Chapter 1451: Unt.i.tled
Only after that person walked some distance away did Winston set her down.
“Who is that person? Why was he secretly taking photos of us?” Bai Qingqing asked Winston worriedly, “Did you offend someone?”
Winston stroked her head and said softly, “It’s nothing. So long as you’re safe, no one can do anything to me.”
Bai Qingqing’s countenance grew dark and she asked sternly, “Who exactly did you offend? Hurry up and tell me.”
Knowing that his actions weren’t considered legal, Winston didn’t wish to worry her, so he explained simply, “There’s a criminal organization in this territory, and I rescued a person from their hands. That’s why they want to deal with me.”
This suited his style, so Bai Qingqing didn’t have any suspicions. She asked worriedly, “What should we do? Are they formidable?”
“Nothing to worry about. Let’s go and buy the cell phones.” Winston changed the subject.
Bai Qingqing could only remind him to be careful and didn’t say anything else.
Now that Winston was alert at all times, he discovered a lot of people with malicious intentions in this alley.
Tall and burly, Winston easily attracted others’ attention, to begin with. Plus, with his silver hair and silver eyes, anyone who had heard of him before would be able to recognize him at first glance.
Winston piggybacked her and said in a low voice, “Don’t raise your head. Don’t let them see your face.”
“Mm,” Bai Qingqing responded obediently.
Those people feigned nonchalance as they followed them. Since they were in broad daylight, it wasn’t convenient for Winston to strike. Hence, he could only keep piggyback Bai Qingqing.
Winston was helpless about that. Just as he was about to carry her home, he b.u.mped into Curtis and Muir.
“Great that you guys are here. Bring Qingqing to buy the cell phones. It’s not convenient for me now,” said Winston.
Curtis swept a glance at the ruffians in the crowd, and a trace of coldness flickered across his eyes. “Do you need my help?”
Winston smiled. “I can manage.”
With that, he turned and left, feeling extremely depressed.
Seems like he couldn’t be together with Qingqing outside during this period of time. He had to expand his influence so that those people wouldn’t dare to offend him! Or else, he would only eliminate the problem at its roots!
After going separate ways, they were still being followed for some distance. Curtis took Bai Qingqing with him, while Winston and Muir took care of the tails, leaving no trace. Only then did Bai Qingqing regain her freedom.
She bought a cell phone for each of her mates. As they were from the same brand and she bought four at one go, she was given a bit of a discount.
Due to Winston’s matter, Bai Qingqing was no longer in the mood to play, so after buying the cell phones she went back home with her mates.
“Is Winston not back yet?” Bai Qingqing looked around for Winston the moment she got home but didn’t see him anywhere.
“He’s not in the house,” Curtis said as he walked to the sofa. After settling down in his usual spot, he started fiddling with his new cell phone.
Muir also studied his cell phone. But because he was illiterate, he could only blindly tap at the pictures.
“You’ve got to learn to read properly, Muir,” Bai Qingqing said after looking at his troubled expression and stifling a laugh.
“I’m learning,” Muir said, feeling embarra.s.sed.
“Parker can’t read, either. I’m really worried about him.” At the thought of the humiliating things Parker might do out there, Bai Qingqing only wanted to rush to him to be his a.s.sistant.
Curtis said in an indifferent tone, “Don’t worry. I’ve explained the situation to that side. They think that Parker is a foreigner and can’t read Chinese, so they’re a.s.signing a helper to him.”
“That’s great.” Bai Qingqing felt much more a.s.sured.
The three of them sat on the sofa, and Bai Qingqing taught them the basic functions of the phone, before heading upstairs to do her homework.
