Chapter 1474: Getting Saved
Winston felt incredibly touched and even more self-reproachful. With a whimper, he transformed into a human, his face still covered with blood.
“It’s my fault. I’ve implicated you.” Winston enveloped her hand within his large palm. He looked towards Curtis and asked, “Where are those people?”
Curtis said coldly, “Dead.”
Winston pounded a fist on the ground, causing the surface to vibrate. “I really want to kill them a second time!”
Bai Qingqing said meekly, “One really isn’t allowed to kill in this world…”
The three males didn’t respond to that. Bai Qingqing looked around and asked, “Parker didn’t come?”
“I called him, but no one answered,” replied Muir.
Bai Qingqing felt a tad disappointed. She had applied for a leave of absence to see him. In the end, she saw everyone else but him.
“He’s probably busy, and it’s not convenient for him to carry a phone. It’s fine.” Though Bai Qingqing said that, the disappointment in her eyes was evident.
Curtis hugged her, and as they approached the roadside, they heard the police siren.
“You guys called the police?” Startled, Bai Qingqing hurriedly gestured for her mates to hide.
All three of them were naked.
Muir lowered his voice and said, “I think it was your cla.s.smate who called the police.”
The color of blood drained from Bai Qingqing’s face.
Drats. Now that the entire school has found out about it, how am I going to face this?
A police dog was running in their direction, and there was no time to hesitate. Bai Qingqing said, “Forget it, you guys transform into your beast forms and hide yourselves. I’ll go back with them first.”
Curtis pecked on her forehead before decisively transforming into a snake and slithering away.
Muir and Winston also transformed into their beast forms and flew and ran away respectively.
The police heard the sounds from the bush, and instantly someone shouted using a loudspeaker: “Who’s where? We’re the police. Please come out immediately.”
“It’s me, it’s me!” Bai Qingqing raised her arms and crawled towards the road, deliberately making the plants in the vicinity shake to disguise the sounds of her mates leaving.
The policemen rushed towards her and pulled Bai Qingqing onto the road.
“Don’t be scared. You’re safe now. Did you get injured?”
This voice was very young, even tender. Also, it sounded kind of familiar.
Bai Qingqing looked up and was so surprised that she let out a gasp. “Zhang Xin? Why are you here?”
Zhang Xin looked very concerned as he led her in the direction of the police car. “I was the one who filed a police report.”
Bai Qingqing was stunned. Since the one who filed a police report was him, how was the school involved in this? Had everyone found out?
Reading her expression, Zhang Xin explained, “The school doesn’t know of your kidnapping yet. My dad works at the public security bureau, and I asked him to look into your case.”
Bai Qingqing: “Hehe…”
Then, I really ought to thank you.
Seeing her look so feeble and her clothes so filthy and disheveled, one couldn’t help but think that she had experienced something bad.
Zhang Xin hesitated to speak. Seeing that Bai Qingqing seemed to care a lot about the school’s att.i.tude, he added, “Don’t worry, this incident won’t spread.”
Regardless, he was helping out of kind intentions, so Bai Qingqing still thanked him sincerely, “Thank you.”
Zhang Xin didn’t ask. However, the police had to conduct their routine questioning.
Recalling the corpses strewn all over the ground, Bai Qingqing nervously stuttered, “I… I don’t know anything. I ran off the moment I got out of the car.”
Zhang Xin heaved a big sigh of relief. “I’m glad that you’re fine. I’d thought…”
“Thought what?” Even in such a situation, Bai Qingqing was very calm facing the young Zhang Xin. She narrowed her eyes at him.
“Thought you were… you-know-what.” As he spoke, Zhang Xin’s face also turned red. He immediately explained, “You can’t blame me. I mean, you look so… so… so frail and defenseless.”
An expressionless Bai Qingqing replied, “It’s just motion sickness.”
Plus fainted from soaking in a hot spring for too long, that’s all.
Zhang Xin: “…”
