Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 151
“Thank you for your concern, but I don’t need it,” Elliot said.
Met with a sharp rejection, Chelsea turned and left.
The sound of a phone ringing pierced through the silent living room.
When Elliot saw Avery’s name flashing on his phone screen, his temples twitched suddenly.
It was almost noon.
He had agreed to meet Avery that morning.
He received Chelsea’s call while he was getting ready to leave and had completely forgotten about the meeting.
Elliot answered the call and said, “I’m sorry. Something came up, and I couldn’t make it. I’ll get my lawyer to handle the divorce proceedings.”
Avery was taken aback, then said calmly, “Alright. It’s the weekend, so we can’t do it now. Ask your lawyer to contact me on Monday.”
“Alright,” Elliot said.
They were done discussing the matter, and it was logical that the call would come to an end, but Elliot prolonged it. “I will sell Tate Towers to you.”
He no longer had the desire to take revenge on Avery.
All he wanted was for Shea’s illness to be treated.
Shea was Elliot’s fraternal twin sister, but she had a mental disability.
Their father was very strict with children.
He could not accept having a disabled child, and he refused to allow others to use her to turn the Foster family into a laughing stock.
Shea’s birth had been a calamity.
Nobody ever knew that the Fosters had a daughter named Shea.
Elliot’s mind was filled with memories of his father abusing Shea during his drunken bouts.
His sister had suffered through a lot…
She had even come close to d***h once.
She had not escaped her father’s clutches till their mother moved her and hid her.
Elliot would always feel sorry for his sister.
To him, Shea was the source of the deep pain and concern in his heart.
He was willing to do whatever it took in exchange for his sister’s health.
He hoped that Shea could one day enjoy life as a normal person.
With the advancement in medicine, Elliot had searched for famous doctors from all over the world in hopes of finding a cure for his sister.
Zoe Sanford’s appearance gave him a new sliver of hope.
Avery felt an indescribable sense of disappointment.
Elliot had spent the last four years refusing to sign the papers, and now, instead of meeting her, he had given in and agreed to sign them.
However, now that she was sitting here waiting for him, he entrusted his lawyer to deal with things.
It was hard for Avery not to think that this was Elliot’s idea of revenge!
At the same time, he had agreed to sell Tate Tower to her without making things difficult or asking a high price.
This was not vengeance.
This was indifference.
Elliot no longer cared for her at all.
Avery walked out of the cafe and into the blistering sunlight.
The temperature in her car was over a hundred degrees when she got in, but Avery felt nothing.
She sat in a daze, and her mind was empty of thought. It was almost as if she had destroyed all the memories she had of Elliot.
Avery snapped back to reality when her phone rang.
She took a deep breath, composed herself, then answered the call
“Hey, Wesley. What’s up?”
“Avery, do you remember Zoe Sanford?” Wesley asked with a hint of mirth in his voice. “Back then, Professor Hough chose you over her to be his protege, because she couldn’t come close to you.”
Avery’s cheeks flushed as she said, “Why are you bringing this up? I don’t know her that well.”
“Well, Elliot Foster met with her. He thinks she’s the one Professor Hough was talking about.” Wesley snickered mockingly. “Zoe Sanford can’t help the person he’s trying to save.”
