Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1398 | [Serenity & Zachary]
“Mom,” Clive and Elisa called out to Mrs. Stone.
Mr. Stone also disapproved of his wife’s staying. He said, “We can’t do anything by staying in the hospital. Let’s all go back to rest and take care of the things that haven’t been taken care of yet.”
Mrs. Stone’s voice choked up right after she said that.
She was worried about her niece as much as Serenity was worried about her sister. She and Serenity were the same.
“Aunt Audrey, go home and rest. I’ll let you know as soon as my sister wakes up.”
Serenity helped to persuade Mrs. Stone to go home.
Mrs. Stone was gradually getting older, after all.
She finally left the hospital after everyone repeatedly persuaded her.
In the end, only Zachary, Serenity, and Duncan remained.
“Duncan, there are still many things you and Josh need to deal with together. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know once Liberty wakes up.” Zachary knew his good friend was also worried about his sister- in–law. He patted Duncan’s shoulder and said, “I’m counting on you and Josh to wrap things up.”
Duncan looked at the ICU ward. He wanted to be by Liberty’s side, but she was in the ward at the moment. Even Serenity could not take care of her sister, let alone him.
After a long silence, Duncan looked at Sonny again.
Sonny had fallen asleep in Serenity’s arms but was still subconsciously grabbing her shirt. What happened today was going to be a lifelong trauma for the three–year–old kid.
Duncan’s heart ached for Sonny.
“Let me know if anything happens. I’ll go deal with the follow–up first.”
Duncan took a deep breath and looked at the ward again before he turned around to leave.
If they wanted Liberty and Sonny to be safe and be able to live like normal people in the future without having to worry about something like this happening again, they needed to handle this matter well.
Zachary ordered his bodyguard to go out and pack some fast food back. He then asked his driver to take his RV to the hospital so that it would be easier to cook food for Sonny.
After giving his orders, Zachary sat next to Serenity. He wanted to carry Sonny instead but as soon as he touched Sonny, the little boy was so frightened that he clung to Serenity’s shirt with both hands.
“Sonny, don’t be scared. I’m here.”
Serenity quickly hugged Sonny and patted him. She then lowered her head and rested her forehead against his. It had a calming effect, and Sonny was soothed again.
“I should carry him; he has taken a fright.”
Zachary did not try to hold Sonny again. He removed his suit jacket and draped it over Sonny’s body.
Following that, he reached out and wrapped his arm around Serenity’s shoulder. He comforted gently, “Seren, Liberty will be fine. Don’t worry too much.”
“Why did I have to go back to my hometown today? If I hadn’t gone back…”
Even if Serenity did not go back to her hometown, she would be in her bookstore.
Sonny started school today, and Jim was responsible for picking him up and dropping him off.
“Seren, even if you didn’t go back to your hometown, you couldn’t have protected Liberty when the incident happened. We were prepared to protect her, but she was still harmed… We didn’t protect her well.”
