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.

Hiro shrinks back in his chair. He looks miserable because he really doesn't want to kill anyone, but he may very well have to. "I will do what I must."

Nathan actually smirked at that around a nod. "It seems a lot of us are being pushed to do what we must lately. I can understand that."

Hiro nods. "Important men must make hard decisions."

"So I've been told... more than once." Nathan nodded and eyed the top of the table. He leaned forward on his elbows and lowered his voice. "Let me ask you... what if there is no way to stop this... explosion? We would need to keep the country in tact. I know it would be devastating but..." He shook his head. "I'm not sure what I'm trying to say."

Hiro looks confused. "But we must try. If it happens, many people will die. If we fail, then we must do what we can to help survivors. But we must not fail."

Claire was glad the subject seemed to have been changed. She took a seat at the empty chair at the table and hoped that Peter would get there soon. In the meantime, she could just stay quiet, sip on her coffee and not do anything to embarrass Nathan.

Ando smiles at her. "How did you get to New York? You were in Texas, yes?"
claire_rahrah on May 10th, 2007 02:23 am (UTC)
"I was. I'm just here for a little while. To thank Peter for helping me in Texas." That was vague enough, right? She should never have come here, she should have just stayed at the house and bided her time until Peter got there. It's not like there weren't parts of the house she could have explored instead.

"That is very nice of you. I'm glad he saved you. The brain man came after you, didn't he?"
claire_rahrah on May 10th, 2007 03:40 am (UTC)
She spilled some of her coffee at the mention of Sylar. That was who he was asking her about, wasn't it? Who else would be brain man?

"Yeah, yeah, he did," she said simply, reaching for a napkin to clean up the mess she made before it dripped on Nathan's suit or something.

"I'm happy you escaped him. It would be very sad to have not met you."
