Hannibal looked down at the notebook on his desk, frowning.

He had written down everything he could think of about Will and Everett, and the relationship that the two of them seemed to already have formed. the relationship that he was determined to rip apart.

Will didn't need that Englishman, he told himself, his inner voice almost a snarl. Will needed him. Will belonged to him, and always would. This other man was an interloper, someone who threatened the stability of what Hannibal was working to build with Will.

Well, if he was honest, what he was really building was a gilded cage to keep Will imprisoned in. He wanted Will to be dependent on him, not on anyone else.

Will was his. And he would remain so, no matter what happened.

If he had to, he would remove Everett Hobbs from this equation. He didn't know exactly how he would do it yet, but that seemed to be the only course of action that he could take.

He hadn't done much research into Hobbs' background, he thought, tapping his pen against his chin. He really should do so; he needed to know all about this man, to see if there were any weaknesses that he could exploit, anything that he could hold over the man's head if and when he needed that sort of leverage.

For some reason, the man looked familiar -- and not just because he was a cousin of the Hobbs family that he and Will had known in the States. There was something about those eyes that he couldn't get out of his head, something that made him feel as though he and Everett Hobbs had met before.

Whatever it was, he would find out, and he would discover some way of inserting a wedge between Hobbs and Will. He would pull them apart, and bring Will back to where he belonged.

With him. Only with him. No one else had a right to Will Graham's heart and soul.

Hannibal wrote a bit more in his notebook, questions that he wanted to find answers for on the internet. He didn't doubt that he would be able to track down more information; it was only a matter of time.

It would be interesting to unearth whatever it might be in this man's past that had made him so eager to take on the job of being Will's attorney. And it would also give him something to show Will, something that he might use to separate the two of them and make his prey vulnerable. Every little thing could be of use.

He wasn't going to let Everett Hobbs take Will away from him. He had chosen Will, and had worked hard to make the young man his. He wouldn't give Will up; he would simply change the equation until it worked in his favour.

Hobbs would discover that, Hannibal though with a grim smile. It would be a lesson he'd never forget.
