As My Bonded

By Courtney Elayne

Thriller / Romance

Chapter 1

This story takes place after "Dead and Gone". Eric promises Sookie to explain the conditions of being his boned/wife. I haven't decided if I am going to add any mature context yet. This is my first SVM story

I don't own any of these characters, or settings, just writing what I think should happen.

(I haven't been on this site in FOREVER! I have done some other short stories since then and my grammar and editing have changed since then. I have decided to revise and maybe reword/rewrite some of the chapters, as well as any errors that I missed the first time around. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing it. New comers thank you for checking out my story.)

Chapter 1

The bar was busy tonight so I didn't have enough to think about the cryptic and long overdue message Eric left for me.

"My lover, it is time for our talk. I will pick you up after work. Eric". How is it that with only a few sentences, Eric can turn my body into liquid heat?

"Sookie, can I have a chicken basket with honey mustard". Andy shouted from his table, he was sitting with his new wife Halleigh. Andy and his sister Portia Bellefleur had had a double wedding last summer and because of some medical problems I became one of the bridesmaids. The Bellfleur's haven't been on my list of favorite people, but since Bill was their however many great grandfathers, I tried to be nice.

"Right away Andy" I said with a causal smile on my face. Bill is my ex-boyfriend and first love. We had a falling out on the count of him lying to me our whole relationship. He was sent to Bon Temps by the Queen of Louisiana to seduce me. He obviously was really good at it because I fell head over heels. I walked over to the kitchen and placed the order on the serving counter.

While I waited for the food to be done I made the rounds and made sure everyone was taken care of. As soon as Andy's food was done I made my way to his table.

"Anything else I can get for y'all."

"No we're fine Sookie, thank you." he said without looking up. Andy knew I was a telepath and he wanted to use me to solve crimes. He was disappointed that I wouldn't use my freaky gift to help him out

"How about you Halleigh?" I smiled at her, and for the first time today it was genuine. Halleigh has always been nice to me; she is a teacher at a local elementary school so she is the sweetest woman you could ever know.

"No thank you I'm fine, Sookie."

The rest of the evening went by in a blur, until Eric stepped in the bar. It was like the whole bar went dim and there was only a spotlight on him. I could feel how he drank in the sight of me, it made me shiver a little. He walked over to a table in my section and sat down. In a trance I started to check him out head to toe. He looked especially gorgeous today, his golden locks pulled into a low ponytail. He wore a tailored gray suit, white button up, and a black tie. When Eric dresses up he always looks like he just stepped out of a GQ photo shoot.

As I made my way to him I can feel everyone's eyes on me, but it didn't matter, the only eyes I cared about were the sapphire blues of Eric Northman. Eric and I had our problems at the beginning. I thought he was an arrogant vampire who always got whatever he wanted and only cared for himself. He thought I was just a silly naive human who caught his attention because of my ability. I'm a telepath you see so I can hear what everyone is saying. Well just not vampires, I think it has to do with their brainwaves. Supernatural's are a little harder to read I get snippets of a feeling they have instead of a full thought.

"Hello lover" Eric said with an intense stare.

"Hi Eric, do you want me to get you anything? I get off work in 10 minutes."

"Sure, I'll have a TrueBlood A positive." His fangs begin to show

Because of our blood bond Eric and I have this really strong sexual attraction. I'm not saying sex with Eric is bad, in fact it's great. It's just being around him makes me feel like jumping his bones, and that's something I don't want to do in public. Eric smiled and licks his lips sensing where my thoughts were taking me.

"I'll be right back." I walk up to the bar to give Sam the order; Sam, my boss, friend and a shape-shifter. He's a rare pure blood shifter and can change into any animal he wants. His favorite is a Collie.

"What does Eric want?" Sam asks in a harsh tone, Sam isn't really fond of vampires, especially Eric.

"He came by to pick me up after my shift." He shakes his head in discuss, and hands me the warmed blood.

"Is there a problem Sam?" I was getting a little aggravated

"No, it just seems like you're spending a lot of time with Eric lately." Sam tone was even, showing no emotion at all.

"How is that any of your business? You know what never mind, my shifts over." I storm off towards Eric's table. Eric stands up looking concerned.

"What's wrong?"

"Nothing," I grab his hand and headed to the back of the bar to Sam's office. I could tell Eric was giving him the same glare I was. I got to Sam's office; put my apron in the cubby and took out my bag. With my hand still on Eric I walk out the back door and in the direction of the parking lot. When we finally got out side Eric turned me around and leaned me against a car. In the next second Eric's lips are on mine. Kissing Eric is always a pleasure. I guess when you're a thousand years old you have all that free time to practice. Using his tongue to part my lips, I finally give him access to what we both have been waiting for. By the time we parted, I forgot the reason why I was mad. I stroke his cheek and smiled.

"Lover, it's only been a few weeks."

"Yeah, but it seems like a life time," I say resting my head on his chest. He brushed a kiss on my head and asked. "Are you up for our chat…" he trailed off as I placed a seductive kiss on his lips.

I looked up at him with a smirk. "What do you think?" after we parted I lay my head back on his chest.

"Would you like to see my home, lover?" I have never been to Eric's house before. I looked at him as if he asked me if I wanted to go to Disney World.

"I'll take that as a yes." Eric laughed.
