As I Love You


Hannibal quickly made his descent to Will by climbing down from his balcony.

“Will, what are you—?” Hannibal stopped, swiftly finding his composure once more. He narrowed his eyes.

“Please, take a seat, Will.” He waited for the other to do so before he sat down on the chair facing him like they usually did during their supposedly little psychiatric sessions.

“How much have you heard?”

Will mumbled something incoherently.

“Excuse me?”

“Possibly everything,” Will said more assertively.

“I see,” Hannibal said, tone a bit cold. “And what are your thoughts on the matter?”

He clutched Will to him in an embrace then kissed him lightly at first then deeply just as he had said. Will melted into his ministrations, and they only stopped when they were beginning to pant for breath.

“I think I love you,” said Will, lips rosy red and abused.

“Well, I certainly do,” said Hannibal and gave him another chaste kiss on the lips.
