Counting the small amount of money she has, she realizes she don't have enough to buy a good Christmas.
Suddenly she whirled around from the window and stood in front of the glass. Her eyes shining brightly, but her face had lost its color within twenty seconds. Rapidly she pulled down her hair and let it fall to its full length.
She doesn't know what her husband will think but she loves him so much she cuts her hair and sells it for money to buy a present. He doesn't want to but he loves her so much he puts his watch up for sale to get money to buy a present for her.
