1. Introduction to the main characters of the story
Catherine was the only daughter of a millionaire Mr. Rushell. Her parents Mrs and Mr. Rushell were both business persons. Because of some reasons Catherine's parents had to shift back to India who were previously living in Switzerland. After joining a college in India she met Tisha, Marsella and Tina. They became quite good friends. Catherine started to live in an apartment just near the hostel of her other three friends. She was quite intelligent, adventurous and sincere girl. Every weekend she planned a trip with her three friends. But something strange happened to her this weekend.
Catherine! Save yourself. Tisha shouted as she bounced a ball towards Catherine. " Grow up sweetheart. Not a kid anymore. " Catherine laughed and catched the ball. Catherine, a twenty years old girl was a very active and smart girl. She was fairy brown with black eyes and rosy lips. Her hairs were extreme black and shiny and were slightly down from her shoulders.
"Oh, Catherine I love being a child. By the way, are you going somewhere this weekend? " asked Tisha sitting besides Catherine's lovely red car on a bench outside Catherine's house. "No baby. I 'm all yours. You can take me along with you. By the way what have you planned? " asked Catherine. " What about a trip to my town?" Replied Tisha. "Absolutely fine idea gals" shouted Marsella and Tina who joined them just then. They both lived in a hostel along with Tisha just near the house of Catherine. "Fine then, meet you Friday evening, Catherine". Said Tisha and the three went back to their hostel bidding a goodbye to Catherine.
2. Tisha's confession about the blocked website
The next morning all four went out for morning walk. Tisha looked quite upset. "Hey Tisha! Are you alright? " asked Catherine. "Something strange happened to me last night." Tisha started sharing the reason." I ordered a set of headphones from a website. I used my netbanking for that and the amount was also deducted from my account."
"So what's the big deal? I also purchase most of my items online and the procedure is same as you told just now." Marsella interrupted in between. "Oh come'n Marsella! Let her speak first. Say Tisha what's the problem? Any financial crises?" asked Catherine. Tisha almost burst into tears. "From then only the site is seen blocked. What should I do now? I wasted Rs. 1000 on it." Tisha started crying more loudly. They all consoled her. "Did you check your account status thereafter. Maybe your money have been returned to you after this."said Catherine. Tisha opened her eyes wide and giving a sweet smile she answered, " I never thought so. I was in such a shock that I didn't check my account." Let's go to the hostel and check it out gals" said Tina eating a banana quite hastily. She was fond of eating and so she carried with her something to eat everytime; even during a walk.
3. Headphones are delivered!
All the four reached Tisha's room in the hostel. "Cross your fingers gals" shouted Marsella who was quite superstitious " let's hope for the best." All four did the same as the keys were in Marsella's hands. She opened the door. Quickly Tisha typed the password for her laptop, opened her bank's site and checked her account status. "No gals, it has not been returned " said Tisha shallowing her eyes with tears. Just then someone knocked the door. Tina opened. Shweta, a girl living at first gate of the hostel was there. She handed over a parcel to Tina and went back.
"What's it Tina?" asked Catherine. "A parcel addressing Tisha." She replied. Tisha took the parcel and opened it. "My headphones gals" she jumped and shouted. "I was not cheated. I got them." A spirit of happiness flowed through the girls. "I think we should start planning for the trip to Tisha's" said Catherine and they all joined hands. Catherine came back to her house and others returned to their rooms in the hostel.
