Chapter 40: Mid-Autumn Festival

“Ring! Ring! Ring!”

It was Tu Sisi’s call.

“Hello, Sisi?”

Gu Xia said cautiously, he was afraid that Sisi was still ill, that she would ask about Chengcheng again.

[Gu Xia, I have written your plan and sent it to your email. Should read it to see if it’s okay.]

Realizing that Tu Sisi was alright, Gu Xia breathed a sigh of relief and said with a smile, “Okay, you are alright!”

Although Gu Xia himself had written almost the same things, Tu Sisi’s writing style was much better than his. He could just look through it later, and add some of his own ideas in it.

“It’s all good~ I really should thank you for just now, or else I really don’t know what would have happened!” Tu Sisi said with some lingering fear.

“Hehe~ Isn’t it okay now, and when are you going to the professor for treatment?” Gu Xia asked.

[I’ll go later, Hu Chao will take me there. He is familiar with Professor Smith. Although Dad gave me Professor Smith’s address, I am not familiar with this place, and I am afraid that my illness may act up in the middle. He also wanted to take me there. So, it’s better to be safe.]

“Well, it’s fine. I can rest assured if he takes you there.”

Gu Xia knew that Tu Sisi was afraid that he would think too much, so she explained it, but with the depth of feelings between the two, how could he not believe her?

[That’s all, I am hanging up. I’m going to eat something. I’m not used to eating here and I also didn’t eat anything yesterday.]

“Alright, take care of yourself. If you’re not used to eating foreign food, go to a Chinese restaurant to eat. Don’t stay hungry and lose weight. Don’t let me see that you’ve gotten thin. I still like you a little plump and it feels comfortable that way.” Gu Xia said with a smile.




Gu Xia opened the mailbox and looked at the plan written by Tu Sisi. It was indeed better than what he wrote, but some parts needed to be revised. It was already very late today. He needed to go to the Internet cafe tomorrow to make revisions, and then print it out!

After thinking about it, Gu Xia fell back to sleep. Although it was not easy to get drunk from beer, that didn’t make it less uncomfortable!

In the next few days, Gu Xia spent all his time studying. When he had time, he went to see his adoptive grandfather, cook for him, and chat with him.

On the contrary, Han Jing called Gu Xia twice, but when Gu Xia repeatedly said that she had a girlfriend, she stopped calling.

Some things needed to be explained in advance, otherwise the situation would get complicated later.

The night before the Mid-Autumn Festival, when Gu Xia was about to go home, he received a call from his adoptive grandfather Xu Tianxiang.

“Hey, Gu Xia! Have you gone home yet?”

“Not yet, I am just getting ready now, what’s the matter, do you need me for something, grandpa.”

“It’s like this, isn’t it the Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow? My grandchildren and granddaughters will come here tomorrow to celebrate the festival with this old man. They will leave in the afternoon the day after tomorrow. Come over for lunch the day after tomorrow! You have to tell him about your plans then.”

“Okay, grandpa.”

“Good, that’s it, be careful on the road.”


After hanging up the phone, Gu Xia looked a little excited. The day after tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, he must do his best. That will be the day when Gu Xia rises.


Gu Xia rode the bicycle he rode last time and hummed a song all the way home. He was in a very good mood.

Finally, the opportunity that belonged to Gu Xia had come, and finally he would no longer be as mediocre as he was in his previous life.

When Gu Xia got home, it happened that the meal was already set up.

“Gu Xia, did you come back this early? I didn’t know that you would come back early to cook, but I will be able to eat your cooking.” Gu Qin said tenderly.

“If you think that the food I make is unpalatable, then don’t eat it later.” Tang Chunhua said angrily.

“How can I dislike the food you cook, mom! It’s just that Gu Xia’s food is a little better than the food you cook.” Gu Qin hurriedly dragged his mom and said sweetly.

“You only know how to eat, I haven’t seen you for a few days, and this face is round again. ” Gu Xia smiled and pinched the face of Gu Qin, hmmm… it’s squishy..

“I hate it! Mom, you see Gu Xia pinching my face again, my face is becoming round because he pinches it so much.” Gu Qin shook Tang Chunhua’s arm and said angrily.

“Haha~ Okay, let’s eat!” Gu Feng called them with a smile.


Gu Xia looked at the angry Gu Qin and couldn’t help laughing, “We can hang a soy sauce bottle on your pouting mouth.”

“Ha ha ha~”

Gu Feng and Tang Chunhua also laughed when they heard his words.

“Stinky Gu Xia, rotten Gu Xia, bad Gu Xia…” Gu Qin kept angrily scolding Gu Xia.

“Xia Xia, I discussed with your Uncle Mao and the others, and they all think that we can do this decoration company. Now we just need to find an office and people. We are not in a hurry now, and the office is also easy to find, but the material manufacturer is difficult to find. Ah, after all, there are too many materials needed to decorate a family home, and your Uncle Mao and I are going to look for the material factory today.” Gu Feng sighed.

“Dad, you can find that slowly. My advice to you is not to find too poor materials. If the materials are poor, although the company will make a little more money, it will not last long.” Gu Xia nodded and suggested.

“Yes, your Uncle Mao and I also think the same way. Several material manufacturers have called in the past few days. We didn’t agree. We plan to see it for ourselves and then decide.” Gu Feng nodded and said.

“That’s good. You and Uncle Mao are good at this.”

“Alright, by the way, I bought you a laptop so that you can check the information. I saw that everyone in university has a computer. Although our family is not very wealthy, but we can do at least that much.”

“Umm… thank you dad.” Gu Xia told his father some things to pay attention to, and went back to his room to sleep.

There was a laptop in the room. It was a Hu*wei brand. Although it was a domestic brand, Hu*wei, was amongst the world’s top 500 domestic brands, has been leading in technology for a long time.

Gu Xia was quite skilled at booting, plugging in the wireless network card, and running some necessary applications on the computer, such as QQ and music player.

Opening the mailbox, he modified the file Tu Sisi had sent him, and saved it.

He planned to just print it out tomorrow.

The next day, Gu Xia went out to have fun with Gu Qin for a while and bought her two clothes.

In the evening, Gu Xia personally cooked a table full of dishes.

Gu Feng also went to the countryside to pick up Gu Xia’s grandparents for reunion.

“Xia Xia, go downstairs and shoot firecrackers. It’s time for dinner.” Gu Feng shouted.

Gu Xia responded, picked up the disc-like firecracker at the door, lit it downstairs, and a deafening sound was suddenly heard.

Others also lit firecrackers one after another.

Gu Xia thought about the sound of “crackling” outside, smelled the smell of firecrackers…it was such a nostalgic smell and sound!

Although it was not environmentally friendly, it was very useful in festivals!

Unlike the New Year and festivals in the future, which were mundane and boring.

After the ban on fireworks and firecrackers in his previous life, Gu Xia’s family went to his grandfather’s house in the countryside every year.

The culture of fireworks was still the same in the countryside. After all, they would not ban it in the countryside for a while.

“Come, sit down and eat.”

The family had a lively meal, and his grandparents were also very happy. After all, they were reunited with their children and grandchildren after a long time!
