Club Dead


Bill: My Sookie hid a corpse?
Eric: I don’t think you can be too sure about that possessive pronoun.
Bill: Where did you learn that term, Northman?
Eric: I took ‘English as a Second Language’ at a community college in the seventies.
Bill: She is mine.
[I wondered if my hands would move. They would. I raised both of them, making an unmistakable one fingered gesture. Eric laughed.]
Bill [shocked]: Sookie!
Eric: I think that Sookie is telling us she belongs to herself.
