Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 146
The composure on Chad’s face disappeared the moment he laid eyes on Avery.
The one who wanted to buy Tate Tower was none other than Avery Tate!
Avery’s mind was also in a frenzy.
What was Elliot’s assistant doing there?
Could it be…
When Fred saw the two men arrive, he got up to his feet and greeted the property manager.
“Good morning, Mr. Powell,” Fred said, then glanced at Chad and asked, “And this is?”
“This is Mr. Elliot Foster’s assistant, Chad Rayner,” answered Mr. Powell. “Mr. Foster was the one who asked me to arrange for the purchase of the building four years ago.”
Fred nodded, then greeted Chad, “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Rayner.”
Chad shook Fred’s hand and said, “Likewise.”
“Let me present Miss Avery Tate,” said Fred. “Miss Tate is my late boss’s eldest daughter. She’s the one who’s interested in acquiring Tate Tower. Back when Tate Industries went under, she moved abroad for business and has now returned in hopes of buying the old building and restoring the company.”
Avery felt as if she was surrounded by an eerie silence. She could not hear a thing that Fred had said.
She found the entire thing absurd.
Life was once again playing a sick joke on her!
As if Elliot would sell Tate Tower if he found out that she was the buyer!
From what Avery learned from Tammy, Elliot probably despised her.
“Gentlemen, I’d like to speak to Miss Avery alone. Would you mind stepping out for a moment?” Chad asked as he smiled politely.
Fred immediately shot to his feet.
“I’ll wait outside,” he said to Avery, then made his way out the door with Mr. Powell trailing along behind him.
In an instant, Avery and Chad were the only two people left in the cafe.
An awkward tension filled the air.
Avery picked up her cup of coffee and took a sip.
Chad ordered a cup of Americano, then turned to Avery and asked casually, “Didn’t you go abroad for graduate school, Miss Tate? How did you make enough money to afford a whole building?”
“That’s my personal business, and I’d rather keep that to myself,” Avery responded calmly.
Chad adjusted his glasses, then went straight to the point.
“Mr. Foster will go through with the divorce if you meet him face to face. Similarly, I’m unable to comment on your interest in buying Tate Tower. You’re going to have to take that up with Mr. Foster.”
“I don’t want to see him,” Avery said bluntly.
“Is guilt what’s stopping you from seeing him, Miss Tate? All Mr. Foster wants is to end things with you face to face,” Chad said breezily. “He no longer loves you, so you won’t have to worry about him pestering you when you meet.”
Avery felt as if someone had plunged a sharp knife into her heart, but she had to maintain her composure. “I understand. I’ll meet him when I have the time. Also, I’m the last person who would feel any guilt in this matter.”
She then stood up and went to settle the check.
Chad watched Avery walk away. She was slender. Her final words echoed in his head.
It was true that there was no trace of guilt on her face.
Was there more than what met the eye between Avery and his boss?
After Avery left, Chad returned to the office to report back to Elliot.
When Elliot received the news that Avery was the one who wanted to buy Tate Tower, his expression did not waver one bit.
He had already figured that out by himself.
