The only real issue with the kitchen, as it stands, is the tiny window it's been granted. To keep the room secretive and private with respect to the outdoors, there's just a little one along the top wall - more reminiscent of an unfinished basement than a kitchen. The modern light fixtures, however, more than make up for the lack of sun.

Hannibal pauses, fingers on the kettle's arched handle. His eyebrows lift and his lips press together so as not to make a sound of disbelief. He looks, in a word, amused. "No," he says simply. But, not to lose his endless chatter: "Simply raised in a Lithuanian Catholic household. I've been inside countless churches." Which is true, although most of the ones he's been in, he was inside without family members. With their grand ceilings and their forbidding doors, their talk of values while hiding depravity, Hannibal adores looking at churches. He has a folder, at home, of photos of church collapses, the ancient bricks or cheap wooden paneling splintered and ruined.

"Do your parents bring you to church?" The heater is flicked on, the kettle filled.
