He almost wanted to laugh at the expression on Will's face.

But, of course, Hannibal wouldn't let himself do that. He knew that he was walking on a tightrope; he couldn't afford to make one wrong move.

One step in the wrong direction, and Will would back away from him, skittering off like a frightened rabbit. He wasn't going to take that chance, not that he finally had Will exactly where he wanted him, in a vulnerable position. Not when the two of them were completely alone.

Well, not completely alone. The dogs were here. But they were animals; as much as they cared for Will, and vice versa, they hardly counted as company.

Though he would accept them as a part of his life, for Will's sake.

At the moment, though, he wasn't thinking about their future together -- all he was focusing on was right here and now, in the present.

He wanted nothing more than to take a bite out of Will -- well, figuratively, of course, not literally. He wasn't going to introduce Will to the secret side of his life now, if ever. He simply wanted the two of them to get closer -- and to assuage Will's fears about him.

He wanted to kiss those perfect lips until Will was gasping his name, begging for more. He wanted to strip the clothing from that beautiful body and ....

Hannibal mentally reined himself in, admonishing himself for letting his fantasies move forward too quickly. One thing at a time, he cautioned himself inwardly.

If he moved too quickly, he would frighten Will, and send him scuttling back into his self-imposed isolation. He had vowed to himself that he would draw Will out of that aloofness, that he would uncover a side to this young man that no one had ever seen before.

A sensual side that would surprise even Will himself. A side that Will would probably never have imagined he possessed, if not for this day, this moment, and Hannibal's insistence.

With that thought, he leaned closer to the young man, their gazes locking.

Reluctantly, Hannibal forced himself to pull back just when his lips were close enough to brush across that delectable mouth. Not too quickly, his inner voice cautioned.

"I thought it would be a nice idea to enjoy a picnic together, and this is a very picturesque spot," Hannibal said, keeping his voice smooth as he leaned back. He didn't miss the flash of disappointment that crossed Will's features; that expression made him smile.

Will did want him. He couldn't doubt that now. He was sure that young man wanted to take a bite just as badly as he did, to sample heretofore unknown pleasures.

And he would introduce Will to all of those pleasures, in good time.
