“We were playing all of the songs you want to hear—Bowie, Prince, George Michael—we were trying to do a whole, ‘Can you fucking believe what happened in 2016?’ playlist. But then I just was like, We gotta get some Chance the Rapper and start getting down and dirty with it. I felt there was kind of an energy to that party where everyone was just like, ‘Ugh, I want to dance off 2016, get it out and start over.’ That’s all I wanted, and it happened, right after midnight. “It was,” she continues, “what the kids these days call ‘a rager.’"
Who broke the tea pot? I'm not mad, I just want to know.
I did. I broke it.
No. No you didn't. Lucie?
Don't look at me. Look at James.
What?! I didn't break it.
Oh, that's weird. How'd you even know it was broken?
Because it's sitting right in front of us and its broken!
No it's not!
If it matters, probably not, but Matthew was the last one to use it.
Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
Oh really? Than what were you doing by the tea cart earlier?
I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that Carstairs!
Okay let's not fight. I broke it. Let me pay for it Mr. Herondale.
No! Who broke it?
Dad... Anna has been awfully quiet.
[Everyone starts fighting]
[Later] I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict 10 minutes from now they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little too chummy around here.
