Chapter 1411: Drastic Change in Att.i.tude
Bai Qingqing thought to herself:
. But still, she hurriedly apologized. “Sorry, you should wipe it.”
Bai Qingqing handed her a piece of tissue, but w.a.n.g Jing slapped it off with the back of her hand. Her slim and long fingers pointed at Bai Qingqing’s nose as she said in a shrill voice, “What the h.e.l.l is wrong with you? I just bought these shoes yesterday! You have to compensate me!”
From her peripheral vision, Bai Qingqing saw that one of her dormitory mates had already made it out the door, so she stopped rus.h.i.+ng for time since she had failed to be the first today. Patiently, she said, “They’re only wet. You can just dry them. If you have no shoes to wear, I have a pair of sandals. You can wear them.”
“Who wants your lousy sandals?” w.a.n.g Jing glared at her. Seeing that there was still water in her basin, she reached out to s.n.a.t.c.h it from her, wanting to splash it on Bai Qingqing’s shoes.
Reading her intention, Bai Qingqing hurriedly dodged, and the basin ended up in w.a.n.g Jing’s hands.
A malicious smirk revealed on w.a.n.g Jing’s delicate face. She raised her arms and splashed the water towards Bai Qingqing.
w.a.n.g Jing’s reaction was extremely quick. From the s.n.a.t.c.hing of the basin to the splas.h.i.+ng of water, her actions were swift and fluid. Bai Qingqing had just dodged, when the water came in her direction.
Bai Qingqing actually could avoid the water if she utilized Parker’s powers. But there were too many cla.s.smates coming and going around them. Such a conspicuous action would definitely make her b.u.mp into them. Those who saw it would also find her speed strange.
In this brief moment, Bai Qingqing experienced hesitation and choice. Finally, she chose to accept this splash.
We can call it quits after this, I guess.
In the twinkling of an eye, just as Bai Qingqing tilted her head and prepared to experience a penetrating coolness, to her surprise, a svelte figure suddenly blocked in front of her.
As the splas.h.i.+ng of water sounded, before Bai Qingqing could even take a proper look at the person, she heard w.a.n.g Jing’s gasp.
“Niu! What are you doing? You’re all wet.” w.a.n.g Jing casually tossed the basin aside and quickly wipe w.a.n.g Cuiniu’s face.
“Eh?” Bai Qingqing was even more astonished than w.a.n.g Jing. She cast several looks at w.a.n.g Cuiniu as though she had seen a ghost.
More than half of w.a.n.g Cuiniu’s hair and top was drenched, making her look disheveled and pitiful. Sensing Bai Qingqing sizing her up, she awkwardly turned her head away.
Bai Qingqing caught a fleeting look of humiliation flas.h.i.+ng past her eyes. It was obvious that w.a.n.g Cuiniu still loathed her very much, but it seemed like she didn’t dare to offend her.
As w.a.n.g Jing helped w.a.n.g Cuiniu wipe the water off her face, she kept asking her questions.
w.a.n.g Cuiniu pouted irritably and waved away her hand. “That will do. Let’s go.”
With that, she held w.a.n.g Jing’s hand and ran away.
Tang Li had also washed up by now. She walked to Bai Qingqing’s side and stared at the two figures ahead with an anxious and doubtful expression. She said, “Did w.a.n.g Cuiniu take the wrong medication today?”
Similarly puzzled, Bai Qingqing shrugged. “Who knows. We ought to hurry up, too.”
The two of them ran out.
Actually, since yesterday, Bai Qingqing had indistinctly felt there was something wrong with w.a.n.g Cuiniu’s att.i.tude towards her. She had kept averting her gaze, as though she feared her.
Bai Qingqing wondered if Curtis had taught her a lesson. But that couldn’t be it. She and w.a.n.g Cuiniu hadn’t had any intense encounters. If Curtis were to teach anyone a lesson, it would be Zhang Xin.
Shaking her head, Bai Qingqing couldn’t be bothered to ponder over that anymore. It would be fine so long as it didn’t affect her.
Today’s fourth-period lesson was physical education. Perhaps because the PE teacher liked basketball, he would teach them to play basketball during every PE cla.s.s.
After the basic techniques training, in the remaining half of the cla.s.s, the students were free to play by themselves.
The boys loved playing basketball during the fourth-period cla.s.s in the afternoon because the PE teacher was very easygoing. He would allow them to play a little longer even after the cla.s.s ended so long as the PE rep returned the basketball afterward. As such, they could play for a long time.
