#Day#"care". Raffy and Mimic exchanged a glance, then nodded.
"That was fast. What, don't you trust me not to get into any trouble
Bob hung his head. "Right. Then why don't we do just that? You two
can follow me nervously, while I take a nice, long, peaceful walk."
The hybrid stood up, stretched, and tossed his empty water bottle
towards the trash - only for it to hit a passing loudred.
Who snarled, even as her trainer called out, "Hey! Loudred, don't let
him get away with that!"
Mimic teleported the trio outside as the first chunks of plaster began
to fall under the aural assault.
"Okay," Bob sighed, "not the best start. But for now - oh, 'scuse me."
He barely avoided walking into a pinstripe-suited midget talking to two
The small one did not seem to notice. "I'm tellin' ya, boys, I don't
know who did it, but the cops are all occupied. We gots da run of this
town for half an hour, at least. Whaddya say we rob the bank?"
"Umm, boss?" one of the goons asked. "Look behind ya. Ain't dat de one
dat Vinny said wrecked his cousin's base?"
Bob stopped walking away at that, giving the leader ample time to turn
around and examine him. "Why, so it is! And at a time like this."
He reached into his suit, bringing out a small submachine gun at the
same time his goons did. "Keep the head intact! There's probably a
reward on it!"
It had been the first actual gun Mimic had seen in a long time. Thanks
to Bob's Razor Leafs, it would be yet more time before he saw one fire
Bob grinned. "I can take you to the police station, or the morgue.
"Neither," Mimic declared as he clapped a hand on Bob's shoulder and
teleported the three of them elsewhere.
And so a half hour passed, until Mimic finally just teleported them from
the bar brawl that had spilled out onto the street a block from the
Daycare Center as they were walking by, to the Center's front door.
Bob rolled his eyes. "Maybe you should just teleport me inside while
you're at it."
"Is tempting. But Mimic suspect unlikely will get into fight just
knocking on door. Then again, Mimic choosing words carefully right now
not tempt fate."
