Chapter 1516: Winter Break (2)
“Someone who works with me,” Winston replied simply.
Bai Qingqing nodded and then smiled at Lanky. Winston grabbed her hand again and stuffed it into his warm pocket.
“I’ll be going home later. I’ll go back after sending the little eagles back to the villa,” Bai Qingqing said.
Winston fell silent for a while, pulling her into his embrace. His low voice sounded a little unhappy. “Alright.”
Bai Qingqing raised her head and kissed him on the chin. “I’ll be coming to collect my result slip tomorrow. I’ll be able to leave after taking it. We can have a good time for the whole day.”
No matter how harsh Winston’s features were, it couldn’t hide his joy at this moment.
“I wonder how Parker is doing. Let me call him and ask.” As Bai Qingqing said this, she took out her phone and called Parker.
The call quickly got through, and Parker spoke up, “You’re on your winter break now?”
“En.” Bai Qingqing smiled and nodded.
“My filming here at Hengdian will be ending soon. I’ll be back in a few days. I’ll only need to start work again after the new year, about the same as your winter break.” Parker’s voice was jolting, and Bai Qingqing could imagine the way he jumped up and down excitedly.
“That’s great. We can spend the new year together,” Bai Qingqing said.
“En!” Parker replied firmly.
After hanging up, Bai Qingqing then called Curtis.
Curtis was still rus.h.i.+ng his work day and night over at his side. All sorts of piercing noises came from his end, and his voice was like a stream of clear spring water as it entered Bai Qingqing’s ears. “Your break has started?”
“En,” Bai Qingqing replied. When talking to him, she unconsciously became a little more docile and asked in a gentle voice, “You’re still busy?”
“I’ll go back after making arrangements for the work for these few days. I’ll go back home at around midnight tonight.”
“En. The roads are congested these few days. Be safe on the road,” Bai Qingqing said.
Curtis smiled. He didn’t laugh out loud, but the air he exhaled revealed his smile.
Bai Qingqing immediately thought of how he had a strong liking for pa.s.sageways—underground sewage. She instantly b.u.mped her head against Winston’s chest. That road was likely to never be congested with cars.
As they chatted, the car had already entered Splendid Villa. Bai Qingqing hung up unwillingly, then led the little eagles into the house.
“Muir! We’re back!” Bai Qingqing called out loudly. She greeted the two leopards in the courtyard and then ran into the living room happily.
Muir had seen them long ago from upstairs, and he jumped down from the second floor, hugging her.
When Lanky saw this scene, his heart immediately skipped a beat.
Wasn’t this student Brother Tiger’s woman? How could she dare to enter another man’s embrace in front of Brother Tiger? Wouldn’t Brother Tiger kill her?
No, no, no, that was impossible. That man should be her elder brother or father. He couldn’t be her lover. He didn’t believe that there was anyone who would dare to fight with Brother Tiger for a woman.
He was feeling shocked, but Brother Tiger threw him an unkind glance. Lanky immediately understood that he had committed one of Brother Tiger’s taboos. He was about to avert his gaze when the courtyard’s door blocked his vision.
Winston closed the door, thinking to himself that he should learn to drive too. He mustn’t let outsiders see too much of their family’s abnormalities.
Lanky was the aide he relied on the most. Unless he was left with no choice, he didn’t wish to silence him.
Winston walked up to the car and said to Lanky, “The gang needs your help. You can go back. Just call anyone who can drive here.”
Brother Tiger hated to have other people doubting him unless there was a reasonable explanation to do so. Lanky immediately said, “Alright.”
After saying that, he got out of the car and walked away.
