An hourly employee must be paid for all time actually worked, so if you worked two hours, you must be paid for two hours. Neither federal nor your state's law has any minimum (i.e. they are not required to pay you for four hours)--that is, you are simply paid for the actual hours worked. (You employer may voluntarily choose to pay you more, but that is up to them; you can't make them pay you for more time than you worked.)
