It was a feast that Neal would remember for a long time.

He looked at the faces around the table that had become so important to him. Peter and Elizabeth were lost in their own world, the long-lasting love they shared obvious in the dim lighting. Diana and Jones were laughing at one of Mozzie’s conspiracy theories as June played the perfect hostess and refilled the wine glasses.

It wasn’t the food that Neal would remember, but the people he shared it with, and the memories they were creating. And for the first time, he knew what home felt like.

I haven't seen White Collar, but I have read a little bit of fic for it because I have some other friends that are also fans, so I have a basic idea of who the characters are. I loved this drabble! You paint a beautiful picture with your words, and I particularly loved that last paragraph. :)

Wonderful work!
Thank you! The last paragraph was one I had to play around with to fit with the word count and to get it in character, so I'm glad you liked it! :)
Love this little look into Neal and the people he cares about.
Beautiful! You did a terrific job at channeling the "inner" Neal, the real guy, without the mask he's so used to wear around everyone. Thanks for sharing!
I didn't get a chance to comment on this earlier but it's absolutely perfect and great prompt use.
