There were no dark clouds on the horizon.

Well, none that he could see, anyway. Will sighed, smiling as he braked for a red light. He was on his way to Hannibal's for dinner; he'd been invited over, and Will was sure that this would be the night they would finally discuss their burgeoning relationship.

There were no hovering clouds, nothing that really bothered him any more. He had put any disturbing thoughts out of his mind for good.

They didn't have any place in his relationship with Hannibal. He was loved, needed and wanted -- and he was secure in that fact. He wasn't going to let any of his paranoia ruin what they were so tenuously building. He wasn't going to mess this up.

Hannibal was everything to him. Everything.

Hannibal was the first person he had ever really wanted. Oh, he'd experienced some adolescent crushes, but that was it. That was pretty much the sum total of his sexual experience, too, he told himself wryly, pressing the pedal when the light turned green.

He had kissed someone recently, but it had been a thoroughly unpleasant experience. He'd only done it out of curiosity, to see what it would feel like, to try and discover if his latent feelings for Hannibal were merely lust, or something more.

When he had kissed her, he had known beyond a shadow of a doubt that what he felt for Hannibal was real. If it wasn't, then he wouldn't have felt as though he was being unfaithful to the person he truly loved. That guilt wouldn't have been in his heart.

It had shown him one very important thing -- that he didn't ever want to kiss anyone else. He had known from that moment on that Hannibal was the one for him, that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with the other man, and that he wouldn't be happy without him.

And now, miraculously, his feelings were returned.

It still seemed impossible to him that Hannibal could love him, but he did. He'd said so -- and Will knew that Hannibal wouldn't lie about something like that. Opening your heart to someone who cared for you was too important to lie about your feelings.

He trusted Hannibal. He had to. If he didn't, then their relationship was going nowhere. He was putting his paranoia to rest, pushing it away from him.

There would be no dark clouds in his thoughts to darken this night, no clouds to make their future look anything less than bright. They would talk about what they both expected from this relationship, and the road ahead would look a lot clearer.

Will smiled again as he pulled into the driveway. They had a lot to talk about.
