The Deliverator floors it and takes a shortcut through The Mews at Windsor Heights, a Burbclave. He knows every neighborhood from his delivery work, so this should be easy, right?
Wrong. The first problem is that he picks up an unwanted hitchhiker: a Kourier on a skateboard. Using high-tech harpoon technology, the Kourier has latched onto the Deliverator's car and is snagging a ride.
Despite his attempts to shake the Kourier, the skateboard-leech stays put. Distracted, the Deliverator forgets the layout of the neighborhood and drives his car into an empty swimming pool. Epic fail.
Instead of taking off, the Kourier asks Hiro—no longer the Deliverator, because seriously, he just crashed a delivery car belonging to the Mafia—where the pizza's going.
Hiro tells her the destination and hands her his business card (Hiro Protagonist: freelance hacker, greatest sword fighter in the world). The Kourier introduces herself as Y.T. and skates out of the swimming pool toward her destination.
As lights turn on in the house with the car in its pool, Hiro has a few seconds to plan his escape before security arrives, and hope like hell that the Mafia won't kill him for this.
