Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 482

Elliot was at the Sterling Group when he took the call.

“Mr. Foster, Shea has taken Hayden to the National Youth Programming Championships today. She has managed to convince him to participate in the finals,” said the bodyguard on the other end of the line.

Elliot’s brows furrowed, and he was dumbfounded as he said, “What are you talking about?”

The bodyguard repeated himself, then explained, “Miss Shea asked me not to tell you about it.”

“Why are you telling me now, then?”

Elliot massaged the space between his brows as a sense of foreboding rose inside him.

“When Hayden Tate won the competition, Miss Shea ran up on stage. Someone recognized her and things turned chaotic. Miss Shea’s isn’t hurt, but she is a little shaken up.”

Elliot listened to the bizarre story and thought that the bodyguard was having a go at him.

“Why would Shea take Hayden to the Youth Programming Championships?” he wondered.

Hayden was a loner who disliked meeting strangers. Logically, he would unwilling to compete in anything like this.

How did Shea manage to convince him?

“Send me the address!” Elliot said in a deep voice, then hung up the phone.

Hayden was at a park near the science museum. He had gotten tired and had sat down on a bench by the street.

With the trophy in her hands, Shea took a seat next to him.

“I’m sorry, Hayden,” she said apologetically. “I only brought you here to compete because I wanted you to join the elite class.”

“Why do I need to join an elite class?” Hayden snapped angrily.

“My teacher told me that everyone in the elite class is super smart. I think you’d be happier if you went to study there instead,” explained Shea. “Everyone there is the same as you. there was a place where I could be with people like me, I’m sure I’d be happy.”

Hayden wanted to retaliate, but he was thrown off by Shea’s innocent, child-like face.

He did not want to reprimand her, but he was worried that she would repeat the same thing again.

“Do you think you could butt into my business just because you’re my aunt?” Hayden said as he shot up from his seat. “Even if you’re my aunt, you should mind your own business!”

He turned and stormed off.

Shea held the trophy in her arms and continued to apologize as she ran after him.

“Don’t be mad, Hayden! Forget about the elite class! I won’t make you mad again! I’m sorry!”

The one that Hayden was most upset with was not Shea but Elliot.

“I hate Elliot Foster!”

Shea was perplexed, but she did not know how to make Hayden like her brother.

The only thing she could do was make sure Hayden did not hate her.

“Let’s go get some ice cream, Hayden,” she said with sparkling eyes as she took his hand in hers. “We don’t need to care about what others say. They don’t matter at all! They called me a crazy lady, but I’m not mad at all. To me, you’re the best of the best! Even if you don’t join the elite class, you’re still a genius!”

The iciness in Hayden’s heart slowly melted away upon hearing those words.

Earlier, Shea had forced the boy who said there was shady business involved to apologize to Hayden.

The boy was so terrified of Shea that he reluctantly apologized.

“I want ice cream,” Hayden said. He wanted to put the events of the day behind him.

“I’ll go get some right now! Wait here for me!” Shea said, then strode off with the trophy still in her arms.

The bodyguard left along with her.

As Hayden watched them leave, he had the urge to leave himself.

He wanted nothing more than to be alone at that moment, but Shea would be disappointed if she returned with the ice cream and found him gone.

He did not want to hurt Shea.

She was completely different from Elliot Foster.

He should not treat them as equals.

A black Rolls-Roice came to a halt outside the park.

Once Elliot entered the park, his dark eyes instantly fell on Hayden who was standing by a bed of flowers.

Perhaps it was because of his sharp gaze, but, whatever it was Hayden looked up and met his eyes.
