Enjoy and Review!
I do not own SVM or TB.
Jade Valentine is the sheriff of Area 5 in Shreveport, Louisiana. She had been the sheriff for over a hundred years having the most organized area. Not a single vampire in her Area had ever dared to cross her. She had strict rules all vampires are expected to follow.
If a vampire had broken protocol, they’d be severely punished. Jade makes the rules, and Eric Northman enforces them; making sure all vampires obey Jade’s authority. Eric is her second in command. They both had an arrangement, Eric allowed her to conduct sheriff business in his bar as long as Eric could handle punishing the vampires.
He takes great pleasure using his torture chamber in the basement to punish vampires, Jade thought, chuckling.
She was sitting in her office at Fangtasia doing paper work when she heard a knock at the door.
“Enter.” Jade said continuing her paperwork. She glances up as her progeny, Carrie Phoenix walks in.
“I have some news for you.” She said with a hint of excitement in her voice. Jade looked up from her paperwork and looked at Carrie expectantly.
“Bad or Good?” she asked, smiling.
“Both.” She said, sitting down in front of Jade’s desk. Jade sighed.
“Your spy in New Orleans has found out some very interesting information from one of the queen’s pets.” Carrie grinned. Jade quirked an eyebrow in curiosity and waved her hand impatiently, motioning for Carrie to continue.
“The queen sent a vampire by the name of Bill Compton to your area to procure a girl. A telepath named Sookie Stackhouse, who resides in Bon Temps.” She said. Jade frowned.
“So let me get this straight, Sophie Ann decided to overstep my authority and not inform me she’s procuring a telepathic human in my area.” Jade said coolly. Carrie nodded her head. Jade stood from her chair and walked out her office with Carrie following behind her. They walked into the bar area, and Jade saw that Eric was sitting on his throne.
She crooked her finger at him and he appeared in front of her instantly. “Sheriff.” Eric said, bowing his head.
“Eric, I need you to come with me to Bon Temps tonight.” She asked.
“What are you planning to do?” Carrie said to Jade.
“What do you think? I’m going to go to Bon Temps to find the girl and hire her as a telepath for Area 5 of course. You really think I’m going to let the Sophie Ann get away with this? She’ll order Compton to use any means to procure her, so I’m stepping in and intervening.” Jade said. Eric looked at Jade in confusion.
“What’s going on?” Eric asked.
“I’ll explain on the way.” She turned to her child. “You and Pam watch the bar while we’re ‘ll be back sometime before sunset. Let’s go, Eric.” She said walking away.
Eric followed behind her. Jade and Eric got into her Black Shelby Mustang GT 500. On they’re way to Bon Temps, Jade explained to Eric how the queen sent Bill Compton to procure a telepath named Sookie Stackhouse and how she was going to get to her before Compton did.
Should be an interesting night, Eric thought.
“She sent Compton?” He looked incredulous. “Why would she send someone as incompetent as Compton to procure a girl? She should have sent someone more qualified for the job.” Eric said with disgust. Jade chuckled.
“Incompetent indeed, I’m fully expecting her to throw one of her famous bitch-fits. Once she discovers what I’ve done, she’ll try everything she can to take it back and punish me. Sophie-Ann is a crazy bitch who thinks because she’s queen she has sway over me. Ha! I’m over four thousand years old with enough political sway to make her disappear. Let that bitch try and fuck with me!” Jade laughed.
“You know that’s treason, right? And it’s punishable by the true death!” Eric said coolly. Jade snorted.
“Pfft, whatever man. Nobody has been able to kill me since my transformation over 1500 years ago. What makes you think the Magister or even the Authority can pull it off?” Jade said.
“I’m just warning you…be careful. You’re no good to anybody if you’re dead.” Eric said.
“I will, old friend. I certainly didn’t live four thousand years being careless, reckless and cocky.”Jade said pulling the car into the parking lot of Merlotte’s. They got out the car and walked through the doors.
Eric and Jade both stood in front of the bar looking around and scanning the place. Eric looked stoic as usual and Jade smiled. She finally decided to sit down in a booth and Eric sat across from her.
As they waited for a waitress to serve them, she looked around for Sookie Stackhouse. When Jade heard about this she had to step in, interfere and hire the girl for herself. No one does anything in Jade’s area without her knowing about it. She had eyes and ears everywhere.
Jade was also pissed that the queen decided to side step her authority and kidnap a human without her permission. The queen thought she was getting lucky. Well, her luck just ran out. Now that Jade beat Sophie-Ann to punch, she was gonna have to go through the sheriff of area 5 to use the telepath’s services. Jade felt gleeful.
Come to think of it, how did the queen know about the telepath and she didn’t? How did a telepath stay under the radar for so long? What’s so special about this gal? Jade planned to find out soon.
She turned her attention to Eric who had his eyes glued to something. Jade could tell by the lustful look in his eyes, it was a woman. Jade turned her attention in the direction of Eric’s eyes and smiled broadly.
Could you be any more obvious Eric? Jade thought with a knowing smile on her face.
A blonde girl with a bright smile on her face approached their table, with a pen and pad in her hand.
“Hello, I’m Sookie, you’re server. What can I getcha?” She said with excitement in her voice.
