Chapter 36: Opportunity

“Du du du”

Gu Xia smiled when he heard the beeping sound of hanging up from the phone.

Today was really a good day!

“I love you, I love you, I love you…”

“Oh, I got goosebumps all over my body…”

Gu Xia looked back in shock, only to see Wang Qun and Liu Shu looking at him with lewd smiles.

Gu Xia shook his head with a wry smile, these guys had heard everything he just said.

“Third bro, be lenient when confessing, and be strict when resisting. Tell me, where is the girl you hooked up with?” Wang Qun said with a smile, rubbing his hands together.

His expression seemed like a customer who just did the deed with a pro*titute, and was putting on his pants with satisfaction.

“What is this thing about hooking up? What we have is true love! Do you understand? It’s true love!” Gu Xia stood up with a smile and said righteously.

“Cheh! True love, who didn’t say it was true love when chasing a girl?” Wang Qun pouted.

“Third bro, ask your girlfriend to introduce one of her friends to me. If it goes well, I’ll treat you to a meal for a week, no, a month, how about it?” Liu Shu said with some distress, but when he thought about the girl, those meals and the cost seemed to be worth it.

“I say… Big bro, can you be a little bit more dignified, and why do you need Third bro’s girlfriend to introduce you to a girl? Go get one yourself!” Wang Qun sneered.

“Haha…” Liu Shu sneered.

“Why didn’t I see you get one? Every day you talk about getting this and that, but none of them pays any attention to you.” Liu Shu continued his attack.

“You…it’s because they have eyes, but are unable to see gold inlaid jade.” Wang Qun defended with a flushed face.

“Haha…” Liu Shu didn’t refute, he also just sneered.

Gu Xia looked at these two living treasures, who would attack each other every time within three minutes they met .

“Okay, stop arguing, my girlfriend is not in the country, so I can’t help you.”

Gu Xia spread his hands and said that he couldn’t help. Tu Sisi was really not here, so she couldn’t introduce anyone. Besides, the only one of Sisi’s friends he knew was Wang Qian, and Wang Qian and Li Sicheng were going strong right now. He was not that familiar with the others, and he had only met them once in his previous life.

“Heh. Look at you being happy…” Wang Qun pouted.

“Hehe, if you really want to fall in love, you can’t just go casting nets everywhere. If you like one, just go pursue her. If you pursue her with your heart, you will always have a chance to get the girl you like.” Gu Xia said to Wang Qun.

“Hey! That’s what I thought too, but it’s so hard to pursue them!” Wang Qun sighed.

“Why don’t you stop worrying about getting a girlfriend. Why are you sighing? Maybe you just don’t have fate, and maybe you’ll get there one day.” Gu Xia comforted him .

“Yes, I don’t want to think about it anymore, let’s go and have a drink.” Liu Shu nodded and said.

When Gu Xia heard the word “drink”, his legs softened, he had just sobered up after drinking, and his mouth was still full of the smell of wine.

He hurriedly waved his hands and said, “You guys go, I’m not going, I drank too much at noon, and she’s still a little angry at me now.”

“Okay, let’s go, let us poor brothers who don’t have girlfriends go have a drink.”

Wang Qun hooked Liu Shu’s shoulder and said with lament.

Gu Xia looked at the two people who walked out shoulder to shoulder, and became speechless for a moment. Just now, they were bickering as if they were about to fight, and now they were going to drink like brothers. These two guys were really…

Gu Xia took a shower, and then went out to go to his adoptive grandfather’s place. The old man lived alone, and it was unknown if he was sober or not.

In the teacher’s quarter, Xu Tianxiang’s house, Gu Xia knocked on the door.


Xu Tianxiang opened the door, he still seemed a little sleepy, maybe he just woke up.

“Grandpa, you haven’t eaten yet! You go sit down, I’ll cook a bowl of noodles for you to eat. It just so happened that I didn’t eat either. Us grandfather and grandson should eat together.”

As soon as he said it, Gu Xia washed the pots and bowls from noon in the kitchen, and then took out a tomato and two eggs from the refrigerator. He was going to cook the tomato egg noodles.

Xu Tianxiang looked at Gu Xia who was getting busy in the kitchen,

He felt the comfort of being with a kin. 

Ten minutes later.

Gu Xia came out with two bowls of hot noodles.

“Come, eat while it’s hot, grandpa.” Gu Xia handed Xu Tianxiang the chopsticks.

“Well! It’s very fragrant! I just woke up and after eating this food, my stomach feels much better.”

“You can eat more if you think it’s delicious, there’s still more in the pot.” Gu Xia smiled.

After eating, Gu Xia cleaned up the tableware.

“Come here, Gu Xia, sit down and let’s have a talk.” Xu Tianxiang pointed at the sofa and said.

“Gu Xia. What do you plan to do in the future?”

Gu Xia thought about it for a moment and said, “I plan to start a business.”

“Oh! Starting a business? Why do you have such an idea? Have you ever thought about taking the civil service exam and entering the system? If you have such plans, this old man still has some face, so I can help you.” Xu Tianxiang pondered.

“The system is not suitable for me as a person! I am rather dull, and I don’t like that kind of complex life. I would like to do something I like and earn more money to live a better life.” Gu Xia touched his nose, and said with a wry smile.

Of course, he knew what his adoptive grandpa meant. He wanted him to enter the bureaucratic system. He was an old revolutionary and naturally knew many people in the political world, but Gu Xia really didn’t like that kind of work that was full of restraints and intrigue.

And Tu Sisi definitely wouldn’t like it if he entered the bureaucratic system.

Gu Xia liked jobs where he could be free. Where he could earn money, he could do his own business, and care about no one. When he earned enough money, he planned to travel everywhere with his parents and Sisi.

“That’s good! Everyone has their own aspirations, and doing business is a good choice. But do you have any ideas for the future? Are you planning to join a company or start from the grassroots level?” Xu Tianxiang nodded and then enquired.

“I have an idea, but I am still lacking something.” Gu Xia smiled bitterly.

“What’s wrong? Let me hear it.”

“It’s money…”

Gu Xia said, embarrassed.

Xu Tianxiang couldn’t help but be stunned when he heard the words, it turned out that this guy was lacking money! That’s right, looking at Gu Xia’s clothes, it was quite obvious that he came from an average family.

“Let’s do it like this. My grandchildren will come over in two days. My grandson is doing some business in the capital, and it seems to be quite big. When the time comes, I will ask you to come over. You can talk to him. If possible, I will ask him to invest money in your plan, and you can boldly go forward.” Xu Tianxiang said after thinking for a while.

“Thank you grandpa.”

Gu Xia did not act modest, and he really needed a springboard to realize his ideas.

Moreover, although Grandpa Xu said that he would talk to his grandson, but he was actually helping him. His words would definitely play a big role at that time. Otherwise, why would he ask him to come over when his grandchildren came to visit him?

“You don’t have to say thank you, since you called me grandpa, this grandpa naturally wants to help you. There’s nothing I can do if you can’t help yourself. You are the one who will be doing the talking when the time comes, and I will just play a small role. If you can’t make him interested, then I will have no say in this either.” Xu Tianxiang waved his hand.

“Don’t worry, Grandpa, I will definitely live up to your expectations.” Gu Xia solemnly assured him.

“Good… well, it’s not too early, go back to sleep!”

“Okay, goodbye grandpa!”

Gu Xia returned to the dormitory and thought about which idea to pitch?

Should he choose takeaway service?

Or vehicles for hire? (G: like ub*er)

Both of these industries were very successful in his past life!
