WPOV: "Listen to me, you whiny little bitch!"
After the witches left, Bill smiled to himself.
Everything's going according to plan.
He had to be careful though. He could be sent to his final death if anyone knew he planned to kill Eric Northman. So he hired the witches to do the job for him. Once the witches did their job he was going to eliminate them and make himself a hero.
Think of all the endorsements he could get from the Authority. However, with Eric Northman in the way, he had no way to get Sookie alone. So Bill had to be careful. If Sookie knew what he had planned, she'd never forgive him. He had to gain her trust back…and he figured a way how.
As soon as the first phase of his plan is complete, he was going to go to Sookie and convince her that he couldn't save Eric. She'll be so upset that he'll go crying to him looking for a comforting shoulder to lean on. Now he has to make sure she doesn't get involved at all. Knowing Sookie that was no easy task. He still had traces of his blood left in her body and that was enough to influence her. He chuckled to himself.
Sookie will be his once again and he couldn't wait. Bill wasn't at all happy she could trust Eric more than she could trust him. That will soon change. She will learn to love and respect Bill, and realize that she belongs with him. Sookie will be so deep in love with Bill she won't even remember who Eric Northman is.
Bill thought about her sweet scent, sweet blood and sexy southern accent. He got hard thinking about her curvy, soft naked body writhing beneath him and moaning his name. He smiled broadly and chuckled.
Suddenly, someone burst through the front door. He looked around, his sight landing on the female vampire, whom was leaning against the door-jamb casually as if she'd been there the whole time. He looked at her and frowned. He knew her, hell everyone knew her. She was infamous in their world and the supernatural world in general. A very ancient and powerful vampire; Gracie Vitello. She was a psychic who could see into the future and into the past. This could only mean one thing.
She knew of his plans.
He almost panicked, but quickly composed his features. She gave him a smirk, knowing he was feeling nervous in her presence. They all feel nervous around her. It was funny as hell.
"Bill Compton…the infamous civil war veteran!" Gracie sneered, mocking him. Bill narrowed his eyes and his frown deepening.
"I am the king of this state, and you will address me with respect. I will not tolerate this insolence!" Bill said, angrily, gritting his teeth.
Gracie gave a mocking smile. She could tell Bill knew why she was here. She felt gleeful. "Well, I could give a shit about you being king, but I don't. Boo friggin hoo for you. I pledge fealty to no one. No vampire is above me! Anyways, I'm here to let you know I'll be in your state for quite a while." Gracie said nonchalantly, walking around his office looking at everything on the walls.
"And for what reason is that?" Bill asked. He did not like this at all. He needed to find out why she was really here.
"Well, it's personal and nothing you should concern yourself with." Gracie said. She decided to go ahead and play with him further. It was so easy pissing this miscreant off and quite humorous.
"I am the king of Louisiana and you will respect me! Now answer me!" Bill said, raising his voice. She smiled, laughing at him. Cackling, actually.
Ooh, someone's got a stick up his ass.
"Oh, please Billy boy, what makes you think your position warrants any respect? You're so damn clueless, it's pathetic, laughable even! Ha! King of Louisiana! What idiot made you think you had any actual power? They must have been high as a kite when they hired you!" She snickers to herself.
"You're so damn oblivious as to why that bitch Nan Flanigan really made you king. Don't you get it? You could be the king of the universe and still have no power! You're nothing but a puppet to her. I pity you Billy boy!" Gracie said.
Bill quickly pulled a stake out his desk drawer, lunged across the room at vampire speed and pounced at Gracie pointing the stake at her heart. Of course, she was quicker and simply stepped out of the way. She grabbed Bill's arm and twisted it behind his back. She pushed him so hard against the wall she heard a few of his ribs crack, the sound satisfying her.
Bill whimpered. She pushed harder against his arm, effectively breaking his spine and dislocated his arm, the stake fell from his hand. She laughed so hard she nearly busted a gut (even if it were even possible).
"Seriously? You know damn well I'm older than you and yet you still attempt to stake me. Did you seriously think that was gonna work? Ha! You are really pathetic, dude. You're gonna have to try better than that! But then again you can't, you've always had some kind of backup, so of course you can't fight worth shit." Gracie said.
"You think the authority will stand for this? Once they know your back in the United States, they will hunt you down and kill you! I would hate to call them and let them know that." Bill said coolly.
He really thinks he can threaten me with the Authority? Gracie rolled her eyes and sighed.
"Oh, come on! Seriously? This is your pitch? Threatening me with the Authority? Those pussies? Go ahead…won't make much of a difference to me anyway. No one has ever been able to kill me. Any vampire will tell you that! Billy boy…you're still only a baby vamp…so you wouldn't know much about me, let alone how to end me. Go ahead and call Nan, and tell her to bring her super doper gay troopers! Because I will be ready for em'." Gracie hissed, throwing Bill over his desk running out the door at vampire speed.
Moments later, Bill healed and got off the ground. He picked up the phone and called Nan.
"Nan." She said in her usual cold voice.
"This is Bill Compton." Bill said.
"Your majesty, to what do I owe the pleasure?" Nan asked.
"I have some news about a certain vampire that's been on the loose for some time now…A rogue vampire." Bill paused. "Gracie Vitello. She's been spotted in Area 5 and she just left my property requesting she could stay here for a while." Bill said calmly. There was silence on the phone.
"This is news. The Authority has been tracking her for centuries and she's somehow managed to stay under the radar. Get Eric Northman to take care of this!" She said. Bill stiffened.
Shit, how am I suppose take this vampire down? And why does Eric have to do this? What is so special about her?
"Eric Northman has been missing since last night, and I do not have his whereabouts." Bill lied.
"Find Eric Northman and tell him to call me! Have you tracked Ms. Vitello's exact location yet?" she asked.
"No I have not, but I will. Why is it so important to take this vampire down? And why specifically call Eric Northman?" Bill asked.
"That is not your concern Compton! You just do as I tell you to. And you would be wise not to question me again. I will be expecting progress soon." Nan said, hanging up without another word.
Now he has to a find a way to track down Gracie Vitello and end her. She's a threat to his Sookie and could definitely get in the way of everything he has planned. If he takes her down himself, he'll move up the political ladder and get the respect he deserves.
But how do I get rid of her and Eric Northman?
