QT saw the Whisker-and-Box plot before any of the others. But she and Slope had only just barely caught up to them, giving her no time to verbalize a proper warning. Thinking quickly, she planted a heel into the ground and changed her forward momentum into a spin.

This resulted in Slope being hurled around and forwards, past everyone else... so when Cubi's foot hit the whisker, sounding the alarm and causing the faces of the box to spring up around them, the brunette was able to vault clear.

"Oh, figures they'd have laid out a net!" Root groaned as the box closed overhead, sealing them inside.

"Right," Reci said, snapping his fingers. "Did I forget to warn you about that?"

"Hey, who cares!" Cubi declared. "Don't nets have limits?" She sliced at the material with her bokken. Then blinked in surprise as the yielding surface failed to create any space through which they could exit.

"I don't think this net is topo-logical," QT remarked.

"Well, it's not a .net framework," Root decided, running his hand over the smooth surface.  "Otherwise it would have windows."
