"Inverse's honour," Nat stated. "I'd say if you're willing to give Trig another try, we'll all welcome you back with open arms."

"Oh!" Tangent said in delight. Which was followed by a more uncertain, "Oh..." as she looked back towards Lyn.

"Let's handle the explosives first," Lyn suggested, still feeling hesitant about the Trig twins' motives. "We'll figure out the pros of your Conn later."
