It was Alexander’s fault honestly. He couldn’t keep from boasting. You and John were currently at the Hamilton estate so your two little boys could have a play date. They weren’t old enough to do much playing or interacting but you wanted the boys to be associated with each other. John had your little boy propped up on his lap. You had named him Henry Laurens Jr. You knew John had a tense relationship with his father and you knew that gesture of honor would not go unnoticed.
“So Y/N, did you hear the news?” Alexander asked.
“Possibly.” You answered cautiously. You never knew what Alexander would ever say.
“Washington asked me to be part of his new cabinet.” He said proudly.
“Really? We haven’t been back to my parents home in weeks.” You said happily for him.
“He did?” John asked.
So, you were unsurprised when John spoke up at dinner with your parents. Martha was feeding Henry some food he could actually eat, though he ended up wearing most of it. “So,” John nervously began. “Alexander mentioned that you made him a part of your cabinet.”
“I did.” You father responded evenly. Though you knew that tone. He seemed to be withholding some tidbit of information.
