“Will, I need you to tell me what happened.”
Hannibal waits as patiently as the circumstances allow, but Will doesn’t speak. Will’s answer is cryptic, laid out for Hannibal in ugly clues. It’s etched into his skin, and pungent about the remaining shreds of clothing still clinging to him.
It's in the footprints etched in purple into his side, and the trail of grit and soil, leading from Hannibal’s car, through the house and now smudged into the bed Will is sitting on, barely held together. The answer is something monstrous, and Hannibal will pull it from him, eventually.
After the season two finale, Will & Abigail move to a cabin in the woods and try to put Hannibal behind them. It doesn't work quite as well as Will hopes.
It was easier to keep running, that’s what he told himself. Easier to compartmentalize, to focus on each second as it passed and not the bigger picture. If he thought too hard about that, or the future, or anything besides the present moment, he knew he wouldn’t come back from it.
But, god, he was exhausted.
