Chapter 13:

I am Karma

who I am is not who I want to be

In the year 2016, Eighteen years old Akane had to go through a Small Jaw surgery while she was abroad. Akane's Jaw got damaged due to the Physical violence, she went through in her father's house. Unfortunately, her damaged Jaw led her to an oral health issue that has to be corrected. That Jaw injury was causing her problem while speaking in a louder voice and while laughing.Bookmark here

Akane first went through the Phenomena of exploitation of vulnerable emotions of Humans; then she figured out later the technique of exploitation of vulnerable Emotions. Akane was searching for other young hackers. She was a member of many online hacker communities. She was searching for young hackers in those online communities that she can use for completing her mission. While she was abroad, she was continually planning to kill her Dad; but Akane knew she has the power of doing worst with her father. She decided to use the Skills of hacking against Mr.Manzo. The skills (Hacking) that her dad forced her to focus on; She was planning to take revenge on Mr.Manzo by using those skills. She decided to become Karma and chase him for his lies. She pledged to herself that she will ruin everything that her dad loved more than Her. She gave a name to herself and started calling herself "Karma."Bookmark here

After staying one year aboard, Akane decided to Come Back to her hometown to take revenge on her father. Her Grandma wasn't willing with the idea of her coming back to the city " Kyoto." Her Grandma wanted her to forget about everything and move on.Bookmark here

Akane never told her Grandma about the plan of revenge. She carried out the Plan without letting her know about it. After Akane insisted many times and became stubborn on her decision of coming back. On that her Grandma tried to warn her and said:Bookmark here

" Your life is not safe here. Your dad is the enemy of your life, and You know he has many connections to find you. I'm afraid to lose you. I only have you, and if due to my irresponsible and wrong decision something happened to you; then, I won't be able to forgive myself. "Bookmark here

Akane emotionally blackmailed her and said:Bookmark here

" Grandma, I can't live a lonely life like this. I only want to see you. I'm sick of living alone. You are the dearest person to me, and my only wish is to live with you.Bookmark here

Please!!!!!Bookmark here

Allow me to come back."Bookmark here

Her Grandma allowed her to come back; but, she had three conditions that Akane must follow for Coming Back.Bookmark here

Firstly: She will not live in the same house as her Grandma. She can only come to visit her, and before visiting, she must have to inform her.Bookmark here

Secondly: Akane will not wander in the town; and, while she is outside her house, she has to wear a mask and cap to hide her face.Bookmark here

Thirdly: She will only use the gadgets her Grandma will give her, and she will not be allowed to do any job.Bookmark here

Akane decided to follow all three conditions. She loved her Grandma but not more than she loved revenge. In the year 2017, She stepped into the City of " Kyoto."Bookmark here

She took a bus and started heading toward her Grandma's Home. While leaving the bus, she forgot her book on the bus. A man saw that book and picked that book up, and followed Akane to return that book to her. That book had no name mentioned on it. The man was chasing Akane, but she didn't seem to slow down while walking.Bookmark here

That man said in a loud voice:Bookmark here

" Hey, Young Lady!!!Bookmark here

Wait, turn around!!Bookmark here

Who are you?Bookmark here

Akane turned around and looked behind and said with fear:Bookmark here

" I'm afraid that who I am is not who Want to be. I'm Karma. "Bookmark here

That man was confused by seeing her afraid. He laughed and said:Bookmark here

" I didn't mean to scare You. I'm not a bad guy. You seem to be afraid of me. I just want to confirm if this belongs to you. It has no name written on it, but I guess I saw you leaving it on the bus."Bookmark here

Akane looked into the man's hand. He was holding her book. She was relieved to see it and she said:Bookmark here

" Yes!!!Bookmark here

That book is mine. I forgot to pick it.Bookmark here

Thanks a lot for bringing it to me. "Bookmark here

That man returned the book and went toward his destination.Bookmark here

She started living as 'Karma' in a small house that her Grandma bought in her 40's. That house was not that big but had a good basement. Every day Akane reminded herself that she is not "Akane Toru." She is Karma. Due to the risk of being caught by Mr.Manzo; And the rumor of her being the murderer of Mr.Manzo's Wife, Akane couldn't afford to do a job. Her Grandma was financially supporting her.Bookmark here

Akane was Smart and Experienced enough to participate in bug hunting programs and report bugs all alone and earn money. But she wanted a bait as her teammate that has to have, somehow, any connection to the organization of "Cyber Detectives." She wanted to know about the inner matters and issues of the organization. One by One, she reached different young teenage hackers that were, somehow, connected to the organization.Bookmark here

She offered the young hackers to work with her as a bug hunter. Few agreed because of the money, and few left because they were not interested in bug bounty. But none of them were Useful to her as they weren't providing her Useful information, nor she was able to command them. She wasn't approaching them directly but only through social media. She found that she has a fault in her technique.Bookmark here

A good Hacker must have Patience and should do the investment of time in their target before hacking.Bookmark here

The Reason why Akane was only earning by doing bug hunting even though she had the experience of 3 years with the experts of " Cyber Detectives" is that she could not afford to reveal her identity by joining any Organization, or office as an Ethical Hacker or Penetration tester. Joining any office or workspace could cause her identity to get Revealed. Only Bug Bounty was a safe way for her to earn because that requires her to sit in the home, and without revealing her Face or Voice, she could do it.Bookmark here

( NOTE: A bug bounty is a global program offered to individuals who identify and report bugs back to companies, websites, or developers. These programs reward individuals for finding vulnerabilities before they become security issues. )Bookmark here

( NOTE: penetration testers are hackers that are Hired by network system owners and web-based application providers to probe for vulnerabilities that hackers with nefarious intent might be able to exploit to gather secure data and intelligence. )Bookmark here

( NOTE: jobs that hackers can do are listed below:Bookmark here

Information Security Analyst.     Security Analyst.     Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)                   Security Consultant,  (Computing / Networking / Information Technology)   Information Security Manager.     Penetration Tester. )Bookmark here

In the year 2015, When Akane left her home, she deleted all social media profiles. She got rid of everything that could cause her to get tracked. She made new fake social media profiles.Bookmark here

Saho and his Father wanted to get Akane caught at any cost. They searched so hard for Akane for a whole year but got tired when they failed to find a single thing about her. Gradually Saho forgot about her and moved on without any guilt of defaming Akane for the data breach. He was living a selfish life without the fear of Karma. Akane was also Planning to pay back Saho and his father for the lies they told.Bookmark here

For Akane, the whole world turned out to be black. The only way for her survival was to become a part of that Black world. She believed there's no survival for the white Part; so, they all end up being grey or black. Bookmark here

According to Akane, In the human world, There's no justice but only Karma. Justice is a human construct, like most features of human society. In the sense that some concept of fairness and justice is something that is a part of essentially every known human society, yes, it does exist but only because Karma exists. If there's no Karma there's no Justice. Bookmark here

Human societies have rules and norms, and there are consequences for those who transgress these rules, ranging from mild social disapproval to execution, but these rules aren't for the Rich and People who have the authority to make the rules. Justice exists as an abstract concept.Bookmark here

People in Authority are the ones who make these rules, and the people who are not in authority are the ones who have to follow these rules and will be punished if they'll go against these rules. A lot of people get confused because they mix karma and the results of their actions.Bookmark here
