Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 854

After changing his clothes, Zachary drank the bowl of ginger soup under his mother’s gaze. He frowned because the soup was way too spicy.

“Mom, why is there so much ginger? It’s so spicy.”

“Your Nana asked them to add more ginger. If you don’t like ginger soup, then don’t do such stupid things again in the future.”

Zachary put down the bowl. “I really was just trying to calm down. I wasn’t trying to do anything stupid.”

“Yes, yes, if you say so. Are you calm now? Go talk to Nana. She’s the one who started it. You wouldn’t have ended up like this if not for her.”

Tania was somewhat resentful of her mother-in-law.

Her son was such an excellent man. It was not like he could not find a wife, but the old woman insisted on him marrying her savior.

At first, they were all grateful to Serenity and wanted to thank her, but Serenity refused.

Later, Serenity and Grandma May got along well, and Serenity won the old lady’s favor. Tania secretly wondered if Serenity refused their large sum of money because she knew of Grandma May’s identity and wanted more.

Her husband had said, “Let’s wait and see.”

As they watched, Serenity eventually became their daughter-in-law.

Serenity was in the dark about Grandma May’s identity and she did not know that Zachary was the CEO of York Corporation when she married him. If not for these facts that Tania only found out afterward, she would have thought Serenity was a scheming woman.

Then, she found out that the couple treated each other like ice. They lived in the same house but rarely communicated and even slept in separate rooms. Her son also told Serenity to sign a contract.

Tania had no idea about the content of the contract.

However, she believed her son would not put himself at a disadvantage. The contract must have been more restrictive on Serenity’s part.

Alas, at some point, the feelings between the young couple gradually warmed up.

Tania admitted that she had been waiting for the couple to divorce. She had always felt that Serenity was not worthy of her eldest son.

She could not care if it was her second son. She would be able to accept it no matter who the woman was as long as her son liked the woman.

However, it was different for her eldest son. Zachary was the successor of the family. As the head of the family, how could he have a wife who was an orphan and had a bunch of horrible relatives? No matter how independent Serenity was, unless she could rely on her own skills to marry into a wealthy family like Audrey did, not everyone would be able to accept her.

Otherwise, the pressure on Serenity would be too heavy.

There were nine sons in Zachary’s generation, and it was impossible for all of them to marry a woman with no reputable family background like Zachary did.

In the future, Serenity’s sisters-in-law would be from rich families. How would Serenity, as the eldest, prove her worth?

Tania felt that Grandma May did not consider that for Serenity. The old woman liked Serenity, so she forced her grandson to marry Serenity. She did not think about what Serenity would face in the future.

Zachary was silent for a moment before saying, “Mom, Serenity and I are fated. If we weren’t, we wouldn’t have developed feelings for each other even if Nana wanted me to repay her.”

It was said that fate brings people together no matter how far apart they may be.

Zachary believed in fate.

There were many people in this world who were not meant to be and could not become a couple even after knowing each other for a lifetime.

That was why Serenity and he were linked by the red thread of fate.

“I don’t regret marrying Serenity either. I just feel like I let her down. When she married me, I didn’t give her a betrothal gift or host a wedding ceremony for her. I only made up for our wedding ring afterward. She has suffered a lot because of me.”

If it were an ordinary person signing that agreement at the beginning, they would have felt extremely aggrieved.

However, Serenity signed it and kept to the contract.

Instead, it was he who failed to do so.

He asked her not to fall in love with him in the contract, saying that he could not reciprocate her feelings.

In the end, it was he who begged her to love him…
