After Gu Xia left Col*mbia University, he was very bored. He didn’t know what to do. One of the reasons was that he wasn’t familiar with the place, while the other was that he did not understand the language at all.
Gu Xia felt like he was in a fantasy novel. It was as if he had traveled from modern times to another world, and he was not accustomed to the environment at all!
Gu Xia stopped a taxi and showed him the note with Tu Sisi’s address that he was carrying.
Now Gu Xia took this note with him wherever he went. Otherwise, if he got lost, he really wouldn’t know what to do!
After arriving near Tu Sisi’s residence, Gu Xia paid the driver, and then went to W*l-Mart to buy some vegetables to put in the refrigerator.
Back in Chi*a, it was night.
Li Sicheng and Wang Qian were shopping in the supermarket. During this time, the two made rapid progress in their relationship. They had already met their parents and planned to get married a year later, after Wang Qian finishes her studies. Now, they were buying invitations and things they would need for the marriage ceremony.
“It’s a pity that Sisi is not here, otherwise she would be perfect as my bridesmaid.” Wang Qian sighed.
“There’s no other way, she’s getting treatment.” Li Sicheng hugged Wang Qian and comforted her.
“I’m alright. I don’t know when I can see her.”
“Soon, She’ll be back when she gets better.” Li Sicheng said.
“Okay~ by the way, did you tell Gu Xia that we are getting married and asked him to be the best man?” Wang Qian asked.
“Not yet. I’ll give him a call later, and he’ll definitely agree anyways.”
At Gu Xia’s house, Li Jingjing was in Gu Qin’s room. The two were lying on the bed. Gu Qin was playing with the smartphone Gu Xia had bought her, with a smile on her face.
Li Jingjing stared at the words “Brother Xiaoxia” on the mobile phone screen in a daze.
Gu Qin looked at Li Jingjing who was in a daze, and couldn’t help sighing, ‘My best friend, why have you been acting like this lately?’
Gu Qin said helplessly, “Oh… Jingjing, you can call my brother if you want. He rejected you, but you can continue to chase him! It’s not like they are married yet! You still have a chance! I support you. What’s more, if you get together Gu Xia, my parents and your mother will be very happy too.”
Li Jingjing heard her words, bit her lip, but still didn’t speak.
“You! If you avoid my brother like this, not only will you grow further and further apart, but the possibility between the two of you will become even more impossible. Woman! Grab your love tightly in your own hands, or you will regret it later.” Gu Qin used what she had watched on TV and romance novels to enlighten Li Jingjing.
Li Jingjing sighed, didn’t she also know that? But would that really be good? Her Brother Xiaoxia didn’t like her, could she really grab him?
Li Jingjing didn’t know anything about Gu Xia’s unknown girlfriend, and an unknown opponent was terrifying! She didn’t even know where to start. She also didn’t know where she had advantages and disadvantages compared to her unknown rival.
Li Jingjing looked at Gu Qin, and suddenly envied her a little. She envied her ability to be carefree every day, and always have a smile.
They say that true love came true, but she didn’t know when her own feelings would come true!
“Who do you think of when you’re alone, do you also want to be with someone…”
Gu Xia, who was watching TV, picked up the phone, pressed the answer button, and jokingly said, “Sicheng, you finally had the time to call me. Are you sure that you want to talk to me rather than going all kissy-kissy with your Wang Qian!”
“Hehe, why are you spouting nonsense? Come out, let’s go for a drink. We’ve almost reached your house.” Li Sicheng laughed.
“I want to drink but I’m afraid I can’t~”
“What’s wrong?” Li Sicheng asked suspiciously.
“I’m in Amer*ca.”
“Ah! Did you go to meet Sisi? When did you go?” Li Sicheng asked in surprise. Wang Qian next to him also looked at Li Sicheng after hearing their conversation.
“Well, I came yesterday.” Gu Xia smiled.
“Oh~ when are you coming back? Wang Qian and I are going to get married on the 22nd of the twelfth lunar month, and I want you to be my best man.”
Gu Xia smiled when he heard the words, the speed these two people were advancing was really fast! They were already about to get married.
“Don’t worry, I’ll come back before that. I’ll be the best man when you get married.” Gu Xia smiled.
“Alright, how is it like in the US? Is it fun?” Li Sicheng asked.
“Far from it! You also know that my English is poor shi*t. There are foreigners everywhere here, and I can’t understand their language, so I can’t do anything.” Gu Xia smiled bitterly.
“Haha, who told you to be such an idiot. Aren’t you a university student? You can’t even speak English. Even I can say— Hello! My name is Li Sicheng.” Li Sicheng joked, and Wang Qian next to him laughed out loud.
Gu Xia rolled his eyes, who couldn’t say that! Even elementary school students knew how to say it. But what’s the use of just being able to say hello? If you wanted to ask for directions, you wouldn’t know how to ask. If you wanted to eat, you wouldn’t know how to order food. You wouldn’t understand road signs, or understand menus, you wouldn’t understand anything.
Besides, foreigners didn’t speak English like the teacher who taught us. They speak English very fast. Gu Xia once tried to listen to what they were saying, and it all seemed like a bunch of gibberish. He felt dizzy.
“Why are you getting married so quickly? It’s only ten days until the 22nd of the twelfth lunar month, why are you in so much hurry? It’s not like you made Wang Qian’s belly bigger, right? Didn’t you wear a cond*m?” After Gu Xia finished speaking, he remembered what he did in his previous life.
“Fu*k you, who would forget to use a cond*m!” Li Sicheng scolded with a smile.
“What cond*m?” Wang Qian asked.
Li Sicheng smiled, and whispered in Wang Qian’s ear. Wang Qian’s face immediately turned red, and she scolded, “This Gu Xia is so bad. Sisi was right, he really has a dirty mind. So annoying! Just wait for me to call Sisi and ask her to discipline him properly.”
“Haha~ Did you hear that? My wife says that she’ll call Sisi and ask her to discipline you.” Li Sicheng laughed.
Gu Xia heard them, touched his nose in embarrassment.
“The main reason is that both of our parents knew about our relationship, and we both were their only children. As soon as the adults met up, they decided for us to get married during the New Year. They also said that, when we have children in the future, they would take turns looking after them. Our house was renovated a long time ago, and we’ve finished buying all the home appliances and furniture. So we’re just waiting to get married and move in.” Li Sicheng looked at Wang Qian and said with a smile.
“Hehe, that’s fine, congratulations! I will send a housewarming gift in the future.” Gu Xia smiled.
“How are you and Sisi?”
“It’s alright, we stick together every day, just like you two.” Gu Xia smiled.
“That’s good, I don’t know when you and Sisi will be able to take the next step. My son will probably be running around and the two of you will still be just taking it slow.”
“Haha~ I’m not sure. Even if we want to get married, we have to wait until after graduating from the university.” Gu Xia laughed.
Gu Xia was right, Tu Sisi’s illness had not stabilized yet, and she was still studying. What’s more, she was going to enter the modeling industry. They had to stay in different countries and it was impossible for him to run here every day. So, it wasn’t possible for them to get married in a short time.
Moreover, with the current bond between himself and Tu Sisi, it didn’t matter whether they get married or not. After all, the two had long regarded each other as their other half.
Marriage was just a formality for the two of them. However, it was something that had to be done, otherwise their parents would definitely have complaints. Gu Xia also wanted to make a career before marriage and give Tu Sisi a grand wedding. He wanted to create a better future for the both of them!
