The party kept raging on, but it was almost midnight. 

Some sort of strange business meeting was to take place at midnight.


Even if it's sinister, it still doesn't make sense.


Exactly, who would host an important meeting at a party of loud drunk people? 

And, unfortunately, I never really figured out what that meeting was about. But, my brother and I made a new ally.

It's nearly midnight. Apparently, there will be a business meeting.
