A Glint Of Gold

Johal’s heart sank as he looked at the statement on the bank’s ATM screen.

His holiday to Goa had taken more out of both him and his savings than he’d expected.

His next stop was to have been Tesco for a bag of ice but now he decided to go to the pound shop and buy some plastic trays instead.

As he walked home he passed the antique shop and stared at the window.

Few items were priced and he could see why. A glint of gold caught his eye and he grinned as he spotted a familiar item; a small Indian elephant lead by a man in national costume.

As Johal took a mouthful of water, the elephant’s price tag made him cough… if this baby was worth £1,000 what was his adult version at home worth?
