Come With Me Now–Eric’s Voice: “Today was a good day to die. In the moments I had left, Sookie pressed to my back, guns in her hands, guns in mine and Death hovering in the corner, remembrance tugged at me. Like a loose thread in my mind I went back to where this all started. I wanted to spend what time I had left remembering how I got my Happily Ever After, because that is what mattered. How long it lasted was always beyond our control. What mattered was that after so very long, I had reached that place with her at my side. I had reached that place with Sookie, the woman of my undead dreams.”

This story to me is about the mistakes that we make when we let our internal voices lead us to assuming the worst and the things we miss when we do. It’s also about the great things that can happen when give ourselves a chance to trust and believe those voices don’t know it all.
