"IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME, NIKI," PETER SAID, SETTING DOWN HIS EMPTY GLASS.

"IT'S JESSICA, NOW," SHE CORRECTED. "NIKI'S DEAD."

"WHAT A SHAME," PETER REPLIED. "I LIKED NIKI."

"NIKI WASN'T WORTH IT," JESSICA SNAPPED.

PETER SHRUGGED. "THAT'S A MATTER OF OPINION," HE SAID. "HELL OF A VOICE. I REMEMBER SOME NIGHTS SHE'D BE SINGING IN THE CLUB AND THERE WASN'T A DRY EYE IN THE HOUSE." HE PUT HIS HAT BACK ON AND STOOD UP. "I DON'T SUPPOSE YOU SING, DO YOU JESSICA?"

JESSICA GLARED AT HIM. "DON'T PLAY GAMES WITH ME, PETRELLI. IF I WANTED TO I COULD TAKE AND YOUR WHOLE EMPIRE DOWN WITH WHAT I KNOW."

"NO NEED TO BE RUDE, DOLLFACE," PETER SAID. "I WAS JUST GONNA OFFER YOU A JOB IF YOU NEEDED IT. BEEN HARD UP FOR A SONGBIRD SINCE NIKI RAN OFF." HE LOOKED HER STRAIGHT IN THE EYES. "BEEN HARD UP FOR A LOT OF THINGS."

"THOSE DAYS ARE OVER," SHE SAID. "IT WAS A MISTAKE THEN. IT WOULD BE A BIGGER MISTAKE NOW."

"THING ABOUT MISTAKES," PETER SAID. "I'M GOOD AT MAKING 'EM, BUT I'M REAL BAD AT REGRETTING 'EM." HE TIPPED HIS HAT AND WALKED AWAY, LEAVING JESSICA ALONE WITH HER THOUGHTS.
