The Thirst: First Flirtation (Book 2)

Sequel to First Encounter.
Hannibal and Jade now know each other true identities. But since the fight between them Hannibal thinks Jade is dead. Jade however is very much alive and looking for revenge. But as a vampire she knows that sometimes the best revenge, is to not attack someone. Sometimes you have to slither your way into their lives, and take away something, or someone, they hold dear.


8. Confronting Hannibal

Fueled with anger Jade made her way over to Hannibal's office as soon as she left Will's house. She figured if Hannibal wasn't there she would then hunt him down to his house. And she would keep hunting him until she found him.

She wasn't sure why she was mad about what she had learned, Hannibal was a killer after all. It shouldn't surprise her that he was allowing Will's brain to cook as it were. She also didn't know why she cared, other than the fact that maybe she was slowly starting to like Will. He was awkward and cute, and more importantly human and not some psycho.

Jade stopped for a moment and looked around to get her bearings. In her anger she wasn't paying all that much attention to where she was, but she was surprised to find that she was close to Hannibal's office. Growling to herself she picked up her pace, and once she hit the stairs she took them two at a time. Making her way into the building she paused only long enough to make sure he wasn't with someone before turning the knob and throwing the door open.

"What are you doing to him?!" Jade shouted as she stormed over to him.

He was currently standing over next to a small cabinet that he closed as soon as he had heard, or seen her.

"What do you mean?" he asked turning towards her.

"Oh don't give me that bullshit, Hannibal. I can smell it, the chemicals, not to mention his brain. You can't tell me you don't. If you are the kind of killer I think you are, I know you can smell it too."

"I think you are mistaken."

"Oh ho ho ho." She laughed. "Hannibal the cannibal. You think I wouldn't figure it out? I am not stupid like the little lambs you surround yourself with. Do you just plan on letting him die? Is that it?"

"How is that any different from your plans?"

"I never said I was going to kill him. I was just using him. Using him to get to you. He is just a pawn in my game, sure. But at least I am not heartless enough to just let him die."

She was surprised when he backhanded her. Ok so she must have pushed the right buttons. Turning to face him again she returned the favor. He went to hit her with a right hook but she just ducked under it before kicking him in the chest, sending him flying back. In a flash she was in front of him, holding onto his shirt and ready to punch him, but she paused.

"You're not worth it." She let him go. "Not this time. It's not worth it." With that she spun on her heels and walked out of his office.

The problem was as she stood outside on the sidewalk she wasn't feeling any better about the situation. She need to shed blood, and lots of it. Preferably someone that she could also beat to a bloody pulp. She needed to hunt, but not for food. No, she needed to release the beast that was inside her, the vampire's true nature. She didn't want to do it in town however.

So pulling her cell phone out of her pocket she called Liam. In no time he was there in some kind of SUV, she wasn't sure which model specifically as they all looked the same to her. He probably stole it from somewhere. They then headed to Ashburn in silence, or at least it had started out in silence.

"You going to tell me what is wrong?" Liam asked.


"Come on, Jade I can feel your anger from all the way over here. Not to mention if this car get's any warmer it's going to start melting."

"Just shut up and drive," she snapped.

Halfway to Ashburn they pulled the car over and got out. It wouldn't be smart to take it all the way and possibly get caught. From there they used a combination of vampire speed and magic to get the rest of the way to their destination.

Once they got into town Jade wasted no time going into the nearest little shop, making sure to lock the door behind Liam. She was excited to feel that at least ten people were in the little shop. Turning to Liam she smiled to him.

"Cover the exits, my love," she said sweetly to him.

He nodded and made his way to the back exit, ignore the workers yelling at him that he was not allowed.

She then whispered a few words that caused all the blinds and shutters to close. She didn't need anyone peeking in and seeing what she was about to do.

Ten bodies later Jade slid down a blood covered wall as she looked at the scene before her. Bodies, or at least parts of bodies, were all over the place. Things had been knocked to the floor and almost every inch of the little shop was covered in blood. Hell even she was covered in blood. Her hands shook as she ran them through her mess of hair. It wasn't long before Liam was in her line of sight.

"Jade, we should go, before someone shows up."

She blinked a couple times before looking up at him. It took her a while for what he said to click but soon she nodded her head in agreement. He then helped her to her feet.

"You crazy girl," he whispered as they made their way to the back of the shop. "We need to get you cleaned up before we go home. I will rent a motel room, you just keep in the shadows."

She didn't answer. She just walked with him and did as he told. When they got to a ratty motel she hid in the shadows, staying out of sight. After he got a room they silently walked to it before going in. Once inside Liam told Jade to go take a shower, which she did. While she was washing up he had gone out and gotten her some new clothes.

After the shower Jade felt loads better and seemed to be more herself. Once she was dressed and ready to go Liam left ahead of her to check out. Once he was done with that they then made their way back home.
