guys this is my favorite video
"You can try, but I’m really sure I wouldn’t…According to Pam I’m a Cheeto, so I bet I taste like them too" she giggled.
"Why the hell would you taste like a Cheeto?
That would almost be miraculous…”
Godric sat patiently on the couch besides Eric. He could tell that his childe was on edge with the anticipation of Jo’s announcement. Although Godric had no idea what she was about to say, he sat as calmly as if he did.
"We’re listening," he assured her.
That they were both so calm and willing to listen helped to ease Jo’s nerves a bit, but she was still worried about how the vampires might react when she gave them the news. “I…I’m sorry about not letting you both know this earlier, but um, my brother Jimmy is home on leave and he’s coming to visit. Tonight. In about half an hour.” Jo held her breath and waited to see how the ancients on her couch would react.
Nothing was coming to Eric’s memory about Jo’s brother. That probably made him a bad boyfriend… or whatever he was.
"Well, it is your apartment, Jo. You don’t need our permission to have guests."
I don’t really know how good I would taste Eric”
"—-Oh I am sure you would taste just fine, baby vamp.”
Jo bit her lip and smiled shyly. “Of course you have my permission Eric.” Her hands brushed up to gently pull his hands off his buttons. “But you have to help the queen with her clothes before you do yours.” The dim candle light did nothing to really hide the blush that stained Jo’s cheeks.
Eric nodded. “Of course— how silly of me,” before he relocated his hands to Jo’s own shirt. He pulled the material over her head quickly and easily before dropping it to the floor. The rest of her clothes followed in an instantaneous blur.
"Oi. Watch it," she replied with mock seriousness, gently nudging him with her elbow. "I’m an English teacher. I need that power." Clara winked at Eric and started laughing. It would definitely come in use. She also reckoned her students would desperately want that power, so that they didn’t have to prolong the pain of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, not would others have to meticulously make their way through Art Spiegelman’s Maus.
Clara shrugged, the smile slipping from her face. “I suppose so. But then again, couldn’t you choose to block it?” It wasn’t really that nosy of her to want to know what other people were thinking — she could hold a fair amount of empathy, and sometimes people were just too hard to read or too secretive, particularly when they were upset.
"Are you sure? Because with super strength you can literally push away people if you want to be alone, super speed means you can get away quicker if you want to be alone and being practically indestructible ensures that nobody can get you while you’re alone,” Clara told him with optimism. She knew there was a difference between wanting to be alone and the feeling of loneliness, but she couldn’t help but feel that Eric was a lonely man anyway. The way he talked so casually about wanting to disappear worried her, to an extent. He’d been hidden away for far too long, before vampires were known to the world, why would he want to hide himself away again now? “On the subject of your incredible vampire abilities, is there anything else you can do?”
"I suppose it would depend on how much control you have over the power. From my own understanding, telepathy has a mind of its own
—-no bad joke intended.”
No. Hearing others’ thoughts was not at all something that Eric could find any interest in participating in himself. As curious a capability it was, it was too empathetic.
Eric lifted a brow at Clara. “So you’re saying the main objectives to having those powers would be to isolate one’s self?” Which ultimately proved to be an advantage as a survival technique to a dangerous breed, but not necessarily when trying to integrate itself into the mainstream. The vampire almost snorted in spite of himself.
"You seem to be preoccupied with thoughts of being alone—- trying to tell me something?" A slight grin formed on his mouth. It had only been a jest, but a nagging worry tugged at Eric’s heart string, hoping that Clara really didn’t want him to leave her alone.
"All vampires are gifted with super strength, super speed, and immortality at birth. Those powers only strengthen with age. Some vampires can fly—- although histories have proven that there must be some sort of genetic link in the blood from maker to progeny."
"Well it was yours to begin with so there might have been some hope.” Sookie admitted to him, though that was all she might say on the matter. They had been broken up but still…they had made memories in her refurbished house. “Just Tara when she was first turned.”
"Glad to hear. You know how possessive I can be.”
Whether or not she was telling the truth, it appeared at least to Eric that Sookie wanted to protect his ego.
"It was not cheap to build, so I hope other visitors know how to enjoy it…”
