Sookie was marked (blood offense) by a nasty werewolf at Club Dead. Eric’s reaction:
Eric said abruplty, “Do you want me to heal the marks on your shoulder?”
“How would I explain that, Eric? The whole bar saw him grab me.”
“You’re right.” Eric shook his head, his eyes closed, as if he were angry with himself. “Of course. You’re not Were, you’re not undead. How would you have healed so quickly.”
This was another great scene that showed Eric’s true feelings for Sookie in the earlier books. Love it!
