It was the old lady's birthday.

She got up early to be ready for the post. 

 Today she was sure there would be something. Myra wouldn't forget her mother's birthday, even if she seldom wrote at other times. Of course Myra was busy. Her husband had been made Mayor, and Myra herself had got a medal for her work for the aged.

   The old lady was eighty today. She had put on her best dress. Perhaps--perhaps Myra might come. After all, eighty was a special birthday……

 

  

  Even if Myra did not come, she would send a present. The old lady was sure of that. Two ____ of colour brightened her cheeks. She was excited--like a child. She would enjoy her day.

    Yesterday Mrs. Morrison had given the flat an extra clean, and today she had brought a card and a bunch of

marigolds when she came to do the breakfast. Mrs. Grant downstairs had made a cake, and in the afternoon she was going down there to tea. The little boy, Johnnie, had been up with a packet of mints, and said he wouldn't go out to

play until the post had come.

    "I guess you'll get lots and lots of presents," he said, "I did last were when I was six."

What would she like? A pair of slippers perhaps or a new cardigan. A cardigan would be lovely. Blue's such a pretty colour. Jim had always liked her ____ blue. Or a table lamp. Or a book, a travel book, with pictures, or a little clock, with clear black numbers. So many lovely things.

She stood by the window, watching. The postman turned round the corner on his bicycle. Her heart ____ fast.

Johnniethe boy lives downstairs had seen him too and ran to the gate.

    Then clatter, clatter up the stairs. Johnnie knocked at her door.

    "Granny, granny," he shouted, "I've got your post."

    He gave her four envelopes. Three were ____ cards from old friends. The fourth was sealed, in Myra's writing.

The old lady felt a pang of disappointment.

    "No parcel, Johnnie?"

    "No, granny."

    Maybe the parcel was too large to come by letter post. That was it. It would come later by parcel post. She must

be patient.

    Almost ____ she tore the envelope open. Folded in the card was a piece of paper. Written on the card was a

message under the printed Happy Birthday -- Buy yourself something nice with the cheque, Myra and Harold.

The cheque fluttered to the floor like a bird with a broken wing. Slowly the old lady stooped to pick it up. Her

present, her lovely present. With trembling fingers she ____ it into little bits.
