Fred flipped through the channels on the television. His friends weren't around to see this latest advertisement. He thought it was really interesting. It wasn't around very long to get enough attention. Here's what the ad said on the screen:

"This is a contest. If anyone of you are interested, you could be a winner to spend a week with Perry Mason. You may never know if you'll win to have this fun week. You could also be the winner and maybe involved in a murder to solve. If you're watching this ad right now, dial the number at the bottom on the screen and have this opportunity to meet the famous lawyer and secretary. Good luck. On how you will know if you're the winner of this contest, you will receive the information through the mail."

Fred laughed a little bit as he dialed the number that was on the screen. Since he and his friends are well – known for solving mysteries, they could stand a chance to win this contest. After putting the telephone back, Fred turned off the television to do something else. Not sure where his friends are, he called for them instead of searching the house.

"Gang!" Fred yelled as loud as he could so Daphne, Shaggy, and Velma would join him to hear about this latest advertisement. His friends joined him as fast as they could.

"You called, Freddy?"

"Yes, Daphne. Guess what was on television? It was a TV ad. Too bad you weren't here to see it."

"Just tell us, Fred," Shaggy told him.

"That's what I'm doing, Shaggy. Have any of you guys seen that advertisement about winning a contest?"

"What kind of contest is this, Fred? Maybe you can give us the details and we'll answer your question," Velma told him.

"Well, the contest is about spending an entire week and maybe have the chance to work on a murder mystery."

Now Velma was seeing where Fred is coming on about this contest.

"What is the mystery about, Freddy?" Daphne asked.

Fred shook his head and said, "I have no clue. The winner of this contest is to spend a whole week with that famous lawyer, Perry Mason."

Now the three of his friends were showing more interest since Fred said the magic word, which was "mystery."

"What did you do then?" Shaggy asked their friend.

"I wrote the number from the screen and called in. Even if we don't win, we gave it a shot."

"This sounds very exciting, Fred! I've been watching those reruns on TV myself, so now I see where you're coming with this," said Velma.

"That's what I thought."

"How do we know if we're the lucky winners?" asked Shaggy.

"Through the mail."


"I wonder what kind of mystery it's going to be," said Velma.

"Aged," he said.

Now all they had to do was wait for the mail to arrive about this contest, whenever that will be.
