I am hacking government secrets
Chapter 1
I was in.
The government server was mine, and I had full access to everything on it.
It was like a dream come true for me, a hacker who’d been trying to break into the government’s servers for years.
And now, I’d finally done it.
I’d finally hacked into the most secure server in the world.
I’d finally outsmarted the best hackers in the world.
I’d finally made it to the top of the hacking world.
And now, I was going to see what secrets the government was hiding from us all.
I opened up one of the files on my screen and started reading it, but I didn’t get very far before I realized that it was encrypted.
"Shit," I muttered under my breath as I closed out of the file and tried another one, only to find that it was encrypted too.
"Fuck."
"What’s wrong?" Leo asked me over our private chat room.
"I can’t read any of these files," I told him.
"They’re all encrypted."
It's so beautiful.
I was in shock; I couldn't believe it had actually happened.
It was one of my long-time goals, and now that I'd achieved it, I was on top of the world.

I'd spent years trying to hack into this server, and now that I'd finally done it, I was so happy that I thought I might cry.
Of course, I couldn't do that; if anyone saw me crying over a hack job, they'd wonder what was wrong with me.
Besides, this was only the first step—if I wanted to stay inside the government's server for a long time, then I needed to be careful about what I did and who knew about it.

The government servers were some of the most secure in the world, and if anyone found out that I'd hacked into one, then they would be after me in an instant.
I would have to be extra careful from now on—make sure that no one could track my IP address or find out who I was.
But even though I knew how dangerous this situation was, part of me didn't care; I'd achieved my goal, and nothing else mattered to me at that moment.

"Let's see if bypassing the encryption protocol might give us an edge."
I (Jamie Carter) had just successfully hacked into a government server.
It was the most significant accomplishment of my career as a hacker, and something that few in the hacking community would ever experience.
Gaining access to such a highly secure system was akin to scaling an impenetrable fortress, which made it all the more thrilling for me.
The adrenaline rush was exhilarating as I navigated through the network, my heart pounding with each step.
All I wanted to do was explore and see what information was hidden behind those virtual walls.
I didn’t have any particular goal in mind other than to satisfy my curiosity and enjoy the ride.
As much as my achievement thrilled me, there was also an undercurrent of anxiety running beneath the surface.
If anyone were to catch me snooping around their system, there would be severe consequences—possibly even criminal charges.

That thought only added to the excitement of the moment, as I relished the risk I was taking.
My fingers flew across my keyboard as I clicked through the files, searching for something that would give me a clue as to what this server was used for.
My heart pounded in my chest, and I could feel the adrenaline coursing through my veins.
I’d never hacked into a government server before, and it was by far one of the most exciting things that had ever happened to me as a hacker.
It was like climbing Mount Everest or running a marathon; it was such an incredible rush that I didn't even know how to put it into words.
There were so many possibilities—so many things that I could find out—but there was also so much at stake.

My fingers flew across the keys, and after spending several minutes bypassing their security protocols, I finally made my way into their files.
I smiled at the sight of all the documents sprawled out before me; this was what I’d been looking for.
I couldn’t wait to see what secrets this server held—what kind of information the government tried so hard to keep hidden from everyone else.
My smile grew wider as I opened up one file after another and started reading them; this was going to be so much fun.
But then my smile faded when I realized that every single file was encrypted.
"Are you kidding me?"
I muttered under my breath as I tried opening up another one, only to find that it too was encrypted.
"God damn it."
I briefly considered trying to decrypt one of the files myself but quickly abandoned the idea—it would take me too long, and there were too many other files here that I wanted to read.
Besides, I wasn't sure if I could crack their encryption protocols; they were some of the best in the world, and it might take me months before I could figure out how they worked.

"Maybe it's time to use that new decryption tool we've been saving."
"Maybe," I replied with a sigh, "I really don’t want to wait that long though."
Leo was right, we had been sitting on that tool for months now—it was designed to help us decrypt files like these—but I’d been so busy with other things that I hadn’t gotten around to using it yet.
Now I wished I had; those seemingly random strings of numbers and letters could have held the secrets to some of the biggest scandals in history, but unfortunately I was never going to know what they said unless we decrypted them first.
I sighed again as I opened up another file, only to find that it too was encrypted; there were so many files here that there was no way we could decrypt all of them before the government figured out we were here.
This had gone from being one of the most exciting moments in my life to one of the most frustrating in a matter of minutes; I couldn’t believe it.
As soon as Leo heard me sigh again he started laughing; apparently he’d been waiting for me to finally admit defeat because his laughter instantly filled the chat room.
"What’s so funny?"
I asked irritably as I tried opening up yet another file—only to find that it too was encrypted—while Leo’s laughter continued ringing in my ears.
"Nothing," Leo replied a few seconds later once he’d finally gotten himself under control again, "you’re just getting a taste of your own medicine."
"And what exactly is that supposed to mean?"
I demanded; I had no idea what Leo was talking about.

"You know exactly what I’m talking about," Leo said with a grin, "you’ve rubbed your victories in my face countless times before; now it’s my turn to do the same."
I glared at him for a few seconds before rolling my eyes and shaking my head; he was right.
Leo had just managed to hack into one of the biggest banks in America earlier today—and he’d done it without getting caught.
He had every right to gloat about his victory; after all, if our positions were reversed I would be doing the exact same thing to him.
"Fine," I grumbled as I opened up yet another file—only to find that it too was encrypted, "I’ll let you have this one."
"Aw, how gracious of you," Leo replied playfully.
"Don’t get used to it," I shot back with a smile before turning back to the task at hand.
"You might have won this round but that doesn't mean you'll win them all."
That comment only made Leo laugh again because he knew me better than that; we had been competing against each other since we were kids and something like this wasn’t going to change that.
