Wang Cuiniu was only sixteen, after all. Nearly reduced to tears, she exclaimed with reddened eyes, “That’s not true!”
Bai Qingqing said nonchalantly, “It doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not. To make it clear to everyone here, I won’t start a relationship with Zhang Xin. You guys really have gotten it wrong.”
Tang Li asked suspiciously, “This isn’t a love letter from him?”
Wang Cuiniu was dumbfounded as well.
Bai Qingqing could never accept Zhang Xin, but she didn’t want him to lose face if word got out. She shook her head. “No.”
Eyes still red, Wang Cuiniu immediately tsked upon hearing that and lay down facing the wall.
Tang Li shot her a death glare, then asked Bai Qingqing, “Then, who gave it to you?”
Bai Qingqing could only tell her a half-truth. “Okay. This was indeed a love letter from someone. But he’s not from our class. You guys don’t know him.”
After she personally denied having any relationship with Zhang Xin, the girls in the dormitory no longer harbored any suspicions towards her and began to despise Wang Cuiniu from the bottom of their hearts.
Tang Li grew even more curious and shook the bed again. She only reluctantly stopped disturbing Bai Qingqing when it was time for lights out.
Bai Qingqing hugged her pillow and slept by the window. Fortunately for her, her bed was nearest to the window. Tang Li had to sit up to see it as she slept in the bottom bunk. But for her, she could see the window while lying down.
Less than five minutes after lights-out, a snake silhouette appeared on the window.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but giggle and mouth: “I’m impressed!”
She didn’t notice any odor coming from Curtis, either. Seems like he didn’t come in through the sewers.
After thinking about it, she realized that the metal gates and fences of the school were indeed insufficient to stop him. She had worried too much.
Curtis only felt relieved after seeing Bai Qingqing. He climbed a small tree that directly faced the window and began to rest.
Although Bai Qingqing was somewhat worried, she was much happier now that she saw him.
There was still no news from Muir, and she didn’t know how much time had passed in the beastmen’s world, or whether Parker and Winston had been promoted or not.
Bai Qingqing brushed her fingers against her tiger and leopard tattoos, then covered her nose and mouth and held her breath as if her life depended on it.
Holding one’s breath was extremely difficult. When falling from the sky, one would experience a moment of fear, and that moment could be used to summon their mate. And that was only possible if one held their breath until they were at the brink of death, so one could die if they weren’t careful.
Bai Qingqing’s chest began to hurt and her mind began to wander. Then, the hand over her nose and mouth was suddenly moved away by an icy hand.
Bai Qingqing heaved while pushing Curtis outside.
“Leave quickly!” She mouthed and quickly glanced back at the others.
Someone noticed that it had become dark and moved, about to look outside.
Curtis quickly patted Bai Qingqing’s head before moving away from the window.
Just when Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief, she heard a gasp from behind her.
“Eh, Bai Qingqing. Did you see anyone outside the window?” Tang Li used her foot to kick the bed plank above her. “I think I saw a person’s shadow.”
Bai Qingqing replied, “No. Maybe it was the caretaker.”
“No. The person had really long hair. Like… a female ghost,” Tang Li said in a panicked voice. “It looked nothing like the caretaker’s straw-like hair. And this is the second floor. How could it be a person when there’s only air outside?”
“Pfft!” Bai Qingqing sputtered with laughter. A female ghost! After coming back to the modern world, her impression of Curtis back in the beastmen’s world was nearly overturned.
First swimming in the sewers, then making all sorts of silly mistakes, and now causing people to think he was a mysterious female ghost. His image!
