6. Short-lived Victory

When I had gotten to the bottom of the stairs, I had almost run into the door not realizing that I had come down so fast. I quietly opened the door and ran out, not caring if anyone saw me. I ran the whole way and I was exhausted. I could barely breathe, but I still ran into the house and immediately went on my computer, not even getting something to drink. I typed in the riddle and a name, Edwin van der Sar, came up and I clicked on it. He was the goalie on Manchester United, a football (soccer) team. It all made sense. There were 11 players and 90 minutes in the game. EVDS was the goalie and he saved the ball.

The only thing that didn’t make sense was the two letters at the bottom of the note, G and A. I looked that up as well, but the only thing I had gotten was random results. I pushed it to the back of my mind hoping to find that out later. Right now though, I needed to find a way to get to Manchester. I went to the first person that popped into my head, John Hold.

I walked across the street and knocked on his door. There was no response. Just as I was about to leave, John pulled into the driveway. “What brings you here?” he said from his old fashioned and rusty car. He didn’t even get out of the car before I blurted out what I wanted to say. “So will you take me to Manchester?” I asked, giving him my best puppy dog face. “Yeah sure, but let’s get moving.” He insisted. I was surprised he was so on board with this without even hearing my reasons. I climbed into his car and we headed out. The car ride took about an hour. I just slept through the car ride because if I didn’t I would have gone crazy with all my excitement and eagerness. Mr. John woke me up 5 minutes before we were going to be in the city.

When we got to the stadium, he parked the car. I almost ran to the gate where the trash can was because that was where people would dispose of this letter or trash. Mr. John stayed in the car while I got the note. I grabbed the note and jogged happily back.
