For such a tall boy, Tate shrinks down into himself like an expert. Hannibal watches Tate's eyes on the floor. He takes slow, measured steps towards him. As suggested, there's plenty of books to avoid as he goes.

"It's quite alright." Hannibal is within arm's reach of Tate again, standing in the middle of his painstakingly-organized living room. The only remainders of the argument are the ten or so reference books that litter the floor.

Hannibal's head ticks gently to one side. The weight of the moment lingers. He lets it pull his arm up, forward, lets it press his hand down onto Tate's shoulder with exacting care.

The pocket square is being offered to Tate with his other hand. "I am much more interested in whether or not you are alright, Tate. That was not a kind discussion I interrupted, regardless of how it ended." Hannibal's stare is relentlessly steady.
