Please come through to the fitting room where she can try it on. What about some nice modern shoes as well to go with it.’

I will send for Mr Stark what size are you dear?

“I’m a size four replied Abigail.’

“Please take a seat I will be with you as soon as I can.’

“How am I to pay for this Muriel I haven’t any money.’

“It is my Christmas gift to you Abigail.’

“We should get something for your mother shouldn’t we?’

“Yes mother would like that.’

“Well you can give it to her on Christmas Eve so what do you think we should buy her?’

“She loves her hats.’



The looked at all the hats on display and Abigail picked out a nice tanned coloured one with a yellow sash around it.’

That is nice; your mother will love it.’

“Do you think so?’

“Yes definitely.’

Christine returned with a bright yellow sequined dress with tassels on it and when Mr Stark had bought her a pair of white shoes to go with them she stood and turned around. Very nice Abigail but there’s one thing missing.’

“A hat Muriel’

“No a visit to Elmore’s to get you a modern hair style.’

“My mother will go crazy if I cut my hair.’

“No, she won’t come on.’

“We are just going to Elmore’s Beauty Salon Tomkins; have yourself another cigarette outside of the car.’

“Thank you Miss Marshbanks.’

They crossed the road to the salon and went inside.

“Ah Miss Marshbanks how are you?’

“I’m fine thank you; I would like you to cut my Cousin’s hair in a modern style please.’

“Don’t you think that she is a bit young for a modern style?’

“No I do not.’

“Aright but we do not accept responsibility once it is cut.’

“What do you say Abigail; do we cut or not?’

Abigail laughed and said cut.’

“The lady in the salon sat the girl down who had long blonde curls and took hold of six inches of it and began to snip away.

Abigail giggled away as the woman cut off more and more of her hair.

It was just like her own when it was done and the girl in the shop put a white band around it which made her new style look even better.’

“Well what do you think Muriel she said as she stood up?’

“I think you look very grown up.’

“Do I really?’

“Yes you do, just wait until Tomkins sees you.’

They paid the stylist then crossed the road together and Tomkins was again totally shocked as he saw Abigail. She twirled around and asked him what he thought of her new look.’
