As you put some books away on a shelf in the bookstore you run, you wonder if he will be visiting this time again. You worked next door to Seventh Heaven and lived in the apartment upstairs, so when you clear out the rubbish in the back you sometimes see Tifa out there too. Because of this, you and Tifa have become good friends and you often go to Seventh Heaven to have a drink or two.
It all really started when Marlene visited with Denzel in tow and wanted to borrow a book. As she was Tifa’s friend, you allowed her to read books at your store and you had even bought some bean bag chairs and cushions for her to sprawl on while she and Denzel read. It had soon become a regular thing so Barret would leave her with you some days and collect her after his work. On a couple of those days, Cloud had come to get her if Barret was late as Tifa would but she would always be behind the bar. Even though they were only next door it was still a dangerous place.
