Chapter 1508: Broke Out of the Sh.e.l.ls (1)
“The venom of the wild snakes in your world doesn’t seem mild, either. But with your medical technology being so advanced, whether he lives or dies is hard to say.”
Curtis leaned on the tip of a tree branch and casually snapped a branch that had a green leaf and fiddled with it. In an extremely relaxed tone, as though this didn’t at all concern him, he said, “I very much look forward to the outcome, too.”
“Curtis!” Bai Qingqing scolded softly.
Then, afraid he would be driven to get rid of Zhang Xin completely, she soothed her tone. “Curtis, don’t be rash. No one can come between you and me. Stop this, alright?”
Curtis halted in his actions and his expression became serious. “I’ll remember your words.”
Bai Qingqing lowered her gaze.
“I’ll kill whoever pesters you in the future.” The coldness in his voice caused Bai Qingqing to shudder, and gooseb.u.mps rose all over her body.
After a pause, she nodded. Then, it occurred to her that they were on the phone and Curtis couldn’t see her actions, so she added, “Got it. Nothing of the sort will happen. Don’t worry.”
“Mm. You’ve just given birth, you need to take care of your health. I’ll bring you dinner later.” Satisfied, Curtis’s tone immediately turned gentle, sounding like an entirely different person from a moment ago.
Bai Qingqing’s body relaxed slightly. She covered her hand with a mouth and asked softly, “Is Muir incubating the eggs? Help me feed him some water every day.”
“He won’t die.” After saying that, Curtis hung up without waiting for her to persuade him otherwise.
Bai Qingqing could only call Winston and ask him to take care of Muir.
After the incident with the snakes, Zhang Xin hadn’t appeared again. But this week, before breaking for the weekend, news of Zhang Xin being successfully resuscitated spread in the school. Also, he was preparing to go overseas to continue his studies.
This piece of news came from w.a.n.g Cuiniu. Bai Qingqing didn’t know if she was overthinking things, but she felt like w.a.n.g Cuiniu had deliberately spread the news for her benefit. When Bai Qingqing was asking a cla.s.smate about Zhang Xin, she caught w.a.n.g Cuiniu sneaking a glance at her.
But this news completely put Bai Qingqing’s heart to ease. From now on, she no longer had to endure the burden of Zhang Xin’s feelings towards her, and Zhang Xin was also truly out of danger.
A week later, the three eggs had been successfully incubated, and the day for them to break out of their sh.e.l.ls arrived.
This was a very meaningful day, for baby eagles would view the first person they saw as their parents. No matter what, Bai Qingqing didn’t wish to miss it.
Having applied for leave too many times, she felt that it wouldn’t be easy for her to apply for another leave of absence. Thus, she resorted to inflicting an injury on herself and successfully got out of school.
There was a torn patch on Bai Qingqing’s pants as she walked by the road. The torn patch obviously came from abrasion against the pavement, revealing bloodstained skin within.
After walking for a distance, Bai Qingqing couldn’t persist and took out her phone to call Curtis.
“I’m coming back. Can you come pick me up?” Bai Qingqing said as she leaned against the wall.
Curtis immediately agreed. He retrieved his keys and drove to pick her up.
On the way there, he wondered how his mate had managed to apply for leave. Snow had been saying it was difficult to apply for leave.
Only when he saw Bai Qingqing standing at the roadside did Curtis furiously understand that Snow had injured herself. Moreover, she had intentionally done so!
“Curtis!” Seeing his expression, Bai Qingqing obediently greeted him with a smile and strode towards him with a heroic gait, pretending she was perfectly fine.
However, she had underestimated her own injuries. The moment she exerted strength on her injured leg, she lost her footing and accidentally fell sitting on the ground.
Curtis flashed to her side and lifted her up. Although his actions might appear rough, he was, in fact, extremely gentle.
His red lips pursed into a line, highlighting his rage. Yet, heart aching for her, he said, “How did you end up like this?”
