As Bill runs across the cemetery back to his home, he thinks of ways he can gain Sookie's trust again. He needs a plan…a plan to get rid of Eric and re-claim Sookie again.
Eric Northman will pay! For now, he'll let the Sheriff have his fun with Sookie…when the time comes Sookie will be his again and he'll rid the thorn in his side that is the Viking. He hates Eric. He hates how he's captured Sookie's heart! He will make him pay! But how is he going to do it? He felt sad that he lost Sookie's trust. Bill will do anything to gain her trust back.
After all they've been through…he wasn't giving up so easily. He knew deep down somewhere she still loved him. He needs to find a way get his blood inside her again. It's been a year, so his blood would be completely gone from her body by now.
Bill decided he needs to call in three witches he knew long ago…Marnie, Hallow and Antonia. He barges through his front door going straight to his office. He goes to sit behind his desk and picks up the phone and dials the number of the Moon Goddess Emporium. As the phone rings he drums his fingers against the desk lightly, impatiently waiting for someone to pick up the phone.
And suddenly three women appear in Bill's office. He smiles to himself; he loves it when people get straight down to business. All three ladies bowed to Bill. "You're Majesty." The three witches say in unison.
"Ladies, welcome. It's been so long." Bill says as he walks from around his desk, taking Hallow's hand and kissing the back of it.
"Bill…always a pleasure to see you. To what do I owe the honor of your call?" She asked in a sultry voice.
"Please, have a seat, ladies. I called to ask for your assistance with a problem I have." Bill said as he sat behind his desk. Hallow sat down in the chair in front of his desk, while Antonia and Marnie remained standing behind her.
Hallow was the oldest, therefore the leader of three witches. Marnie was her second in command, while Antonia was the follower. She's never said much, but only nods or shakes her head when they acknowledge her.
"And what is this problem you need assisting with?" She asked, while crossing her legs, knotting her fingers together in her lap.
"Eric Northman, sheriff of Area 5. He has something that I want. He's in the way and I want him gone." He said with cold eyes.
Hallow stiffened in her seat, schooling her facial expressions. She recently sent Marnie to the Viking for a meeting to make a deal with the sheriff. Unfortunately, she failed and dare came back empty handed; Hallow was enraged and nearly killed Marnie for her incompetence.
The three witches sat down and tried to come up with a way to entrap the vampire sheriff having yet to find anything. Eric Northman is seemingly invulnerable. Now the fates are working in their favor. The King of Louisiana is asking for their help. Maybe she could use this to her advantage. She needed the vampire blood for the power to do magic.
This will be good.
"What does the Northman have that you want?" She asked, narrowing her eyes. Bill frowned.
"That's none of your concern! Just do what I'm paying you to do." Hallow gritted her teeth, glaring at him. She did not appreciate being spoken to like she was one of his fangbangers or underlings.
"What's your price?" Hallow asked, barely containing her anger.
"One million dollars, each… Half now, the other half when you have finished the task." He stood from his desk, getting out his check book. As he was writing the check, Hallow looked back at her two sisters and smiled at them.
They both nodded back at her. She looked back at Bill grabbing the check from him. She looked down at the check and smiled back to him.
"What did you have in mind?" she asked the King.
"I don't care how you do it. Do whatever is necessary to take down the Viking…by any means necessary." He emphasized.
He's going through all this trouble for something the Viking has…must be valuable. Maybe I can use it, if things don't go as planned.
The king was willing to do anything to have what the Viking had. This intrigued Hallow. What was so valuable to the king that he is willing to get rid of his sheriff?
"You're going through all this trouble just to get something the Viking has…it must be something valuable…" She trailed off.
"As I said before, that's none of your concern…Now do what you're paid to do and leave." Bill interrupted, gritting his teeth.
"As you wish, your Majesty." she said, then all three ladies disappeared from the room.
An unknown vampiress lands in front of the Stackhouse property; having just arrived from New Orleans for reconnaissance from her superior. She stood still in the middle of the yard and sniffed around. She smelled Bill Compton's, Eric Northman's and Sookie Stackhouse's scent.
The girl is back, excellent. I will make my presence known…later. Right now, sit back and watch as everything falls into place…then make my move.
She could hear the conversation going on between Eric and Sookie and smiled to herself.
So, the Viking finally confessed his feelings to girl, goody. This will make my mission easier. Surely, he'll understand why I was sent here.
She climbed up into a tree and watched through a window, watching them talking. She may not know Sookie but being a psychic and looking at Sookie's past decisions regarding the vampires…well, she's irritating is all she can say about the girl.
"I ask, Miss Stackhouse, will you be mine?" she heard Eric ask, as she jumped out of the tree. She didn't stay long enough to hear the girl's answer. She stopped in her tracks, getting a strong urge to crossover onto Compton's property.
She ran off towards Bill's mansion at vampire speed. Suddenly, she stopped and smelled three, very familiar scents.
Bill is a fucking coward…he can never do things himself. That wouldn't do any good anyway, because he fucks it up in the end. Being as old as she is, she could squash Compton like a bug…with her hands tied behind her back. She hated Bill Compton!
Things have begun…
