Chapter 48: Buying a car


Tu Sisi was cooking at home. After she moved here, she cooked by herself. Firstly, it was clean and hygienic, and secondly, she cooked her food to suit her own taste.

Tu Sisi scrambled a tomato scrambled egg, a braised octopus, and then filled the bowl with rice. Then she sat on the dining table and ate happily.

Tu Sisi said to herself, “Good~ My craftsmanship has improved a lot compared to my previous life. When Gu Xia comes, he will be surprised when he eats my food, hehe~”

Tu Sisi felt a sense of satisfaction while eating the meal she made.

“Ding Dong!”

“Sisi, open the door.”

When Tu Sisi heard Hu Chao’s voice, her expression turned to one that was full of helplessness. 

‘This guy came again, and he is so annoying! Why didn’t she realize that Hu Chao was so thick-skinned before? He’s really…’

After Tu Sisi opened the door, she continued to sit down to eat, glanced at Hu Chao, saw him sitting down with a smile, and pouted.

“What are you eating? Great, I didn’t eat either, will you mind if we eat together?” Hu Chao laughed.

“Eat, if you want to eat…”

Hu Chao filled a bowl of rice, then sat down to eat, looked at Tu Sisi and said with a smile, “Sisi, the food you cook is so delicious, it tastes better than my mother’s, hehe~”

“Really? Eat more if it’s delicious!”



The next day, Gu Xia woke up early and had to go to class.

Today he specially wore a down jacket, because yesterday he wore a woolen jacket, but he was nearly frozen to death.

“Oh, brother, why are you back?”

Gu Qin looked at Gu Xia who walked out of the door and asked in surprise.

“I came back last night.” Gu Xia touched his nose and said.

“Oh~ Have some porridge! Mom and Dad have already gone to work.” Gu Qin nodded and said.

Gu Xia quickly drank a bowl of porridge, and when he was about to go out to the university, he heard Gu Qin say, “Brother, give me some money, I have no pocket money.”


Gu Xia took out his wallet, there were two thousand yuan in it, and he took out five hundred.

“Here~ I’ll give it to you, but don’t waste money!” Gu Xia urged.

“Understood, I’m not a child.” Gu Qin said with dissatisfaction and took the money, her face full of smiles.

“Yea~ Now I can go and buy that down jacket that I have been interested in for a long time. I begged mom for a long time, but she won’t buy it for me. Thanks, brother.” Gu Qin said happily.

“Hehe, here you go, I’ll give you another two hundred, as long as you don’t mess around, you can buy as much food and clothes as you want, I’m leaving.”

Gu Xia gave Gu Qin another two hundred yuan, and then went out. Originally, Gu Xia wanted to give her the two thousand in his wallet, but after thinking that she was only in her third year in high school, he judged that it was not a good idea to give her that much money. Although he knew that his sister would not spend money indiscriminately, but two thousand was way too much pocket money for a high school student. Gu Xia always felt it was a little inappropriate.

Anyway, she would ask him herself if she has no money, and he could just give it to her next time.

Gu Xia went downstairs, and it was still snowing heavily outside. The snow on the ground was so thick that his shoe would sink in just by stepping on it .

The snowman Gu Xia made was still there, and a few children were playing around the snowman.

Gu Xia smiled, and then walked slowly through a road where many sanitation workers were shoveling the snow.

Gu Xia looked at the road and saw that there were no cars, let alone taxis.

Feeling helpless, Gu Xia had to walk to the bus station not far away. As there was no way to get a taxi, he had to take the bus even though it would be very slow.

He had to go to class. When he needed to travel to the city, he could just take a taxi. There should be more taxis in the city than here. Otherwise, he would have to transfer 3 times by bus. That would cause him to be late for class.

When he arrived at the university gate, it was already very late, and there were only 15 minutes remaining before the class started. Gu Xia hurried to the classroom. When he got into the classroom, the bell rang. 

‘That was close! I was almost late.’

“Why are you so late today?” Xu Mengying asked.

“I went home last night, but I couldn’t get a taxi in the morning when it snowed. I couldn’t help it.” Gu Xia shook the snow on his body and said helplessly.

“Oh, so that’s the case. You always come to class very early, it is the first time you came so late.” Xu Mengying nodded.

“Okay, here comes the teacher.”


At night, Gu Xia got a call from Xu Fan.

“Hey, Brother Xu, what’s the matter?” Gu Xia, who was reading a book, asked.

“It’s like this. At present, the App of our external platform is almost finished. It will be ready in a few days. You have no classes on weekends, so why don’t you come over to see how it’s going. By the way, have you bought a car?” Xu Fan asked.

“I haven’t bought one yet. I’ll take a look at the car tomorrow, buy the car as soon as possible, and then drive to the capital.” Gu Xia smiled.

“Well, good. You have to do that as soon as possible. You may be asked to come here often in the future. After all, you came up with this project, and many things still require you to come and see.”

“I know, Brother Xu, I will deal with it as soon as possible.” Gu Xia replied.

“Alright, that’s it, let’s talk about other things when you come in a few days!”

“Okay, good bye.”

After hanging up the phone, Gu Xia wondered what car should he buy?

Should he buy a domestic car? No, the domestic cars right now were not as good as they would be in the future, whether be it in quality or appearance. So he had to either buy a collaboration or an imported car. 

First of all Gu Xia removed the cars from Jap*n and Kor*a, these two countries. Gu Xia didn’t like the cars from these two countries because of their tendency to cut corners, and being too brittle as a result. Although many people liked their fuel-saving feature, but do they ever think about why they were fuel-efficient? Isn’t it because they were too light?

So Gu Xia has never been interested in the cars of these two countries. In his previous life, Gu Xia had bought a Chevrolet Miraibao, so Gu Xia was thinking about what car to buy this time. In addition to the 200,000 he gave to his father, he also had 70 More than 90,000. Gu Xia thought about it for a long time, but could not decide what car to buy.

He wanted to buy a Mercedes-Benz, BMW, or Audi, but the good quality imported ones were very expensive. Gu Xia liked Mercedes-Benz’s Big G, but the Big G cost at least one million yuan, which was the cheapest.

He didn’t really want to buy cheap ones. Gu Xia decided to stop thinking so hard and go to the 4S store the next day to take a look. He wanted to take a look at some cars first. (G: 4S Shop is an automobile dealership authorized by an automobile manufacturer to engage in the four businesses relating to sales, spare parts, service and survey.)

The next day, Gu Xia came to Cheyou Road in the urban area. This road was full of 4S shops for selling cars. Gu Xia advanced to the Mercedes-Benz 4S shop.

The beauty at the door welcomed him with a smile on her face, “Welcome, sir, do you want to buy a car?”


“Hello, I’m the sales manager of our shop. My name is Wu Dan. You can call me Xiao Wu. Please come in first. We have a full range of Mercedes-Benz models. I’ll show you first.” Wu Dan said enthusiastically.

Gu Xia nodded, then walked into the 4S shop. There were several people looking at cars, and almost all of them were middle aged. Gu Xia was the youngest one here.

“Sir, what would you like to drink? We have black tea, green tea, coffee, chrysanthemum tea…”

Gu Xia heard Wu Dan’s list of drinks, and couldn’t help but smile and said, “No need, just give me a glass of warm water.”

“Okay, wait a minute, I’ll be right here.”

Gu Xia looked around. There were many models in this hall. There were C series, E series, and S series models that were quite common.

Suddenly Gu Xia saw a white Maybach. He walked over and saw that it was a Maybach S300. Its price was nearly 2 million! Gu Xia swallowed hard, it was really expensive!

At this time period, there were no S600 or Big G, and this Maybach S300 was the representative of luxury cars at the moment!
