    Summary

    Now fully recovered, Hannibal and Will continue to hide out in Will’s cabin. As winter passes, they start to plan for their escape. But Hannibal is still waiting for Will to make his final choices, and is growing increasingly impatient.

    “No signs of damp,” Hannibal said. “But our future concerns me more. Decisions must be made about what to set aside for our journey. When do you foresee we will leave?”

    Will shrugged. “Is the decision mine?” he asked. “Why don’t you ask the forest when it will be done with us, like in your folktales.”

    Hannibal thought back to his autumn wanderings in the woods, when a slow recovery from illness had given rise to childhood recollections of forest games, ones both real and imagined. Will was correct, however - there was still a wait ahead of them. There was much to settle before they could leave the shelter of the trees.

    Summary

    Hannibal wakes up in Will's cabin, still in recovery after the fall and with little memory of what came after. They both wait - Will for Hannibal to be well enough to leave, and Hannibal for Will to make choices.

    The footsteps Hannibal heard from behind him were confident, unhurried. Sounds of clothing being removed and tools put neatly away accompanied them. Whistling too, low and musical.

    Will walked into the cabin, behind the sofa bed upon which Hannibal lay, and began filling a tin kettle at the sink. The scents of outdoors followed him - soft clay earth, brackish water, burning leaves.

    Hannibal remained still, waiting.

    The whistling stopped suddenly. He felt Will approach, cautious now, to lean over the back of the sofa. There was a long moment, filled only by the steady deep thrum of blood through his veins.

    “You're awake,” he heard Will say softly.

    Summary

    Post-fall, Hannibal and Will escape to Europe, wounded and hurting. Very quickly things turn bad, and Will seeks to hide them both away on a small island in the Mediterranean, to cut them off from the world and for them to be alone together. He needs to understand how he has changed Hannibal, and what that change means for Hannibal's behaviour. He also has to come to terms with their growing intimacy, both emotional and physical. But Hannibal finds it difficult to stay hidden away and when they meet others on the island, Hannibal tries to persuade him into killing them.

    Summary

    In which Will, faced with no other choice in a disturbing case, asks Hannibal for assistance:

    “...kill him…” The first utterance was muddled by the crackle of the fire behind them.

    “I want you to kill him.”
