Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 283
Shea knew she could no longer hide it, yet she was afraid as her brother looked so serious and stern. So, she lowered her head and said nothing.
At the Starry River Villa, Mike was in the hall boasting about how great his alcohol tolerance was, and how easily he had gotten Chad drunk!
He also paraded how easy it was to lie and fool Chad.
“Avery, I’m great, right?” Mike was looking for praise. “Chad definitely reported it to his boss! Don’t worry. Elliot will not suspect you.”
Avery was peeling some apples. She passed them to him. “You finally have some brains.”
“Hey! That was uncalled for! I always have brains, please!” Mike angrily accepted the apple and took a hard bite. “I just don‘t like to think. Once I do, even Sherluck Helmes is no match for me.”
At that moment, Layla brought an album over.
“Mommy, who is this man? He‘s so handsome! I like him very much!”
Layla had come out of Avery‘s room. Avery looked at the album in Layla‘s hands. She immediately placed her knife down.
“Layla, why are you going through my things again?” Avery took the album and shut it.
Eric‘s photos were in the album. Avery was a fan of his.
“Mommy, if you didn‘t want me to see it, you should have locked it up!” Layla looked aggrieved. “Why won‘t you let me see it? I like that handsome man too!”
Hayden glanced at the album and said, “Infatuated fool.”
“Mommy likes him too! If you‘re calling me an infatuated fool, that means you‘re calling Mommy a fool too!” Layla retorted logically.
Hayden could not win, so he turned around and returned to his room.
Layla lay in Avery’s arms and said sweetly, “Mommy, if you‘re going to find a boyfriend in the future, use this handsome man as a benchmark. If you can bring such a handsome man home, Grandma and I won‘t object to it.”
Laura could not help but laugh when he heard what Layla said, Avery’s head hurt. She was just about to lecture her daughter when someone rang the doorbell.
It was nine at night. Other than Tammy, no one would usually come over to visit. However, Tammy never comes at night.
Mike was already at the door. He looked through the peephole.
“D**n! Avery! Your ex-husband is here!” Mike did not dare open the door. He quickly returned to the living area. “He has even brought someone over.”
Avery passed Layla to Laura. Laura immediately took Layla to the room.
“Shea is here too,” whispered Mike.
Avery furrowed her brows. Why did Elliot bring Shea over here so late at night?
She walked over to the door and opened it. Before she could say anything, Elliot asked Shea,” Is It here?”
Shea walked into the room. When she saw Avery‘s cold expression, Shea pursed her lips not daring to make a sound.
Elliot held on to Shea‘s hand and walked past Avery, entering the living area.
“Elliot—“Avery took a deep breath, turned around, and went after him.
“Shut up!” Elliot barked. He interrupted her and said, “Avery, when Shea went missing, was she here with you?”
Avery was speechless. He had still found out about it in the end.
Elliot saw the reaction on Avery‘s face and got his confirmation.
An ice–cold feeling rose from the bottom of his heart.
“How did she end up here? Why didn’t you tell me?” Elliot approached Avery and looked at her coldly. He enunciated each word, “Were you happy looking at me going crazy looking for her!”
