Married at First Sight Gu Lingfei Chapter 38 – Well, too bad the young couple was not that close.
Zachary and Serenity were only sharing a living space while still carrying on with their separate lives. Even if Zachary was p*ssed at her to kingdom come, Serenity could not care less so long as he did not kick her out.
Serenity washed the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen before mopping the entire house. Finally, she sat on her recent purchase – the balcony swing –
and enjoyed the cool night breeze in her hair. This was the life.
Not to mention, the balcony was a mini garden. Looking at the flourishing greenery , Serenity was once again in awe of Zachary’s competence to get
the job done. The sound of steady footsteps led to the balcony. Soon, Zachary came to the balcony.
The sight of Serenity swinging leisurely only added grimacing lines to Zachary‘s scowling face. He drew close and handed two sheets of paper to Serenity.
“What‘s this?” Serenity asked out of curiosity. Although Zachary buttoned his lips, he got the message out loud and clear. She would know once she took a look at the papers. Grabbing the papers, Serenity read through the content that outlined a contract .
Zachary printed two coples so each of them had one. His signature and personal seal stamp were already on the documents. Tch. What was this? Making it official? Reaching the floor with her tippy toes, Serenity pushed back and let the motion of the swing take her.
Serenity leaned back against the swinging chair as she read every line of the contract. The terms and conditions filled the entire page. Serenity only paid attention to the main points. She was not to hanker after his body since they were strangers and only husband and wife by name.
To put it simply, they would sleep in separate rooms and would not engage in marital obligations. Should Serenity and Zachary fail to develop feelings for each other in six months, they would proceed with an amicable divorce.
Zachary was willing to sign the house and national MPV to Serenity as the divorce settlement. That was just about what Serenity could expect out of the divorce. Zachary specifically stressed that Serenity could forget about getting her hands on Nana‘s assets.
Apart from getting the house and car after the divorce , the terms were not in Serenity’s favor. Zachary made adequate precautions
to protect his wealth and chastity against Serenity.
Zachary callously uttered, “Serenity, we might be married but certainly not for love. I think we should have a written agreement between us. Don‘t worry,
everything else, unless outlined in the contract, will remain unchanged.” In short, she should not fall in love with him, get into his pants, or take
possession of Nana‘s assets.
Serenity had no hard feelings at all. In fact, she understood the reason for him to cover all bases. She said, “I have no intention of taking Nana‘s
possessions. I‘m able–bodied and fully capable of caring for myself. There‘s no need for me to mooch off the elderly.”
In Serenity‘s mind, Nana was a retiree living off her pension of around two to three thousand bucks a month. Even if Nana received an allowance from her family, there was only so much she could save. Nana probably did not have as much as Serenity.
It never crossed Serenity‘s mind to take what was never hers. The whirlwind marriage to Zachary was to end the fights between Liberty and Hank. It was also to give Liberty peace of mind that Serenity was in safe hands. Prior to getting the marriage license, Serenity had asked Zachary Ulldplel j.
if he wanted to go halves. Splitting the expenses could really drive the rift between couples who married for love like Liberty and Hank. In Serenity and
Zachary‘s case, the divided responsibilities would work best.
Serenity ran her eyes on Zachary from head to toe before paying him a compliment. “Mr. York, you must be favored by God because He gave you a
nice face and hot body. Some people might revere the unapproachable vibes you give while others would be tempted to conquer your heart.”
Zachary‘s eyes were overshadowed by a bleak grimness. Serenity suddenly sang to a different tune as she added in glee. “Bu t not everybody would adore you. Don‘t worry, I won‘t fall in love with you, nor do I want to get into your pants, Mr. York
I have nothing to add to your drafted agreement. Give me a pen to sign. Since I don‘t have a rubber stamp, I‘ll leave my fingerprint as a seal of agreement.” Having anticipated a full–blown tantrum from her when he drafted the contract, Zachary was taken aback that she was not offended.
As a matter of fact, Serenity even complimented him for having made a good call in doing so. After a brief silence, Zachary presented Serenity with a pen.
