Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 23

“A bit of breakfast won’t hurt the bank. Liberty, I won’t overdo it.”

Serenity had adequate income to help her sister, but she would not pour her entire paycheck into doing it as she had her mind set on becoming a homeowner.

“Has Sonny eaten?”

Serenity asked while feeling Sonny’s temperature. His body temperature was in the normal range.

“He had milk. I have chicken soup simmering on the stove. I’ll feed him some later when it’s ready.”

Liberty took excellent care of her son.

“Zachary will be home in two days. His parents will be visiting this Saturday. Come to Brynfield with my brother-in-law on the same day for dinner with the family. Can you let him know about this?”

Liberty asked happily, “Is your husband coming back from his business trip?”

“He said he’ll be back Friday night.”

“Alright. I’ll keep my husband in the loop.”

Liberty had a clear idea of why her sister decided to get married. Although she went along with Serenity’s lie, Liberty had her concerns about Serenity’s other half.

She had never seen Serenity’s husband in person.

Liberty would not take the meeting with the in laws lightly

After spending some time at her sister’s place, Serenity left for work.

Once Serenity was gone, Liberty fed her son chicken soup and took him out for a stroll and shopping. She wanted to get new clothes for the meeting with the in-laws.

Liberty dressed down as a stay-at-home mom, and her clothes were bargain hunts from warehouse sales.

Back when she was single, Liberty was very particular about the way she lived her life. Although her clothes were not big-time labels, they were tailored. Now that she had devoted her life into having a family, she stopped working and lost her source of income. Her savings were drained into the house’s renovations.

Now, Liberty counted her pennies and spent the money on the family rather than herself.

To make a good impression on her sister’s in-laws, Liberty bought two dresses a little on the upscale side, together with a suit and tie for her husband.

She was walking out of the clothing store when a call from her husband came in.

“Hello, honey.”

Holding her son, Liberty pushed the stroller and took the call.

“What did you spend on again? It’s over a thousand bucks. That’s more than half of the allowance gone. I’m telling you now that we’re going halves on the living expenses. The thousand

bucks are on you. You’re on your own if you don’t have enough to last the month.”

Like Zachary, Liberty’s husband, Hank Brown gave a supplementary card to his wife. He would transfer cash into the account every month for household expenses. However, the account was tied to his mobile phone number, so he would receive a message whenever Liberty used the card.

The groceries for a family of three were kept under a hundred bucks as Hank transferred three thousand dollars into the account every month. Liberty would have a couple hundred to spare if she spent the money wisely. Nevertheless, it was hard to stretch the three thousand bucks should the child fall sick.

Since it slipped Liberty’s mind to bring along her own bank card, Liberty had to swipe the card used for household expenses. It never crossed her mind that her husband would be on her case the moment she stepped out of the clothing store.
