Honey NB
HONEY’S HOUSE WAS FARTHER OUT THAN ADAM’S AND mine. It was maybe a little bit bigger.
Honey’s house was stucco, as most upscale houses in the Tri-Cities are. In the dark, it looked white, but I knew that it was a pale shade of gray set off with dark gray trim. The rear-porch lights were on, so I led our procession to the back door into a mudroom.

I started toward the living room but heard noise upstairs; it sounded like cheering.
The whole upper floor of Honey’s house was one room. She and Peter had used it for parties, but one wall was set up with a projection screen so it could be used as a theater.

There’s a bathroom off the bedroom you’ll be in, and we’ll fill this with water there.”

Adam and I got the formal living room. Jesse opted into the giant upstairs room

Down the hall, third bedroom on the left

The room was one of those bedrooms that builders throw into huge houses because they know the kids aren’t going to get a vote about what house their parents buy. Honey’s house was huge. This bedroom was maybe ten feet by nine feet. Just big enough for a twin bed and a chest of drawers. I hadn’t seen Honey’s suite, but I was sure that it wasn’t ten feet by nine feet.

Honey didn’t have a table big enough to seat the whole pack

Honey’s suite was a bedroom, office, and bathroom, all done in shades of cool gray. It surprised me until I remembered that this had been Peter’s room, too. The gray suited the man he’d been.

Zee | Non-Reservation House Details

Location: Kennewick, WA FB-198
  • a small Victorian nestled in a small cluster of houses
  • the house needed paint and a little work on the porch; the yard was tiny; both were surrounded by a wrought-iron fence that was suitably elaborate for an iron-kissed fae's home
  • back door has a fancy brass knob
  • 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 built-in bookcases filled with paperback books
  • a handmade rug softened the hardwood floor
  • to the right from living room, a door opened to an eat-in kitchen that had a 1950s-style table for two that had passed shabby and hit antique
  • on the wall next to the table was Zee's wedding picture
  • there are typically Victorian narrow and steep stairs to the second story
  • down the hall next to the bathroom was a half door-two feet wide by three feet tall with a white milk glass knob, that typically would have hidden a linen closet or a dumb-waiter; hides dark wooden stairs that were even narrower and steeper than the ones to the second floor; they twisted as they rose so they took up only the same amount of room as the narrow linen closet had; four steps
  • the warded room was narrow and long, wide enough, if barely, for three people to stand shoulder to shoulder; the floor carpeted with layers of Persian rugs that were worth a not-so-small fortune
  • 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
  • books, and there were a lot of them, were piled on the floor won the other side of the room; the wall directly across from the doorway they'd entered was entirely covered by an enormous mirror
