“I never thought of doing that.” The hobo spun around. The husky voice came from the shadows in the corner. “There’s a fireplace over here but I didn’t know if I could trust the chimney.”

The hobo grunted, weighed the threat and turned back to the fire. In the dark corner a pile of heavy velvet window drapes moved. From where she had been sleeping beneath them a woman, dark and burly, evidently homeless and possibly crazy and thick with desire for light and fire, eyed the stranger.
