She was in the gym, standing at the shooting area. There were numerous arrows in the target already. Grabbing a few more she took aim and let the next one fly, a second later it landed in the target with a heavy thud. Sweat dripped down the side of her face as she kept shooting.

Setting the bow down she took her shirt off, wearing a bitchbeater beneath it, half damp with sweat already. Grabbing her bow up once more she kept going. Her arm was beginning to burn but she tried to ignore it. When she'd gotten up to come down here for this he still wasn't home from hunting or whatever it was he was out doing right now.

Her hair pulled back, standing there with her bow, one of his undershirts and boyshorts she could only imagine how ridiculous she looked. Glancing at the clock on the wall she clenched her jaw, wishing now she'd gone out with him tonight. Worry swept over her and she hoped he was okay. Mentally she slapped herself. There were times he didn't come home til well into the morning. It was only a little after five now.

Trying to keep her mind off of it she kept shooting. Her arrows not quite hitting the target now and she knew why, her head wasn't as straight as it had been moments ago.

When he finally stumbled home he was a mess. Drunk, beaten and bloody. After running into Alan the other day Hannibal started thinking about her a lot. About the life they had and the friends he left behind. Then he went hunting and on an all night drinking binge.

His gun was thrown to the floor, his boots tugged off and Hannibal hit the floor. He was pretty sure he had gotten stabbed in the leg, maybe his back but right now he didn't care.

Note to self. Drinking and vampire hunting are never a good thing to do in the same night. Unless the drinking is done after the hunting. Out cold he lay in a heap in the middle of the floor, blood seeping from his wounds mixing with the ash and grime that covered his tattered body.

She heard a nose that startled her. Setting the bow down she grabbed the gun he left for her and went out to see what it was. Fear crept through her, she hoped it was something she could handle on her own. Getting to the living room she saw him and her jaw clenched. Silently she went over to him and started to lift/drag him to the couch. It took a while but she got him there and onto it. Her muscles were screaming at her for it.

Then she went to the bathroom, grabbed some towels, wash cloths and a basin of hot water. Gently she wiped at the dirt and dried blood. She smelled the booze on him and tears pricked her eyes. Quickly she tended to his wounds, sewing him up where he needed it and bandaging the others. Then she went upstairs the shower. Things hadn't been the same between them since his friend the other night, and she didn't say anything about it.

But now the drinking was back and she felt completely deflated. Tears leaked down her cheeks as she stood beneath the spray.

Hours later he woke up. Sober and in a lot of pain. His head hurt, pounded. But his body felt like he had been hit with a freight train. Looking down he saw that his body was clean and the tattered cuts sewn shut. Sitting up he held his head in his hands and called out for her. God he really fucked up this time.

"Abi? Abi...baby...you here?"

She heard him, long ago she'd stopped crying. She'd stayed in the shower long past the water turning cold. Now she was in the kitchen, sipping a cup of coffee. Or at least cupping a cold of what used to be hot coffee in her hands on the table. Hearing him she looked up.

"In here."

Getting up she poured the cold coffee out and washed the mug.

He tried to stand but it hurt. Slumping back down on the coach he groaned in pain.

"You think you could come out here princess?"

She took a deep breath and walked out, carrying some pain killers and some water. Giving him a smile she sat down beside him, leaning in she checked his bandages to make sure they weren't bleeding through.

"How are you feeling?"

Turning on the couch he faced her.

"I am sorry Abi."

She furrowed her brows when she looked up at him.

"For what?"

She didn't want to make a big deal about it, didn't want him to know it bothered her like it had.

"You know what."

He hung his head in his hands. He felt so bad that he had let her down.

"Sometimes it just hard."

"Maybe.."

She drew her legs up and slipped her aarms around her knees.

"Maybe it's harder because I'm here, like you feel like you're replacing her.. betraying her."

He shook his head.

"It's not just her I lost. I lost my son too. Turned my back on my friends. I lost everything. Everyday I wake up and I look around and I try to tell myself that they are still here, just a different part of the world now...but it's hard. Seeing Alan just reminded me of all the other things I lost."

"I've lost a lot too, including myself."

Her jaw clenched to keep her from crying.

"I don't know where I fit in anymore, or that I ever have at all to begin with. I'm tired of feeling empty and every day I feel like more of me disappears. I can't imagine how you feel to of lost a wife and a son. Even if it means me never have met you, I wish you still had them."

If he could have his family back, she'd go back to being a vampire. Just to see him happy once.

"There is no going back. This is how things are. Just don't walk away from me because I fuck up, because I don't know how to do this." Tears stung his eyes making them look almost green. "I am trying Abi. I am sorry I fucked up already."

"I'm not going anywhere Hannibal. Because when you're here, I don't feel like a monster."

A tear leaked down her cheek and she quickly brushed it away.

"But you've got to start letting me in more than half way."

"I am letting you in as much as I can. When I let you get close I see that sad look in your eyes when it doesn't go further. Or when I pull back. I don't want to hurt you."

She refrained from saying that did hurt her, made her feel inadequate. She was grateful for everything he's done for her, if he couldn't return what she felt she'd deal with it, but she'd be okay.

"Maybe we should cool things down for a while, until we're both ready."

She didn't know what else to say, this kind of thing was a lost concept on her.

"I want you to help me do something."

Hannibal knew he had to move on. This was killing him and until he claimed his life as his own once more, it would keep killing him. Steal bits and peices until he was gone.

"I found a house, in the city, I want to move. I want to box up this life and leave this house behind. I need to start over and I need your help."

"Just tell me when and what to pack and I'll do it."

She actually had some news of her own.

"I actually have something to tell you too."

That made him a little worried. Glancing over at her he gave a half assed smirk.

"What's this news of yours?"

He wasn't really sure what she meant by that. So he asked. "What do you need help with princess?"

"Guide me."

She didn't think she could do it on her own, she'd need his help. Her hands cupped his cheeks and she kissed him soundly as she sunk down on him a little. It made her moan against his lips.

"That's a good start baby." Gripping her hips Hannibal slowly slid her down his shaft. "Just go slow."

She licked her lips and kissed him hungrily as he begas to fill her. It didn't hurt, actually he seemed to slide in as if it was where he belonged and she didn't question it.

Looking up at him she nodded and brought her arm around him, pulling him closer and kissed him.

"I'm better than okay Hannibal."
