|Hack Me Now
Author: patricia61922 PM
An atypical story about a hacker who tests her limits and goes to places few ever return from. I changed the title from "UNKNOWN. One in a crowd. One of a kind. One alone." to "Hack Me Now" because I thought that the new title was shorter and better suited to the story.

If you are confused about the name change, I thought that this one sounded better and fit the storyline.
When I went home, I found a letter addressed to me from the Soaring Butterflies Teen Program. I though it was a joke because the name sounded like a program for elementary school kids. The only thing that stopped me from throwing it away was that there was no return address, no stamp, and in the recipient information area, it said "Sophia Tarms aka PurpleCow." PurpleCow is my online username and the name I give out to clients from UNKNOWN. Not even my parents know about my alias, PurpleCow. (Not like this is a big point because most teenagers don't tell their parents everything anymore.)
I immediately went online to talk to the other members of UNKNOWN. They too had received letters with their username attached. Since there was no stamp, we knew that the sender had personally pushed the letters through the slot. This meant that whoever it was, Soaring Butterflies was a group that had people that lived close to all of us and knew where we each lived. We decided to open the letter together though secure online video chat. Inside, we found an application for a summer program that would test our individual limits. The warning label told us that whether we passed the test or not, we would come out changed, physically and/or mentally.
And, of course, being the teenage criminals that we are, we immediately accepted the challenge. First, we hacked the Soaring Butterflies website. Well, TRIED is a better word for it. We used our basic Trojan Horse programs and even put in a few creative new twists to it, but nothing could go through the firewall. We really needed to know how this mysterious group was able to find out our secrets. We all knew when we created the group the risks of being on the black side of the law. We needed to get in to erase any trace of our criminal activities.
When we saw the code for their firewall, I felt the blood drain out of my face. It was a code harder than anything I have broken through before. The only code I knew that had such a good encryption was the CIA. I have never personally tried to hack the CIA before, but I've heard the stories. I saw the same look on the faces of my other group members.
"Oh my god."
"This can't be right."
"We aren't having a nightmare, right?"
"What does this mean?"
What do you think? Please review and tell me! =^_^=
