A team of middle school interviews traveled from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Newark, Delaware to fight against other high school teams across the country to get the highest recruitment loan from the country, which is worth an undisclosed amount of money. As a result, the Pittsburgh team won the tournament. Unknown to them, his school had to be awarded a special prize, but none of the team had been informed about the type of prize.
The prize included a facsimile of a strange book by William Shakespeare, known as the "First Folio" inside a box that Dr. Titus Tweet – A wealthy book collector who had many brave little books for Mr. Garble – School & # 39; s debt instructor Then Mr. Garble cave to Mike Donavan, the captain of the team, who looked at him while pretending to smile with false triumph. All the other members smiled and faced. Mike took the picture over him while taking pictures of him that held him as if he were the Super Bowl trophy. However, none of the team knew anything about the book that did not include a title in the box. The book was returned to the instructor of the computer who knew the actual title of the book, but decided not to share it with his team.
A few hours later, the team and instructor got into the school bus that took them to their school in Pittsburgh. Mr. Garble placed the box with the book directly on the back of him, in the seat. One of the members of the team approached and asked: "Why did we get a book and not a trophy, not even money?" The instructor replied: "It is a reproduction of an old book, called" First Folio "by William Shakespeare."
The boy did not know what to say; the title did not make any sense for him. So he turned and walked back to where his friends started to drink beer bottles that poured into empty soda bottles to trick the instructor. After thirty minutes they get drunk.
One of the drunken students calmly sank in the corridor, picked up the box while the professor had slept. One of them opened it and took out the book without his instructor knowing it. The book was old, but each member of the team was stiff while driving carelessly.
"A book? A damn book?" one of them said. They looked at each other as they fainted as they passed. "We have received many books in the school." Here … David, keep it. "This woke David. He watched for a few minutes, but thought the book was worthless.
Two hundred and fifty kilometers later, his bus stopped at a dinner for dinner after leaving for a ramp, all the students moved away, leaving David to continue making the pages carefully. But when he got up, all had entered inside.
David took the book with him, threw it to sleep and filed it in an external can. He then went in to ask for food with his friends. While they were talking while looking at the menu, a middle-aged man wearing an old coat slipped into the same dining room. His head was long and wild as he stood out with a mildew cap. He had a gray mustache, which was connected with a long beard.
When the students saw him, they could not let him down and laughter. But the poor man was accustomed to that. His name was Jim. He had given life to everyone, teaching at various schools until he married a seemingly pleasant woman who became a night of a beautiful harlot. They had several children who ended up in prison to get rid of drugs, steal and win people who did not like them. The woman made it out of the house after considering that it was "nobody" that could not continue working for physical illness.
When the students finished the meal, they were about to return to the bus until they reached their school. While walking and taking seats, all had forgotten the book that had passed. A couple of hundreds of miles later, one of the boys remembered it and asked what happened to him. Nobody knew, unless David was given the book.
"Wrap in the dining room. What did you expect you to do with it?" David confessed.
"Why? This belongs to Mr. Garble. We won this book at the conference. What are we going to say to Mr. Garble?"
"We have to return and get it. We will be punished."
"We're too far away. David, can you get the book in the library?"
"We will try. As soon as we get off the bus when we get home, I will go to the school library and I will get a book like the one in the box," David answered anxiously. "Just make sure that Garble thinks we have the book.
Mike said: "If you ask, tell us that we are reading."
Later, Garble slept while the bus approached the school. When he stopped, Garble began to feel ill and when he left the bus he vomited. Some of the boys were left to help him while two of them rush to the library with the empty box to find a copy of the "First Folio" masterpiece. They found a common book full of all the works of Shakespeare, they checked it and they put it in the box. When they returned to Mr. Garble, who was still sick, they took out the box.
Back in the dining room, the poor man had only eaten what he could afford, which was mounted in the middle of a dry burger. He could not afford it, but he apologized to his waitress because he had no money. When he opened the door to exit, he sank into the outer bin and began to prick it. He saw that the book was on top. Curiously, he picked it up and opened it on the first page. It reads Comedies, stories and tragedies by William Shakespeares . In the center there was a large recorded image of William Shakespeare. The background is read London … 1623 .
Jim examined the book, without believing what he was seeing. Shakespeare It could not be he thought. It was certainly old. He looked around and went back to the restaurant. He espied his amiable waiter and asked if he could have a bag without telling him that he wanted to protect the book he had hidden in his coat. Then, he decided to take a short bus ride to the University of Delaware, where he could examine the book more closely.
When he left, he went to the nearest library and was allowed to enter although he did not carry any identification. Everyone in the library watched Jim's attire, but he did not bother him. For the moment, he kept the book hidden, without trusting anyone to see what he had. He reached a desk at the bottom of the library.
After an hour, Jim had examined the book as much as he could. I was not sure but I thought it was a modern facsimile of some kind of famous William Shakespeare book called First Folio. Jim looked up and around him. I intended to use computers, but I did not want to appear so discouraged. What could you do?
His appearance, he decided to ask a librarian. Thus, he looked around and watched a woman of dark and middle-aged hair that was a bookstore. He walked toward her until she put herself a few meters away and asked her: "Forgive me. I have a question about a book I have." The lady looked at him and made a double shot when he saw that it looked crazy, but he smiled as he approached looking at his book. He left the shelf and grabbed the book. "Go with me. Let's go to my office to take a look."
Jim walked behind her while they went to her office on the ground floor. He asked for his name. "I am Don Donna Schmitt, the librarian's head. But, please call" Donna & # 39; " "." I'm glad to know that you are the main librarian. My name is "Jim", by the way. "" It's nice to meet you, Jim, "he replied.
As soon as they entered the Donna office, she cleared up her desk and placed the book in front of her. Jim sat in the left armchair next to her and looked at Donna as she carefully examined the outside of the book. Then she opened the cover and her eyes slowly. After a few more minutes of study, the eyes grow as far as they will go. He turned his head and asked severely: "Where have you gotten that?"
Jim lied and said: "I've been to my family for many years." He lied because he knew he probably did not believe he found him in a trash bin on the other side of the city. "Actually, I …"
He interrupted and his hands began to tremble. "From what I can determine, he owns a genuine and strange book called the First Folio of all Shakespeare's 32 features. Based on the condition and the rarity … his book … I … I believe which is worth more than $ 1 million. "
Jim opened his mouth quickly. "I'm a little hard to hear, but I just said what I thought you said." "Yes. You have an extremely strange book and I'm going to call the House of heritage auctions," he replied. Jim thought a moment and started to smile. He could not believe his luck.
"Do not worry. I used to work there selling extremely rare books." Jim froze in his place, unable to answer. Donna looked at the Heritage website and wrote some information. Jim was numbed; From all these years of life on the streets, his fortune was closer than a meter from Tokyo.
"I can not believe it!" Jim replied.
"It seems that I could use a place to stay. It's a little late." Sensing Jim could not afford a place to stay, called a road inn and asked for a night reservation for Jim. Jim felt it seriously as he explained how much he could make a million dollars for him.
She did it to Calhoun Inn. She left her there, paid a room with the understanding that she would pick her up in the morning. Donna let her keep the book. When he left Jim on the Inn, he entered the room and took a long shower needed. Then he fell asleep dreaming happily all night long.
In the mansion of Titus Tweet, the rich book pattern looked at his desk and saw the original Shakespeare "First Folio". He looked and looked for a few seconds. Then he looked at him anxiously and picked it up. "Oh no!" Tweet opened the cover. The facsimile Horrified, realized what he had done – accidentally handed out his original copy to the discussion team.
Title called the institute and asked to speak with Mr. Garble. The operator transferred it to his office but only received his voice message. After the sound, Tweets told Garble that accidentally made him an original copy that was worth millions, not the facsimile. He wanted to come back immediately.
The next morning, Garble went to his office with the box with the book of the library and opened the door. He still felt nausea, but better. She checked the phone's messages and noticed that someone had called. He took a quick look at the button and heard the message from Dr. Tweet. When the message ended, Garble opened the box and found the copy. Confused, he immediately called all the members of his discussion club through the school intercommunication.
They knew they were dead when they heard their voice, but little by little he went to his office. "Did you know that it was given an original book from the time of Shakespeare?
All the members of the team felt stunned and guilty. Dave said bravely: "I do it in the trash when we ate at this restaurant."
"What? This book is worth millions of dollars? I do not think this? What is the number of this restaurant? It does not matter, I'm looking for it!" As he did, each member of the team said that the book was still there. However, after Garble would take over from the manager and asked him to look at the trash to see if there was a book, the manager told him that the bin was removed that morning.
"We are screwed." Garble said irritant. In fact, they were all screwed up. The high school would be in the hook of an authentic "First Folio", which could be bankrupt in the school.
In a week, Donna helped Jim get the iconic book at the Heritage auction. Meanwhile, he gave him money to get a very necessary haircut, and clothes for what he used. Donna considered Jim to be a handsome man. The feelings about him began to revolt in the heart. She was divorced for a decade and had a child. Jim thought Donna was his guardian angel because he had been so kind to him.
When the auction began to bite your fingers, Jim and Donna tracked this live on the Heritage website. Donna assured him that the price was more than $ 1 million, but both wanted it to be as high as possible. He held his hand and held it as they watched the amount rise. During the last thirty minutes, they could not help chewing their nails. At the end of the auction, the book was sold for $ 4.75 million.
They cheered and embraced. Then they looked at each other without saying a word. Maybe there was no need for words. It was not long before they became a couple and they started dating. At the end of a year, Jim raised the question to Donna, who fought when she kneaded and took out a beautiful gold ring. She told him with a pity "yes."
The foolishness of the rich made the poor rich, but a "rich is nothing more than a poor man with money." (WC Fields).
