Ever since the Mo family had fallen into their trap, Mo Di had rarely recalled the past.
What happened in the past was sealed in the depths of his memories. His days were spent working on his career and indulging in his love nest with Mu Tian Heng.
His game company had officially entered the market with Infinite Life as its debut product. At present, it had garnered a hundred and nineteen million sign-ups, breaking the record for the highest number of sign-ups for an upcoming game.
Fans were visiting their website every day to urge them for the early release of Infinite Life.
Since the game competition had ended, due to the copyrights, the games were no longer available online. Fans could not even play the previous chapters to quench their thirst and had to wait painfully for the new releases.
Mo Di read the posts and smiled. He told Zhao Chun to post on Weibo that the official release date would be on July 15th and gave the fans something to look forward to.
Whether it was the game they were producing or the company itself, many could foresee their successful future. It was predicted that in less than two years, Mo Di’s game company will rise to become one of Hua Xia’s top companies, overtaking many of its predecessors.
This statement had brought about a wave of objections from fans of other game companies who voiced their criticisms over the net. Mo Di just laughed it off but he did not deny it. After all, even with all the adversities in his last life, his company had risen to become one of the top three game companies in Hua Xia.
In this life, his goal was no longer limited to Hua Xia but the world.
The workload of being a Jing Da student had become heavier as the end of the term approached along with the numerous exams. Mo Di had been too busy to have a proper date with his brother. And so, on the last day of exams, he rushed out of the classroom and headed straight for the gate where a black Maybach had been waiting.
Before Mo Di could settle down, he was pulled into a powerful embrace and kissed passionately.
After his initial surprise, Mo Di actively countered, cuddling and groping in Mu Tian Heng’s arms while calling out for him between their kisses.
Mu Tian Heng, who had been dormant for a long time, was dangerously close to losing his control. After kissing him fiercely, he patted Mo Di lightly on the head. Softly he spoke, “You shouldn’t get cocky just because I pamper you too much or I’ll have to do something about it.”
“I’m not scared.” Mo Di raised his head and mischievously sucked on Mu Tian Heng’s Adam’s apple. His eyes shone triumphantly as Mu Tian Heng’s heart was softened with helplessness. He leaned over and planted a deep red hickey on Mo Di’s neck.
“A small punishment.” Mo Di’s eyes widened. It was now summer and he couldn’t cover it!
Mu Tian Heng laughed at the rare look of astonishment on Mo Di’s face. He rubbed his hair and kissed his cheek, “Be good now. No one will ask.”
Mo Di unconvincingly grabbed Mu Tian Heng’s neck and planted a revenge hickey on him, “If someone asks, I’ll just say it’s a mosquito bite.”
“Alright, alright. I’m a big mosquito that only bites my little one,” Mu Tian Heng smiled and said in a pampering voice, making Mo Di’s ears turn red.
He cleared his throat and changed the topic, “Brother, Uncle Song is coming for dinner tonight, should we show off some of our culinary skills?”
“About this, Lai De Si said that he wants to be the main cook today,” Mu Tian Heng said this with much doubt.
Mo Di hurriedly shook his head, “That’s a bad idea. His fried eggs tasted particularly bad and he always burned the pan while cooking pork. I understand that he wanted to please Uncle Song but his level is just too… Hai.”
Mo Di sighed for Lai De Si.
Mu Tian Heng smiled, “It’s alright, let him try. In fact, he’s been practicing in the kitchen for the past two weeks. Yesterday his fried eggs and green pepper pork were somewhat edible.”
“Actually…” Mo Di’s eyes lit up as he thought of a way, “Brother, aren’t there ready-made seasoning packs in the supermarket? Brother Lai De Si can make decent dishes with those. The most important thing is that he is the one who personally made them. Wouldn’t it fix everything?”
Mu Tian Heng: “I have proposed this method but was rejected by him, saying that it lacks sincerity.”
“Sincerity…” Mo Di was speechless, “Alright, let’s leave it to him then.”
When they reached the villa, they could hear the sound of pots and pans clanging in the kitchen. Suan Suan was running frantically towards Mo Di. It stood on its hind legs and grabbed at his knees, all the while with its tail wagging non-stop.
Mo Di picked Suan Suan up and tapped on his tiny nose, “Did you miss me?”
Suan Suan happily stuck out its tongue and continued to shake its tail vigorously.
Thanks to Lai De Si’s exorbitant reminder, Mo Di knew that Song Yu’s favorite dishes were spicy steamed fish, fried shrimps, and braised spareribs. To think that Lai De Si could perfectly cook the spare ribs, that was quite impressive.
Seeing Mo Di’s surprised look, Lai De Si said proudly, “I bought shrimps as well but at the moment, I can’t make Xiao Yu’s favorite fried shrimps. I’ll simply steam it with ginger and vinegar for now. Xiao Yu would still love them!”
Mo Di has had goosebumps at the sight of Lai De Si’s thoughtfulness. He couldn’t help but tease, “How is your relationship coming along? Have you confessed yet?”
Hearing the word ‘confession’, Lai De Si’s face turned beet red. Such a grown man of almost thirty and yet was stuttering at the words of his junior.
“I, I don’t have the courage yet. I’ll wait till my thirtieth birthday to confess. It’s my birthday after all, Xiao Yu might not have the heart to reject me.”
Mo Di vaguely remembered that Lai De Si was half a year older than his Mu Tian Heng. So his birthday is in August, about two months left.
Mo Di hoped that Lai De Si would succeed. As a matter of fact, he believed that Lai De Si’s effort had not gone unnoticed. If someone whom Song Yu did not like were to shower him with gifts, he would’ve rejected the items, unlike now in which he would offer to return the favor with a meal or a chance for Lai De Si to meet him.
Furthermore, Song Yu already knew about that matter.
While Mo Di was deep in thought, he did not notice the change on Mu Tian Heng’s face when Lai De Si said ’till my thirtieth birthday.’
Although Mu Tian Heng knew Lai De Si was doing his best to please his crush, he himself would also like to cook for Mo Di. After all, it was rare for his little one to return home, he couldn’t possibly let him be Lai De Si’s lab rat.
Mu Tian Heng headed in to occupy the kitchen and made several dishes: Chilli fish head, Sweet and sour pork, braised beef brisket with tomatoes, and steamed cod. The fragrance alone was enough to make Lai De Si salivate and at the same time, painfully saw the cruel contrast between their dishes.
Mo Di had been helping alongside Mu Tian Heng. From time to time, Mu Tian Heng would lean over and kiss his hair and cheek. The two acting lovey-dovey was like a stab to Lai De Si’s eyes.
He could no longer live in this house as a single dog!
Lai De Si swore that when Yu Yu was finally in his arms, he would return and flaunt their love in front of these two, especially when Mo Di wasn’t back from school. That’ll show Mu Tian Heng, that beast!
At six in the evening, Song Yu arrived on the dot.
The moment the doorbell rang, Lai De Si was like a police dog, dashing out from the kitchen with a broad smile plastered on his face, “Xiao Yu, you’re here.”
Mo Di who was playing with Suan Suan in the living room felt that Lai De Si was only missing a tail.
Mu Tian Heng rubbed his hair and said, “Let’s go.”
“En!” Mo Di nodded.
Song Yu smiled when he saw them. He said to Mo Di, “Has Xiao Di grown taller? You should be about 180cm.”
“We just had a physical examination a few days ago. I’m at 180.66cm now,” Mo Di said proudly, “My goal is 182cm. I believe I can get to that height.”
“Of course, our Xiao Di is quite extraordinary,” Song Yu said while the two bottles of wine in his hands were taken over by Lai De Si who was buttering up to him. He smiled brightly and said, “Xiao Yu, let me help you with this.”
“Xiao Yu, come in and take a seat in the living room. The food will be ready soon. I’m manning the kitchen today, you should have a taste of my food.”
Looking at the tall and big Lai De Si behaving like a silly puppy, Song Yu couldn’t help feeling sweet. He smiled and said, “Ok.”
Ever since the time Mo Di asked him if he found Lai De Si familiar and if he remembered someone who had secretly watched him every day during his university days, Song Yu had given a lot of thought regarding Lai De Si. Was Xiao Di hinting something to him?
After that, Song Yu kept reminiscing about the redhead who was always at the basketball court watching him for a year. The more he thought about it, the more he found that Lai De Si was indeed quite similar to that kid.
He had spoken to Mo Di about his suspicion and although Mo Di did not confirm, he did not deny it either. Under Mo Di’s subtle implication, Song Yu finally knew where Lai De Si was coming from. He had also stopped turning down his advances and slowly opened up to him.
His only surprise was that the boy from those years ago still had the same light in his eyes when looking at him. And just like back then, he would still blush at the sight of him, almost like a silly but loyal Tibetan Mastiff.
Every time they interacted, Lai De Si seemed like he was dancing but he was too timid to take another step. Sometimes he wondered if Lai De Si had a tail stuck to his back. If there wasn’t one then he’s definitely missing a tail.
The silly mutt.
