Heroes: Paire Challenge #3


Claire loved to do it when he absolutely couldn’t outwardly react. At one of Nathan’s political functions, or at Sunday morning brunch, with the conversation stilted like family could be.

Sometimes she’d whisper; sometimes she’d scream. See if he’d hear; see if he’d wince. Look at him, or anything but.

It had taken a while to know just how loud to think, to sneak past his barriers and murmur into Peter’s mind.

“I want you,” she’d say. Or “I’m going commando right now.” That got a great reaction.

But her favorite was simply, “I love you.”

God bless Matt Parkman.
