The exam week flew by with Mo Di completing all his exams with ease before carrying his suitcase and heading home.
The beautiful summer vacation had come!
Mo Di already had in mind how he would be spending his days.
He would wake up in the morning with Mu Tian Heng and they would jog together, have breakfast together and go to work together. At work, they could spend their lunch break together and after work, they’ll go home together. At home, they would chat and kiss and hug.
The mere thought of it was just perfect!
Mo Di couldn’t help but blush.
Mu Tian Heng was thinking the same but with much more added ‘activities’. After all, once the old beast had a taste, his appetite was hard to quench.
Xian Yu Chao and the others did not return home for the summer either. They all worked in the office arranged by Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di with several new members that Mo Di had recruited. With that, his company was beginning to fall on the right track.
On July fifteenth, Infinite Life officially launched. Excluding the old players from the game competition, the number of new players logging on to the game had exceeded two hundred million. The number alone had broken the record for the highest log-ins for a new game and would continue to rise. Even a month after its launch, Infinite Life had over three hundred and seventy million log-ins on the weekdays and over four hundred million on the weekends!
There was no doubt that Infinite Life had become the most popular game in Hua Xia and had surpassed its competitors by a large margin. The success of Infinite Life had opened the door for Mo Di’s company to enter the market with a splash, breaking into the forefront of the gaming industry with unlimited potential.
After the game’s first-month debut, Mo Di generously held a celebratory party for everyone using his personal funds. They were treated to a few days’ stay in a lavish resort on the outskirts of the city. In addition, Mo Di also gave each of them a big bonus and an extra week of paid annual leave.
Such benefits to students like Xian Yu Chao and the others did not seem like much but to Zhao Chun and those who had been in the field for several years were overly thrilled. She screamed with joy and gave Mo Di a big hug.
Mo Di was a little guilty because this giveaway was not without motive. The summer vacation was coming to an end and although he and his Mu Tian Heng could spend any amount of time together even when they were bored, they hadn’t traveled anywhere together. It would be a pity if they could not at least spend a few days abroad before their busy days started all over again.
With his enemies gone and his career developing steadily, Mo Di was very satisfied with his current life. He had good friends and most importantly, a perfect boyfriend. When it came to his love life with Mu Tian Heng, Mo Di did not want to have any regrets and nothing else could surpass Mu Tian Heng’s place in his heart.
After Mu Tian Heng had asked several times about his work schedule and if he could go to America with him, he could tell that Mu Tian Heng really wanted to make the trip but did not want to affect his work. But who was Mo Di if not the perfect boyfriend! How could he disappoint such a considerate partner? And so, he had arranged for the week of paid leave to accompany his Mu Tian Heng to America. This could be considered as the first of their honeymoons!
Mo Di was secretly elated thinking about the upcoming days.
After the party, when Mo Di told Mu Tian Heng about the one-week holiday, he was initially surprised but quickly realized why Mo Di had made that decision. Mu Tian Heng’s heart melted. He felt that it was time he made Mo Di his legally.
He had never regarded himself as the jealous type but lately, he had found himself exposed to too many tooth-aching situations that he simply wanted to bind his little one by his side. Not to mention others, this month alone, Mo Di had recruited a whole fresh batch of bright-eyed admirers into his company.
His little one had grown and matured. On top of having a top-notch appearance and personality, he also had talents and a promising career. Every time he was invited to a dinner party, he stirred up a new wave of admirers. Men or women, they would butter up to him in obvious flirtation! Although they were either immediately rejected by Mo Di or secretly ‘dealt with’ by him, Mu Tian Heng still could not help but feel distressed.
Mu Tian Heng hugged Mo Di in his arms and made a quick calculation of the time.
“I’m not busy at the moment and could squeeze out four to five days of leave. Shall we go back to my house in America for a few days?” Mu Tian Heng asked while kissing Mo Di’s ear.
Of course Mo Di readily agreed. He looked up at Mu Tian Heng with a smile but there was a hint of nervousness in his voice, “Brother, are you bringing me home to meet your parents?”
“I do want you to meet my parents and elder sister but the main reason for our trip is to have fun. We’ll spend some time in our home before paying my parents a visit.”
Mu Tian Heng did not reveal his hidden thoughts. He rubbed Mo Di’s cheeks and said with a smile, “You don’t have to be nervous. They’ve seen your picture and all said that you’re the Adonis of the east.”
Mo Di blushed at the praise, “Brother, did you make that up?”
“No, everything I said is true. They also said that your talents exceeded even mine. I did not start my company when I was a freshman but look at you, you’ve become a prominent figure in the Hua Xia gaming industry .”
Mo Di was both smitten and embarrassed. He snickered and buried his head into Mu Tian Heng’s neck. “So we’ll go to our home then visit uncle and aunty?”
“That’s right, we’ll go to our house first.”
Mu Tian Heng thought of something and clasped Mo Di’s waist, “It’s the little villa that you picked. The interior is exactly as you saw it. We can always redecorate the place like what we did for the house we just bought here. What do you think?”
“There’s no need. I quite like it the way it is.” Mu Tian Heng was a little itchy as he felt Mo Di’s breath on his neck but his next sentence shook his heart.
“Actually, somehow, there was a sense of familiarity when I saw that house.”
Mo Di said with a smile, “I feel like I’ve been there in my last life. It felt homely and close. The furnishings look great too, there’s no need to make any changes. Brother, you have to have confidence in your aestheticism…”
Before Mo Di could say anything else, Mu Tian Heng’s arms suddenly tightened around him.
Mo Di turned to look at him. He pressed his nose against Mu Tian Heng’s, “Brother, you scared me.”
Mu Tian Heng hugged Mo Di even harder. He lowered his head and began kissing him. Eventually, Mo Di was kissed until his mind was muddled. By the time Mu Tian Heng had carried him to the bedroom, he had already forgotten what he had wanted to ask him.
Five days later, Mo Di was like an excited kid who went on an outing with his brother for the first time, dragging his luggage and following behind Mu Tian Heng to head to his villa in America.
Even from the outside, Mo Di was really fond of the villa. The flowers in the front garden were particularly large. They clustered together and created a beautiful landscape, full of vitality and warmth.
And Mo Di’s sense of familiarity with the place was getting stronger. It was as though he had once lived here.
“Let’s go in,” Mu Tian Heng pulled Mo Di’s suitcase and said, “This place is usually maintained by a cleaning crew but I’ve sent them away so as not to disturb us for the next few days.”
“Um!” This was exactly what Mo Di wanted. He had never been too fond of having strangers around the house.
As he strolled with Mu Tian Heng into the courtyard, a blue pavilion caught his eyes. He grabbed Mu Tian Heng’s hand and ran towards it. “Brother, this spot is beautiful. When I saw it in the photos, I just wanted to come here to have tea and play chess!”
Mo Di sat on the bench in the pavilion for a while but he did not stay still for long. He turned left to look at the flower garden then turned right to look at the mural on the wall… That scene gradually overlapped with some of Mu Tian Heng’s memories from their past life.
Mu Tian Heng sat and watched Mo Di devotedly with a gentle smile on his face and a slight glow in his eyes.
In fact, Mu Tian Heng did not want to make this place their home. Being here, he couldn’t help but recall the later part of their past lives. To be honest, those memories were too painful for him and at times, it could still make him feel hopelessness and despair.
But he did not expect that when he sent the pictures of his private homes in America to Mo Di, Mo Di had picked this place at first glance.
Since Mo Di liked it, then he would feel the same. Secondly, he also knew that this place meant a lot to them. It did not matter if the memories from the past were too dark, with Mo Di around, he believed he would be able to view them in a brighter light. They would create new memories to drown out the old ones.
Mu Tian Heng stood up and gave the upbeat Mo Di a kiss on the forehead, then to his nose, lips, neck…
The warm sunshine shone on them and the nearby greenery surrounding them in a soothing fragrance.
Mo Di was ticklish due to Mu Tian Heng’s kissing and could no longer suppress his laughter. Finally, he was pressed on the table and given a deep kiss on the mouth which rendered him motionless, relenting to Mu Tian Heng’s passionate advances.
