I just want you for my own
Ellen couldn't believe Thanksgiving had already passed and Christmas was right around the corner. This year, her family had come over to her house to spend the holiday. The house had been full of Watson's and even Kelly's. A few members of her Irish family had decided to fly to the U.S. for the holidays this year. Ellen didn't know if she could fit everyone in her house, so naturally she let people know of any nearby hotels. Usually, Ellen got excited when she got to entertain family. It gave her the chance to show off her beautiful children and open her house to company, but this year she felt off. For the most part, she had managed to fake a smile and suffer through quite seamlessly.
Of course, her mother had known she was faking it the whole time. During the nights, her mom stayed up late at night to talk to her about what was wrong. Honestly, Ellen didn't mind talking to her. With Lawson away at his family's for Thanksgiving, she couldn't sleep. She was afraid of having more nightmares, and without Lawson, nobody would be there to comfort her.
Finally, her family left. But not before Lawson came home. Ellen had actually been quite embarrassed introducing her rather drunk relatives to him. The majority of her Irish relatives had indulged in too much whiskey which wasn't anything different. Once they had all gone for good, she felt like she was ready to crash. And she had crashed. She was so tired she slept through most of the days. But the sleep she gained was hardly any at all. The dreams that filled her mind while she slept prevented her from gaining any sense of restfulness.
Today she was tired of sitting around doing nothing, so she suggested to Lawson that they try Christmas shopping. That always got her in the mood. She had her winter coat, scarf, hat, and gloves on as she walked towards the mall with Law. In her hand was a carefully thought out list of what she wanted to get people. "Is there anywhere you want to go first?" she asked him. She pulled the entrance door open for him and removed her gloves once she was inside.
