Married at First Sight (Serenity and Zachary) novel Chapter 20

Chapter 20 “Let’s go.”

Zachary drew close and faintly uttered.

“Kay.” Serenity went with him.

As the couple walked together without a word, Serenity wanted to make conversation. However, that ever solemn and tensed face with an invisible “keep out” sign on that forehead of his was off-putting.

His talent would go to waste if he did not become a school teacher. With a face like that, he could easily keep the children in check.

A short while later, they arrived at the market. Serenity directed Zachary to park the car in an empty lot. After getting down from the car, she told him, “Come on. Let’s have breakfast.”

Without a peep, Zachary followed behind her.

The great Zachary York was out of place for his first trip to the market, but he rolled with it and hid his discomfort from Serenity.

The pair ordered a bagel sandwich each, and Serenity requested extra toppings for herself. Still, the bagel sandwich did not quell Serenity’s hunger.

Zachary took his time with his food, observing exemplary table manners to the tee. It was a mouthwatering and appetizing experience to watch him eat. If it were not because she was afraid Zachary would criticize her binge eating, she could have ordered some greasy bacon and fried potatoes.

“You can order whatever you want if you’re not full.”

Zachary could tell she wanted more. With that appetite of hers, a bagel sandwich with extra toppings was barely scratching the surface.

Last night at the party, she did not stop shoving food down her throat for over an hour.

Not only that, but she also brought cranberries home for dessert.

Zachary frowned. “Hehe. Don’t be mad. I’m complimenting the way you eat. Just by looking at you, I feel like you’re feasting on a gourmet meal. I got the craving to join in.”

Zachary stared at Serenity speechlessly before turning his attention back to his bagel sandwich,

After the couple was done eating, Serenity led him around. Instead of heading straight to the florist, Serenity went to a nearby 24-hour ATM for cash withdrawals. Zachary watched as Serenity took out the debit card from her purse. Serenity had a good memory and had already memorized the PIN he wrote down. Inserting the card into the teller, Serenity punched the PIN and checked on the account balance. It was ten thousand dollars. Ten thousand dollars were enough for her to get essential houseware.
