Hakuba was pleased to be trusted with as much information as he’d been given already, and while he was curious, he felt assured that he would know all of the details — in time. He wanted to gain Shinichi’s favor, and that sort of thing only came with time. Especially with such an experienced detective. Anything other than positive encounters built over time would be suspicious, if not outright cast out. No; Hakuba wanted to be more than a passing acquaintance and colleague. So he would be patient, and wait.
