"Peter," Neal says carefully, "is going to be fine."

It takes a moment to register, then washes over her like ice. "Oh God," she whispers, then pushes the panic down before it can seize her. "Where?"

When she gets to the hospital, Neal looks young, lost, vulnerable, alone. Then he sees her, and -- click -- shifts over to calm, controlled confidence. "El," he greets her with a conman's easy smile.

He tells her what happened, dispassionate; he cares too deeply for Peter to let it show.El hears what he doesn't say, too.

"Neal." She wants to hug him. "Thank you."
