In zsh, If i press enter before the read is finished, then the last echo command gets executed. Great!

Code:
read -t 10 && echo 'bye'

But, if i DON'T press enter, then the final echo does NOT get executed.

How can i ensure the final echo gets executed if i allow the read to finish?

thx

Update, some progress:
Read may behave a bit differently in zsh.

But this doesn't work either:
Code:
bash -c "read -t 5 && echo 'bye'"
