Married at First Sight (Serenity and Zachary) novel Chapter 8

Chapter 8

Zachary was careful to watch his weight, refusing to let himself go and become overweight.

It was hard to shed the pounds.

Serenity smiled. “You’re fit, Mr. York.

“So… I guess I’ll go back to bed?”

“Sure,” Zachary replied.


Serenity wished him goodnight before turning on her heel to leave.

“Hang on, Se… Serenity.”

Zachary called after her.

Pausing, Serenity turned her head around and asked, “Yes?”

Zachary looked at her and said, “Please don’t walk around in your pajamas next time.”

She was not wearing a bra underneath her pajamas. Unfortunately, his eagle eyes picked up on that.

They were husband and wife anyway, but what if someone else caught her in her pajamas?

The last thing he wanted was for other men to see through his wife’s body.

Red in the face, Serenity bolted back to her room and slammed the door shut.

Zachary, “…”

She was embarrassed before he could feel awkward for her.

Zachary took a moment to sit before heading to the master bedroom. He bought the furnished house at the last minute. It was move-in ready.

Nevertheless, his bedroom had not been sorted out due to the rush.

He was quite impressed that Serenity knew how to take a hint instead of brazenly demanding to sleep in the same room.

Thank goodness fulfillment of marital obligations was not asked of him.

The wee hours of the morning went by uneventfully for the married couple.

The next day, Serenity woke up at six o’clock in the morning as usual.

Before, she would make breakfast and tidy up the place after she got up. If time permitted, she would help her sister hang the laundry out to dry.

Serenity had taken the role of a nanny in the years she stayed at Liberty’s place, mainly because she was trying to lighten the load off her sister. However, her brother-in-law took it for granted and ordered her around like a nanny.

She woke up today and stared at the unfamiliar bedroom that she spent the night in. As memories flooded back into her mind, Serenity murmured, “I must be half-asleep to think I’m still at my sister’s place. This is my home. I don’t have to get up now.”

Serenity laid back down to return to dreamland.

It was a shame that she could not adjust her body clock though. Serenity could not sleep in even if she tried.

She might as well get up since her tummy was rumbling.

After a change of clothes and a wash-up, Serenity walked out of her room and took a glance at Zachary’s bedroom door. By the looks of the closed door, he must still be sleeping.

Well, it was hard to get up at this hour since he was home late last night.

Serenity wandered into the kitchen and stared at the empty room. A brief silence later, she turned around and made her way out.

She had placed an order for kitchenware yesterday, but the stuff had not arrived.

Had she known, Serenity would have bought them in a store rather than online.

While moving house yesterday, Serenity remembered seeing a breakfast place in the neighborhood.

Serenity decided to get breakfast takeouts.

She wondered what Zachary fancied eating.
