Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1377 | [Serenity & Zachary]
Serenity turned over and gave Jasmine a light pinch. “Alright, I’ll sleep. I’m not flipping pancakes.” Jasmine hugged her and offered comforting words. “You’re basically an elderly couple now. Mr. York loves you a lot. It’s just a miscommunication. It’ll be over before you know it. Relax and go to bed. You’re able to face another day once you get a good night’s sleep.”
“I’m so lucky to have you, Jasmine. At least I have someone to talk to when I don’t feel good.”
“Duh, we go way back. I come to you when I’m feeling down too. Come on. Let’s sleep. Don’t torture yourself with all those thoughts.”
“Okay,” Serenity answered.
Her best friend’s assurance soothed Serenity to dreamland.
It was dark and quiet all around by the time Zachary arrived at the Soxes‘ residence. Everybody was deep in slumberland.
He pulled up at the gate of Jasmine’s family home.
Zachary parked the car and gave Serenity another call.
Since Serenity was asleep, and her phone was on silent mode, she did not take his call.
As a last resort, Zachary braved himself to call Jasmine.
Awakened by the ringing phone, Jasmine accepted the call without looking at the caller ID.
“Who is it? Don’t you have a heart? Why are you calling in the middle of the night? I need my beauty sleep even if you don’t. It’s a sin to wake people up.”
Zachary murmured, “Ms. Sox, it’s me…”
“Who are you? You… Oh, Mr. York?”
Zachary answered in a husky voice, “Yeah, that’s me.”
Jasmine tilted her head to glance at her best friend who was beside her. Seeing that her best friend was in deep sleep, Jasmine gently got up and tiptoed to the window. She pulled the curtains open a little to look down. As expected, she saw Zachary’s car at the gate.
“Why aren’t you in bed at this hour? What’s the meaning of calling me in the middle of the night?”
“I’m at the gate of your house.”
“Ms. Sox, is Seren asleep? Can you call her out? I’ll take her home.”
Jasmine said, “Why don’t you look at the time? She’s asleep. Come back in two days. She said she’ll stay with me for a few days. She’ll go home after my engagement party.”
Zachary took a moment in silence before uttering, “It’s before midnight. Is Seren really asleep, or does she not want to see me?”
It was still early in Zachary’s books. Nevertheless, to most, it was late at night.
“It’s good that you’re aware of that.”
Zachary fell silent.
“Mr. York, I told you what Seren wants. You can either go home or wait here until morning light to see if Seren wants to see you. I’m going to bed. Good night.”
Jasmine terminated the call before Zachary had a chance to say anything else.
She then put her phone on silent.
That way, she could hear nothing even if Zachary blew up her phone.
Zachary helplessly slipped his phone back into his pocket and lifted his head to look at the Soxes‘ house. There was a glint coming from a room on the third floor which Zachary guessed was
Judging by Serenity and Jasmine’s friendship, they must be sharing a room.
Zachary wanted to shout out loud but was afraid he might wake the others.
He stood in front of the gate for a while before checking the surrounding walls of the Soxes‘ residence. They were pretty tall. Although the gate to the yard was high, it was easier to climb over there.
Zachary wondered if he should climb the wall and bring Serenity home.
Nevertheless, it would make people think he was a thief.
He could never show his face in town if word ever got out.
In the end, Zachary whipped out his phone once more to call Jasmine.
Jasmine did not answer.
Nevertheless, she was quick to send him a text message.
“Seren doesn’t want to go back with you.”
Having received the text message from Jasmine, Zachary believed Serenity was still awake. Only, she did not want to take his call or pay him any mind.
He decided to climb over the gate to get to her.
