"Plus, it's not like Chui Ming's a saint. He has quite a few skeletons in his closet. Yes, my target is Wu Rong and Wushuang but I would have to take him into consideration as well. You think he will sit quietly as I cross swords with his wife and mother-in-law?"
Xia Zhi finally understood.
His sister was helping him take revenge against the unholy trinity. It was all parts of her vengeance plot.
He had been kept completely in the dark.
"Sis, you should have told me, I would love to assist you. You can't count me out in your vengeance plan, I'm your family, I'll stick by you," Xia Zhi commented.
His willingness to support her without question and without fear of retribution touched Xinghe.
Xinghe smiled and replied, "Zhi, don't worry too much about it. I won't do anything that's overtly illegal, and I'm sure no one can trace it back to me."
Xia Zhi sighed in relief. He asked, "That's good because I don't want anything bad to happen to you, sis. Then, what shall we do next?"
He was ready to take the world down with her.
The thrill of the moment was coursing through his veins.
Xinghe stared at the laptop screen, a calculative sheen in her eyes.
"Now, we wait," she finally said.
Xia Zhi looked at her with surprise. "For?"
"For the reward to rise up to 10,000,000 RMB, then you come find me."
"10,000,000 RMB?" Xia Zhi was slack jawed.
Chui Corps would offer so much money to fix a virus?
Xia Zhi wouldn't believe it but since his sister told him to wait for the number to climb, so he did. His biggest fear was for someone to manage to neutralize the virus before the reward reached that level.
Xia Zhi wasn't stupid, he had correctly guessed the reason Xinghe released the virus was to rip Chui Corps off.
Xia Zhi didn't mind the dirty tactics since their opponent weren't exactly fair players either but he was afraid her plan might fail.
He still found it quite implausible that Chui Corps would raise the reward money to 10,000,000 RMB.
And yet, before dinner, Chui Corps did end up increasing the reward money to 10,000,000 RMB!
This time, Xia Zhi almost genuflected before Xinghe, she had reached a godlike status in his mind.
"Sis, how did you know this will happen?" Xia Zhi asked her excitedly.
Xinghe replied with a faint smile, "Because I have confidence no one else but me could take down this virus."
If this virus didn't meet a timely end, it would be the end for Chui Ming's company.
His company's main product was security software and Xinghe's virus specifically targeted his company's King Kong Internet Security.
Her virus didn't do much, at least nothing seriously harmful, it would only crash the infected computer once or twice every day.
Who would want that
The virus had been released for only a few days, but the financial losses for Chui Corps were astronomical. They needed to do everything they possibly could to stop the virus.
Therefore, if someone really could help them take down the virus, 10,000,000 RMB was worth it.
Xinghe blinked her eyes. "He should be thankful that I'm not greedy. I only want 10,000,000 RMB from him."
Xia Zhi looked at his sister skeptically.
Sis, are you sure you're not greedy?
He couldn't help but feel sorry for Chui Ming.
Yes, Chui Ming was responsible for his physical wounds but if Xia Zhi had known there was 10,000,000 RMB waiting for him after the fact, he believed he would be more than willing to take a beating. All in all, the exchange was heavily tipped in their favor.
If Chui Ming knew his actions would end up with him getting such a disadvantageous bargain, one wonders if he would punch himself in regret?
