"I walk a lonely road

The only one that I have ever known

Don't know where it goes, but I know

It's only me and I walk alone."

"Has anyone seen YoYo?" Corn asked, slightly worried about the little guy.

"No, no one has seen him for hours. Three and a half hours, to be exact. I honestly don't think he could have gotten that far away, and besides he left his wallet in his room," Sapphire replied.

"Why were you in his room? Never mind that, like we seriously got the time to deal with your snooping issues," Gum said. "Let's just hope for his sake and the sake of everyone else that he did not get himself captured again."

"Ok, good point. I'll give you cred for that one. But, in all seriousness, who in the right mind would try to capture YoYo? Gouji has been defeated for a couple of months and no one has been trying to fight us ever since we defeated him," Nickel said.

"Right, but where in Tokyo-to could he possibly be?" Corn asked, but stopped after he heard his cell phone was ringing. It was YoYo. "Hey guys, it's him. YoYo, where in Tokyo-to are you? We are all starting to get really worried. You haven't been captured again, have you?"

"No, I just needed some time to be alone. Please do not come after me. I just need some time alone so I can think about the events of the last few months. You guys don't know how hard these last few months have been on me. But, because you are like family to me, I'll tell you where I'm at. I'm on Daotso Street. You know where that is, right? Well, if you don't, here I'll tell you. Go to Chuo Street & when you reach the sewer, turn right. You'll be on Daotso Street when you pass the 'blocked road' signs."

"Hey, that was YoYo. He's on Daotso Street. Do NOT go and look for him. He needs to be left alone. Where in the world is Beat?" Corn asked.

"You know Beat. He doesn't want anything to happen to the little guy. YoYo's like his little brother. If anything would happen to him, Beat would totally go off the deep end. Remember, when YoYo was captured by the Golden Rhinos, Beat almost committed suicide. I really don't want that to happen again, and I will do anything in my power to make sure that does not happen again," Rhyth said.

"Same here," Gum, Sapphire, Aya, and Nickel replied unanimously.

"Fine, but try not to get yourselves in any trouble by helping. Respect YoYo's wishes and only let Beat go after him. Sapphire, take Rhyth and Nickel with you to go get some sushi on Chuo Street. Aya and Gum, you two go shopping there. Call me if you guys see absolutely anything," Corn said.

"YoYo, where are you?" Beat asked.

"Beat, is that you? Why did you come after me?" YoYo responded with a couple of questions.

"YoYo, there is nothing in this world that could possibly make me not find someone who feels like family," Beat said, emotionally.

"Oh, thanks. It's just you, right?" YoYo responded.

"Of course, but you know Corn, Rhyth, and Sapphire. They probably have two groups on Chuo Street, just waiting for us to go back that way. But, I know that there is, thankfully, a way to go to 99th Street via here," Beat said.

"There is?" YoYo asked.

"Yeah. This road hooks up to Highway Zero," Beat replied.

"So what in the world are you waiting for? An invitation?" YoYo asked.

"You, to let me know that we can head back to the garage," Beat replied.
