Implode (Hello, Lucy)

It was complicated.
The relationship with the foie gras.
Particularly Mr. Vongeritchen’s creation.
The coffee colored brûlée, adorned in a dress of sour cherries, pistachio accompaniment, and white port gelée, was culinary refinement.

Too extraordinary for mortal consumption.
Too profound for a mere man.

And though the caramelized organ, jubilantly absorbed in the recesses of his glands, the process of gavage troubled him.

Yet, they were all gorged.
Even the lighting was tired.
And so they lounged within the opulence of a dim dining room, vacated by guests, their three courses and dessert washed down by a Château Lafite Rothschild.

Claire listened to Neil, swirling rouge wine in her glass, as he told a tale that required the use of large hand gestures.

Maxwell observed his wife, adoringly.

“That is the last time I publish a book that has anything to do with icebergs, penguins, or Antarctica.”

They all laugh.

Though Benjamin could not deter his gaze from Lucy.

Neil turned to him.

“I understand you’ve done some traveling yourself.”

Benjamin, neatly shaven and clothed in materials mended by Tom Ford, rejoined the conversation.

“I’ve seen some places.”

“It’d be hard not to, consorting with these two.”

The Mulberry’s smile. Maxwell strokes his wife’s hair.

“Indulge me.”

“Malaysia. Thailand. New Delhi.”

He paused.

“The Vedda still hunt and gather their own food, but are increasingly being driven from the land.”

Lucy was intrigued. Her full, red lips, contorting into a smile.

Her husband was curious as well.

“The most magnificent thing you’ve ever seen.”

Benjamin turned toward the blonde siren with the scarlet mouth.

“Your wife.”
