Grabbing the moisturizer, Sookie begins rubbing lotion into her skin. She notices that her skin feels softer and that she does not have any cuts or bruises on her. Her tan even looks like it has taken on a darker sheen. As she puts moisturizer on her face, she finds that her complexion is clear and smooth. She pulls the towel off her hair; it is longer than it was yesterday. Using the blow dryer, she takes the time to straighten her hair. Once her hair is dry, she notices that her hair is both lighter and fuller.
She grins at her reflection. Vampires could make a killing opening up spas that would use their blood to rejuvenate people’s appearance. Hollywood would probably be the biggest client. She would have to remember to suggest that to Godric or Eric.
Sookie hears a phone ringing while in the bathroom. It must be Jason’s cell phone. Another perk of vampire blood is increased hearing. She moves into the closet of her bedroom to pick out an outfit for today. She would like to spend some time with Godric and Isabel that doesn’t involve rescue attempts, explosions, or destruction. Dropping the towel on the closet floor, she grabs a matching set of undergarments. She quickly slides them into place, smiling as she thinks about how Eric will enjoy taking them off her later. She grabs a pair of dark blue jeans and puts them on.
“Sookie?” Jason calls quietly from her bedroom door.
“Just a minute,” she calls out while slipping her head through the opening of her pink tank top. She slides on a pair of matching pink flip-flops and walks out of the closet.
She finds Jason sitting on her bed. His shoulders are slumped and he is covering his face with her hands. She can’t make anything out in his thoughts; all she senses is sorrow. She moves quickly to the bed, sitting next to Jason and puts her hand on his shoulder. He pulls his face away from his hands. His eyes are red from the tears he is crying. He grabs her in a hug, squeezing her tightly to him.
