Thanksgiving Day

Jacqueline could not sleep for tomorrow was Thanksgiving day and with that she would once more, maybe for the last time, meet her Grandparents.

She had not often as of late seen them. For they lived in Paris. Paris the city of love and lights. Jacqueline does not remember the many sunny summer days spent at their villa by the lake.

She had been but a young child then and happening and memories seem to ever fade.
Now they were coming and she so longed for their arrival

Nana was beautiful by all counts and the lovely photographs that her father had shown her and Papa was of course as handsome as she was beautiful. They had always lived their lives in Europe, in one country or another. How they had raised her father, she would never know.

Now that she was the magic age of thirteen, they had promised to come once more to celebrate her life in Thanksgiving.

Mara and Theo were coming to see her. She wished she could magically fly away forever. Back to Paris. Away from this nothing town and nothing life. She would bring him, Will with her. That she knew for certain . Not that it was bad for them but she wanted to grow and she wanted Will to be with her.

Together they would roam Europe and see all the wonders that there were to seen. To be a part of Nana's and Papa's lives to the end.
