#BnS 78: The Hawthorne Project - Part V
As you sit in your bed surrounded by tissues, of both the new and used variety, your laptop pings, you look around frantically trying to locate it in the sea of white.
“Got ya.” You say, well whisper hoarsely, as your voice has obviously found somewhere else it would rather be.
You reach for the laptop and fall promptly onto the floor, your balance seems to have relocated to sunnier climes as well.
“I wish this stinking cold would go away.” You think to yourself as you carefully maneuver yourself into a somewhat vertical position.
“Still, at least I can still work from home.” Is the next thought that enters your mucus filled brain. “What did we do before the internet?”
The email was, as expected, from The Hawthorne Project, detailing your next client.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your family, if appropriate, and why you are applying to The Hawthorne Project.
My name is Edith Moskowitz and I'm writing on behalf of a young teen-aged girl that has earned my utmost admiration; My women's group has sponsored three orphaned refugees and collected the funds to bring them here. We've found homes for each of them, but the eldest, Rima, is unconsolable that she might be separated from her brother and sister, and we can't find anyone that can take all three. She's convinced she can do it on her own. She's a very responsible girl and has a very convincing plan on how to support her family. We've found a local coffee shop that will sell her paintings and a farmer's market that will buy anything she can grow. Her little brother, Joram, is even offering to catch fish for the local fishmonger. The women's group will provide day care so that Rima can continue with her schooling. I really think they have a very good chance and it would break my heart to disappoint them after all they've been through.
Tell us about your ideal home space:
They need a home that wouldn't be impossible for them to financially maintain, so nothing too fancy. Rima insists that they can all share a bedroom, but I think they should have at least two, and a bathtub for the toddler. They'd obviously need a place to cook and share family meals, toys and activities for the little ones, books, and an easel and garden for income. They'd also need a place to play and share family time. It should be cheerful and homey so that they feel safe and comfortable, and although the poor dears are very grateful to be here, they are homesick, so at least a touch of the Middle East in the architecture or decorations would be wonderful.
“Such a sad tale.” You think to yourself. “I’m so pleased that they were selected, they deserve somewhere lovely to live.”
