Rendezvous Berlin is the second installment in the Decisions Made By Hurt & Hope series.
Isaac travels to Europe in search of his brother who, up until recently, he believed to be dead.
Isaac awoke with a startle and a jerk as the plane touched down at Charles de Gaulle. He felt sweat perspiring at his hairline, the desirous summon still haunting him two sleeps later. He looked over at Colette, magazine still in hand as the plane began to near the terminal.
"Sleep well?" she asked, not taking her eyes off the words on the page.
Isaac didn't answer, leaning forward to collect his things back into his backpack. He shoved his jacket in first, slipping his headphones and bottle of water in after in a not-so-delicate, almost frustrated sort of way.
"I take that as a no," Colette remarked, looking quite relaxed in her seat as the plane came to a halt so the ramp could extend and connect with the plane.
Isaac glared up at her before leaning back into his seat and unbuckling the belt around his waist. She looked at him sharply, challenging him to say whatever was on his mind. The werewolf only glared back at her until the sign above them binged and the seatbelt sign went off. Immediately, clacks all throughout the cabin could be heard and people began to stand, rummaging around and engaging in conversation with other members of their parties.
The blonde French woman next to him stood up and grabbed her leather book-bag from the overhead compartment before stepping back to allow him to get out in front of her. The pair departed as slowly as the rest of the passengers, having to stop and wait now and then for some family or some passenger who was, of course, a beat behind everyone else. Once they found their way off the ramp, through the terminal, and passed customs, Colette finally spoke again. "Are we not talking still?"
"I'm just going through some shit," Isaac said rather gloomily.
"You could have stayed," she offered.
Isaac shook his head.
"You still love him, no?"
"I do. I never stopped. I just…I love my brother, too. I need to find him."
