Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1483 | [Serenity & Zachary]
If Old Mrs. Lewis were alive, she would not stop Duncan from pursuing Liberty.
In Duncan’s words, his granny only wanted him to be happy. If he truly loved Liberty, his granny would definitely support him to pursue Liberty.
“Ms. Harmon, you don’t have fantasies about me still, do you?”
Lily responded, There’s no such thing. I now know what kind of person you are, Duncan. Since you don’t love me, why should I harbor fantasies about you? You’re not the only outstanding man in this world.
“Why should I cling to you when you don’t belong to me? Wouldn’t it be good for me to find someone else? I can also find more than one man.
“Alright, then I’ll stop acting too. I’ll have dinner with Mrs. Lewis later and make things clear, then I’ll move out of your house and live in Wiltspoon Hotel. We might not end up as a couple, but we can still be friends.”
Lily was well-intentioned.
Even so, Duncan was also reasonable.
It would be better for Lily to make things clear to Mrs. Lewis and move out of their house so Mrs. Lewis would stop having ideas about her.
It was not that Lily did not like Duncan, but it was the other way around.
There were many outstanding young men in Wiltspoon. For all Lily knew, she could meet her true love. If she could not meet one in Wiltspoon, she could go home and pick one slowly.
If she could not find a good man, she could still live a comfortable life on her own.
“Duncan, you should go back to work. I’m going to drive.”
Lily took the initiative to hang up the phone.
Serenity did not know these things.
In the afternoon, she informed several of her part-timers who were helping her knit crafts to come over to get the materials.
School was out close to the evening and they walked out in groups. Seeing how they were full of vigor, envied their youthfulness.
After being busy for some time, Serenity started to shift the shelves at the front of the store inside.
Mr. Charles was carrying his big bowl again, scooping up mouthfuls of food as he walked and wandered over to Serenity’s store.
“Serenity, you’re closing the store so early today?”
Serenity hummed and explained, “Jasmine is treating us to dinner.”
“Oh, right. Jasmine and Mr. Bucham are engaged. We haven’t gotten the chance to congratulate her.”
“Jasmine will come tomorrow. It won’t be too late for you to congratulate her then, Mr. Charles.”
Serenity watched Mr. Charles eat and asked, “Did Mrs. Charles let you have vegetables only?”
“Meat has been expensive lately. Since we bought less meat, I’ll let the elderly and children have them while I have the greens. In fact, vegetables are also expensive now. We almost can’t afford to eat them anymore. If we lived on a farm and grew vegetables, we’d be self-sufficient and can save some money.
“Everything in the city costs money. As much as we try to live frugally, there’s always a sum of money spent for our monthly expenditure.”
After complaining about the recent meat prices, Mr. Charles asked with concern, “Is your sister feeling better?”
Sonny’s abduction caused too much of a stir in Wiltspoon. People like Mr. Charles were bound to know.
