>Let's try to gently extricate ourself from Nitori without waking her up or letting her fall over. Failing that, gently guiding her down without waking her up.
>If we're successful, let's go see what we can do about breakfast.

>You gently lower Nitori down to the couch without waking her.
>That done, you get up from the couch and hit the kitchen for breakfast.

>No dice. You finished the last sandwich last night.

>The contents of the kitchen cabinets did not survive the Yorigami Sukeban's raid yesterday.
>The fridge survived unscathed, so you went for it. Opening the fridge, you find that it is mostly empty, with only a few cans of cucumber beer and some cucumbers (one of which looked like it is in the process of decomposing).

>You remove the decomposing cucumber from the fridge, then go out to the window and chuck it into the dumpster down below.
>Then you take two normal cucumbers out of the fridge, and cut them up into slices. The slices are not perfect, but that'll do for now...

>You nibble on a few pieces, and found them all to be a bit stale.
>Nevertheless, you take the cucumber slices (with the chopping board, as none of the plates survived the Sukeban's raid) back to the living room, and wait for Nitori to wake up.
>At that moment, you see the cucumber beer ad being taken over by a breaking news about a bank robbery.

>Mutter: "Well at least they're focusing on people who need to be robbed."
>Munch on stale cucumber, until only half is left, and leave the rest for Nitori, and watch the news.

>You munch on half of the cucumber, leaving the other half for Nitori.
>As you watched the news, you learn that the bank is robbed by the Yorigami Sukeban.
>A CCTV footage of the bank job is played as the news reported about it, showing that there are four Sukeban at the bank job.
>You recognize three of them as the same three you hid from, and overheard about robbing a bank the other day. They must've been talking about this job...

>Let's listen for details.

>You keep listening to the news.
>Some details about the bank job you can garner from the news report is that 1) it seems to have happened last night, 2) the police are suspecting that the Sukeban must've planned the heist days in advance, and 3) the police also suspect that there must've been an inside job, since the Sukeban knew the exact layout of the bank including its "authorized personnel only" parts.
>But one particular point the news report emphasized on has you surprised:
>"...And according to eyewitness reports, one of the Sukeban apparently simply tore the vault door right off its hinges..."

>You continue watching.
>"As of now, the police are requesting the public to report anything that can help with the investigation of this case if possible. More on the news later..."
>And that's it. The news report ended right there...
>That is also when you hear Nitori waking up.
>"Oh... you're up early today..." Nitori says as she rub her eyes. "Did I miss anything?"

>Nitori blinked at your first two statements.
>"Well, I don't want to be on the receiving end of that punch..." She said dully (and a tiny bit bitterly).
>She then turn her attention on the cucumber slices.
>"That's it? I think I should head to the supermarket today..."

//Hahaha, I was not expecting you to believe it was the Sukeban. Nevertheless, I'm not dickish enough to sic the Sukeban on you so often.

>You get into a fighting stance upon hearing the stranger's voice.
>You see that the new person is... definitely not a Sukeban. So you relax a bit as you lower your fists.
>"Ah, that's my landlady..." Nitori tells you as she goes to the (no longer attached) door.

>You see the landlady frowning and crossing her arms.
>"Kawashiro, care to explain what is going on here?"
