Chapter 29: Torment

Tu Sisi’s face was haggard, her eyes were red and swollen, and she stared blankly at the floor.

“Since you like him so much, then why are you lying to him? What’s the use of torturing yourself like this!” Tu Fangfang sighed.

It turned out that when Gu Xia came to their house a few days ago, Tu Sisi’s family took her to another province by plane to seek treatment.

“Sister, don’t talk about it anymore, how can I be with him like this? You can see as well, I’m not living like a human being, I am a ghost, and I often get sick. I hate my current self.” Tu Sisi said with sad eyes.

“Hahh! How could such a good person get this kind of disease, what an injustice!” Tu Fangfang couldn’t help crying.

“Maybe this is life!” Tu Sisi silently cried.

“Okay, Sisi, Dad has contacted his friends from the military in abroad. After a few days, we will send you overseas for treatment. You will definitely get better.” Tu Fangfang comforted her sister.

“I don’t want to go, the treatment will cost 500,000! Sister, where can our family find so much money! And it’s not entirely sure that I will be cured.” Tu Sisi hugged her sister and cried even more sadly.

“Okay, you don’t have to worry about these things. Dad said it’s ok, so it’s ok. Don’t you believe Dad? When did Dad ever lie to us?” Tu Fangfang comforted her again.

“Aaahh”

Tu Sisi burst into tears.

*****

After class, Gu Xia was lying on the table to get some sleep. He didn’t know where to go if he went out, so he might as well sleep for a while.

“Bang Bang!”

Someone slapped Gu Xia’s table. Gu Xia looked up and saw a young man with a haircut like Hao Nan, with pierced ears and a leather jacket, was slapping his table. Behind him were two more people.

Gu Xia remembered that this guy was from his class, but he couldn’t remember his name at the moment.

Gu Xia glanced at him and said, “Is there something wrong?”

“You’re Gu Xia, right? Let’s change seats, you got no problem with that, right?” The man in the leather jacket said arrogantly.

Gu Xia glanced at Xu Mengying, who was sitting with lowered head, and secretly said, ‘Beautiful women are all sources of troubles!’

Gu Xia said to the man in the leather jacket,”Why should I change seats with you? If you want to change positions you should go and ask the teacher to tell me. If the teacher tells me to change seats, I’ll do that. So who are you to tell me? Are you someone from outside the university? Can a gangster enter the university too? If you don’t leave, I’ll call the security.”

Hearing Gu Xia’s bluffing and intimidation, the man in the leather jacket looked left and right, and then said angrily, “Who? Who are you calling a gangster from outside, this is called fashion, fashion, do you understand? And I’m a student in this class, so what if you call the security guard? I’m not causing any trouble.”

“Oh~ it turns out that you are a student in our class! I really didn’t know. As for the fashion you are talking about, I’m sorry, I can’t understand it.” Gu Xia spread his hands and said.

“Ha ha ha!”

Everyone else in the class burst into laughter.

“You~” The man in the leather jacket was speechless for a moment, and pointed at Gu Xia with trembling fingers.

“Boy, you are so arrogant, you don’t even know our Brother Long?” said a short man behind the man in the leather jacket.

“I’m still not as arrogant as you. Do you know why? You want to show your prestige in the university, and you didn’t even bother to look at what’s next to the university! Do you know why Jiangbei University’s public security environment ranks high in the country? Because next to the university gate is the Public Security Bureau.” Gu Xia said sharply.

“If you want to change seats, then go to the teacher. You can either ask the teacher to tell me, or you can ask Xu Mengying to sit next to you. Don’t think that I don’t know your thoughts. If you want to chase Xu Mengying, you can rely on yourself. Don’t provoke me.” Gu Xia stood up after speaking.

The leader, Long Ge and the others were frightened and took two steps back, thinking that he really was going to do something.

Gu Xia sneered, ‘You young children want to mess with me? When I worked in my previous life, what kind of people have I not seen? I have a stream of knowledge about such people, including government officials, ordinary office workers, and people from various levels of society.’

Even if he started a fight, Gu Xia was not afraid of them even though he was alone. There were many people who fought. Of course, not all fights were the same. Fighting depended on ruthlessness. If you are more ruthless than your opponent, he will be afraid of you. And Gu Xia had already died once, so what was he afraid of?

Gu Xia walked out of the classroom on his own, went to the toilet, and returned to the classroom, only to see that the man in the leather jacket, Long Ge, was sitting in his seat, talking to Xu Mengying with a smile on his face. Gu Xia walked over to take a picture, then he patted him on the shoulder and said, “Go to the other side and don’t disturb my sleep.”

Seeing this, Brother Long, the man in the leather jacket, did not get angry, he got up and walked to the other side of Xu Mengying.

“Then, Mengying, why don’t we go to dinner tonight? I know there is a good steak house nearby. I’ll take you to eat, okay?” Brother Long smiled at Xu Mengying.

“No.”

Xu Mengying, who was reading a book, rejected his offer.

“How about going to sing?”

“No.”

“…”

No matter what he said, Xu Mengying didn’t say anything more than “No”, and the poor guy didn’t say a word again.

Gu Xia lied on the desk and secretly laughed, ‘Singing and eating steak? She has Chanel sprayed on her body, have you ever heard of that thing?’

It was obvious that she was not interested in him, and the guy still continued to insist, which was really thick-skinned.

There were two classes in the morning, and the second class was about to start. Gu Xia took out the textbook to read it. Gu Xia already knew a lot of the contents from this textbook, but he still needed to read it to freshen his memory.

“Ding Ding!”

The class bell rang, and Brother Long reluctantly returned to his seat.

Gu Xia glanced at him, but didn’t say anything cruel to this kid. After all, this was real life. It was not like those revenge plots in the novel. Everyone goes to the university to study, even if they are a little ruffian, they don’t just run around beating people.

“It’s annoying!”

Xu Mengying next to him muttered.

Gu Xia smiled and said, “Beauty is the original sin!”

Xu Mengying glared at him when she heard the words. She wanted to say something, but when she saw the teacher come in, she didn’t say anything.

*****

In a blink of an eye, a day had passed. On this day, Gu Xia went to the cafeteria for lunch, and spent the rest of the time in the classroom, except for reading and sleeping.

In the evening, Gu Xia was thinking of going home. Today was his dad’s birthday. Although the family didn’t say it, Gu Xia still remembered it.

Gu Xia went to the mall and bought a belt for his dad. His dad had been using the same belt for almost ten years, and the leather was almost rotten.

He stopped a taxi to go home.

Gu Xia didn’t know that not far behind, there were two girls looking at him. These two girls were Tu Sisi and Tu Fangfang.

One day, Tu Sisi suddenly said that she wanted to see Gu Xia for the last time. After all, she was about to go abroad and wanted to have a look at him. 

Tu Fangfang agreed and waited with her at the gate for a long time before they saw Gu Xia. But Tu Sisi was just watching from a distance. Even when he went to the mall, she just watched from afar.

Seeing her sister burst into tears again, Tu Fangfang couldn’t help but sigh and said, “What foolishness! It’s better not to look at him!”

After they finished, she took her sister to take a taxi home.
