/smiles/ If we do, we’ll bring you along. If you want to go. We’d love to have you along.

/ the boy bites on his lip, before looking back down — really, it’s hard for him to swallow. /

No — that’s okay. You should just take your family, sir.

/tilts his head, confused and concerned/ /he wants to tell Peter that as far as he’s concerned, he is family, but he doesn’t know how the boy will react to that/ /the boy’s already got a man he calls father, after all, and he doesn’t want to do anything that might upset the delicate balance of that relationship/

We wouldn’t want to go without you, though.

/now he just feels — guilty. And silly. For trespassing on Arthur’s family — on his new family, one that didn’t include him. It was so obvious from the last time they had spoken that Arthur didn’t want Peter as a family member, or anything like that./

It’s okay! I like reading about them in books.

/he’s not even sure what he’s trying to say/ /Peter looks a bit down, so he’s just trying to make him forget whatever malicious words were spoken earlier/

Have you ever seen one up close?

No —

I’ve only seen them in the books. They look really big, though! Like… huge. Bigger than buildings!

/he holds up his hands to show how big, exactly. /

They are huge. The babies are about that big, actually. There’s a park in a jungle in Thailand where a herd of elephants live. You can visit them. I’ve been there. You can watch them go about their day, feed them fresh fruit, give them baths in the river…it’s quite amazing, really.

In Thailand?

/ — Peter thinks about it, and he thinks about where Thailand is. It’s very far away, really, and there’s not a big chance that he’ll be able to go there. Still — it sounds so great. /

…that sounds nice, sir.

It is. It’s fantastic. If you want, maybe we can go together one day.

Together?

/ he tenses up, a little bit — thinking about what Arthur had said the last time he this version of Arthur had met. He remembers how Arthur has a family now, one that doesn’t include him. /

— that sounds nice! But you should go with — with your wife, and your baby.
