Chapter 27: She’s gone?

On the way back, Gu Xia sat alone in the back row, leaning there with his eyes closed.

Wang Qian and Li Sicheng didn’t speak either. The atmosphere in the car was very quiet, except for the whistling of the wind outside the window.

“Gu Xia, don’t be angry, maybe the phone is not with Sisi?” Wang Qian turned her head and comforted.

“I’m not angry, I’m just feeling a little tired due to these last two days.” Gu Xia said with his eyes closed.

Seeing this, Wang Qian sighed and did not continue to speak. The car drove all the way until they finally returned to Jiangbei City the next day.

On Xinghua Road, after Gu Xia said goodbye to the two of them, he walked home, carrying the local specialties that Li Sicheng bought near Mount Tai. He bought a lot, so he gave some to Gu Xia.

Gu Xia looked at the time. Today was October 5th. There were still two days before the end of the holiday. These five days have been really hard on him.

Gu Xia opened the door, and found that there was no one at home. His parents had gone to work. The two of them never had a fixed rest time. The only time they rested was when they had nothing to do. His sister also went out to play outside.

Gu Xia lay on the bed, and his body relaxed for the first time in a while. Only when he was at home was the time when he would be the most calm and relaxed. After all, your home is always your own harbor and your own support!

Gu Xia stayed at home for the next two days. He called Tu Sisi several times during this period, with the same result, which showed that it was turned off.

Today on the 7th, at night, Gu Xia planned to visit Tu Sisi’s house.

“Brother, are you leaving again?” Gu Qin asked while eating.

“Yeah, the class will officially start tomorrow.” Gu Xia patted Gu Qin’s head and smiled.

“Hehh, Gu Xia, tell the truth, did you get a girlfriend? You’ve been in a bad mood these past two days, it’s like you’ve lost your love.” Gu Qin asked with curiosity in her eyes.

Gu Xia touched his nose awkwardly, not knowing whether to laugh or cry. This girl was chasing him around every day and asked this question repeatedly, it was really a headache!

“No, no, you stupid girl, focus more on your studies, don’t care about these things all day long, and children should not meddle with adults’ affairs.” Gu Xia said helplessly.

“Hmph! You? You’re an adult? Hehe~ You are hardly a year older than me and you call me a child. Is it the courage that the university gave you?” Gu Qin rolled his eyes and mocked.

Gu Xia’s teeth felt itchy, and under Gu Qin’s dissatisfied eyes, he pinched her baby-fat face, and went to take a bath without looking back.

“Hmph~ You’re feeling guilty after being caught…”

When Gu Xia heard the voice behind him, he couldn’t help but touch his nose and smile bitterly.

Gu Xia went out after taking a shower. His classes would start the day after, he would have to go back to the university tonight. So he wanted to go to Tu Sisi’s house tonight.

Because it was still early, Gu Xia did not take a taxi or take a bus, but rode a bicycle.

The sky was a little dark, and the streets were crowded with people. Some were shopping, some were just getting off work, so the crowd was surging.

Gu Xia rode a bicycle through the crowd. He looked at many people who just got off work and were waiting for the bus, then remembered the time when he just began doing sales in his previous life. He also squeezed into the bus every day like them, rushing around every day to earn a living. And then he bought a car and didn’t need to do this anymore. 

The wind was blowing and the sun was setting, and he had to endure the crowds of the city every day. Thinking about it again, his life was really not easy!

It took Gu Xia more than two hours to reach Tu Sisi’s house. Just when Gu Xia was about to lose the feeling in his calf, he finally arrived.

Gu Xia parked his bicycle, then got on the elevator. When he arrived at the door of Tu Sisi’s house, Gu Xia tidied his clothes and hair, took a deep breath, and knocked on her door.

“Knock! Knock!”

No one opened the door. Gu Xia frowned and continued to knock on the door, but no one opened the door.

Gu Xia was suddenly in a bad mood, so he could only comfort himself in his heart, and say that they went out.

“Creeck…”

“Young man, don’t knock, no one is at home, they are out.”

It turned out to be an aunt who opened the door and spoke to him.

“Auntie, do you know where they went?” Gu Xia asked.

“I heard that they were sending someone to the airport, but I didn’t hear it too clearly.” Auntie thought for a while and said.

“What!? How long have they been at the airport?” Gu Xia’s expression changed and he asked hurriedly.

“It’s been more than half an hour! Why, boy, are you in a hurry to find them? Give them a call if you are in a hurry! Ah…ah! He just left? The young people these days! He just ran down the stairs.” The aunt looked at Gu Xia’s figure and complained.

Gu Xia was feeling very anxious. Did the thing he was most afraid of finally happened? Is Sisi seriously ill? Did she need to go abroad for treatment?

‘But why don’t you talk to me?’

Gu Xia frantically ran out of the community, and kept looking around on the road, but he didn’t see a taxi for a long time. Where was the taxi when you needed them?

Finally, Gu Xia saw a taxi and hurriedly waved to stop it.

“Driver, to the airport, please hurry up, thank you!” Gu Xia said.

“Okay!”

*****

Jiangbei Airport was located on the edge of Jiangbei City. It took nearly an hour to pass from the city even if there was no traffic jam. When Gu Xia arrived at the airport, more than an hour had passed. 

Gu Xia hurriedly got out of the taxi and went to the airport to ask the staff when the last flight was. He learned that the last flight for tonight took off more than ten minutes ago, and he would have to wait until tomorrow morning for the next one.

When Gu Xia heard the words, it was as if all strength just left his body. He was still too late!

The foreign land was so far from home, and he didn’t know where she was. Even if he knew where she was, did he have money to go see her like he had in the past?

Standing in the desolate area outside the airport, Gu Xia couldn’t help but feel sad. He looked up to the sky and laughed, tears streaming down from the corners of his eyes.

“Ha ha ha ha!”

“God, why are you torturing me so much ever since I have been reborn?”

“Haaahh!”

*****

At night, there was a light rain. Gu Xia took a taxi and got off at the entrance of the university. There was a stereo at the entrance of the barber shop at the entrance of the university, and the hottest songs were playing in it.

“I wasn’t good enough for you before

I’m felt so sad

I just blame myself

Why I didn’t hold your hand

When I lost you

I realized how important you are

It’s no use saying sorry now

Although my heart hurts

I only blame myself

Why I didn’t say I love you

So I want to say now

I love you!

After losing you

I can’t even breathe.”

Gu Xia liked this song a lot when he was young in his previous life, but now, Gu Xia hated this song very much.

Because listening to it made him cry!

Gu Xia looked at the time. It was already 11 o’clock in the evening. When he returned to the dormitory, his three roommates were already asleep. After Gu Xia washed up, he just lay on the bed, as he was still a little dazed. He suddenly felt that he didn’t know what to do in the future.

There was no Sisi!

There was no Cheng Cheng!

There was nothing left!

“Hahh!”

“Ting!”

Gu Xia took out his mobile phone, and saw that it was a message from his father, 

[Xia Xia, have you reached the university yet? Your mother said your clothes were old, so I gave you 1,000 yuan in your card. You should buy some new clothes, alright? I wanted to call you, but I’ll send you a message since it’s gotten late.]

Gu Xia’s nose turned sour, and tears flowed out. Yes! I have my parents and my sister!

“I know, Dad. You and Mom should also take care of yourself, and tell Qinqin that I will bring her something delicious next time.” Gu Xia replied.

“Hmm…” Dad returned the message.

Gu Xia took a deep breath and secretly said to himself, “Cheer up, Gu Xia!”
