Abigail and the Magical Gift chapter 1 part 2
Abigail’s eyes always twinkled when she teased. “You’ll be sitting all alone in the cafeteria wishing you had your dear friend Abigail by your side; but no, it’ll just be you and your shabby jeans... I’m head cheerleader this year, you know, and that means I can only be seen with…” Abigail burst out laughing, unable to finish her own sentence.
They both knew that Abigail’s threat was meaningless. She and Carlos had been best friends since the first day of kindergarten and there was no way she could spend even one day not speaking to him. Especially over something as silly as the
clothes he wore. Abigail may have liked nice things, but she knew the difference between what was really important and what wasn’t. Her friendship with Carlos was one of the most important things in her life, even if he was as scruffy as an old hound.
Carlos laughed and said, “Okay, fine. If it’ll make you happy, you can be my stylist.” At the mall, Carlos was a good sport as Abigail dragged him from store to store. They laughed until they cried at all the ridiculous outfits he tried on. He put on a deerstalker hat, a yellow silk shirt, a pink feather boa and, last of all, a spotty onesie that made him look like a Dalmation dog. Of course, the result was inevitable; he bought two pairs of jeans and a new T-shirt that looked exactly the same as his old jeans and T-shirts!
Even though the shopping trip wasn’t a success in changing the way Carlos dressed, they’d still had a great time. That’s what Abigail loved most about Carlos; he could always make her laugh and persuade her not to take herself too seriously. To be continued next week... #bookoftheweek
