They were getting married.
It was one of those blissed out moments, but infinitely better than the one had in the Labyrinth after they'd proven that even while amnesiatic, they were still meant to be together. Unfortunately – but not really unfortunate for them – private engagement bliss would be set aside for a few hours when someone pounded on the door.
"Please don't say anything yet about that," Sarah requested softly, nodding to the box. She still hadn't gotten a chance to figure out just what she was supposed to do with it, but they could figure that out later. Together.
The door rattled again. "Don't break the door!" she called, getting up to shut the box and go open the door. Peter likely could have done so, but she didn't mind, at all. She was certain who was on the other side, knowing Nathan and Peter and their connection, and certain of who Nathan would make a beeline for anyhow.
She was wrong, so it seemed, as she only got "Hey, Nathan, nice of-" out before she was unceremoniously smothered by an enormous bear hug that lifted her off her feet with a startled shriek.
"Air, please!" That was what she intended to say, but it mostly came out in a muffle with the accompaniment of arm flailage as she was joyfully but slowly suffocated.
When Nathan had been hit by SHE SAID YES! SHE ACTUALLY SAID YES! NATE! I'M GETTING MARRIED! from Peter, for a moment, he thought he was hallucinating. Three seconds later, he had darted out the door so fast that use of his flight skills might well be suspected, just ran without saying a word to anyone, and covered the space between the upstairs and Peter in ridiculous time.
His baby brother was finally getting married. It wasn't often Nathan gave in to unrestrained glee - and really, there was no other word for it, short of giddy, and somehow glee felt slightly more masculine that giddy – but it was usually with Peter. This hit the top three list of those times, easily.
Eventually he released his soon-to-be sister-in-law, fortunately before resuscitation was required and a celebration turned into less-celebratory, and then he dived for Peter. There was something to be said for being indestructible in moments like this, the tackle encompassing both celebratory hug and wrestling all at once.
Watching the two with unrestrained joy and noticeable eye dampness, Sarah dug out her phone to summon Heidi and call Cathy, even as she made her way the her laptop to spread the news. Clearly, those two would be busy enough wrestling-celebrating that this way would be easier.
