Well, its a fiction . Here is how I planned it:
1.everyone gathered around the table, classical music playing at the background, brown classical styled furniture.
2. My father talking about politics with my brother while my mother talking to her friends and my grandma about shopping. Basically everyone forgets about me except for my grandfather who is swinging on the chair next to me with a bottle of whisky in his hand and whispering "wise" advice half soberly.
and then there is aunt Hilda who just came to our house to eat, you could see that on her face.
Here is how I started
It was a wonderful morning on February the 20th followed by a very awkward evening where most of my family ended up sitting around the table and me being at the head of it, yes it was my fourteenth birthday.
A person at the head of the table would be expected to be the main target on which the guest would focus on, but that wasn't the case. It seemed that everyone was in a different world.
I need help with describing the atmosphere around the table, please help.
