Xinya walked through the doors of Lu Corporation dressed in a classy black trouser suit, a pair of heels and a smile plastered over her face. As she walked in she soon became the topic of discussion across the reception since she had become one of the most controversial topics in the company. People could not fathom how a girl with seemingly no background could easily complete all the tasks assigned to her with no mistakes and how she always seemed to be classily dressed, even in nameless brands. A lot of people believed she was someone's mistress but there was no evidence to prove it and because of the fact that she had refused to date anyone regardless of who and the extreme politeness and coldness she seemed to exude she had earned the title of the ice queen yet somehow she never seemed to care.
Nodding at the people who said a greeting to her, Xinya made her way to the accounts department, where she got blocked by Kira, an intern with the Finance department which was right next to the Accounts department. Kira was one of the interns who had gotten into the company by sleeping with one of the team leaders in the company and had continuously gotten things done by buttering up the said higher-up. Kira was a problematic individual who believed everything should go her way and she hated Xinya who had no scandals within the company but got things done quickly. She was the perfect example of a white lotus and spent a lot of time framing others. Several team members of hers had gotten into trouble over her issues and had been scolded for no reasons.
Xinya had initially had no intention of entertaining her and had initially wanted to walk away but Kira had not wanted to let her go so Xinya had coldly tried to walk past Kira with the words "letgo". But Kira had immediately fallen to the ground screamed and begun claiming that Xinya had pushed her down. "What did I do to you for you to shove me down? I know you hate me but this is a public place so you should pay attention to your image. We can get along well or you can pretend not to see me, I didn't do anything" she said looking pitiful like she'd been bullied and as she remained on the floor looking all pitiful it indeed looked like Xinya had bullied her. At this point a lot of employees had walked out and on seeing Xinya standing and looking at Kira in mockery had instantly taken Kira's side feeling like Kira had been bullied. The Finance department's team leader who was in a relationship with Kira had walked out and on seeing Kira on the floor had without asking any questions asked Xinya to go and pick up her pay with the Finance department and to never show up again in the company.
"Go and pick up you monthly pay from the Finance department. You don't need to come back tomorrow either."
Xinya looked at him emotionlessly with a mocking glint in her eyes.
"Are you sure you want me to pick up my pay and resign?"
The team leader had felt she didn't take him seriously and had berated her all over and insisted on her leaving the company
Xinya smiled, a mocking smile as she'd calmly replied "I hope you do not regret it".
Then as she turned in her heels she'd said " Oh, and do remember to check the survelance cameras, I think they captured everything" "And team leader don't bother having it deleted, it would be impossible to delete it now" she said waving her phone as she sauntered away. Everyone could see that she hadn't seemed to care if she had a job or not. But the problem was "How did she manage to get her hands on the footage?" Very few people knew but Kenzie was also a world class hacker, however she'd rarely used that skill. At that point however, she'd really not cared anymore and had lost all hope in her dad so she'd chosen to become a full time hacker.
She had pulled out her phone and dialled her father's number. After 3 rings he responded rather impatiently"I'm busy, what is it?". Xinya smiled, her expression mocking as she replied,
"I've been fired"
" What did you do" The man questioned believing that the problem was his daughter. To him, his daughter was just an incompetent little girl. He'd never viewed her as someone capable of anything.
"Rather than wondering what I did I think you should check on the number of illegal and unethical workers in your company maybe you can find out what is or rather who is syphoning your funds. Xinya decisively cut the call feeling rather bitter. Her thoughts running wild as she walked towards the coffee shop besides the company. Taking a window seat she'd ordered a cup of bitter coffee as she let herself reminiscize about the past.
Growing up she'd never remembered having a father's love after her mom died. That term to her was distant, initially, her father had showered her with endless love and had adored her, she could faguely remember that her parents had been in love and her mother had rejected a marriage arranged for her which had led to the family cutting off ties with her. She wondered if her father would have been more caring if her mom was still alive. Xinya had always known even as a child that she was expected to marry someone of equal or higher status and that her marriage would be expected to bring benefits for both parties but she'd never expected that her father would sell her off as a good to the highest bidder. At that point she'd wondered if her father would call off the marriage contract if he had enough money to ensure his company pulled out of this crisis. At this point, Xinya hadn't realized it, but she was on her way to becoming the fiercely independent woman who would stun her country. She had begun to lose that innate, lingering fear she'd felt for her father, she was beginning to shed the quiet, mild air around her gaining a domineering air that would follow her for life. Xinya had begun to plan her life promising herself that regardless of what the future held she would never let herself fall into a situation where she would need someone to hold her up or into a situation where she would need to rely on others. With a cold look in her eyes, Xinya promised to become the best version of herself, and maybe several years later when she would think back to this very day, Xinya would remember the overwhelming despair she started that day with and the unwavering determination she ended the day with. She would remember that on this very day, she'd begun to build the foundations of the life that she had always wanted. But these were all in the future, and at this point, Xinya had merely gotten up, shedding all vestige of the person she used to be, starting on the part to become a new version of herself.
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 attenti
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
