So the TB finale happened and I’m still a little meh about it… on the plus side it was so open ended it’s easy to fix so while my brain is still active it will offer you what I call little bonus scenes at the end of the episode in the announcements to the chapters. This chapter from 6MTL is a little R+R for our favourite couple as they connect a little after the Alcide and Amelia fiasco.
Eric flew in with great haste cursing himself for arriving so late as he took in the tastefully decorated table from the sky as it was filled with the most important people in Sookie’s life. Finding her eyes instantly his worried hands travelled over her protruding belly without pause.
“You made it,” she smiled gratefully trying to avert the concern in his eyes. She was taking on too much in the last trimester but there was little that could dissuade the unstoppable force known as Sookie Stackhouse. It didn’t stop him from reminding her at every turn and threatening to call Dr Ludwig on her.
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world,” he returned before greeting everyone at the table. He grabbed a chair placing it strategically between himself and the man at the head of the table. “What is the sperm donor doing in my seat,” he whispered with a hint of annoyance to her ears.
“Hush now,” she returned at his lack of manners. “It took a lot of work locating someone in your direct genetic line, the least we can offer him is a home cooked meal.”
Eric grumbled a little as he warily eyed the man that resembled more of the werewolf and despicable Compton than any of his own looks. His eyes decided to travel to the life that was growing in her belly instead that despite altered genetics smelt of both of them while a contented heartbeat thundered aloud. He sighed, not in resignation but in gratitude a fitting feeling at this American feast after all. He was thankful for everyone at the table, including the one in his seat. So what if their child might resemble one of her exes in looks, the child would be theirs and anyone who would suggest otherwise would not only fear the scorn of his wrath but Sookie’s too.
Hope you enjoy the next installment!
