It was a friday afternoon, a few weeks before the christmas holiday and Holly Wildwood was at school, it was the last lesson of the day. ''Class'', said English teacher Mrs Slydale, '' this years end of term project, is to write a letter to your best friend about your plans this Christmas'' 'Who are your best friends?, hands up please!'' Buster Slydale eagerly raised his hand, ''Lester Thistlethorn he loves to shout boo at people just like me, shame he ends up scaring himself too though!'' A few other children raised there hands and named fellow clasmmates. '' All of your friends live in this town then??''Mrs Slydale questioned
Holly raised her hand and said ''Not mine miss, her name is Misty Waters, she doesn't live in this town but in a town very far for here.
Holly and Misty had met after Rose Timbertop introduced them at one of the Wildwood family parties as she was new to town! They both loved music and the colour red so they instantly became good friends!
Misty even joined the band until her family moved away.
As they live apart they call each other weekly to catch up on everything that has been happening
as well as phoning,they send the occasional card once in a while, for example for birthdays and christmas
When Holly came home she found her mother Ginger, in the kitchen busy baking
Who are you making those for? Asked Holly "Misty and Nancy''she replied, ''We will be visiting them over Christmas remember?
that was right, Sometimes Holly went to Misty's town to visit so the very next day she went to the Babblebrook shop to buy her a present
After Holly had browsed the shop and found the perfect gift, she returned to the till only to find Rocky had gone for his lunch break in the Harvester next door leaving his parents, Cliff and Pearl to run the shop while he was gone. Just like the old days.
In the olden days, when Pearl and Cliff ran the store. Pearl used to make the donuts and they were a surprisingly big seller. The children didnt want to hurt poor Pearl's feelings so they bought the donuts just so they could hear Cliff's stories and get a lemon drop aswell . Because let's just say Pearl donuts would have sunk in the lake....
After hearing all about how the shop used to be Holly came home very tired but very excited to see Misty at christmas time, as she was just about to get into bed she told Rusty all about it and about the village store in the olden days and that night they dreamt about Pearl, Misty and christmas.....
