"What? Why me?" Para squeaked.
"Because I need a female counterpoint, and Lyn seems to prefer checking out other subjects."
"I'm interested in those subjects too," Cosine piped up. "I hear they're taught in periods."
"I don't know," Sine said, placing her hands on her hips. "I think I'd prefer to go with ParaB. Seeking out new life or new civilizations, that sounds like it would be right up my alley. Anyone else with us?"
Radik III nodded. "I'll join! Since after we find those others, we can mount a strike force to take back mathematics!"
Cubi grinned. "Hey, I'm all over that as well!"
"Bad plan," Quinn countered, reaching out to grab Cubi before she could move to join the others. "You'd spend all your time making out with your inverse. QT, you're nominated to go with the ParaB team to represent Polynomials."
"What? Why me?" QT squeaked, her exclamation having even more power than Para's.
"Don't worry, catgirl," Cosecant said reassuringly. "I'll make you're kept safe. Because Sine isn't going to be traveling without her reciprocal, for security reasons." Secant nodded in agreement, moving to take up her own position next to Cosine.
"Too many females in ParaB's group now," Logan said, adjusting his eyepatch. "I'd better go along too. Besides, I have a ship."
"Okay, six is a perfect number," Maud concluded. "Plus you've got Radik III, who seems to know something about the new world as well... er, where did your information come from, by the way?"
"It's genetic. From my imaginary roots," Radik said, grinning.
There was a pause. "Uh, does he have to be a part of our group?" ParaB asked.
