Chapter 1..: The Reunion
I walked around in Midgar to visit an old friend Tifa Lockheart. I looked around for the bar called 7th Heaven. Tifa had told her how she had to walk to get there. How has it been 2 or 3 years I don't remember. I remember we had Martial Arts together. I giggled softly. Then I walked further and saw the sign with: 7th Heaven. I took a deep breath and I thought: 'Here we go'. So I walked in and saw a few people and two animals sitting in here. And a woman behind the bar. So I walked to her. I knew it was Tifa. Tifa turned around and said: "Hello and welcome how can I....". And she stopped talking. Then she smiled and opens her arms. "Rika I'm so glad you made it". Tifa said happily. I hugged her tight. "I'm glad I'm here". Tifa's friends were looking confussed. Tifa and I saw that and we laughed. "Okay guys this is Rika we both are childhood friends and had lessons together in Martial Arts". Tifa told them. "Nice to meet you all". I said smiling. They all greeted me in ther own way. "Come Rika and sit down". Tifa said. I nodded. So I sat down. I looked around. "Tifa". I called out to her. "Mmmm". Tifa mumbled. "Is it alright if I spend the night her for only tonight and then I will look for a room around here". Tifa looked at me if I was crazy. "Are you crazy? You aren't going to sleep in a room somewhere". Tifa yelled. "You are going to sleep here". And she crossed her arms. I laughed. "Okay okay don't upset yourself girl". I put up my hands. Tifa laughed too. Everyone looked amused at us. Vincent then asked me: "How do you two know eachother so well". I turned to the person that talked at me. "Who are you?". I asked and I observed him. It was a tall man with red eyes and long black hair. He wears a black leather suit and a red cape. And wears a gunholster on his leg with his gun in it. "I'm Vincent". He said to me. "Okay Vincent well my name is Rika but the answer on you question is". I looked at Tifa and smiled. Tifa nodded to me and smiled.
"We know eachother since we both lived in Nibelhiem we were very good friends". I looked out of the window. "Back then we had Martial Arts lessons and we had the same teacher so our friendship grew stronger but the because of the fight we broke apart but we held contact and now I'm here". Tifa puts her arms around my shoulders. I smiled. "I'm so happy that you are here". Tifa said. I nodded. "Yeah I'm happy too". And I smiled too. Then I looked out of the window and looked outside. "Oh Tifa I shall help you to run you bar while I'm staying here". I said smiling at her. Tifa looked shocked. "Are you fricking crazy!". She yelled at me. "Yes I know I'm crazy but fricking crazy, No". I said without any emotion. Then Tifa laughed. "Okay I know you won't back down so you can help me". I smiled happily. "Yes I won". And I threw up my hands. Tifa laughed hard and the rest looked amused at out childlish act. "You haven't changed at all girl". Tifa laughed while saying it. "You didn't either Teef". I said smirking. "Okay girl where can I put my stuff?". I asked. ''Uhm okay walk upstairs and the second door on your right". Tifa told. I nodded and grabbed my stuff and walked to the room Tifa told me. When I walked inside I had a view on the city. I unpacked my things when someone suddenly knocked on my door. "Come in". I said. Then a little girl came in and she was nervous. I could tell. "What do you need?". I asked and smiled softly. "Uhm I was wondering if I could help you". She told me shyly. "You can help me but first i want to know your name". I said softly. "Uhm I'm Marlene". She looked down. I jumped up and took her small hands. "Okay come you can put my things away". Marlene smiled and helped me. We had fun and you could hear our laughter through the whole house. Downstairs everyone was amused at how they could hear our laughter.
Marlene and I were really having fun. Then Tifa called. "Rika, Marlene would you two come down please". I looked at Marlene and she nodded. I laughed softly. "Okay we're coming". I shouted. So Marlene and I skipped happily downstairs. When we came down everyone looked amused at us. Marlene and I looked first confussed at them then to eachother then back to them. Soon the most of them laughed very loud at how we acted. And more the reason to be more confussed. I shrugged my shoulders. Then I looked at Tifa. "Okay Teef why are we called cayse Marlene and I were having fun". I snickerd and slightly pouted and Marlene giggled. Vincent thought about how I reacted. 'That was cute how she pouted, wait what am I thinking'. He thought. 'You like her'. Chaos said in his head. 'Ow shut up Chaos, I don't need your comment'. Vincent said back to Chaos. Then Chaos chuckled. 'But you have to admit that you...'. Vincent then interupted. 'Stop it and go back to the darkesst corner of my head and stay there'. Chaos snickerd once more and then left. When I looked out of the window I suddenly out of the middle of nowewhere said: "Vincent you have a demon inside you and it was annoying you". Vincent looked at me startled and the rest looked shocked. "How how did you know that". Vincent asked. I looked at Vincent. "Uhm did I told you that. Uhm I don't know". I was looking very confussed. Tifa walked up to me and put a hand on my shoulder. "Yes you told us that". She said. I was really confussed. "I really don't know Teef I really don't know". I said. Everyone looked very strang at me. Then a man with blond spikey hair and blue eyes said unbelieving. "How could you not know you just said it". I was really confussed I didn't get it all.
I was slowly walking backwards and was a bit scared. "Enough, Rika is getting scared and I see in her eyes that she really doesn't know". Tifa said. I was feeling really uncomfortable. Soon everyone except Vincent said an apology. "Teef I'm going out for a bit okay". I said. Tifa looked at me worried. "Are you alright girl?". She asked. I nodded. "I just need some fresh air and if I'm lost I'll call". I said softly. "Okay then go but promise me if something is wrong call me". Tifa said. "I will Teef well then I'll be going out then". I said softly. I walked to the room I would be sleeping and grabbed my coat and said a quick goodbye and walked out of the door. Tifa looked worried at me and then angry at the rest. Yuffie said: " What Teef why so angry". Tifa inhaled a lot of air before speaking. "Cause Rika thinks she has done something really wrong and feels guilty without even knowing why". Tifa said angry. Tifa then go further with doing the dishes and the rest with what they were doing. Vincent was still looking at the door.
