Doug, do you remember my aunt Aki?
Yes, she came to our wedding. She’s a very sweet lady.
I know. She’s always been very popular. I heard some good news about her.
What’s that? Tell me.
I heard she’s dating the archaeologist, Professor Peacock!
Wow! I’m rather surprised, but I’m very happy for her.
Me too. I like his books, so if she marries him, I’ll have a lot of chances to talk with him. I can’t wait!
Jeannie, how are you and Frankie getting along?
We’re not getting along.
Well, I’m not sure if he truly needs me. He spends almost all his time with his new friends.
He’s just going through a phase. Believe me, he needs you.
I’m tired of being lonely. What can I do?
Ask him if he wants to go on a trip with you.
A trip? To where?
How about another country? I heard Japan is interesting.
Megan, we have arrived at your home planet.
Already? It only took 15 minutes!
Yes. I told you we could travel from Mars to Earth in that time.
I can’t believe it. It’s just as if I had taken a train from Tokyo to Shinjuku!
Shinjuku? What is that?
It’s a city in Japan. There is a famous vegan ramen shop there.
Did you say Vegan?
I said “vegan.”
Sounds interesting. We are from Vega. So we should try it.
Alexis, what happened to your hand?
It’s nothing serious. I cut my finger as I was Ba chopping carrots.
Ouch, that sounds painful! I hope you washed it.
Of course I did. By the way, I also found this today.
Your wedding ring.
Where was it?
Under your desk. I found it as I was cleaning your room. Didn’t you look for it?
I was in a hurry and didn’t have time to look.

Why have you decided to break up with him?
Because he treats me as if he was my father. He always tells me what I should do.
But he can’t expect me to come home by seven and go to bed at ten.
Hey, what’s up?
It seems I got bitten by an insect. It hurts badly. Do you know if the pharmacy is still open?
If it is, could you go and get something for this? I can’t walk.
