If you're looking for Shannon, she's in her room watching the end of a cheesy Thanksgiving special play out on televison. Shouldn't she be spending the holiday with (what remains of) her family, you ask? Yeah, she already tried that. It didn't really work.

Obviously.

Boone feels like shit for the argument they had at the table not too long ago. More specifically, for mentioning her father.

He knocks lightly on the door with the knuckle of his middle finger. "Shannon?"

Telling him to go away probably wouldn't help things. Settling for the next best thing, she glares. "What do you want?"

He pauses, letting out a soft, barely audible sigh. "Can I come in?"

"Yeah. Sure. Whatever." She clicks off the television and folds her arms across her chest. "So what are you doing here? Did you think of some more stuff Dad did wrong?”

Boone enters and sits at the foot of the bed, not wanting to invade Shannon's space. "No," he says softly. "I'm sorry about earlier. I said a lot of things I didn't mean."

Shannon makes a derisive noise. "That doesn't make it okay."

"I know it doesn't." He can't look her eyes; his hands fiddle with the comforter.

“Then why’d you say anything? Why couldn’t you just admit that your mom fucked up our lives and you weren’t exactly helpful?”

One could probably ask why Shannon never admits that maybe she had a hand in screwing up her own life. Though if one doesn’t want to start another argument, one probably realizes that that would be a bad idea.

Boone opens his mouth and closes it again, not taking Shannon's bait. He calms himself before speaking again. "I don't want to argue again, Shannon."

She sighs and moves restlessly. "Fine, then let's not."

They sit in silence for a long moment before Boone chances a question. "So you forgive me?"

Date: 2007-10-27 04:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] friggin-gift.livejournal.com
"Is there anything I can do to facilitate forgiveness?"

Much as she wants to spend the rest of the night sulking, this is getting harder to resist. Especially when he uses words like "facilitate."

"You could try not being such an insensitive jackass next time."

Boone grits his teeth: he will be the bigger person. "I promise." He finally meets her eyes and smiles his crooked smile. "Look like we still had a typical Thanksgiving, even without Sabrina."

Date: 2007-10-27 05:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] comma-sticks.livejournal.com
Pity he didn't pick a better time to finally look up. Like maybe not at the same time as mentioning that bitch Sabrina, which only serves to earn him another glare. “Yeah, except that it would have been so much worse with her around.”

Date: 2007-10-27 05:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] friggin-gift.livejournal.com
He keeps on smiling. "You're not wrong."

Date: 2007-10-27 05:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] comma-sticks.livejournal.com
“So why do you like her again? Don't even say it's because she's your mom. You, like, worked for her."

He ponders an answer that isn't, Because she's my mom. "Because she gives me money?" he hazards.

Date: 2007-10-27 05:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] comma-sticks.livejournal.com
"Yeah, she gave you money."

There may be some lingering resentment here. Just possibly.

A sigh and a roll of the eyes. "Because she gave birth to me? Is that better?"

Date: 2007-10-27 06:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] comma-sticks.livejournal.com
"That's the same thing as 'because she's my mom,' Boone."

From: [identity profile] friggin-gift.livejournal.com
Shrug. "Then I'm drawing a blank. Do we have to keep talking about her?" It's not defensive, it's a plea.

Date: 2007-10-27 06:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] comma-sticks.livejournal.com
"God, no." The less Sabrina, the better.

"Why, do you have anything better to talk about?"

Boone ponders this for a minute. "The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?"
