d an old one before,but it had broken down several times during the spring.“What you want is a second-hand car,”I suggested.
“If you give me the money,”he said.“I’ll get one tomorrow.”
“I can’t give you the money,”I replied,“but what about Aunt Myra. She must have enough. We haven’t seen her since Christmas but she always says that we should go and see her more often.”
We told our parents where we were going. They weren’t very happy about it and asked us not to go. So we didn’t. But later that same day something strange happened. A doctor rang to tell us that Aunt Myra had gone into hospital for an operation.“We can’t all go and see her at the same time,”said my mother.“You two go today,but mustn’t mention the money.”
When we got there,Aunt Myra seemed quite happy.“I’m not seriously ill,”she said,“but the doctor insists that I’m getting too old to drive my car. You can have it if you promise to take me to the seaside now and again.”We agreed,and now we quite enjoy our monthly trips to the coast with Aunt Myra.
