In the Shadow of the Bat
Note: By football, I mean American football since this is in the US
The Nygma farm wasn't high income. Richard Nygma only had enough money to be able to provide for his family of eight; he, his wife, his sons Robert, James, and Ewan, his daughter Emily, and young Edward. In todays terms, Edward would be considered a geek. A very intelligent boy, but not the toughest or most popular kid around. He was constantly bullied by his brothers James and Ewan.

"Hey Ed! Want to hear a riddle? What is brown and old and has widows all over? Black widows to be precise!"
"No, the shed? Please don't put me in the shed! Fine, I'll play football with you!"
"No, we are beyond that now. Ewan, get the door open!" After following his brother's orders, they both tossed Edward in.
"Someday," Edward thought, "I won't have to put up with this anymore." Edward found that he would have to pass the time until he gets out of the shed. He had a backpack full of puzzles and and word games he could play to pass the time. He picked one out, and started playing......
