“Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm,” Yuffie hummed to herself as she looked at the boots in
her hand then looked around the store to see if anyone was watching.
When she didn’t notice anyone, Yuffie quickly took off her old boots and put
the new ones. She then replaced the old boots where the new ones had just
“Find anything?” the shopkeeper asked her as Yuffie started heading towards
“Naw, I didn’t. Sorry.”
“That’s alright, Miss. Plenty of people come in and don’t buy anything.”
“Yeah I guess so,” Yuffie said. “Well take care.”
“Alrighty, you take care too.” The shopkeeper then jumped over the counter,

“Rats?!? Eeeeeeeeeew, I’m gonna be sick,” Yuffie moaned. “Ok, ok. Me and
a couple of friends are staying at the inn, but everyone is out shopping so
I’ll let them know what happened when they get back, and I’ll pay you back
later,” Yuffie grin
