Eric hesitates to ask his questions. Given his extreme reactions, he worries that he will offend his maker by asking the things he wishes to know. Eric has seen with his own eyes that Sookie and Godric have a deep, complex, intimate relationship. Eric fears on some level that he will be punished for his own relationship with Sookie. He also worries that Godric will take Sookie from him; she is after all his.
Godric sighs feeling Eric’s turmoil. He looks at his child lovingly, “My child, in this instance, please express yourself freely. Do not concern yourself with the maker/child relationship. Ask your questions; I will answer anything that I can. Our bond is open so you can feel the truth of my words.”
“Why did you never tell me?” Eric demands.
“I was not at liberty to do so,” Godric answers.
Eric raises an eyebrow at his maker. Godric smirks in return, recognizing the gesture as one of his own. “There is really no clear-cut way to explain all of this to you. There are many twists and turns in this story. It is hard even for me to keep up.”
“You promised to give me answers, and yet you speak in riddles!” Eric paces around the room in frustration.
Godric smiles softly. “It is a gift I have in common with my maker. I understand your frustration though. I too have been driven to madness with her riddles. She is the reason that Sookie came to be with me.”
