"So, are y'all coming to my father's party?" I asked, taking a bite of my cupcake.

"We don't really have a choice. It's the biggest party of the year and if our father is going, we have to go too." Eliza said.

"My father's parties are trash though. You guys throw the best parties ever." I said.

"How so?" Angelica asked.

"You can really make some good ass food. Eliza's decorating is absolutely amazing. And Peggy is just the life of the party." I told them.

"Damn right." Peggy said. I chuckled.

"I get all the best recipes from my grandmother's old recipe book. Schuyler family's cooking tradition." Angelica said.

"I can be pretty creative when it comes to designing things." Eliza said.

I grinned. "You're really good at it, Liza."

"Thank you!" Eliza said, grinning back at me.

There was a loud thumping noise of someone walking down the stairs. Brother Schuyler.

"Hi sisters." Philip said. The Schuyler's waved at their little brother.

"Oh, hey John." Philip said, walking up to me.

"Sup Pip." I said. Philip and I did our special handshake that we use to greet each other.

"Where you going, bro?" Angelica asked.

"I'm going out to play some ball with my friends. Make sure you tell dad when he gets back." Philip told her.

"Alright. Be home by five." Angelica said.

"Will do, Angel." Philip said.

Angelica rolled her eyes. She hated the nickname 'Angel'.

"See you losers later." Philip said, running out the door.

"I love that kid." I said.

"He annoys me." Angelica huffed.

"Anyway, I heard the Jefferson's are coming to your party. I don't think they came to ours last year." Eliza said.

"That's because Jefferson got socked by Angelica and was too scared to show up." Peggy said.

"He's was being a perv. You think I was gonna let him get away with that?" Angelica said, finishing her third cupcake of the day.

I shook my head. "Feminism at it's finest. You gotta love it."

"Work!" The three sisters shouted, snapping their fingers in the air.

Not long after, their father walked into the mansion.

"Hi, daddy." Peggy said. Angelica and Eliza smiled when they saw their father come in.

"Hi girls. Where is your mother?" Philip Schuyler asked.

Catherine came downstairs and walked over to her husband, kissing him on the cheek with a smile.

"Oh, hello sweetie." Philip Schuyler said.

"Hi, honey." Catherine said.

"Hi, mommy." The three sisters said.

"Hello, darlings." Catherine said.

"Ah John. I didn't realize you were here. When and where is your father's party exactly?" Philip Schuyler asked.

"In three days, at his casino." I replied.

"Alright, thank you for giving me the information." Philip Schuyler said.
