We got out of the car and walked up the driveway. I was glad to see my siblings here; having them stationed near Mom and Dad made family visits so much easier. I hadn't seen much of any of them on my last half dozen or so visits, but then again, my brother and I barely managed to see each other when he was stationed at Pearl Harbor. On my second trip to see Elliott, I'd introduced him to the family, but every time I'd come back since then, it was virtually impossible to line up everyone's schedules and see anyone. Hell, my brother was the only one so far who'd met Elliott more than once.
But tonight, everyone was finally here.
I rang the doorbell, and a moment later, my mother opened the front door. She greeted us with a taut smile, and hugged me half-heartedly.
That's odd, I thought as she let me go and avoided my eyes. My mother was reserved like the rest of the family, but any time she saw me, she hugged me so hard I joked she was trying to kill me. This time, she'd given me the kind of quick, loose embrace she might have offered to an acquaintance.
She didn't offer Elliott so much as a handshake, which wasn't that unusual. "Elliott," she said with a smile that didn't extend beyond her lips. "It's good to see you again."
"You, too," Elliott said with a much more genuine smile.
"The family's in here." She gestured toward the living room, and turned to go before either of us could say a word.
Elliott looked at me, eyebrows up. I shrugged. Following my mother into the living room where the rest of the family relaxed, my gut twisted into knots. What was I missing?
Those knots twisted even tighter when everyone in the living room--Dad, Jamie and her husband Bill, and Kevin--simultaneously tensed as Elliott and I walked in.
