Blaine panted. “I—I’m allergic to bees.”
“They’re wasps,” Danny reassured him with a hearty slap on the back.
Blaine straightened, hacking. “Oh.”
The inside of the decrepit old house was even less impressive than the outside. The hum of wasps was muted, but several of the tiny creatures lingered in the air around them. They weren’t the only inhabitants. Flies lined the edges of the living room windows above a moldering couch missing one leg and—oh, how about that? A stripped animal carcass sat in one corner of the room by what appeared to be the kitchen. Rib bones stuck up like claws, sharp and white. A mandible lay discarded a few feet away.
Besides the dim glow coming through the cloudy windows, light crept in through a large hole in the floor that seemed to run through the home’s foundation and out the other side. Scraps of cloth and garbage and dead leaves lined the ground. A den, probably. Former den, if they were lucky, or else some coyotes were going to be extremely annoyed by their presence here.
Paper crunched underfoot, stiff from age, ink blurred beyond recognition.
Despite the obvious state of disrepair, the home still contained an array of furniture coated in dust and grime, and most of the windows seemed to be intact. Only a slight breeze slipped through the house. Aside from the gaping hole in the foundation where wild animals had dragged the rotting carcasses of their kills inside, the place wasn’t really so bad. A fixer-upper, but Nix could see its potential. She eyed Danny, wondering if he was thinking the same thing. The man did love a good fixer-upper.
Nix found her hand grasped in Rachel’s. Rachel didn’t seem to notice. Not that it was awkward, or anything, but Nix was slightly confused by the offered comfort. Callie’s fingers were stiff and frozen in Rachel’s warm hand. Perhaps she was feeling guilty. About time.
