Yes, I put pineapple on pizza. Sue me.
Peter Callahan Things in Atlantic City had gone as smoothly as Peter had hoped it would but when he had gotten the phone call that his club had been burned down, Peter's unusually perky mood turned sour. Wanting to be there for Sinead, Peter didn't hesitate to make the journey home as he knew Conor and Jackson would be good with Syd taking his place.
As he pulled into the driveway of his home, Peter didn't waste any time hopping out of the vehicle and striding towards the front door. Opening it, he had half expected all of his family to be home but when he found it was mostly empty, he was relieved that he could just focus on Sinny and Emmy for the time being. Hearing hushed voices in the living room, Peter slowed his walking as he approached Sinead and Aliana cautiously, not wanting to startle them. Hearing his wife struggle was more painful to him than anything he'd been through physically, leaning against the doorway a moment, he watched the two women as he went unnoticed. Sinead expressed that she needed to get away and Peter honestly didn't know what to think of that. He had so openly laughed in Gabriel Moretti's face about going home to Dublin but it was starting to seem like that was the only sensible choice now...at least for his little family.
Clearing his throat after Aliana asked what she could do to help Sin, Peter pushed himself from the doorway and moved to sit on the couch beside his wife. Turning and giving her a big hug, Peter cuddled his face into her hair as he let her cry in his arms. Looking to Aliana, he mouthed his thanks before leaning back to look at Sin."If we need to leave..." Peter paused as he wondered if it was worth putting up a fight to stay. Savannah had been attacked twice, Braden was out doing god knows what around New York and the only ones in their grasp of control right now was Emery and their unborn child. Did he really want to risk them getting caught up in all of this too? Working for the mob was torturing at times for him, but it also gave him a purpose. From the conversation he had with Conor and Jackson, there was no way they would be all headed back to Dublin any time soon.
He had to make the right decision here, for his marriage and he would always go where Sinead went. "We can leave. We can get the hell out of here. Tomorrow even, though I know we can't just leave without talking to the kids first. But this is too much for you, too much for me. They once again crossed a line that I didn't think they would and I'm sure what is best for us at this point is to go back home." Peter lifted Sinead's hands into his before kissing the tops of them gently. "Last night was successful but I have the feeling that now that we've held our ground with Moretti, he's not going to just stop. Mostly because he told us he wouldn't. The club is just the beginning of another shit storm. Best we get out of here while we still have the ability to. Your siblings will understand and if the off chance they don't, I will make them...okay?" Pressing a kiss to the top of her head, Peter leaned into her for a moment before giving her shoulders a tight squeeze. "I love you, Sin. I'll purchase the next tickets out of here tomorrow."
