A Beautiful Misunderstanding

Chapter 43 No Marriage Without A House

The next day, when Lucy and Bob came to visit Essie, she was still fast asleep. She was woken up by the doorbell ringing, so she went to open the door groggily and went back to lie on the bed.

Lucy looked around and asked, "Where is Zac?"

"Asleep in his room," she replied in a daze. After getting off the Ferris wheel, they went to see a movie and didn't come home until midnight.

"I just saw that he isn't in the room. He must be out." Lucy paused and added casually, "You two didn't sleep together?"

Upon hearing Lucy's words, Essie became wide awake, scared. While she was thinking about how to answer, she suddenly heard Bob's voice. "You didn't have a fight with Zac, did you?" he asked.

"No, we are completely fine." Essie quickly came up with an excuse. "I don't really sleep well at night. I either snatch the quilt from him or kick him out of the bed. Because of that, he can't sleep well beside me and it has affected his work. So we decided to sleep separately on most days. We sleep together on weekends."

Hearing her explanation, Lucy looked at her and mumbled, "Essie, since you two are living with each other, it is more or less inevitable to have some conflicts between the two of you, but you have to overcome that. Sleeping in different beds will have an emotional impact on both of you." She said that sincerely.

"I know, mom!" It was so embarrassing for her to discuss this topic with her mother. Luckily for her, her mother didn't live in there, otherwise, she would probably force them to sleep in the same room.

Lucy didn't say anything more. After all, she had only come to invite Essie and Zac to have dinner with Essie's aunt.

"Call Zac right now to see if he has time."

"Okay." Essie nodded and took up the phone from the bedside table. Just as she was about to make the call, she heard the door open. It was Zac. He came in with breakfast in his hands.

When he saw his mother-in-law and father-in-law, he quickly put down the things in his hands and went to pour them some tea, "Uncle, aunt, have you had breakfast?"

"Yes, we have." Lucy smiled and winked at his husband. Bob took the hint and coughed. "We are a family now. Can you change the way you call us?" he said.

Zac was very happy to hear that they had finally accepted him as their son-in-law!

"Dad, mom!" He immediately corrected himself.

Essie glanced at her mother and father by her side, and she felt a mixture of both joy and sadness.copy right hot novel pub
