Summary: Reese Hughes' son was kidnapped when he was three-years-old. Twenty-four years later, when his daughter desperately needs a bone marrow transplant, Hughes discovers that his son has been right in his own office, working as Peter Burke's CI.

Notes: The prologue breaks from canon during the events of Point Blank, and as such, many of the words belong to Jeff Eastin, writer of the episode. Also, I researched the hell out of the medical aspects of the story, but I'm not a doctor, so creative license was taken at times.

( Neal heard Diana call his name, but he didn't care. He was so close to confronting Fowler, to confronting Kate's killer that nothing else mattered. He grabbed the knife from the display case and sliced through the rope holding the banner without much thought. His body and mind felt both disconnected and so incredibly in-tune with each other at the same time. It was exhilarating. )

Acknowledgements: There are many people to thank for this one, and I will not name them because I've been working on this story for a long time, my memory is pretty crappy, and I would not forgive myself if I missed anyone. To everyone who encouraged me to keep at this story, I owe you a very deep gratitude. There were times that I wanted to give up, and you just wouldn't let me. Much love to you all!

I dedicate this story to the memory of James Rebhorn. Hughes was one of my favorite characters, and I will miss him greatly in the last season of our beloved show.
