Once Pam was awake and showered she walked down the hall to the living area. Eric was still in his room apparently. She walked over to the fridge to grab a True Blood. She had just placed the bottle in the microwave when she noticed the note on the bar addressed to her. She opened it and realized that it was from Kat.

I want to thank you for the clothes mostly but also for the code to get out. I am still terrified of you. There is no doubt about it. You scare the shit out of me. But you asked me the other day how Eric and I met. I lied when I said I couldn't remember what had happened ten years ago. You don't forget a meeting with a man like Eric. So here goes. This is how I met Eric Northman, Sheriff of Area 5 Louisiana.

Kat was sitting on the swing in the park down the road from her house. She loved watching the night sky. Something about it calmed her. She would come to the park once a week, usually on Wednesday, and just stare at the sky. She heard someone move off to the side of her. When she looked up she saw a blond man watching her. She closed her eyes and ignored him. As long as he kept his distance she was fine.

Eric saw her. She was sitting on the swings. She had done it repeatedly over the past weeks. It seem ritualistic to her. He knew she saw him. He wanted to her to see him. She turned away from him and continued to gaze at the night sky. He inhaled and could smell her sweet scent. There was something about her that intrigued him. He would definitely have to get closer to her.

Kat could feel a slight breeze and shivered.

"It's cold out," said a voice.

Kat opened her eyes to find the blond man sitting beside her. She smiled weakly at him and stood up from the swings.

"Then I should get going," she said walking away.

Eric smiled as he moved in front of her. Kat stopped in her tracks when he appeared in front of her. Her mouth opened and closed like she was trying to speak but nothing came out. Eric smiled and reached a hand forward and moved some of her hair from her face. Kat stood as still as she could possibly manage. Which meant she was trembling terribly. Eric smiled again and placed his hands on her shoulders.

"You have nothing to worry about," he said. "I will not hurt you. What is your name?"

"K-kat," she said.

"Kat, is it short for anything?" he asked.

"K-katarina," she stuttered.

Kat was terrified. A vampire had her by the shoulders in an empty park at two o'clock in the morning. Who the hell is out at two in the morning? She had heard rumors about vampires but didn't think that they really existed.

"Katarina, you are very beautiful. But why do you lurk in the dark like a vampire?" he asked.

"I like the night. It calms me," she said. "Please don't kill me."

"I wont kill you, little one. I just want a taste," he said.

Kat froze on the spot when he turned her around. He pulled her back flush with his chest. He moved her hair from her neck and bent over. His fangs descended and her bit her neck. Kat cried out in pain when he bit her. Eric pulled back from her neck. She was delicious but there was something else about her that intrigued him. He lifted his wrist to his mouth and bit into it. He lowered it to her mouth and forced her to drink.

Kat drank the blood that flowed from his wrist. It was intoxicating. She could feel the wounds on the side of her next closing up. Eric pulled his wrist away and let the wound heal. He turned her around to look in her eyes again. There was something about seeing her with blood around her mouth that turned him on.

Eric leaned forward and captured her lips in a passionate kiss. Kat kissed him back with as much fever. Eric undid the jeans she had been wearing and pushed them down. He lifted one of her legs out of them after he had released himself form his own pants. He thrust into Kat catching all of her moans and curses in his mouth. They each found their release soon. Eric pulled from Kat. Kat grabbed at her jeans as a blush crept over her face. Once they were dressed again Eric lifted her face to his.

"You are mine, Katarina. I will always know where you are and what you are feeling. If you run across another vampire tell him you are mine and he will leave you be," said Eric.

"Who are you?" asked Kat.

"Eric Northman. Sheriff of Area 5 Louisiana," he said.

Eric kissed her one more time before he disappeared into the night. Kat collected her thoughts and walked back to her house. It wasn't three months later when she ran into a group of vampires.

"Lookie here," said one.

"She looks delicious," said another.

"You…you need to stay away from me," she said.

"And why is that?" asked the first.

"Because…" she said.

"I'm scared," said the second one.

"I'm taken," she said with a little more oomph.

"Oh really? By who?" asked the second one as he walked closer.

"Eric Northman. Sh-sheriff of…" she started.

"We know who he is," said the first one walked eve closer than the other. "I'm not scared of him."

"I am," said the second. "I heard the last time a vampire crossed him he had the guy wrapped in silver. I'm getting the hell out of here."

"You got lucky little girl," said the first one.

Kat let out a sigh. She wanted t get home and fast.

I used Eric as my get out being eaten card a lot that first year. I had honestly thought I would see him again but he never came back. I finally stopped dreaming about him about five years ago. It was difficult but I finally willed myself not to think about him. I don't know what he felt during those ten years but I know what I felt. What was once love, or the closest thing to loving a vampire, turned into resentment and then hatred.

Eric did get me into his bed last night, but I didn't try to stop him either. I really don't care if he reads this or not. It's not like he doesn't know what happened already. I might see you around Pam. I doubt it will be at Fangtasia though. Again, thanks for the clothes. I will send them back when I get home. ~Katarina

Pam folded the letter up and walked back to her room. She left the bottle of True Blood for Eric to finish off. She placed the letter in a box in her nightstand. Eric had actually claimed a human and never told her about it. It did explain a lot about the first few years he would shiver for no reason. Pam finished getting ready and headed out to Fangtasia.

Eric had been up for quite sometime. He had read the letter Kat had left Pam. He laid in his bed and breathed in her scent. It would fade in a few days. She had said that she had loved him. Did she still love him? Is that why she had slept with him? Eric groaned and climbed out of the bed. He had to go to Fangtasia tonight. He wasn't happy about it but he hand to go.

Kat sat at the dinner table talking to Hoyt and Jessica. She had told them she didn't want to walk about Eric or anything that had happened over the past few days. Jessica kissed Hoyt and left for work. Hoyt looked at Kat. Kat had a distant look on her face. It was like her body was there but her mind wasn't.

"You okay?" asked Hoyt.

"Yeah," said Kat.

There was a knock at the door and Jason and Sookie walked in. As soon as Sookie saw Kat she hugged her.

"Okay. I'm not big on hugging," said Kat.

"I'm sorry. I'm just happy your okay. And alive," said Sookie

"Eric wasn't going to kill me," said Kat.

"That's obvious now. But I know Eric. If he had the chance I'm sure he would've killed you. He doesn't care about people," said Sookie.

"I was locked in his house these past few days. He had numerous chanced to kill me and he didn't," said Kat. "You know the 'work' Eric. I know the 'play' Eric. They are two completely different people. And I don't appreciate that you would say something like that about him."

Before Sookie could say anything Kat grabbed Hoyt's keys and walked out of the house. She jumped in the truck and drove down the road. She might regret the but she had to go somewhere to get away.

Eric was sitting on the throne ignoring the people who where fawning over him. Pam was working the door that night. He didn't hear what Pam had said to one of the patrons. He didn't even see her walk across the floor.

Kat walked up to the front entrance of the bar. Pam was at the front door checking Ids. Kat walked up to Pam.

"I though you said you weren't coming back here," chuckled Pam.

"Yeah, well I got unfinished business here," said Kat walking past her.

Kat walked through the crowded room and towards the stage. Eric was ignoring the people at his feet. She could see why. They were pathetic. She pushed past them and climbed up on the stage.

Eric's gaze fell on the person who had climbed on the stage. She had a look of determination on her face. Before he had a chance to say anything she kissed him. Eric stood and grabbed her, lifting her off the stage. Kat wrapped her legs around him as she kissed him. When she pulled back he let go of her. One of the girls around the stage grabbed at her foot trying to pull her down. The girl managed to pull Kat to the main floor.

"You can't do that to him!" shouted the girl.

"I can do what the fuck I want to and you can't do shit about it!" shouted Kat. "I am his and he is mine. Bitch!"

Kat smacked the girl. Eric growled but it wasn't out of anger. It was out of lust. Pam grabbed the fang banger and tossed her from the club. Eric grabbed Kat and dragged her back into his office. Eric attacked her lips when the door closed behind them.

Eric had his shirt unbuttoned and hers off when she stopped him.

"Answer me one thing," she said.

"What?" said Eric looking at her.

"What does 'Så vackert. Alla gruva' mean?" asked Kat.

"Why?" asked Eric kissing her neck.

"You said it to me in two of my dreams," said Kat.

"It means 'so beautiful' and 'all mine.' And you are definitely alla gruva," said Eric kissing her.

Så vackert = So Beautiful
Alla gruva = All mine.
