Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1236

Instead of going out, Mrs. Lewis stayed at home and waited for Lily’s return. She wanted to know if Duncan ate the breakfast Lily delivered.

Picking up on the sound of an approaching vehicle, Mrs. Lewis walked out of the house.

“Mrs. Lewis.”

Lily got out of the car and approached Mrs. Lewis with empty food containers.

Judging by the smile on Lily’s smile, Mrs. Lewis could tell that her son ate Lily’s homemade breakfast.

The pair strolled back into the house in talk and laughter.

Handing the food containers to the maid, Lily helped Mrs. Lewis to sit on the sofa.

“Why didn’t you stay longer at Duncan’s office?”

“Duncan has a meeting coming up. I didn’t want to take up too much of his time. Mrs. Lewis, I told Duncan that you told me to deliver the breakfast, and he ate it all up. He even asked me if you have a new chef. He thinks well of my cooking.”

Mrs. Lewis was all smiles as if Lily was about to become her daughter–in–law.

“You should deliver Duncan packed breakfast more often. See if he needs anything else. With all that you do for him, he’ll be smitten with you in no time. You can do it, Lily. I can’t wait for you to be part of the family.”

Pulling out her phone, Lily tapped into her photo album and pointed at Jessica before asking, “Who is this woman, Mrs. Lewis? Do you know her? She seems to know Duncan. I saw them talking.

“All You Can Eat diner is owned by Liberty. Duncan was going to have his breakfast there, but Liberty was away for personal reasons. Her diner was closed today. He only ate my breakfast because he went to work on an empty stomach.”

Otherwise, Duncan would not have eaten her food.

Lily was confident at first and did not see Liberty as a threat.

Mrs. Lewis had warned her that the person to watch was Liberty. Lily thought Duncan would be blind to fall for a fat divorcee with extra baggage like Liberty.

Now, she believed Mrs. Lewis had a point.

Duncan enjoyed having breakfast at Liberty’s diner. Something might develop between the two as time went by.

“I don’t know this woman. I’ve never seen her before. I’ll have her looked up–who she is and how she came to know Duncan. She seemed to be leaving in a fluster. Duncan must

have called her out on something. I wouldn’t be worried about this woman if I were you.”

Mrs. Lewis was old and a mother to Duncan. She was a better judge of people than Lily. It did not take long for Mrs. Lewis to observe Jessica in the photo before eliminating her.

“Is this the street Duncan drives by to the office? If my guess is right, Duncan owns half the street. He bought the commercial spaces there and left the management in the hands of his butler. The butler collects the rent.

“Liberty once worked at Duncan’s company. She quit when she divorced her husband. I didn’t pay attention to what she was doing after that. I can’t believe she rented a commercial space from Duncan to set up an eatery.”

Furrowing her brows, Mrs. Lewis added, “I wonder if Duncan collects rent from her. I should ask him.

“I told you to keep an eye out for Liberty. The person who can be your rival is Liberty. Out of all the places she could have built her business, Liberty had to choose to operate on that street–Duncan’s route to work.

“It’s clear cut what she’s really after. I bet she wants to marry into a rich family after her sister managed to. Well, she should take a look in the mirror. She’s fat and divorced. Plus, she has a son from her previous marriage. She should consider herself lucky if she is able to find another man. How dare she set her sights on my son.”

Not taking kindly toward Liberty, Mrs. Lewis put whatever blame on Liberty.

“Mrs. Lewis, I think Liberty is not eyeballing Duncan. At least, not at the moment. Let’s not be so quick to label her as a gold digger. Didn’t Serenity marry Mr. York without knowing who he was? She nearly had a falling out with Mr. York when she found out the truth.”
