but wait dere's moar  


"The Petrelli woman told me he was four hundred years old."

They'd been at this an hour. Hands folded around each other, just talking. Trying to hash out what had happened in the weeks they'd been inexplicably, ridiculously far apart. The meat of it had sunk in and rolled away already, and now they were into the details. It was astonishing to them both how easily they were able to accept such extremes now. A killer's return, a cross-country flight on no airplane but a man's back, a death and a resurrection-- these were not things they would have ever conceived of in their former lives.

Perhaps it only made sense because they had each other. They were each other's shock absorbers. Nothing in the world could destroy them, because with each shot they took, they were able to fall backward in to each other's arms. They made the insane sane for each other.

It was thus that Matt was able to mention Adam Monroe's alleged age and Mohinder's only response was a murmured "Incredible."

Matt cracked a smile. "I mean, what would you do for four hundred years?" he said. "It's like some sort of vampire movie."

"Only we're the vampires," Mohinder mused, and the comment brought a surprised "How do you figure?" from Matt.

Mohinder shook his head, laughing softly. "You don't want to know. It involves drawing blood."

Matt gave a shiver. "Ugh. You're right." They smiled at each other. Matt's fear of needles had been a joke ever since that first night at Molly's bedside. Matt had given a nearly imperceptible jump when the needle had pierced her skin, which Mohinder had picked up on and teased him about much later, after their relationship had deepened.

"So what would you do," Mohinder said, his voice like a sigh, "with an eternity to live?"

"Depends," Matt shrugged.

"Oh? On what?"

"On if I had to spend it alone."

The words were glowing in the air like a neon sign for a full minute after they were spoken, Matt and Mohinder both dumbstruck by their significance.

Jerky clumsy blushing Matt emerged from behind the momentary Casanova. "Um. I didn't. Necessarily mean, that is..." Of course, now he had an armful of Mohinder and didn't quite know what to do with it. He was torn between kiss now, kiss later, or kiss forever.

"You didn't?" Disappointed pouting lips. Kiss now it was, a long deep taste of an irresistible man he'd happily spend forever with, and they were taking long breaths and feeling the rightness of it and moving ever closer to each other and with each other. It was music and it was love and promises of forever.

"Well, maybe I did and didn't know it," Matt finally said. "But I know at least one thing I'd like to spend forever doing."

"I'd like to see you last forever," commented Mohinder as they strolled down the hallway.

As Matt started to object, the closing bedroom door sheltered his protests from the world.
