Chapter 1505: Smash the Egg
Bai Qingqing could sense Zhang Xin’s aversion towards her. Though she felt baffled, she didn’t wish to understand. She lowered her head to send Curtis a text.
[Bring a cotton cloth over at noon. I’ve given birth to the egg.]
After sending that text message, Bai Qingqing stared at her phone. When the bell rang, the next moment her cell phone also started ringing.
Bai Qingqing quickly declined the call and sent a text message. [It’s not convenient for me to take a call now. Text.]
It was silent for a while before that side finally replied with a text message. [Wait for me in the cla.s.sroom at noon. I’ll go in to find you.]
Even though it was just a few simple written words, Bai Qingqing could sense the deep caring intent behind them. She sent a final text message: [No need, I’m fine. See you at our usual place.]
After that, Bai Qingqing kept her phone away in her drawer and paid attention to cla.s.s.
When the fourth period came, Bai Qingqing borrowed a black plastic bag from a cla.s.smate and wrapped the egg in it before going downstairs. She rushed straight behind the cla.s.sroom building and indeed saw a slim and long human figure there.
“Curtis, I’m here!” Bai Qingqing whispered.
Curtis jumped down from a height of three stories and ran to her side, a hint of rage in his voice. He lifted her horizontally and jumped out of the school.
“Eh, Curtis?” Bai Qingqing fl.u.s.teredly turned her head to look at the school wall. “This is playing truant. If I get caught, I’ll be done for.”
“So you’re going to ignore your health?” Curtis’s rage intensified when he saw the egg in her arms. He s.n.a.t.c.hed it from her and a.s.sumed a posture of smas.h.i.+ng it.
“You dare!” Bai Qingqing was so frightened that the hairs on her body all stood up, and her pitch rose involuntarily.
Curtis’s hand halted mid-air, his expression terrifyingly dark. He gazed quietly at her for a while, before lowering his hand.
Bai Qingqing’s body relaxed in relief and she quickly s.n.a.t.c.hed the egg back from him, saying gently, “I’m fine. I remain seated all the time during cla.s.s and don’t have to move much. There’s no PE lesson today, it won’t be tiring.”
Curtis carried her to a derelict architecture not exposed to the wind and set her down on the floor. He said, “Eat up.”
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to anger him and ate as told. “Where’s Muir? Does he know about it yet?”
“I’ll tell him when I get back,” said Curtis.
“This egg should be the last one. Muir needs to incubate the eggs, right? I vaguely remember there’s such a thing as an incubator. Do you want to tell him about it? Incubating eggs is quite a tedious task. Perhaps this will make things easier for him.”
Now that the rage had been suppressed, all that was left was heartache. Curtis stroked the top of her soft and warm head and said, “It’s so hard on you, why should you make things easier for him? I won’t tell him.”
“I can call him,” Bai Qingqing said with a grin.
Curtis’s countenance looked like it was about to turn dark again.
While eating, Bai Qingqing looked up incubators on taobao, before calling Muir.
But he refused without thinking twice. This caused Curtis’s countenance to gradually ease up.
After she finished eating, Curtis sent her back into the school over the wall. Bai Qingqing had just turned a corner when she b.u.mped into Zhang Xin at the empty entrance of their cla.s.sroom building.
He was leaning against the wall with his arms crossed. Upon hearing her footsteps, he said coldly without even turning his head, “You’re back?”
Bai Qingqing was startled. “You… you haven’t been following me, have you?”
Had he seen Curtis? Probably not, or else Curtis would long have discovered him.
At this thought, Bai Qingqing’s heart was put to ease. She calmly walked to him and said, “I merely went out for a walk. You haven’t eaten lunch? There’s still 15 minutes left. Hurry up and go get yourself something to eat.”
