A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK IS ALL YOU NEED
Cri-Kee Xun is twenty-four years old. She is currently enrolled at Walt University as a senior. Before coming to Los Angeles, you could typically find Cri-Kee in her home town of Chinatown, Manhattan. She’s occasionally stopped on the streets for looking just like Brenda Song’s doppelganger but she insists she resembles Cricket.

When a family has nothing to their name but a little luck and a small convenience store, the members improvise to get more than what they have. Cri-Kee’s family struggled to make a living for four members, but they learned how to bend their situation into something worth living. They taught each other to make the best out of what they had and how to push their luck just far enough to win something. They lived the facade of a noble life in their world of hunger, struggles, and patriarchy. Being the second child, the daughter particularly, Cri-Kee’s needs and happiness were constantly second to her older brother’s. With so little already, there wasn’t much for Cri-Kee once her older brother got his hands on it. He got the new clothing, the new shoes, the new computer, while Cri-Kee played with rag dolls that she made herself. But young Cri-Kee was alright with it, she was content with what she had.
It wasn’t until she grew older and was exposed to the finer things that she started to want more. It wasn’t fair, how come those kids had so much more than she did? How come everything they owned was shiny and new? But Cri-Kee snapped back to her senses, remembering her place. She continued to live the life that she was born into, and she was fine. But she constantly pushed her luck, only to retreat back when things started to go wrong. She did whatever she could for her friends, acting as their protector, but when they faced real trouble, Cri-Kee would always sink back behind one of them because she knew she couldn’t handle it. She grew braver over time with the right people beside her, but when they both left her alone, she reverted back to her old ways. She wished she could be as brave as she let on, but the girl who grew up with nothing was terrified of the sacrifices and the consequences that come with bravery. She wanted to be truly selfless.
But eventually, the selfishness that was born earlier managed to take over Cri-Kee. Living in her brothers’s shadow and surrounded by things that didn’t belong to her, something snapped inside her. Cri-Kee wanted more. She was just too scared to do things herself. Nobody was around to hold her back, to drag her head from the clouds. Cri-Kee began shirking her responsibilities to play with the rich kids, the kids who had cool devices and large houses with air conditioning. But these rich kids had nothing to lose, they had everything that they needed, so they were reckless. Cri-Kee blindly followed them, and one night, she went to a party where alcohol and drugs were being passed around. She knew better, she did, but when she turned from her friends to leave, she ran into her older brother. Disappointed in his little sister, he dragged her home despite her protests and her claims that she did nothing wrong. Nobody listened to her, tired of the girl that she had become, and they sent her away to Walt, a school that they could afford, so she could learn to be a better person, somebody responsible for her own actions and responsible enough to take care of her duties.
