Chapter 1321: Applying for a Job
It was just a meal. It didn’t have much influence if he were to eat or not. Moreover, he disliked the food here. He only couldn’t bear to not eat the food considering how his mate had used up precious money in exchange for it.
When the two of them left, the waiters’ gazes weren’t friendly when looking at them. It seemed that their brutality had been spread out in the shop.
Bai Qingqing rubbed her nose and quickened her footsteps.
After leaving the restaurant, she stuck out her tongue playfully and said, smiling, “We won’t go back to that place in the future.”
Looking at how Bai Qingqing was acting, Curtis felt that life right now was very interesting. He was about to say something when someone suddenly reached from behind into the tote bag he was holding.
The red packet was placed in an obvious spot in the tote bag, and judging from the bulge, there were clearly a few notes inside it. Even an ordinary person would take a few more looks, let alone a pickpocket.
Curtis’s speed was faster than that hand. Before it reached into the bag, Curtis had already grabbed onto that wrist tightly.
An agonizing cry suddenly rang out. Bai Qingqing was given a scare and jumped up. When she turned and saw someone behind her, she was given another shock.
Seeing that Curtis was grabbing onto the person, she immediately spoke up before making sense of the situation. “Curtis, let him go!”
Curtis stopped his action. The person drew back his wrist, which had an indentation left on it, looking at Curtis with horror.
His wrist bones hurt a lot. He even suspected that if the girl hadn’t stopped this guy, his hand would be broken off from the brute force.
What kind of grip was that? Even in the movies, there wasn’t such a strong main character! Was he dreaming?
Many people looked over, and Bai Qingqing finally sorted out her thoughts. She held the red packet in her hand and stared warily at the skinny and tall pickpocket, saying, “You’re stealing?”
Only then did the pickpocket come back to his senses, refusing to admit to it and reb.u.t.ting, “Who-who’s stealing? Don’t spout nonsense!”
After saying that, the pickpocket turned to run off. Neither Bai Qingqing nor the surrounding spectators believed him.
Bai Qingqing placed the red packet into her pant’s pocket, still lingering with fear. She couldn’t be bothered to call the police and pouted, saying, “Thank goodness for your quick reaction. Otherwise, we’d be in trouble.”
Curtis asked, “This is how one gets money?”
Bai Qingqing was stunned for a moment. After she realized what he was saying, she gasped and immediately said, “Of course not! That’s illegal! You must never do that!”
Curtis revealed a baffled expression, then asked, “What if I take it openly?”
Bai Qingqing was even more horrified. “That’s even worse. That’s robbery. The crime is greater.”
As a beastman who would take the life of another easily, Curtis was speechless toward human rules.
“Then, where does money come from?” Curtis then recalled how Snow had given money to the restaurant earlier and asked, “Where did that food come from? It should be fine if I catch other species as prey, right?”
Bai Qingqing smiled. “There’s no need to be so troublesome. One can earn money with a job.”
Recalling what others were speculating about Curtis when they had gone out earlier, Bai Qingqing’s eyes gleamed. She backed off a few steps and a.s.sessed him. “Why don’t you apply to be a model? It should be a job that can bring in a lot of money.”
Hearing the words “bring in a lot of money”, Curtis made the decision and said firmly, “Alright! I’ll go be a moder.”
But what was a moder?
“It’s model. Take note of the p.r.o.nunciation for the last syllable.” Bai Qingqing corrected him. She had just mentioned it in pa.s.sing, but after seeing Curtis’s firm att.i.tude, she started putting more serious thought into this.
“Alright, then. Let’s go to a cyber cafe to search for information.”
