As soon as Shelia sent that message, the person she was in contact with tried to invite her to a video
call, but she declined the invitation, (Q): Boss, is it really you? Why aren‘t you answering my video call?
Shelia couldn‘t answer it, because she wasn‘t in her original body, she was in Rachel‘s.

If she accepted the video call, the person would see Rachel‘s face, and that was the end of it.

Even if she managed to narrate Shelia‘s entire life, nobody would believe she was actually Shelia.

After all, something as fantastical and mysterious as rebirth was unbelievable.

But since she had claimed she was Shelia, she must find a way to prove it.

Her eyes darkened as she invited Q to a voice call.

Fortunately, Rachel‘s voice was similar to her own.

It would be difficult to tell the difference if the listeners didn‘t listen carefully.

On top of that, although her soul was trapped in Rachel‘s body right now, she knew she was still Shelia.

She could still act and talk just like the Shelia Q knew.

Soon, the man answered the call; his voice, trembled with excitement.

"Boss, is that really you?" he stammered.

Rachel took a sip of water from the nightstand and cleared her throat.

"It‘s me, Quintin."

The moment Quintin heard her familiar voice, he was sitting in front of his computer, and he jumped up
while holding his slim laptop.

His eyes widened in surprise as he looked at the dialog box on the screen, trying to confirm that the
account he was having a voice call with was indeed his boss‘.

"Boss! It‘s really you, isn‘t it?"

Quintin freed one of his hands to rub his eyes.

He just couldn‘t believe what was happening.

"How many more times are you going to ask me that question? Yes, it‘s me! It‘s Shelia, you dolt."

Rachel shook her head helplessly, and said, "If you don‘t believe me, ask me anything."

‘How many people could speak in that tone?‘ Quintin thought to himself.

‘Even if she was imitating my boss‘ voice, there‘s no way their tones could be that similar.‘ With that in
mind, he blurted out, "Of course, I believe you!"

However, when he remembered the funeral he had attended, Quintin‘s excitement died down.

"How long have you known me?" Quintin asked as he sat down while placing his laptop on the desk.

He stared at the screen as if he was desperate to see the person at the other end of the line through
the laptop‘s monitor.

Shelia had died.Her funeral was held just a week ago.

It was arranged by her fiance, and her best friend.

Only a few people attended the wake, for no one was willing to have any connection with a traitor who
had been in prison, in spite of the fact that she was now dead.

After Quintin came home from the funeral, he had been visiting the forum and staring at the ID of "King
of Hearts" in his contact list every single day.

The account‘s profile picture had been grayed out, and yet Quintin dreamt of a day that it might light up
again, and the user of the account would tell him that Shelia had returned.

To some, a week was a short span of time, but it felt like an eternity to Quintin.

The reality that Shelia was never coming back from the dead really did a number on him, but he forced
himself to gradually Quintin The Minion accept that fact.

The reason Quintin logged into the forum tonight was because he wanted to close his account, so that
he could start forgetting Shelia, and move on with his life.

However, he never once imagined that he would receive a message from King of Hearts.

And when he saw the familiar opening line of their conversation, Quintin‘s mind went blank.

The blood in his body froze for a moment, and his hands trembled while typing on the keyboard.

"I‘ve known you for six years, Quintin.Ever since the first day you joined the alliance.I crushed you that
same day, and from then on, you became my lackey.I also punished you by making you clean the
bathroom for a month." Rachel grinned after saying that.

Quintin was rendered speechless.

‘Well, you didn‘t have to tell me that in detail,‘ he thought.

Six years ago, Quintin joined the alliance by rising to the top.He was a young, energetic, and proud

However, he had a haughty attitude that could get on people‘s nerves.

Back then, Shelia was the youngest senior leader of the alliance, and she was a year younger than

At the welcome ceremony, he pointed at her while she was standing among the senior leaders issued a
duel with her.

ema was The second Quintin finished talking, the entire place fell silent.

Everyone‘s eyes fell on Shelia at the same time.

To everyone‘s surprise, she didn‘t seem to be interested in what just happened.

She was just playing mobile games on her phone.



After wiping out the entire opposing team, Shelia destroyed the enemy team‘s nexus and won the

Once the game was over, the system prompt resounded from her mobile phone, breaking the silence.

It was then that Shelia put down her phone and realized that everyone was staring at her.

She turned to Quintin and asked, "Oh, you want to challenge me, huh?"

The corners of his mouth twitched, and he suddenly felt humiliated by what Shelia had done.

Staring at her, he replied, "Yes, that‘s right.If I win, I shall take your place as a senior leader!"

Everyone was silenced by his declaration.

‘The nerve of this guy,‘ Shelia thought.

She flashed him a casual smile.She was one of the sexiest and most beautiful women in the alliance.

Her smile was so charming that it overshadowed the floral decorations in the room.

"Okay, but what happens if you lose?"

"I‘ll do whatever you ask me to do," Quintin responded.

Shelia chuckled, tilted her head to the side, and raised an eyebrow.

"Well, if you lose, you‘re going to clean the bathroom for a month.In addition, you have to become my
minion.There‘s no room for regret, and no turning back!"

Being Shelia‘s follower meant that Quintin would remain inferior to her forever, no matter how high his
position would become.

"Fine!" he replied through gritted teeth.

"I‘ll never regret it!"

Shelia nodded with satisfaction.

Afterwards, she sent someone to bring them two laptops and a table.

Shelia and Quintin sat on opposite sides of the table, surrounded by onlookers, while the other senior
executives just shook their heads and sighed.

The theme of the competition was chosen by Quintin, and he was an expert at it.Around five minutes
later, the competition was over.

It happened so fast that nobody could even react in time.

Shelia closed her laptop, leaned back, and crossed her legs.

"You can call me ‘boss‘ from now on," she declared.

Quintin, on the other hand, was too astonished to respond at the moment.He just stared at her in

‘I lost.I was utterly defeated!‘ He didn‘t even stand a chance against Shelia.From the very beginning, he
couldn‘t do anything against her.From then on, everyone in the Red Hackers alliance knew that Quintin,
the second most talented hacker since the establishment of this alliance, suffered a tremendous defeat
against Shelia, and became her minion.

In addition, he had to clean the toilet for a whole month, which was deathly humiliating.

"Five years ago, my boss and I left the alliance‘s base for a month.What task did we perform that

Quintin‘s eyes lit up when he asked that second question.

His first encounter with Shelia was not exactly a secret.

If someone was to pretend to be her, she just needed to ask around and everyone would tell her the
same story.

He needed to ask something more private.

There were two kinds of tasks for the hackers in the Red Hackers alliance.

The first one was top secret, and the other was for profit.

It depended on the individual whether he or she would accept the task or not, but everyone in the
alliance was required to accept a top secret task from time to time.

Aside from the hackers themselves and their partners, even their immediate supervisors had no right to
know the contents of the top secret task.

Therefore, no one should know about the task other than Quintin and Shelia.

"We were tasked to cover up the whereabouts of target No.0216, who was about to return home from
the drug dealing base in Burma.

We were also required to make sure that he can return home safe and sound, and put an end his
mission of being an undercover cop.

Thus, we stayed at the border for a month, in order to intercept all the surveillance cameras and the
Sky Eye tracking system."

"How did that mission end?"

Quintin felt nervous to hear Rachel‘s answer.
