Hello, Sakari here~
Today I decided to listen to the Hamilton soundtrack, I was singing and imitating their voices. I was singing very loudly, the kits decided to come and see who was singing. They obviously knew it was me, but for some reason they came down anyway. I still wonder if they thought my singing was terrible, but they can't tell me since they are cats...
Oh! Right, HawkKit is now 5 months old, and BrambleKit is now 3 months old! I baked a cake and ordered pie to congratulate them on growing older. They seem to be loosening up now, HawkKit is now the more childish one than BrambleKit. As BrambleKit grows, he is growing even thicker than HawkKit and he gets more taller... I wonder how they will be when they're six months old.
Anyway, the kits came down and stared at me as I made my voice change to the people's in Hamilton. I put a lot of emotion into it too... During the song Satisfied, I got up and danced to the rhythm and gave the expressions of sadness.
Alright, alright! That's what I'm talkin' about! Now, everyone, give it up- for the maid of honor, Angelica Schuyler!"
I got up and grabbed my water bottle, a smile planted on my face. I held the bottle up and said my part.
"A toast to the groom!"
"To the bride!"
"From your sister!"
"Who is always by your side!"
"To your union!"
I heard the cats coming down the stairs.
"And to the hope that you provide!"
"May you always..."
The cats stop for a moment, they are on the third step.
The cats came down and stare at me, I had already placed the water down and sat down. It started the reversing part, memories. I made a frustrated expression on, the kittens seem convinced and they stare in confusion.
"I remember that night, I just might regret that night for the rest of my days..."
I got up again and looked down with sorrow in my eyes.
"I remember those soldier boys tripping over themselves to win our praise..."
I look up, I got over to a unlit candle and grab my lighter, I lit the candle and walked back. The kits went over to the couch and jumped onto it, seating themselves in a comfortable position.
"I remember that dreamlike candlelight, like a dream that you can't quite place...
But Alexander, I'll never forget the first time I saw your face."
I turned to the kits, staring at HawkKit. He stared at me, his eyes still showing confusion.
"I have never been the same, intelligent eyes in a hunger-pang frame~
And when you said 'hi' I forgot my dang name... Set my heart aflame, every part aflame.
This is not a game~"
I went and sat next to him, not breaking eye contact with him. My face flushed, he went on acting with me. He meowed at Alex' part, he put a paw close to me.
"I'm sure I don't know what you mean, you forget yourself."
He meowed at Alex part again, 'You're like me, I'm never satisfied.'
"Is that right?"
I asked my face flushed darker as I smiled at his acting. He meowed again, I looked away and put my hand near his.
"My name is Angelica Schuyler~"
I flirted and went and pulled the skirt I was wearing up in a curtsy. He bowed and meowed, taking Alexander's part.
"Where's your family from?"
I saw that HawkKit jerked back in surprise and kept quiet. Alex' part passed and I got up again, I twirled and sang.
"So so so- So this is what it feels like to match wits with someone what the hell is the catch? It's the feeling of freedom, of seein' the light~ It's Ben Franklin with a key and a kite! You see it right?"
I bent down to look at BrambleKit, he seemed flustered and looked away, and at his brother. I went and twirled with a lovestruck expression, HawkKit giving a amused look.
"The conversation lasted two minutes maybe three minutes! Everything we said in agreement, it's a dream and it's a bit of a dance."
I stopped twirling and got in a dancing position, my hands on invisible shoulders, I looked towards the kits. I acted so in love, it was tiring.
"A bit of a posture, it's a bit of a stance. He's a bit of a flirt, I'm a' give it a chance~"
I acted as if I was twirled away and turned back to face the kits.
"I asked about his family, did you see his answer? His hands started fidgeting, he looked askance? He's penniless, he's fling by the seat of his pants."
I turned away and closed my eyes, a random thought popped into my mind. I forgot I had invited my sister over, shit! Just as that thought flew by, the door knob moved and it opened, the kits were shocked.
"Handsome boy does he know it! Peach fuzz, and he can't even grow it! I wanna take him far away from this place then I turn and see my sister's face and she it..."
My sister had already shut the door, she looked at me and sang in a slightly high pitched voice-
I gave a look of shock and took a step back.
"And I know she is..."
She gave a bright smile and gave an expression mimicking a slightly love look.
I gave a look of terror next, I took another step back.
"And her eyes are just...!"
My sister held her hands together and took a step forward.
I took another step back as tears made their way to my eyes, I bent slightly down as if I was hurt.
"And I realize-
Thee fundamental truths at the exact same time...!"
I went over and grabbed HawkKit, he looked at me and meowed. I smiled and looked at my sister.
"I'm about to change your life..."
He meows and looks over at my sister, she gives a look of love and affection. His eyes change to a gaze of emptiness.
I freeze and change the way I'm holding HawkKit and take slow steps towards my sister.
"I'm a girl in a world where my only job is to marry rich... My father has no sons so I'm the one who has to Social climb for one. So I'm the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in New York City is insidious. And Alexander is penniless- ha! That doesn't mean I want him any less."
My sister gives a curtsy with her pink dress.
"Elizabeth Schuyler, it's a pleasure to meet you."
He meows and looks at me. I look at him with a fake happy expression.
Number two, he's after me cause I'm a Schuyler sister that elevates his status, Id have to be naive to set that aside. Maybe that is why I introduce him to Eliza, now that's his bride. Nice going Angelica, he was right. You will never be satisfied..."
He gives me a look of shock, as if he didn't like what I said. I looked down my eyes showed agony, I made sure to hide it, they didn't know it was true.
"Thank you for all your service!"
My sister says while she gives a fake blush. HawkKit meows in response, and she goes along with it.
"I'll leave you to it!"
I give her HawkKit and they look at me, they are watching my every step.
I know my sister like I know my own mind! You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind, if I tell her that I love him- she'd be silently resigned... He'd be mine, she would say 'I'm fine'— She'd be lying!"
I had real tears streaming down my face and I was full on acting. I fell down in the middle, I was on my knees and crying. They kits eyes widened and they jumped down from where they were and went to me, staring at my pitiful state. I didn't break character at all.
I collected myself and wiped my tears away, my sister looked at me with a heartwarming look. She saw it all as an act, it wasn't.
"But when I fantasize at night, it's Alexander's eyes. As I romanticize what might have been if I hadn't sized him up so quickly... At least my dear Eliza's his wife, at least I keep his eyes in my life...~"
I finished the song off and quickly dried my tears. I started laughing and high fived my sister and congratulated her on playing her part. The kittens ran back up stairs, they played in my room while my sister and I caught up on things. This took three pages, hmmm~
Signing off, Sakari Asta.
