Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 448
Avery awkwardly took out her phone to focus on something else.
Ben glanced at the screen and lowered his gaze to look for any change in Elliot’s heart rate.
“Good for him! His heart rate is as steady as a rock!” he thought. Ben began to wonder if there was anything wrong with the monitor, or if Elliot had indeed managed to overcome all urges.
Jun too was staring at the heart rate monitor around Elliot’s wrist and said, “The monitor should be fine. The numbers were moving when Avery was wearing it just now.”
“How did Avery do on the challenge?” Ben asked.
Jun glanced at Avery; Avery was expressionless, but Tammy was staring daggers at him. He looked away and said, “She won. The monitor will beep if her heart rate gets to high, but I didn’t hear anything while she was playing.”
Ben hummed in response and looked over at Avery.
Avery lowered her head and focused on her phone, clearly trying to avoid them.
The first video ended, and the second one began with a mature beauty posing in front of the camera in a s**y outfit. Everything, including her expression and body language, was seductive.
Someone catcalled in excitement, while others peeped at Elliot to observe his reaction.
Elliot scowled. Despite the fact that he was watching a video of a beautiful woman, he looked like he was attending a funeral.
On the other hand, there was a slight increase in his heart rate. He was still human after all. However, the change was so minuscule that it could be explained away by saying that he was just breathing a little differently.
“He doesn’t seem to like women! Show him hot guys!” Lisa had been paying close attention to Elliot’s reaction and shouted to the person controlling the videos when she noticed that Elliot was not reacting in any way.
Soon, the face of a handsome foreign man appeared on screen. Not only did the man have silky, golden locks, but he also had strong muscles…
Elliot’s expression turned from stern to dark, because he immediately associated what he saw with Mike’s face.
Lisa felt defeated by the way Elliot was frowning because it was obvious that he did not like men either.
“Show that video that’s labeled ‘must watch for macho men’!”
A few seconds later, the chubby face of a baby appeared on screen.
The group, mostly the men, burst out laughing.
“See? Guys like to watch babies,” Lisa thought and glanced at Elliot.
Elliot’s brows were no longer furrowed as tightly, but his heart rate remained steady at around eighty. The numbers did not even increase.
Ben sat beside him and chuckled smugly while looking at the video of the baby on the screen. “This game isn’t challenging at all!”
Lisa had already admitted defeat in her mind, but she still did not want to give up.
“I’ve never seen a man who’s not interested in anything.”
“Why else do you think he’s successful? It’s because he’s only interested in money.”
“Alright! But the game isn’t over yet! I won’t admit defeat just yet!”
Another round of videos of kissing and s*x started on screen when suddenly, Tammy shoved Avery at Elliot.
Rendered speechless, Avery thought “Has Tammy gone mad?! How can she push me toward Elliot?”
