Chapter 1412: Picking Up Drawing Again (1)
Today was no exception. After the training ended, more than half of the guys in the cla.s.s ran into the court. Under the suns.h.i.+ne, the youths looked energetic and lively. Even the guys who usually looked very ugly appeared somewhat das.h.i.+ng right now.
The girls, on the other hand, liked to sit around and cheer the boys on. Also, a few tomboy-ish girls played basketball on another court.
Honestly speaking, it was rather fascinating watching the boys in their cla.s.s play basketball. In the past, Bai Qingqing had liked sitting by the side to watch too. At the time, she paid particular attention to Zhang Xin, for he was the best at the game, and also the most handsome guy on the court.
The PE teacher enthusiastically acted as the referee. When the whistle sounded, the atmosphere on the basketball court was instantly ignited by a basketball.
Bai Qingqing watched for a while before losing interest. Used to watching male beastmen’s skills, humans’ speed and strength appeared really mediocre to her now.
She walked to a cool corner under the shade, picked up a tree branch, and started drawing on the ground.
Besties tended to stick together. Though Tang Li had been watching the game with relish, she still followed Bai Qingqing to the corner and squatted down.
“Look, Zhang Xin seems particularly valiant today. He’s managed to s.n.a.t.c.h the ball again.” Tang Li gushed with a smitten look.
Bai Qingqing smiled but didn’t even bother to take a glance. She continued drawing.
She quickly sketched the match. In just a few strokes, she outlined the expressions of every player on the court.
When Tang Li lowered her gaze and saw it, she gasped. “My goodness. You draw so well. Have you learned how to draw before?”
Bai Qingqing said, “Haven’t I told you before? I attended a sketching cla.s.s in junior high for three years.”
But that was just theory and knowledge. Her drawing skills were acquired through practice in the past two years.
Tang Li vaguely remembered that, and she nodded and sighed with emotion. “You’re really great at this.”
Bai Qingqing chuckled and said, “I’m not an ambitious person. I’m just going to make a living by drawing in the future.”
Tang Li scoffed in disbelief. “Your results are so good, you can learn whatever you want. I don’t believe you.”
“I’m serious.” Bai Qingqing said with a smile, “Whether you believe it or not, in any case, my results are definitely going to suffer a disastrous decline in the upcoming exam.”
Bai Qingqing then let out a sigh, completely not daring to face up to this week’s monthly exam. With great effort, she could somewhat recall some knowledge, but she definitely wasn’t as skilled in applying that knowledge as before. Especially that stuff that required rote memorization, like English vocabulary, it wasn’t something that simply took a day or two to recall after one forgot about it.
As though something occurred to her, Bai Qingqing lowered her head and chuckled to herself.
In any case, someone would support her. Besides, Muir had already made a large sum of money, and Curtis was also in the midst of developing his career.
She really wasn’t an ambitious person. In the past, she had wanted to be an employee and receive a monthly salary just like her parents. The money that Muir had made, she wouldn’t be able to earn that much even after several lifetimes of working hard.
Hence, now that she had those pillars of support, Bai Qingqing simply gave up entirely and decided to just work on something that interested her, and wait for her mates to support her.
Of course, if her drawings could fetch some money, that would be even better.
For some bizarre reason, Tang Li actually read her thoughts and looked at her in disdain. “I never expected you to be the freeloading sort of person.”
Bai Qingqing, however, said with a look of glee, “That’s not up to you to interfere. I’m a married person, I don’t need to work hard.”
Tang Li instantly rolled her eyes.
The two girls were chatting merrily when a tall and slender youth cast a shadow over their heads.
“Bai Qingqing, can you help me buy a bottle of water?” Zhang Xin came over, huffing and puffing. He wiped the perspiration off his forehead and gave her a sunny smile.
Bai Qingqing subconsciously glanced at the girls in the audience seats. Every one of them would be very willing to help, so it was impossible that Zhang Xin wasn’t able to get someone to buy him water. His behavior was a tad too ambiguous.
