I entered the clubroom after-school the next day. Sheryl and Samantha were both already there.
"Hey James, listen to this!" Sheryl pulled out her recorder.
"Uh, okay." I reluctantly closed the door and sat down.
To my surprise, Sheryl managed to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Smiling, she said, "So, what do you guys think?"
"It was great!" Samantha said, excitedly.
"Yeah," I echoed.
"Thanks!" Sheryl smiled, proud of herself.
I looked over to the shelf and saw two folders there that weren't there the day before.
Curious, I picked one of them up and opened it. In it was a case file on the case that we just resolved. I picked up the other folder and opened it to find another case file, this time on the one where we found Samantha's cat.
"I see that you've found our case files," Sheryl peeked over my shoulders, "Samantha wrote them up. She's going to be logging our cases!"
"Oh, these are pretty good," I said. "Did you know that we had two more cases before yours?"
Samantha smiled and took a laptop out of her bag. "Tell me about them!"
I smiled. Well, I guess now we have something to fill up that shelf with.
I began telling Samantha about our cases, as Sheryl proudly played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star again.
