The computer

by Emma Philipps | Score: 2450

Nathan starts his computer. He wants to play to Betrayal, a game online that his friend Timothy has showed him. He searches "gogo games" and clicks on "Betrayal". Start.  But the computer does nothing. 
"Er, hello ?"  says Nathan at his computer. 
The computer doesn't react. 
"What the... It doesn't work !
Nathan looks at his wristwatch. 11.00 p.m.  
"Should work..." he whispers. 
Nathan always plays at the new games of Timothy at night. He sleeps during the lessons. His notes are bad, he doesn't care. He wants to be a game designer. And he is still learning about how the computers work. 
"Wait... I know !" 
Nathan can go to see  Edward ! He is a pharmacist. He'll know what to do ! He is up until very late in the nicht, so there won't be any problem.  
Nathan takes his computer and leaves. 

"Hi, Edward !" 
"Huh ? Oh ! Hi Nathan !" 
"I've come to show you my computer. It isn't working."
Edward takes a clamp, opens the computer and twist something.
