She misses San Francisco, the salt air, the clouds, the hills. Genovia is beautiful, but so flat and so bright. Plains surrounded by mountains, not at all like home.
Nicholas doesn’t understand, she knows. He’s spent time all over the world, seen every possible landscape. He’s content anywhere. He can’t comprehend how much she misses walking up a hill every day. He listens to her stories, the longing clear in her voice, and he researches, shares with her little tidbits he learns about San Francisco, the gold rush and the bay and a history she never actually knew.
For their fifth anniversary, he takes her to San Francisco, and they don’t go as Queen and Prince Consort. They are simply Mia and Nicholas, a young couple on holiday, visiting family by the bay.
“I love you,” she whispers, standing on the beach and listening to the ocean, wrapped in his arms. “Thank you for this.”
He kisses her temple and murmurs, “Happy anniversary.”

There is a great deal about Neal Caffrey that Peter doesn’t know. Some of it he has guessed, some refused to even consider, and some he’d never suspect.
Neal Caffrey has never been connected to Bryce Larkin even though they have the same face. They went their separate ways for college, and only they know their names from before then. Neither of them graduated highschool, but there is no record of that anywhere, either.
Bryce is a superspy and Neal an ex-con, and they’ve kept track of each other. Whenever Bryce has to lay low, he visits his twin and they switch in and out for a few days. It’d be easy as breathing to slip the tracker, but that’s not the game.
And when Neal feels his brother’s death, he leaves New York. He’ll miss Peter and El and all the rest, and he doesn’t even let Mozzie know he’s going. Bryce kept weapons stashed all over the country and he made sure that Neal learned everything he did when it came to being dangerous.
Someone somewhere killed Neal’s brother, for good this time. And someone somewhere will pay.
