Neal and Peter are not mine!


Peter parked in front of June's, "Welcome home, buddy. Want me to walk you up?"

Neal shook his head, "I'm tired, I think...I think I'll just go up and sleep."

Peter shot an uneasy glance at his partner, "Are you sure you're okay?"

"Yeah, Peter, like I said, I'm tired, don't worry." Neal got out of the car, "I'll see you in the morning."


After exchanging a few words with June, Neal trudged up the stairs, wishing he had someone waiting for him at the top of the stairs. He walked into his dark apartment and turned on the light, jumping when he noticed the figure sitting on his couch.

"Jamie? Am I hallucinating? Because that would suck, I just got out of the hospital..."

"No, Neal, you aren't hallucinating, I'm really here."

"Why?" He asked, tears in his eyes.

She stood and walked toward him, "I decided to fight for you. I'm not going to let one conman's stupid decision cause me to lose the man I love."

Neal shook his head, "I'm an idoit Jamie, I never realized how much-"

"Neal, I forgave you this morning," she interrupted, "I need you Neal. I need you in my life."

He looked up at Jamie, "You don't know how much I need you, Jaims, you're the normalcy in my life. I'll go crazy without that little bit of normal."

She sighed and took his hand, "I love you."

"I love you too."


They ordered pizza and sat on the floor of the kitchen, catching up.

"So how did you save me?"

"Oh, it was my best work yet."

"I'm waiting, Mr. Caffrey, you just broke up with me, then got back together with me, you have a lot of explaining to do."

Neal smiled and shook his head, "Well..."

Peter leaned back in his chair, "Indulge me."

"Peter, do you have access to the NASA heat map of the city?"

"Uh, probably, why?"

"I need you to access it right now."

Peter nodded slowly, "Jones! Can you get me the NASA heat map of the city up?"

Jones nodded, and in minutes, the map was up on Peter's monitor, "Okay Neal what am I looking for?"

Neal stood up and pointed at the screen, "Look over near the piers...yes...see that hot spot? What is it?"

Peter studied the screen, "That's a warehouse near...pier 49!"

"Banks had a scrambler correct?"

"Yes..."

"Scramblers make a lot of heat, Peter."

"Neal, you are absolutely right. Looks like we just found Jamie."

"Look at you! Being all resourceful to save me!"

Neal smiled lovingly at his girlfriend, "Your welcome, but Jamie, you have an explanation also..."

Jamie sighed, and ran a hand through her hair, "Neal, I was pregnant."

"Yes, yes, that I know."

"Really, Neal, I had no idea, I'm guess it was conceived on your birthday, but...I didn't have a clue that I was pregnant...until, well until I wasn't."

"Did it...was it...are you sure you miscarried?"

Jamie nodded grimly, "I had a feeling, when I began to bleed, uh, heavier than normal, but and then the doctors checked me out and they confirmed it. I was, but now I'm not, pregnant."

"Oh Jamie. I...I...I don't know what to..."

"Shhh, Neal, I'm fine. Really, I don't know. Maybe I'm still in shock, maybe because I didn't know I was pregnant, I'm not that effected, maybe..."

"Maybe you're just doing really well."

"Or maybe, somewhere in my subconscious I'm freaking out."

Neal slide closer to Jamie, "Come here."

She nodded slowly, and curled into the hug, "Well get through this together, all right? I'm here, you're here, we're safe, and together, we can cope together, I promise."

Jamie nodded again, "Neal, I'm glad I met you."

"I'm glad I met you, too."
