The End

Chapter 1

Thanks to Meridian for  inspiring this little tidbit. The End

It has been ten years, ten very long yet very short years, for Eric Northman.

Those years have been very kind to him even if the end of what brought it on broke his heart into a million pieces.

The end was the beginning of the rest of his unlife. Even though he had cherished her, Sookie Stackhouse had been too naïve, too immature, too besotted with someone else to see his actions for what they truly were.

She may have treated vampires as just another person but she looked at the world through rose coloured glasses. Glasses which someone should have ripped off her face and stomped beneath their feet.

Sookie saw that the world had flaws, she knew it with every fibre of her being yet because of her disability, her damned telepathy, she never learned how to read between the lines, how to give the benefit of the doubt or even how to do something as simple as read body language.

Eric had tried, truly tried, to let her know him and teach her how the Supernatural world worked but she was bound and determined to live for her precious Bill. The one vampire who hurt her many times over. The one vampire she forgave all his wrong doings time and time again yet the ones who truly did try to do right by her, tried to teach her, she would barely give the time of day to.

Finally, one year to the day after the show down with the Yakuza she came to him. SHE came to HIM.

She may have come to him and apologized for her actions, or inactions as it were, but the hurt was still there.

“I’m so sorry Eric,” she had said.

“For what,” he had asked with a raised eyebrow and scepticism evident in his tone.

“For treating you the way I did. For not believing in you. For not giving you a chance.”

“What would you have done differently Sookie,” he had asked without a hint of the old lust.

She had looked at him with her own scepticism and sighed, “I don’t know Eric. I just don’t know what I could have done differently.”

That one sentence showed him just what he needed to do in order to gather the pieces of his heart and go forward with the rest of his existence. The words and their true meaning saddened him greatly but he had always known she would be the end of him. Whether it was the end of the man he was or his True Death he hadn’t known before that moment but now he knew.

He sighed deeply as he gathered his thoughts and put them into words, “If there is nothing you would have done differently then there is no future for us.

Your apology is accepted but it would be best if you got on with your life as Mrs. Merlotte or Mrs. Herveaux or even Miss Stackhouse but it will never be as I once hoped, it will never be as Mrs. Northman.” He then got up from the table at the restaurant they met in, paid the bill and left her sitting there, staring after him with tears streaming down her cheeks.

He had felt guilty for exactly three tenths of a second then decided that while he did love her, he wasn’t IN love with her.

In that short time frame he felt the pieces of his heart come back to him and they had slowly mended themselves back together as he went about his nightly business of taking care of Nu Blood, teaching his youngest progeny and fending off Pam’s errant remarks about a certain former flame. He may no longer be in love with her but that was no reason to speak deprecatingly about her or pretend she had never been a part of his life.

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

P. A. Clouden: The world you've created here is powerful, dark and eerily prophetic. It's a poignant look at what a dystopian America can look like and how far off we are from it. I love the social commentary and message you're providing here. Very strong start.I also agree with Caitlin that some more detai...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well. I read it all in one sitting, and your strong style doesn't falter one bit throughout. I think I liked this even better than some of the "big" authors' works, ...
