Today we meet an old acquaintance of Simon, Ivan Bombus. Ivan has been running the only flower shop in Fairview for as long as anyone can remember. Although Simon and him go back a long way, it’s not all roses between these two. In fact, if Simon had his way, Ivan Bombus would be pushing up daisies by now.

Let me know what you think in the comments below!
