Poking at something new

Me: Okay, I know something happened here, right where the story begins, something bad. What?
A: I don’t want to talk about it.
K: I can’t talk about it.
L: Why am I always the one who has to talk about it?
Me: Because you can. That’s why you’re a protagonist.
M: I’ll talk about it.
Me: Okay. That would work, too.
M: Well, but not with everyone else here.

And so it goes …

(ETA — E: I’ll talk about it, and spare no concern for any humans who might hear.)
