Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 119
At the door to the guest room, Avery said, “I’ll take you back to the room. I can come back here to rest after that. I’ll join you after I wake up.”
Elliot entered the room and said, “I’m tired, too.”
Avery was stunned.
“You didn’t eat anything! You should go eat-“
“Drop it. Get some rest.”
How could Avery possibly drop this?
She did not feel good about letting him starve on his birthday.
She rushed back to the private room to get Elliot something to eat.
Everyone in the room happily helped her.
“Get some more meat, Miss Tate! You have to make sure he eats it all! He lost so much weight after his accident.”
“We’ll leave the boss to you, Miss Tate! Take care of him for us!”
“Get some rest after you eat, Miss Tate. We won’t bother you at all!”
Avery left the room with flushed cheeks and returned to the guest room with a tray of food.
Elliot was texting someone.
Avery placed the tray of food in front of him.
“Don’t you want to take the sweater off? It looks like you’re sweating,” she said. “I shouldn’t have used such thick yarn.”
Elliot placed his phone down, then took off his sweater.
“I can use it as a coat.”
Avery took the sweater from him and hung it in the closet.
“I got a bunch of food for you,” she said. “Eat as much as you can.”
She then sat down on the bed and watched his slender back.
It was true that he had lost quite a bit of weight.
On the other hand, her own weight was steadily increasing.
She was already five months pregnant at this point.
Her appetite was getting better. She was watching her diet, but she could not prevent her weight from increasing, not with the two growing babies within her.
Avery had planned on helping Elliot get in bed after he was done eating, but she fell asleep before he was done.
Elliot finished his food, then made his way over to the bed.
He watched Avery’s tired, sleeping face, and could not help but gently caress her cheeks.
By the time Avery woke up from her deep slumber, it was dark outside.
She shot up and saw Elliot sitting in his wheelchair, with his deep, dark eyes staring straight at her.
Avery blushed, then took a deep breath and asked, “Don’t… Don’t tell me you were watching me sleep the whole time?”
A tint of redness appeared on Elliot’s face.
He changed the subject and said, “Are you hungry? It’s seven now. I told them to carry on with dinner. Let’s eat something else.
Avery agreed, then went to the bathroom to wash her face.
The night brought with it a noticeable drop in temperature in Aryadelle compared to daylight.
It was around 40 degrees Fahrenheit in the day, and then it was 30 degrees at night.
Avery felt chilled to the bone as she wheeled Elliot outside.
“Let’s get some ribs!”
“Sure,” Elliot responded.
There were not many people on the streets, but they were surrounded by a plethora of restaurants.
Avery, who did not have lunch earlier, was now suddenly overcome by a wave of hunger.
“Look, it’s cotton candy! Wait here. I’m going to go get one. I haven’t had it in forever!” Avery said, then made her way toward the cotton candy stall up ahead.
Elliot smiled softly at the sight of Avery’s excitement.
Moments later, Avery was grinning from ear to ear as she held the cotton candy in her hands.
Suddenly, she saw a black car speeding at an alarming rate from the corner of her eye, and it was clearly charging in Elliot’s direction!
The cotton candy fell from her hands as she ran with all her might towards Elliot, her shrilling cry echoing in the cold air… “Elliot! Lookout!”
