I think we will wrap this delivery up and close out this scene within 3 weeks or so.
Skipito makes like a pinball and goes with the flow, pinging and ponging about until the falling debris zips past an open window. He barely manages to leap through it, and finds himself inside a bedroom, which is currently occupied by an amorous couple. Between their noises and the clatter of the falling fire escape, they don't notice his entry, and he manages to hunker down in a corner amidst the shadows without being spotted. Something tells him this is *not* the delivery location.
Just then, Rin calls over the headset: "Skipito-san, whats your reading? Do you need back-up?" This is a little garbled since Bozuko yells "nnnrghgawa! Jump free, Skipito!" at the same time, but Skipito gets the point. However, being in a delicate situation, he does not respond, so Rin and Bozuko turns their attention elsewhere: the crowd. Rin does, actually, find a wide assortment of fireworks in the back of the van, and can choose to set them off if she so chooses.
The strange shouting and the crumbling fire escape lead at least several people to assume that there's something not right about what's going on, and more than a few people reach for cellphones. The Dispatcher comes in over your headset and, doing his best Han Solo impression, says "Luke, we're gonna have company. The nearest police station is only a few blocks away!"
Still, Bozuko and Rin manage to keep most of the crowd distracted, and the net result is that nobody sees Skipito pong into the window, nor Kitaro as he scurries past the lot of them and makes it inside to the stairwell, where he dashes upstairs. He rounds the first landing and runs headlong into someone coming downstairs in quite a hurry. He looks up, dazed, and sees another deliveryperson.
But it's not a ninja. It's a pirate from Pirate Pizza.
The pirate is holding a handful of loose bolts and a wrench.
