Chapter 1535: Tip-Off
Daddy Bai walked over, and his eyes instantly widened. “This…”
He stuttered for a bit but didn’t manage to speak. He looked towards Bai Qingqing and saw that his daughter’s expression didn’t even change in the slightest as she zipped up the bag.
“Alright, I see your sincerity. Take it away with you when you leave.” After she finished speaking, Bai Qingqing cast a sheepish glance at her dad.
She wondered if her father would think she was siding with an outsider by saying this.
Daddy Bai sized her up as if he was looking at a stranger and suddenly felt that his daughter was very unfamiliar. Even he couldn’t resist the urge to take the cash for himself when he saw the bag, yet his daughter shoved it out as though it was a bag of white paper.
After that, Daddy Bai felt a sense of pride well up, but at the same time, he was worried.
With such indifference towards wealth, his daughter would very likely suffer a disadvantage in the future.
Alas, Daddy Bai was overthinking. Bai Qingqing wasn’t at all one to treat money like dirt. Unbeknownst to him, she was merely acting like this because she simply regarded this money as belonging to her family. Since the money was her family’s, it didn’t matter where it was kept.
Winston, however, pushed the money to Daddy Bai and said, “I said I’d give it to you. Please allow Qingqing to be with me. I’ve just come to this city and my career has just taken off. This is the largest amount of cash I can take out. If you find it too little, I can gather ten times the amount during this period of time.”
Daddy Bai touched the travel bag and felt a scalding sensation. He suddenly thought of an idiom: Surrendering one’s last resources.
Daddy Bai pushed the bag away with much difficulty and said righteously, “I can’t take this money. Qingqing, you decide.”
That said, he still worried about letting his daughter follow the man just like that. He patted Bai Qingqing’s shoulder and added, “But I advise you to keep it. You can take it with you as a dowry when you marry. Daddy and Mommy won’t be greedy for the betrothal money.”
“Thank you, Daddy.” Bai Qingqing looked at Winston and said, “You can bring it back now. Don’t you have to buy goods? Don’t let your business be held up.”
Daddy Bai helplessly sighed inside and shook his head as he walked back to his bedroom.
Having been standing in the corridor since G.o.d-knows-when, Bai Xiaofan instantly pointed at Winston and asked at the sight of his father, “Who is he?”
“Go back to your room. There’s nothing that concerns you here,” Daddy Bai said irritably. As he walked, he took out his phone to contact Mommy Bai.
Bai Xiaofan went back to his room glumly. He retrieved his phone, looked up Teacher Ke’s number, and texted him: [Are things alright between you and my sis?]
Curtis replied instantly: [What’s wrong?]
Bai Xiaofan hesitated for a moment before texting: [Nothing.]
Then, he vexedly threw his phone on the blankets and fell face-down on his bed.
He didn’t dare to believe his eyes. What’s that Caucasian doing here? Is he here to pay the betrothal money? Is Sister going to be with him?
Heavens! Compared to him, Teacher Ke was simply perfect!
His text message ringtone rang again quickly. Curtis’s reply was sharp: [Did you see someone? Who went to your house?]
Bai Xiaofan gasped. Teacher Ke could indeed foretell with divine accuracy. To think he actually managed to guess this.
He was caught in a dilemma. After all, she was his older sister. Even if she was a two-timer, in principle, he still stood on his sister’s side.
After gazing at his phone for a long while, Bai Xiaofan replied: [No. I was just asking casually.]
Seeing that Curtis didn’t send any more text messages, Bai Xiaofan heaved a sigh of relief.
The only ones in the living room, Bai Qingqing and Winston obediently sat side by side on the sofa. Bai Qingqing glanced at the bag of money and said, “Take it away later. Ah, the money’s only going to collect mold if you keep it here with me. Doing business is more important.”
