Chapter 1

I gain significant information about this society by the public records at my disposal. I have read many interesting things about the past few hundred years. It seems there was once something called the United States. I guess it was a smaller version of the United Countries of the World. The year 3076 is much different than A.D. 65, that's for sure. Many wars have taken place since we left Rome, which was actually many centuries ago, even though it's only been two years for us. It's still hard for me to believe we're here.

"Michael, are you ready for supper?" Mary asked, interrupting my thoughts.

"Sure, dear, I'm always ready for your fine cooking," I said.

The meals are quite different than what she made in Rome because there are now so many more options to choose from. She made a tender roast, some potatoes, bread, and a fruit cobbler. She still makes a great hot cider to help get me going in the mornings, and her interest in my daily activities is still one of the main questions she asks every evening.

"How did your day go?" Mary asked as she handed me a glass of wine.

"Nothing out of the ordinary," I replied. I liked the wine of this century; she served it to me chilled.

"I was thinking about Paul today, and wondered what he would think about the world as it now exists," She said.
