Kathy looked at her new room’s white walls.
“They’re so plain.”
“Don’t worry,” Dad said, “If you don’t like them, we ___WILL_MAKE___ the walls any colour you like.”
“Do you want pink?” Mum suggested. Kathy ___SHOOK___ her head.
“No, pink is either for ___BABIES___ or for silly girls who like Barbie dolls. I’m neither of those.”
Her parents smiled but ___DID_NOT_SAY___ anything.
“But what colour to choose? I wish we ___COULD___ ask a designer for professional advice,” said Kathy.
“Oh, no! It’s out of the question!” said Kathy’s mother, firmly. A designer’s advice is much ___MORE_EXPENSIVE___ than we can afford.”
“Ok. It was just an idea.”
“Getting back to the wall colour, why not make your room yellow or orange?” Dad suggested. “When the walls ___ARE_PAINTED___ in those colours, the room will look cheerful.”
“Yes!” Kathy definitely liked the idea. “We’ll make three walls yellow, but the ___FOURTH___ one will be orange.”
The next day, when Kathy came back from school, her Dad said: “Look what I ___HAVE_BOUGHT___.” There were paints and brushes on the floor.
“Everything’s ready for us to start.” He smiled and handed Kathy the brush.
