Eric left the tent and made his way back to Sookie, smiling in the entire way. He had just pulled the wool over the eyes of the great Fae King and was going to tell Sookie his brilliant, cunning and slightly crazy plan.
He swept over the tent flaps and smiled when he saw Sookie, lying down on the furs, back towards him. She was naked and he could see the curve of her bottom peaking out from just above the furs, the fine porcelain skin of her back shining in the midnight moonlight, her soft curls trailing across the oversized pillow she had tucked under her petite head. Eric wanted to fuck her, so badly.
“Sookie,” he whispered, disposing of his pants and climbing in behind her, making sure to press his hardened cock against the curve of her arse cheeks. His hand trailed down her arm, sneaking into the furs and touching her between her soft legs.
“Eric,” Sookie moaned, opening both her eyes and her legs, “I tried to stay awake.”
“I know my lovely,” he whispered, entering a finger and watching her groan. He already loved the way he made her feel, the way she made him feel. “We must discuss something.” Eric entered a second finger and was guessing Sookie was well awake now.
“N-Now?” she muttered, gripping the furs. Eric wished to turn her over, sheath himself inside and make love to her for eternity but knew he had to tell her of his plan.
“Now, my sweet.” Gently, he removed his fingers and sat up, watching as she pulled herself up also. “The visitor I had, was no normal man.”
“Who was it?”
“Sookie, your great-grandfather came to see me.”
Sookie gasped and tugged the furs tighter into her hands. She was obviously angry. “What did the bastard want!” she shouted, not caring if he heard her. “I never wanted to see him again.”
“Sookie, my darling. He came to retrieve you. He thought to persuade me to give you back, to have you return to Fae.”
“Sneaky old man,” she muttered, eyeing Eric, “What did you say? Eric, I don’t want to go back to him. I want to stay here with you.”
“As I want you to stay, your returning to Fae will help with many things,” he replied and soon regretted his words as a shocked and disgusted look appeared on Sookie’s face. “No, no, my fairy, I am not letting you go. I am merely using your grandfather’s words against him. When you return to Fae, you are to be crowned and your grandfather has agreed to have his Fae guard us during the day. The war will be over, you will be in power and I will have you all to myself.”
Sookie smiled and held her hand out to him. He took it and joined her on the furs. Taking her face his hands, he kissed her and smiled against her soft lips. “Do this for me, dearest?” he asked her. Sookie eyed him and wondered if he was telling her the absolute truth. Holding her hand up, she touched his cheek and closed her eyes. “What are you doing, love?” She hushed him and her fingers began to tingle against his cheek.
“In our world, we can touch those we care about the most, and hear their hearts. Their thoughts and their feelings towards the person, who was touching them, to see how they really feel. Touching you, your face and feeling your heart and feelings, I can see you feel true about this, about us.” Her hand trailed down his face, down his neck and touched just above where his once-beating heart lay.
Their eyes met and she wished to kiss him, make love to him and stay in his arms forever, the way she wanted. “Yes, yes I’ll do this for you.”
AN: Another day another chapter. Kind of a filler chapter but still had meaning. Reviews are love.
