The Pen & Highlighter It was a small, comfortable room with two windows. The front one looked out onto the graveyard, the other to a little garden at the side. The large black range stood solidly in an alcove in the back wall, a thick dark pipe curving its way upward through the ceiling. Stretched out beneath the side window were a few shelves filled with books, old newspapers and odds and ends and by the front window stood a heavy wooden table with two chairs below. The flagstone floor was covered in a crimson, green and brown rug. Willie glanced at the armchair by the range and the objects that lay on top of the small wooden table; a pipe, a book and a baccy jar.
