Bill said, ‘She is mine.’
I wondered if my hands would move. They would. I raised both of them, making an unmistakable one-fingered gesture.
Eric laughed, and Bill said, ‘Sookie!’ in shocked admonishment.

I love book Sookie!!
Eric is much better looking than I am,” Bill said. “He is more powerful, and I understand sex with him is unforgettable. He is so old he only needs to take a sip to maintain his strength. He almost never kills anymore. So, as vampires go, he’s a good guy. You could still go with him. He is still looking at you. He would try his glamor on you if you were not with me.
We were all silent for a moment. The idea that Sophie-Anne might be finally dead was almost unimaginable.
Bill shook himself visibly. “So, we might stay here, or we might find another place for you three. When I’m sure you’re safe, I have to get to Eric as soon as I can. He’ll need every pair of hands tonight if he’s to survive.”
Some of the other sheriffs were surely dead. Eric might die tonight. The full realization smacked me in the face with the force of a huge gloved hand. I sucked in a jagged breath and fought to stay on my feet. I just couldn’t think about that.

We might never hear the words onscreen, but Sookie can’t imagine a world without Eric either.
