Although she wouldn’t be leaving until a few days later. Mrs Mills took them on outings and bought them some lovely dresses to wear April was so happy as the time spent with Cynthia and Mrs Mills reminded her of her caring family life she had with her mother… They played well together, and April was taught many things such as piano. Cynthia played the piano and April picked it up quite quickly as she loved music and singing. After a week, it was time to go back home. April felt sad to go back as she had such a lovely time. Mrs Mills took her home, and Betty opened the door and said falsely, “Thank you, very kind of you, how pretty she looks, come inside now April go to your room”, Betty collected the dresses from April’s room and put them away.
