Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 466
Avery looked up at Mike, then said, “Can’t you just let me eat in peace? We didn’t talk about any of that!”
“What did you talk about all afternoon then?” Mike said with a look of astonishment. “Why was he upstairs? Did he sleep in your room? Well?”
“Do I ever freak out when you bring Chad home to stay the night?”
“Chad’s my boyfriend. Is Elliot Foster your boyfriend?” Mike asked. “How can your ex-husband possibly be compared to my boyfriend? Or are you planning on making things official with him?”
Avery was taken aback.
“You’re so annoying,” she said with furrowed brows.
“Fine, I won’t speak anymore. Go on and eat,” Mike said as he felt bad seeing Avery’s skinny figure.
Avery picked up her spoon and took a sip of her soup.
It was still warm.
The children were staring at her with unblinking eyes.
Avery’s cheeks flushed as she said, “Why are you staring at me like that?”
“Mommy, will you still love Hayden and me once the baby’s born?” Layla asked.
“Of course!” Avery exclaimed. “Of course, I love you and your brother.”
It was because she loved them so much that she did not want Elliot to find out about them.
Layla felt relieved. Her eyes were now filled with curiosity. She blinked and said, ” Is the baby a boy or a girl?”
Avery could not help but chuckle.
“The baby’s still really tiny, sweetie. It’s too early to tell if it’s going to be a boy or a girl.”
Layla was surprised.
“It’s even smaller than an egg right now!”
Layla was even more shocked.
Were Hayden and I like that when we were babies, too?”
“That’s right. We all start out as tiny babies, and we slowly grew up.”
Layla nodded, then raised another question.
“Why aren’t you eating much, Mommy? Is it because the baby won’t let you?”
Hayden thought his sister’s incessant questions were interrupting Avery’s meal, so he pulled Layla away and took her back to their room.
Mike took a sip of water, then walked over to Avery’s side.
“Your pregnancy was a huge surprise this time. You should’ve told the kids about it first… They’ve been upset since yesterday,” Mike said softly.
“Elliot wanted this baby,” Avery said bitterly.
“What? Are you giving the baby to him to raise once it’s born?”
“That’s the plan for now, but I don’t know if I’ll change my mind later on.”
“That’s right. You might as well just give birth to it first!” Mike said as he very quickly accepted the situation. “You shouldn’t go to the office, then. Stay home and take care of yourself and the baby.”
“Early pregnancy symptoms only happen during the first trimester. I’ll go back to work once the nausea goes away.”
“Why are you working so hard? What if something happens to the baby?” Mike said as he shot Avery a look. “Since Elliot wants the baby, he’ll go insane if you were to lose it.”
“How do you know him so well?”
“To me, he is a lunatic!” Mike shrugged, then said, “If you miscarried, he will just plant another baby inside you.”
His words caused knots to form in Avery’s stomach.
Over at the Foster mansion, the black Rolls-Roice pulled into the front yard. Elliot emerged from the car, but Shea grabbed onto his arm before he could fully straighten himself.
“Give me my ID, Big Brother.”
Elliot sighed internally when he saw the nervous expression on his sister’s face.
“Am I more important, or is your ID more important?”
Shea froze for a moment, then said, “Both are important.”
Elliot had not expected Shea to be able to think so clearly and adapt so well.
Since his mother’s passing, Elliot had not been able to feel much happiness, and this was the happiest he had ever been.
Not only was Shea’s condition improving, but Avery was also pregnant with his child.
Elliot entered his study, got out Shea’s ID, and gave it to her.
“This is an important document, Shea,” he said. “You have to tell me right away if you lose it.”
