Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


As she nestled into Daphne's shoulder and wrapped her arms around the Historian, Ullo felt a deep sense of belonging and contentment and almost instinctively her study of tribology led her to a consideration of the movement of Daphne's hand and both its cause and effect, and when Daphne asked about her life Down Under, Ullo told her about her sister, Ello and herself: “we're twins, obviously?  And Cristal and Conchita are sisters too and they're our cousins? and our dad and mom were both cops but they said it was too dangerous and guided us out of the idea of joining the police? but we still wanted to track down the bad guys so Ello studied and became a Forensic Psychologist and I'm a Forensic Scientist and we set up our own lab a couple of years ago but recently some big companies from the US have moved in and they've got the contracts from the State Governments so we're feeling kinda jaundiced? you know, about working there? we're really thinking of coming over here? we've no problem with the usual badinage between competing professionals, for sure? but we're not up for dogfights and can't compete with those big outfits with smart-ass lawyers and big bucks behind them? so I dunno really? and Daphne felt a vague idea she'd had at the back of her mind begin to crystallize and she gave Ullo a reassuring squeeze and said, “I think you've come to the right place, Sweetie, I think you've come home,” and Ullo's heart did a little capriole and she just said “phew?”
