Episode Four: Halloween
When Payton got home she told Ian all about the costume contest in her class and how she’s working with a new partner that she’s never worked with before. Ian offered to help her choose or even make the costume she wanted but she declined politely as she said her partner was going to think of something, then she went off to do her homework and wait for dinner to be ready.
Ian, watching his daughter walk away started thinking, he’s made a good amount of friends in the last week or two and decided he’d try to throw a halloween party. He’s never thrown one before but he’s confident that it’ll be a success, he’ll even let Payton invite a few friends so she won’t be left out. So, while Payton was doing her own thing, he started calling up all his friends or people he’s been introduced to. After calling everyone and explaining that he wanted to throw a party, he gathered that the best day to do it was actually tomorrow. So, he texted them with the full detail.
An half an hour later, Payton finished her homework and even decided to do the extra credit. Ian cooked dinner, cleaned the house a little and got him and Payton ready for bed.
Ian: “Payton, tomorrow we’re having a halloween party.”
Payton: “Tomorrow? Why not on halloween?”
Ian: “I’ve already talked to the people I wanted to invite and they where free tomorrow sometime in the late afternoon. So if you want, ask someone of your friends to come, i’m pretty sure I know all your friends and have their parents emergency contact.”
Payton: “Wel, ok then. I’ll ask around. But I can’t help you set up, because my partner is coming over to start discussing ur costumes, or something like that i’m not sure.”
Ian: “That’s fine … but I thought I was supposed to drop you off and meet his parents? What happened to that?”
Payton: “I’m not sure, he said today at school that his dad was sick or something.”
Ian: “Well alright. It’s a little bit past your bedtime, so get to bed, do you want me to pull out your princess costume?”
Payton: “No thank you. I wanna go different this year. But, goodnight dad! See you in the morning!”
