Eric and Bill quarrel and get kicked out of Sookies house

End of bk 3

"Oh, by the way, Bill, the queen called Fangtasia this evening to find out why you are late with her little job. She had been unable to reach you at your home for several nights, she said." Bill resumed brushing my hair. "

I will call her back later," he said. "From my place. She'll be glad to hear that I've completed it." "You nearly lost everything," Eric said, his sudden outburst startling everyone in
the room. Pam slipped out the front door after she'd looked from Eric to Bill.

That kind of scared me. "Yes, I'm well aware of that," Bill said. His voice, always cool and sweet, was absolutely frigid. Eric, on the other hand, tended toward the fiery. "You were a fool to take up with that she-demon again," Eric said. "Hey, guys, I'm sitting right here," I said. They both glared at me.

They seemed determined to finish this quarrel, and I figured I would leave them to go at it. Once they were outside. I hadn't thanked Eric for the driveway yet, and I wanted to, but tonight was maybe not the time. "Okay," I said. "I'd hoped to avoid this, but... Bill, I rescind your invitation into my house." Bill began walking backward to the door, a helpless look on his face, and my brush still in his hand.

Eric grinned at him triumphantly.
