The next day Ellie, arose from her slumber feeling less anxious. Positive thoughts.
Elspeth arrived in time for their shopping trip.
“Shopping, then lunch at Rosie’s place?”
“Of course my dear Elspeth.”
There they often met June and Cynthia.
In the perfume department if ‘Boots’ Ellie was testing the new arrivals, a figure at the store window caused, Ellie to freeze, the colour draned from her face.
It was Albert her ex-husband.
Elspeth was over by the make-up counter.
Ellie thought she was going to faint.
With concern the assistant at the counter got Ellie a chair.
When Ellie looked, again he was gone, Ellie dare not say did you see him incase the lady didn’t, maybe he was not there and it was in her head.
A head that now seemed to be spinning, a tight feeling in her chest.
Elspeth came over.
“Ellie, what on earth has happened?”
The counter assistant said,
“She saw a man at the window then went pale and near collapsed.”
“Did you see him?”
“Yes, he looked, sad.”
“Don’t, be fooled, he is my ex-husband for a reason.”
Elspeth, took Ellie to Rosie’s she needed something for the shock!!
