Chapter 18 – Fucking Ridiculous

EPOV

I stood there watching long after the tail lights had disappeared from my sight, while sifting through the complex emotions the blond passenger effortlessly pulled from me. On one hand she was a distraction I could do without.

On the other, she was quickly becoming a necessity I couldn’t do without.

Everything had always been black and white before she’d come into my life and forced her rainbow kaleidoscope into my world. But I couldn’t allow myself to become pussified by the rose colored hue her presence evoked.

The logical side of my brain knew there was too much on the line to be so concerned with a not-quite human girl. Pam’s growing hope at feeling me near, countered by the growing weakness I could feel emanating from her should have been enough to keep me focused. But instead I’d allowed myself to become equally focused on all of the ways I could deflower one virgin telepath.

It was disconcerting.

I had more control than this. I had to have more control than this. Me fucking my blond temptress would do nothing to keep my kind safe.

There were strategies to make. Plans to carry out. Forces to be dealt with.

And yet I’d taken the time to deliver a cup of coffee and nuzzle her awake like she was my…my…whatever the fuck she was. I had time to figure that out.

But now wasn’t it.

So I shook my head, hoping to shake off the absurdity of where my thoughts had wandered, and stalked off towards my SUV. The sun would be rising soon and while I felt the pull of the coming dawn, I would need to fight it off for as long as I could. Cell phones, while plentiful and convenient, posed too big of a threat to be used so close to the government facility. Our location could be tracked. Our conversations spied upon.

The whole of the US government was too big of an adversary to discount any of their technological advantages. We had to play our offense close to the vest. Keep our presence hidden from them for as long as possible to try and stay off the grid.

Perhaps, once Sookie’s smitten shifter arrived, he could act as our carrier pigeon.

I closed myself into my coffin in the back of my truck and smiled at the vision of the winged rat in my sights as I pulled the trigger on my imaginary rifle. If only they kept their animal shape in death, I could roast him on a spit over an open fire and feed him to the wolves.

Feeling Sookie’s calm falter jarred me from my thoughts and I nearly snarled for Flood when I felt her determination override her hesitance. That same plotting sensation I’d felt from her earlier quickly overtook her emotions as I felt her resolve strengthen.

Soon followed by an odd combination of disgust and amusement.

If the wolf was having crude thoughts about what he wanted to do with her – joking to her about what he fantasized doing to her – I would have his head on a pike.

And all who came after him, seeking her affections, would learn who the true Lord of the Flies was.

Fuck.

I needed to focus on our mission and not the ways in which I could skin an admiring wolf because he dared to think of putting his paws on my Lover.

But my focus was reliant on the sun’s absence from the sky, so when it made its appearance, my consciousness disappeared with it soon after. Only a blip in time to me, I awoke from my daytime death hours later still feeling tightly wound and only when I sensed her presence nearby – and unharmed – did I slowly relax. The tension would never fully leave my body while we were under threat, but I no longer felt like ripping the lid from my coffin and merely pushed it open when I felt the last of the sun’s rays disappear from the sky.

“You’re up!” she greeted me with a smile when I emerged from the truck to find her sitting off to the side holding a mug.

I returned her smile with a small one of my own, but not wanting to repeat my previous foolishness by becoming singularly focused on her I rearranged my features to show my determination and asked, “Were you able to learn anything useful?”

“Yes,” she replied, now matching my expression and tone, and added, “We met some Weres and a shifter from Dallas who managed to get hired at that place where the vampires are being kept. The shifter, Luna, said they’re from Dallas and they’re just keeping an eye on things. She claims she’s not going to stick their necks out for us, but she’s willing to meet up with us tonight and tell us what she knows.”

Insider knowledge would be a definite boon in our favor, but my elation was tempered by my suspicion. My first thought hearing her claim was that it could be a trap – a thought I would have suspected Sookie had overheard with her gift had I not already known she couldn’t hear my kind – when she offered without any provocation, “She was on the up and up. I listened in on everything she wasn’t saying too.”

So young and innocent and yet her own suspicious thoughts and tactical reasoning gave some insight on how her gift could be viewed as a curse. Always knowing, whether she wanted to or not, the true motives behind anyone’s words. And yet instead of becoming jaded by her experiences, she only seemed stronger because of them.

And once again I was allowing myself to become preoccupied by my blond obsession.

Shaking off where both of my heads were trying to lead me, I asked, “When and where is this meet with the shifter to take place?”

Perhaps the dog would take a liking to one of his own kind and take to trying to hump her leg instead of my lover’s.

“Eight o’clock tonight at some place a few miles outside of town,” Sookie replied, spouting off the address offhandedly, while I could feel her plotting again. But before I could ask what her mind was up to, she answered my unspoken question with, “I think you should stay here. I can go with Flood and listen in while he gets the information we need. She would probably be more comfortable talking to one of her own anyway.”

“What?” I asked incredulously. And thinking perhaps her suggestion had more to do with whatever lingering perception she may have had seeing me at my weakest, I moved towards her and snarled, “And what reason would I have to stay behind?”

She felt no fear at my now looming stance over her and her worry steamrolled through her veins as she replied just as incredulously, “To keep you safe! She said she could smell you on me, but she didn’t recognize your scent. After everything we know about vampire families being snatched up, who’s to say they won’t double cross us if their asses are on the line and offer you up to Doctor Frankenstein to complete their match set with Pam?”

Fucking. Ridiculous.

It was fucking ridiculous how affected I was feeling her concern for my wellbeing.

It was fucking ridiculous how quickly I could become singularly focused on her.

It was fucking ridiculous how much I wanted her.

I couldn’t even form the words to declare her worries for naught. Assert how I had the advantage as a thousand year old vampire, with a millennium of battle strategy behind me, pitted against humans who had not been alive for even a tenth of my life. Humans who had no concept of what I had both seen and done in those thousand years in order to survive and who were no match for me.

Not when she knew the truth.

Not when we both knew nothing could be taken for granted. My own hubris had already cost me mine and my child’s freedom, and all of my fingers until Sookie had selflessly come to my rescue. So it was both from experience and my respect for her that I actually took the time to ponder the wisdom of her words before I conceded, “There are no guarantees there won’t come a time when we could be betrayed by the shifter, but nothing we are doing is without risk. However I won’t be risking you if it can be helped and your gift is too great to not utilize it in this situation, so I will be attending the meet tonight.”

The two-natured were difficult – if not impossible at times – to glamour and Sookie’s ability to read their thoughts would give us an advantage. One I might not be so willing to take if it weren’t for the fact my own child was being held prisoner.

But I would do whatever needed to be done in order to free Pam.

Her eyes narrowed back at me in return, but if she’d thought to argue with me over it further, she changed her mind and only huffed out, “Fine.”

“Fine?” I repeated, moving my hands to her hips and pulling her body flush against my own. I could feel her agitation just as well as I could feel her heartbeat now pulsing underneath her skin. And hoping to flirt my way out of the doghouse I could feel she had mentally shoved me into, I attempted to soothe the savage Sookie in my midst by smirking at her sourpuss and said, “Yes, you are fine.”

Her eyes rolled into the back of her head as her lips emitted a sound not unlike a tire that had sprung a small leak, but a small smile played on her lips when she replied, “You’re cute, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t a giant pain in my butt.”

“Cute?” I grimaced. “Puppies are cute. But I suppose your being vertically challenged would make me a giant. However I’m shocked you want to try anal when you haven’t even allowed me to fu…”

ERIC!” she hissed, turning a nice bright shade of red as her eyes darted around to make sure we hadn’t been overheard. Satisfied no one had – she’d missed Thalia’s version of a grin – she turned back to me and her finger poked me in the chest as she warned, “Keep it up mister and you’ll never get a pass to enter any hallway of mine.”

“Oh, I can keep it up,” I taunted, unable to stop myself from grinning at her embarrassment over the double entendre. “And I’ll make sure you enjoy every pass I make through your hallowed hall.”

“Good lord,” she chided, using her hand to fan at her face.

“I believe the phrase you’ll be chanting is ‘Oh my God!’

“Cocky!” she gasped.

“Yes,” I conceded, with another smile. “My cock is what we were talking about, no?”

“Oh my God!” she cried out, burying her face in her hands.

“See?” I laughed. “And I haven’t even touched you yet.”

“Keep it up and I’ll be the one biting you,” she growled from behind her hands.

“If you do that then it will never go down.”

“You…I…” she stuttered and a look of determination came over her face, while she tried to hide her amusement and only said, “I guess the only way to shut you up is to stick something in that dirty mouth of yours.” Moving her hair off to one side and putting her neck on display, she added, “I hope you wanted your dinner hot because my blood is practically boiling right now.”

Unable to resist her enticing offer completely, I pressed my lips against her neck and quietly offered, “Hot and bothered. Just the way I like it.”

“Just shut up and eat,” she whispered breathily.

Our banter had me hot and bothered as well, so her blood wasn’t the only thing I was craving. But knowing we were short on time – and she was short on patience – I knew now wasn’t the time for me to try and play gardener.

Either by deflowering her or nipping at her tight little buds I could feel poking out through her shirt.

But Sookie was no fangbanger and I wouldn’t treat her like one by feeding from her in front of everyone else. Nor did I want the scent of her blood enticing any of the others. Even if she hadn’t tasted like the finest mead, after being on a steady diet of TruBlood I didn’t trust that any vampire in our group would not be tempted enough to challenge me for her.

So I placed a soft kiss on her neck before moving my lips to her ear and whispered, “Hold that thought.”

While her shiver worked its way down her spine – and her lust worked its way through our tie – I went off in search of Flood and told him we would meet him along with the others at the location where we were to meet up with the shifter. Herveaux would be traveling with him and I handpicked five other vampires to accompany them, giving them orders to secure the perimeter once the four of us were inside. The vampires couldn’t risk being spotted, in case the human authorities were out on patrol, so they would have to travel on foot, sticking to the terrain and off of the main roads.

It was just barely after seven, but I had memorized a map of the area and knew I could fly us there in only a few minutes. Leaving for our destination now would serve a dual purpose.

We would have the privacy I wanted for us both when I fed and Sookie would be able to sense if others were nearby.

And their intent.

And given Sookie’s suspicious look as I rejoined her, she was likely questioning my intent as well. So I played down the more nefarious side of my plans and only said, “We will leave now and make sure the site is safe before the others arrive.”

It was the only warning I gave her before I took her in my arms and shot us up into the air. She screeched out in surprise and then beat her fists against my shoulders before gripping my body like her life depended on it as she chastised, “It is customary to inform your server when you place your order that you want your meal to go!”

I chuckled at her rebuke and gripped her ass, while I rubbed myself against her and replied, “Don’t worry. I’ll make amends for my faux pas with my tip.”

Even with the wind whipping at our bodies, I could still feel the heat from the flush of her skin at my words and she ended up giggling out, “You might be strong enough to bulldoze your way through the base of the Rocky Mountains, but I doubt even you have the strength to play ‘Just the tip’.”

She was right. After being cockblocked by Clancy’s exploding ass the night before, my level of control where she was concerned was at an all-time low, so I warned her of that fact by saying, “You’re playing with fire, Miss Stackhouse.”

We were already coming up to the address where the meet would take place and looking down it appeared to be an abandoned property in the middle of nowhere. A ranch of some sort that had seen better days, but seeing the foreclosed sign told me all I needed to know for now.

The bank owned it, not any one human, so I wouldn’t need an invitation to enter.

“That’s funny,” she snickered, perhaps not realizing just how true my cautionary statement was. “With all of your cocky promises, I would’ve thought it was more like a stick of dynamite.” Her legs were already wrapped around my body, so she didn’t have to move much more than her hips as she pulled away slightly and crashed them back into my own, while she laughingly bellowed out, “BOOM!”

Well, I did warn her.

I did a quick sweep of the property as we descended, not detecting any other recent scents, but needing to be certain, I asked, “Do you detect any others?”

“Nope,” she replied, still feeling amused, while she made sure to pop the ‘P’.

Her answer gave me hope I would be popping something else of hers very soon, so I flew us through the large doors at the top of barn and gently eased her down on the hay inside, automatically moving my hips into hers and asking, “And now? Do you detect anything, now?”

“Yep,” she answered, still popping the ‘P’, but it wasn’t amusement she felt.

Her lust had skyrocketed feeling my dick trying to bulldoze its way through the denim barriers, so she made the first move by pulling my lips down to meet her own. Without her previous confession, I never would have guessed at her inexperience in this moment because she moved her body against mine like a skilled seductress. Her hands and lips worked in tandem to drive me insane, so when she raked her tongue across my now descended fangs and the first drop of her blood moved across my palate, I was done for.

Any and every vampire in our fold could explode and I wouldn’t care. There was only one explosion I was concerned with at the moment and the fuse had been lit.

But as much as I wanted to spend hours upon hours learning all the ways in which I could make her eyes cross, I knew we didn’t have the time. The others would be arriving soon. Cockblocking sons of bitches, who I might very well end for unknowingly cockblocking us now. But knowing I would need those same cockblocking sons of bitches in the coming days, I didn’t want to waste any more time.

And again she made me wonder if perhaps my mind wasn’t always silent to her when she whispered against my lips, “We need to hurry before they get here.”

“I couldn’t agree more, Lover.”

Her shirt was the first to go, followed quickly by her bra and my mouth moved down her chest to her own twin mountain peaks I wouldn’t mind bulldozing my way through, while my hands moved further south to rid her of her pants. Feeling no hesitation from her only added fuel to the fire, rapidly spreading its way through me.

Sookie wanted this as much as I did.

And had I not had a blood tie with her to confirm my suspicions, her own actions would have buoyed my beliefs. When I removed her shirt, so too did she remove mine. When my hands moved to rid her of her jeans, once again she returned the favor and when her arms’ reach hindered her from completing the task, she used her feet to finish the job.

Completely bare before me, she was a sight to behold. One I wished I had more time to gaze upon, but time was of the essence.

And the essence emanating from her lower half, no longer hindered by any garments, was making me impossibly harder.

But being short on time didn’t stop me from recalling her virgin state. I couldn’t just drive my body into hers, no matter how much I wanted to, without causing her a great amount of pain. So hoping to relieve some of that beforehand, I let my fingers do the walking and returned my lips to her own, working both sets of hers into a frenzy.

Slick with her arousal, I tested the waters by working a single finger inside of her and we both hissed at the sensation. It was a tight fit – one I couldn’t wait to feel fitted around another part of me – but feeling no pain from her, I continued on. My thumb went to her clit, moving in circles over the small bundle of nerves, and it didn’t take long before her approaching climax was barreling forward, with her moaning into my mouth as her inner walls clenched around my finger.

“Eric,” she cried out, breaking our kiss so her head could thrash from side to side as she begged, “Please.”

“Please what, Lover?” I asked, ghosting my lips over the vein throbbing in her neck. While I yearned to sink my fangs – among other things – into her, I didn’t.

Not yet.

“I…I…” she stuttered and eventually panted out, “More.”

Her eyes, when opened, were glazed over, but wanting to see her come undone, I nipped at her lower lip and whispered, “Look at me, Lover.”

Twin blue orbs locked onto my own, just as I doubled my efforts and the amount of fingers inside of her. Fingers I now had thanks to her and her wanton cries matched the wanton movements of her hips against my hand. I could smell the flash of blood when my intrusion tore free her maidenhead, as well as the sting of pain within her, but as soon as my fingertips curled and brushed over the hidden spot inside of her – not as elusive as the Fucking Tree from the night prior – she felt the opposite of pain.

Her entire body stiffened, with her inner walls clamping down on my fingers like a vice, and her back arched upwards while her mouth opened in a silent scream as her climax overtook her body.

A perfectly glorious creature.

She shuddered and twitched as I continued to draw out her orgasm with my hand and when her rapid heart rate began to slow, recognition returned to her eyes as a smile played on her lips when she softly breathed out, “Oh. My. God.”

“See?” I smirked.

“If you mean stars, then yes. I saw plenty of them,” she giggled.

Withdrawing my hand, her eyes darkened once more watching me lick my fingers clean and I pierced the tip of my forefinger before returning it to what I now thought of as its rightful home, to heal any lingering pain she might feel. Another small tremor rocked its way through her body at my actions, but when my thumb moved back to her clit, it was her hips that took over rocking.

Her hands pulled my head down to hers for another kiss before moving them down my body, running over my shoulders and down the length of my back, coming to grip my ass in each of them.

“We’re not done, are we?” she asked against my lips, while her hand wrapped around my cock and stroked my eyes into the back of my head.

Using her free hand to pull mine out from in between our two bodies, she placed me at her entrance just as I replied, “Not by a long shot.”

“I’ll say,” she chuckled nervously. “It’s so long you might want to be careful because it might scrape my teeth on its way in.”

“Lover,” I smiled. “If you can simultaneously give me a blow job while I’m fucking you, then rest assured you’ll never be rid of me.”

Our naked bodies were pressed against each other’s and yet she still managed to feel embarrassed over my words and her mouth opened to – I assumed – let me have it.

So I let her have it.

All of it.

With her body still primed from her previous orgasm, it didn’t take as much effort to work my way inside of her. But it took all of my effort to go slow. Feeling her inner sheath coax my shaft deeper inside of her body was like nothing I had ever felt before and I’d felt plenty.

Fucked plenty.

But now I felt like the virgin in this pairing because it was taking all of my willpower to not explode right then and there.

Tight.

Hot.

Slick.

All of it throbbed around me.

Within me.

My head. My body. All of it was wrapped up in and around her.

Every part of her.

All of her.

And without any conscious thought, just before my fangs completed our bodies’ union, my mouth growled out the one word all of those feelings evoked.

“Mine.”
