She stepped in during the afternoon break, looking around with narrowed eyes. A large tabby looked up at her. "Mrrr" it said quizzically. The lady looked down with ice blue eyes that matched her outfit. "I guess the rumors are true, Graupel," she replied. The cat nodded and made its own way into the room to go curl by the fire as his mistress decided what to do. There had been some cleaning but still dust lay everywhere and probably would be for a month as the place slowly came back to it's former self. But it was back. Home. Well as much a home as she had ever had at times. It had been a safe space to come to. To recover from the road. To have a laugh, sing a song. But mostly to relax. She gave a sigh that said that she was glad to be back to a place she thought gone forever.
She wandered around the room, touching this spot on the wall, that place on the counter, memories coming back from the deep recesses. She paused by the counter and pulled out a small glass vial with a dropper. 'Squirrel eye drops', she thought with a smile playing at her lips and she placed the tiny bottle on it's old spot and knew the world was one step closer to be right again. Finally, she made her way to the fire. "Hi again," she said to those already there, "is there any coffee left?"
