CHAPTER TWO: THE COMPUTER

    Melissa walked into the lounge where Eric was doing his homework and Sarah was reading a magazine. It was Monday evening at 20:17.

    “Sarah,” Melissa said, “my computer just got delivered this afternoon.”

    “Cool!” Sarah grinned. “Can we go check it out? I just heard of this great website called, Underage Drinkers Against Drunk Driving. It’s supposed to be really good.”

    “As soon as I figure out how to get it set up.” Melissa agreed.

    “You need help?” Eric volunteered.

    Melissa’s eyes opened wider. “Oh, that would be excellent! I’d much rather have you help me than ask a sophomore. You know how they love to make fun of us freshmen.” she said.

    Eric stood up, and Melissa led him to her dorm room.

    “You know, that was really good the way you helped out when that little girl got hurt out in the parking lot. I was impressed.” Melissa said.

    “Well, what else am I gonna do, just walk away and leave her there to bleed?” Eric asked.

    Melissa cleared the top of her desk as Eric began opening the boxes.

    Eric set up the computer, installed the operating system, connected it to the internet and to the printer-fax-scanner. He explained everything he did, so Melissa would understand the process. It was 22:03 when he was finally finished. “I guess you’re all set, then.” he said, as he turned for the door.

    “Do you have to leave so soon?” Melissa asked, smiling at him.

    Eric was stumped. “Well, you have everything set up and running,” he shrugged. He looked at her. “Was there anything else you needed?”

    Melissa sighed, and shook her head. “Oh, no. Nothing.”

    “Okay, then. See ya.” Eric smiled, and walked away.
