Moonraker


Where are you? Why do you hide?

Where is that moonlight trail that leads to your side?

God, she missed him. Why did he have to go? Why did he leave them? Why did he leave her? She knew, of course, but knowing didn't make it any easier. Peter told her that her father was looking for them, and he was going to try and lead him on a wild-goose chase cross country. She had understood at the time.

Just like the Moonraker goes in search of his dream of gold

I search for love; for someone to have and hold

But it didn't fly now. Because she knew his real reason. And she was sure that with the help of Matt, Ando and Hiro, she would find him.

I've seen your smile in a thousand dreams

Felt your touch, and it always seems

You love me

Isaac had painted it only three days ago. It was a cluster of comic book-like paintings that showed how NYC went nuclear. How all of them ran from Peter, as he stood alone with Nathan. How the others had to drag Claire away from the love of her life, screaming and crying the whole way. Then, Peter appeared to split at the seams, and then came the explosion.

You love me

Where are you? When will me meet?

Take my unfinished life and make it complete

She couldn't let him try to go off and die because he thought he was saving them all. It was killing her. And she would find him. With his absorption of Hiro's power, wherever and whenever he was, she would find him.

Just like the Moonraker knows his dream will come true someday

I know that you are only a kiss away

She understood why he left. He was trying to protect them all. He was trying to protect her. Because he loved her. He loved her too much to be selfish enough to stay with her until he died.

I've seen your smile in a thousand dreams

Felt your touch, and it always seems

You love me

And she loved him for it. And she was too determined to be with him to let a changeable future say who she could and couldn't love. I'm coming for you, Peter. I'm coming.

You love me
