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.

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.
