The Studious Goddess Is Not To Be Provoked - Chapter 39

After washing up, Xia Wei’an took her books with her and went to the study room to do her homework. After being reborn, she realized that her memory had improved, and she could remember the things that were taught after reading them just twice or thrice. That advantage helped her save a lot of time.
When she felt some soreness in her eyes, she looked at the time and realized that it was already two o’clock. ‘Why hasn’t Di Xingchen returned yet?’
‘That fool isn’t deliberately trying to hide from me, right?’ She looked in front and saw the full moon hanging in the night sky and emitting white light like a jade disc.
Others often say that people reunite when the moon is full. However, the thought of her staying alone there with no one to consult for math, she couldn’t help but find it miserable. Thinking of the fact that Di Xingchen’s absence was the reason for it, she couldn’t help but be full of resentment!
Hence, she furiously fumbled in her pocket for her cellphone and dialed his number.
However… no one picked up!
As such, she called again and again, but he only picked up when she called the fifth time.
Di Xingchen’s voice was warm and gentle, setting a unique mood.
Xia Wei’an was initially furious and was thinking about how she should scold him when the call got through, but now that it was connected, her voice turned soft and feeble. Sounding slightly aggrieved, she said, “Why aren’t you home?”
“I suddenly had something that I had to go abroad for. I thought that it was too late and you might have already gone to bed, so I didn’t call to inform you.”
“You could have texted me, I can’t get used to you not being around!”
Xia Wei’an herself was almost sickened by the coquettish way she was acting.
“I’ll be back in a few days, it’s getting late, go to sleep, be good.”
Di Xingchen’s speech was slow, and he seemed to be holding his breath, as if he was suffering immense misery.
Xia Wei’an furrowed her eyebrows and asked, “Where are you now? Are you sick?”
“No, don’t worry about me, I’m going to board my flight soon. Goodnight, Wei’an.”
He hung up directly, and all that was left was the beeping coming from the phone.
The more he acted that way, the more worried Xia Wei’an was. Thinking that since he was on a business trip, Assistant Ji would definitely be with him, so she quickly looked for his number and dialed it.
The call was connected after it rang twice.
“Hello, Assistant Ji, I’m Xia Wei’an. Mr. Di with you, isn’t he? I called him just now and something doesn’t seem right. Where are you guys now?”
Xia Wei’an was flustered, and she started sputtering as soon as the call was connected.
After patiently waiting for her to finish, Assistant Ji answered, “Don’t worry, Young Mistress, we’re going abroad for a business trip and we’re boarding the plane now. Mr. Di should be feeling unwell because he drank too much during the entertainment just now. He’s already taken some hangover medicine.”
After listening to Assistant Ji’s words, Xia Wei’an was finally relieved and instructed him to take good care of Di Xingchen before hanging up the phone.
On the other end, Assistant Ji was in the presidential suite of the Di Corporation hotel. There were more than ten quilts on the bed, but the person lying on it was still shivering and sweating profusely.
“Mr. Di, please bear with it, Dr. Xu is about to be here soon.”
Assistant Ji tried to comfort him with a frown. Whenever it was a night with a full moon, Di Xingchen would have a blue drug relapse that would last for about one or two hours at a time. It had already been three hours, but there were still no signs of improvement, not even the slightest. Hence, Assistant Ji called over Dr. Xu as a last resort.
