S5.146 - The Die Is Cast



"Can we die?"

Maud blinked, turning his attention to the Parabola, who was now on her third glass of rose wine. Lately, the blonde Polynomial had become a regular in the makeshift bar he'd set up; they were all still making due after being kicked out of their original homes. "Pardon?" he asked.

Para swirled the liquid inside the glass she was holding. "We're the embodiment of mathematical equations. Can we die?"

The Modulus function crossed his arms and looked back at her. "Well... why ask me?"

The bunny girl finally lifted her gaze to stare at him. Her ears continued drooping, indicating she was opening down. "You ARE the one who was asked to decide our fate. The only one whom TPTB have actually spoken to."

Maud shook his head. "I don't know for sure that it was a Transcendental Pi-Type Being who addressed me."

"Who else would have had the power to expel us from Mathematics?!"

The bartender looked uneasy. "I don't know," Maud admitted. "But for all we know, it's these mysterious Probability-tans who did it. You know, the very ones that Logan and the alpha group are now searching for."

"Oh. Huh," was Para's only response. The ensuing silence quickly became uncomfortable.

"Is there some reason you're bringing up the past right now?" Maud asked.

The blonde function pressed the heel of her hand to her temples. "Yes. No. I don't know. I'm feeling hungry, do you have any cereal?"

"Uh... might have a box from several days ago," Maud said, scratching his head. "Would you be okay with Tuesday cereal?"
