Pairing: Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham
Author's Note: Sequel to "Powerful Attraction."

***His attraction to Will was undeniable.
He hungered for Will. He wanted to immerse himself in the young man, to lose himself. He wanted to know everything about Will -- not only what was hidden within that fascinating mind, but that beautiful body as well. He wanted to know Will from the inside out.
Hannibal didn't know what drew him to Will like the proverbial moth to a flame. But there was an attraction between them that he had never felt with anyone else.
He knew that Will felt the same; it had surprised him that the young man had thrown himself into the physical side of their relationship with such abandon. Will had been a virgin the first time they had been together, yet he had given no pause, shown no hesitation.
For someone with Will's intimacy issues, that was a great compliment indeed. Or perhaps it was just another side of their animal attraction to each other.
He had never expected to feel that sort of attraction for anyone. He had always thought that his sexual appetites were controlled -- but with Will, they seemed to veer off course, to go wild. When it came to Will, control was hard to maintain.
And it seemed to be the same for Will.
That in itself was gratifying, Hannibal thought with a smile. Will threw himself into their lovemaking with an abandon that seemed to come from his soul.
Knowing that Will wanted him so desperately only drove him to greater heights. He had never exerted himself to give anyone pleasure in the way that he did with Will. And he had never let anyone burrow so deeply into his heart.
That, too, had been unexpected. But then, Will had been special to him from the beginning, from the first moment their gazes had met.
That was when the attraction had started. He had barely been able to keep his eyes off of Will -- the intense blue eyes, the porcelain skin, the pink rosebud lips, the curly brown hair that his fingers had itched to run through. He was absolutely stunning.
Of course, he tried to play that down. But even if no one else could see and appreciate his beauty, Hannibal could. And he would always do so.
Will was the most gorgeous creature he had ever seen.
But that wasn't the only reason that he was so attracted to Will. It wasn't just his incredible beauty -- which he unfortunately tried to play down -- but his mind as well.
Hannibal could lose himself inside that fascinating mind. He could spend hours, no, days exploring all of the delicious twists and turns that mind took. He could spend a lifetime trying to decipher Will, but he was sure that he'd still never get the entire picture.
Will was an enigma in many ways, just as much as he himself was. Only one more thing that made them so perfect for each other, Hannibal told himself.
He would never get bored with Will. He would never feel that their relationship was fading, and that he was ready to put the younger man aside.
He was absolutely sure of that. Nothing would ever make him tire of Will; he couldn't imagine ever not being able to have Will by his side, at his command. He couldn't imagine his life without Will, now that the young man was firmly ensconced at the center of it.
A life without Will would be no life at all, really. It would be a mere existence -- and one that he wasn't sure he wanted to lead.
Life without Will would be terribly boring. And very lonely.
Thinking of life without that attraction to brighten every day almost made him shiver. He didn't want to have to contemplate a life without Will Graham in it.
There were times when Hannibal wondered how he had filled his days and nights -- especially his nights -- before Will had come into his life. Had he really spent so much time reading, simply sitting and listening to music, or out roaming the darkened streets?
Yes, he had. But he had changed a great deal since the advent of Will in his life. He hadn't become a completely different man, but he had changed.
He found that he liked the changes Will had wrought in him. He felt calmer now, more centered. Though they didn't spend every night together, and though he still had his nights of solitary wandering, as well as the nights of being at home alone, he was more ... content.
It was amazing what finding someone to share his life had done for him. And all because of an undeniable attraction that he hadn't been able to resist.
An attraction that he would always be grateful for.
Without that attraction, he might never have discovered the wonder that was Will Graham, never have been able to uncover not only the secrets of that delicious, delightful mind, but also the physical needs and desires of the most passionate man he'd ever known.
Without that undeniable attraction, he might never have felt that he was able to open himself up to another person, to let himself care for someone.
That had been the greatest gift that anyone could possibly have given him -- the gift of being able to let some of the walls he'd built up around himself come crumbling to the ground, the gift of no longer feeling that he was completely alone in the world.
If anyone other than Will had given him that gift, it wouldn't have been nearly as precious. And again, all because of an attraction that had been irresistible.
He thanked that attraction, glad that it had hit him when it had. Without it, he would have spent the rest of his life alone -- and now that he had Will, that was something he didn't want to contemplate. Now that he had Will, he was happier than he had ever been.
For the first time in his life, he felt .... complete. And content.
