(Scroll down for prize.)

So who was he, really?

My eye caught his mad scribbles around the math on my notebook paper. Words danced between the numbers with odd regularity, and patterns began to unfold in my mind. Patterns with a definite radius, odd, melodramatic limits, and…names…from my comic book…


We didn’t just have math competitions for fun. He didn’t just play with surface integrals because the regularity of it all gave a sense of order and peace to his chaotic life. He didn’t just solve physics dilemmas because they concentrate the mind in meditation that connected him to very the fabric of the Universe. I’d always known, and yet I hadn’t known.

He did this to hide himself in a Calculus code.

I couldn’t unravel his identity until I decided on my own. But math…math was where I hid, too, so it looked like a good place to start.
