The past few days had been difficult for Sharon and honestly she just needed something to cheer her up. She climbed out of bed and got ready for the day. She walked into the living room and saw how bare it looked. It was getting closer to Christmas and there was still no tree in the living room. Her mom had been so busy lately with work and stuff that they hadn’t been able to decorate. Suddenly. An idea popped into her head. She would decorate the house for Christmas herself and surprise her mom when she got home. She ate a quick breakfast, slipped on her coat, and walked out the door towards the tree lot.
The walk into town wasn’t a long one and it actually wasn’t that cold today. She hoped she could find a nice tree, that she could carry home to put in her living room. She walked among the trees and spotted the perfect one near the back of the lot. The problem was she wouldn’t be able to carry it home. She could always call Liam but he was probably mad at her. She could always call her dad. Or she could come back tomorrow? She stood there, crossing her arms over her chest trying to figure out what to do.
