7. Lunch At Will's

Jade had done a fair job of sneaking up to the door of Will's house, the only problem was that now that she was here at his door she hesitated. Having a BBQ had been her idea sure, but she hadn't planned on it happening at Will's house. Usually she wouldn't care about such things, however she had worked hard to become Will's "girlfriend" in order to get her revenge on Hannibal. She just didn't want to risk anything happening that screwed it up.

"Oh hell," she grumbled to herself. She was about to turn around when she heard barking from inside the house. She froze. He had dogs. Oh hell no. Dogs could mean bad business for her, with their stupid heightened senses and shit.

Jade made her way down the stairs when she heard the door open followed by her name. Cussing to herself she slowly turned around, plastering a smile on her face.

"Were you leaving?" he asked.

"Uh no. Just uh... dogs. I didn't know you had dogs."

"Is that a problem?"

"Psh... na. I love dogs." She lied. But on the inside she was dying. "Just you know... meat.." She held up the plate she was holding. "Just wanted to put some distance between myself and the dogs incase they ran out and tackled me or something." This was hell. She had finally died the final death and she was now in hell. It was the only way to explain how she would be so unlucky as to be dating the guy with dogs. Not cats, or rabbits, or hell even snakes, but fucking dogs.

"They will behave I promise. Come on in."

She nodded and made her way back up the stairs.

"I didn't hear you come up."

"I uh... had Liam drop me off a ways back and I walked the rest. No biggy." But she could feel something in his thoughts. He was unsure of how she was talking. Always pausing and saying uh. She had to pull herself together or this was going to fail.

"I'm sorry Will, I guess I am just a little nervous being here is all."

"Are you afraid to be alone with me?"

"Yes. No! No. Not because of you. Because of what I... how I feel when I am with you." She blushed and looked away.

"And how do you feel?"

"I uh.. we should probably get started..." she went to walk past him but he just held arm out and stopped her.

Jade just stood there, waiting to see what he would do. It wasn't long before he wrapped his arm around her waist. He took a step closer to her before gently kissing her on the lips. She smiled into the kiss before deepening it some, but they didn't get too far as one of the dogs growled then. When they broke the kiss she shot the dog a glare before smiling at Will.

"That was better than I thought it would be," she said softly.

"Did you think it was going to be bad?"

"No, I always pictured it being good. But it was still better than what I pictured."

"You pictured us kissing?"

"Among other things." She smirked. "Come on, I'm starving. And this isn't going to cook itself." She lifted the bag of steaks she had brought.

Will took the bag from her and made his way into what she would assume was the kitchen, but she took a moment before turning to face all of this dogs and growl. They all seemed to hunch back then, as they were finally aware of the fact that she was the apex predator and was not to be messed with. She then followed Will into the kitchen.


Since it was cold and there was snow outside they had opted to eat inside the house, unlike a normal BBQ. They were having a good time talking and laughing while enjoying their lunch, but something kept bothering Jade. She could smell something, she wasn't sure what though. It wasn't like anything she had really smelled before, so she knew it wasn't food or anything like that. Finally getting annoyed about not being able to figure it out Jade stood up from the table, which seemed to surprise Will.

"Something wrong?"

"No, just have to use the restroom. It's..." She spun her finger around until he pointed in the direction for her. Smiling she walked in that direction.

Of course as soon as she was out of the kitchen she made her way quickly and quietly around his house, trying to find where that blasted smell was coming from. But she was having no luck. Giving up she then made her way back into the kitchen and was surprised when she almost ran into Will, who was coming out.

"There you are."

"Sorry. I wanted to make sure I was fresh before coming back out." She smiled at him.

"That's fine. I was thinking we could go for a walk." He moved past her to go to the door and that was when it hit her. It was him. The smell was coming from Will.

She closed her eyes and drew in everything around her. Quickly her mind categorized every scent. She quickly filtered out and dismissed all the familiar ones before she came across a few that should not be there. Most of them were from a chemical mixture, something that made her frown and really bothered her. The last thing, she couldn't put a name to it, but it smelt wrong, and sickening.


Her eyes snapped open as she heard Will's voice.

"I'm sorry. I don't mean to be rude." She said softly. "As much as I would enjoy a walk I actually have to go see a doctor about something." Ya Doctor Lecter.

"Oh, is everything ok?"

"I believe so. But it doesn't hurt to check you know."

"Of course. I will see you around?"

"Course. Maybe next time we will have dinner at my place. Just you and me."

"What about Liam?"

"Only if he promises to behave." She smirked.

Will chuckled, causing her to smile.

"Goodbye Jade."

"Catcha later, lover." She leaned in and kissed him softly on the lips before walking out the door.
