Chapter 1499: Brother Ke, Have a Drink
Mommy Bai pulled out a chair for Curtis while throwing Bai Qingqing a glance. She whispered, “Hurry up and pour some water for him.”
“Huh? Ah, oh.” Bai Qingqing quickly stood up. She didn’t pay attention and accidentally stepped on the chopsticks. She slid and immediately fell backward.
Curtis instantly embraced her with an intimate and natural att.i.tude, as if he had done so countless times.
However, Bai Qingqing wasn’t so numb to act intimately with him in front of her family. She quickly backed off from his embrace, laughed awkwardly, then ran off to get water.
Mommy Bai said, “This child is always so careless. She can even drop her chopsticks when eating noodles. Last month, she lost her bag and phone too. ”
Curtis smiled faintly and said, “Girls are cuter when they’re a little muddled.”
Mommy Bai felt happy to see her daughter being praised. She smiled even more warmly.
However, Curtis was too young. Mommy Bai still didn’t feel at ease. She tried to ask, “You’re a university student working part-time as a home tutor?”
“That’s right,” Curtis said and took out a small booklet from his briefcase. “This is my student identification.”
Mommy Bai received it and took a look, feeling more a.s.sured.
Bai Qingqing brought water and walked over to Curtis’s side. Her lips twitched as she looked at the student identification.
To think that Curtis had prepared this, too. There was even a photo. How did he get his hands on it?
“You look so handsome. Even your identification photo looks good.” Mommy Bai returned the identification and praised him.
Bai Qingqing handed the water to Curtis, saying half-heartedly, “Have a drink.”
Mommy Bai threw her a sideways glance. “How should you be addressing him? Where are your manners?”
Bai Qingqing’s expression instantly became conflicted. She stuttered for very long before squeezing out the few words with difficulty, “Teacher Ke… have a drink.”
Curtis pursed his lips and held back a smile. He took the gla.s.s from her and said softly, “I’m a student, too. You can just call me brother.”
“Brother… Ke.” Bai Qingqing’s face flushed after these words came out from her mouth. She secretly kicked Curtis a few times in her heart.
Why hadn’t she discovered that Curtis was such a two-faced snake? Please bring back his cold and aloof disposition!
Curtis pretended not to notice her going crazy and looked toward Mommy Bai nonchalantly.
His att.i.tude was naturally amicable when facing his mother-in-law. He talked more than when he was with Bai Qingqing.
“I’m also working part-time as a model and have recently shot a perfume commercial,” Curtis said.
Mommy Bai was struck by a realization. She slapped her thigh and said, “Oh! It’s you! I knew you looked a little familiar but didn’t manage to recall. I don’t use perfume, especially those from luxurious brands. You must be really popular. Even I saw your commercial!”
Knowing that the other party had some fame, Mommy Bai felt even more a.s.sured. However, she felt overwhelmed and also started to have doubts.
“Since your commercial is doing so well, why are you working as a home tutor at our place? Isn’t this a waste of your talent?” Mommy Bai felt doubtful but couldn’t think of anything.
She looked at her daughter. Qingqing looked good, but she appeared mediocre when compared to him. Someone so handsome would definitely not lack beautiful ladies by his side.
Curtis said, “I have my ambitions elsewhere. I won’t take on any more commercials.”
“So that’s how it is. That’s quite a pity. Young people these days like to be famous, so it’s rare to see someone who doesn’t care much for fame.” Mommy Bai started to feel some admiration for Curtis’s character.
Breakfast ended amidst Mommy Bai and Curtis’s chat. Bai Qingqing’s parents were in a rush to go to work and they left their two children at home to the “university student” Ke Di.
With Bai Xiaofan around, Daddy and Mommy Bai weren’t worried that their daughter would be abducted.
