You quickly begin to weave your way through the crowd of people who you're preeeetty sure are costumed, Caleb Peko in your sights! You follow as he hustles away from the crowds and darts around a corner, and suddenly...

You find yourself on an empty street, surrounded by shops and -

Oh? There's a shop that bears a large decorative sign that reads 'REPORT CRIMINAL ACTIVITY HERE! YOU THE PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER'. Across from it is what looks like a cafe with the sign 'Ecuary' above it. What does that mean?

A) Look in the criminal reporting area
B) Look in Ecuary

You enter the cafe Ecuary, and are immediately greeted by a strange short adorable bipedal creature with feet like a bear cub's paws, little winglike arms, and wide staring eyes.

You love it so much.

The creature, wearing a tiny apron that reads 'SPECIAL BOY', smiles up at you.

"Welcome!" It chirps. "Here Ecuary. Sit!" You feel your hand being grabbed by its soft little wing oh my god it's so soft it's like a baby angel and tugged on lightly by the bear, owl, cat, thing as it guides you to a table. "Sit and eat! I am Doorowl. Order!"

You sit down and realize this thing...Doorowl...is taking your order? You scan the inside of the cafe - You can't see Caleb Peko. Drat!! You picked the wrong area.

A) "Actually, I'm looking for someone."
B) "I already ate."
C) "Cookies. I want cookies."
D) "I just went into the wrong building, sorry."

As you stare at this good special boy, you find that you can't find it in your heart to turn him down. "Cookies. I want cookies." You say, to which the Doorowl smiles widely.

"Good choice! You are good taste. I get cookies! What -"

Screech, who had previously hidden itself further in your coat, pokes its head out lazily to yawn. The Doorowl yelps.

"New guest!! Sit, sit!" He chirps. Screech hisses and nestles further into your coat. Frustrated, the Doorowl trots a few steps away, grabs a stool, drags it over, and hops onto it to poke the Screech-shaped lump under your jacket.

"Siiiiit!" The Doorowl commands. Screech spits and crawls out of your coat - Woah, has Screech gotten bigger? - And sits down on its rump on the other end of the little table. You're reminded a bit of those pictures of cats and dogs sitting like people...The Door owl hops off the stool, scoots it back to its place in a corner next to a sign that says 'A SPECIAL LITTLE STOOL FOR A SPECIAL LITTLE BOY', and trots back to you.

"Sorry for inter-" He stops. "Int. Ter. Inter. Upt..." He seems frustrated, but shakes his tiny head indignantly. "Sorry for bad! Back to order. What cookies? We have on special the Dragonfly Macaroons and Snapperdoodles! Also Vanilla Puppypaws. Or get menu? I can get!"

A) Dragonfly Macaroons
B) Snapperdoodles 
C) Vanilla Puppypaws
D) "Can I see a menu?"

"The...." You think for a moment. "Dragonfly macaroons?"

The Doorowl chirps in delight.

"Yes, of course! I will get them for you, wait here!" And with that, he darts off, pushing open a small door built into a much larger door. And with that....you're alone.
