Project 6060 – Lesson 34
We Were Entering the House
Yesterday I went to the basement of the house to pick up my bicycle. I turned on the light and went down the stairs. I was picking up my bicycle when I saw an old black box on the ground. The door of the box was locked. However much I searched, I couldn’t find the key. I was breaking the door of the box with a wrench, when my sister entered the basement.
She was really surprised. I told her to be quiet. I opened the box and in it were some old photographs, a letter and a map. I took a good look at the map. It was a map of our house but, like a treasure map, there was a marker on it.
We picked up a shovel and pick and went up the stairs with the map. We entered the garden. We were digging up the garden when my mother came. We showed her the map. She told us that this was a very old map and it belonged to my grandfather.
After half an hour, we arrived at something under the soil. It was a box. We pulled it out. It was just like the box inside the basement. We opened the box. Inside the box was an amount of old money and gold.
We took some of the coins and gold to an antique dealer. First, the antique dealer asked our address and details and then said that they were very valuable but that he wasn’t going to buy them. We went home quickly. We were entering the house when one policeman and one person from the national museum came. They said that we had to give all the monies and gold to the museum.
