(SHORT STORY) A young man comes home for Thanksgiving -- alone. His family doesn't want to ask the question, but deep down, they already know she's not coming. As the dejected fellow gazes out the window, he sees something that brings his dark post-breakup mood into sharper focus. This is a short story about that place we have all been, that all-too-familiar fog of heartbreak.
