They looked at each other, a little disagreeably, across the breakfast table. Mrs Foster thought that Emma was being unhelpful; Emma thought that her mother should have some interesting alternative already worked out. "In that case," said Mrs Forster, "you can come down into the town with me. And then we could go for a walk along of the shopping centre." The Centre. You can walk through it, but I walked along there hundreds of times before. Emma thought. Mrs Foster added without enthusiasm, "You could buy an ice-cream or something your like at the end of it."

So she couldn't wait till she got out of the centre and away from this weird atmosphere. But she had to stay and go around shopping with her Mum just to keep her happy. The escalator stopped.
