Final Fantasy 7 - The Sentry Objective CHAPTER 3 - New Information
Back in the
Seventh Heaven bar, Marlene was trying her best to attend to the
customers on her own. A couple of them looked at her funny, which
made her uncomfortable. She felt even more uncomfortable when the
three Shinra guards from outside entered the bar. They sat down
and requested drinks.
As Marlene began
making them, she thought of something. They requested some
liquor, but not too hard so theyd stay awake and ready. She
made them all hard drinks. Really hard drinks. Hopefully
it would make them lose their edge a little, and then she could
let Zymon out safely.
They drank up
easily, and ordered another round. Marlene added a little squirt
of Tiipilo wine. Tiipilo juice was had natural alcohol, and was
unbelievably strong when fermented into wine. It could outdo any
liquor she gave them. They drank up, luckily not noticing the
slight tang the Tiipilo should have added.
She repeated this
little process six times in a row. The guards were beginning to
act jolly, laughing uncontrollably at even the most ridiculous
things. One of them tried to stand up on the bar counter, but
Marlene shoved him off. He landed on the ground with a loud
thump. He had the wind knocked out of him, and he was still
trying his hardest to laugh. His face turned purple from the lack
of air, and the other two found that absolutely hysterical.
Marlene, in the
meantime, was a little confused. They had taken in an equivalent
of 30 shots of whiskey! Why hadnt they even fainted, when
they should technically be dead? Although they hadnt
ordered another round, and were in fact too drunk to do so,
Marlene made them one more batch, hoping it would put them down
for the rest of the day. After that round, they were all becoming
delirious, and had all removed their helmets, and upper armor.
They were sweaty, obnoxious, and STILL AWAKE! WHY? HOW COULD THEY
STILL BE AWAKE?? Better yet, how could they still be ALIVE??
of the guards hit head full force on the counter, and was out
cold. Standing behind him was a customer, whod obviously
grown irritated with them. The other two guards began chuckling,
and playing with their comrades unconscious head.
The customer did
the same to the last two guards. All three were out like lights,
sure to stay like that for several more hours.
thank you! Marlene said, with a sigh of relief.
pleasure, believe me... the man said.
About four hours
ticked by. Nothing had happened since Zymon began hiding in the
hidden level of the Seventh Heaven. He was watching the TV,
trying his best not to nod off. No news about the reactors
detonation as of yet. Just some report about repairing a huge
crack in the Sector 7 pillar. He heard three loud thumps from
above earlier, but thought nothing of it. Why hadnt anyone
come back? Why hadnt he heard Barrets gun-arm blazing
at a victory, or just for kicking people out? Were they dead??
twiddling with a pocketknife someone left on the floor out of
boredom. Another twenty minutes few by while he did his best to
entertain himself. Marlene would know when the time was right. He
knew that. But was she okay? Suddenly that thought led to
wondering if the guards had gone into his house yet and found the
soldiers hed killed. He was letting his thoughts betray him
again, running through his head violent scenes of Marlene being
killed, Tifa being killed, and soldiers blitzing the Seventh
Heaven. Tension was building inside him. Dammit, Zymon! Stop
doing this to yourself!
Suddenly a loud
clank sound went off from the hidden platform, and the pinball
machine lowered, with Marlene standing on the platform. Zymon
calmed down almost immediately, and leaned his head back. Sorry!
she said. I had to wait until all the customers were gone!
alright. Did any guards come in? he asked.
actually. Theyre all knocked out. She smiled. So
you can leave safely now! Theyll be like that for a long
time, with the drinks I gave them.
his guns and envelope. They went back up to the bar, and he left.
Outside, he was
groggy, and still nervous. Someone was knocking hard at his
materia shop door, yelling his name loudly. He was wearing an
undershirt and tattered old pants. He had two machetes latched on
either side of his waist. At once, he knew exactly who this was.
Zymon walked up
behind him and tapped him. Twitchy, the man jerked around,
startled and sweating. He let out a loud gasp. After the initial
shock, he was panting breathlessly, and was extremely scared of
There you are! he said, nearly out of breath. I
wondered if youd been taken by Shinra soldiers! Youve
got two dead ones in your house!
I killed them, he said.
well, they probably werent looking for you.
There were there five of them here earlier
were stationed to keep everyone inside Sector 7.

hand. He opened it and took out a black and white photograph. It
was a model of Midgar taken made at Shinras headquarters.

a little while...

He looked down at
it for a moment, and brought his head back up. The upper
plates been lowered!

looked up. In the slight distance, he could see helicopters
circling the tower searchlights blaring. There was a cover
story that they were repairing a crack! he said.
you ought to know bullshit when you hear it!
