Flora: Mom, do you think Ender will still want to marry Baby M now that she gave us all stomach flu?
Jane: Um… I don’t think Ender has any plans to marry M.
F: Oh, I know, he’s too young to think of such things. I’ve arranged it for him. But do you think it will happen now?
J: When… how… why…
F: It’s good to get these things taken of early, you know, and then you can get on with life. I’m worried about Cinder: I really don’t know who he’s going to marry. Jade and Skye are definitely not interested. Maybe Moxie: she has an obnoxious older brother too, so she’d be able to deal with him.
