((OOC: This post follows this one.))
A well-dressed Japanese man walks up to the Ohtori Dojo, ringing the bell sharply once.
When it isn't answered after a few minutes, he rings the bell again, more insistently this time.
Shortly after Aaron disapears back up the stairs, Shun comes down them. "[Niisan, what is going on,]" asks Shun as he comes toward Ikki.
As he's facing the stairs, Kyoichi spots Shun before Ikki does. "[Good afternoon, Ohtori-kohai. It's been a while.]" Again, the tight smile that doesn't quite reach his eyes. "[You look well. It seems America agrees with you.]"
Shun does not smile, but he makes an effor to retain a non-hostile expression. "[Thank you, Kyoichi-sempai. I see you are as polite as ever.]"
Kyoichi nods, apparently either oblivious to Shun's remark or willing to let things slide for now. "[The Court has sent me here on an important mission - we must talk.]" He pauses, looking meaningfully at the stairs Aaron went up. "[Alone.]"
"[Later,]" Ikki replies. "[After all, we have a guest. It would be impolite to just ask him to leave.]"
Shun waits for Kyoichi's response, hoping he'll go away before the cute pizza guy arrives.
Kyoichi looks as if he's swallowed something bad-tasting, but he does acquiesce. "[Very well.]" He hands Ikki a business card. "[My cellular number is on that, and I've also included the number of my hotel on the back.]" Pause. "[You will call once you no longer have guests, ne?]" His tone indicates that he fully expects Ikki to answer in the affirmative.
Ikki nods, secretly hoping that will satisfy Kyoichi enough to get him to leave.
Kyoichi gives the Ohtori brothers a stiff bow. "[Until later, then.]"
He strides off toward the other end of the street.
Shun gives his brother a smile, then calls up the stairs, "Aaron, creepy guy is gone and the pizza guy is pulling up!"
