Nita, or whoever waited on the counter, between waitings lurked in a back living-room
that was heated.
The door opened directly into a large living-room, where by a cheery little fire sat two other ladies, both of whom were also grim and ancient.
Besides the big living-room, there was a kitchen and a small bedroom downstairs.
From the hangings and sumptuous furniture of the room I judged it to be a living-room
of some priestess, possibly of Issus herself.
He rang the bell, a door opened, and we stepped into a paved way and then up into a small living-room
, where we were received by a hearty and good-natured German woman of fifty.
Even my elderly neighbor who lives in the apartment next to mine manages to keep her living-room
space neat and tidy, even when her weekly cleaner has not been to her home for several days.
