Summary: Questions asked and promises made.
“You’ve done this before,” Peter comments, just casually enough for Neal to know he’s serious.
Neal’s tempted to go with his best glib smile. He wants to put off any uncomfortable thoughts at least for tonight, but he can’t. If he wants this, he has to be honest.
“Yeah. Me, Kate, Mozzie,” he says softly. “It was great. And then...it wasn’t.”
Peter is watching him.
“This is different. I promise.” For once in his life, it’s not a lie.
Neal holds his breath until Peter smiles, making Neal feel both wanted and trusted.
“Let’s not keep a lady waiting.”
