Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 13

Zachary was the center of attention as he walked into the room, completely oblivious to his new bride in a corner. Serenity’s gaze could not get past the crowd and onto her man’s face.

After failing to catch a glimpse of the leading man despite standing on her toes to look for a long time, Serenity soon lost interest and sat back down. She tugged on her best friend and said, “I won’t bother. There are too many people around to get a good look. Let’s eat.”

To Serenity, the mission tonight was to pig out!

“Wait for me here, Seren. I’ll ask my aunt who came. All that commotion is as if the king has graced us with his presence.”

The curiosity was eating Jasmine up inside.

“Sure,” Serenity casually replied.

Jasmine went off on her own.

Since Serenity had cleared her plates, she picked up her empty plates and got up. While everybody was fussing over the VIP, Serenity could grab the food at ease without enduring the stares and dirty looks.

Zachary walked into the room and first went to have a small talk with the organizer of the event. His bodyguards, with their game faces on, kept their eyes and ears peeled for anything and everything. Mr. Zachary had a thing against females coming too close.

Their primary task when attending events with Mr. Zachary was to be on the lookout for those with ulterior motives.

Perhaps blessed with height, one of the bodyguards was able to look far and caught sight of Mr. Zachary’s wife while assessing the venue.

Zachary withheld his identity when he married Serenity. However, as Zachary’s bodyguards, they recognized the missus of the house. Hence, Zachary’s bodyguards, aside from the old Mrs., were familiar with Serenity.

Thinking his eyes were fooling him, the said bodyguard was fixated on the girl and realized that it was indeed Mr. Zachary’s wife. 1

The missus was unfazed by Mr. Zachary’s presence as she held two plates and selected her favorite food. It did not take long before her plates were filled to the brim. Carrying two plates of food, Serenity walked away and sat down at the table in a corner.

She proceeded to indulge in the food like nothing ever happened.

The bodyguard, “…” Once Zachary was done exchanging words with a few well-acquainted CEOs, the bodyguard seized the opportunity to walk up to him and whispered, “Mr. Zachary, I saw your missus.” 1.

Zachary furrowed his brows but quickly wiped off the scowl and coldly blurted, “Why is she here?”

“No clue.”

“Keep an eye on her. Don’t let her see me. Also, snap some pictures of who she’s with and interacts with.”

In Zachary’s eyes, Serenity had not cleared herself from having an ulterior motive. He suspected Serenity: was here to climb higher on the social ladder

That was the reason he kept his identity from her. Serenity might be turned off that he was a measly wage earner

The bodyguard respectfully took the order.

Zachary casually went back to sharing a pleasant conversation with the CEOs. It was usually through these conversations that deals were closed.

Serenity was unaware that she was seen and watched by her husband’s bodyguard.

With Jasmine returning from asking around, Serenity inquired, “How was it? Did you get anything?”

“Yeah. The heir of the Yorks is here. He’s the head of York Corporation, but I couldn’t see the man himself. There are too many people. He’s also surrounded by a security detail. My aunt lamentably told me that the heir doesn’t like females getting too close to him. Every time he attends an event, he keeps his bodyguards near to shut out all the single ladies from trying to chat him up.”

“Oh.” Serenity could not care less.

“Seren, your man is also a York. Do you think there’s no correlation? There aren’t a lot of people with that last name, and that’s the surname of the richest family.”
