Chapter 103: A Strange Family
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
After the delivery uncle got off the car, he took out his phone and dialed a number. In a loud, clear voice, he asked, “Hello, Student Shuhang? It’s me, Fengshou Express Delivery’s Little Jiang. I already arrived at Jiangnan College Town. Where are you, Student Shuhang? I’ll come to you right away!”
After Song Shuhang picked up, he quickly found Sima Jiang’s location, “Little Jiang, I’m at the hundred meter track across from you.”
Then, he waved at Sima Jiang and walked over to greet him.
Watching Shuhang’s figure from behind, Gao Moumou laughed aloud. He walked up and patted Zhuge Zhongyang. With a strange expression, he pointed at Sima Jiang in the distance, “See that, it’s a courier! Talk about looks, his aren’t worse than yours, right? Moreover, at his age, he even has more manly charisma than you do. The handsome and confident you are pathetic in front of him!”
Gao Moumou’s words were directed at what Zhuge Zhongyang previously said, ‘Which courier in the world can be as handsome, young, and rich as me?’
Look at you, too narcissistic; that’s why you received instant karma, isn’t it? A flashy and handsome courier uncle appeared immediately!
Gao Moumou secretly lauded Song Shuhang deep inside.
“Alright, so what if he’s as handsome as me?” Zhuge Zhongyang smiled smugly, shook his head and then said, “I’m younger than him, and I’m definitely richer than a courier.”
How could it be easy to shock someone this narcissistic?
As they spoke, Song Shuhang brought Sima Jiang over to them. “Tubo, Gao Moumou, I’m bringing Little Jiang back to the dorm to pick up a parcel. If I don’t get back in time, you guys need to cheer for Yangde in my place too!
“Leave it to us. Delivery uncle, you came just at the right time.” Tubo raised his thumb and gave him thirty-two thumbs up.
Sima Jiang was completely baffled, and didn’t know heads or tails of what Tubo was talking about. However, since it was student Song Shuhang’s roommate who seemed to be very passionate, Sima Jiang pondered then laughed, “I’m in the express delivery business, so I must appear like a timely rain.”
As Sima Jiang spoke, he took out a name card and handed it to Tubo, introducing himself, “This humble servant’s surname is Sima, and one-word name is Jiang, if you have any needs, you may call me.”
“Uncle, you’re too polite. My name is Tubo. Unfortunately, I don’t have a name card to give you.”
Sima Jiang smiled candidly, and gave Gaou Moumou and Zhuge Zhongyang name cards as well.
Then, he walked towards the dorm with Song Shuhang.
Only when Sima Jiang and Song Shuhang were far away did Gao Moumou ask while holding on to the card, “Why does this delivery uncle’s name card only have a name and a phone number?”
“Because he’s a courier, a name and a phone number is probably enough.” Zhuge Zhongyang conscientiously put away the business card. Whether or not it was useful, accepting a name card given by someone else was a matter of courtesy.
“The name sounds rather familiar.” Tubo laughed, and put away the name card.
“Come to think of it, Zhongyang, why did you come to Jiangnan College Town? Tell me the truth, or don’t blame me if I abandon you!” Gao Moumou returned to the topic, and asked.
Once Zhuge Zhongyang heard the question, his expression suddenly turned bitter and gloomy, “I snuck out wanting to see my future wife.”
“What?” Gao Moumou was stupefied, “When did you get a wife? Or did you go crazy thinking about one?”
“Go to hell.” Zhuge Zhongyang said depressingly, “Here’s what happened, the day before yesterday, when I was eating lunch, my father told me he was preparing to find me a wife, and that he would arrange the marriage before the end of this year. He wanted to hug a grandson in two years at the latest. His steadfast tone scared the piss out of me! If I wasn’t eating seated, then I would’ve knelt before my father there and then!”
“So, you wanted to be like a character in those melodramatic chic-flics where they are in the rebellious stage and don’t want to get married so they run away from home in refusal of marriage?” Gao Moumou asked. “That’s not right, then how do you know who your future wife is? And why did you come all the way to Jiangnan College Town?
“What the hell are you imagining? I’m telling you, that night, I secretly mixed some distilled spirit into my father’s ‘Deer Island Tonic Wine.’ My father is weirdo though, for him not to notice the peculiar taste… After two glasses, he was muddle-headed and drunk. I used all means possible to wheedle out all the information from his mouth.
My father found a total of five wive candidates, all from Huaxia. One of them, whose surname is Lu, is a chick who is an alumnus of Jiangnan College Town.”
Zhuge Zhongyang wiped his face and continued, “I personally came here to see what my five prospective wives look like, and interact with each of them. If there’s one to my liking, then I’ll make do with her and marry her, having a baby wouldn’t be a problem either.
If none of the five are to my liking and our personalities clash, then… I’ll go back immediately and find a lady to my liking before the end of the year. We’ll hold hands, and create a life to satisfy my father’s evil desire of hugging a grandson! So, that’s why I flew to Huaxia that very night!”
“You’re also doing your best.” Gao Moumou exclaimed, “What if your father acted on a whim?”
“That’s not possible, he definitely has some scheme. If it was just a whim, would he have found me five prospective wives?” Zhuge Zhongyang sneered, “Ever since I was ten years old, my father has been repeatedly talking about finding me a wife. He’s planned it for so many years, he must’ve made up his mind on having a grandson.”
His son was ten years old, and he already wanted to find him a wife?
And, a son who mixed strong distilled spirit into his father’s tonic wine…
Gao Moumou rolled his eyes; as expected, the Zhuge family was all weirdos!
How blind could I have been when I was small to have played together with this family?
On the other side, Sima Jiang peeked at the recipient information after taking the long boxed package from Song Shuhang.
[To Great Master Profound Principle.]
Another influential figure! I must personally hand over the delivery and strive to be acquainted with Great Master Profound Principle! Even if I can’t become an acquaintance, I must at least make the master be familiarized with my name!
“Student Shuhang, I will be taking your delivery. I promise to personally deliver this as fast as possible!” Sima Jiang carefully put away the package and said.
“No rush, just deliver it at the normal speed. How much is the delivery fee?” Song Shuhang asked.
“Normal delivery, ten RMB is enough!” Sima Jiang said.
Song Shuhang briskly paid the delivery fee, “Thanks for coming all the way here.”
“It’s nothing, if Student Shuhang ever needs to deliver something, don’t hesitate to call, I’ll be on call twenty-four hours!” Then, Sima Jiang held the parcel and patted his chest in guarantee.
Bidding Shuhang farewell, he got on his car in a delighted mood and began his return to Jiangnan area’s Fengshou Express Delivery headquarters. There, a private plane was waiting, and all sorts of takeoff preparations were complete. It was ready to take off at any time.
The delivery car sped down the public road like Sima Jiang’s delighted mood.
When Sima Jiang passed by Auspicious Street Area’s neighboring road, a man on the side of the road suddenly looked up suspiciously at the delivery car.
‘What I sensed just now came from that delivery car?’ he reached towards his chest where a crimson talisman was slightly heated up.
‘Su Clan’s junior is going out? Why did she choose to take an express delivery car?’
With no time to think, the man got on his motorcycle, and floored down on the accelerator, chasing after the delivery car.
The morning passed, and the three dorm mates finished their competitions.
In the afternoon, Gao Moumou was dragged by off Zhuge Zhongyang to plan ‘how to ask out Zhuge’s future wife candidates.’ Gao Moumou was not returning any time soon.
Yangde burned off all the calories he stored for many years in the morning’s hundred-meter race, and in the afternoon, he returned to his rented lair to turtle up.
Tubo brought his computer and left with Yangde… Yangde’s internet speed was faster than the school’s.
Shuhang watched the rarely clouded sky. The weather was nice.
I should go cultivate.
Now, he could finally test the effects of qi and blood pill that he obtained yesterday!
