Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the Family

A Story by Jofer Serapio

Written for Fiftywordfiction. It's a club where we write prose on a strict "fifty word count".


First dinner with her parents, first big dinner with everyone else. Her sisters and cousins; her nieces and nephews, uncles and aunts; and her grandfather are all seated, curious at my smile. The wafting smell of good food blended well with good company. Welcome to the family, she kissed me.

For a moment there I thought this peice was just going to be a long list of family members.. until the final line cinched it and painted a warm and fuzzy picture. I enjoy pieces like this... there is so much heartache in the world, it is nice to read a happy piece like this. :)

Great family ink! ;p
