A fifteen-year-old girl's clenched fists met her computer desk as she growled with frustration. Her blue eyes and her pale skin were slowly turning as red as the sandals she wore. Some of her long black hair covered her shoulders, which were actually already covered by a rainbow tie-dye shirt. The color of her hair matched the color of the shorts she wore, which ended at her knees.
"Okay, let's try this again..." she muttered, clicking on another link in the forums she frequently visited. However, instead of being greeted by a series of topics, a white screen came up alerting her of something called a memcache error.
"This isn't my concern!" she yelled, again slamming her fists onto her desk. "Why are they yelling at me over it?!"
After a minute, an idea entered her mind.
"I know! I'll call Eddie!" she declared, reaching for her phone. Eddie was her half-cousin, and he was very smart when it came to computers.
She dialed his phone number, and after about a minute, his voice came through the receiver.
"Hey, Eddie!" the girl said.
"Is that you, Natasha?" Eddie asked.
"Yeah, it's me!" Natasha replied. "Listen, do you know what a memcache error is? I seem to be getting an awful lot of them today."
"Which forum are you on?"
"Shooting Star Sea."
"Hmm...I think I have an idea. However, you'll need to come to my house for it to work."
"Okay, Eddie! See you there!"
After they hung up, Natasha quickly put her helmet on and got on her scooter. Within a few minutes, she had taken off for Eddie's house.
