Chapter 1448: Winston’s Day Alone With Bai Qingqing
After hurriedly finis.h.i.+ng his “work”, Winston rushed back home and took a cold shower to wash off the filth, before entering his spouse’s room.
Perhaps because they hadn’t slept together for a long time, Curtis, Muir, and Parker lay very close to Bai Qingqing, sleeping rather soundly.
Hearing the footsteps, Curtis cast a glance at him before closing his eyes again.
Winston searched for quite a while before deciding on a spot closest to his mate, then laid down to sleep.
On the next day, when the first rays of suns.h.i.+ne slipped into the window, Parker, Muir, and Winston all woke up. Curtis was also awoken by the piercing sunlight and opened his eyes.
Always sleep-deprived in school, Bai Qingqing continued sleeping soundly. Parker drew the curtains and the bedroom sank back into darkness.
Curtis picked up her phone and shot the others a look, and by quiet consensus, everyone followed him out of the bedroom.
“Snow has taken a look at the contract, too. I’ll go over and verify it. If there are no problems, we can just sign it. Let Snow rest a bit longer. It’s rare for her to have two days off.” Curtis looked at Muir and Parker and said, “The two of you have got to go over with me. Winston, you stay at home and protect Snow.”
Winston’s heart stirred. Suppressing his joy, he replied, “Okay.”
Parker inhaled deeply and said, “After signing the contract, I’ll be a gainfully employed person.”
Curtis thought to himself:
After signing the contract, there will be one less idiot vying for Snow’s attention with me. Have fun working outside.
The three of them went out of the house amid the morning sun, while Winston went back to the bedroom and wrapped his body around Bai Qingqing as much as possible. Indeed, he felt most grounded hugging her like this.
Winston let out a satisfied sigh and drifted off to sleep once more.
They slept all the way to ten o’clock before Bai Qingqing finally woke up.
When she opened her eyes and saw the unfamiliar pitch-black room, Bai Qingqing blinked her eyes dazedly. Because she could sense that the person hugging her was Winston, she wasn’t at all afraid.
She reached to her side and woke him up.
Winston pulled Bai Qingqing into his arms and spoke with a voice still raspy from having just woken, sounding particularly s.e.xy. “You’re awake?”
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing rubbed her eyes. “Where’s my phone? What time is it now?”
Winston said, “It’s still early. Are you hungry? I’ll go make you something to eat.”
“I’m not hungry. Where are the others?” Bai Qingqing yawned. She wanted to wake up but was too lazy to move, so she flipped around and lay on him.
Winston smiled and got up with her in his arms. “They went to sign the contract. Curtis took your phone with him.”
Bai Qingqing instantly snapped awake. Arms circled around his neck, she asked worriedly, “When did they leave? Why didn’t you guys wake me up?”
“It’s been a while.” As he spoke, Winston opened the bathroom door. The bathroom was very s.p.a.cious. There was a shower, a sink, and also a ventilated little balcony.
Seeing the skies from the balcony, Winston added, “Going by the unit of time in this world, they’ve been gone for about four hours… Strange, they ought to be back by now.”
Judging by the sun’s position, it appeared to be still quite early. How early would four hours ago have to be?
The corners of Bai Qingqing’s lips twitched as she said, “Who goes to work that early? I think they probably only just met Xu Qiyang now.”
Winston kept quiet.
He set her down and helped her squeeze the toothpaste. The lazy b.u.m in Bai Qingqing finally got suppressed. She took the toothbrush from him and quickly started brus.h.i.+ng her teeth.
“Winston, you should brush your teeth too. You guys rarely get to transform these days, so food gets stuck in your teeth,” said Bai Qingqing.
Winston licked his teeth and indeed felt that it was a bit unclean (goes to show the tattoo guy was right about the smell). He picked up a toothbrush and, mimicking his mate, started brus.h.i.+ng his teeth as well.
