Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 230
Could there be another child in the house?!
Elliot took in a sharp breath!
He walked out of the room and saw Layla trembling at the top of the stairs with tears in her eyes.
It was Avery’s daughter!
When did she get in here?
How had he been unaware of her?
Could the mansion’s most advanced security system be useless against them?
Elliot suddenly remembered how they had only managed to get the mansion’s network back up and running two hours ago.
Layla was carrying a backpack in the shape of a bunny.
She held a bunny doll in one hand while her other hand gripped the banister. She sobbed as she carefully made her way down the stairs.
She did not notice Elliot following her.
The servants gathered at the bottom of the stairs and stared at the little girl, who had appeared out of thin air, in shock.
“Mommy… My Mommy’s gone… I’m crying so loud… but she’s not coming for me … Ahhh!”
Layla’s cries were continuous. They almost resembled the rhythmic sound of a train engine.
“Aren’t you Avery Tate’s daughter, little one?”
Mrs. Cooper walked over to Layla and carried her down the stairs.
Layla pouted and asked with teary eyes, “Did my Mommy and my brother leave?”
“They did! They left hours ago. When did you get here? Why didn’t we see you come in?”
Mrs. Cooper carried Layla over to the couch, then wiped her tears with a napkin.
She was a beautiful little girl and was the splitting image of Avery.
One could tell right away that she was Avery’s biological daughter.
However, Mrs. Cooper did not dare ask about the child’s father.
She reckoned that Elliot had already looked into it.
“I came in when nobody was around… I’ve been here for so long… I came to look for my Mommy! I miss her so much…” Layla sniffled. “Why didn’t they call for me when they left? Uncle Mike knew I was here…”
Elliot walked over to Layla and stood by her side. He glanced down at her little face.
“I don’t want you looking at me!” Layla cried as she shot a glare at Elliot, then turned her back on him.
Elliot’s mood instantly turned foul.
How dare she put on such a righteous face after sneaking into his home?!
This was how Avery brought up her children?!
At that moment, Shea emerged from her room.
When she saw Layla, she happily rushed over to her.
Shea remembered Layla, but she did not remember her name.
Once she was next to Layla, Shea offered her hand to her.
Layla lifted her gaze, then immediately frowned and glared at Shea.
As if that were not enough, Layla lifted her little chin and coldly huffed at her.
Not only did Layla’s behavior not drive Shea away, but Shea took Layla’s little hand in hers.
Elliot had a splitting headache.
Why did Shea like Avery and her children so much?!
Had they met before? Were they close?
Otherwise, why would she hold their hands every time they met?
Elliot was clueless!
“Go away!” Layla snapped disgustedly as she shook Shea’s hand off. “I don’t want to play with you!”
Shea was stunned, and tears began to form in her eyes.
Elliot’s heart ached at the sight.
Not only were Avery’s children rude, but they were also cruel!
What kind of sick joke was this?!
“Layla Tate! Take a look at whose house you’re in right now!” Elliot roared, trying to teach her a lesson. “Didn’t your mother teach you to knock before entering someone’s house? Also-“
