The necklace

When I got married, I couldn’t buy myself anything that cost very much. One Friday I went to the mall to eat and go shopping, and I saw this leopard necklace in the jewelry store. It cost too much for me to spend on myself. The next week I checked to see if they had reduced it. They hadn’t. So I kept on checking for a long time. It finally was reduced, but when I went to buy it, it was gone. I was mad because I really wanted it. Three or four months went by and I had forgotten about the necklace. When I was opening my presents that Christmas, there was the necklace! It was the best surprise I think I have ever had. My mother went and bought it for me.
