OPEN Who Robs A Deli?

Post by Oakley on September 17th 2017, 7:57 am

The day had been rather stressful. An intern knocked over one of the racks, causing quite a mess. Dirt and plants were everywhere and Holti was certainly frustrated. It caused him to only have five real minutes of eating lunch before it was straight back to work. Along with this, someone had forgotten to order new containers so they were set back even more. The most they could do is say that they'd catch up the next day and soon enough, Holti was sent home on time.

Normally, he'd make his own meal, but he was far too tired for doing that. Instead, he decided to go to his favorite deli, one that was a bit out of the way and was locally owned, rather than being a chain. It wasn't as popular with tourists since it was not on any of the main streets, but all of the sandwiches were sold at a wonderful price. Cheap-ish food in a big city was a blessing and Holti would gladly take it any day.

The air around him did feel odd as he made his way to the shop and he couldn't help but tense up a small bit, fiddling with his hands as he walked. Few people were on the streets and many people seemed to be avoiding the shop all together. He picked up his pace, searching for any reason on why people were behaving in such a peculiar way. It wasn't until he was a couple of stores away that he saw what was happening.

Only a few people in the deli shop were physically moving around, while everyone else stood quietly with their hands raised. It was a bit hard to visually make out, but Holti could see a few guns. He couldn't hear what they were saying but it was obvious enough to figure out the situation at hand.

A loud groan left the man as he ran a hand through his hair. “Great. Just fantastic. The one day I decide to get a sandwich and this happens!” Thankfully, he was wearing contacts today. Otherwise he'd be in some deep trouble. “Couldn't they have picked something different? Like an ATM robbery? And not where I wanted to get my dinner?” While he spoke, he quickly made his way into the nearest alley in order to get changed into his outfit. It was held inside what he claimed was a laptop case, except there never truly was any laptops. Only papers from work and his suit. He'd have to hide it somewhere and no way in hell was he going to let someone steal his laptop while he was dealing with something.

It only took him a minute or so to change, for now he was watching the shop carefully where he wouldn't be seen as easily, trying to come up with a plan of action. There were plenty of things he didn't want to do, such as kill them. So what was he supposed to do? Holti wasn't as used to dealing with situations that involved innocent bystanders. No. There was a reason he preferred dealing with ATM robberies. Only him and the culprits, never anyone to worry about protecting.

A layover meant Danny and Tsukimi would be in New York City for a little while longer. Neither made plans for this, nor packed enough clothes for the trip, so their afternoon plan involved finding the nearest laundry mat they could, and dropping all of their stuff off, pop in some quarters, and wait for the magic to happen.

With all of their real clothes swishing around in the washing machine, both girls opted for their best laundry day attire. Danny wore a pair of black warm up pants with her Stanford jacket, while Tsukimi opted to just wear the cheerleading skirt with a white T-shirt on top. "They said our plane should be good to go tomorrow night."

"It was good to go last night." Tsukimi rested her chin on her hand. "You weren't."

"I was saving the city. Maybe the world." Danny watched as the clothes continued to spin around the tub. "Cut me a little slack."

"I'm hungry. What won't kill me in this city?" The storefront window gave them a look at a number of hotdog vendors and other streetside views with a pizza shop thrown in for good measure. But, none of those fit Tsukimi's 'Won't kill me' clause. "Can you screw up a sandwich?"

"You have to work really hard at it." Danny pulled the load of laundry out of the machine and pushed it into the dryer. "We can wait there while out clothes dry."

"What if someone tries to steal our-" A turquoise lock snapped into place, sealing the lid of the dryer. "Well, I'm down."

Danny and Tsukimi both enjoyed what they ate at the deli, but the service could use some help. Not in the way of manners or timeliness, but more in the sense of dealing with the armed robbers who burst in.

"You know we have to deal with this right?" Tsukimi kept her hands in the air, straightening them for whenever the gun passed by.

"It's a priority. But, if I just try to fight right here, someone could get hurt." With her hands in the air, Danny could not ready her bracelet for an offensive display. She would need a distraction to help her out. "Let's try to keep it quiet though. I don't think these guys have the steadiest of trigger fingers."

"That can be helpful." Tsukimi leaned her head over to try and avoid her voice carrying too far.

"Can be. It can also mean a stray bullet hits someone." Seeing the robbers begin to take notice of their talk, Danny straightened herself back up. "Now hush. You're going to make them do something stupid."

There was certainly a reason Holti preferred ATM robberies. For one, it was only him and the people causing the trouble with the occasional bystander. Still, they were not inside the room with him. For another reason, the people tended to not be as stupid about putting the lives of others in danger. Here though, here the people holding the guns were idiots. Holti could tell by their actions from where he was. One wasn't even holding the damn gun properly!

Now, he would be happy about this on most occasions, but not when there were other people involved to worry about. One shot gone wrong and they would hit a child instead of him. That was the last thing Holti wanted. But what was he supposed to do? First, he had to make a distraction, get the robbers off guard. Maybe then the owners could press a panic alarm or call for police.

He couldn't help but hope for some assistance. Sure, he could take this on his own, but people can pray.

Quietly, he made his way over to a car parked close to the shop. From there, he took out some seeds from his satchel and tossed them, getting a few to land in front of the shop. Then, he did something pretty stupid. He punched the car. Hard. This in turn triggered the car's alarm, blaring out. This alerted anyone who didn't already know about the robbery, along with possibly getting the guys off guard. Hopefully it wouldn't leave a dent.

That's when he took the opportunity. Using one of the seeds which belonged to a tulip poplar, he used as much energy to make it grow rapidl. The tree shot in through the glass, shattering on impact. If the robbers weren't already off guard, this would certainly do the trick. He could help fix any damages, no problem. The window being gone meant more escape routes...so it's fine. Not like he probably shouldn't have done that, nope.

Impulsive could certainly match with both of his actions.

Keeping the bullets in the gun served as the first priority Danny needed to address. Keeping Tsukimi from blowing everything by getting in a fight with a thug would be priority number two. At some point stopping the entire robbery would need to be addressed, so Danny put a pin in that one at number three.

"I've got an idea." Tsukimi leaned back into Danny's comfort zone.

"Is it to live a long life full of health and not die right now?"

"I find your lack of faith disturbing."

"If you aren't choking someone with your mind in five seconds, you don't deserve that quote."

"What quote?"

"I told you to stop talking!" A man with a gun walked over to the Danny's table. He pushed Tsukimi's hands behind her back and wrapped them with duct tape before sticking a piece over her mouth. "Now, be quiet!" The man scratched the side of his head with his gun before heading back to the counter.

Danny leaned over and whispered to Tsukimi. "You deserve that for not knowing where that quote comes from. But, I think I have a plan now."

Tiny turquoise bars began to form in the air, poking the man whom accosted them in the back of the leg. Once he pulled back around, another bar would appear and poke him from the other side.

"This place has bugs! Can't even run a restaurant! We should burn this place down!" While not the largest of the thugs, he did seem to have the most irrational of moods. At least, it appeared he did.

"If we burn it down now, we don't get the goods. We should shoot a hostage!" A car alarm blared in front of the store, prompting a slight look from those inside, but for the most part it would only serve to give Danny a moment to move her hand over to her bracelet.

Tsukimi turned to Danny with her eyes as narrow as they could get.

"Oh, like your plan was so much better." Knowing the time for subterfuge was over, Danny decided to get into the action. A splash of roots broke through the glass, sending shards all about the ground. "Fine. Time to speed up the process."

A turquoise shield emerged from Danny's arm large enough to protect Danny's entire upper torso, while a crossbow emerged in her right hand. Danny lifted the shield just enough to launch a bolt towards the two men. The bolt broke out into a net, ensnaring both men in a net. With two men under control, Danny moved forward, hoping the men would stay under control, but as Danny moved closer, a hand reached out from the net, grabbing Danny's ankle and lifting her off her feet and onto the ground.
