When they were in a street near her school, Bai Qingqing got out of the car and walked towards the school.
By the time she received her results slip, it was already noon. Bai Qingqing declined Tang Li’s invitation to shop together, and the moment she exited the school she gave Winston a call.
“Where are you? I’m out,” said Bai Qingqing.
Winston instantly replied, “I haven’t moved. I’m still there. Do you want me to pick you up?”
“You’ve been waiting all along?” Bai Qingqing’s heart ached, and she jogged in that direction. “Don’t. I’m coming right over.”
“Okay.” There was a smile in Winston’s voice. After she hung up, he lowered his phone and gazed ahead through the glass.
Bai Qingqing quickly ran over. After glancing around and confirming that no one was paying any attention to herself, she pulled open the door and climbed in.
“I’m dead tired.” Bai Qingqing pounced into his embrace the minute she got in.
Winston asked strangely, “Isn’t there class today? Why are you tired?”
Bai Qingqing stroked the back of her waist and said, “My waist aches. Sequelae of getting the intrauterine device.”
Winston reached under her clothes and gently massaged her firm and slender waist. The warmth from his palm slowly and unceasingly transmitted to Bai Qingqing’s body, making her moan in comfort.
Their car was still parked at the original spot. The two men in suits sitting in front gazed down the bridges of their noses, and their hearts which had been calm all these years suddenly stirred.
Damn! Was this gentle and caring man really their Brother Tiger? They had a strong urge to record this scene and share it on their Moments, to let everyone see Brother Tiger’s true colors in private.
Pressed against his mate’s tummy, Winston could clearly sense the slight rumbling within it. He asked, “Hungry?”
“A bit.” Feeling uncomfortable lying in a slanted position, Bai Qingqing went to sit on his lap.
Thankfully, the roof of this car had been made very high so that Winston could sit in comfort, so the top of her head didn’t bump against the roof even as she sat on Winston’s lap.
“What do you want to eat?” asked Winston.
Bai Qingqing thought for a moment, before replying with a grin, “I wanna eat KFC.”
Recalling the kick she got from eating the roasted wings last time, Bai Qingqing started salivating. All the yummy stuff went to her, and the tasteless stuff Winston happened to like eating. This cooperation was awesome.
“Okay,” Winston responded with a smile. He looked up ahead, his face resuming its usual imposingness. “Drive.”
“Yes, Brother Tiger.”
The car immediately started. After going around the school’s congested area, it shortly stopped outside a KFC outlet.
From the entrance, one could see the crowd inside. Winston figured they’d have to queue for a long time, so he didn’t let Bai Qingqing get out of the car and went to buy it alone instead.
Half an hour later, he carried a super large family bucket into the car.
Bai Qingqing said, “Why did you come in? Don’t eat in the car, the smell will linger. Let’s go out.”
Winston said, “There are no seats.”
“Ooh…” Bai Qingqing gazed around. Opposite of KFC was a large square, and in it were many big flowerbeds. Although it was snowing heavily today, the sun was shining brightly. Quite a lot of people were sitting by the flowerbeds.
Bai Qingqing pointed to the square and said, “Let’s go there.”
Winston turned his head and glanced where she was pointing, then placed the family bucket on top of the car. After which he removed his trench coat and wrapped it around Bai Qingqing and carried her out of the car.
It was pretty clean by the flowerbeds. But sitting on it with denim jeans, the iciness pierced into one’s bones, making one feel terrible.
The moment Bai Qingqing sat on it, her legs started shaking, and her body shrunk into the shape of a porcupine.
Winston lifted her and put her on his lap, using his broad chest to block the chilly wind, warming her up instantly.
Bai Qingqing twisted uneasily and glanced around, saying, “This isn’t a good idea, is it?”
