Chapter 21: Escape

"what is it?" Peter asked as he stood up.

"He's here", Sylar said.

"What will we do?" Peter asked, reaching for Sylar's arm.

Sylar sighed and wrapped his arm around Peter.

"We'll kill him", he said.

"..I don't think I'll be able to kill anyone", Peter said.

"I know, babe. I will", Sylar said and kissed Peter's forehead before he walked out of the room and towards the front door.

Peter followed him.

Sylar looked around. Noah was nowhere.

"You should keep more eye on your..pet", he heard Noah say, and when he turned around he saw Noah pointing a gun to Peter's head.

Sylar knew Peter could heal, but he couldn't help himself from shouting: "Don't you dare hurt him!"

Noah chuckled. Then he looked down to Peter. "Peter Petrelli?" he asked in disbelief.

"Noah, I saved your daughter..please..", Peter mumbled.

"Why are you with this psycopath?" Noah asked.

"He..I love him", Peter said.

Sylar smiled at Peter.

"No one can love that monster", Noah said.

"No! I do. I love him! And he's not a monster!" Peter yelled and released himself from Noah's grip.

"Now you leave or I'm gonna have to hurt you", Peter said.

Sylar smiled. Peter was taking all the control. It was kind of sexy.

"You'll control him from now on?" Noah asked.

"I will. I'll make sure he behaves", Peter said, telling the truth. There would be none of killing from now on.

"Fine", Noah nodded and calmly left the house.

Peter sighed of relief and hugged Sylar.

Sylar kissed Peter's hair.

"You did well, love", he said.

"So did you", Peter murmured.

"Peter..can I ask you something?" he murmured.

"Hmm?" Peter asked, looking at Sylar.

"Would you..you know..want to..you know..", Sylar didn't know how to ask.

"What is it?" Peter asked, sounding worried.

"Would you like to..maybe, I don't know..marry me?" Sylar asked, looking away.

"Marry you?" Peter asked.

"Yeah..", Sylar nodded.

"Well..of course, you goof", Peter grinned and kissed Sylar.
