Hello everyone! 

I am so sorry for the lack of activity lately. The Jawline has been keeping me insanely busy over the last month. 

We now bookmarks - which is wonderful and crazy.

The cigarette flickered with holiday stress. 
    "You know how I feel about those people." she said, tapping the sliver of white butt remaining, "They always judge us."
    "They do." he admitted. The dark bouquet of bottom dwelling red wine quickly flooding his throat. He moaned as the alcohol gave him a pleasurable burn. "They do. We do. Why not just be judged and move on?" he asked.
    She wasn't sure if it was the cold bite of Fall or her husband's habit for saying things that always hinged on one word before they evolved into plights, but she felt a lustful sting. It was dark, past sunset, before nightfall. Most people would call this dusk, but she was too familiar with the poetry collections in her bedroom to call it that. These were the moments between the hope for tomorrow and the resentment of yesterday. She reveled in this almost masochistic moment of ill-tempered philosophy.                  
    "Because," she began, dropping the bright orange stump on the ground and striking it with her favorite black stiletto javelin, "We did it."
    "Yes, we did." he assured, finishing the last swirls of wine. "Would you like me to start a bath?"
    It took a full week of planning, two turkeys, a ham, three bags of potatoes, a full five pounds of green beans, some cut fingers and the last cranberries to be seen on earth to accomplish that which she had done; her family, together, on a holiday.
    "Yes, please." she answered.             
    He turned towards the door behind them, reaching out.     
    "Honey, may I be honest with you?" she asked, half-turning herself to look him in the eye. 
    "Of course." he said. "Always."
    "I loathe your family."
    "And I, yours, my dear. And I yours." 
    
               
An After Feast Conversation
Well, it's here. Thanksgiving is upon us with delicious leg and breast in hand, stuffed with ripe family gatherings and ridiculously fantastic gravy. 

This piece was actually written with our humongous family coming over tomorrow through Friday in mind. See, we love them and desperately want them here to celebrate this mostly overlooked holiday with us, but. . . with many people comes much stress. :stare: The planning has been exhausting, the prep (and not to mention what is about to come when we actually have to cook and serve) is daunting; the house? Reorganized and scrubbed from ceiling to cement base. We are ready and willing. However, I couldn't help but have fun and do some minor prose work on the idea of sitting in the aftermath. 

I hope you enjoy, 
Tristan.

Would anyone be willing to help me with a very short piece of prose I did? As we all know, I am more familiar with poetry. 

I would love some feedback, if possible.
