Summary: Neal on the sidelines, temporarily.
Neal watches Peter and El dancing.
Peter’s footwork is sure and smooth; far more graceful than most people might expect. Of course, most people don’t know Peter the way Neal does, including his ability to be both strong and gentle at just the right times. Only a chosen few will ever know exactly how flexible Peter can be when necessary.
Neal wishes he could cut in and take Peter out on the floor himself, but Peter isn’t quite that flexible. Not in public. Not yet. Probably not ever.
For now, Neal will watch and smile.
Peter is worth waiting for.
