A new boutique opened in Calico Village.
Bell Hopscotch Rabbit looked into the window and gasped at the sight.
“It’s so beautiful!” she said excitedly.
Cecilia Persian Cat, the owner of the Boutique, greeted each customer as they walked in. The shop was filled with beautiful dresses and sparkling jewelry. Bell had never seen so many gorgeous clothes and accessories before!
Just then, Bell saw a beautiful pink earring in the window.
“Wow”, she thought.
“That earring is so pretty!”
She wanted to buy it but felt too shy to walk into such a fancy boutique on her own. Throughout the week, Bell kept going back to the Boutique to look at the earring from the window. One day, Cecilia opened the door and said to Bell
“Would you like to come inside the shop, sweetheart?&rdquo
Bell anxiously walked into the Boutique.
“You like this earring, don’t you?&rdquo
said Cecilia, taking the earring out of the glass case. Just then, Bell noticed a beautiful necklace in the case too.
“Wow!&rdquo she thought.
“That would look perfect on my Mom!&rdquo
Bell decided to buy her mother the necklace as a present.
The next Sunday, Bell gave her mother the lovely necklace. Her mother was so happy – and she had a surprise for Bell too!
“I bought you something yesterday”, she said.
“I think it will look great on you.”
She gave Bell the present. It was the pink earring from the Boutique! Bell was ecstatic.
“I wanted this for so long!” she said.
Bell told her mother about her trip to the Boutique.
“I was nervous to go inside the shop at first, but it was so wonderful!”
Bell's mother smiled.
“Come to think of it, it’s the Hazelnut Chipmunk family’s party soon, isn’t it? Let’s go to the Boutique again and buy dresses to match the earring.”
Bell and her mother put on their jewelry and drove to the boutique in their convertible.
“Hello again!” said Cecilia, smiling.
She picked out a few lovely dresses for Bell and her mother to try on.
“Wow!” said Bell as she gazed at her reflection in the mirror.
“It’s more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed!”
“These would look nice with your dresses, don’t you think?”
suggested Cecilia, as she brought out two purses in different colors.
Bell and her mother put the purses over their shoulders. Bell’s purse matched her dress perfectly.
“I look like a princess!”
said Bell delightedly, twirling around.
And so Cecilia made the Calico women and girls’ dreams come true with her wonderful boutique.
