Chapter 31: Gifts for the Roommates
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Hey, how can you be like this? You told me to come in half an hour but you’re five minutes late!” Xia Yu laid lazily on the sofa and looked at Xia Wanyuan with an aggrieved expression.
God knew how he got up, dressed, washed up within two minutes, and ran all the way to the school gate. Everyone in the dormitory thought he had gone crazy.
“Why haven’t you been to the hospital for your checkup lately?” Xia Wanyuan passed her luggage to Nanny Li. She had just gotten off the plane when she received a call from his attending doctor yesterday, saying that Xia Yu hadn’t gone for his checkup at all.
“I recovered a long time ago. Why would I go for a follow-up check? If you don’t believe me, take a look.” Xia Yu pretended to raise his arm, but the vague pain made him frown.
“Go to the hospital with me,” Xia Wanyuan looked at Xia Yu unhappily. ‘It takes a hundred days for the bone to knit and the tendons to heal, yet this person is being so careless.’
“I’m not going. I have an appointment with my roommates for games later.” Xia Yu shrank his head.
“If you don’t go, then don’t bother coming to me in the future. Go and do whatever you want,” Xia Wanyuan said before heading downstairs.
“Let me tell you, I’m not going to the hospital because of your threat. Do you think I want to stay here?”
As expected, Xia Yu caught up with her not long after, but his beautiful eyes were filled with disdain.
“I know. You’re afraid that your heroic image will be damaged, right?”
Tsk, how could this person steal his lines? Xia Yu was stumped by Xia Wanyuan’s words. He sat in the front passenger seat and sulked alone while looking out of the window.
They took a scan when they arrived at the hospital. Thankfully, Xia Yu’s injuries healed quickly as he was still young, but he still could not make large sweeping gestures or movements. Resting for a while more would be sufficient for his complete recovery.
“Young man, your sister treats you pretty well. She comes with you every time for your checkup,” the doctor chatted with Xia Yu as he changed his dressing.
“Huh?” Xia Yu subconsciously replied. He turned to look at Xia Wanyuan, who was sitting in the waiting area. This was the first time he had a family member accompanying him while he was at the doctor’s.
“Well, I guess,” Xia Yu mumbled. The doctor did not notice his burning ears.
After treatment, Xia Yu followed Xia Wanyuan to collect his medicine. A person rushed in from the door. Seeing that the elevator was about to close, that person rushed over quickly. Xia Wanyuan did not notice and was almost knocked down by him. Xia Yu hurriedly supported her to prevent her from falling.
Not far away, a camera was focused on this scene. The camera’s owner grinned excitedly.
He did not expect that he would be able to take some “good” photos during his trip to the hospital due to a cold. They looked as if they were hugging each other in the photos. Even though the woman only had a side profile, those who were familiar with her could easily tell who she was.
“Are you blind!” Xia Yu shouted at the elevator, but the door had already closed. Xia Yu let go of Xia Wanyuan.
“Can you calm down?”
After getting the medicine, the chauffeur was about to drive the car back to the apartment.
“I’m living pretty well in the school dormitory.” Xia Yu didn’t have many friends since he was young, and he was used to being lazy, so he didn’t spend much time in school.
After being taught a good lesson by Jun Shiling and staying in the dormitory for a few days, he quite liked the atmosphere there.
This university was actually not bad. Back then, Father Xia had donated a building and had to pull some strings to get him in. His roommates had all entered the university through actual examinations. They were simple and well-educated.
“I’ll just stay in the dorm. My roommates are fun.”
“Sure.” Xia Wanyuan nodded. Indeed, he could not always live with his family as an adult man. He should have his own social circle.
“Chauffeur, take us to the supermarket.”
“What for?” Xia Yu was confused.
When they arrived at the supermarket, Xia Yu’s eyes turned red as she watched Xia Wanyuan search through Baidu while throwing all sorts of living essentials into the trolley. He pursed his lips and suppressed his tears.
Xia Wanyuan did not notice Xia Yu’s emotions. She was simply dazzled by the variety of goods available.
There was also a small supermarket next to the hotel where she lived. She liked to shop there when she had nothing to do. After all, every item here was very novel to her.
“What is this?” Xia Wanyuan handed the phone to Xia Yu. On it was a list of necessities needed by male university students. Xia Wanyuan pointed at the words that said ‘gaming computer’.
Xia Wanyuan knew these words when separated, but when put together, it was somewhat incomprehensible.
“It’s a computer for games,” Xia Yu explained to Xia Wanyuan about the popular PUBG and MOBA games.
After the explanation, Xia Wanyuan finally understood what it meant. In fact, it was similar to football and shuttlecock kicking in her previous life. The difference was that the games had developed into video games.
“Do you have one?” Xia Wanyuan had never objected to her siblings playing games. What she objected to was playing through life and having no serious ambition.
“It’s in the Xia family home.”
So Xia Wanyuan brought Xia Yu to the electronics section. She didn’t know what to buy, so she took the most expensive model in the area. The alien logo on the computer shone brightly.
These few days, he had finally experienced the hardships of the people. The Xia family was bankrupt, and Xia Yu knew that a certain family would not care about them at all. So, although he was touched, he was a little worried that Xia Wanyuan would buy things for him and not have any money left for herself.
“Hey, you don’t have to buy it.”
“I want four of these.”
Before Xia Yu could finish speaking, Xia Wanyuan had already finished communicating with the staff. Hearing that she wanted four, the staff grinned from ear to ear. A year’s worth of sales target had been hit one day! She ran over to write a receipt for Xia Wanyuan immediately. Her actions were so fast as if she was afraid Xia Wanyuan would go back on her word.
“Why did you buy so many?” Xia Yu was shocked. Had he worried about Xia Wanyuan for nothing?
“It’s your first time living in a dorm. Shouldn’t you bring some presents for your roommates?”
Xia Wanyuan acted as if nothing had happened. She estimated the amount of money the original owner of the body had in her card. She still could afford to buy a few computers. Furthermore, she had just read online that this was a present that all young men dreamed of.
Xia Yu was completely speechless.
The trunk was gradually filled up. When they arrived at the dormitory, it was impossible for the chauffeur and Xia Yu to move the things themselves.
Xia Yu called his roommates for help and soon, three sleepy people came down with their slippers.
“F*ck, Xia Yu, did you wipe out everything? Why are there so many things?”
Xia Yu was leaning against a pile of boxes that were half the height of a person downstairs. If he did not have a pretty face and an annoying expression, people who didn’t know him would have thought that he was a delivery man.
“Cut the crap and help me carry them up.”
There was a huge pile of boxes. The four young and strong men carried all of them to the sixth floor. Even though they were young, they were exhausted from carrying so many things. When they entered the dormitory, all of them were panting heavily.
“We worked so hard to move your things, you have to treat us to a meal.” Zhang Zhe wiped the sweat off his face and gulped down a mouthful of water, teasing Xia Yu.
“That’s right, that’s right. Let’s go to Quanjude for some Peking duck!”
The others agreed.
“What’s inside anyway? I’m exhausted from lugging it up.” Su Mei carried a heavy big box that was half the height of a person.
“You’ll know when you open it.”
There were no taboos between roommates. Su Mei immediately opened the box and the others surrounded him.
“F*ck! Holy sh*t!”
Different words were expressed in the same tone.
