Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 25
“There’s a close friend that I used to know. She needs a nanny to take care of her grandchildren, and the pay is very high. I thought about it. A job is just a job anyway, so I went to try it out. Today is the third day of work, and everything is fine so far. I can earn a thousand and five hundred a month!”
“Your father is already gone, and he didn’t leave you with any property. I can’t drag you down,” Laura added.
Avery’s tears fell uncontrollably once she heard it.
“A close friend of yours is quite rich, isn’t she?” Her voice was a little hoarse, but now that she started crying, her voice became even hoarser.
“Being a nanny for a friend… it must be tough!”
“It’s not tough! Now as long as I can make money, I’m satisfied. My pride isn’t worth as much! Moreover, the rich will not necessarily stay rich their whole lives. Maybe I’m not as rich as my friend now, but maybe my daughter will make a lot of money in the future.”
Laura took a few tissues and wiped Avery’s tears.
“Mom… you don’t have to go to work. I can do a part-time job. I can work next year…” Avert burst into tears.
“You’re pregnant now, how are you going to work? Avery, if you really want to keep the child, we can’t keep on like this.” Laura frowned and was very puzzled. “Why does Elliot not want this child? It’s his own flesh and blood!”
“He likes another woman.”
“Really? Then why didn’t he marry that woman?” Laura’s face was ashen, and she felt sorry for her daughter.
“I have no idea.”
“It’s alright. Don’t be afraid. If it really doesn’t work, let’s hide and give birth to this baby. We keep it from him.”
Laura took Avery into her arms and patted her shoulder lightly.
Three days later.
Avery received a call from Cole.
He asked her to meet him.
After thinking for a few seconds, she agreed.
His purpose for a meetup, must be because of the child.
Avery stared at Cole’s face several times.
He had several band-aids on his face, and even with the band-aids on, the large bruises were still visible.
“Stop looking at me. My uncle did this. If you hadn’t said that the child you were carrying was mine, my uncle wouldn’t have beaten me.” Cole said in a dull tone. Resigned, he continued, “Just treat it as my repayment for you! But when you asked me to elope with you, I really didn’t have the courage.”
“Cole Foster, your problem is not that you didn’t elope with me. If I don’t bring up the matter between you and Cassandra now, are you going to hide it from me forever?” Avery picked up the glass of water and took a sip.
“When did you find out?” Cole looked at her in surprise.
“No wonder you never replied to my messages or answered my calls.”
Avery took a deep breath and asked, “Do you know where Cassandra is now? Her uncle took the money from my dad’s company. I won’t let it go easily.”
“She’s traveling around the world… It’s useless to find her for what her uncle did.”
“Isn’t she traveling around the world with the money of my dad’s company?!”
“That’s her dad too. Avery, I know you’re angry, but please calm down. Don’t worry about the mess that your dad left behind.” Cold stretched out a big palm, trying to hold her hand, but she quickly avoided it.
“Avery, I’m sorry. Cassandra and I are not like what you think. I have never loved her. The reason that I’m with her… is because she seduced me. Men can’t control their lust and instinct most of the time… The woman I love the most in my heart has always been you.”
Avery got goosebumps in disgust.
“You may not know it, but my injuries are more serious than they seem, but I don’t blame you.” Cole said miserably. “I was in the hospital for a few days, and I haven’t been discharged yet. I came to you in such a hurry because I wanted to ask you, just whose child is it that you’re carrying in your belly?”
“The child is gone. What’s the point of asking this again?” Avery replied.
“Oh… Avery, let’s work together!” Cole said his true purpose. “You still have a chance to approach him now. You find a way to k**l him, and when he dies, no one can bully us again.”
