The sky darkens as small flying objects gather closer to the clouds, covering the world into cold darkness, and waves of noise from above interrupt the silence of the empty city. The swarm of artificial intelligence that had ascended into the sky, gathers and formed a barrier one by one. Every continent had to face the same scene, the cities had now been captured and had been left empty like a ghost town.
Months ago, people who are found while in hiding are taken away.
The civilians had given up fighting knowing their enemies had the upper hand but a few people around the world had stood their ground and worked secretly from the eyes of the Order.
" --- Base 879 is under attack!! " she could see the static images of a man in a lab gown inside the command room calling for help.
Her eyes then travel to the hundreds of images, the blue light covering the whole room as she stares at the screens.
" --- The High Order has breached our system-- the base can't hold on much longer--- this is northeast base Ea.447-"
" --- south eat base Th.65 is down--- I repeat---don't send---back-up---"
" This is the north base, commanding all base to hold on, we are mobilizing our troops--"
" --Send help!------Please! Help us! We don't want to d- "

A woman was standing inside an isolated research facility and looking at the hundreds of screens in disbelief, the screens showed images of live coverage from working CCTVs around the world.
She, who was still a wanted hacker and had been an enemy of every government in all nations, was now reduced to a state of a helpless person hiding inside a research institution surrounded by A.I's high technology commanded by the High Order.
All she could do is watch the situation outside every day.
As she saw an image of the floating tech roaming around the streets of cities and even inside of a few remaining facilities and militarily base. It was a horrifying scene, the image of seeing chaos and disruption, and knowing your the next one who will be captured once these high intelligence techs finds its way to unblock the firewall she created to protect herself.
"How did it turn out like this?... " with a cold sweat running down her forehead, she stood there holding her broken laptop, not knowing if she should proceed with helping.
All of a sudden was a terrifying shake from the ground making her lose her balance, resulting for her laptop to shut down when it falls to the ground and then a loud explosion was heard, throwing her to the side of the wall.
The impact had made her sight blurry, accompanied by a loud ringing in her ear. Everything turned hazy and she couldn't see anything clearly, only her sense of smell was heightened with the lack of her eyes and ears, and then there, she could smell dust and smoke, the heat she felt that stings and burn her skin felt like fire. The fallen debris and dust had covered her and the impact that she received from the sudden blow had resulted to her head being dizzy and even a visible broken limb.
With so much pain and confusion, she thought " Ah, so this is how I die? "
Without realizing the footsteps of unknown people hastily entering the room, she looked at the shadowy figures before her eyes turned dull and her line of sight turned dark.
She lost consciousness and her breathing stops.
The sudden memories of her original world woke her up in the middle of the night. Eyes wide as she stares up the high ceiling, and a few hurried breathing could be heard in the quiet room.
Only the light illuminating from outside the glass wall of the high-rise building was the reason why she could see where she was at the moment in the dimly illuminated room.
Eve had thought she would never see her original world again, seeing how it had been years... centuries... even probably a millennium that she had been stuck in this current system-like world, she had never even dreamed of it whenever she slept.
What was that?
After losing consciousness, Eve had entered a space where her soul could travel to different worlds and where a system decides your actions, not giving you any better choices as it guides you to your death. She can't even count the number of world she had been to nor the many bodies she possessed once she enters a world.
Eve wipes away a cold sweat running down her neck and forehead. The memories of the last thing she experienced before being sent into this fabricated world, made her think that there must be something wrong with the system.
As she said before, never had she dreamed of anything when entering any world.
Every day, it's always a dreamless night for her.
Something isn't right, she thinks.
Eve tidies her long black hair and lifts her feet away from and onto the side of the bed, she slips her feet into a pair of white slippers and gets out of the comfortable sheets.
With a sigh, she heads towards the glass wall with a few strides. Her eyes were drawn at the sight outside her glass wall, the sight of the large city building stretching to the sky, the millions of lights around glowing in the night, and vehicles moving around the roads creating a peaceful night scenery which you won't find in the morning.
She stares at the moving vehicles that looked minuscule from her sight on top of the building.
Her gaze then moves to the far left where the view of a large red bridge connecting from one land to another, standing above the sea, the waters reflecting the lights and looked like obsidian dancing around.
The ships at night looked like floating lights, slowly getting further and further. The sky was dark and no stars could be seen with such light pollution in this city.
Eve sat down on a sofa that was facing this scenery, she had been thinking about how this portrait-like scene would be missed the moment she completed her task. The moment her world progress reached 100%, the body she possessed will be disposed of because of the unchanging plot, and after that, her soul will leave the body and she had to move to the next world without rest.
This had become a cycle that repeats again and again.
She looks at the glass window and under the pale moonlight, she sees a slight reflection of her current appearance.
An appearance that isn't hers.
Eve Santana didn't exist in this world nor the previous worlds she had been sent to, she only possessed the bodies that were left by the original host. Just like Molina Sylvia, the current body she had possessed, a woman who was doomed to fall in love with a man who sees her as a pathetic woman and an eyesore.
Molina Sylvia was the daughter of a rich CEO of a trading company, who was prominent in their industry, while her mother was a world-renowned painter during her 30s.
Her father was Hubert Graham, one of the many business tycoons of the trading industry. With wealth and power, he had everything and nothing to fear.
Hubert Graham who is a well-respected figure in the business and trading industry doesn't lack anything, and that could be said with his current wife, who was a former mistress, and his ex-wife.
Unfortunately for Molina, Her father had been more affectionate with his recent wife more than his first wife, Mona Sylvia.
Molina's mother, Mona Sylvia, who was once a respectable artist had lost both her husband's love and her passion to create brilliant artworks the moment when her husband had committed multiple love affairs.
With the loss of love and attention, Mona Sylvia had used her daughter to regain at least their positions in the family, to let her, Molina, get close to her father and receive inheritance and support.
The story was still half done. Molina was this world's villainess and she will have a tragic ending, just like the rest of the characters Eve had possessed in the past worlds.
The sun hasn't yet risen when Molina was informed by the system's sudden notification.
[ World progress: 67%.
Accumulated points: 9998]
[ Today's Main Event:
Molina must completely lose her father's favor during the company party, make sure that Diana will gain the spotlight of the night by showing the difference between a sweet gentle princess Diana, and Molina who was full of greed and schemes.
Additional task: make sure Johnathan, Dave, and Ethan will see such scene in order to lower their favorability of Molina and help Diana to complete her favorability of each of them.
Acting out as crazy and cold at the party is a must, points will be given for every impeccable act of a villainess ]
Eve watched the system notification levitates in front of her before she dismissed it halfheartedly. It's always been the same concept. Over and over again, act like a Villainess and help the Female Lead in every world to succeed in having a relationship with every Male Leads and give her happiness.
Eve had hated being forced to act like a villain and even hated the fact she can't change the fates of every body she possessed. Before she tried so hard to reject the commands but it ends up leaving a painful memory for her, a punishment that gave her nothing but fear and pain.
So Eve had to bite her tongue and do what she was told to do.
Meanwhile, all these female leads that she helped in the dark, was the reason for both her and the original host's death. The so-called innocent and pitiful women who do no wrong in front of everyone gain their pity and support. They have nothing to do, whatever they say is correct and whatever they do is just.
While the Villain and Villainess had to prove themselves for things they were ignored and ridiculed of, the painful past that made them who they were at the present, and even had to explain the obvious of why their hearts had turned cold.
Sometimes, it's too late to ask why people becomes a Villain and Villainess.
Because people only see what they had seen and never want to know the other side of the story.
Eve realized she and the host bodies she possessed are just being used to be some kind of stepping stone, an object easily thrown to the side, becoming a loser who builds a bridge for two people while she falls down the river and drowns the moment it's done. The ones who are misunderstood are the bodies she possessed.
She wakes up from her daze and sees the world softly covered in twilight. The warm sunlight slowly pierces the night sky with colors.
Eve had sat there for another minute to appreciate the tranquility of the first light of the day before standing up and leaves the bedroom to wash herself up, starting her doomsday with warm water.
After she dressed up in Molina's clothes, she does her make-up, picks up a pair of heels that would go with her dark green dress, and leaves the large apartment with her purse.
When she entered the elevator which had a piece of relaxing music playing inside, Eve immediately pressed to the parking area which was found in the lower levels.
She pressed a button and the door closed automatically.
Her gaze then immediately set to the person in front of her, this body's appearance reflected in the mirrored wall was Molina.
Molina Sylvia, like all other female villainess, was a total beauty. A 25 years old who has work in her father's company and tried her best to show everyone she can also lead a small team and grab deals and new partnerships. She is smart yet her character, due to her family's current situation, lacks trust. A woman who easily loses her temper, a person who hand never receives affection.
Eve looks at the reflection and she sees her current appearance.
Ink-colored hair that falls on her back, a pair of light golden doe eyes, her skin smooth and glowing, face shape looked slightly sharp yet elegant. Her nose is small and slightly pointy on the tip. She had luscious plump lips that were thin when she doesn't smile.
Wearing a dark green dress, she looked paler than she was.
She was taller than some girls yet also smaller when it comes to other foreign women, 5'7" without heels and she had long thin legs. Molina was pretty but her character was stupid, she cannot control her expression, her mouth, and even her emotions.
That's why in this kind of world where women scheme against each other behind a mask, she is losing the game with her temper. She could see through others yet she doesn't know how to expose them, her character is truly pitiful.
Eve hears the sound of the door opening and left the elevator. As she steps out and to the parking area, she finds her parked car which was a white Porsche, and smoothly enters the driver's seat.
She heads to her family mansion first, the system guides her with a notification and a navigator on the screen.
The next first task of the day was---
[ Dave will be present in the mansion as he looks for Diana. Molina, who the male leads of this world despised, will bump into him. Molina, who still cannot accept the fact her childhood friend sided with her step-sister, finds fault in Diana in front of Dave and this will cause another decrease in favorability for Molina.
Points will be given when you act out: Embarrassed, Angry and Jealous ]
Eve had just passed a few green lights and drove into their family property, entering the long way towards a mansion. She then arrives in 30 minutes and sets her car in front of the entrance. Not caring where she leaves the car, she enters the building with large strides.
"Let's get this over with... " Eve says as the door opens and a butler coldly looks at her, not even greeting her when she walks in front of him.
Knowing Julius, a butler of the house for 30 years, doesn't respect Molina and doesn't acknowledge her as Graham's daughter, all Molina could do is roll her eyes.
Molina also doesn't like anyone in the mansion, even her mother but she can't deny only Mona was her ally.
"What a surprise to see you return here," Julius says when Molina climbs up the stairs. Molina frowns, everyone in the house never called her any titles unlike Diana, who was always called Young Miss Graham.
Molina was just called "you". She was treated poorly, even the dogs in this family were called out affectionately and feed properly.
What a joke, she thought with disgust.
Eve really wanted to ignore the old butler but Molina's character is always someone who grabs an opportunity to quarrel, especially if the other person starred to irritated the fuck off of her.
"Since you don't even respect me as "that" man's daughter, I'd rather have you ignore me and mind your business," she says and the volume of her voice would be enough to be heard by whoever was around the main building.
[ 1 point. A total of 9999 points accumulated
Please continue to persevere ]
Julius shakes his head as if he was disappointed with her lack of respect for him as an older person and the way of how showing his displeasure in her temper.
" Master Graham is busy at the moment, you should have made an appointment before coming here. The master's time is important and shouldn't be wasted by...trivial things "
