Juliette made a face at the question. “It’s a house that I live in, not much else I can say,” she answered simply. She was never fond of moving around and staying in houses that weren’t her home but what choice did she have?
As they reached the door, Juliette made a gesture to open it but before she could put her hand on the handle the door swung open. “Oh, you’re back from your trip, miss!” The woman who opened the door cheered. She was rather short with brown hair and brown eyes, almost mousy looking. She was wearing a common maid’s outfit with a duffel bag thrown over her shoulder.
Juliette grinned at the woman. “Off for the day?” She chirped back. The woman nodded then proceeded to carry on out the door with a little kick in her step. Juliette gently pushed Alicia through the door and followed after her. Once they were inside and the door was closed, Katherine took Juliette’s jacket to hang it on the coat rack. She gestured to take Alicia’s coat.
“Oh my, I completely forgot,” Juliette gasped. “I hope you’re not allergic to cats.” She was looking to the room to the right. The interior of the house almost matched the exterior with dark wood floors and white walls. The surroundings were pristine clean, like there wasn’t a speck of dust on the floor. Off to the left was the staircase, the banister was a fancy design and swirls and flowers that matched the wood of the floor. To the right, the living was set with a white couch and luxurious looking throws and pillows. A large fireplace faced the couch with a flatscreen hanging above it.
