Chapter 1522: Treat Curtis to a Meal
Curtis’s heart ached, and he said to Winston, “Hurry up and carry her into the car.”
Winston didn’t delay at all and quickly walked over to the car, placing Bai Qingqing inside.
The underling was also standing outside, waiting. When Winston looked at him, his smile immediately turned fawning.
“You can go back now. Thank you for today,” Winston said in a deep voice. When facing his subordinate, he turned back to the influential and reticent guy.
“It’s something I should do, it’s something I should do. Brother Tiger, please take care on the way back,” the underling said while nodding and bowing. Only after the car went far away did he mount his motorbike and leave.
Winston carried Bai Qingqing, letting her lay on his legs. His hot palm stroked her abdomen gently through the layer of clothes, making her feel comfortable like a sluggish cat.
Curtis took a look at Bai Qingqing from the rear-view mirror, then said, “I’ve checked. There’ll be signs of bleeding after the surgery. Don’t be scared. We’ll head back to the Splendid Villa first. You can rest at home for half a day before going back to your parents’ home.”
“Alright, I’ll do as you say.” Bai Qingqing’s pair of small hands darted under Winston’s clothes, wanting to see his reaction when he felt cold. However, she was disappointed. Winston looked as if nothing had happened. He even pressed onto her hand, letting it stick closer to him.
“You male beastmen’s bodies make no sense at all. If only I had a body that isn’t afraid of the cold.” As Bai Qingqing said this, she suddenly thought of something and giggled. “If there’s a next life, I’ll reincarnate in the beastmen world and become a male beastman with a strong body!”
Winston’s expression instantly changed. He instantly felt a chill when imagining that the person in his arms was a strong male.
However, it was impossible to get him to give up too.
“That’s not good!” Winston could only object with a firm att.i.tude.
Bai Qingqing smiled even more happily until her stomach hurt. Only then did she force herself to stop.
Curtis couldn’t hold back his smile, either. Under the light-hearted and joyful atmosphere, the car drove back to the Splendid Villa.
Bai Qingqing lay on the bed to rest. When it was almost 5:00 PM, Mommy Bai called.
“Qingqing, where did you run off to again? Hurry up and come back! Ke Di is going to come over for dinner. Don’t be late!” Mommy Bai’s voice rang out from her phone.
Bai Qingqing lay in the warm bed sluggishly, feeling reluctant to move. She took a look at Curtis, who was next to her and reading up on some materials, then forcibly got her act together, saying, “Alright, I’ll come back right away.”
After hanging up her mother’s call, Bai Qingqing looked toward Curtis. Before she said anything, he spoke up first, “Let’s go.”
As he said this, he put down the phone, picked up the clothes that were warming up at the foot of the bed, then walked over to her side.
Bai Qingqing had always been sluggish during Winter. After Curtis helped her to put on her clothes, she was still too lazy to sit up by herself. In the end, it was Curtis who had carried her to the car.
When they arrived home, Mommy Bai wasn’t back yet. Another half an hour pa.s.sed before Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai came home with bags of ingredients.
Mommy Bai smiled when she saw Curtis. She put down the groceries and walked over, saying, “Little Ke came so early? Oh my, I haven’t cooked yet. You’ll have to wait for quite a long time.”
Curtis also walked toward her, smiling as he said, “I feel that I arrived at a good time. What dishes are you planning to cook? I’ll help.”
Mommy Bai asked in surprise, “You can cook?”
“I can.” Curtis seemed to throw an unconscious glance at Bai Qingqing, who was seated on the sofa and watching television programs, before he continued, “I cook for my wife.”
Biting on an apple, Bai Qingqing quietly sank lower on the sofa.
Mommy Bai felt even more surprised and asked, “Little Ke is already married? But given how outstanding you are, you must often be wooed by girls. It’s normal for you to marry early.”
