Popping noises, people shouting, Peter dragging him to the pavement. Confusion becomes clarity in one brief painful second. It's not someone else Peter is looking at, frantic with shock. It's him. Neal tries to raise a hand to touch his chest where pain and warmth and something far more mortal dwell, but his body won't obey. His eyes flutter closed and all that remains is Peter's voice, calling to him in the darkness. In the black Mozzie's dancing girl figurine Lolana appears, beckoning him to paradise. He apologizes to her in his head. He can't leave. This is his home.
