    Summary

    “You never let me cook for you,” Will said, taking Hannibal’s offered glass of bourbon. “You never let me do anything, in fact. Unless it’s taking out the trash or fixing the dishwasher.”

    Hannibal smiled and took his seat by the fire. “Seems we’ve fallen into a routine.”

    Summary

    Two years after the fall, Will and Hannibal settle down in Dordogne, France, but not everything is perfect. Hannibal hates that Will has gone vegan, and Will isn't allowed to have a dog—and those are the least of their problems.

    (Set two years after We Belong Dead.)

    Summary

    Chiyoh never announces her visits, preferring to show up like a bad cold. She never stays longer than a day or two, during which she and Will stare each other down. Will doesn’t say it out loud, because that would be admitting his small, secret fear of her, but he always wonders if she’s planning to push him off the porch, or out the window, or into the Baccara roses.

    It’s a dark night, but not stormy, so Will assumes she neglected to check the forecast. Chiyoh’s talent for arriving just before dinner holds true, though, and Hannibal has gained an appreciation for leftovers in the last few years, which means there will be plenty of trout beurre blanc for all of them.

    Sometimes, she greets them with a few rabbits or a duck or two slung over her shoulder. Chiyoh, breaking tradition, presents Hannibal with a live cat.

    Will does not like cats.

    ***

    Will finds a dog; a cat finds Hannibal; around and between, they find a quiet life together.

    Summary

    "My love," he says, during another quiet evening between autumn and winter, where the air is humid and dark, and the sun still takes far too long to reach the horizon, and there are daffodils and lilies growing in the same place around a pond. "Who taught you how to play Chess?"

    Will doesn't meet his eyes, entranced by the splay of black and white on the table in front of him. He is an aggressive player, Hannibal finds, and will open his flanks wide in the hopes of distracting his opponent from the lance aimed for their heart, as the feathers and pretty lures he makes hide the sharp hook from the fish. So, too, was Hannibal speared while he spent his time admiring the frills and edges of Will's beautiful mind.
