Married at First Sight Gu Lingfei Chapter 93 – “We’ve been operating on business on this street for years now.
You all know what Siren’s like. Whatever that’s written online is bullish*t.” Serenity did not say much to defend herself.
It was Jasmine, who could not stand people getting the wrong message about her best friend, sticking up for Serenity.
