After a four-hour ride, the foursome and the Beatles finally arrived in Manchester. While walking, they could observe that the place was not as alive because of the water disruption. Even the giant fontein in the city square was all dried up. As the group stopped to plan out what they should do next, Nicholas saw a familiar figure approaching their vicinity. The figure herself stopped and thought, "Nicholas, is that you?" At just the right time, he exclaimed, "Bridget!" The two then ran towards each other and gave a big hug. Bridget said, "Oh, Nicholas, I missed u so much! Did u come here to check on me?" Nicholas replied, "I missed you, too, love! And yes, I did." Bridget remarked, "That is so sweet of you." This made Nicholas smile, and he then introduced her to Rosie, the Geordie twins, and the Beatles. They were very happy to meet her as well. Bridget said, "I'm glad u made lots of new vrienden when u left for college, Nicholas." Nicholas replied, "I'm glad for that, too, Bridget." Rosie said, "And I've decided for us to come here so we could find what caused the city's water supply to get cut off and to restore it." Bridget replied, "That's great! I would like to help u all with your mission, too. Let's go to my house so we could discuss and plan on how to work this out." Rosie remarked, "Wonderful! Let's go!" So, with Bridget leading them, everyone started their walk to her house.
