Beauty and the Beasts - Chapter 1498
Chapter 1498: Teacher Ke Arrives
After lunch, Bai Qingqing told her parents about taking leave from school so that she wouldn’t have to go back to school. She then let Curtis send her home.
Of course, she played down on her physical discomfort, only saying that she wasn’t feeling well and that she’d be fine after some rest. As there were no classes, she wanted to stay at home.
Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai didn’t suspect anything. As long as their daughter was home and wasn’t up to any atrocious behavior outside, they’d be a lot more assured.
What they didn’t know was how lively it was at home when they were out for work.
After Bai Qingqing rested for two days, she laid her second egg in the toilet. She had the feeling that there was still one more in her stomach.
It was already Saturday and Bai Xiaofan came back home from school, too.
Mommy Bai felt that Bai Qingqing had nothing to do at home, so she might as well sign her up for tuition class earlier. However, tuition classes only started during the school holidays, and private home tutors were too expensive. Things continued to drag on until Saturday.
Mommy Bai didn’t expect that when the chance came up to sign Bai Qingqing for tuition class, she suddenly found a very cheap home tutor.
She made an appointment to meet up with the person early in the morning.
The Bai family was having a breakfast of noodles with clear broth and pickled vegetables. This menu was unique to their family.
Suddenly, the doorbell rang.
Bai Qingqing said curiously, “Who could be here so early?”
However, Mommy Bai instantly became spirited. She put down her chopsticks and went to open the door.
“The home tutor I hired for you. Be polite later.” Mommy Bai said to her, tidied her appearance, then opened the door.
Bai Qingqing also looked at the door. Curtis had said that he was going to be her tutor. It was such a pity that he had been intercepted.
Mommy Bai paused ever so slightly as if a little surprised. Bai Qingqing immediately felt that something was a little amiss.
Mommy Bai quickly broke into a smile and welcomed the guest into the house, saying warmly, “You’re really early. Please come in. There’s still half an hour before the agreed time. We’re still having breakfast. Have you eaten? Do you want some?”
“No need, I’ve eaten.”
The familiar cold male voice rang out in the not so spacious dining room. It was like cold spring water had splashed one’s entire body, making it colder.
Even though Bai Qingqing had thought of this possibility, she was still extremely surprised, and her jaws dropped.
Mommy Bai walked back to the dining table, and a red color followed after her. It was Curtis, whose red hair was tied up into a ponytail.
“This is Teacher Ke, the home tutor that I’ve hired for Qingqing. He’ll be giving you lessons today. Qingqing, pay attention in class.” Mommy Bai introduced him to the rest of the family.
Bai Qingqing was badly shaken up and almost dropped her chopsticks.
Bai Xiaofan almost spurted out a mouthful of noodles, too. He somehow managed to hold it in but ended up getting noodles stuffed into his nose. He quickly grabbed a few pieces of tissue paper to wipe off his snot, not letting Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai see his strange expression.
Mommy Bai only took it that her children had been shocked by Teacher Ke’s red hair. She was a little surprised herself. When they had a chat, the other party was a man of few words and more of an introvert. She had thought that he was an experienced middle-aged man but didn’t expect him to be so young. If it wasn’t for his calm disposition and tall stature, he’d look like a high school student. His hair, which was longer than her son’s and daughter’s added together, was a bright red color too.
If she had known he was like that, she’d have given it more consideration last night.
However, in all, Mommy Bai still felt that Teacher Ke was quite reliable. His red hair looked good, not having the coyness of those flirtatious women. It gave him character and charm.
