Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 377
Chapter 377 There was a beautiful invitation letter on the office desk.
Avery opened the envelope and glanced at the contents of the letter.
It was an invitation to a summit.
Mike came. He saw her holding the invitation and said, “If you don’t want to go”. “I’ll go,” she said, before opening her purse to take out her lipstick. She began fixing her makeup.
Mike exclaimed, “You are provoked, aren’t you? Is that your new lipstick? It is such a bright color! You usually look quite gentle, but with that, you look like a queen. Wanda would be no match for you even if she multiplied herself by ten.”
Once Avery was done, she placed her powder and lipstick back in her purse and looked at Mike. “Are you coming with me?”
“Of course. I’ll be your driver.”
Elites of all fields had gathered for the summit. Upon Avery’s arrival, she was immediately invited backstage by the organizer.
“Miss Tate, we need you to give a speech later. You’ll need to speak for about twenty minutes. You might want to prepare your script.”
Avery nodded but soon realized that Mike had disappeared.
She had not prepared a script for the speech and there was not enough time to start preparing. She would have to improvise.
She walked out of the area that formed the backstage and glanced at the hall. There were people as far as the eyes could see. She took out her phone to call Mike when suddenly, someone grabbed her arm and pulled her to the side.
Panicked, she looked over at the person who had grabbed her.
“Isn’t this man Elliot’s bodyguard? Is Elliot participating in this summit as well?” she thought.
Just as she was about to say something, she spotted Mike and Chad arguing at a corner in the distance.
If Chad was there, Elliot had to be there as well.
“Let go of me!” She scowled and barked at the bodyguard, “I can walk just fine on my own!”
The bodyguard let go of her and said, “Don’t try anything.”
“Where is he?” Her heart sped up as she struggled to catch her breath.
The summit was about to begin in half an hour, and she suspected that Elliot sent for her on purpose.
The bodyguard did not respond and simply led the way. Once they reached one of the guest rooms, the bodyguard opened the door and signaled for her to get in.
She took a deep breath and went inside.
The door was slammed shut with a loud bang.
“What do you want?” Avery tightened her grip around her purse and glared at the man sitting on the couch.
Elliot’s eagle-like eyes locked onto Avery’s alluring face and he drawled, “Is your period over?
“I’m busy right now.” She took a step back and placed her hand on the doorknob. “If that’s what you want, wait until night!”
He got up from the couch and strode towards her, before pinching her chin with his long fingers, forcing her to look up.
“I grew sick of doing it at night,” he said in a hoarse voice. “I want to try doing it in the day.”
