Torchwood/Heroes: Just Like The Wind VIII [Ianto/Peter]  
Title: Just Like The Wind
Fandom: Torchwood / Heroes.
Rating(s): R-Rated.
Pairing(s): Ianto Jones/ Peter Petrelli.
Warning(s): Angst; Attempted Suicide.
Summary: After the near cataclysmic events in New York, Peter Petrelli is taken to Cardiff to lie low and recuperate. When he crosses paths with the mysterious Ianto Jones, however, he soon finds recovery the furthest thing from his mind as the Welshman inadvertently leads him to Torchwood and the secrets within.

Peter rubbed at his eyes, wincing at the headache that assaulted him as he let himself into the hotel room he currently shared with Nathan. Even the sound of the door clicking softly shut pounded against his ears, tearing a small groan from his throat as he stumbled heavily into the room.
“Peter!” Nathan’s voice rang out loud and splitting. Peter grimaced at the shout and was about to ask his brother to tone it down a notch or two when suddenly he found himself enveloped in the tightest of hugs; Nathan cradling him as close as it was physically possible to be.
“Oh god, Pete.” Nathan breathed into his hair and Peter got a sense of great relief, or a long wait finally come to an end. Peter brought his arms up to hold at his brother’s waist just as Nathan pulled back, cupping his face in his hands.
“Where have you been?” Nathan asked, searching his face for the answer. Peter frowned at the worry he saw written across Nathan’s features.
“What? I’ve… I was just at the café-,” Nathan’s face darkened suddenly and Peter swallowed back the rest of his words.
“You’ve been missing for the last three days, Peter.”
“I- what!?” Peter gaped. “Don’t be ridiculous, Nathan. I’ve only been away a couple hours at the most.”
Nathan stepped back, folding his arms across his chest. Peter sighed, rubbing a hand over his face. Nathan’s aggravated worry wasn’t doing anything for his sore head.
“I was at the café,” he repeated, “but I… I ended up in this place called Torchwood. They, um, they wanted to keep me.”
“Keep you?” Nathan asked, raising an eyebrow.
Peter visibly cringed. “I- well I nearly went nuclear again. They stopped me but thought I was too dangerous to be let loose. I’d only ment to use my invisibility but I ended up… well I’m not quite sure where I ended up…” He drifted off, peering up at Nathan through his bangs.
“That was three days ago.” Nathan said, stepping away and seating himself on the nearby sofa. Peter followed him on suddenly shaky legs.
“Since then I’ve been contacted by Torchwood.” Nathan added and Peter’s eyes grew wide at the comment. Nathan nodded sombrely. “They’ve been trying to track you down since you disappeared. I think they’re somewhat annoyed that you evaded their attempt to hold you.”
Peter took a deep breath. “I must have used… Nathan, Hiro’s power is to- he can stop time, even travel through it. I must’ve absorbed that from him.”
“You didn’t consciously mean to use it?” Nathan asked.
Peter shook his head. “I was thinking that I needed to get out of there, that I couldn’t let them capture me.”
Nathan looked thoughtful for a moment before he schooled his expression. Peter tried to hide a sudden yawn behind his hand.
“You should get some rest. We don’t know how using this power may have drained you.”
“I’m alright. Just a bit of a headache.” Peter replied, watching as Nathan stood and walked over towards the phone. He picked up the receiver, pausing to look his brother before he dialled.
“I need to call Torchwood. Let them know I’ve got you.”
Peter stood, hurrying over. “You can’t, Nathan.”
“I’m taking you home, Peter. They agreed to that much.”
“But I’m still a danger to New York.” Peter protested, his apprehension palpable.
“You’re a danger here.” Nathan replied. “If you’d stopped using your powers like I’d told you to, you wouldn’t be in this situation.”
“I can’t just stop using them, Nathan. Most of them work on an unconscious level, I don’t even know I’m doing it.”
“All the more reason to get you out of Britain before the natives decide you’re too much of a threat to even be sent home.”
“I could easily get away.” Peter said, folding his arms stubbornly.
Nathan slammed the receiver down, spinning round to grab at his brother’s shoulders. “Not with a bullet through the head, you wouldn’t!” Nathan hissed. “Not if you explode and kill the whole country, you wouldn’t. Not if you’re dead, Peter.”
“I can come back,” Peter gasped, though his words held no conviction. He reached up to hold at Nathan’s shirtsleeves, his fingers grasping tightly at the material. Nathan’s face went impassive but Peter could still see the flashes of hurt darkening Nathan’s eyes.
“I’m sorry.” He whispered and Nathan drew him close, wrapping his arms tightly about his brother.
“You mean the world to me, Peter.” Nathan whispered. “You’re my brother and I’d die for you,” He pulled away slightly, pressing a kiss to Peter’s forehead. “But before that I’d do anything I could to save you.”
“I know,” Peter whispered. “I’d do the same for you, Nathan.”
Peter looked up, his eyes wide and guilt-ridden as they met Nathan’s.
“Then I’m taking you home.” Nathan said.
Peter nodded, agreeing as he leant back into his brother’s embrace.

Nathan held the phone out to his brother, watching as he took it with slightly trembling fingers. Peter looked up with questioning eyes and Nathan nodded. He’d called Torchwood, explaining to the Captain Harkness who ran it, that Peter had been found and that they would be on the afternoon flight out of Cardiff as of the next day.
“Hello?” Peter called as he pressed the receiver to his ear. Both Nathan and Jack Harkness had agreed to let Peter and Ianto speak one last time, reassured by the fact that they’d soon be an ocean apart from one another.
“Hello?” Came the answering call and Peter found a slight smile tugging at his lips. At first he’d been resentful of the mollycoddling both Nathan and Jack were displaying on behalf of Ianto and himself, as if they were two small children incapable of looking out for themselves. But just hearing Ianto’s voice over the phone pushed all his offence aside.
“Hey, Ianto? It’s Peter. Peter Petrelli.” He said, scuffing his shoe into the carpet in wait of a reply.
There was a pause on the line before, “Are you alright?”
Peter turned away from his brother, sighing slightly. “Yeah. I’m okay.”
“That’s… that’s good.” Ianto said.
Peter bit at his lip. “Listen, um. I was wondering if it’s possible to see you? Before I leave?”
“Yes.” Ianto’s reply came almost immediately. “Um, yes. I’d like that.”
“Yeah?” Peter smiled wider, feeling like a kid at Christmas as an unexpected happiness surged within him.
“Yes.” Ianto repeated, and Peter swore he could hear the smile in the Welshman’s voice.

They're so cute. I get the impressing that they're like 13 or something, and Peter was calling to ask Ianto to the school dance.

Can we make Nathan and Cap'n Jack into Mommy and Daddy? :D

::grin:: I was thinking that when doing my read over actually! It's why I added that little sentence about 'mollycoddling', heh.

Nathan and Jack are totally playing Mommy and Daddy, whether they know it or not!

Thanks for reading!

You made me grin like a mad person! :D Peter/Ianto are just so damn cute. And, btw, Nathan/Peter? You really are trying to get every 'ship ever in this fic, aren't ya? Not that I'm complaining or anything. XD Brilliant chapter as always, I'm still loving this! I hope my writer's block buggers off soon so we can really get to work on the best fic of all time. *squishes*

Thankies, babes! I'm still having a blast with this (but completely missing my dose of Unlikely Encounter! ::prod::), who knew Ianto/Peter could be the most adorable thing since like forever? And you know, it's all completely your fault! :D

I hope your writers block buggers off too :( or at least your exams finally finish! After that I'm sure you'll have all the time to be inspired.

Okay doing this out of order I have read 7 and a comment will follow shortly but I was going through my flist and saw a new part so I had to read it...

Love this, the relationship with Nathan is on the money. I'd completely forgotten Hiro could bend time, I was thinking like team Torchwood "how the hell has Peter gotton the Doctor's power" *headdesk*

Oh you meanie splitting the boys like that *sigh* the phone conversation just tugged at my heart strings, these two were just born to be together there like angst twins...

More soon I hope

Campaspe: Heroes \\ Petercs_whitewolf on May 29th, 2007 10:05 pm (UTC)
::giggles:: Oh bless you! Though that would have been a great twist, if Peter had met the Doctor somehow. Think he could absorb a Time Lord's powers? Hrmm... now there's an idea!

Angst twins!? I'm so totally referring to them like that from now on. It's adorable but completely on spot for them. I'm glad that phone convo got to you. I didn't want to overdo it but I tried to make it a little poignant a moment between them.

Campaspe: Heroes \\ Sylar flarecs_whitewolf on May 30th, 2007 07:06 am (UTC)
Haha! It's so true though. Is it bad that I see both of them like that? I mean they're both- what? early/mid twenties or something (at least in my head!)? Complete teenage boys still!

Soso happy you're still enjoying! I'm not sure how I feel about being likened to a dealer XD guess it's not a bad thing if you keep coming back for more, heh.

Campaspe: House MD \\ Lollypop Mancs_whitewolf on May 30th, 2007 05:51 pm (UTC)
Thanks! It was completely unintentional to have the boys come across as so... boyish! heh. But, it is rather adorable and I kind of like them 'rebelling' almost at the parental authority.

I'm trying for a chapter tonight, so look out for that!

Awww...your series is so freaking adorable. I'm hoping there's some snogging involved...They're going to be so emo. *tear* But I love them emoing about each other.
