Chapter 1413: Picking Up Drawing Again (2)
After hesitating for a short moment, Bai Qingqing agreed. She received Zhang Xin’s card and pulled Tang Li together with her.
Tang Li was very surprised. “Why are you helping him?”
Bai Qingqing grinned sneakily and said, “I’m not doing this to help him. Hurry up and go to the shop to buy water. I’ll make a trip to the cla.s.sroom. We’ll return to the field together later.”
Tang Li was struck by a realization. “No wonder.”
The two of them split up at the cla.s.sroom building’s entrance. Bai Qingqing dashed straight for the cla.s.sroom at a speed that could be used for a 100-meter dash, picked up the sketchbook and 2b pencil she had bought last week, then came out.
Tang Li was done buying the cold mineral water, but she had bought three bottles of them. Bai Qingqing glared at her when she saw this. “You used his card?”
Tang Li was already drinking. She said, “Take it as an errand fee. Don’t worry, he’s so rich that he definitely won’t mind.”
Bai Qingqing poked her forehead and said in disdain, “You’re really thick-skinned.”
Zhang Xin would occasionally glance in the direction of the shop from the basketball court. When he saw that Bai Qingqing had come back, he came running over when there was a break.
“Thank you.” Zhang Xin took the water happily from Tang Li’s hand but thanked her instead. This made Bai Qingqing and Tang Li feel a little awkward.
When Zhang Xin saw the sketchbook Bai Qingqing was holding, he immediately understood that she had agreed to help him to have an excuse to return to the cla.s.sroom. He instantly felt a little disappointed.
“Cough, we used your card to buy two bottles of water for ourselves too. You don’t mind, do you?” Before Bai Qingqing could say “I can return the money”, Zhang Xin immediately smiled even more brightly.
“I don’t mind. I feel very happy. I’ll leave my card with you for now. Feel free to use it as you wish.”
After saying that, he ran off with the mineral water.
“Hey!” Bai Qingqing tried to chase after him, but after seeing Zhang Xin returning to the court, she stopped helplessly.
Tang Li walked up behind her and asked in a soft voice, “What should we do?”
Bai Qingqing put the card into her pocket and said, “What else can we do? I’ll return it to him later. Anyway, there’s something I need to look for him for. It’s fine.”
Tang Li didn’t feel troubled anymore and urged her to draw.
The time spent on drawing pa.s.sed by very quickly, and unknowingly, it was time for the lesson to end. All the students dashed toward the canteen rapidly, with some boys shouting “charge!”
Bai Qingqing looked at the guys who were still playing basketball, then said to Tang Li, “You can go eat first. There’s no need to wait for me.”
“Then, I’ll make a move first.” Tang Li knew that she had someone to bring her food and thus ran off. Her chubby body also moved rapidly. Those who didn’t know (for example, beastmen) might think that there was some kind of treasure at the canteen.
Bai Qingqing reckoned that they’d be continuing for at least half an hour and thus continued with her drawing.
At the very end, Zhang Xin did a slam dunk and then glanced over in her direction, putting up a “stop” gesture.
The guys greeted each other and then went off. Zhang Xin wiped his sweat and jogged over to Bai Qingqing’s side while carrying the basketball.
“You’re waiting for me?” Zhang Xin asked with feigned ignorance.
Bai Qingqing looked up and threw a glance at him, asking, “What do you think?”
Zhang Xin grinned and couldn’t help but say, “You’re really cute.”
Bai Qingqing’s expression tensed up and she looked at him solemnly. Faced against her solemn face, Zhang Xin stopped smiling.
“What’s the matter?” Zhang Xin asked.
Bai Qingqing looked in the direction of the canteen. All the stalls had long queues, and w.a.n.g Cuiniu was walking slowly on the track by herself, looking dispirited.
Zhang Xin followed the direction of her gaze. His expression changed, but it returned to normal very quickly and he asked, looking baffled, “What’s the matter?”
