4. The Date

A few weeks had gone by and surprisingly Jade and Will had spent quite a bit of time together. They mostly had casual outings , as that was more comfortable for him. But they had also gone on a few dates. She had been surprised, among other things, when he had asked her to attend a small party at Hannibal's house. At first she had been unsure, as she didn't think she was ready for Hannibal to know she was alive. However the more she thought about it the more she thought it was a good idea. This way Hannibal couldn't try anything against her.

That was why she was currently standing in front of a mirror, checking herself out. She was wearing a little black dress that showed enough chest to be flirty, but not so much it would be trashy. Her natural curly hair hung in loose ringlets. She also had on two inch heels and carried a silver clutch to match her smokey eyeshadow. She looked herself over one last time before she heard the doorbell.

Leaving her bedroom Jade made her way to the front door. She brushed herself off one last time before slowly opening the door to reveal a very handsome looking Will on the other side. She smiled at him.

"Wow." He look stunned. Something that made her smile even more.

"Well don't you look handsome."

"You look," he paused. "Beautiful."

"Thank you. Are we ready?"

"Oh. Yes, do you have everything you need?"

"I do." She smiled as she walked out of her house, locking the door behind her.

Will walked with her to his car before he opened the door for her. Something that took her by surprise. It had been a while since a man had been chivalrous with her. Once she was in he quickly made his way around to the driver's side.

The ride to Hannibal's house was quiet. Jade was unsure what to say because her body was humming with emotions. Her hands clenched into fists with her annoyance, but her legs bounced with excitement. She was also chewing her lip with nervousness.

After they pulled up to Hannibal's house Will paused before getting out of the car.

"Are you ok?"

"Huh? Ya why do you ask?"

"Well for one your knees is bouncing rather quickly and you lips are red from chewing on them."

"Oh," she said defeated.

"I guess I just don't see where I belong here? These people are all.. sophisticated, and educated and crap. I am nothing like them."

"I am sorry you feel that way, but I understand. Would you rather I take you back home."

"No, I think I will be fine. I want to do this for you." She turned and smiled at him. She then nodded, letting him know she was ok. He smiled back before leaving the car and going around to open her door. When she got out of the car however a shiver ran up her spin.

"Are you cold?" Will asked.

"No. Just one of those random chills." She offered a fake smile, and he seemed to buy it. As they walked across the property to Hannibal's house Jade scanned the area. There was only one way she could feel the cold, and that was if Liam was behind it. She had to wonder if he was here. God she hoped not. She was sure she had made it clear to him to leave Hannibal alone. So what was he doing here?

Jade didn't get the chance to contemplate it much more as they walked into the house. For a moment she was surprised by the grandness of it all. Then she remember whose house it was.

She tried to ignore all the people that were looking at her but it was hard. On top of that she was still worried as to why exactly Liam was here. Did he need her for something? She should have taken the time to figure it out.

She snapped her head around as she felt someone grab her hand and noticed it was none other than Will's. Relaxing some she looked up and smiled at him. In the corner of her eyes she saw someone walking up. Facing the person she had to hide the smirk that was trying to break onto her lips. The fun had just begun.

"Will, I am so glad you could make it. And you brought..." he paused and in that moment she saw it. "Miss Moretti, what a pleasant surprise." He finished like nothing was wrong.

It was just a flash, but she had seen it nonetheless. The look of sheer panic when you realize the person you thought you killed was in fact very much alive. It had flashed in Hannibal's eyes for a moment. Something that brought her great joy. Her plan was working. She could also see it in his mind. He was wondering what she was doing here, alive, and standing next to Will. She notice his eyes skip down to her neck for a moment. He was wonder why she didn't bear a scar from when he sliced a knife across her throat.

"Please, didn't I ask you to call me Jade," she said sweetly.

"My apologizes. Welcome to my home. I hope you find the food to your liking."

Jade was almost tempted to make a snarky comment, but instead she bit her tongue. She didn't want to ruin this. Not when she had both Hannibal and Will where she wanted them.

"If you two men will excuse me I think I will have a look around." She smiled before walking away from both of them, ignoring the look Hannibal had given her.

She was wandering around the general area, keeping a close eye on Will, who was still talking to Hannibal, when something caught her notice. She turned in the direction of the smell and noticed a waiter near by with a tray of food. Cocking her head to the side she slowly made her way over to him. Smiling sweetly she picked something up off the tray. It was some kind of meat treat, but the thing that was catching her attention was the smell of the meat. It didn't smell like any animal. At least not any normal animal. In fact it smelled very much like... her eyes widen and she turned in the direction of Hannibal. His maroon eyes locked with her blue ones. She could tell he knew what she had discovered. This meat, it wasn't animal. This was human.
