Chapter 13: Roommates

After Gu Xia finished his lunch, he dragged his suitcase and walked to the boys’ dormitory. His dormitory number was 333, which was on the third floor of the boys’ dormitory. Gu Xia walked to the door of the 333 dormitory, opened the door and walked in, only to see a young man inside. 

The youngster was making his bed, after seeing Gu Xia walk in, he smiled and said, “Hello, I’m Wang Qun from the Foreign Language Department. Wang of ‘King’, and Qun of ‘Leader (Shepherd)’. I come from Sichuan province.”

“Hello, I’m Gu Xia from the Department of Economics and Management. Gu of ‘Ancient’, and Xia of ‘Summer’. I’m a local.” Gu Xia also nodded in response.

The young man in front of him had a dark complexion and was thin. He was wearing a pair of gold-rimmed eyes, a floral shirt and floral breeches, and two flip-flops on his feet, looking quite laid back.

“There are still two people who haven’t arrived yet, so find a bed for yourself first!” Wang Qun said.


Gu Xia put things on top of the other bottom bunk, spread the mat, and hung up the clothes.


“I’m exhausted!”

The door was pushed open, and a tall and strong young man walked in with two backpacks and two suitcases.

As soon as he walked in, he said, “Is there someone here already? Hello, I am Liu Shu. Liu of ‘Willow Tree’, and Shu of ‘Arithmetic’. I am from the Department of Economics and Management.”

Gu Xia and Wang Qun introduced themselves to each other again.

“Huh… Jiangbei is too hot, I can’t stand the heat!” Liu Shu complained.

“Hehe, you are from the north, and you must not be used to the weather here. Jiangbei City is famous for its hot weather in the country. It’s quite okay now, but when autumn comes, it will be even hotter.” Gu Xia smiled.

“That’s terrible!” Liu Shu sighed.

“Do you smoke?” Liu Shu took out a packet of Liqun and handed it to Gu Xia and Wang Qun. (Goblin: Remember Liqun is a Chinese cigarette brand.)

Both of them shook their heads, indicating that they don’t smoke.

Although Gu Xia smoked in his previous life, he was not addicted to smoking. He only smoked because he had to accompany his clients. Now that there was no need for that, Gu Xia would naturally not smoke.

The three of them talked for a while, and the fourth roommate also arrived. He was a handsome young man. He came in and said with a smile, “Hello, my name is Li Wen, I’m from the Department of Computer Science, and I’m from Beijing.”

“You came here from Beijing to study at this university? There are many good universities in Beijing, right? Plus if you are a local, the score line would have been lower.” Wang Qun pushed his golden eyes and said.

“I had no choice, my girlfriend came to this university, so I had to come.” Li Wen shrugged his shoulders and smiled wryly.



Wang Qun and Li Wen cursed out loud.

Even Gu Xia looked at Li Wen with admiration. He didn’t expect this guy to come here to study from a bustling metropolis like Beijing just for his girlfriend. What if they broke up someday? And he could also convince his parents, which was amazing as well.

“You are throwing around dog food as soon as you come in, is this really okay? You are making us, who have been single for almost 20 years, feel bad for not being in any relationship. We are still considering whether to fall in love in the university. And here you are happily coming to the university with your girlfriend. Alas~ even dead people are more popular than us!” Wang Qun said in an exaggerated manner.

“Hmm~” Liu Shu nodded in agreement.

“By the way, do you know what day the military training will take place?” Gu Xia changed the subject, fearing that they would keep arguing like this for the rest of the day.

“The day after tomorrow! Don’t you know? It was on the notice board at the gate of Jiangbei University.” Li Wen asked strangely.

“I really didn’t pay attention to this, I was in a hurry to reach the department office.” Gu Xia touched his nose and said.

“I didn’t notice either. I was busy looking at beautiful women at the time. Did you see them? My god, there are so many beautiful women in the Foreign Language Department! And the quality is quite high. It seems that coming to Jiangbei University was not a mistake.” Wang Qun, that wretched fellow said with a smile.

“Haha~ I also heard that there are many beauties at Jiangbei University.” Liu Shu also laughed.

“I just don’t know how long the military training is? I hope it won’t be too long. It’s too hot today, and we will turn into black charcoal if we stay under the sun for a long time.” Wang Qun complained.

“Jiangbei military training lasts for a month. I already asked the seniors, the military training will be over by the National Day holiday.” said Li Wen, who was making the bed.

“Is the military training time fixed? Is there any difference?” Gu Xia asked suspiciously.

He really didn’t know, no one ever told him as he never went to university in his previous life.

“Well… some take ten days, some are twenty days, most take a month, so the time of military training is different, some are before the start of the university, and some are after the university.” Li Wen seemed to know a lot about the university, and said without hesitation.

“Oh, so that’s it.” Gu Xia was suddenly enlightened.

“Haha~ These things can be found online.” Li Wen laughed.

“Why don’t we rank ourselves from the eldest to the youngest according to age like on TV?” Wang Qun suggested.

“It goes without saying that I must be the eldest. I was born in January 1989.” Liu Shu said excitedly.

“Uh.. I can’t compare.” Gu Xia waved his hand and said. ‘I am only 90 years old this year, and I still have many years to go. How can I compare? I really can’t compare!’

Li Wen and Wang Qun also nodded in recognition of Liu Shu’s position as the boss.

“Who is the second bro?” Wang Qun looked at Gu Xia and then at Li Wen.

“I was born in March of 1990, you two should be older than me, right?” Wang Qun asked anxiously, he didn’t want to be the second bro.

Gu Xia shook his head to indicate that he was not as old as him, and then looked at Li Wen.

Wang Qun also looked at Li Wen, only to see Li Wen being expressionless and not speaking, as if he was the second bro.

“Wow haha~ I’m not the second bro, hehe~” Wang Qun jumped up excitedly, smiling from ear to ear.

“Although I don’t want to admit it, I still have to tell you that you are the second child. I should be the youngest. I was born on the first day of the first lunar month in 1991, so I’ll have to disappoint you, dear second bro.” Li Wen suddenly laughed.

Gu Xia was stunned for a while, he didn’t expect that Li Wen, who looked so gentle, was so black hearted! As he remained silent just now, everyone thought that the second bro was him, who would have known that there would be such a big reversal.

It was really excellent acting!

“Hahaha~” Liu Shu slapped his thigh, and laughed wildly.

“Okay, Li Wen, you tricked me.” Wang Qun pointed at Li Wen and said with a sad face.

“Forget it, if I am the second bro, then so be it! I won’t be angry, but the fourth bro, you have to make up for my mental loss, and you have to invite the three of us to have a good meal at night.” Wang Qun just had a sad look on his face, but now he demanded that Li Wen would have to treat them with a smile.

They were all talents!

“How can I let the fourth bro treat guests? Even if we want to, I’ll be the one doing it. I am the boss.” Liu Shu was the first to object.

Gu Xia heard his words and said, “Don’t treat us as guests, everyone’s the same, everyone is a student.”

“I treat you, isn’t it just a meal?” Li Wen smiled.

“That’s right, you are very rich, the trolley case is from Hermès, the clothes you wear are Versace, and there is Adidas on your feet. This outfit alone is worth tens of thousands of dollars. If you don’t make him pay, then who will pay?” Wang Qun said the price of the things Li Wen had on his body.

Gu Xia was shocked when he heard his words. He only knew about Adidas, and he had never seen the others. This guy was indeed a native of Beijing! So rich!

“Okay! Fourth bro, you have money and you are a good guy. I agree to let you treat us this time, and it will be my turn next time.” Liu Shu looked at Li Wen and said.

“It’s nothing difficult, it’s the work of fate that we met, and it’s just that my parents made some money.” Li Wen said indifferently.

“Okay, let’s go to dinner at seven o’clock in the evening. Now it’s only three o’clock, why not go play some games?” Wang Qun suggested.



Li Wen and Liu Shu both agreed, Gu Xia didn’t want to go, but everyone was going, so it would look bad if he didn’t go, so he agreed.

The four of them happily walked towards the university gate.
