Miranda and Minor do not get almost carried away again.
Rebecca gets pregnant again. Jeremy or Lydia is due in June.
"I think we're on track for significantly more than that!!!"
"Why would God care."

Aaron starts working full time on his spice trade. Fawley comes over to Miranda's for the last few weeks of the holidays.
September rolls around and Minor and Miranda and Karen go back for their seventh year.
The sixth years pick up pet firsties! All the firsties are accounted for, with one sixth year not getting one. Miranda is proud.

He doesn't go to investigate. He is not particularly advantaged at investigating.
He does write Elio. "I'm sure you've heard the news; it's frightening. I imagine you've anticipated the potential for violent resistance; do you know what other meeting halls might do to keep themselves a little safer?"
