Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1317 | [Serenity & Zachary]

Chapter 1317

Duncan’s three brothers did not dare say more.

They were afraid their mother would blame them for spoiling Duncan if they spoke up for him again, causing him to still remain single at the age of thirty–six.

Duncan accompanied Lily out of the house. The two strolled casually along the paved path in the courtyard.

However, Duncan’s pace was fast.

Lily wore high heels, so she struggled to follow him.

“Duncan.”

Lily was not the type who was willing to suffer for the sake of others. She jogged up and reached out to pull Duncan’s hand.

“What is it?”

Duncan’s attitude toward Lily was neither good nor bad. He did not hate Lily, but he just did not feel a spark with her.

He also did not like how his family was arranging a girlfriend for him without his consent.

“Are you running a race with me?”

Duncan’s dark eyes flashed. “Didn’t you say you wanted to take a stroll? Even if you wanted to race, you can’t race after just eating. It’ll upset your stomach.”

Lily paused before stating, “Don’t play dumb, Duncan. There’s a bench here. Let’s sit down and talk.”

Duncan wanted to say that he had nothing to talk to her about.

Their companies never worked together before, so there was nothing to talk about when it came to business.

However, he followed her to the stone bench ahead. Just as he was about to sit down, Lily stopped him, took out a packet of scented tissues, and wiped the bench.

She only allowed him to sit down after she threw away the tissue.

This girl was a conscientious person.

Duncan sat down and said, “The workers here clean the stone benches and tables in the backyard every day.”

“It’s been windy recently, so there’s a lot of dust in the air. Even if it’s cleaned daily, there’ll still be dust. The tissue was full of dirt when I wiped it just now.”

Duncan smiled and asked, “Ms. Harmon, are you a clean freak?”

“No.”

“That’s good. I’m most afraid of clean freaks. An uncouth man like me can’t get along with clean freaks. Zachary is a bit of a clean freak, but he falls within my tolerance.

Zachary was just fussy with cleanliness.

He was not a germaphobe.

“When are you going back, Ms. Harmon?”

Duncan did not spend much time with Lily and had nothing to talk about, so he simply asked her when she was leaving.

Lily looked at him and said with a vague smile, “Are you chasing me out? I haven’t stayed that long yet. I finished what I came here to do, but I haven’t finished the talks with large companies like yours. I won’t be able to go back in the near future.”

The elders of both families wanted to set her up with Duncan, so her parents and brothers supported her in staying at Wiltspoon to talk about business. Her eldest brother was around to manage the company, so she just had to focus on signing a contract with Lewis & Co.

Once they started working together, Lily could come and visit Duncan often.

“I didn’t say I wanted to kick you out. I just felt that you’ve been staying here for a long time but I guess it doesn’t seem that long after all. Let’s talk about our partnership during workdays. It’s the weekend now, so we should relax instead of talking shop.”
