               Thomas Jefferson stared in shock at the 7 year old girl on his doorstep.  He whipped his head to the left and the right so quickly, his hair almost flew off of his head.  He heard a sniffle and he glanced down again, his palms splayed against the frame of his doorway as he stared incredulously at the child before him.  Her face was red and her eyes were puffy; she wouldn’t stop crying.  

               “My word!  J-Jefferson, that’s!”

               “I know it, James!”

              Shit, where was–??

               “U-uncle Jeffy…I-I…I can’t…” the little girl hiccupped and Jefferson pushed his fingers through his curls in confusion.

               “Angie.  Where the hell is your dad?!” he asked.  That started the waterworks up again as a low whine built up in her throat before growing to a loud wail.

               “I-I l-l-loooooost him!  A-and I don’t…I can’t…ahhhhHHH!!!”  

               Damn-it.

               “Thomas…” James Madison looked at his comrade worriedly as Jefferson squatted down before the girl and put his hand on her head.

               “Hey…hey c’mon now, princess. D-don’t cry.  It’ll be alright,” he said, gently taking her forearm and pulling her forward.  She put up no resistance as she buried her face in his shoulder, heaving heavy sobs against him.  He sighed and hugged her.

               “It’s alright.  It’s okay.  Uncle Jeffy’s got ya…” he said lowly.  How the hell did Hamilton lose track of his own daughter in the city?  And how the fuck did she wind up on Jefferson’s doorstep? Where was Alexander?

               “What are we gonna do, Thomas?” James asked.  He had stopped by Jefferson’s business residence at 57 Maiden Lane in New York so the two of them could work on drafting amendments to several proposals that were set to be pushed through Congress over the next couple of weeks.

              …The girl was about two hours away from her family’s home in Albany.
