Chapter 32: Clubs

Gu Xia watched Tu Sisi enter the cabin, his mood was extremely complicated, and his heart felt a little heavy when he thought that she would be gone for several years.

Gu Xia secretly said to himself, ‘I have to make money quickly, or I won’t be able to go abroad to see her.’

“Gu Xia, let’s go!” Tu Jianguo sighed and patted his shoulder.

“Okay, uncle.” Gu Xia said with a smile.

Outside the airport, Tu Jianguo drove out of the parking lot with Tang Chunhua and three people in his car. Gu Xia didn’t get in his car because their destination was not the same way.

“Gu Xia, I’ll take you there! Otherwise, it will cost a lot of money to take a taxi back.” Tu Jianguo asked.

“No need, uncle, let’s go. If you want to send back Wang Qian and me, then you will basically have to circle the entire Jiangbei City. So I’ll take a taxi by myself, hurry up.” Gu Xia said while waving his hand.

“Alright then! Goodbye.” Tu Jianguo nodded.

Tang Chunhua and Tu Fangfang also nodded to Gu Xia.

“Gu Xia, let’s go, bye.” Wang Qian said with a wave of her hand.

“Goodbye.”

Gu Xia watched the car drive away and smiled. It was great that he got to see Tu Sisi today!

By the time Gu Xia took a taxi back to the dormitory, it was almost 10 o’clock. He didn’t eat dinner and felt a little hungry. Unfortunately, there was no takeaway at this time. If there was a takeaway, he could just order takeout.

‘Takeout? By the way, I can make a takeaway platform myself!’ Gu Xia thought excitedly.

However, he was immediately depressed because he had no money! 

‘I only have ideas but no technology and no money, how can I do it!’

“Hahh…”

Gu Xia sighed, he still needed money for everything he did in his previous life!

Gu Xia took a shower and went to the dormitory to ask his roommates, “I’m going out to eat, are you going?”

“Ah, I’ll go, I just wanted to go for a drink, these two guys are too lazy to move.” Liu Shu got up and agreed to go with him.

“Hehe, let’s go, let’s eat something and drink some wine.” Gu Xia smiled.

“Li Wen, why don’t we go too! You will have company~” Wang Qun asked Li Wen when he heard his words.

“I can’t go with you, I’m going to take a break. In the past few days, we had coding class every day, which almost blows my head off.” Li Wen waved his hand.

“Okay, then I’ll go.” Wang Qun also got up and put on his clothes.

“The third bro is pretty good at keeping up his appearances.” Liu Shu pointed at Wang Qun and pocked fun at him with a smile.

“Let’s go!” Gu Xia shook his head and said.

The three came to the night snack shop on the snack street in front of the university.

Gu Xia ordered some barbecue and a beer, and then the three found a place to sit down.

“This university life is not as colorful as people say. It’s no different from before. In addition to classes, I just eat and sleep all day.” Wang Qun complained.

“That’s because you don’t have a girlfriend, so what do you expect? If you had one, you’d be living well, like our fourth bro.” Liu Shu glanced at him and sneered.

“You seem to have said the same thing before.” Wang Qun also retorted.

“Okay, stop arguing, drink, drink!” Gu Xia opened the bear bottle and interrupted them.

“Come on, drink!” Liu Shu stopped and took a sip of wine.

“Hey… Gu Xia, Wang Qun, what are you going to do in the future!” Liu Shu asked.

“Me? I don’t know, anyway, I’m going to do what I have to do to earn money, but it’s better to have my own business. It’s too early to talk about this, we are only freshmen, and now we’ll have to learn a lot of things first.” Gu Xia took a sip of wine and said.

“I don’t know either. But, my parents want me to take the civil service exam. They want me to be like them, to have an iron job. What about you, big bro?” Wang Qun said with a wry smile.

“Me!? I will go back to my hometown to find a job, and I won’t ask for a high salary. As long as I can be closer to my home, so that I can take care of my parents.” Liu Shu took a sip of wine and continued,  “My family is in a rural town, my parents are both farmers. They have only me as their son at home. If I go to work far away after graduation, I would worry about them. After all, they are also getting old.”

“Let’s toast, so that we can realize our own dreams in the future, cheers!” Wang Qun said with a toast.

“Cheers!!”

*****

The three of them didn’t go back to the dormitory until one o’clock in the morning, and fell asleep when they got to the dormitory.

The next day was Saturday. Gu Xia had no class on Saturday, but had classes on Sunday, and it was the same for the other two.

The next day, when the three got up, Li Wen had already gone out, and there was breakfast on the table.

After Gu Xia had eaten breakfast, he heard some noise outside. He walked to the dormitory window and looked down. When he saw a group of people gathered around below, he couldn’t help asking. “What’s going on down there? Why is it so lively?”

“It seems that the clubs are looking for members! Li Wen said yesterday that he was going to apply for the club today. Let’s go down and see.” Wang Qun walked over and said.

“As for info on the clubs, I seem to have seen it in the university notice board. There are several clubs such as taekwondo clubs, calligraphy clubs, painting clubs, etc.” Liu Shu also gave extra information.

“Oh.” Gu Xia nodded, he didn’t go to the notice board, and he didn’t ask anyone, so he didn’t know this.

In fact, the university students today liked to browse the Tieba forum to learn about the latest news of the university. 

Only people like Gu Xia who didn’t go to the Tieba forum and Weibo in their previous life did not know this. He only played games on the computer and on his mobile phone.

“Let’s go then! Let’s take a look and join one if there is a suitable one.” Gu Xia said enthusiastically.

“Do you think a club is something you can join as you wish? They have requirements and the applicants need to be assessed.” Liu Shu glanced at him and said.

“There are still requirements and assessments?” Gu Xia deliberately acted surprised.

“Of course, each club has different requirements. The more popular the club, the higher their requirements. If there are no requirements, then everyone could enter, so wouldn’t that be no different than a vegetable market?” Liu Shu laughed.

“Okay, let’s go and have a look.” Wang Qun said while spraying hairspray on his head.

“You bastard, you keep spraying that every day, and make this room smell bad.” Liu Shu complained while looking at the stinky Wang Qun.

“Hehe~ You think I don’t know who used my hairspray two days ago?” Wang Qun glanced at him and mocked.

Gu Xia patted his forehead. He felt really helpless in front of these two guys. They really had to bicker every day.

“You guys continue to talk, I’ll go first.” Gu Xia left the dormitory door after speaking, he didn’t want to hear these two guys bickering anymore.

“Wait for me!!”

Wang Qun and Liu Shu shouted from behind.

Gu Xia walked to the leisure area of ​​the dormitory building. It was relatively empty. Many students put their quilts on the grass here to bask in the sun. Some people were already basking in the sun.

More than a dozen clubs had set up booths, each booth had tables in front of them, and each table had a person sitting behind it. The tables were full of people. 

Gu Xia looked at the introduction on the table which said that you needed to learn Go to join the group. Gu Xia shook his head. He had never learned Go, and he was not interested in this thing.

Gu Xia watched several clubs one after another, but he didn’t see the club he wanted to join, plus there were too many people, so he couldn’t read them all as carefully. So he lay down on the bench under the tree to rest.

After a while, Gu Xia fell asleep.
