Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 689

After much silence, Zachary said, “I don’t have much savings left after purchasing the villa and the apartment in Brynfield. The car is only a mode of transport. I don’t need a luxury car since the one I have now does the job.”

Zachary was flustered as he was making up more lies to cover up the web of lies* from before.

Serenity gave him another push. “Let go of me.”

“Are you going to run?”

“Where can I run to? I won’t tell you if I plan to run away. I can just pack my stuff and leave. I would be bluffing and trying to scare you if I made a huge commotion to leave. I’d be quiet if I wanted to leave for sure. It will be without hesitation, and you won’t be able to find me.”

With his heart beating out of his chest, Zachary cautiously asked, “Seren, in what circumstances would you leave me?”

“You must be guilty of doing me dirty to ask that question.”

Zachary was quick to deny, “I just want to know, so that I won’t make that mistake and hurt you. I don’t want to give you a chance to leave me.”

Serenity observed his facial features. Seeing that he was calm, Serenity held his face still and looked into his eyes for a long time. She did not catch any signs of guilt in his eyes.

Zachary might be honest or good at hiding his emotions. Either way, she could not read him.

“I can’t stand cheating, domestic violence, and endless lies.”

“I won’t cheat or raise my hand at you.”

Zachary immediately promised.

Serenity ran her fingers across his face. “I hope you’ll keep your word.

“Only time will tell.”

With something to hide, Zachary ignored the statement about endless lies. Although it appeared he had only lied to her once, a single fabrication was covered up with countless lies. He had not been honest with her many times.

His intention was to probe for Serenity’s reaction. He would come clean to her if she only needed a moment to get over her anger.

Now that he knew where the fine line was, Zachary felt conflicted.

He tricked his wife once, and now he was paying for it. Well, Zachary may not stick around to clean up the mess he created because she might dump him before that happened.


Zachary lowered his gaze to meet hers.

“Aren’t we flying home?”

With a flicker in his eyes, Zachary nodded.

“Why are you still hugging me? Let go, so I can pack our stuff to go home.”

Zachary smiled and dotingly planted a kiss on her forehead. He teased, “Why do I feel my wife is more eager than I am?”

“You’re imagining it. I’ve been away from home for a week. I miss my sister, Sonny, my best friends, and Nana. I can’t wait to get home.”

Serenity pulled out a wad of cash from her pocket. It was remuneration from Mr. Tank for looking after Zachary.

“Did you get your pay? Did you check if the amount is right? Make sure they don’t go behind your back and dock your pay.”

While counting the money, Serenity uttered, “I’m homesick.”

She received money for coming all the way to care for her man.

“I’ll only get my wages just before the holidays start. Don’t worry, they won’t dock my pay. I was sent by the headquarters to go on a business trip, so it was paid sick leave.”

Seeing that Serenity had too much fun counting the cash, Zachary said, “While counting the money, are you thinking that I should remain longer in the hospital, so you could’ve gotten more for taking care of me?”

“Yeah. I mean, no. No way. I hope you’re always healthy and away from pain and illness.”

Zachary lovingly dabbed her nose before letting her go.
