1 Work in Sam Merlotte/Alaric Saltzman
Having been killed by Damon one time too many, Alaric hits the road. Looking for somewhere he can settle without having to think about vampires any more. Unfortunately for Ric, his car breaks down just outside of Bon Temps.
“I could dump the car. Buy a bus ticket. Except I can’t dump the fucking piece of shit car. Because it’s the only thing I own and all my stuff’s in it. I can’t stay here.” Rick kicks the tyre but not like he means it. “And I have nowhere to go.”
Sam nods wisely. “Want my opinion?”
Rick offers a strangled laugh. “Why the fuck not?”
“If you’ve got nowhere to go and no way to get there, next best thing seems to me to be to just stay put.”
