Title: We've fallen
Fandom: True Blood
Pairing: Bill/Sookie
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Your love hurts me, and yet I can't live without you.

He didn't mean to drag her into that world. It was what he wanted the least when he first met her, so fresh and soft. So beautiful, so alive.

And now Sookie's face is full of scars, wounds that don't look good on someone like her, that detract from her original beauty. Bill holds her close as if saying that everything will be fine, even though he knows that it won't be. He knows that it's only the beginning, but saying it out loud makes it more real, crueler. So he stays quiet, tenderly stroking Sookie's hair and feeling her breath against his skin.

But Sookie is also full of surprises. She suddenly stands up, wiping the tears off her face as she decidedly looks at Bill in the eyes. And now she's the one saying that everything will be fine, that she's willing to go through horrible things as long as it means she'll stay with Bill. He believes her, and that's what hurts the most.

And as they lay side by side, they appear to be destined to the same thing: to hurt each other just by loving each other.
