9. The Truth Comes Out

Jade had been pleasantly surprised when Will had called her up on day and asked if she wanted to have dinner. She agreed and they had decided to do it at her house.

The day of the dinner was upon them and Jade was currently having trouble getting Liam to be ok with it.

"I am just having dinner with one human. It is no big deal," Jade said dryly.

"Why? Why would you allow such a filthy creature into your home?" Liam asked.

"He is not a rat Liam."

"He may as well be."

"What is the real problem here? The fact that I am having dinner with a human, instead of having him for dinner."

"Yes. This charade has gone on long enough. Just eat him and move on."

"Look if you don't like it then don't be here! Now if you excuse me I have to go buy food that looks like I cooked it!" She then proceed to shove him out her door before grabbing her things and leaving as well.


Everything was ready for dinner, all that was missing was Will. Jade took the time she spent waiting for him to finish freshen up her house and herself. Once the clock hit 8 she heard her doorbell. Smiling to herself she made her way to the door and opened it.

"Hello, Will." She smiled. "Please, come in." She moved to the side so he could walk in.

They talked for a few moment before Jade showed him into her dinner room where the food was ready. As they ate dinner they talked and laughed, enjoying the moment. When they were both done Jade gathered up their plates.

"Why don't you head into the entertainment room and I will meet you there," She said. She then proceeded into the kitchen. However as she was putting things away something caught her ear. Then a smell greeted her nose. Dropping the plates to the ground she ran toward the direction of Will. As soon as she entered the room she growled. For there was Liam, with a body on her pool table, that he was still drinking from.

"What the..." Will said.

Liam looked up then and growled, blood dripped from his mouth, his fangs showing.

Jade acted quickly and jumped in front of Will's line of sight.

"It's not what it looks like Will."

" You... you eat people." Will said with a look of disgust.

"No, no we don't." Jade said trying to calm him down.

"Yes, you do! He is eating her!"

"It's not like that Will."

"She right. We actually drink their blood."


"Oh, thats so much better."

"Will, let me explain..."

"What are you?"


"For god sakes Liam!"

"Come on Jade, he is just a lamb waiting for the slaughter. Quit acting like you care!"

It was then that Will started to back away from them, stumbling as he went.

"Will..." Jade tried for sweetness and understanding but he was already gone.

Growling she turned her attention to Liam. She moved over to him and threw him away from the body. In a flash she was standing above him, hitting him with everything she was had.

"What part of "I am having a human over" did you not understand?!" she screamed at him.

"I thought you meant we would have the humans as dinner. Not that we would we having dinner with them!" he shouted back as he blocked her punches.

"Don't play innocent! I told you I was having him over!"

At one point when she was in between punches he landed a kick on her chest, sending her stumbling back. Liam stood up then and held his arm out before she could attack him again.

"You do realize he is probably going to the cops."

Jade froze. As pissed as she was at Liam he was right. The chances of Will going to the cops was too high. They needed to follow him.

"Let's go."

"Why am I going?"

"'Cause clearly I can't trust you!" She shouted.

They left her house quickly so they could easily pick up Will's trail. They were relieved to note the trail didn't lead toward the police, that meant less hassle. But that still didn't mean anything. From what she knew Will could easily be going straight to Jack's house.

However Jade was both surprised and annoyed to find that Will had gone to Hannibal's house.

"Good, they're together. Now we can kill them both and get it over with."

"We are not going to kill them," she growled.

"Fine I'll do it."

"Liam!" She reached out to grab him but he was too fast. Cursing to herself she quickly followed him.

She found herself chasing Liam through Hannibal's house until they went through a set of sliding double wood doors. She paused a moment to look at the room they were in and the scene before her. They appeared to be in a dining room, with a long wooden table in the middle spanning almost the entire length of the room. Will was in a chair and he appeared to be staring off in space, like he wasn't even aware of what was going on. And Hannibal was standing in front of Will, trying to protect him from Liam.

Thinking quickly she pointed to Liam. "Congelo!" she shouted.

She slumped her shoulders in relief to see that the spell had worked.

"How did you get into my house?" Hannibal asked.

"What do you mean?"

"I thought vampires needed to be invited in."

"Someone's been watching too much Buffy," she grumbled. "Sorry to burst your bubble but that only works on halflings and lower. I'm a pureblood, baby."

"I can not let you kill him."

"I am not here to kill him. You," she pointed to him. "On the other hand." She smirked. "So you've done some research."

"Once I found out you were still alive I had to look into what you are."

She clapped. "Well congratulations for being one of the few humans to not only survive a vampire fight but also live long enough to do research. Bravo."

Hannibal seemed to ignore that part. "Why don't you want to kill him?"

She shrugged.

"Do you love him?"

"I am a creature of the underworld. I can't afford to love. Do you?"

He ignored her again. "I am curious as to why you don't want to kill him."

"Not every vampire is like my brother. Some of us can refrain from killing everyone we meet. Though I do have to admit. According to vampire law he should be put to death, as should you. Since you both know about us."

"But yet here we are, very much alive."

"That could easily be fixed."

"You say that, but yet you stopped Liam from doing just that."

"If anyone is to kill you it is going to be me. I am the one that exposed us, so it is my duty to finish you." She walked over to Liam then, just in case he broke her spell.

"Why don't you?"

"I am beginning to wonder if you want me to." She turned her eyes to Hannibal then.

"Of course not."

"I will leave you two be, but I will have to keep an eye on Will. Make sure he doesn't try telling anyone."

"I don't think you have to worry about that." Hannibal looked to Will, who was still staring off in space. "How can you be so sure that I won't tell anyone?"

"You, doctor, have a reputation. You won't go running around talking about things that don't exist." She then whispered something in Liam's ear before snapping her fingers. In a puff of smoke Liam disappeared. She then silently made her way out of Hannibal's house.
