As you walk down the gravelled street, you nearly trip on a patch of ice. You slip around for a while but then regain your balance. Its really cold, and the old houses around you are sparkling with the thick layer of snow on the tapered roofs. It’s like a winter wonderland. You turn a corner to make your way to the local store when something catches your eye. You have been here a million times before, but something is different. An old grey familiar house has some colour. You walk closer and look into an old window. The white paint on the wooden frame is chipped, and there are big icicles hanging from the top with the sunlight shining through them, making them sparkle. There are hundreds of lollies hanging from the ceiling, laying in bowls and sprinkled everywhere. Its the most colourful and welcoming thing you’ve ever seen. You walk another few steps to see the old blue door have an OPEN sign. As you enter through the door, the bell rings. There is an amazing smell of hot sugar and the entire shop is filled with all these hard candies. There are bright fairy lights draped around the store, and there are people, with aprons, stretching sugar behind a half wall. The old lady at the counter greets you with a “hi” then continues talking to another customer. You walk around the store, and there are endless flavours and sizes. As it is Christmas time, there are jars with a mixture of peppermint, gingerbread and saffron hard candies, and it is the saffron that you want. You can’t buy them individually, so even though you don’t like gingerbread you buy the whole jar as well as some watermelon and caramel flavoured ones. The lady placed them in a brown paper bag and you paid with some coins. As you open the door to leave, the little bell rings again. The icy breeze brushed on your cheeks as walked outside. You cant wait to go tell your mum about your new discovery! But now you remember. The money that you used to pay for the lollies was supposed to be for milk and flour! Oops. Next time.
