Notes: Written for comment_fic, promt: Noah/Angela, where her dreams and his overlap

Noah knew that some of the things he had seen and done would seem impossible for most people. But Noah knew that most people had no clue. They lived in their “normal” world, protected, unknowing of the reality.

His wife Sandra was one of the “normal” ones. He had promised to protect her, her and their children if they ever were going to get any, and that’s what he did, even if she didn’t know it. He protected her from his reality.

Noah was happy most of the time. He was good at caring for his wife, her dogs, keeping her happy. He was good at the work he did.

And yet, sometimes he dreamed of other things.

Not about being “special”, not about having an ability; no, he knew only too well how destructive that kind of powers could be.

No, Noah didn’t desire power. He desired Angela.

Angela Petrelli; the beautiful woman with the black hair and the black sorrow somewhere deep in her eyes. Angela, always at Arthur Petrelli’s side; silent, serious.

What was going on in her mind? Noah wished that he knew. He dreamed that he would one day make her smile, that she would confide in him, trust him.

On the outside, she looked fragile, small and delicate; he dreamed that he could one day take her in his arms, and…

And what? Noah was ashamed sometimes when he couldn’t get rid of those thoughts, couldn’t get Angela out of his mind. He was a married man. Angela was a married woman – and not just any married woman – if anyone knew what he felt for her, it would be a disaster.

And she was not that fragile; she was powerful and important. This knowledge only made him admire and desire her more.

And he wanted her to know. That was his secret dream and he couldn’t kill it, no matter how hard he tried.

Maybe he didn’t try hard enough.

He knew of course that his dream was impossible. He could never tell her what he felt, and even if he did, she wouldn’t be happy to hear about it.

But if that is impossible, Noah decided, then I’ll just work harder. I will dedicate my body and soul to the Company, and one day Angela will see the truth, she will look at my dedication and read the truth in it.


Not everybody was aware of the importance of Angela’s ability and she liked to have it that way.

If people knew that she could see the future in her dreams, it wouldn’t take long before they started to blame her for things that happened. She could have changed this, she could have changed that… if only she had told this or that person…

Knowledge is power.

She had never asked for it, but as it was given to her, she used it the way she thought was best. She did change things sometimes – and not always did she tell anyone about it.

But to the Company she had been the founder of, or one of them, she was important. They could all do things, but only Angela could see the effects of their actions.

Why give Meredith’s child to young Noah Bennet and his wife? Why to him, of all people?

They all agreed that it was the best decision for a number of reasons, but Angela also had her own private reason that no one knew about.

It was going to happen, of course, very soon. Angela had seen it already in her sleep: Kaito was going to give the child to the surprised young man, and warn him about getting to close to the baby. He shouldn’t get too close to a baby that belonged to the Company.

Angela smiled to herself. Noah Bennet was going to get close to the little girl, and she knew it. He was going to love her, and despite what the others might think, Angela wanted him to love her. Yes, maybe she had said – and thought – once or twice that love was overrated, but after all, she couldn’t lie to herself. She loved Nathan and Peter. She loved them because she was their mother, and she knew that there could never be any stronger bond than that.

If Noah’s bond to Claire was strong, he was going to go beyond his duty to protect her.

Angela wanted her granddaughter to be protected, cared for, and loved – and she couldn’t do it herself. She couldn’t, for Nathan’s sake. The boy was young, the future had big things in store for him, he was in no position to take responsibility for an illegitimate child. If she had to chose between caring for Nathan and caring for Claire, she had to chose her son.

That was why the little girl was going to be sent away with Noah. That was the second best thing for her.

Or maybe, Angela wondered, even the better thing for her? God knows it is not easy to be a Petrelli.

Noah Bennet had a lot of love within him; Angela knew this. That was not something most people would think, just by looking at him, but Angela was not most people. She knew things about him that he didn’t even know himself, because they hadn’t happened yet, and she knew even some of his own secrets.

Angela had to admit that sometimes, her precognitions were not such a heavy burden. Sometimes they gave her something to look forward to.

She knew that Noah was trustworthy and loyal to the Company. She also knew that one day, many, many years later, when she and the others had finally followed their plans to the end and made the world a better place, he would still be loyal to her.

One day when the little girl was grown up, he would finally muster up his courage and tell her that he loved her.
