This first chapter is just about ALL conversation. You get only the smallest tidbits from the minds of Eric and Sookie. I tried to only do conversation and that was too boring, I needed a little bit on insight – but not much!
Updated July 13 from One-shot to multi-chapter:
By popular demand (OK, popular may be an exaggeration but a few of you asked) I’m expanding this – possibly just a few chapters but enough to tell us what happened next. Blame it on too much time at camp with no Laptop and too much down time (killer on the brain with no keyboard). Hopefully I can remember all the ideas that came to me yesterday.
NOTE – there are some subtle differences in the first chapter – those I did already made and it’s been re posted. In short – Sookie’s degree is now a doctorate. I thought after I published I wanted her to have the degree to more justify the new position she was going to take.
