Fandoms: Hannibal (TV)
02 Feb 2022
Hannibal is out shopping when the small boy runs up to him and bites him on the hand.
It is not a playful act. The child bites hard, and then he grinds his teeth in and holds on.
There is for Hannibal a moment of outrage, in which he considers striking the child to knock him away. Hannibal’s face curls, for just a microsecond, into a snarl, and astonishingly he realizes that the boy, who is looking up at him with fearsome defiance, his jaws still locked around the side of his hand, has not missed this.
Hannibal sets his face to communicate a shocked but stoic response to the assault, and this is what his father sees, when perhaps three seconds later he crouches next to the boy to coax him into loosening his hold.
AKA, the one where Will is the single father of a troubled little boy, and Hannibal is enchanted by them both.
