Poe walked casually through Borders, stopping suddenly when he saw his friend sitting on a bench below the stairs. After some debate, he turned around and took another aisle further to the left, squatting somewhat. Poe just wanted to read The World Without Us; uninterrupted by the idle chatter over young men Kay would initiate with Poe if he was spotted. So Poe proceeded to the second floor via the elevator, avoiding a inevitable confrontation at the stairs. After ordering a ridiculously expensive mocha, Poe looked down at his friend in the self-help section--silently wishing him well.
