Heinz’s view on the upcoming duel was, for lack of a better word, dismal. What reason behind it was there for it, besides satisfying the administrators’ blood lust? On top of that, fighting a former team mate wasn’t something he’d done in a while. That didn’t make the concept seem any more or less wrong.
How exactly to approach this was another matter altogether. Pacing the battlefield incessantly for his opponent, somebody he considered a friend, his weapon of choice remained clipped to his belt for now.
This shouldn’t be too hard. Medics were a class he’d fought countless times before, although this was a battle he had no means of running from. That fact alone was jarring.
Nothing for him to do now but wait for Isaak to show himself. With any luck Heinz wouldn’t face any sanctions himself, should the RED decide to abscond.
If anything was certain, it was that Isaak shared his dreary outlook in respects to this duel between the two of them.
It was one thing to have to battle opponents — opponents who were now his team, but that wasn’t the point — whom he barely knew, if at all, during their battles. It was another to have to fight a former teammate. Alone, at that.
The German wished that he could say that it was because they were friends, but he had never felt he had the freedom to call what little of a relationship they had by that name. Not to say that he hadn’t wanted to.
In the end, he doubted that the other medic would take such thing into account assuming he even was bothered that they had been on the same team before, and Isaak knew he shouldn’t either. It didn’t make it any easier, even when he tried to force himself to. He wasn’t even certain that he could hold that thinking for as long as it took to exhale.
He wanted nothing more than to avoid this whole situation, but he didn’t dare not make an appearance. The last thing he desired was to learn what punishments would lie in store for him if that were the case. Though, it did not have any impact on him loitering about for as long as possible before stepping out to meet Heinz at last.
"Have you been vaiting a long time?"
