Passion Overseas

“You know I will,” he said in a soft voice.

“And you better not fuck this up because I will kill you,” she added in a loud whisper, loud enough for Erica to hear.

“Then I better not fuck up,” he said as he pulled away from her. She looked at him and smiled before she threw her arms around her sister.

“I already miss you,” she said in a soft voice.

Even though Erica thought she was strong, her sister’s words touched a part of her she didn’t expect. Her eyes welled up as she held her sister in her arms.

“Hey, sympathetic crier here. Don’t make me turn on the water works,” Emily said as she rubbed her sister’s back. She pulled away and held her sister’s face in her eyes. “I’m really happy to see that you’re happy,” she said as she brushed off Erica’s tears.

“I am. I really, really am,” Erica said in a low voice.

“I know. You got a great one here. I would hold on to him if I were you,” Emily said.

Daniel smiled and nodded. “Words of a wise woman.”

“Trust me. I intend on doing it,” Erica said as Daniel slipped an arm around her waist.

“Do you have a layover?” Daniel asked. Emily looked at her boarding pass and nodded.

“Yup. I will be in Paris for eight hours. I can’t wait to go shopping. Avenue Montaigne and The Marais, here I come,” Emily said excitedly. She looked into Erica’s eyes and hugged her again before she pulled back and smiled. “Guess I better get going, huh?” she said and Erica nodded.

“Yeah. Call me as soon as you get to Paris, when you leave and when you land in Philly,” Erica said.

“Yes mother,” Emily said shaking her head and rolling her eyes at Daniel. “How do you do it?” she whispered to Daniel before she walked away, her luggage in hand.

“I do it because I love her,” Daniel thought as he planted a kiss on Erica’s head. “Ready to go?” he asked. Erica was still looking at her sister who had just walked through the gates. Erica made a weird noise, something that made Daniel realize that she was the kind of person who liked looking at someone until they disappeared in the horizon. “Come on, standing here is not going to make it any easier on you,” he added as he led her out.

“Even though she did kind of walk in on my vacation, I am really sad to see her go,” she said in a low voice as they walked out of the terminal.

“Come on, let’s get you something to make you feel better,” he said in a low voice. She smiled and rested her head on his shoulder.

“Ice cream?” she asked.

“Ice cream sounds good,” he laughed opening the door for her.

“And maybe just stay in today. No visits, no nothing,” she said when he climbed into the driver’s seat.

“Whatever you want babe,” he said as he revved the engine to life. He looked at her and sighed before pulling out of the parking lot. He knew that she was having a hard time readjusting but he had something in mind that would cheer her up later.

After taking Emily to the airport, Erica was right not to want to do anything. If he didn’t know better, Daniel would have thought that she had been traumatized or something. It was only then that he realized what a great bond Erica had with her sister even though they were constantly fighting when they were together. It dawned on him that he was actually the same way with his sister. He came to the conclusion that he thought Erica’s and Emily’s bond was tighter because he was on the outside looking in.

“Maybe people think the same when they see me and Mel,” he thought as he drove her back. When they got back to the hotel, he took her hand in his and led her to the restaurant.

“Daniel, I said I just wanted to stay in…” she started before he shook his head.

“And do what? Wallow?” he asked as he looked at her.

“I don’t know what you want baby. All I know is I just want to stay in bed and maybe watch a movie,” she sighed. Daniel held her face in his hands and pressed his lips to hers.

“I’m here and I promised your bossy sister I would take care of you. So now, we are going to go have something to eat and then maybe you and I can do something later that does not involve being sad. Maybe check out a club or something,” he said as he looked at her. She forced out a smile and shrugged. “Trust me, I’ll make it worth your while,” he said before he kissed her cheek softly. She smiled and followed him to a table. She couldn’t help looking into his eyes as they sat down.
