“All flights have been cancelled until further notice.” The announcement over the airport’s P.A. system wasn’t surprising considering the number of emergency vehicles that surrounded the airport and littered the runways. I checked in at the ticket counter with everyone else and found I was rescheduled for a flight tomorrow shortly after noon. I headed for the exit, hoping to catch a cab to a decent hotel.
I was almost to the door when I heard someone call my name. “Isabelle?”
I turned to my left and saw a tall, very handsome man dressed in a black tailored suit. “Izzy?” he said. Only one person had ever called me Izzy.
He put down his briefcase and opened his arms. I went into them without hesitation, my body instantly remembering the feel of him even after almost a decade. Parker and I had dated through all four of my university years, breaking up only when he left to pursue a job on Wall Street; I hadn’t been invited along. I hadn’t stopped loving him, he’d just moved on.
Parker broke the embrace first, pulling back to kiss both of my cheeks. He smelled exactly like he used to, a mixture of manliness and mystery. “You look amazing, Izzy,” he said, his eyes drilling into me like they used to when we were young lovers. I’d forgotten how piercing his gaze could be, as if I was the only person in the world. Parker ran his hand down my arm as he continued to look at me.
