 +  * Like the house, the dining room was small but pretty. The floor was oak, antiqued with a white wash that made the room feel bigger than it was. On one side of the room was a brick fireplace. Family photographs covered most of the surface of the mantelpiece. Children and grandchildren, and none of them related to Andre<sup>281</sup>
 +  * the kitchen was surprisingly big for the size of the house. Someone had painted the wooden cabinets white, then toll-painted flowers and vines all over. The window over the sink was covered with dark green garbage sacks sealed with duct tape so no light would get through<sup>281</sup>
 +  * the basement was a very deep hole dug into the dirt to allow access to the plumbing under the house. There were a few old shelves leaned up against a foundation wall, and some fencing materials. On the other side of the room was a canopy bed straight out of a bodice-ripper romance<sup>283</sup>

 +[[Night Broken]] 
 +  Wulfe's house was in a housing development that had been an orchard ten years ago. The houses in this one almost escaped that “we were all designed by the same architect and you can pick one of three house plans” sameness. It had been in place long enough for hedges and greenery, but not quite long enough for big trees.  
 +  * The neighborhood was firmly middle-class, with mobile basketball hoops in front of the garage doors in driveways and swing sets in the backyards. The people who lived right next door to Wulfe had a giant cedar kid’s activity center—it was way too huge to be merely a swing set—and an aboveground swimming pool in their side yard. The side yard right next to Wulfe’s house<sup>264</sup>  
 +  * Though it looked spotlessly clean, the interior of the house smelled<sup>265</sup> 
 +  * 1950s chrome and green Formica kitchen tables. There were three chairs that matched the table: two of them were knocked over, and the third was tucked in where it belonged on the side of the table<sup>266</sup>  
 +  * The light over the dining-room table was on, and someone had put daylight bulbs in the fixture because the tabletop looked more like an operating table than a place people might sit down and eat breakfast<sup>266</sup>

 +[[Frost Burned]] 
 +  Less than a mile from Kennewick High School, a small Victorian<sup>198</sup> 
 +  * House needed paint and a little work on the porch. The yard was tiny<sup>198</sup> 
 +  * House and yard were surrounded by a wrought-iron fence that was suitably elaborate for an iron-kissed fae's home<sup>198</sup> 
 +  * Furnished sparsely and none-too-fancily despite its Victorian appointments, which included the original light fixtures and fine woodwork. The living room had a matching couch and love seat that were comfortably worn. A small flat-screen TV adorned the wall between two build-in bookcases filled with paperback books. A handmade rug softened the hardwood floor<sup>198</sup> 
 +  * To the right, a door opened to an eat-in kitchen that had a 1950's-style table for two that had passed shabby and hit antique. On the wall next to the table was a large photo of a serious, young-looking man who looked a lot like Tad. The man was dressed in a suit and standing next to a good-looking woman in a wedding dress with her brown hair in a poofy style common a couple of decades ago<sup>198</sup> 
 +  * Typically Victorian narrow and steep stairs to the second story and from there to a hallway. At the end of the hall was a half door- two feet wide by three feet tall, the kind of door that would have hidden a linen closet or a dumbwaiter<sup>199</sup> 
 +  * The room was narrow and long, wide enough, if barely, for three people to stand shoulder to shoulder. The floor was carpeted with layers of Persian rugs that were worth a not-so-small fortune<sup>203</sup> 
 +  * Unmatched bookcases lined the wall on one of the long ways of the room, ranging from hand-carved museum pieces to boards separated by cinder blocks. The top two shelves of each held a selection of unpainted metal toys. The rest of the shelves were filled with various sharp=bladed weapons. The books, and there were a lot of them, were piled on the floor on the other side of the room. The wall directly across from the doorway was entirely covered by an enormous mirror<sup>203</sup>
