At the same time on the topmost floor of Lu Corporation, the CEO/Chairman, stared at his phone incredulously, he could not believe that the little girl who would quiver at his presence would oh so openly ignore him. To his surprise, she had dared hang up on him, something that has never happened in all 18 years of her life and for him in more than 20 years. He'd chuckled darkly, wondering if he was wrong. Calling his assistant into his office, he'd sent him to inquire on exactly what happened, after all, regardless of how he viewed his daughter, she was still the sole heir to his company. In less than 30 minutes, his assistant was back, sporting an incredulous look, he presented a file before his CEO and while the former was perusing the file, started telling him exactly what had happened in the company that morning. It was only then that James Lu realized that his daughter whom he had looked down on was an interesting girl, she was better than what he thought. He turned his attention to the file, and realized that to his dismay, a lot of underqualified workers had been employed, and that his company was facing severe crisis at that point because of bad internal management. He wondered how his daughter had found out what was going on within a few weeks. He realized that the problem had been going on for years and he'd never found out. He started pondering just what kind of person his daughter was. He finally realized that he knew nothing about this first born of his, chuckling he picked up his phone, dialling her number, only to find it switched off, speechless, he muttered to himself "Is she avoiding me?". He couldn't find that answer to that question so he simply put down his phone, making up his mind to talk to her later, continued his work
At the same time, Xinya was sprawled out on her bed, trying to plan out her life, "I really don't want to get married out of the blues" she muttered to herself "but what to do?" Xinya picked up her phone, looked at the blank screen, sighed, and got up. She walked up to her closet, opened the door and lightly knocked purposefully against a small crack on the wall, a dialpad was revealed and Xinya punched in a password, a light click sound was heard and a mechanical voice spoke out, "voice identification" "Starlight" came a cold chilly voice, which sounded nothing like the quiet Xinya,
"pupil identification" Xinya walked forwardand stared at the crack beside the dialpad. "Click" the panel was replaced with another.
"Fingerprint identification".She placed her middle finger on the sensor in the corner of the dialpad and a fourth click sounded "Welcome Starlight" This time a cute childish voice sounded "It's been a while".
"Quite a few"
Snickering, Xinya picked up an old looking laptop from that box, she clicked shut down on the box and watched as the contraption went back to it's pre opening position, it was as if no one had ever been there before.
Xinya carried the system with her an returned to her bed, she switched it on and to her surprise, there were countless notifications, missions and assignments were aplenty as well as personal messages questioning her sudden disappearance from the circle. She smiled.
Starlight, Young Master of the hacker world, and a figure that could oh so easily, and with a single movement turn the entire hacker circle into a chaotic place. She chuckled, scrolling through the messages and alliance rankings and as she did she realized that she who had once been number two in the rankings, second only to her uncle who was the Hacker Lord and number one on the rankings was no longer in her place. She soon realized that her name was no longer in any ranking list and all of her previous records had all been smashed by a newcomer six years plus ago, she smiled remembering that most of the records were set when she was only six and that before she'd retired she broken those records several times over.
Very few people had known that her uncle Max who was her mom's younger brother and the pampered profligate who'd disappeared more than ten years ago was the world's number one hacker and the founder of the Hacker Alliance. Her father had never liked that uncle of hers who'd loved to dress sloppily and who spent most of his time playing games, but how would they have known that the games where the younger man spent most of his time was only a farce and that those games merely hid his hack history.
Her lips curled upwards uncontrollably as she remembered how her father had done everything humanly possible to prevent her uncle from being in contact with her and being a bad influence to her after she'd turned five. But how, she wondered would her father react if he found out that she'd been completely influenced by her uncle when she was only three. By the time she was three and half shed started practicing her hand speed and practicing the hacking basics and by the age of six she'd broken through as a professional hacker. She'd broken all the records in the hacker alliance and over the next five years had become the second to the Hacker Lord becoming the most qualified successor of the hacker world.
However, when she was eleven her father had found out her gaming tendencies and had seized her laptop, she'd been forced to promise to never play games and since she'd had no choice and her laptop was confiscated she'd simply promised. For seven years she'd never hacked anything not even when her uncle had sneaked into her home and installed the secret compartment in her closet. She'd done her best all through the years trying to make herself presentable before her dad but at that point she no longer found it necessary. She'd decided that she'd leave no stone unturned in her quest for success. She Xinya Adeline Lu was going to make sure of that.
With that her hands had quickly flown across the laptop as she began a series of upgrades not knowing that at the very moment she'd powered on the laptop two beams of light had shot out in two different locations. One came from an office on the highest level of the base of the Hacker Alliance where a man languidly turned to look at the object disrupting his meeting as his face showed a gentle smile which shocked his subordinates who had come to view him as a blood sucking devil, In a voice that could only be described as gentle he said "The Young Lord is back... I thought it'll require a couple more years for her to come back to her senses".And the other chime had come from a hidden room in a huge mansion where another man had simply muttered "Finally" before sending out a series of notifications.
Unaware, Xinya had focused on her laptop, accepting and completing missions at a fast pace.
The sun slowly begun to set and the rays shone a young girl with her face slightly tilted, looking languid while her hands moved at an incredibly fast speed, her aura strong and addictive. At that moment she was not Xinya Lu, rather she was Starlight, the Arrogant Young Lord
After a tiring 4 hours before a laptop, Xinya found herself with a new Swiss account and a bank balance of a few tens of millions. Her name once buried under the dust along side thousands of others, had once again swept through the list in the space of a couple of hours, she'd made it into the top one thousand, her eyes lingered on the verification button besides her name. She didn't know it but at that moment her actions had caused a ripple in the Hacker world. She had jumped into the nine hundreds and still moving upwards. She smiled, wondering to herself if her father would let her back out of the marriage agreement if she filled in the gaps in finances and if she found him a good financial advisor. "If I handed him a few couple of millions, would he die of a heart attack"She wondered to herself"or would he accuse me of robbing a bank?" Xinya chuckled at her thoughts.
Mu Feng raised his brows wondering exactly what the woman beside him planned to say. He watched as she walked pass him and out into the night. The lights formed a hallow around her making her look distinctly beautiful. He sighed, getting up and wondering to himself exactly what she planned to say. As soon as Mu Feng entered the garden he caught sight of Xinya who was leaning on a tree, a stem wound round her in her hand. She looked quite at ease and very different from the girl he'd seen the moment he'd entered the Lu's home. "What's up" A cold voice fell through Xinya looked up, her distracted thoughts interrupted, reminding her of the reason she stepped into the cold night. "Young Master Mu, I don't know how this engagement fell into place and I am really not interested in fulfilling it neither do I think that based on your attitude so far that you are interested. So I would like you to talk to your parents while I speak to my father a
It was another anoyingly slow day for Lu Xinya in the office, while she loved getting back at others, doing it in secret was more of her but now she had to get the company on track as well as join the board of directors meeting that afternoon as well as a contract discussion which meant everyone will know her identity. She had promised her Dad that she would be able to get the money required to get the company back in track without the help of the Mus but instead of agreeing to call of the marriage, the man had told her that her marriage was a must. He had reiterated that while he wasn't extremely fond of her and while he hadn't spent much time on her, he still loved her and that the reason for her marriage was even more serious than company funds. He hinted that it was very serious but refused to say anything else. Lu Xinya had begun wondering if she had been wrong. At that point there was a knock on her door. "Come in" A young girl of about 22, dres
It was currently 1:45pm. Lu Xinya walked into the boardroom. There were more than ten men already seated there. Four of them were minor share holders with no decision rights and who merely came to the board meetings to establish presence and fill up space. She ran through the information she had of the company in her head. Her father was the major share holder with 53% of the shares. Her uncle held the position of the second largest with 19%, she held third with 18%, The Mu's held 5% and the four shareholders there shared the remaining 5%. This made her father the major share holder with major decision making right especially since he could access the 37% held by this brother-in-law and his daughter. However with Lu Xinya turning 18, she gained access to managing both her own shares but the shares owned by her uncle by default since she was also her uncle's legal heir. She greeted the men and sat down on the seat reserved for the third largest share holder even though she co
While Lu Xinya tore the executives apart, exposing their stupidity, a man was fascinated while watching her. Mu Feng stood in the hallway with his people, his expression filled with shock. He felt like he was seeing her for the first time. It turned out the little girl of that year had grown up.Her It was late in the evening at The Everglades, one of the most upscale bars in F city. Two men could be seen sitting in a private room on the second floor. They were talking as they drank. The two men were Mu Feng, Vice President of Mu Corporation and Nate Yang, CEO Blaze Conglomerate, another international company on par with Mu Corporation. Both men were best friends who had gone to high school and university together. Together with Franklyn Saunders, a world class hacker, they made an invincible trio. Unfortunately, Franklyn had been called back to the headquarters by the Hacker Lord owing to the return of the Young Master of the Hacker Alliance.The three men, despite being best friends had vastly different characters.Nate, was a typical young rich heir. He was basically a sunshine boy as well as a player. He was technically a clown. His love for gossip was unrivalled and his ability to dig for it was as professional as that of the paparazzi. Well what could on

Meanwhile,Under the the cover of the apparently peaceful night, the entire Hacker Alliance was thrown into confusion. In one night, one hacker had suddenly begun infiltrating the defences of the Hacker Alliance. Several hackers were woken up from sleep with the knowledge that the Hacker Alliance System was being hacked into.The annoying thing was that the hacker left images of a red rose with the solar system in the background at every surveillance point in the intranet. There was no name or reason. It was obvious that the other party was just there to catch fun.Lu Xinya had just finished taking a bath. She decided to leave her uncle a big welcome present. Hacking into the Hacker Alliance's firewall and filtering through its sensitive information sounded like fun. Besides, she had always wanted to see how well protected the firewall was.She logged into her system and directly entered the website for the hacker alliance. It was the communication
It was barely 7am, when Lu Xinya walked in through the doors of Lu Corporations. She had a cup of coffee in her hands feeling incredibly sleepy, having stayed up all night to launch an attack on the Hacker Alliance.She smiled recalling what she'd seen in front of her computer when she'd woken up. After an all night attack which her uncle, who she suspected, deliberately did not appear, she woke up to a poppy flower surrounded by badly mutilated red roses with their stalks in front of her computer's desktop. It's warning was obvious. She chuckled. That old guy could still find annoyingly funny ways to threaten someone.'Will that old guy feel annoyed at the massive infiltration of his base?'Lu Xinya shook her head focusing on the documents before her. She had a meeting with a representative of Mu Conglomerates.After the last board meeting, her father had placed her in charge of the Cooperation with Mu Conglomerates.Soon her secretary came to in
