Little Sandra squeaked with delight when she saw the vendor with balloons filled with twinkling lights. Mary approached the old man and bought one sparkly balloon for her daughter amid his heartfelt gratitude.

Mary pressed a few dollars in his hands so that at least for one night he won’t have to worry.
