"What's the matter" a girl asked a ragged boy. "Nothing" the brown red-eyed
boy answered. "Where's your good behaviour? it's not very polite to lie, I'm
sure Santa heard that. Now do you want my help, or not?" the girl tryed again. "
I do" the boy said. "My name is Lucinda Wellington Jones, what's yours? "she
asked. "Jason Lee Coast" he said, and looked up. She was smiling and she had a
tiny pixy on her shirt. The train stopped and a ticket collector came in. Jason
whispered to Lucinda that he had got to get out off the train, because the man
who came in could be very cruel. "Who told you that?" Lucinda asked. "Mum" Jason
said. "Well it's okay as long as you're with me" she assured. The ticket
collector came towards them and Jason closed his eyes, waiting for something bad
to happen. Jason heard the cruel man ask Lucinda to see her ticket and then
Lucinda said "my stepbrother is under six years old". The train stopped again
and almost every body hurried out. "Why are you in the train and where's your m
other?" Lucinda asked. "My mother said that I was old enough to take care of my
self. So my mother sat me on the train and said that if there came any of the
cruel men I should hurry out, and I don't believe in Santa. But if you do he
properly heard you lien, I'm 7" Jason said "Would you like to buy some
christmaspresents with me?" Lucinda asked. "I don't know -maybe some of the
shopasistents will recognise me, and I'm really not supposed to go with
strangers" Jason said. "Well, only you can decide if I'm a stranger" Lucinda
said very tempting.
"My feets hurt" Jason complained. "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have dragged you
with. It wasn't supposed to take so long -I swear" Lucinda excused. "Well I
should have got enough presents now, I have almost spent all my pocketmoney in
just one day! I better go home now." "Can I come?" Jason asked. Lucinda said
that he could, but only for a peace of bread.
