Hiro arrives in New York  
New York reminds Hiro of Tokyo, though it is a city of steel and stone to Tokyo's steel and wood. He finds himself unconsciously moving with the tide of people, though he doesn't step out into the crosswalks when the sign is red. He wonders if these people are really trying to get themselves run over.

He finds, though, that he's far too short in this city of gaijin and it makes it hard for him to really see anything except when he's right on top of them.

"Mi-te! Mi-te!" he says to Ando. He pulls his friend through the throng of now-annoyed people to the store front he wanted to find. "Forbidden Planet!"

He's peering at the books in the window as Ando says, "Are you sure, Hiro-kun? This doesn't look like a place where we'll find an exploding man."

"The latest issue will be out! Perhaps it will tell us where the exploding man is."

Ando shrugs elaborately and follows Hiro into the store. As Hiro tries to remember his American alphabet to find the latest issue, Ando looks around for girls, only to be disappointed that there seem to be only guys around.

"Yattazo!" Hiro crows as quietly as possible, but still with great enthusiasm. He clutches the current issue of "Ninth Wonders" in hand, trying carefully not to crush it to pulp. Quickly he goes to the counter and pays for it.

"Now where?" Ando asks.

"A place where I can read it. A coffee shop will do."

With a shake of his head, Ando blends back into the crowd with his friend.

So, if anyone wants to play with Hiro, he's sitting at a coffee shop.

Nathan had lost count of how many people he had 'discussed the issues' with today. Door to door, as Katherine had suggested was proving to be taxing... and he was out of coffee.

He walked into the shop, waiting for Katherine to call him and tell him which neighborhood was next. "Coffee, tall, black." He ordered, paid for the drink and stood back to wait.

That was when he noticed the familiar face sitting in the corner with a comic book. He narrowed his eyes and picked up his coffee when it was handed to him accross the counter. He made his way to the corner table.

"Mr. Nakamura, Nathan Petrelli. We seem to keep running into each other." He grinned and extended a hand in greeting.

"Flying man!"

Ando looks rather embarassed, but Hiro throws his arms around Nathan exuberantly.

"You are here? To find exploding man?"

Nathan held up a ahnd and winced before putting his index finger to his lips. He shushed Hiro as his gaze darted around the coffee shop and then back to Hiro. "Can we keep that part quiet?" He asked, unable to help the small grin that stayed on his lips.

"I actually just came for coffee. May I?" He indicated an empty seat at the table.

"Mochiron! Of course!" He pulls his chair closer to Ando's to make room for Nathan. "Sorry, I'm not very good at keeping secrets." He says this with a rather exaggerated quiet. "I just went to Forbidden Planet." He rattles the comic. "I am hoping it will tell us where the exploding man hides."

Nathan scooted the chair to the table and nodded a greeting to Ando. He leaned up to look at the page of the comic book that Hiro had in his posession. "The... the forbidden planet? Have you learned anything more about this... supposed exploding man? Are you here in New York to stop him?" He asked curiously, his thoughts immediately going to Peter and ways to hide him. He needed to call him and tell him to stay invisible if more people were after him.

Although Hiro had never seemed the dangerous type to Nathan. For some reason he had taken to the guy from moment one. Surely he wasn't going to hurt Peter.

"We have to stop the exploding man. You, me, Ando... But I have no idea how to stop him or when it will even happen." He looks worried. "So many people will die if we cannot stop him."

An eyebrow arched high on Nathan's brow and he shook his head. "Me? How do you propose we stop him?"

Katherine "Kitty" Pryde/Shadowcat: katherine pryde at workenduring_pryde on May 13th, 2007 02:31 am (UTC)
Just like the last couple of days, Katherine had him running all across town, talking to the people about whatever came to mind. She had been keeping track of what interested them and was keeping up a spreadsheet of information for reference later.

Now they were coming down to the wire and the campaign headquarters was abuzz at nearly all hours of a day. There were some days where she didn't leave until after one in the morning...and then be back at six.

She had given Nathan what she felt to be substantial time to work through the last batch of addresses, so she rang him on his cell to give him the next round.
Peter Petrelli: Peter name head bowedmybrothershadow on May 10th, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
Peter found Claire's note back at the house and knew where the coffee shop was. It wasn't far from the house so rather than deal with trying to find a parking place for the old Camero he left Tex in Nathan's yeard with the boys (much to their delight) and walked down to the coffee shop.

He was surprised when saw Claire sitting with Nathan and two men he didn't know. He threaded his way through the people at the coffee shop until he reached the table Nathan, Claire and the other two were sitting at. "Hey...sorry I took so long," he told Claire as he nabbed an empty chair and scooted it up to the table next to Nathan.

One of the guys looked familar but not enough that he could place him. "Hi, I'm Peter Petrelli," he introduced himself.
powered_otakupowered_otaku on May 10th, 2007 06:01 pm (UTC)
Hiro looks very happy. "Peter-san! It is a pleasure to meet you. We spoke on the phone." He holds out his hand. Peter may now recognize him as Hiro Nakamura, but he certainly seems a lot younger and enthusiastic than the version that Peter met. "I try to call Mr. Isaac, but you answered phone."
Peter Petrelli: Superhero Saving the world one cheerleadmybrothershadow on May 10th, 2007 09:20 pm (UTC)
"I remember!" Peter says staring at Hiro openly. "From the subway...I mean...future you. Save the cheerleader...save the world." He glanced over at Claire. "Cheerleader saved. Kind of."
powered_otaku: I come in peace by g_shadowslayerpowered_otaku on May 10th, 2007 10:07 pm (UTC)
"You met future me? He told you to save the cheerleader?"
vote4nathan on May 10th, 2007 10:34 pm (UTC)
Nathan pressed his lips together and drew a deep breath. This conversation had no relevance to him any longer... not with the information and pressure he was recieving from both Linderman and his mother. There were certain things he would talk about with just Hiro and certain things he wouldn't discuss in front of both his brother and his newly discovered daughter. Especially when his involvement in all of this was pushing him towards one of the most difficult decisions he had ever had to make... a decision he didn't want to have to make no matter how inevitable this explosion seemed to be.

For the moment, it didn't hurt to simply listen and gain more information. He sat back in his seat and quietly sipped at his coffee.
Peter Petrelli: BW heromybrothershadow on May 10th, 2007 11:12 pm (UTC)
Peter nodded at Hiro. "Uhm yeah...you stopped time on the subway or I did...anyway. You told me 'save the cheerleader, save the world.' You said I could be the one we needed."
claire_rahrah on May 11th, 2007 09:39 pm (UTC)
"That's what sent you to Odessa? Wow, I'm impressed," Claire said, sipping her coffee, feeling a little more comfortable talking about this now that Peter was here talking about it too. She realized, too, they had so much to talk about. All of them probably. Like how did he know she was the one? Well, the newspaper article, but how did he know that article meant anything? "How did you know where to go?"
