And now, because I hate you all, some Sloan/Eragon.


Meat

Eragon walked to the butcher's shop and all he could think of was Sloan's meat. He needed Sloan's meat so badly. He hoped that Sloan would give him some meat, since he didn't have any money to pay for it. Well at least he had that large shiny stone. Perhaps that would be enough for Sloan's meat.

He opened the door to the butcher's shop and it was nice and warm. Sloan was standing there with some sausages in his hand. Eragon watched as Sloan handled the meat expertly in his large butcher's hands, wishing that it was his meat that was being handled.

"What do you want, boy?" the butcher asked.

"I need some meat," Eragon said walking up to the counter.

"Weren't you able to find your own meat?"

"No, I wasn't, so I need your meat."

"Do you have money? I don't give my meat away for free," he said holding up his sausages.

Eragon eyed Sloan's meat hungrily. He really needed Sloan's meat. He didn't want it, but he needed it. He had to have it. "No, I don't have any money."

Sloan leaned over the counter and said to him, "Well, I guess you're just not going to get any meat then."

"But I need your meat! I must have it!" Eragon demanded. Why shouldn't Sloan give him his meat?

"No money, no meat," Sloan said with an air of finality.

In despair Eragon pulled out his large stone. "Please, take this for your meat." And he shoved the stone at Sloan. The butcher handled his stone carefully as Eragon watched him hopefully, almost groaning.

"I can give you a little bit of meat for this stone."

"Only a little? But I need so much more than that!"

"I'm sorry but your stone isn't worth that much."

Eragon wailed in despair. He wasn't going to get all the meat that he wanted.

Then Hurst walked into the door and said, "I'll pay for your meat Eragon."

Eragon was so happy then, because now he could get Sloan's meat!

Some Brom/Eragon with hints of Eragon/Murtagh, because I still hate you all.


Meat, pt. 2

Eragon stood by Brom's tomb and ruminated about how he would never do anything with the old man ever again. The man had been like a father to him and now he was dead. No longer would they share things together. Like meat.

They had shared a lot of meat together on this journey. Ever since Brom had caught him coming out of Sloan's they had meat together. Their first time had been in the cold and snow, a very simple affair. Eragon was almost ashamed of it. But Brom didn't mind.

So they had meat often, every day.

Sometimes it felt like Eragon never wanted meat again, but then he realized he needed it. He needed it to survive and Brom was always willing to share his meat with him.

That was the best part of their journey, the sharing of the meat.

Sometimes they would share with Saphira. That had been an awe inspiring experience, sharing her meat. It had always tasted better, knowing that it had come from her. And when Brom had shown him how to use magic to get his meat... well things were never the same between the two of them.

In fact, Eragon felt that it only made them stronger, closer.

But now Brom was dead. They never had a chance to share their meat again. Just one last drink of wine, a clumsy offering to what they had had before. And now he was alone.

Or was he?

Murtagh had given him soup.

Perhaps the young man would share meat with him too.

Do not ask where this came from. It just came to me. So ... read... and yeah. *flees*



The Tables Turned

It was not the sort of room you would expect an evil despot to be found in. The room was rather nice, actually. Tall windows looked out over gardens. Tapestries were hung on the stone walls and a large table sat in the center of it. Standing by one of the windows a man, strong –perhaps handsome at one time- certainly with an aura of power, looked out into the gardens.
