Chapter 37: Illness

Gu Xia leaned on the bed, thinking about the sudden rise of the giant companies in his previous life.

Fortunately, Liu Shu and the other two went to drink and hadn’t come back. Li Wen went to accompany his girlfriend as usual and would probably come back late.

Wang Qun complained every day that Li Wen was very likely going to die on a woman’s belly.

No one was arguing here, and Gu Xia could think clearly in peace, but he couldn’t think of anything more profitable. After all, as a salesman in his previous life, he only knew some things that everyone else knew.

Feeling distressed, Gu Xia thought, “Forget it, let’s go with the two projects of takeaway and vehicles for hire! The others are really unpredictable.”

Gu Xia took out a pen and paper, and started writing down what he knew about takeaway and vehicles for hire into two plans in a notebook.

But for Gu Xia, what he was most afraid of was writing this kind of report.

In his past life, he often had to write a month-end summary report for his company at the end of each month, Gu Xia always felt very distressed about that. His writing was average and he couldn’t always write what he wanted to express. (Author’s PS: Just like me, my writing is not good, and I can’t always express my meaning.)

‘Hey! I can ask Sisi to write this for me!’

Tu Sisi studied journalism in university, and her writing was top-notch. In his previous life, Gu Xia often asked Tu Sisi to help him write reports.

Gu Xia dialed Tu Sisi’s number.

“Hey, Sisi, get up! There’s a computer in your room! Can you help me type information about food delivery and vehicles for hire from our previous life on the computer, and then send a copy of it to my QQ mailbox?” Gu Xia said in a hurry.

[Why do you need that?] Tu Sisi asked lazily just after taking a shower.

“Well…it’s like this…”

Gu Xia told Tu Sisi about his talk with Grandpa Xu.

[Oh, that’s what it is! Good, I’ll write it for you later, you have to thank your grandfather well, you understand?]

“I know, I know.”

“Alright, just wait a minute, I’ll write it down and send it to you.” After Tu Sisi finished speaking, she hung up the phone, then turned on the computer in the room. She thought about takeaways and vehicles for hire, and kept typing on the keyboard.

She suddenly laughed as she remembered that in her previous life Gu Xia often begged hers to write a summary report for him at the end of the month. At that time, he always rushed to bring back Chengcheng and asked her to write it for him.



‘What about my Chengcheng?’

Tu Sisi’s body trembled while sitting in front of the computer, then she got up and shouted, “Chengcheng…Chengcheng…”

She rummaged around in the room like crazy, whether it was the toilet, the wardrobe, or even under the bed, but she still didn’t see her son. So Tu Sisi dialed Gu Xia’s number and asked, [Gu Xia, did you take Chengcheng out to play?]

Gu Xia, who was wondering when Tu Sisi called himself again, sat up from the bed in a hurry.

‘Sisi’s illness is acting up again?’

Gu Xia calmed down, he couldn’t be in a hurry, he must not panic! He wasn’t beside Sisi, so he had to comfort her and stabilize her.

“Sisi, I brought Chengcheng to my parents’ house. They said they hadn’t seen Chengcheng for a long time, so I brought Chengcheng here.” Gu Xia said softly.

[Oh, then remember to bring him back later, and you are not allowed to drink and drive, you understand? Be sure to take good care of Chengcheng.]

“Hmm… don’t worry, it’s very late, you should go to sleep. When you wake up, I’ll bring our little darling back to you.” Gu Xia comforted her softly.

Gu Xia remembered the events when he was in Mount Tai, the doctor said that she could not be too emotional, so now he could only coax her to stabilize her first, and calm her down. It was best for her to sleep.

The reason for her illness was that she missed their son too much. It was fine when she didn’t think about him, but if she thought too deeply, she would get sick.

‘It’s a pity I’m not by her side, she’s too far away.’

[Oh~ but I can’t sleep.] Tu Sisi frowned.

“I sing a song for you. Don’t you like to hear me sing the most when you can’t sleep? You fall asleep as soon as I sing. “Gu Xia laughed softly.

[Good…then you can sing a song for me! When I wake up, you have to bring Chengcheng to see me.]


“Your mood is always rushing

To chase after everything…”

Gu Xia sang Tu Sisi’s favorite song. He still remembered that after she gave birth to their son, she was a little depressed and couldn’t sleep all night. At that time, he sang this song to her everyday. And, every time she would fall asleep like a child.

Holding the phone, Tu Sisi listened to the familiar voice and a familiar song. Her expression softened, a smile appeared on her face, and then she calmly fell asleep.

“Who do you think of when you’re alone

Do you want to find someone to accompany you?…”

Gu Xia sang over and over again, and tears streamed down his cheeks as he sang.

He felt sad! Why did God give her this disease!

Hearing the faint snore coming from the phone, Gu Xia knew that she had fallen asleep, so he hung up the phone with a smile on his face.

She was still the same as before.

She still falls asleep listening to his singing.

Gu Xia picked up the pen and paper again, and started to write. Sisi fell asleep, so he had to write the report himself!

Gu Xia scribbled on the notebook. He wrote the plan as detailed and clear as possible.

“Gu Xia, you are the only one here!” Li Wen walked in with his laptop and said.

“Heh… you bought a computer?” Gu Xia saw him holding the computer, and asked.

“Yup! There was no other way, the programming and data taught by the teacher was too difficult. Sometimes I can’t understand it, so I can only buy a computer and let Yiyi teach me. She is better than me at learning this stuff, so I can only come back to the dormitory very late every day during this period.” Li Wen laughed.

Gu Xia knew that Yiyi was the name of Li Wen’s girlfriend and she was also a Computer Science student. The last time he had met her outside of university, she was not that tall and looked very innocent and cute.

“Ha ha…”

Gu Xia smiled, then put the notebook away, and got ready to sleep.

“Hey~ By the way, Gu Xia. Yiyi said that we should introduce you to a girl and so we have to meet them at the playground after class tomorrow.” Li Wen suddenly said.

“I’ve seen that girl, she’s pretty good, and she’s very beautiful. She also watched the video of you singing during the military training party and was a little interested in you, so she agreed to meet you.”

Gu Xia smiled bitterly when he heard his words. He already had Tu Sisi, so why would he meet another girl?

So he waved his hand and said, “I don’t want to fall in love for the time being, so I won’t go. You help me tell Yiyi and say I thank her for her kindness, but I don’t want to fall in love yet.”

“How can that be? Yiyi has told the people in her dormitory that you will definitely go. If you don’t go, won’t she lose face!”

“Yiyi also invited the other two roommates in her dormitory, and asked me to call Liu Shu and Wang Qun to see if they could hit it off. So whether it is for Yiyi’s face or the happiness of Liu Shu and Wang Qun, you must go. “

Gu Xia smiled bitterly again, it was what it was, and it’d be bad if he didn’t go.

“Alright, alright…”

Then he closed his eyes and fell asleep.
