Was it weak of him to give himself to Hannibal in the way he did?

Will frowned, propping his chin on his hand and staring off into space. His classes were done for the day, and he really didn't have any reason to still be here, but he had some thinking to do, and he didn't want to be preoccupied on the drive to Hannibal's house.

He had a lot to think about. Their relationship was getting more serious, more complicated, more involved. This was what he'd wanted all along.

But with that involvement came some serious thinking. There were great things about them being together, and there were some drawbacks, too. he could already feel them, and he couldn't wondering if Hannibal was the same, if he was having doubts.

No, Will told himself firmly. They weren't doubts, exactly.

He simply felt that things were getting complicated, and that they had to have a talk about where they stood, and where they both wanted their relationship to go. He was starting to feel as though he was weak, helpless, a puppet when it came to his feelings for Hannibal.

He didn't like that feeling. He wanted it to go away, but instead of dissipating the longer they were together, it only seemed to grow.

Hannibal was his weakness. He had already acknowledged that to himself. But was that weakness a danger to him and his own well-being?

The longer that he was involved with Hannibal, the more he felt himself submitting to his lover's desires. There were times when he felt as though he was being submerged, losing something of himself and his own free will by letting Hannibal take him over.

Was that a good thing? Or was he becoming far too submissive?

Will sighed, taking off his glasses and rubbing his eyes. He was tired; it had been a long day, and this wasn't the best thing to think about these things. He didn't feel that he could talk about them with Hannibal, though. They had to be kept to himself, at least for a while.

Maybe he would be able to iron them out one day to his satisfaction. He had to, really. If he didn't, then their relationship was going to be strained.

He'd have to talk about this with Hannibal sooner or later, but not before he thought it through himself, and came to his own conclusions. Then, and only then, would he talk to his lover about what he was starting to feel could become a dangerous weakness for him.

Would Hannibal agree with him? That remained to be seen.
