Married at First Sight Gu Lingfei Chapter 39 – Taking the pen, Serenity got up from the swing and walked to the balcony railing to sign her
name on the contract against the hard concrete.
Zachary took out an ink pad for her to seal the agreement with a thumbprint. The couple kept one copy of the contract each. Serenity folded the contract nonchalantly and stuffed it in her pocket.
Zachary was irked by her incuriosity , but who was he to judge? He wrote the contract after all. Even though the demands outlined were detrimental and
worked to her disadvantage , Serenity did not try to add a clause to get more than what was already stated.
“You had a tiring day. Get some rest.” “You too.” Serenity said with a smile. “I‘m going to sit here for a bit and enjoy the flowers. It has always been my dream to have a balcony filled with plants.
Now that my dream has come true, I just can‘t get enough of the view.” She did not seem to hold the contract against him at all. Did she marry him without a hidden agenda? Was he just being paranoid? How else could he explain her unruffled, unfazed, and even happy behavior? Zachary quietly stared at her for a while before leaving her to be.
He grabbed his car keys and went out the door. Serenity‘s mellow voice was heard from the balcony “Are you going out, Mr. York?” “Yeah. Don‘t stay up and wait for me. Just leave the door unlocked for me.” Serenity grinned. “I have never stayed up and waited for you.” Zachary was stumped.
Her reply was a slap in his face. Flustered, Zachary made a quick exit. He went to the Lewis‘ residence to have a drink with Duncan. Serenity really
got him in a foul mood. Serenity should be the one to feel humiliated and upset. Yet, she did not care.
Zachary, on the other hand, had been up the wall, probably because he felt brushed off for the first time. That was right. Serenity‘s offhanded response toward the strict terms of the contract was a mirror of her attitude toward him.
He was a dreamboat , but Serenity had no intentions to fall in love with him. He had an awesome body, but the thoughts of jumping him and getting into his pants never crossed Serenity‘s mind. Huh? What was he whining about? Zachary should be happy that she knew her place.
At least, she was not shameless to be all over him. Despite all that talk to convince himself, Zachary had a bit too much to drink at Duncan‘s place. Duncan was of no help as he only brought out all the good liquor. In the end, Zachary was three sheets to the wind.
Zachary must have drunk a lot because he was someone who could hold his liquor. That was some good wine. Duncan had it worse though as he collapsed to the ground unconscious while Zachary was still able to walk.
Zachary was picked up by his bodyguards. While on the road, the bodyguard asked his drunk but wide–awake employer, “Where to, Sir?” “T–To Brynfield.” He should not stay out since the couple only met the parents today.
That was the least he could do to show some respect to his wife. The bodyguards dropped Zachary off at Brimfield. Although Zachary was still capable of walking, the bodyguard was uncomfortable leaving him alone and helped Zachary up the stairs.
“Sir, should I wake the missus up?” The bodyguard only asked since the missus should be in bed at this late hour. Feeling around for his house keys, Zachary cried, “No need.”
