Hannibal moved off the couch, not taking his gaze away from Will as he reached for his clothes and began to get dressed. He hadn't intended to take Will, but his hunger for the young man had spiraled out of control, and he couldn't find it in himself to have regrets.

It could be a while before he would have the opportunity to be with Will physically again, and he had wanted it to happen one last time before taking him to the hospital.

He was becoming dangerously entangled with Will Graham, despite all of his inner warnings to be careful of doing just that. There was something about Will that drew him like the proverbial moth to a flame -- it was much more than mere desire, more than simply wanting.

Will was the one person whose hunger matched his own.

Oh, he didn't mean just their hunger for each other's bodies, for the pleasure that they could take from their couplings. Will's dark side was a counterpart to his -- they would be a perfectly matched pair once he taught Will to break free from the constraints of society.

It remained to be seen whether he would be able to coerce Will into doing so, but it would be a fascinating challenge for him. So far, he thought that he'd been doing a masterful job of it -- but Will's illness had gotten in the way of his careful plans.

It wouldn't do for Will to become deathly ill while he was coaxing those plans to fruition. The experiment would certainly fail if that illness caused Will's death; he would never find another pawn as perfectly suited to him as Will was. He wouldn't risk losing him.

He would have to take Will to the hospital now, and stay with him while he was being treated. The truth of their relationship could very well come out into the open, but he didn't really mind. His professional reputation could withstand the scrutiny.

After all, Will hadn't technically been his patient.

No one would be able to say that he'd had an illicit relationship with a patient, because he hadn't officially been treating Will. They'd only talked as two friends -- and that friendship had gradually turned into something more. No one could claim that he had crossed a line.

As long as they could keep their hunger for each other hidden until Will left the hospital and was back in his care -- and under his control -- everything would be fine.

Hannibal held out a hand to Will, smiling as he did so. Those hidden hungers they both harbored would have to be kept in check for a while, but it wouldn't be long before they could let those hungers run free -- and he could turn Will back to the path he was meant to be on.
