He’s been waking up to the same sight for the last few months but it still feels fresh.
Hannibal is lying there, naked, with his back turned to Will so that all he can see is his shoulder and hair falling down like a waterfall of thousand shades. It’s almost impossible how quickly Lecter’s hair grow. The man insisted on taking care of Will, cutting his hair every month or so, but he did not ask the same of his partner and, at some point, he started braiding it. Will cannot deny how much he loves Hannibal with long hair.
He blushes as he thinks of all the times he was pulling on or running his hands through it. From his current position, Hannibal looks almost like a woman. It’s only with more details revealed that the whole picture unravels, presenting an image of a handsome man in his fifties. There are the sideburns, which, strangely, Will finds endearing despite them being somewhat old-fashioned. Then, there are broad shoulders, which, after pulling on the sheet, turn out to be the most prominent part of Lecter that Will can see.
Hannibal’s skin is fairly smooth, with beauty moles, wrinkles and plenty of scars. From Will’s viewpoint, the most noticeable one is the huge branding mark he got indirectly from Mason’s hands. There are also some, which Will never asked about – small, narrow, minor cuts.
Will sighs and stretches his hand. He doesn’t touch Hannibal; he doesn’t want to wake him up. The body inches away emits great warmth and the skin to skin contact is not necessary. At this point, Will knows the texture by heart and has the map of Hannibal’s body memorised.
“Most people complain about having to wake up.”
Lecter’s voice reaches him in a slightly deformed way. Still, he can make out every word.
“I have a feeling you’re about to say that we’re not most people.” Will teases and finally has the opportunity to place his hand on Lecter’s shoulder without waking the man up in the process. “There was a time when I hated sleeping.” Will confesses while caressing his lover’s skin.
“What about now?”
“Sleeping feels like wasting our time. But I cherish the knowledge that you share the bed with me.”
“Does it make you feel safe?”
“It makes me…” Will ponders while tracing paths with his fingers on Hannibal’s back. The skin there is hot, almost burning Will’s fingertips. The touch is electric, causing Hannibal goose bumps and waking his whole body even more. “You make me…”
Will buries his face into Hannibal’s spine. The safe nook between the shoulder blades is the only place Graham will needs as a shelter. He doesn’t need to hide; not from the man in front of him or anyone else for that matter, but the sole awareness that there is a safe space waiting for him anytime makes him calm.
He feels the body next to him move and in no time, Hannibal lies face to face with Will.
I swear I’ve forgotten all about you and your
voice doesn’t ring in my ears at 4am in the
morning. I swear I’m fine and your name
doesn’t send shivers down my spine. I don’t
wake up with you on my mind anymore and
I don’t crave to listen to you breathe before
I sleep. I swear my heart doesn’t ache when
I see your face, and I can finally look at the
starry sky without remembering how you
said “It doesn’t matter if we’re far we’ll always
be under the same moon”. I have forgotten
how your voice trembled when you told me
you loved me and I have forgotten how it was
all a lie. I can finally look you in the face and
tell you that I loved you, my oh my I loved you..
but you don’t mean a thing to me anymore.

I will report back and let you know if it’s any good. But I am excited.
