Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 458
“Big Brother, do I have my own identification card?” Shea asked.
“Why are you asking about this out of the blue?” Elliot said.
“Because everyone has their own identification cards, and I want one too.”
“You do, but it’s at home.”
“Oh… Can you give it to me when we go home later?” Shea smiled.
“Why do you need it?” Elliot helped her find an empty seat.
“It’s my identification card, so I should keep it.” Shea opened her purse and took out a brand-new phone. “Big Brother, I bought a new phone. I can make calls now.”
Puzzled, Elliot looked up at the bodyguard.
The bodyguard immediately explained, “Miss Shea bought it when she went shopping yesterday. She even registered a sim card using Mrs. Scarlet’s identification card.”
Shea had changed drastically, and Elliot was slightly taken by surprise. Feeling proud of her progress, he said, “Shea, you can get a sim card with your own identification card.”
“Okay! When will we go home, Big Brother?”
She could not wait to go home.
“We need to at least wait until lunchtime to head home. Don’t worry, Shea, your identification card is safe with me.”
Shea nodded and switched on her phone. “Big Brother, can you teach me how to use my phone?”
“Sure,” Elliot responded with patience.
“Stop staring already! Your eyes look like they are about to pop out of their sockets.” Mike waved his hand in front of Avery.
Avery looked away awkwardly.
Elliot was teaching Shea how to use her phone, and he seemed very sincere and patient as he did so. It had been a very long time since Avery had last seen him behaving in such a gentle manner, so she could not help but stare.
She took a sip of water from her glass to try and conceal the panic on her face.
“Why hasn’t Eric arrived?” Mike looked at the time. “He should be sitting next to you, right?”
“What did you all do yesterday at the mansion? Did you have fun?” Mike refilled her glass after she had finished the water.
“I was sleeping most of the time.”
“Oh? Did you eat anything?”
“I did. I had spicy chicken soup.” Avery’s stomach rumbled at the memory of how tasty the spicy chicken soup was.
She had had her breakfast earlier but had vomited within ten minutes of finishing it. She would not have attended the wedding had it not been Tammy’s wedding. The morning sickness she suffered this time had rendered her helpless.
“I talked to Chad last night,” Mike lowered his voice as he leaned toward Avery, “I said that I’ve never seen you going on a diet before, and you don’t seem to be in love with someone, but still, you refuse to eat… Do you know what Chad said?”
Avery’s heartbeat sped up at the mysterious expression on Mike’s face.
“He said that women lose their appetite when they are pregnant. His sister was pregnant a while back, and she was acting exactly the way you are right now! His sister vomited no matter what she ate—”
Before Mike could finish, Avery covered her mouth and gagged.
Mike was instantly shocked.
“Mom!” Startled, Layla screamed.
Hayden immediately picked up the tissue box and handed a piece of tissue paper to Avery.
Elliot heard Layla’s scream from a distance and immediately looked over. When his dark, brooding eyes landed on Avery, he could not help but make his way to
“Why did Layla scream just now? What’s happening to Avery?” he thought.
“I’m fine. Don’t worry.” Avery did not vomit in the end and the nausea subdued almost immediately, but she looked at Mike with a slightly guilty expression.
Mike had already realized what was happening, and the look in her eyes had utterly betrayed her.
She was pregnant.
The staff at the wedding swiftly contacted a doctor, and Avery said awkwardly, “I’m sorry, but I’m fine.”
The staff made sure that she was really fine before leaving.
Elliot had been standing beside her the entire time, observing her. Elliot could not make out her expression due to the thick makeup she wore.
