Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1404 | [Serenity & Zachary]
Duncan had no idea he cared so much about Liberty.
He always thought that he liked Sonny and was nice to Liberty because of the little guy.
After knowing that Liberty was stabbed a few times by the bad guy, Duncan was heartbroken, and it was difficult to describe the pain. As slow as he was, he came to understand that he had long developed feelings for Liberty.
Why did he like her?
He did not know either.
No wonder his friends always saw him and Liberty as a pair; outsiders had a better perception.
Duncan was not moved even when he faced the outstanding Lily. Instead, he wanted to run away. It was not that Lily was not good enough, but he had unknowingly had his heart set on Liberty.
When Chelsea, her husband, and her parents arrived at the hospital, they saw Duncan keeping watch outside the ward.
Duncan turned around when he heard footsteps. Seeing that it was Chelsea and her husband, his face turned gloomy, and he looked coldly at the Browns.
“Why are you here?”
Chelsea could not help but question Duncan.
Duncan asked coldly, “What does it matter to you that I’m here?”
Now that Liberty was free and had lost weight, it was normal to have pursuers.
Duncan had always been nice to Liberty.
The Browns felt that Duncan was extremely good to Sonny because he had improper thoughts about Liberty.
As Liberty had not slimmed down at that time, the Browns fooled and comforted themselves that Duncan would not take a fancy to her. After all, he was a CEO with a net worth of tens of billions of dollars, whereas she was a fat divorcee with a three–year–old son.
However, when the Browns saw Duncan keeping watch outside the ward now, they could not deceive themselves any longer. He truly liked Liberty.
Otherwise, he would not be guarding her ward late at night.
The Browns did not know what to feel.
“It’s late. What are you doing here instead of sleeping?” Duncan coldly questioned Chelsea in return.
“I came to see my sister–in-”
“Mrs. Repton, have you forgotten that Liberty and your brother are divorced? She’s no longer your sister–in–law, so please stop calling her that. She doesn’t want to hear you call her that either.”
Chelsea was lost for words.
Mrs. Brown tugged at her daughter and reminded her not to argue with Duncan. It would be useless.
Duncan was right. Liberty and Hank had long divorced, and Hank had remarried thereafter.
“How’s Liberty? Why isn’t Serenity watching over her sister here? Why are you here instead?” Chelsea asked. She was still displeased and did not want to see Duncan watching over Liberty.
Jessica was a vicious woman. Chelsea would definitely persuade her brother to divorce Jessica as she wanted to get him to remarry Liberty.
Now, Liberty had a new pursuer. Duncan’s face was scarred, but he had a good family background and had the upper hand as compared to Hank. Chelsea was unhappy because she felt that there was not a shred of hope left for her brother’s remarriage to Liberty.
