Auction Mishap


My sister, Ruby, and I decided to leave home and get a place of our own. We went to a crowded auction where we spotted a bed that would be perfect.

Ruby opened the bidding, and every time the price was raised, she nodded her head. But soon the cost was too high. We dejectedly drove home.

That evening Dad proudly told us: “I bought you girls a bed. But it wasn’t cheap. Some determined lady at the auction kept bidding the price up!”
