for Eric

Isabel and Stan had miraculously been in agreement, by not approving of Godric's plans to travel to London. Their arguments held little weight, though, when compared to the sudden strong urge to see his progeny after decades apart, and as he knew they would, they'd grumbled but eventually accepted they weren't going to change his mind. He left strict instructions for them on the management of the nest in his absence, including not to tell anyone who didn't already know he was traveling, and set off for the airport, his arrangements made and confirmed before he told his lieutenants of his plans.

The next evening, he emerged from the casket in which he'd flown across the Atlantic, glamouring the customs official who'd been inspecting the casket paperwork, and without even checking into his hotel made his way to the Blood Diamond, Eric's center of control in the city.

He drew stares as he walked into the club. For the humans, he stood out both for his clothes, off-white tunic and loose trousers not the usual attire for a goth/vampire nightclub, and his apparent age being younger than the minimum. Among the vampires, it was those who sensed Godric's age and power that turned to look, some pulling back or nodding in recognition as he passed. He paused once he had a good view of the room, and the room of him, and waited, a hint of smile wanting to play over his face.

Eric had been at the bar, talking to one of his human managers, when he'd felt the familiar tug in his chest. He was not the only one whose attention was drawn to the short figure dressed in white making his way serenely through the crowd. The crowd parted just as easily for Eric himself as he left behind the confused human who trailed off mid-sentence.

Eric did not give a fuck who was watching. When he reached Godric, he looked at him for a beat, taking in his sight, his presence, then went down on one knee, his gaze on the ground. "Godric," he greeted him, the foreign-accented name inaudible to humans over the noise of the music, but a vampire such as Godric would be able to pick up on every single nuance of emotion Eric infused it with. He could not have helped it if he had wanted to, and he did not want to hold anything back from him.

"Of course," Eric agreed immediately, his hand in Godric's as he stood. Once up, he kept his shoulders hunched, his gaze on Godric's, all of his body language centered on him. "There is a VIP lounge upstairs, or my office in the back."

"The office," Eric decided without missing a beat. It had been decades, and if given a choice, he would choose true privacy, and a much lesser risk of interruptions.

He let go of Godric's hand and led the way, the crowd once again parting for him, for them this time. He heard the whispers of both vampires and humans, and ignored them all, pale as they were in comparison to Godric's presence.

Down a corridor and into a simple office, a desk, a couple of chairs, a couch lined up against a wall, a door leading to a bathroom.

"I didn't know you were coming," he told Godric. It was no accusation, more like an apology. "Are you hungry? I can call for someone."

But Eric had fallen short; Godric was in his city, and he had not known. Eric praised himself on keeping track of the comings and goings of anyone of importance and power, and Godric was certainly both, even beyond what he meant to Eric.

His last words washed through Eric, attempting to smooth away the ragged edges left by their last conversation, the way they had left things. Attempting, only. Eric had to ask, still holding Godric's gaze. "For a particular reason?"

"Fortunately, no one," Eric answered honestly, the brightness of hope obvious in his eyes. "Will you sit?" Indicating the couch with a hand.

"Better," Eric answered as he sat beside Godric, his body language still entirely focused on him, his shoulders slightly hunched. It was a more honest answer by far than he would have given most; it implied that he had not always been fine. So, of course, he followed that up with something that was the truth, but not all of the truth. "London is leagues better than fucking Shreveport."

Eric nodded when Godric stated his disagreement; what could a simple sheriff have done, even when he was Godric? If there had been anything to do, Eric would have done it himself.

"At least Pam's out," he stated evenly.

Out from under the Authority's thumb, if not out of their reach. That would never be the case, and she was the reason why Eric was doing this.

"It's not something I would ever take lightly," Eric confirmed, reaching out with his arm on the back of the couch so his fingers touched Godric's shoulder.

"Nothing that won't wait," Eric replied immediately, without a hint of hesitation. He shifted his hand slightly, to brush his thumb over Godric's cheek.

Breathing was not something that vampires needed to do to live, of course. But as they still needed air to speak, it was not a habit they ever truly shook. Not breathing, and not the small responses that came with it. When Godric's hand cupped his jaw, Eric's head dipped forward slightly, and he let out the small breath he would otherwise have used to speak.

He waited a second before raising his eyes to Godric's, head still tipped forward, and he would not have tried to hide his emotions from either his gaze or his voice as he answered, "As have I."

Eric closed his eyes for each kiss, returning the second with a tender, almost chaste kiss of his own. After not seeing Godric for decades, and having earned his disapproval, this felt like coming home and unlocked feelings inside Eric that packed his chest tight with a complicated warmth. His entire relationship with Godric was at once complex, and the simplest thing in the world.

"Thank you," he told his maker as he opened his eyes again. "For coming."

"You're always welcome," Eric told him, meaning every word. "As long as you want to stay." There was so much they ought to catch up on. While they had each kept tabs on each other in the years they had not seen each other, they hadn't talked about any of it. "How is Texas?"

Eric's lips curved ever so slightly, in appreciation of that fact. "A few weeks." It was a short while, a very short while, but compared to the time it had been since he had seen Godric, it was like a sip of water to a parched human. "I have a house, a little way out of the city."
