Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 101
Moreover, there was only one bed here. Since Elliot was sick, Avery planned to give him the bed. After taking a shower, she came to the sofa and sat down. She thought of spending the night on the couch tonight. However, Elliot also came over half an hour later. As he had slept the entire afternoon, it was understandable that Elliot was not sleepy, and Avery could not just force him to go to sleep.
On the other side of the video call, the technical department manager said, “You’ve been dragging this, causing me to lose sleep for a week! Avery, let’s have a heart-to-heart talk!”
The head of the development department chimed in, “I also have insomnia every day! Not only can I not sleep well, but I can’t even eat!”
“I’ve been losing more and more hair lately! My hair was never much to begin with!” The person in charge of the personnel department followed.
These old men were just telling sob stories to force Avery to decide immediately.
Elliot frowned and directly snatched Avery’s phone.
Avery was shocked. “Hey! I’m on a video call! Give me back my phone!”
She moved toward him, trying to grab the phone back.
“Who’s that man?! He looks familiar?”
“He’s Avery’s boyfriend, right! He’s still with Avery even though it’s so late! It must be her boyfriend!”
“Oh… This guy looks like someone…”
On the other side of the video call, the three old men discussed the identity of the man.
“Avery, how do you hang up? I can’t find the button.” Elliot took her phone and studied it for a few seconds, and because he could not find the button, he returned the phone to her.
After Avery got her phone back, she immediately hung up the call.
“Who told you to take my phone?!” Avery scolded.
He raised his eyelids and said lazily, “Their voices are annoying. It’s nine o’clock in the evening, not nine in the morning.”
“If you think it’s annoying, you can go back to your home! This is my house.” Avery frowned, took the phone, and walked toward the bedroom.
Elliot followed her.
At the same time, the three managers had a private video call.
“Don’t you think Avery’s boyfriend looks like someone… Have you noticed it? That man looks like Elliot Foster!”
“I haven’t seen Elliot in person, only pictures.”
“I’ve seen Elliot in person, but I was sitting in the back row at least a few hundred meters away from him.”
“Haven’t you two heard his voice before? That man, he sounds like Elliot.”
“We haven’t even met him before. How do you know what he sounds like?”
“It must be Elliot! I swear! No wonder she is stalling with Charlie. It looks like there is a better option!”
“If that’s the case, then Avery’s really impressive! She hid her ability and fame well, even secretly getting bigger deals!”
“I’ll have to apologize to Avery! I text her almost every day, accusing her of being ignorant!”
“There’s no need to be so anxious! Let me confirm with her if that man is Elliot!”
Avery was in her bedroom, battling a splitting headache. She had to lie down on her bed. Elliot, who saw her lying in bed, chose to lay down beside her. He turned off the light in the room.
Avery had her eyes closed, but she was breathing heavily. It meant she was in a bad mood.
Elliot said, “I’ve seen one of the three people in the video call with you just now.”
Avery looked at him sideways. “Who?”
Elliot answered, “The chubby guy with glasses.”
Avery seemed indifferent. “Oh… So what if you met him before?”
Elliot replied, “I think he recognized me, so we can’t hide our relationship anymore.” After a pause, he continued, “I’ll pay three hundred million. Tell Charlie and see if he follows.”
“Are you crazy!” Avery raised her foot and kicked him. “Do you think this is an auction!”
