Patrick: S-she just figured out that —

Miranda: — your Sparrow friend doesn’t know anything at all about Being-hacking, does she?

Patrick: Um —

Miranda: So how does she get into the fights? Did someone set it up for her? Or was it some kind of accident?

Patrick: I didn’t mean to! It was definitely an accident!

Emma: I’m lost. Is this bad?

Bianca: I don’t know! Miranda already has what she wants from us — she gets to spend time with Patrick again —

So there’s no reason for her to try to fight with us anymore. Right?

Miranda (thinking): Ugh . . . Dad’s putting on a front of being an attentive parent again. Even though we both know it’ll only last a few days, then he’ll give up or get busy and forget all about it. He’s done this for ten years. I know his game by now! Why is he still trying?
