Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 103 – “My son has never lived in such a harsh environment since he was born… Never! What type of karma is this! It’s all my fault! Why did I get Avery to be his wife? There are so many women, yet I chose this vixen!”
In the room, Elliot’s breathing gradually became stable. Avery reached out and touched his forehead. Even though Elliot was clammy, his temperature was normal. As she was afraid that he would wake up thirsty at night, she got out of bed and poured a glass of water, and placed it on the table beside him.
When Avery woke up the following morning, Elliot was nowhere to be seen. She picked up her phone and checked the time.
It was already past eight in the morning.
Elliot sent her a message just after six in the morning, [I slept well last night, so I’ll leave first.]
Avery’s cheek instantly flushed. It was only a text from him, so why was she feeling warm? Then, she found the remote control and turned off the heater. After washing up and leaving the room, Laura called her for breakfast.
“What’s the situation between you and him now?” Laura passed her breakfast and utensils.
“What situation?” Avery pretended not to understand.
“Don’t pretend to be puzzled. Don’t you want to divorce him? I think the two of you can’t be separated.” Laura sat across from her and looked at her, adding, “He doesn’t want to divorce you at all, and he looks like he likes you a lot.”
Avery sighed, “Mom, so what if he likes me? My value shouldn’t be determined by a man.”
Laura was helpless. “But he won’t divorce you. What will you do?”
“If it really can’t work out, I’m going to study abroad.”
“Mom, let’s eat. The food won’t taste good if it’s cold.”
Avery felt that every breath she took was filled with his scent. After breakfast, she had to take a shower.
At the Foster mansion…
Elliot exited the bathroom wrapped in a towel. He walked to his closet and changed into his clothes before heading to the dining room for breakfast.
Mrs. Cooper was a little puzzled when she noticed that he was wearing fewer clothes. “Master Elliot, aren’t you cold?”
“I’m not cold, and I feel better today.”
“That’s great! The doctor will come over later. Let him examine you.”
“There’s no need for that. I’ll go to the company later.”
Elliot’s words shocked Mrs. Cooper. Before he had visited Avery yesterday, he looked haggard and sick, but today, he looked completely normal. Was taking all that m********n not as effective as spending the day with Avery?
At the Sterling Group…
When Elliot showed up at the company, several executives could not help but follow him to his office.
“Mr. Foster, are you fully recovered? Wasn’t it quite serious?”
“Blah, blah, blah! Mr. Foster just had a cold and a fever. How serious could it be? Since he’s here at the company, it means that he’s almost healed.”
“That’s right! Mr. Foster, if you feel uncomfortable, you can go back and rest at any time. We’ll send you an email if there’s anything urgent with the company. You can work from home.”
Elliot ignored their concern and turned to Chad. “Get Chelsea over.”
Chad called Chelsea immediately, and the others wisely retreated.
“Elliot, why did you come to work all of a sudden? Did the doctor allow you to come to work?” Chelsea was worried when she saw that he was looking unwell.
“Chelsea, your father’s birthday is coming up, right?”
Surprise flashed in Chelsea’s eyes, and she answered, “Yes, it’s this weekend. I didn’t tell you because you were sick.”
Elliot said, “I’ll be there.”
Chelsea smiled, and her heart was full of joy. “Okay! I was worried that you wouldn’t go! My dad will definitely be pleased to see you.”
“Chelsea, I have a wife. I’m attending your dad’s birthday party because your brother invited my wife,” Elliot explained, destroying all of her fantasies.
