Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 462

Her eyes were red with rage. “And what if I have a m*********e?”

Her question had caused a lump to form in Elliot’s throat, and he fell helplessly silent.

“The baby is barely three months old, there is no certainty that it will survive! If you keep pissing me off every single day, I can assure you that it won’t.” Avery watched as Elliot gaped at her words. She felt a rush. She was finally able to retaliate.

He moved his lips, but in the end, he could not say a single word. He knew that he should not provoke her any further when he remembered how hopeless Avery appeared to be while in the hospital.

She had plenty of chances to get rid of the baby before, but she did not. She suffered from morning sickness in silence, she had lost so much weight, and still, she had not gotten rid of the child. That was proof enough that she intended to carry it to term.

Elliot slowly began to regain his composure.

Avery calmed down and unlocked her phone to find messages from Mike, Tammy, and Eric. She texted them one by one, informing them that she was safe.

Shortly after, the car drove into Starry River Villa and stopped before Avery’s mansion.

Once the door was unlocked, she pushed it open and got out of the car. Elliot too alighted the vehicle.

“Why are you getting out as well? Go back.” Avery held onto her purse and stared at him from across the car.

“Let’s talk.”

“Talk? What’s there to talk about?”

She was exhausted from the fight, and she desperately wanted to get some sleep.

However, Elliot simply stood in front of the entrance of the mansion and waited for her to open the gate.

She approached him and unlocked the gate. She stepped into the yard with Elliot closely following her.

She felt as though she was inviting a wolf into her house. When the door to the mansion was opened, he quickly made his way inside, bypassing her.

She gaped when she saw him taking a pair of brand-new slippers from the shoe cabinet and putting them on.

“Don’t you see how ridiculous you are being, Elliot?” She watched as he changed into the slippers from the door and said, “Weren’t you disgusted by the idea of me having your child back then? Have you forgotten about what happened all those years ago?”

“How can I forget? Not only do I remember, but the memories are carved into my brain,” he thought.

Throw sarcastic remarks at me all you want if that makes you feel any better, Avery.” He changed into the slippers and turned to look at her calmly.

“Are those pretty words supposed to cover the mistakes you made back then?” she said, before walking toward him to place her purse onto the shoe cabinet, and change into her slippers.

“My mistakes?” He chuckled and said, “I would do the exact same thing even if I have to do it all over again.”

She froze.

“Did I even know you that well back then?” he said sharply. “Have you ever tried standing in my shoes and thinking about what you would have done if you were me?”

She stared at him.

“If you were me and you woke up to a wife you didn’t know, and who was pregnant with your nephew’s child, what would you have done? No matter whose child that was, I couldn’t have accepted it,” he said coldly.

In all these years she had been with him, this was the first time she had heard his true thoughts, and she felt as though a rock was finally lifted from her chest.

“You accuse me of not standing in your shoes, but have you tried standing in mine?” she retorted. “How do you think I got pregnant to begin with? It’s not like I can get pregnant on my own, can I?”

Elliot too was taken by surprise at her words.

“It was your mother’s plan! You knew all along, but you didn’t care. I understand that you forced me to get an a******n at the time because you didn’t love me, but I still hate you for it. It doesn’t matter what excuse you use, but nothing can change that,” she hissed while staring into his eyes.

Elliot was not enraged. He tried to calm down and think about it. Though a******n was a comparatively minor surgery with no risk to life, there would surely be pain and emotional trauma; just like how it had hurt him when she told him that she had wanted to get rid of his child.

Perhaps it had hurt her as much when he had forced her to get an a******n.
