bill has known sookie 4 a longer time than eric has known her. Sookie has gave her virgnity 2 bill. Bill was there when sookie's gran died and was there to "comfort" her ( in both ways). Bill Knows more about Sookie. Eric was willing 2 give up sookie 4 Godric. Bill went out in the sun to save her.(he would do it twice). Even though sookie has eric's blood she has bill's 2. bill loves sookie so much when sookie resent bill's invite he was crushed and still went to save from Renee in the sun. Eric held sookie's friend laffte captive for weeks. Sookie slaped eric and said something like " u should be ashmed of youre self" and looked the same then when she said ill call the cops that's when he pulled out his fangs.Eric dosent really love her but bill does and sookie loves bill.
