Chapter 1479: Confessing Her Ambition
At the road junction, Bai Qingqing lowered her voice and said, “Don’t turn the corner. Send me home.”
Curtis paused imperceptibly. “Your parents are looking for you?”
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing’s body fell limp as she said vexedly, “My parents found out I lied about a family emergency to apply for leave from school last time. My teacher also informed them that my results have drastically gone down. They forbid me from taking a part-time job.”
The car continued moving steadily and quietly on the road. In the car, Curtis was also terrifyingly quiet.
After a long time, Curtis spat out a few syllables. “So you’re going to have to go home from now onwards?”
“… Mm.” After she replied, she immediately felt the car wasn’t steady, so she hurriedly added, “I’ll try to convince them as soon as possible, to let me continue to come out!”
“How are you planning on doing that?” asked Curtis.
Bai Qingqing said, “They’re signing me up for tuition cla.s.ses. When the time comes, I’ll have time to come out to see you guys.”
Curtis heaved a sigh of relief and said, “I’m not free tomorrow. Give me a week’s time. I’ll give you tuition next week.”
Bai Qingqing’s expression cracked. With a stiff neck, she turned her head and looked at him. “Surely you’re not thinking of… giving me tuition after you self-learn the Senior High knowledge?”
“Mm.” Curtis gave her a calm and affirmative reply, completely oblivious to how heaven-defying his words sounded.
Bai Qingqing gulped her saliva and felt that she would perhaps never get used to her spouses’ settings.
She called all three of her mates and told them Curtis’s plan before they accepted the reality.
Bai Qingqing returned home comfortably in the car.
Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai had also just gotten off work. Seeing the luxurious car leave their residential area, they even cast a few more glances at it.
“Since when is there such an expensive car in our area?” Mommy Bai asked strangely.
Daddy Bai didn’t think much of it. “What’s there to be surprised about? Real rich people all like to keep a low profile.”
In the end, when they turned the corner, they saw their daughter.
Daddy Bai slowed down his car and rolled down the car window. “Why are you so fast today?”
Bai Qingqing panicked and subconsciously glanced backward. Surely her parents hadn’t seen her getting out of Curtis’s car?
It was exactly because she had been afraid her parents might see her, that she alighted mid-way. She had asked Curtis to let her get out earlier. Great.
“There was no traffic jam today,” Bai Qingqing replied, on tenterhooks.
Fortunately, Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai stopped asking her any questions. Since they were almost home, they didn’t stop the car and directly drove away.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief and hugged her school bag as she ran home.
Knowing she would definitely be lectured, Bai Qingqing felt scared. The minute she got home, she went to take a shower and kept herself busy, trying as much as possible to minimize the duration of the scolding.
The effect of her actions was obvious—It was only during dinner that she was called out and given a good scolding.
Bai Qingqing was harshly reprimanded. Unfortunately, she was super hungry. She could have found an opportunity to escape after Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai finished eating, but because she wanted to eat, she could only sit there obediently and endure the scolding.
After finally finis.h.i.+ng this arduous dinner, Mommy Bai was also more or less done disparaging her. Finally, she said, “You’ve fallen to ranking number 1000+… did you get amnesia? I don’t have to work tomorrow, so I’ll take you to look for a tuition cla.s.s.”
With her head bowed, Bai Qingqing said, “I just couldn’t recall. How much do tuition lessons cost? Is it very expensive?”
Mommy Bai said, “You don’t have to worry about the money. By focusing on learning, you’ll be doing Mommy a great favor.”
“Actually…” Bai Qingqing looked up and said seriously, “Mom, I want to learn drawing. The cutoff scores for art schools should be a lot lower.”
