She smiled as she looked at the autumn world. The crisp, cold, air that faintly smelled of pumpkin and cinnamon, probably some coffee shop nearby. The leaves of warm tones seemed to be at conflict with the cooling temperatures.

Taking a deep breathe she said, “Isn’t fall great?”

“It does have it’s nice days – that’s for sure,” her brother, Matt, replied.

“Fall makes me realize that Christmas is just around the corner.”

He turned with an eyebrow raised and a corner of his mouth turned up too, “Christmas?”

“Yeah! It’s so close now!”

“It’s not even winter yet! And you’re thinking about Christmas?” He shook his head, “Kids these days, only thinking about the presents.”

“What? Oh wise old man, what are thy doubts?”

He rolled his eyes, “This wise man does have his doubts.”

“What might they be?” she pried.

“Have you forgotten Thanksgiving?”

“No one cares about that holiday,” she said with a wave of her hand. “It’s a ghost holiday now.”

“And that’s sad! After our ancestors suffered a harsh winter previous, they got to have a great meal and realize all the things they could be thankful for! Is no one thankful now-a-days?”

She shrugged saying, “Sorry bro, it’s just not that important.” She was confused why he was so riled up about it. It left her feeling as if she was missing something.

His eyes looked slightly sadden as he said, “Well, this is your stop.” Stopping in front of her school. “See you at dismissal, alright?” He ran a hand over her head, messing up her hair.

“Hey! Jerk!” she said, taking a swing at him that was easily dodged and laughed upon.

“Bye!” he laughed, waving over his shoulder.

“Bye,” she replied softly to his disappearing form. Throughout the day she would think about his anger or frustration about Thanksgiving and wonder why he was so upset.
