One story’s main characters, based on true story:
Sharie- Girl, Dee, Cheung Ho Ka (sorry, but do you notice the one character difference of Maggie and my Chinese name? Haha..sorry)
Viki- Girl A, Dude, Luong Ka Yun
Poly- Girl C, Deed (although she doesn’t like it)
Dina- Girl B, Dud
Jordan- Girl D, Dead
Note to the four other girls: I was rather reluctant on adding a certain “person” on one of the cases, but since she’s “our” story, I put aside the differences and put her in the story. I hope you don’t mind me putting you on the story, and if I offend you in any way, I’m sorry. The main plot is included as you will know, but I add things to spice it up. Hope you guys enjoy, and it’s in memory of our friendship.

Credit goes to the author, George Selden of “The Cricket in Times Square”. Surely, you have a slight idea of what the first case is going to be about. I am replacing the usual characters with the characters of the above.
Introducing the first case (summary of the story, in my own words and revised):
Shawn sat on the newsstand, his hands shaped like a fist against his chin. His bored mind led his elbow to create a dent on the newspaper. He looked outside, the subway of New York at its cold times. It was completely empty, with no sound except the little taps when the scraps people littered, picked up and down on the ground from the wind. The rush hour wouldn’t be here until a while, and Shawn was left with nothing to do.
Meanwhile, a mouse and a cat were in the drainpipe, filled with the same emotions. Both of them walked deep in the drainpipe, with turns and twists, finally lying down on the huge space for both of them. Suddenly, in the silence, they heard a little chirp mixed in. Usually, it would not be very surprising, since crickets would try to get in somewhere warmer. But this time, the three mammals swore they heard a melody they have never heard of. The soft music drained into their minds, quickly erasing the bored-ness of their emotions.
Shawn walked over to see what was the cause of the melodic chirps once he awakened from his trance. He stepped out the newsstand temporarily to explore, his ears opened for any noises. He would move every time there was a single movement. Suddenly, a loud chirp was heard, and Shawn abruptly turned the other direction. He walked over. Nearby, he saw a pile of dirt with coupons from newspapers at the corner. Shawn stood there to closely observe it. The wind blew softly, wavering the pile of dirt a fourth of a centimeter. He saw something black that moved, but it wasn’t the way that the wind blew it.
Finally, he walked over to the pile and lifted some of the trash up. He saw a small cricket, with its wings moving, this time allowing a small chirp to release. Shawn carefully bent down and picked the fragile insect up. With the creature on his fingers, he walked back in the newsstand and sat on the small stool. He looked around, and caught a glimpse of an empty matchbox in the trashcan, on top of the trash. He picked it up, pulled a piece of Kleenex to stick in the matchbox. He put the small creature inside, and closed it halfway. He smiled at his discovery and tried to find the cricket something to eat. He found a piece of chocolate he had left for a dessert for lunch. He broke apiece off the chocolate and sent one in the matchbox. The cricket chirped in gratitude, this time louder than before.
The two creatures inside the drainpipe could hear the chirp, and walked back to the edge of the pipe. Once they were there, they saw Shawn caressing an insect, as he slowly put it down. The mouse and the cat nodded at each other, both deciding something together.
