AN: Here it is! The grand finalee! I hope you all like it. Underwater is finished! I can barely believe it. Thanks to everyone for reviewing, you don't know how much I appericate it. Enjoy!
Nathan stood beside the bed. He could hear Mohinder setting up his equipment, but could not bring himself to tear his eyes away from the pale figure laying there. After everything that had happened, all the tears and all the pain, it was hard to believe that Peter was really there…alive.
"You don't have to hover," Peter commented, his voice strained from fatigue. "I'm not going anywhere."
"Yes I do," replied the older brother seriously. Peter sent him a tired smile before shutting his eyes again. Nathan sighed. It was so hard to see his brother in so much pain and not be able to do anything; it was an all too familiar feeling of helplessness that had been attacking him a lot lately.
Nathan still did not know the whole story, and Peter didn't either. But the memories were slowly returning to the younger man and Peter had great hope that it would soon return in full.
They had spent the previous day trying to work out a way for Mohinder to get there, while Peter hit Nathan with a torrent of questions. Nathan loved every minute of it. Peter sounded more like himself now then he had four months ago. Back then Peter acted like the weight of the world was on his shoulders. Even though he was so tired now he had his iconic energetic optimism back.
Nathan glanced at the auburn haired woman—who consequently, he had run into the day prior on a busy New York street. Peter would call that destiny. Nathan did not care what it was, now that he had Peter back it didn't matter.
Caitlyn seemed like a very decent girl, and Nathan was glad to see Peter happy again. It may have taken amnesia to help him get over Simone, but it did at least seem like his heart had moved on.
"Are we ready?" Mohinder asked, looking down into Peter's glazed eyes.
"Whenever you are," he replied. Nathan kneeled down beside the bed and took his brother's hand, squeezing it more for his sake than Peter's. Caitlyn was hovering protectively at the other side of the bed.
Mohinder went about his work in silence. It had been difficult getting the scientist there, and as Mohinder made clear they were risking a lot. But Nathan did not care. He had his brother back now and he would do everything in his power to keep him safe.
"All done," Mohinder said, beginning to clean up the equipment. "Now all you can do is wait."
"Thank you," Nathan said sincerely. The scientist nodded and hurried out the door, quickly getting back before they realized he was gone.
"I love you Nathan," Peter muttered tiredly as he slipped off into sleep.
"I love you too, man," replied the older, holding onto Peter's hand as if it was the only thing keeping him sane.
Caitlyn smiled at the two brothers, wondering how her own brother was doing. She squeezed Peter's shoulder affectionately.
The room was thick with hope and possibilities, and she knew that their story was far from being over.
