Rock My World

By Heatherh24

Drama / Romance

Chapter 1

The sunset illuminated the Southampton beach house in a wild array of orange hues as I pulled up the narrow circle drive. I mentally squealed in excitement. I could hardly believe that I had been invited to Sophie Ann Rockchester's annual Southampton party. It was one of the year's biggest social occasions, and I was the low man or woman on the totem pole. I was just a simple intern hoping one day to join the ranks Rockchester international corporation and have my dream job as head of the marketing team. When I started this year I never dreamed I would be asked to attend the event of the season that all the senior VIPs raved about.

I guess there were some perks to dating the company's rock star lead computer programmer. Even though Bill would blush if I said such a thing to his face. He attended this only out of necessity to present his latest software to investors. Sophie Ann C.E.O. of Rockchester international had done everything but black mail him to attend. I suspected that was one of the reasons that I had been invited; to further obligate him to come. He was kind of a loner, and hated the ways of the rich and famous. That was one of the many things that we had in common or love of simplicity. I had been raised in a small town in Indiana so being here in New York had been a huge culture shock. Thankfully on my first day at R.I.C I had bumped into Bill, and he had made this big city a little safer to me showing me around we had found a sort of peace together.

As I approached the house I noticed a valet wearing an orange safety vest standing at the corner of the huge estate. I handed the keys to Bills blue Nova to him and tucked the ticket securely in my pocket saying a silent prayer that I didn't lose it. Since Bill had to ride down early with a group of executives to prepare for a presentation he had trusted me with his darling nineteen-sixty nine Nova that he loved dearly. He had nervously handed me the keys wincing as he got into the shiny black limo. I guess all men were like that though with their dream cars. I couldn't help the feeling of being honored that I had been allowed to drive it. In all honesty though I would have preferred something a little newer with power steering.

"Sookie!" Bill ran up to me wrapping me up in a powerful hug.

"Is everything ok.?" I secretly whispered leaning into him as his arms stayed tightly around me his expression a little frantic.

"Yeah, just some speed bumps with the investors I will explain later. Here let me get your bags." He said quickly grabbing my suitcase and large overnight bag and pulling them down the hall. I followed closely behind him, distracted by the extravagant house that reminded me of a house off the Rich and Famous T.V. Show. The floors were a sparkling pale marble that were complimented the rich khaki color of the walls. Although as we passed the living room I couldn't shake the feeling that I was in a museum with the art work being the only really source of furniture in the house. I preferred something a little more warm and cozy then this sterile environment. We rounded another corner where I noticed a large pair of windows overlooking the rushing waves of the sea. I stood frozen as I stared at the beauty of the sea before me. How small we seemed when you looked out into the massive roaring waves that seemed never ending.

"Why hello?" I turned shocked to see a large man towering over me giving me a wicked grin. I stood there unable to speak somehow getting lost in his crystal blue eyes that reminded me somewhat of the sea that I had just been looking at.

"It is very beautiful is it not?" he gestured to the sea, but somehow I couldn't help thinking he was referring to himself. The lean muscles of his chest were almost visible through his tight black muscle shirt. I panted, as a couple of sweat beads ran down his neck between his finally constructed pecks. He had obviously been exercising because he too was panting softly.

"Yes, it is." I forced myself to say turning back to the window trying to hide my obvious attraction to him.

"Sookie, I thought I had lost you." Bill said coming to stand beside me.

"Bill, you didn't tell me that your girlfriend was so lovely." He said looking at him with a half grin his eyes never leaving mine.

"Sookie, may I introduce you to Eric Northman from Northman Enterprises. Eric, this is Sookie Stackhouse she is an intern at R.I.C." Bill gestured with his hands introducing us, but I couldn't help but feel the tension that radiated from them both.

"Nice to meet you Mr. Northman." I said politely trying to calm the tension.

"Please call me Eric, I can tell that we are going to be great friends Mrs. Stackhouse." To my great surprise he actually winked at me. I didn't know what was going on, but Bill was staring at him with murder in his eyes.

"Bill lets go back to the room, I want to put my things way so you can show me around. It was nice to meet you Eric." I said hesitantly worried there might be a fight. I pulled on Bill's arm trying to get him to move, and he slowly turned to follow me. Before we got down the hall we heard Eric call out one last time.

"Tell Lorena, I said hi to by the way." He laughed loudly, and Bill was pulling me into our room away from the laughter.

"Bill who is Lorena?" I said nervously, wondering what his relationship was to this woman. There was some history between these three and I was going to find out exactly what it was.
