Something cute, and something not to cute. Both featuring Hannibal’s bodyguard, Bomilkar. 

First, saying good-bye to one of his daughters before the march to Italy (though he doesn’t know yet that it’ll be Italy); second, Bomilkar’s first week as Hannibal’s guard. Yup, it was a bad week for a bodyguard… 

Bomilkar is my invention, and is one of the main characters in “Darkness over Cannae”. http://www.facebook.com/DarknessOverCannae
