Tanwyn sat on the bench across from the girl and pulled out her phone .
She deftly hacked into the girls laptop and blacked out her screen .
"What the fuck?" Holly whispered to herself . She furiously hacked at her keyboard .
Tanwyn smiled . She sent a message to the girl's screen .
Look up .
The girl looked up from her screen Tanwyn saw the terror in her eyes .
Don't be afraid . We aren't here to hurt you .
Holly shook her head and attempted to type back .
Holly shakily pulled out her cellphone . Tanwyn killed it with a keystroke .
The girl looked panicked .
We have seen your work .
Holly took a deep breath . Tanwyn watched as she pulled back her hair and tied it with a bandanna .
She pulled a USB drive from a pocket on her jacket and plugged it into the laptop .
Tanwyn nodded in approval as she lost control of the girls laptop .
Tanwyn felt a rush of air and a shadow crossed her screen . Tanwyn looked up to see the girl looming over her .
"Who are you?"
"Excuse me?" Tanwyn frowned
Holly leaned into Tanwyn's face . Her dark eyes gleaming . Not with anger, or fear, but curiosity .
"You hacked me. You're wearing some sort of weird pip-boy looking thing ."
Tanwyn glanced down at her arm . Surprised that the girl could see it . She squinted
"And fake freckles went out of style years ago. "
Tanwyn sighed . She patted the bench next to her .
The Holly sat .
"Are you with Anonymous?"
Tanwyn shook her head .
"You know , anonymous? That big secret group of hackers . They leak the names of racists and shit ."
Tanwyn looked at her incredulously .
"No, but I'm glad you'd be excited to join them ."
"Well if you're not Them then-" The girl huffed .
The Holly tilted her head .
"Sorry . That just not a question I get asked often ."
"Clearly ." The girl crossed her arms across her chest . "So what do you want from me?"
Tanwyn slipped a small silver device from her pocket . She activated it, and slipped it to the girl .
" This device has access to all of the personal data for every individual in a one thousand kilometer radius ."
The girl snorted a laugh .
"Get out . That's fucking impossible . That's -" She watched the data stream down the front of the device . "That's my IP address ." She selected it and read the next line . "My name . My grades in school . My medical records . "
"Your financial statements, the blueprints for your childhood home . How old you were when you commited your first felony cyber attack on a classified installation ." Tanwyn smiled .
The girl looked down .
Tanwyn gently placed a hand on her shoulder .
"Look, I'm not here to judge you for your actions . And I'm not here to blackmail you . I just wanted to offer you the chance to work with that ." She pointed to the device .
"And what do I have to do?"
Tanwyn grinned .
"Walk with me ."
