“What’s wrong?” Will asked.
“I got asked to go to the Homecoming dance,” Abigail. “And I don’t know what to do.”
The facts were these: Abigail Hobbs grew up as an only child in Minnesota to a pair of loving parents, who taught her the basics of hunting and recycling. After the untimely death of Abigail’s family, she was sent to live with her two guardians—the well-respected psychologist Dr. Hannibal Lecter and the highly empathic FBI profiler Will Graham. The courts knew it was much more than a hunch that this group would somehow form a family, even though Will had shot Abigail’s father to death, Hannibal had indirectly incited Mr. Hobbs to murder his wife and try to kill Abigail thus prompting Will to his abovementioned action, and Abigail has some deep emotional issues due to all of the above. But these three were trying their best to make their intensely unconventional family unit work.
