What Happens in Vegas Might Move to Shreveport
Disclaimer: Still playing with Eric and Sookie, they are the property of Ms. Harris and not for my grubby paws.
Hi there, I guess that no one likes an emotional vamp, sorry about that. I was just trying something and it seems to have back fired. This story should be more to your liking, he is back to his old cocksure self. No more neutered Eric I promise. Obsidian
"She said what?"
"Well Mr. Northman, she refused to let us in the house to get the estimate and told us the pass on the message that she doesn't need a new floor and that you were to go suck an egg if you thought differently." replied the contractor that Eric had hired to replace the floors in Sookie's house in Bon Temps. He sincerely wishws that it was not him that had to pass on her message.
"Did you tell her that I, her husband, sent you?"
"Yes and she seemed especially irritated by that fact."
He sighed wearily "okay, thank you, I will deal with it." he rubbed his head and realized that if he was human he would probably have splitting headache. Why did they ever change the human wedding vow from, love honour and obey? He thought.
"Pam, I am leaving for a few hours"
"What has Sookie done this time?" she said with a note of glee.
"Refused to let the contractor in that I hired to replace her floors"
Pam just cracked up, "oh Master, sometime I think that the two of you exist just to keep me entertained."
It had been 3 months since they got drunk and got married in Nevada, Sookie still lives in Bon Temps and works in Merlottes, but they spend a lot of time together commuting from one place to the other.
When they told the vampires at Eric's bar about their marriage, Sookie was surprised when they simply said. "It is about time; he was becoming unbearable"
As for when they told Sam. He brought both into his office and bawled them both out for being so irresponsible in proper Sam style. After he calmed down he offered to throw them an engagement party. "But we are already married" they pointed out. "Like a Vegas wedding really counts" he said with disgust. When they were allowed to finally leave Eric whispered to Sookie "what a hard ass he is, he would make a great vampire."
She was not surprised to see Eric glowering on her porch with windswept hair. "Hi Honey, nice night for flying?"
"Don't hi Honey me, why wouldn't you let the contractor in that I hired" his accent was very pronounced as it normally was when he was irate.
"Well, Darling, I agreed that you could make some changes to my house that was necessary. I didn't mind when you updated the washroom, I didn't mind when you replaced the windows that you claimed were drafty, I didn't even mind when you added a deck for my sunbathing. But however, there is nothing wrong with my floors!"
"Look, can I come in so that we can discuss this like adults?"
"I prefer you on that side of the door thank you, buddy."
"Don't call me buddy and of course I can come in; I am your husband" he yelled back.
"Just go ahead and try, you still have to be invited to enter here and I am not inviting you!" she screamed back.
Amelia walked in onto the porch "Hi Eric" noticing him hovering in the doorway. "Would you like to come in?" He shot Sookie a look of triumph and stepped over the threshold.
"Sookie, that floor of yours is a health hazard and you know it"
"Save the Drama for your Momma. What is so wrong with it may I ask?"
"Well for starters, there are holes in the ceiling on your second floor and the finish is practically gone in your living room."
"First of all, I don't even go into those rooms where the holes are and secondly the finish is fine."
"Oh yeah? Shall I show you the splinters that came out of my back last night then? I personally don't think that your knees are in any better shape either today" he retorted.
Sookie looked at Amelia and blushed.
"You know that he is right about the living room, you complain about it all the time. Funny way for him to find out though" laughed Amelia.
Sookie looked one from to the other and said "I am leaving; you two can stay here and discuss the state of my floors without me."
"No" he said, "we both agreed that neither one of us is allowed to run out when we have something to discuss."
She paused; she did tend to like to leaving during arguments and had promised him that she wouldn't anymore. Damn him.
"Look" he said in a calmer voice "if you don't want a new floor then you don't have to, but you do honestly need to fix it."
"I know and it is a very sweet gesture, but you have to start consulting me before you make decisions about my property."
He put his hands on her shoulders and said in a softer voice "I know that I can be rather overbearing sometimes (ignoring Amelia's snort) but your health and well being are important to me and until you agree to live with me full time at least let me make things a little better for you here."
She stepped into his embrace "I know and I love you for it; I am sorry that I told you to suck an egg. I do admit that the floor is pretty nasty, but I guess that I don't like being told that it is."
"So, then if I send the contractor back tomorrow you will let him in?"
"I promise I will"
He kissed her forehead "good, then while I am here can I take you to dinner?"
"Of course, I'll go grab my coat."
Amelia looked from one to the other; they were compromising like a real couple and not just screaming at each other like they used to. Darn. Like Pam, Amelia found their arguments to be very entertaining.
'Why am I still here?' she wondered. 'If Gran were still alive she would tell me to go live with my husband'
The sad part was the she loved being at Eric's place and it was harder and harder to leave each time she had to go home. She missed him when she didn't see him and didn't sleep properly without his large pale body beside her own. She loved being with her and they got along famously. The only bone of contention between the two of them was her inability to commit.
Even Sam had asked when she was planning to move to Shreveport.
They had even discussed what to do with her house and he had offered to restore it and rent it out or turn it over to Jason for future generations of Stackhouses.
But, her life was here, so were her friends and she had simply never lived anywhere else.
Not to mention, she couldn't ask Eric to give up his lavish residence and move in with her as he had offered. It wouldn't be right.
"What should I do?" she asked Batty, the cat that he had gotten her. "Should we move in with him or should we just stay put? What do you think precious sweetheart?"
"I think you should move in with your gorgeous vampire" said a voice right beside her. She jumped.
"Baby, I am going to make you start wearing a bell if you keep surprising me like that." She said getting up on tip toe to kiss him. "What are you doing here? I thought that we were getting together tomorrow night."
"I missed you" he said simply.
"Hi Bobby, I need you to get me a gift for my three month wedding anniversary. Diamond earrings, a good quality but not too flashy."
"Of course, the usual arrangements I imagine."
"Yes, put them in a cheap box and get the guy at Wal Mart to put a sticker on them for $19.97 or something like that."
Pam walked in "get the floor thing straightened out, Master."
"Yes, she agreed with me in the end. After I was informed to suck an egg"
Pam cracked up "I swear I think I should get me a husband, they seem more entertaining then a barrel of monkeys"
"No not really" replied Eric.
"Could you ask Sookie if her gorgeous brother is available?"
"Pam I forbid you to have anything to do with Jason Stackhouse. I wouldn't even wish him on a human woman."
"Oh well, I suppose that I can always look up the Werewolf I met in Vegas; he was a howling good time."
Phone rings and she picks it up.
"Sookie its Pam."
"Oh, hi Pam how are you this evening?"
"Sookie, this has to stop, would you just get your ass over to Shreveport and move him with him already?"
"I don't you think that is your business?"
"No, it isn't just about just you and him if is affects me too."
"Don't know why I am afraid to move, I guess it is because my house and job are here."
"And your husband is here bugging us all because you won't live with him. It was bad enough when he was all stupid over you before. It is bad for business."
"I can't imagine that his wedding ring is very good for business either" retorted Sookie.
"Are you kidding, the fang-bangers love it, they seem to try even harder. I guess the appeal of trying to lure married vamp is appealing. We are making a killing!"
Sookie looked sourly at the phone "he never told me that part."
"Look I will let him know by the end of the week, okay."
"Good, he is being annoying"
Sookie was filling up the napkin dispensers when a bunch of men came in the bar.
"Which one of you sluts is Sookie Northman?"
Sam tried to jump them from behind but was knocked unconscious.
"The blond there" pointed Arlene.
"Mrs. Northman all women like you should be destroyed."
"What did I do?"
"You married a vampire, prepare to die" and the front man shot her
Just as she realized that she might never see her husband again and how much she was going to miss him. The bullet was stopped and went in the body of a very large blond Viking. He dropped like a brick, but that was enough time for all the other men in the bar to wrestle them down.
"Honey, are you okay" examining his chest where the bullet was slowly and painfully exiting the wound.
"I have been better, I really hate getting shot you know, it stings like a bitch."
Sam handed him a true blood, "drink this vampire. Sookie, take him to my office."
Sookie helped him there.
"Eric, how did you happen to be here?"
"I was a little early so I was talking to Sam in his office when they came in."
"What you and Sam are friends now?"
"No, but we both want what is best for you."
"Let me guess, my moving in with you is the best for me"
"Yes, that is why we are opening a bar together in Shreveport catering to Supes and you are being transferred to work."
"What you two are not!" she wasn't really mad.
"Yes, we are, your new contract of employment" he said holding it out to her. "You are going to be manager."
"I guess that means I shall have to move to Shreveport then?"
"Guess so, you have a place to crash?"
"Yeah, got space for me and a cat?"
"So you don't mind that I did this, I am surprised. I was expecting you to rage at me."
"Nope, when I almost got shot I realized that the person I would miss in the entire world is you and I was sad that we didn't get to spend more time together."
"So you will actually live with me then?"
"Yes, you and your ego both provided there is enough room for all of us.
