Friday Fictioneers: Family Dinner

Family Dinner

On the outside he looked calm, collected. On the inside he felt like a swarm of bees. He had grown up in an orphanage. He met his true love in college. He married her the day after graduation. And today, exactly one week later, he would be meeting her parents. Complete strangers that he would call Mom and Dad. He would finally be part of a family. Today, in 30 minutes, he would be sitting down to his very first family dinner. He only looked calm. On the inside he was jumping for joy.

    I like this vignette. Now, I want to know more about what happens.
