"On the contrary!" Exsecant cut in. "I was firing my phaser to protect you Trigonometric ratios!"

"You looked dangerous!" Exsecant countered. "And with you drawing me away, upon my return I thought Cosecant was a perpetrator fleeing the scene. How was I to know?"
Sine and Cosine exchanged uneasy glances. "Our word against theirs," Cosine yielded. "Just like the last time."
"And the time before that," Sine concurred.
"But this time, you can at least charge Exsecant with impersonation of a security officer," Toc pointed out.
"Aha, yes!" Secant agreed. "Can't explain away that outfit!"
Exsecant glanced down at her yellow-gold top, which would be difficult to pass off as lime green in the current light. "Er, would you believe dry cleaning mixup?" she ventured.
