Chapter 1529: A Day Alone With Winston
Mommy Bai was very surprised to see Curtis. She asked Bai Qingqing, “Hasn’t he gone back? Why is he sleeping here?”
Coming out with the porridge pot, Bai Qingqing said, amused, “He came back again. He slept outside our door. I let him in after the old grandpa upstairs rang our doorbell.”
“I didn’t expect him to really be drunk. He seemed pretty normal. Geez, why did his girlfriend not come up to take a look? Curtis’s wearing so little. How cold must he have felt?” Mommy Bai walked to the sofa as she spoke. Placing a hand upon Curtis’s forehead, her brows creased.
“So cold. Could he have fallen ill from the cold?” Mommy Bai asked worriedly.
Hearing Mommy Bai’s words of concern, Curtis felt a subtle feeling.
Being mother and daughter, Mommy Bai and Bai Qingqing were quite similar in many ways. Curtis suddenly felt that he shouldn’t get too intimate with his mate’s mother.
Although she had grown old, in terms of real age, Curtis was actually a few years older than her. In Curtis’s eyes, Mommy Bai was more like a little sister.
Bai Qingqing said, “You guys should eat your breakfast first. If he feels unwell later, I’ll send him to the hospital.”
“Alright, then keep a watch over him. Don’t let it drag into a major illness,” said Mommy Bai.
“Mm, got it,” replied Bai Qingqing.
After the two adults went out, Bai Qingqing relaxed. Curtis also finally became completely sober from all that disturbance.
Looking at him, the fearful Bai Xiaofan asked warily, “There’s no lesson today, is there?”
He didn’t believe that Teacher Ke was tutoring him because of the tuition fees. It was all because of his older sister. Hence, even if his parents didn’t ask Teacher Ke to continue teaching, he couldn’t feel at ease.
Curtis said, “Go ahead and play. No lessons for the time being.”
Bai Xiaofan instantly beamed. However, Curtis’s next sentence made him fall from the clouds to the ground.
“I’ll give you a three days’ break. Lessons will resume on Sat.u.r.day and Sunday,” Curtis said with nary a smile, resuming his usual aloofness.
Bai Xiaofan’s face collapsed. “Lessons again? What’s there to teach?”
“Winter holiday a.s.signments,” replied Curtis.
Bai Xiaofan let out a long exhale of relief. “Thank G.o.d. What a false alarm.”
In an open and aboveboard manner, Curtis stayed at the Bai residence and accompanied Bai Qingqing for the entire day, only leaving right before Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai knocked off from work. After which, he rushed to the construction site at night.
In the blink of an eye, the day for Bai Qingqing to receive her results slip arrived. It was also snowing heavily today, with countless shoe imprints on the ground covered with a thin layer of snow. It was dirty everywhere.
Clad in a loose and big cream-colored down jacket, Bai Qingqing resembled a polar bear as she walked on the road.
After exiting the district, the door to a black car instantly opened, and out from it walked Winston.
“Quickly get in.” Winston briskly strode toward Bai Qingqing, removed his black trenchcoat, and draped it over her.
After escorting his mate into the car, Winston said without raising his head, “To the No. 1 Middle School.”
“Yes, Brother Tiger.”
The chauffeur in the suit instantly started the car. In the front pa.s.senger seat sat a man who was similarly dressed. As she was getting into the car, Bai Qingqing vaguely saw one of them with a gun at his waist.
Winston held Bai Qingqing’s hands which had turned red from the freezing cold, and the corners of his lips subconsciously curled up. Evidently, he was in a splendid mood.
Qingqing had said that she would spend the entire day with him alone.
Bai Qingqing leaned against Winston, and, after her hands had turned completely warm, she feigned curiosity and drew out the gun at Winston’s waist.
The two men in suits in front instantly tensed up and cast a questioning look at him.
Indulgent of Bai Qingqing, Winston merely said, “Careful not to misfire. Don’t point the muzzle at yourself.”
