” And only 5 minutes left to place your bet,” the loudspeaker said.
I came to the desk to place my bet but which one would I choose? Maybe Runner, no, Slow Coach, in my dreams. But as I saw Lightning I knew he was mine.
The man asked, ” Now which one?”
“Lightning ” I repeated.
“And how much? ” he asked again.
“Just to try my luck, 1 million “I replied handing in the money.
” Ok here is the ticket, “he said.
I took the ticket and went in. The race started and I thought well what a start. I could see Lightning in the lead. With only one turn left he crossed the finish line first.
” Yesss, Three Million here I come!”
