“Come on, Mom,” Jo whined with a pout. “Can’t we just do turkey sandwiches from the deli and watch old movies like we always do?”

“Not this year.”

“I thought you liked not havin’ me in your hair on holidays,” Ash remarked.

“Not this year.”

“I have to man the phones,” Bobby protested over the line.

“How many times has anyone ever called on Thanksgiving?” There was a long pause. “Not this year.”

“Really?” Dean sounded eager, which was a change. “We’ll bring pie.”

Ellen looked over their motley family, too used to holidays apart and alone.

Not this year.
