Married at First Sight Gu Lingfei Chapter 32 – Last night, Serenity stayed up late for Zachary to come home so she could make plans with him to shop for groceries on Saturday morning.
Serenity called Nana the night before to get a headcount. As it turned out, Zachary’s brothers and cousins were also coming along. The way Nana saw
it. Serenity was part of the York family now that she was married to Zachary.
By meeting the family, Nana wanted to bring together everybody to introduce the family tree. Since there was going to be a lot of food, Serenity would not be able to carry all the groceries on her own. Hence, she requested Zachary to take her to the market by car.
Like the other day, Zachary was startled awake by Serenity’s morning call at six o’clock sharp. Feeling grumpy from the early rise, Zachary had to bottle up his grievance to stop himself from yelling at Serenity.
“Mr. York.” Serenity’s clear voice washed away some of the unpleasantness in the morning. With eyebrows pinched together, Zachary answered gruffly, “Give me ten minutes.
“Sure. I made some pancakes. Come and have some when you’re washed up. We can get to the market after breakfast.” Zachary asked, “… What time did you get up?” It was only six in the morning.
Yet, Serenity had breakfast ready. “About five.” It was time-consuming for one person to prepare a feast. Serenity made an early start to get the ball rolling. Without another word, Zachary terminated the call.
She did not take the family event lightly. Zachary was more than pleased with her attitude toward meeting his family. Ten minutes later. Zachary emerged at the dining table , dressed in casual wear.
She was enjoying her breakfast. With a smile , she said, “ Try my pancakes. My sister said I make the best pancakes.” Zachary took a glance at the breakfast spread. As the pancakes looked sumptuous and appetizing, he finished a whole plate.
It was delicious indeed. She was a good cook. He was lucky in that sense. Zachary felt more comfortable having her home-cooked meal than takeouts.
Serenity cleared the table and washed the dishes in the kitchen.
“Mr. York, do you only have dark-colored clothes?” Zachary’s silence was his admission. “What’s your size? I’ll add color to your wardrobe when I go shopping next time. You have a stern face, to begin with, so it’s hard to approach you when you wear dark colors too.”
Seeing chills in his eyes, Zachary revealed his feelings through an icy voice, “Stay out of my wardrobe choices!” He loved dark colors, so if she had a
problem with that, she could poke her eyes blind for all he cared!
Sensing the indifference and displeasure in his tone, Serenity kept to herself before breaking the silence. “I’m sorry. I went too far. To each their own. I
shouldn’t force my habits on you.” Zachary left the conversation at that.
He took strides to the balcony. The calming view of the mini garden saw the tension on his face easing up A few minutes later. Serenity grabbed her purse and cried, “Let’s go, Mr. York.” Zachary returned from the balcony without a word and quietly took his keys.
The couple left the house together. They were prudent not to bring up the unhappy episode from just now. The couple was getting to know each other, still figuring things out together in a shared living space. There were bound to be more unexpected clashes between them later
on. Serenity had an eye for detail and sorted the menu for today. She had even listed the ingredients. It would be a breeze getting the items with a shopping list ready. Zachary thought highly of Serenity’s conduct in life.
