I’d Turn the Machines Off: Chapter One

Chapter One

Jason left her about six months after his 21st birthday. Well, he didn’t leave exactly; he was still there ─ so to speak.

Sookie walked into the private hospital room he was in and started unloading her bag. Chap stick, hairbrush, and Paul Mitchell shampoo, some of his cologne, music and a book. She yanked the blinds open and the sunlight streamed in, highlighting his incredibly pale skin.

“Hey, brother.” Sookie said, forcing a smile into her voice. She stroked his hair and held onto his hand, leaning down so he could see her face if he chose to open his eyes. He had done that quite a bit over the past few months.

Hands of Fire

Eric could still smell Nora on his skin, their coupling had been urgent and passionate. He paced like a caged animal inside the silver walled cell. His muscles flexed as he fought to hold the rage inside of him. He could hear the screams of his sister echoing down the dimly lit corridor.

He gripped the silver bars, hissing as his skin began to burn. “Release her!” He commanded. “You have a debt to settle with me, not her! Let her go and deal with me, you cowards! She has nothing to do with this!”

TB 5.1


Well, the season started off with a bang! I am not quite sure how I feel about it yet. I like the episode just fine, but it was weird seeing Eric hook up with Nora no more than a night or two after he had declared his love for Sookie. As Ali pointed out, the EW interview with Eric did state according to Alex, something along the lines of that he had all ready learned his lessen, he opened up, he got burned- he wasn’t about to do it again.

Alex was perfect, as always, but this was not the Eric I had grown to know and love. It was almost like I was watching Alex have a one night stand! MissyD suggested it’s because the two Eric’s have now merged, vulnerable Eric and BAMF Eric. This is probably also true. I would love to pick Thyra’s brain about it but since she boycott’s the show, I wouldn’t get very far. 😉
