Married at First Sight Gu Lingfei Chapter 26 – Meanwhile, a train of luxury sedans cruised along with one of them being a Rolls Royce. It was Zachary’s private ride.
With the convoy stopping at the side of the road, Zachary rolled down his window and looked at the scarfaced man. He asked, “What are you doing here, Duncan?”
“I went to get something, but I came back to a scratch on my car,” “Did you catch the perpetrator?” Out of impulse, Zachary asked, “Do you need my help to catch whoever vandalized your car?”
“It’s fine. I got her number. I’ll claim the damages from her after I get my car fixed. Wiltspoon is my city. She can run but she can’t hide.” Returning to his car, Duncan Lewis started the engine and told Zachary, “I’m off.” Without another word, Zachary wound the windows back up and drove away alongside the convoy.
Time ticked away quickly. It was soon evening. Once the afterschool rush hour had calmed down, Serenity intended to make dinner for her and Jasmine in the kitchen when she received a call from Liberty.
“Seren, I’ve been thinking about it all day. I’m coming to you because I’m out of options.
“What happened, Liberty?”“I was pushing the stroller and accidentally left a scratch on a Maybach when I went shopping in the afternoon. It must be expensive to repair this sort of car.
My stash probably won’t cover it. I told your brother-in-law about it, but he yelled at me to fix my own problem.” With her heart sinking to the pit of her stomach, Serenity inquired, “Take a deep breath, Liberty. How much is the repair ?”
“I don’t know yet. The car owner took my number and said he’ll call me when the car is fixed.” “All that matters is that you and Sonny are fine. We can pay for the repairs. I’ll lend you the money. Don’t worry about it.”
Liberty choked with sobs. “Seren, I’m such a loser. I can’t believe I messed up.” “It’s only an accident, Liberty. Don’t feel bad. Money is just material things. Be thankful no one got hurt.”
Once Liberty calmed down, Serenity turned to her best friend,“ Jasmine, I need to rush home.” “Okay.”
Having found out that Liberty needed support, Jasmine urged her best friend to get home.
Serenity raced to her sister’s place and sat with her the whole night before reaching home at midnight, Zachary’s deadpan questioning echoed across the room when she opened the door to the house. “Why are you back so late?”
While closing the door, Serenity answered, “My sister got into a bit of a fix.” The tension along Zachary’s facial lines eased up a little as he asked faintly,
“What happened to your sister?”
“She went shopping this afternoon when she accidentally knocked the stroller onto a luxury car parked by the road. Since it’s a scratch, the repair should
cost a lot. My sister doesn’t have a job or an income. She’s worried she can’t afford the repairs.”
There was a flicker in Zachary’s dark eyes. Was it possible that Serenity’s sister damaged Duncan’s car? “What type of car was it? What’s the damage?”
Keeping a straight face, Zachary probed.
“My sister said it was a Maybach. I guess it must be expensive to fix a scratch on that kind of car.” Serenity was uncertain how much of a damage to the pocket it would be.
