"It's still light outside." Will took a deep breath, looking over at Hannibal. "that means that I shouldn't be afraid to take a walk in the woods, right?"

Hannibal raised an eyebrow at him, then frowned.

"You have me with you at the moment," he said, his voice very soft. "But don't forget, Will, that you shouldn't be walking here by yourself. Especially after dark. In the daytime, you can defend yourself -- but as well as you may know these woods, I believe that your assailant knows them better."

Will had no answer for that; he had the uncomfortable feeling that Hannibal was right.

If the person who had attacked him was indeed stalking him, and spying on his house every night, then there was nothing he could do about it.

He simply had to wait and hope that he could catch the bastard unawares Unless they thought his life was in imminent peril, the FBI wasn't going to assign a protective detail to him. And he didn't want that, not really. It would feel too ... intrusive.

So what did he do now? Will sighed, accepting the inevitable.

He simply had to wait for his attacker to make another move. There were no other options open. He'd just have to be vigilant -- which meant constantly looking over his shoulder.

He hated that. But again, what choice did he have? There were no easy answers, no matter which way he turned, or how hard he looked for them.

"Come on," he said, glancing at Hannibal as he stepped off the porch. "Let's go for a walk."
