A/N- I picked up right in the True Blood storyline where Sookie meets Lorena and Luke comes into Godric's nest. I was always a believer that Godric should have lived. I wanted to give Godric a second chance so the story line will change from after the bombing. Please review, I will use the reviews to help bring the story further

I had finally made it back to Godric's home or in vampire terms his nest. I was exhausted from finding Godric and almost being raped in the process. I just couldn't understand what took Bill so long to get to me. I thought Bill loved me and would have came the second he knew I was in trouble. Godric had saved me and I owed him for that.

Godric walked up to me and said, "Sookie, I wanted to thank you again for coming to find me, I am sorry about what almost happened to you and I am glad you are alright."

"Thank you Godric, I am happy that I alright too. I am just trying to figure out what took Bill so long to get to me." I said truly curious.

"Miss Stackhouse if I could have a word with you in private shortly I can fill you in with the information I have found out." Godric stated flatly.

"Okay that would be nice." I turned on my heel and started to walk away.

I was so sick of vampires, all I wanted to do was go home and curl into my nice bed and stay away from all these vampire politics. Just as I started searching for Bill, another vampire stepped in front of my path.

"Hello there. I'm Lorena."

"Nice to meet you. I'm Sookie."

"Mmm, yes. You are what all the fuss is about." She looked at me with menacing eyes.

"Excuse me?" I asked curious.

"Aren't you a morsel?" What the hell is that suppose to mean I wondered.

"I'm sorry, who are you exactly?"

"Well, we seem to have a mutual friend."

"Bill?" I asked becoming very alert to the situation.

"That's right. It is funny that he never mentioned me. I practically made him what he is today." She smirked at me.

"Lorena!" Bill yelled at her.

"Oh, hello darling," Why the hell is she calling my boyfriend darling!

"I was just getting to know your play thing. You always did like to prey on the innocent."

"Bill, is this your maker?" I had a stunned look on my face.

"She released me years ago. She no longer has any hold over me."

"Oh, I wouldn't say that." She glared at me. "We had two marvelous nights in your hotel room."

"What?" I spat at her.

"Did you know your boyfriend hit me over the head with a 52 inch plasma television tonight? Everyone says they're so thin and light, but let me tell you, when wielded properly, it's quite a weapon."

"You did? Why would you do that Bill?" I asked full of curiosity now.

Bill didn't even answer my question but glared at his Maker, "Lorena, you need to leave."

"I hope he doesn't pull the same shit with you. There's no excuse for domestic violence." She laughed.

"What she has failed to mention is that she was holding me prisoner." Bill said. I started to get really concerned and started to hate Lorena more and more as this conversation continued.

"We were just catching up. You must've been worried sick. Wondering where he was." She paused.

"I admit, it got a bit…heated. But you know how old lovers can get sometimes." She reached out to Bill and ran her finger tips down his cheek.

"Do you dare touch him again." I said heatedly, I knew the second it came out of my mouth I was talking my way into a situation I could not defend myself in.

"My. We're feisty too," she said.

"You're no more than a blood bag. You cannot win this." She said with a dead serious expression on her face.

"I've already won Lorena. Bill chose me. And yet, you still won't give up. Don't you have any shame?" I asked her seriously.

"Sookie, stop!" Bill yelled at me

"I'd listen to him," Lorena told me. "Run away, little girl." She took a step away from me but a step closer to Bill. "William and I love each other."

"You've gone mad! Get out, now." Bill yelled at her.

"Maybe you do love him, who am I to guess? But he doesn't love you. He never has, and that, we both know." I spat out. Lorena turned to me fangs out.

"Take those words back, or they shall be your last," she told me point blank.

"We're leaving!" Bill said as he got in between us and tried to usher me out of the room.

"Go find someone else you fucking bitch, you've lost this one!" I screamed at her.

Lorena grabbed Bill and threw him across the room like he was doll. She then grabbed me by my neck. She bent over looking at me with a look to kill in her eyes. Her fangs were going straight for my jugular. I closed my eyes and knew my death was coming. I couldn't figure out what happened so I peeked out of my eyes. Godric was standing next to me; Lorena's entire throat was gripped tightly by his hand. Godric whipped her back into the standing position, and pulled her a few steps back from me.

"Retract your Fangs! Now!" Lorena's fangs disappeared, but Godric did not stop there.

"I neither know, nor care, who you are. But in this area, and certainly in this nest, I am the authority." He said with ferocity so strong it nearly scared me to death. "Do you understand?"

"Yes, sheriff." Lorena said obviously now showing fear.

Godric released Lorena's throat and said, "This human has proven herself to be courageous. She is a loyal friend to our kind." He took an unnecessary breath as if to control his rage. "And yet you treat her like a child does a dragonfly, pulling off wings for sport. No wonder they hate us."

"She provoked me." Lorena said.

He leaned closer and spoke fiercely "And you provoke me. You disrupt the peace in my own home. I could snap you like a twig. But I haven't. Now, why is that?"

"It's your choice." Lorena said.

"Indeed it is. You're an old vampire, I can tell. You've had hundreds of years to better yourself, yet you haven't. You're still a savage. And I fear for all of us, humans and vampires, if this behavior persists."

"You," he said, turning and to Bill. "You seem to know her?"

"Yes, Sheriff"

"Escort her from this nest." He looked at Lorena. "I wish you out of my area before dawn." Lorena left the house escorted by Bill. That stupid bitch, I can't believe she had the nerve to put her hands on Bill like that.

Godric walked over to me. "Sookie are you alright?"

"Yes, thank you Godric."

"The only reason Bill was not asked to leave this nest is because he is your escort but if he makes a scene like this again he will be banished from this area."

"I understand Godric, it won't happen again." Godric lifted my hand and kissed it softly. That's when my mind started to be bombarded with thoughts of death, bloodshed, and hatred. I knew there were several members of the FOTS outside surrounding the house. Just then Luke walked in and I knew what was about to happen. "Everyone GET DOWN!" I screamed.

I heard the bomb explode and heard shots being fired. I felt myself go flying to the floor with a hard body on top of me. I thought to myself Jesus Christ Sheppard of Judea this can't be happening right now. As the smoke started to settle a little I felt the weight slide off of me and go to my right side. Godric was the one who saved me? Where the fuck was Bill? Godric looked in bad shape even for a vampire. As I got into a kneeling position I could see the chunks of silver throughout Godric's back.

"Godric… Godric oh God please talk to me." I said in a panic.

"Sookie, I will not heal properly with the silver in my back. Get it out please." Godric said in barely a whisper.

I tried to take control of the situation and started looking to find the easiest way of releasing the silver from Godric's back.

"Sookie suck it out." Godric told me.

I knew that I needed to take action so I began to get to work. I picked out the few pieces of silver that I could, and then began to do the dirty job I was asked to do. I put my mouth over the biggest piece of silver in Godric's back and sucked as hard as I could. The piece of silver came out easier than I expected. I spit the piece onto the floor and repeated sucking the rest of the silver out of Godric. As the pieces came out he started to heal but I could tell he would not fully heal until his daytime rest.

I saw Isabel approaching with Jason and was so thankful he was alright.

"Jason! Thank God you are okay!" I pulled him into a death grip hug.

"Sookie, I am glad you're alright!" He pulled me into his embrace while he looked me over. I guess he was assessing my damage.

I watched Godric slowly get off the floor and come to Isabel's side. He whispered something to her that I could not register. I held onto Jason's hand while I pondered why the hell Godric had saved me. Where the fuck was Bill? He was never there when I was truly in distress. This is the second time Godric has saved me when Bill decided to be absent.

I could not believe the week I was having first I was forced to come to Dallas to use my disabilities. I was glad that I found Godric but for Christ sake I was almost raped in the process, and then to top it all off I was just almost blown up. All I wanted was to go home and forget all about vampire politics. Just as I was beating myself up with all these thoughts Bill decided to make his presence known.

"Sookie! Sookie! Are you alright?" Bill asked while pulling me into his arms.

"I am fine, but where the hell were you William Compton?" I glared at him awaiting his answer.

"It took me a little longer than expected to get Lorena to leave." He answered.

"Why is it that when I need you that you are never there? Why is it that Godric was the one who shielded me instead of you?" I got a little louder with him.

"I was nowhere near you at the time Sookie, I would never not come to your aid if I had the choice." He spoke softly.

"Whatever Bill." I did what I do best and turned on my heel grabbing Jason and walked away.

"Sookie wait!" Bill called after me.

I bumped into Eric on my retreat and he asked me what was wrong. I explained to Eric how I felt Bill should have been the one to shield me and protect me not Godric. I explained to him that I was so thankful that Godric did help me but it hurt my own boyfriend couldn't do that for me. Bill started to walk by when Eric grabbed his arm.

"William." Eric said flatly.

"Yes, Eric?" Bill said.

"I hate to say this in front of Sookie and upset her but why is that you smell of Lorena and of sex?" Eric smirked.

"William Compton! Are you fucking kidding me right now?" I slapped him across his face and hurt my hand in the process. Eric grabbed me and put me behind him as Bill's fangs peeked their way through his gums.

"Sookie, I did not mean to hurt you, she commanded me. You have to listen to your Maker." Bill pleaded to me with his eyes.

"That's funny, because if I'm not mistaken I specifically heard you say to Sookie that your Maker had released you." Godric stepped in.

"Bill Compton you stay the hell away from me! We are through, do not even look at me! EVER!" I yelled.

I started to feel light headed but was thankful Godric had took my hand is his.

"Attention everyone, I would like everyone to start proceeding to the Hotel Carmilla. They have been notified of the situation and have security in place." Godric said with complete calmness.

"Isabel." Godric called. Isabel came up to us. "I would like you to take Miss Stackhouse's brother to the Hotel. I want the humans separated so there are less targets if we are being watched. Protect him with your life. I will escort Sookie personally." Godric demanded. "Miss Stackhouse, may I?" Godric extended his hand to me, and I gladly accepted.

Godric escorted me to a black Navigator and had me sit in the middle of him and unfortunately Eric. I could not handle today's events. I was physically and emotionally drained. I started thinking of Bill and how hurt I was that he betrayed me. I was so upset that the tears started falling. I put my hands on my face and doubled over so hurt that the man I love or should I say loved fucked someone else. Godric pulled me to him and whispered that it was alright. I sank into him and buried my face in the crook of his neck and kept crying.

We pulled up to the hotel and Godric ushered me in. Unfortunately I was obviously supposed to share a room with Bill, and that was the last thing I wanted to do right now.

"Is there any way that I can have my room changed?" I asked Godric still sniffling.

"Of course it is late to do that tonight but you are more than welcome to stay in my room." Godric said with a smile.

"Are you sure? I could stay with Jason if you want me to." I never realized how truly beautiful Godric was until just now.

"Jason is sharing a room with Isabel so she can guard him. It is quite alright to stay with me Sookie."

"Thank you Godric. You have saved me several times in just a few short hours." I leaned and kissed him on the cheek.

Godric ushered me to the elevator and we went up to the 10th floor, this floor was for vampires only and was light tight even in the hallways. We got to Godric's room which was room 1056 and he used the key card to let us in.

"Is there any way to get my clothes out of Bill's room?" I asked curiously.

"Why of course, I will send Eric to get your belongings and have him bring them here shortly. You are welcome to take a shower and to make yourself comfortable."He said this will all the sincerity in the world.
