S5.179 - Urban Decay

<- PREV        INDEX

Cosecant slammed her body up against the perimeter shield for the Hilbert curve so hard that she dislocated her shoulder. The reciprocal trig function collapsed onto the ground, now screaming as well as crying. QT ran over towards her, medical kit in hand.

"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," Julia Childset murmured. She had come out of a nearby monitoring post to meet up with the alpha group and step functions, after they had landed their gazebo. All of them were now looking back at the closed off region where Sine had vanished. "If we'd only been apprised of your arrival!"

"Maybe she'll make it out of there?" Logan said half-heartedly. "Trig often turn up where you least expect them..."

"It's hardly likely," Julia responded. "The overwriting would have been quick, if that's any comfort."

"The good of the many," Signum murmured. "Oh, Sine, I barely knew you." The group of them watched as Cosecant tried to physically push QT aside in order to tackle the perimeter again. The catgirl deftly produced a hyperspray to knock the trig function out.

"Csc's taking it hard," Hevvi grunted.

"Trig reciprocals are sworn to defend their primaries," Radik shot back at her. "Though also to respect their wishes, so we can HOPE that she'll get over it." He took a step forwards. "Of course, this is all because you tried to take over, why if you hadn't--"

Group dynamics, getting super deformed.

"Whoa! Stop! Not now," ParaB said, cutting between them before Hevvi could respond. "Not... not now." She reached up to press two fingers to her temples.

"There is, of course, no way to make this up to you," Julia said sadly. "But we will do whatever we can to assist! You mentioned looking for the question mark function, should I see if she left any sort of itinerary?"

"No, no," Logan said, waving off the fractal girl. "Our goal was actually to find probability. Which feels a tad pointless now. Unless they can raise the dead."

Julia blinked. "Well, I don't know about that, but I do know someone who can help you to find probability - statistics. Shall I set up a meeting?"

"Oh! That's... sure, but maybe give it a day or two?" Logan requested.

The dark haired woman nodded. "Of course. In the meantime, I'll see about getting you temporary lodgings in Fractal City."

"I doubt we have your currency," Hevvi pointed out. "But I have skills to deal with almost anyone."

The fractal smiled. "Deal or no deal, my colleague Howie Mandelbrot will be able to find rooms for you," Julia assured.
