Overview

"I WAS passing through the waiting-room of the Morning Journal on a certain evening last year when my attention was drawn to a man seated in a corner. He was dressed in black and his appearance was that of the deepest dejection. In fact upon his face I read the most melancholy despair.

He had placed upon his knees a small oaken chest, ornamented with ironwork. His hands were crossed over this object and hung down, accentuating his dejected appearance."

-Exerpted from  "The Double Life"

Padded in, sniffing around. The place was warm: good for patients. She rubbed a paw against the rim of a nest and watched dust release into the air. "This place has been abandoned for a while," she said aloud, looking around. She took a nest in her teeth and dragged it outside, swinging her head side to side. After refreshing the beds, she looked at the hollows in the earth that were supposed to hold herbs. The snow swirled outside. "Can't collect herbs now. Better wait until morning." She curled up in her bracken nest.
