Will followed Hannibal up the steps in silence, wondering what his lover was going to do next. He knew that they were going to Hannibal's bedroom, and that they would have sex again. But other than that, he had no idea what he should be mentally preparing himself for.

That was, of course, one of the most exciting things about his relationship with Hannibal. He never knew quite what he should expect at any given moment.

Will had to suppress a smile at the thought that flitted through his mind. Being Hannibal Lecter's lover was a little bit like playing croquet with live bombs. It was incredibly exciting, knowing that such danger was so close. But it was stressful knowing that it could all blow up in his face.

Still, he wouldn't trade this relationship for any other.

Hannibal was the only person who had been able to unlock all of the desires that he'd kept inside for so long. Hannibal was the only one who understood those desires, and had the capability to fulfill all of them -- and even some others that Will hadn't known about.

Hannibal was the only person who truly knew him. He hadn't revealed everything yet, of course. Two could play at that game. But he was giving up his secrets faster than Hannibal was revealing his own; in some ways, it felt like a balancing act.

They were both always trying to find out more about each other -- but Hannibal was better at only doling out small bits of information at a time. When Will let anything about himself slip, he always felt the need to explain himself, letting Hannibal in even more in the process.

He was in the darkness a lot of the time when it came to Hannibal -- Will still knew very little about his past, or even about his feelings regarding their relationship. Most of the time, he felt that darkness enshrouded his lover, figuratively and literally, just as it did now.

But at the same time, he wasn't sure that he wanted a light to pierce that darkness.

Not knowing much about Hannibal only served to make their relationship more exciting. He knew that this man fulfilled needs that he'd kept hidden from everyone -- even from himself -- for most of his life. That was really all that he needed -- or wanted -- to know.

Maybe there would be a point when he would want that darkness to be stripped away. But Will was sure that it would be a long time before Hannibal would step fully into the light.

Dimly, he could see the door to the bedroom swinging open; the lights hadn't been turned on there, either, and darkness engulfed him as he walked into the room behind Hannibal. Will's heart leaped in his chest, his pulse racing as he wondered just what unrevealed secrets lay in the darkness.
