Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 131
Elliot’s legs had been recovering well, and he was able to move around more freely with a walking stick.
He got out of bed and walked into the closet to pick out his outfit for the day.
Most of his clothes were in dark shades and colors.
His brows furrowed as he took in the gloominess of his closet.
Elliot walked out of the closet after failing to pick out a suitable outfit, then gave Chad a call.
“Chad, I need a light-colored suit.”
“Of course, Sir. Are you looking for something casual or a formal suit?”
“Roger that. I’ll get it ready right away,” Chad said. “By the way, the jewelry designer you asked me to contact has finished the sketch you asked for. I’ve emailed it over to you. They can start working on it once you approve the sketch.”
“Alright,” Elliot responded.
He hung up, then entered his study and turned on the computer.
The upcoming New Year’s Eve was the first one that he was going to spend with Avery, and he wanted to give her something special to commemorate it.
He clicked on Chad’s email and opened up the sketch of the custom diamond ring he had commissioned.
The ring was designed to resemble a snowflake, as Avery was like a snowflake to him – pure and angelic.
Over at Avonsville University, Avery and Tammy were having lunch after their morning rehearsals.
“Why did you back out of the dance performance?” Tammy asked.
“Dancing is too tiring. I’ll just focus on my song,” Avery answered, then glanced at her phone and asked, “Is your boyfriend coming to the concert?”
“He wanted to, but he won’t be able to get in. He’s not a student here, anyway. There’s no way they’d let him in!”
Avery nodded in response.
“Is your husband coming? I heard that both of you have been stuck at the hip! Is that true? You never reply to my texts when I ask you about it,” Tammy grumbled.
“Did Jun tell you that? When did he get so nosy? You should pressure him into focusing on his career and making more money.”
“All I want is to be in a lovey-dovey relationship right now! By the way, did you tell your husband about going to graduate school abroad? I told Jun to keep it to himself, so I don’t think he’s told Elliot.”
The light in Avery’s eyes dimmed.
Tammy took one look at her and found her answer.
“Why won’t you tell him about it? Are you worried that he’ll stop you from going?”
Avery took a sip of water, then said, “I’ll tell him after the new year!”
“Alright! So, is he coming to the concert or not? Ask him to bring my Jun along if he is!”
Tammy sighed and said, “Yet you won’t admit that your relationship is going well! He is ditching his company’s party and coming to our concert! Doesn’t that tell you that he finds you more important than work?! Jun, on the other hand, wouldn’t miss the company party for the world! So, your husband won’t have to trouble himself with my Jun.”
Avery shuddered as goosebumps appeared all over her body.
“Can you please stop saying ‘your husband’ and ‘my Jun’? When did you get so cheesy?”
“I’m not wrong, am I? Elliot Foster is your husband, and Jun might not be my husband yet, but isn’t it normal for couples to give each other pet names?”
Avery ordered some food, then passed the menu back to the waiter.
“Do you think he’ll go on stage and give you flowers after your performance?” Tammy asked, suddenly looking to the night’s concert with anticipation.
“How’s he supposed to get up there? With his walking stick?”
Tammy sighed, then said, “What a pity! I was hoping to see the two of you go public with your relationship in front of the whole college!”
“You need to quit it with all your romantic dramas,” Avery said, shattering Tammy’s fantasy.
“What kind of relationship do you two have?” Tammy said with furrowed brows. “You’re so boring! There’s no fun at all!”
