“It’s our date, why would I bring him along?” Tammy poured a glass of wine and handed it to her. “What did you do last night? You have really bad dark circles under your eyes.”

Avery raised her glass and took a sip, “I stayed up late last night watching dramas!”

“You wish I believe that. Fess up, you have the fakest forced smile plastered across your face,” Tammy said. “Are you still into Elliot, and that is why you couldn’t sleep?”

Avery almost spat out her wine. “Tammy, do I look so gullible?”

Tammy nodded vigorously, “Although you make a lot of money, you’re still really gullible.”

Ben was pouring Elliot a glass of wine at their table in the corner of the restaurant.

This was the only high-class restaurant closest to the hospital.

“Elliot, I won’t ask about you and Shea. I asked you out to have a drink with you,” Ben said. “By the way, is Dr. Sanford that serves you really that good?”

Elliot took the wine glass and took a sip, “She performed the operation on Shea, but she’s not awake yet.”

“Oh… If it works, how much are you going to give her?” Ben raised his brows, and his eyes were filled with curiosity.

“I’ll see how much she wants.”

“What if she doesn’t want money but you?” Ben said. “Avery can’t accept that your heart belongs to Shea, but some women don’t care about that. For example, Chelsea. If Dr. Sanford doesn’t care either and wants to date you, what are you going to do?”

Elliot glanced at Ben, “She lives and works abroad. She only came here for a short time on vacation.”

“If you’re willing to marry her, she can completely give up living and working abroad,” Ben said. “You’re too attractive to women.”

“Dr. Sanford is not such a person,” Elliot said firmly.

Ben nodded and did not mention Zoe Sanford again.

“Elliot, look at that table in front. Isn’t that Tammy?” Ben pointed in a direction. “That woman sitting opposite Tammy looks like Avery, or at least from the back it looks like it could be her.”

Ben squinted his eyes. He stood up once he was done speaking and walked over to the table.

Elliot looked in the direction that he was heading.

It was indeed, Avery.

He could recognize her back at only a glance.

Although they had not seen each other for more than four years, Chad said that she had not changed much.

“Tammy, why didn’t you come with Jun?” Although Ben addressed Tammy, he was looking at Avery. “Huh? Is this Miss Tate?”

Avery was startled to suddenly see Ben.

Ben looked at the glass in her hand and sighed, “You didn’t drink alcohol back then, but now you drink? It just so happened that Elliot and I are drinking too. Let’s have a drink together!”

Ben did not wait for Avery to respond. He walked back to his table to get some wine and two wine glasses. He then dragged Elliot over.

Avery sat in stunned silence for a moment.

Tammy frowned. Dissatisfied, she said, “I’m having dinner with my best friend! What makes you think you can suddenly join us?”

“The last time you had dinner with me, you had affectionately called me your brother. Don’t you remember?” said Ben, teasing her. “Elliot and Avery were formerly married. Surely, they can still be friends despite their divorce. Isn’t that right Miss Tate?”

Avery scratched her head in embarrassment.


Even if she had plenty to drink, it was impossible for her to remain friends with Elliot.

“Avery, I didn’t mean to stand you up.” Elliot stood beside her, holding a wine glass in one hand while his other hand was buried in his pocket.

He looked at her with his deep eyes.

She had not changed from the last time he had seen her.

However, she was more feminine now.

“You don’t need to explain anything to me. I’m not angry.” Avery met his eyes with a smile. “I have something to handle at the moment. I have to go.”

She got up and made to leave.

However, Elliot stood in front of her like a solid wall with no intention of budging.
