Summary: In which Aoko and Ran rejoin the group at the police station. Meanwhile, Shinichi and Kaito talk about a potential break in. Prison!AU
They choose to head to Shinjuku - it’s a shorter distance to travel to from Chiyoda, and Kaito argues that the sooner they arrive at the safe house, the sooner they can come up with a plan that will get them inside the police station.
“We need to take out time coming up with this plan,” Shinichi says, when the leave behind a convenient store, bento’s and snacks in a plastic bag. “I don’t want to go into this half-heartedly.”
Kaito hums, looks at the ex-detective and decides that yes, it would be stupid to go into this without a plan. But he also thinks that waiting is a stupid idea.
“Tomorrow,” Kaito says, “we’ll head in tomorrow.”
Shinichi balks, catches him by his arm and pulls him back. “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
