we gather together

November 2043 - Julien and Melissa Cooke are 56, Adrien Cooke is 14, Anthony Cooke is 26, Anjali Ramaswami is 25.

Julien and Melissa are excited to have Anthony and Anjali home for Thanksgiving. It's only been a few months since they moved to Takemizu Village, but it's a big adjustment not to have their son living a few blocks away.

"When are Anthony and Anjali coming home?" Julien asks.

"Sunday afternoon. Anthony says they have big news to tell us."
