Chapter 485 We Have Q!
“We’ve caught her.” When Morris’ voice rang out in the earphone, Nora had also just received a text message on her cell phone-it was from the little psycho again.
“You’re still not giving in even now? Looks like you really wish for the Smith Corporation’s downfall!
“Hehe, the Smith Corporation’s stocks have already fallen 20%. Are you still not gonna beg for mercy?
“C’mon, my little servant, make up your mind! Otherwise, even if my new toy lets you guys off, the Smith Corporation will still suffer heavy losses! How can a company that cannot even guarantee their network security be trusted?”
Nora raised her eyebrows as she read the text messages.
She ignored him and looked at the time—all the servers had successfully rebooted. Her long, slender fingers landed on the keyboard and she started to type away at high speed.
Five minutes later, all the computers in the company returned to normal!
The Smith Corporation-including all their subsidiaries that relied on the servers-was back to normal!!
As Samuel looked at all the trending topics on social media that Yvonne was showing them flash by on the computer, he became so infuriated that his blood pressure soared to the high heavens!
To be honest, he also owned some of the Smith Corporation shares and received dividends every year. Although he and Ian didn’t get along and he didn’t like Joel, should the Smith Corporation really be ruined, he would also be implicated!
This was also the reason why even though Samuel had kept on making an appearance in minor incidents over the years, apart from ruining Ian and Joel’s moods, he had never actually done anything during major incidents!
Of course, he didn’t have any authority to make any decisions, either.
However, he had never colluded with outsiders to cheat his own family’s company.
Samuel was so mad that he was practically stamping his foot. He pointed at the things on the computer screen and yelled furiously at the people around him, “Didn’t she say that she knew Q, and would ask the real Q for help? Is this what the so-called Q she invited can do?
“She’s such a jinx. She has never done anything good ever since her return to the Smiths!
“Why did she offend Q for no reason? She’s too much!”
“Oh, my shares! They have already fallen by tens of millions of dollars!”
Samuel clutched his heart and shouted to the people around him, “Remember this, if I collapse here today, it’s all because of that unfilial Nora Smith!”
The executives: “…”
No one said anything. All of them stared at the screen nervously.
Although no one was saying anything, all of them were still nervous. Given how things had already come to this point, they felt that Mr. Smith was simply too calm!
Someone swallowed. “I think it’s better that we get Ms. Smith to borrow Y from the Hunt Corporation!”
“Sigh! The Hunt Corporation’s Y is like a national treasure. How would they loan him to us so easily? Don’t even think about it!”
While they were talking-in fact, they couldn’t even bear to look at the screen anymore—they suddenly saw the one-click Delete button for the computers’ hard drives appear on the screen!
Right away, everyone panicked!
The executives looked at Joel’s office. Someone even rushed over and said, “M-Mr. Smith! If all the data in the computers are deleted, we will suffer heavy losses!”
What came out of the office was Joel’s voice that still sounded as calm and collected as ever. He said, “Got it.”
The people outside were close to going crazy from their anxiety!
However, a minute later, someone suddenly let out an exclamation.
Everyone turned and followed his gaze to see that the computers had restarted… They had succeeded!
Someone couldn’t help but ask, “Surely it’s not because they have already deleted all our data, so they decided that they can restore the computers for us now, right?”
Hearing this, the executive assistant hurriedly rushed to his workstation, opened up his hard drive, and then found that…
“Nothing was deleted!”
When the rest heard this, they all ran to their workstations excitedly!
A girl sighed emotionally and said, “Oh my god, my computer is okay now! Nothing has happened to it at all, it’s exactly the same as before! It’s as if it hadn’t been invaded at all! Ah, the picture of my idol is still here!” Another man exclaimed, “F*ck, even my porn videos are still here?”
There was a moment of silence in the executive assistant department.
The man suddenly raised his head in embarrassment and scratched his head. “I… I was just joking…”
These people, who had stayed in the office and worked overtime, were the first to discover that the network had been restored. However, spreading the news required a certain amount of time.
In a hotel room somewhere.
A man leaned against an armchair with one leg perched over the other. His black suit-clad legs were long and straight, and his leather shoes were also smooth and shiny. He looked very smug. He grinned and said, “My little servant will be reporting very soon, heh heh…” But as he said that, the assistant next to him suddenly exclaimed, “Sir, 1-look at the trending topics on social media…”
The man was taken aback for a moment. He glanced over, upon which he became dumbfounded.
Then, someone suddenly rushed over in a panic. “Sir, it’s over! Yvonne has been arrested!”
“Shit!” The man cursed in a low voice. “Useless piece of rubbish! You’re all a bunch of rubbish!”
Nora had just repaired the network when someone knocked on the door. Joel’s executive assistance said, “Mr. Smith, look at the number one trending topic!”
Number one trending topic? Joel raised his brows and looked at Nora in surprise. “You even paid to make a topic trend?”
She blinked. “What does paying to make a topic trend mean?”
Joel was dumbfounded. He’d originally thought that the incident would definitely trend on social media once Nora repaired the network, but for it to become the top trending topic so quickly, there was no doubt that someone was manipulating this behind the scenes. He’d thought that Nora was the one behind it, but in the end, she wasn’t aware at all?
While thinking about it, Joel opened Facebook. When he saw the top trending topic, he suddenly looked at Nora with a complex look on his face.
She craned her neck and looked at Joel’s hand. A resigned Joel could only hand the phone to her. “Here, take a look.”
The top trending topic wasn’t about the fact that the Smith Corporation’s network problems had been resolved. Instead, it was…
The Hunt Corporation: “Do you need Y to help? He’ll be there whenever you call. @SmithCorporation”
She looked at Joel in surprise, upon which she saw his eyes flicker a little. Then, he took the phone back, logged in to the Smith Corporation’s official Facebook page, and replied.
The Smith Corporation: “We appreciate the gesture. But The Smith Corporation is going to be fine on its own. @HuntCorporation”
Netizens who were originally unhappy about the Smith Corporation were astounded by the two posts!
“We all know that the Hunt Corporation has hired Y as their network consultant—they hired such a powerful person as a consultant to deter their enemies. But isn’t the Smith Corporation being a little too funny here? Q was the one who invaded their network, yet they are still being stubborn and refusing to accept the Hunt Corporation’s kindness!”
“What would be a good way of saying ‘We have Q.’?”
