’s hard to change or do something different after 1000 years,” I said as I wrapped my arm around his stomach and gave him a little squeeze.
“I’ve never had sex with someone I care about. Ever. So yes, I wanted to make sure it was good for you, that I didn’t hurt you or that you would regret it,” he said as he tilted his head looking down to face me.
I rolled on top of him and looked into his eyes. “Of course I don’t regret it. You asked me if I wanted to continue and you were willing to stop if that was what I wanted. You didn’t hurt me and, although it wasn’t something I had planned, I wanted you. I still want you. I never thought sex with you would ever be anything like that,” I said as a blushed crept onto my cheeks.
“Like what?” He asked.
“I don’t know,” I shrugged. “It wasn’t fast vampire sex. It was nice, slow, and sweet. Kind of like how I used to think you were an asshole, but now I get to see this side of you.”
“I’m still an asshole, Sookie, and only you get to see this side of me,” he sighed and gave me a light squeeze. “I’m going to need go to Fangtasia this week. I’ll have to treat you differently, and you can’t fight with me in front of anyone. I can’t be made to look weak, especially now.”
“I know and I don’t want you to look weak. We don’t fight that much now, do we?”
“No, we haven’t been fighting. I’m just worried that your feelings may get hurt by something that I do. Something that I don’t want to do, but need to do in front of other vampires, and then you will try to fight with me.”
“I understand. I really do,” I replied.
“Not that I want to pressure you, but if we had a blood bond and we were in a situation, you would know what I was feeling. I could send you caution or calm, but I know that you are smart and you will not overreact to situations,” he said, and then smiled at me.
“Thank you. I’ll try my best to not overreact. I want you to know that I’m really thinking about the blood bond.”
“I know you are and if you have any questions, then you can ask me and I will try to answer the best I can.”
“I know you will and thank you,” I said and leaned down and kissed him.
I sat up and started to grind myself against him. Eric’s hands went to my breasts and started to knead them.
I rose up and impaled myself on him, and we both let out a groan. While I started to rock back and forth, Eric sat up to kiss my neck and moved down to suck on my nipples.
“That feels so good, Eric.” He moved his hands to my hips to help me move faster. I called out his name once more when my orgasm pulled me over.
The next thing I knew I was on my back with Eric pumping into me quickly. I felt Eric tense up right as my felt my second orgasm building up in me. He growled out when his cool seed exploded in me. His hand moved down to rub my clit in fast circles and I dug my nails into his back, yelling his name over and over.
Eric pulled out and I immediately felt the loss of our connection and let out a small whimper. He rolled off of me, and then laid his head on my chest. As I caught my breath, I ran my fingers through his hair.
After we laid there for a little while, Eric got up, went to the bathroom, came back with a washcloth, and cleaned me up.
Once he was back into bed, I snuggled up to his side. With my head on his chest, he ran his fingers through my hair putting me into a sleepy trance.
“Good night, Eric,” I said as I yawned and kissed his chest right above his heart.
