Sorry, dad, Neal thought, after telling Peter the “dirty cop” story.
It wasn’t fair or nice, any more than it had been fair or nice when he took off for New York. Instead of staying with the family who loved him, he’d set out to find a family he could love.
Miraculously, he’d gotten it with Mozzie and Kate only to have it taken away. Now he was on the verge of achieving something beautiful with Peter and Elizabeth, but Peter still had questions and Neal knew the kind of answers he needed to hear.
Even if they were lies.
