Crow lives with Pax and Fonda above the community shop.
On the first floor
is a sort of convenience store with everthing from food to clothing to
home-living nesecities to odd imports from other cities and countries.
If it’s useful, it’s at Fonda’s. The atmosphere is very warm (as in
iviting) and Fonda goes out of her way to decorate the shop with nice
things such as dried flowers/plants and painted walls.
Up a set of
creaky wooden stairs is the living quarters. There is a
kitchenette/common area which is small and homey. It features a low
table with a vase on it. You can sit on the floor at the table to eat or
read or anything. Fonda’s place is not airconditioned or heated, so
there is a fire place here, which is used frequently during winter
nights. They are fortunate enough to be able to afford to burn wood for
heat, but Fonda will not burn it unless there are more people there
other than her, Pax and Crow. This common area is frequented by the sick
and needy. It smells of clay.
There are two rooms, one shared between
Pax and Fonda and the other, smaller room belongs to Crow. Crow’s room
always has the windows open and the door-sheet drawn open. He keeps it
clean and tidey, has a normal-looking bed with sheets he tucks in in the
mornings. His bed is against the wall with no window, with the head
against the wall that has a window that opens up to the street. From his
window he can lean out and see The Shop down the street.
His room was
decorated by Fonda, and on the walls are small paintings in frames,
mostly of desert flowers and oases. Crow enjoys them, though he would
not have picked them out on his own. Crow has a chest at the foot of his
bed that he keeps his medical equipment in, unlocked and always at the
ready to help someone who is brought into Fonda’s shop. Under his bed is
a box of vials and bottles that have different kinds of medicines, most
of them being anti-venoms used against various snakes and scorpions
that frequent the desert.
His floor is clay, though the common room has a
thresh mat. It’s dusty in the corners but he tries to sweep out what he
can for the most part. His window has an awning that provides further
shade while allowing the breeze through. He has a dresser under the
window for his clothing and on top keeps several books that he reads
over and over. Crow likes to keep to his room in his free time, but
between helping Fonda with the shop, chores, spending time with Pax, and
healing the sick and wounded, Crow does not have much time to himself.
Crow’s favorite place is his room when he is undisturbed.
