Chapter 1446 - A Secret 1

Chi Jia noticed that Bai Qing seemed to have returned to normal recently. She no longer sat in her seat in a daze from time to time.

Of course, probably because of her mother’s disappearance, the innocent smile on her face had disappeared. She seemed to have become more mature and more intelligent. This led to more boys confessing to her, it wasn’t just the students from the same class, there were also those from the other classes.

However, they were all rejected by Bai Qing on the grounds that she was focused on her studies.

Chi Jia heaved a sigh of relief. No matter what, Bai Qing seemed to have walked out of the shadow of that Brat.

It was strange to say that although Zhang Heng wasn’t invisible in the class, he wasn’t considered an influential figure either. His studies were good and his results in sports were above average. It was said that both his parents and grandfather were intellectuals, therefore, he had an aura about him, but other than that, he didn’t seem to have any other special skills. He was polite to everyone, but he kept his distance from them.

Some girls in the class would fall in love with a guy like him, but logically speaking, they shouldn’t be able to move Bai Qing. Furthermore, the two of them didn’t have much interaction before. It wasn’t until they became deskmates that they gradually became friends, however, that was the end of it.

Chi Jia couldn’t understand how the relationship between the two of them quickly heated up. By the time she realized what was going on, she realized that her best friend had already fallen in love with Zhang Heng.

Unfortunately, the good times didn’t last long. Soon after, Bai Qing’s family underwent a terrifying change. The news said that her father had killed her mother, and Bai Qing had taken a leave of absence from school for a period of time, chi Jia also didn’t know how Bai Qing managed to survive that period of time. Fortunately, Bai Qing’s father was acquitted and her mother went missing instead of dying.

However, Zhang Heng was later arrested by the police on charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition, driving without a license, running into people in the street, and suspected homicide.

Chi Jia felt that life had never been so absurd. Zhang Heng was a high school student, and he usually looked gentle and refined. How could he be related to these seemingly horrifying charges, what surprised everyone even more was that the police hadn’t been able to catch Zhang Heng until now.

No, that’s not right. Perhaps there was one person who wasn’t surprised by this, and that was Bai Qing. She had told Chi Jia that Zhang Heng’s real identity was actually a superhero, and that he had left quietly after saving the world.

Chi Jia agreed with him, but she only felt a pang of heartache in her heart. She felt that the recent events that had happened to Bai Qing had been too much, and the girl’s spirit couldn’t take it anymore, she had no choice but to use this lie to numb herself.

Chi Jia’s mouth was usually vicious, but underneath her careless appearance, she actually had a sensitive and thin heart. So she didn’t refute, and instead, she followed Bai Qing’s words to help her cover up this beautiful lie.

However, after Zhang Heng was arrested, Bai Qing was indeed depressed for a period of time. It wasn’t until three months later that she recovered.

Chi Jia was also a little confused about this. She didn’t know how Bai Qing was able to resolve the knot in her heart, but no matter what, it was still a good thing.

In order to celebrate her best friend’s recovery from the Haze, Chi Jia even invited Bai Qing to karaoke together. However, Bai Qing kept saying that she couldn’t find the time until winter vacation arrived. Bai Qing couldn’t find any other excuses, she had no choice but to give up her life in the library and her house under Chi Jia’s pressure.

The two of them arranged to meet at the mall. They planned to go shopping for a while. After lunch, they would gather enough energy to sing. Bai Qing arrived two minutes earlier than Chi Jia. She was wearing a thick down jacket and a red knit hat, she wrapped both of her ears in it.

However, after entering the heated mall, the howling cold wind outside could no longer make threatening gestures. Bai Qing took off the hat on her head and shook off the snowflakes on it. Then, she was slightly startled.

That was because she saw the KFC on the right. Then, she recalled her first date with someone here.

It was not accurate to say that it was a date. Originally, it was just that person who wanted to borrow her homework. The two of them arranged to meet here. Later, in order to thank her, that person invited her here for a meal, but then Bai Qing realized that the guy who had said he was going to treat her might not have enough money on him.

She thought it was funny, but she took the opportunity to pay for the meal while the guy was out on the phone. In order to avoid embarrassing someone, she pretended not to know what the guy was doing out, then the two ate fast food and chatted to pass the time.

It was at this time that Bai Qing realized that she was unexpectedly happy chatting with this guy who usually seemed to be quiet and unsociable.

“What’s wrong? Didn’t you eat breakfast? It’s only ten o’clock. Are you hungry so early?”

Chi Jia’s voice pulled Bai Qing back from her memories.

“Oh, no, I just want to eat somewhere in the afternoon.”

“Don’t worry about such things. I’ll make sure you’re well-organized today.”Chi Jia patted her chest and promised.

“Really? Okay.”Bai Qing looked away from the KFC and replied with a smile.

Then, the two of them went shopping as planned. At noon, they ate Korean hotpot together and then sang.

Chi Jia was a celebrity chaser. She had chased countless idol singers and knew their works like the back of her hand. However, she herself was tone deaf, perhaps this was in line with the saying that the more she lacked, the more she liked it. While Chi Jia Ba was typing crazily into the microphone, Bai Qing pushed open the door of the private room and was about to go to the toilet.

However, just as he turned the corner, he accidentally bumped into an acquaintance.

Bai Qing recognized the person leaning against the wall and playing with his phone. He was Qin Zhen, a friend who had grown up with Zhang Heng. Bai Qing had seen Qin Zhen when they went to a concert together.

Qin Zhen heard footsteps and raised his head. When he saw it was Bai Qing, an awkward expression appeared on his face. The two of them could only be said to know each other, but not to the extent of being friends. The only connection between them was Zhang Heng.

And this was a name that made both of them feel complicated. When they saw each other, they could not help but think of that person.

The air around them froze slightly.

In the end, it was Qin Zhen who broke the silence first. “Um… how have you been recently?”

“Pretty good,”Bai Qing said. “How About You?”

Before Qin Zhen could answer, a tall girl with fair skin walked out from the bathroom at the side. As she wiped her hands, she complained to Qin Zhen, “The hand sanitizer is used up, and no one added it. Let’s go back and continue singing…”

Her voice suddenly stopped because she saw Bai Qing in front of her. A hint of vigilance appeared on her face. “Your Friend?”

“Yes, sort of.”Qin Zhen nodded. Bai Qing noticed that the tall girl’s hand was reaching for Qin Zhen’s waist, as if she was secretly exerting force. The latter’s expression changed slightly. “Ah, I still have something to do…”

“I know. We’ll talk later.”Bai Qing smiled at the tall girl and walked into the washroom at the side.
