Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 44
The little commotion between Avery and the guard attracted everyone’s attention to look toward the door.
When Elliot recognized Avery’s slender figure, he got up from his seat and said, “What are you doing here?”
Avery shook off the bodyguard’s grip once again, smoothed her clothes, and walked into the office.
“I’m here to see Professor Hough,” she said, then looked curiously at Elliot and asked, “Are you here to see him, too?”
Professor Hough examined the two, then adjusted his glasses, and asked, “Do you two know each other?”
Avery was about to tell the professor that they were acquaintances, but Elliot was one step ahead of her. “Professor, please keep the matter we talked about private.”
“Ofcourse,” answered the professor. “It’s doctor-patient confidentiality.”
“I’ll be off, then,” Elliot said.
The professor nodded in response.
Elliot turned toward the exit. When he walked past Avery, he glanced at her, but said nothing and walked out.
Avery was a little stunned.
Why did he not answer her question?
What mysterious conversation did he have with the professor?
What secret was he trying to hide?
“Are you here to see me, Miss?” asked the professor, refocusing Avery’s attention on him. “I have to leave in about ten minutes. Did you have a question to ask me?”
Avery immediately pulled out the documents she had prepared and said, “I’m sorry for bothering you, professor. My name is Avery Tate, and I’m a senior in the medical college here at Avonsville. This is a paper I wrote on some of your previous clinical cases. I got all of the information online, and since there weren’t many details on the internet, I had to come to my own conclusion for a lot of the cases. I was hoping that you could take a look at it and let me know if there are any errors.”
Professor Hough took the documents from Avery’s hands and began to sift through it.
Once Elliot was in the car, he glanced over at the administrative building.
Was Avery a medical student?
From what he knew, she was an art student. Was the report he received incorrect?
He pulled out his phone and called Chad.
“Chad, the background check you did on Avery before stated that she was an art student, but what is she doing in medical school?”
“She is, in fact, an art student. I confirmed it with the university myself.”
“I bumped into her at the medical department.”
“Do you mean the medical department at Avonsville University?”
“I’ll look into it right away,” Chad said, then added after a brief pause, “I’ve sent you the reservations for the recital. It’s going to be at 4 p.m. today.”
Moments later, Chad called Elliot back after checking out the news on Avery.
“Mr. Foster, Miss Tate is majoring in arts and minoring in medicine.”
“I didn’t expect her to be that impressive.”
Elliot hung up.
That noon, Avery met Tammy at a restaurant close to campus for lunch.
Once they were seated, Tammy passed the menu to Avery and said, “You’ve really changed, Avery. You used to come out every single time I asked you out, but last night was the first time in forever that we have gone out together, but you left faster than the speed of light. What’s going on?”
“Tammy, was the party last night a singles event?” Avery asked.
“It was! What’s up?”
“Don’t invite me to parties like that again in the future. I’m not single at the moment.”
“What?!” Tammy exclaimed. “Didn’t you just break up not too long ago? How did you move on so quickly?”
