Root was the next to arrive at the bar. His neutral expression quickly became a smile. "Hi all! Great day for gardening, isn't it?" he declared. "I may do some later, now that my hacking cough is gone..."

"You don't have to act happy for my benefit," QT said sadly. "I know you're worried about Para's disappearance too."

"I'm not acting!" Root retorted. "I'm positive that we'll track her down!"

The cat girl tapped her two index fingers together nervously. "But... I think the Conics have her."

"Oh." Root sighed, looking less pleased. "Day's just become dysfunctional."

"Conics?" Maud questioned. He hadn't seen anyone like that in the bar yet.

"They once had a custody battle with us Polynomials over Para," QT explained. "Made a good case for her inclusion in their family instead... but in the end, we won."

"Polynomial lawyers had better degrees," Root remarked.
