The meeting with Gu Ran Ju was completely ignored by Mo Di. He had lunch with everyone and in the evening, went to meet Mu Tian Heng.
He wanted to spend the Lantern Festival with him but this time, they could only stay together for ten minutes before Mu Tian Heng had to get back to work.
Mu Tian Heng felt guilty for not being able to accompany Mo Di but Mo Di was satisfied with any amount of time he could spend with him.
Mu Tian Heng held him tight for a long time before going back to deal with the acquisition.
Fortunately, Mu Tian Heng’s sacrifice was not in vain.
On the day that Mo Di’s University reopened, an explosive piece of news swept the nation: The entertainment and real estate companies that were once under the Qin Group had now been relinquished to Impression!!!
The news was both shocking and confounding. Many did not understand why a software company like Impression would be interested in the entertainment and real estate businesses. And to think that the Qin Group would actually let them take over two of their most profitable businesses!
Although the Qin Group’s stock had fallen sharply recently, acquiring the two companies that accounted for thirty percent of their income was still a very tall order.
To resolve this unrest, Mu Tian Heng already had his public relations department prepare a press conference and at the same time help promote Impression together with the two newly renamed companies, Juan Di Entertainment and Juan Di Real Estate.
(TN: Regarding the name Juan Di 眷第, it is a show of affection towards Mo Di. Juan means to have tender feelings for and Di is obviously Mo Di’s name.)
Mo Di only knew that Mu Tian Heng had renamed the two companies as such through the news. He blushed but was too embarrassed to confirm with Mu Tian Heng the meaning behind the name.
Coincidentally, Mu Tian Heng sent him a message through WeChat.
He first asked about his school life and told him to send him a copy of his class schedule. Then he texted: The word juan from Juan Di means to love, as for the word di, Little One, you should understand what it means, right?
Mo Di’s face turned hotter.
But before he could send the reply ‘I know’, he received another message from Mu Tian Heng.
[It means I love you.]
Mo Di’s head was buzzing and his face turned scarlet.
Lin Jun Feng happened to be passing by and saw Mo Di turning red. He walked over and said, “Xiao Di, our school’s heating is pretty strong, you should take off your jacket if it’s too hot for you.”
“!” Mo Di was too flustered to think. He nodded and agreed readily, “I’m taking it off now. You should quickly get going.”
Lin Jun Feng saw Mo Di pulling down his jacket zipper and left without saying anything else.
Jing Da’s class schedule had become increasingly intense but this would not pose a problem to its students, after all, being admitted here meant that they could handle this curriculum. However, being able to excel academically while having fun with extracurricular activities like Mo Di was not something every student could do.
Mo Di could efficiently work on the game, do homework, and even take care of the group’s projects with ease. Much unlike his roommates who had been having a hard time adjusting to this new and hectic schedule. Luckily for them, Mo Di had been in charge of their group work which gave them one less thing to worry about.
Another two weeks passed and in late February, the deadline for uploading the next part of the game for the competition came to a close.
Under Mo Di’s supervision, Infinite Life had reached chapter 21 and currently had millions of players.
Having such a large player base under its belt, anyone could see that the game had great potential. Investors were flocking in to discuss cooperation with Mo Di and some even wanted to buy the copyright to the game. Nonetheless, they had all been rejected by him. Some even went over his head and spoke with the competition officials to help them sway him but it had been to no avail.
Eventually, Mo Di had to show his fierce side and openly expressed his unwillingness to even talk about selling the game.
A small number of officials were dissatisfied with Mo Di’s arrogance and tried to find fault with his team but they were soon reprimanded by the higher-ups. Mo Di’s game had millions of fans countrywide; if words were leaked that the team was being bullied, the competition itself would be in deep trouble. Furthermore, the competition also managed to garner a lot of support thanks to Mo Di’s game. The way things were at the moment, they needed Mo Di’s team to stay in the competition to maintain the hype. No one was dumb enough to get rid of their prize cow.
As such, although Mo Di was disliked by some, he was still untouchable.
On February 24th, the results were announced, and once again, Infinite Life was ranked at the top with points far surpassing the second place.
Everyone in the group cheered as they knew the championship was within grasp if they kept up the work. A celebration party was in order and Mo Di generously set aside five thousand yuan for them to spend. He, on the other hand, went home to be with Mu Tian Heng.
They hadn’t had any alone time for so many days. First, it was Mu Tian Heng who was busy with the acquisition and then when that was done, he had to rectify the newly acquired companies. When Mu Tian Heng’s work finally slowed down, it was Mo Di’s turn to be busy with school and the competition’s deadline. And so, for more than twenty days, the lovebirds had not had any dose of intimacy.
Mu Tian Heng had told Mo Di a few days ago that after they were finally free, he would like to hold a celebration for him for ranking first in the semifinals. He would bring him out for a day of fun.
Mo Di had been looking forward to it ever since!
He ran as fast as he could to the east entrance of the base.
When Mu Tian Heng saw him almost out of breath while running towards him, he stepped forward and adjusted his scarf.
“What are you running for? It’s easy to catch a cold if you sweat in this weather.”
But the first response Mu Tian Heng got was Mo Di tiptoeing and giving him a hug. He then raised his head and looked at him with sparkling eyes, “I was only thinking of wanting to see you as soon as possible.”
Mu Tian Heng felt his heart being poked at and stirred. He reached out and gently held Mo Di’s neck. Then he kissed him on the nose and lips.
“I missed you very much.”
Mo Di smiled sweetly and rubbed his head against Mu Tian Heng’s neck and tightened his hands around his waist.
“Brother, where are we going today?”
“I’m taking you for lunch then we’ll go to the amusement park, is that ok?” the love in Mu Tian Heng’s eyes was overflowing. He gazed at Mo Di in his embrace and only wanted to give him everything in the world.
As long his Mo Di was happy, everything was worth it.
Mu Tian Heng rubbed his hair and said, “Get in the car first. It’s warmer inside.”
“Hm!” Mo Di nodded.
Mu Tian Heng knew that Mo Di had not visited his favorite restaurant in a long time so he brought him there for lunch. Even the reservation had been done ahead of time.
While waiting for their food to arrive, Mu Tian Heng ordered Mo Di’s beloved Pudding Milk Tea which he happily drank while chatting with Mu Tian Heng.
The couple was in sweet bliss.
“Hm?” Mu Tian Heng looked at Mo Di lovingly.
“What is it?” Mu Tian Heng chuckled softly at him.
Mo Di called him in a low and coquettish voice. A little dimple appeared on his cheek as he smiled impishly. He simply wanted to call out to Mu Tian Heng without a need for any reason.
Mu Tian Heng also understood that Mo Di was calling him for no reason and he was happy to indulge him, responding to his every call.
The atmosphere was bubbling with sweetness. The two spent their meal in perfect harmony. Luckily, no one was there to see their affection or they would be choked with dog food.
After lunch, Mu Tian Heng brought Mo Di to the amusement park.
The last time Mo Di came here was over six months ago, and it was also Mu Tian Heng who had brought him here to play. Mo Di could still remember that day very clearly.
The first ride Mo Di wanted to get on was the pirate ship and Mu Tian Heng naturally accompanied his kid.
The two bought their tickets and began to unload their cell phones and other small belongings into the small box provided by the staff.
The ride was turbulent and exciting. Mo Di was screaming along with the other passengers as the ride rose and fell.
Mu Tian Heng maintained a calm appearance and would occasionally turn to look at Mo Di tenderly.
Their expressions were photographed and a total of twenty-one shots had been taken. Mo Di bought them all and hugged the treasured photos in his arms.
“They’re all mine,” Mo Di claimed.
Mu Tian Heng reached out and rubbed his hair, “Yes, it’s all yours.”
“But what’s mine is also yours,” Mo Di beamed, “Let’s buy some frames for them and hang them up at home.”
“Ok.” Mu Tian Heng was like a wife slave, “Everything you say goes.”
Mo Di was particularly happy. He pulled Mu Tian Heng towards the staff station to get their things back.
There were several cell phones left in the box and Mo Di immediately saw Mu Tian Heng’s. He picked it up and passed it to him then continued to search for his own.
He kept digging up the pile but his phone was nowhere to be found.
Mo Di’s expression had been gradually changing. He thought of the possibilities and felt a panic in his heart.
More customers came to get their things and soon only a few cell phones were left but none of them were Mo Di’s.
Mu Tian Heng also saw that Mo Di’s phone was missing from the box and knew that it had been either stolen or taken by mistake. He comforted Mo Di, “Don’t worry, we’ll find it.”
He then turned to the staff member and said in a stern voice, “The phone we left here for safekeeping is missing, this is your responsibility.”
The staff was also taken aback. He looked at the contents in the box and quickly replied, “Our guests usually recognize their things as it will be attached to the wristband they were given. Someone must’ve taken the wrong phone. My apologies, we’ll immediately put out a broadcast and help you find your phone. Can you please describe your phone?”
“The model is Huaka X30, it has a blue case.” Mu Tian Heng replied. When he turned back to Mo Di, he found Mo Di turning a little pale; it seemed he was really anxious. Mu Tian Heng quickly comforted, “We’ll definitely find it, don’t worry. Is there any important information inside?”
Mo Di looked up and opened his mouth but in the end, he just shook his head.
There was nothing important stored, only something that he had forgotten about and did not have the chance to delete yet.
That thing was basically a bomb.
A bomb that he absolutely must never let Mu Tian Heng find out!
“If there’s nothing important then don’t be too worried. It’s not good for your health. If we can’t get it back, let’s just buy a new one,” Mu Tian Heng coaxed him gently.
“I have to find it back!” Mo Di raised his voice unconsciously. “Brother, this phone is very important to me!”
“Then we’ll keep looking. Don’t worry, we’ll find it.”
Mu Tian Heng adjusted the scarf around Mo Di’s neck, “Come, let’s go to the lost and found and wait. Someone might be returning it already.”
“En.” Mo Di took a deep breath and forced himself to calm down.
Nothing will happen. Someone must’ve taken it by mistake.
Even if it had been taken on purpose, the perpetrator shouldn’t be able to decode the security system he had programmed on his phone.
Everything will be fine.
Nothing will happen.
