Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 128
Avery violently shook off Wanda’s grip on her arm.
She recognized the car as Elliot’s and strode over to it.
When the door to the driver’s side opened up, the bodyguard got out and charged straight at Wanda.
Avery was afraid that he was about to strike Wanda.
She rushed to the bodyguard’s side and held him back.
“Don’t touch her! Her daughter just died. It’s only natural that she’d be emotional.
“Ha… I guess you haven’t been kicked out of the Foster family yet! You’re pretty good at seducing men, aren’t you?” Wanda mocked.
The bodyguard raised his arm in preparation to slap Wanda across the face.
Avery stopped him once again and said, “Get back in the car. I’ll get in after a word with her.”
The bodyguard shot an intimidating glare at Wanda, warning her not to lay a finger on Avery.
Wanda felt a chill run down her spine, but she had to put up with it.
Now that her daughter was d**d, she had to stay alive!
That was the only way she could avenge Cassandra.
Once the bodyguard returned to the car, Avery turned to Wanda and said, “Say what you want about the m******r, but don’t you dare bring up my father! You’re the first person he’d go after if he came back from the d**d. You gave your brother a position at Dad’s company and embezzled three hundred million dollars in a matter of years… I’ll make sure you pay back every penny you took from him!”
“That was my brother’s work. What does it have to do with me? Did you think that I wanted the Tate family to go bankrupt?!” Wanda scowled. “I spent all those years with your father. Do you really think I’d do that to him?!”
“You say that, and yet you’re using the money your brother stole to live it up abroad. I doubt you’d have ever come back here if it weren’t for Cassandra’s d***h!”
Wanda’s face turned scarlet with fury.
“Shaun told me everything!” she yelled. “You took your father’s Super Brain program for yourself! Shaun said that your father spent hundreds of millions of dollars to develop the program. What right do you have to chastise me?!”
“Of course, I have the right,” Avery responded. “The things I have were given to me by my father, but you stole from him! You’re all a bunch of thieves! I’ll make sure your brother coughs up every last penny that he took from Dad. I’ll make sure he rots in prison!”
Wanda’s blood pressure was soaring, but she had no words to fight back.
All she could do in the end was watch Avery get in the car and speed off.
The moment she shut the car door, Avery quickly composed herself.
She turned to Elliot and asked, “What are you doing here?”
Elliot passed her a bottle of water and answered, “I knew Wanda was coming. I was afraid she would pick a fight with you.”
“Am I that weak?” Avery asked as she took a sip of water.
“You only put up a strong front in front of me,” Elliot replied blandly.
Avery glared at him, then said, “I’m hungry. I don’t have the energy to argue.”
“Should we eat out?” Elliot suggested. “What do you feel like?”
“Anything’s fine,” Avery said, then a thought suddenly popped into her head and she added, “I feel like having my mom’s cooking.”
“Should we go to your mom’s place?”
Avery glanced over at Elliot’s legs, then said, “Forget it! The building isn’t wheelchair accessible. It won’t be convenient for you.”
“We could head home and get the walking stick.”
“If we’re going home, we might as well just eat at home. Why bother going to my mom’s?”
“You said you wanted to eat your mom’s cooking.”
“I was just saying that.”
Avery did not expect him to take her words that seriously.
Elliot pulled out his phone and made a call.
Avery stared at him and wondered who he was calling.
A moment later, Laura’s voice came through his phone.
