Della and Jim lived in a very old apartment. They were broke. and It was Christmas Eve. The only money Della had to buy Jim a present was 1.85$ .
Then, she had an idea...
I know a way to earn some money!
Jim is worth the risk.
she would cut of her most prized treasure, her hair, To come up with the money. after all she loved Jim and nothing could stop her from buying him a gift. Not even her hair.
I have to find Jim the perfect gift. Or I will have cut and sold my hair for nothing.
After leaving the salon she had earned 20.00$ in cash for cutting and selling her hair. upon leaving she walked to to clothing store across the street.
There was no luck at any of the stores she had gone to, to purchase the perfect gift for Jim. She would stop at nothing to give the best Christmas he has had in a long time.
she walked into the last open mens boutique of the night...
Della thought that there must have been some kind of miracle. The last store of the night was the one. She found Jim a simple platinum fob chain to go on his watch that his father had given him. it was his most prized possession.
When Della returned home she took a deep breath and looked in the mirror. hoping Jim would ignore the fact she looked like an adolescent boy and focused on the fact that she was still he with or without her long, beautiful hair. And plus she had spent the last of her 20.00 she got from the Solon for her hair on his gift. Hopefully he got her something of equal importance. Merry Christmas!
