Goodie and the crow Avarice investigated the inside of the cabin as Pol and Castor secured the wagon and the oxen outside. There was a small lean-to built against the cabin that served their purposes.
Goodie found a small oil lamp just inside the door and used her flint and steel to strike a spark, lighting the lamp’s wick. The lamp’s light illuminated the cabin’s neat and furnished interior and Goodie quickly realized this cabin was not abandoned.
“Pol! Castor!” She yelled over the sound of the building wind. “This place isn’t abandoned! Someone lives here!”
“Lives here!” Avarice mimicked.
