So, I guess I lied about there not being a post today...
I was actually in the shower when the idea came to me. You see, I was trying to think of books that are either based around the Thanksgiving holiday, or at least mention it some significant way. Then I remembered that Infinite Limits does just that! So in order to help celebrate how thankful I am for all of you, here is a first look at Infinite Limits...
Jade slumped her shoulders in defeat.
She adjusted her scarf more tightly around her neck.
If she pulled hard enough, she might choke and pass out, avoiding the situation altogether.
Before she knew it, they were walking up the steps.
They were in the front door. There was warm light filling the space in her head that had been dark for months. Mrs. Ashby was taking her coat. Asking her if she had a pleasant flight. Telling her she was the final guest to arrive, and assuring that no one was stuffed with turkey yet. Just alcohol.
“I’m so glad you came back to visit,” Mrs. Ashby
cheered. She was escorting Jade into the dining room.
“Larson has missed you dearly.”
Jade tried to remember the last time Larson’s mom
was so attentive. He’d mentioned that things were different at home, but she hadn’t been expecting this. She noted that Mr. Ashby hadn’t made an appearance. Maybe that was it.
They’d finally separated.
Jade felt a lump form in her throat at the thought of just how much she and Larson needed to catch up.
“I’m glad to be back,” she said, returning Mrs. Ashby’s smile with one of her own.
Jade was half-way lying. But it didn’t feel like it.
“Are you planning on going back to Vanderbilt? I
know Larson mentioned you were taking time off.”
She brushed a hand through Jade’s hair. “Don’t worry, dear. Everyone does it. I did. It took me a year before I finally kicked my rear back into gear, but I did it. Graduated on schedule, too.”
She winked. “You’ve got the rest of your life to figure out what you want to do with it.”
This was by far the most astounding and inspiring thing Jade had ever heard come out of Mrs. Ashby’s mouth. She stood with her mouth agape and found herself leaning into the woman, feeling safe.
Mrs. Ashby lit up the room with another smile, then she faced the dining room before them. Everyone Jade had stumbled across in the past six years was now sitting at the table, including a few new faces. Silas was pulling out a chair for Larson as he entered the room through the kitchen. Larson was carrying the turkey on a silver platter. He placed it carefully on the cloth surface and took the seat provided for him.
