[ Note from Dave: my prompt to the Bot this time - 'write the continuation of their conversation, introducing a new character who may be able to help them' ]

Just then, a voice called out from the street below. "John? Is that you?"

John and Mayu looked down to see an elderly man standing in the street. Mayu recognized him as one of her father's friends, a retired lawyer.

John and Mayu went down to the street to greet him. "What are you doing here?" asked Mayu.

The old man smiled. "I heard about your visa problem, and I thought I might be able to help," he said. "My wife and I have been living in Tokyo for the past fifty years, and we know a lot of people in high places. I'm sure I can pull a few strings, if you'd like."

John and Mayu exchanged a look of hope, then nodded. "Yes, please," said John. "Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated."

The old man smiled again and clapped John on the back. "Don't worry," he said. "We'll get you sorted out in no time."
