Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 52
The contents which were below the title were short and simple, for Avery could not figure out exactly how to get out of her situation no matter how much she had thought about it.
There was only one sentence: [Divorce Elliot Foster by the end of the year at all costs.]
A mixture of rage and bitterness swept across Elliot’s face.
He was working on himself to change for the better, but she was still hell bent on leaving him.
She had created the document the night before… She had played him for a fool!
While she pretentiously buttered him up with her gifts and her words, she had been planning her escape in her room!
Elliot had thought that Avery was different, but the only thing that was unique about her was that she was a two-faced snake!
He slammed the laptop shut and stormed out of the room.
The people at the executive meeting at Sterling Group noted Elliot’s peculiar mood.
From the moment he stepped into the conference room, his brows were furrowed and his expression was icy.
His emanated a chilling aura that made the people around him shudder.
All the department managers were seated in stiff, upright positions, and they barely dared to breathe.
The company’s performance in the third quarter had exceeded expectations, but why was the president enraged?
Elliot did not say a word throughout the entire meeting and indifferently listened to each department’s report.
It was not until the end of the meeting that he said, “Dismissed,” then left the room in a flash.
Chad was about to run after him, but he was held back by one of the managers.
“What’s wrong with the boss, Mr. Rayner? Is he not happy with our performance this quarter? If he isn’t, then he can tell us what he wants, and we will do our best to achieve it!”
“Exactly! It was weird that he didn’t say anything the whole time. Does he have some new plans or ideas?”
Everyone surrounded Chad in hopes of getting first-hand news from him.
Chad adjusted his glasses, then said, “The company’s performance this quarter was indeed impressive, so I’m sure Mr. Foster is very satisfied. The reason for his bad mood doesn’t have anything to do with work, but it is something in his personal life. Just get back to work!”
After that, Chad hurriedly rushed to Elliot’s office.
He opened the office doors without knocking, but he did not expect there to be a guest inside the room.
“Long time no see, Mr. Tierney,” said Chad.
“Hey, Chad. I’m borrowing your boss for a second,” said Charlie with a gentle smile on his face.
Chad took the hint, so he quickly stepped out of the room and shut the door behind him.
As the room returned to its original state of silence, the smile on Charlie’s face also vanished.
“I’m here on my parents’ orders to take Chelsea home, but she won’t come with me no matter what I say to her,” Charlie said. “You’re the only one she’ll listen to, Elliot.”
Elliot picked up his phone and dialed Chelsea’s number in front of Charlie.
Chelsea answered the call almost right away and said excitedly, ” Elliot? Did you need something?”
“Resign and go home with your brother,” Elliot said bluntly.
Charlie’s brows furrowed at his unexpected straightforwardness.
Chelsea stayed silent for a moment, then exclaimed, “Did Charlie say something to you? Don’t listen to him! I’m not going with him!”
She hung up right after she said her piece.
Elliot put down his phone, then shot Charlie an icy glare and snapped, “How many times have I had to deal with her behavior over the years? That was the last time. Don’t bother me with your family matters again!”
Noticing his unusually bad mood, Charlie shot to his feet and said, “I’ll be leaving, then!”
He bumped into Chad as he walked out of the office and said, “Is your company in the middle of a crisis or something? Elliot is in an exceptionally bad mood today.”
“Everything’s fine. It’s Mr. Foster’s love life that’s in a crisis,” Chad responded.
Charlie raised his brows in curiosity, then asked, “Who’s he dating? Why haven’t I heard anything about it?”
“So, you have heard about it.”
“I heard it from Chelsea. She’s always bringing up Elliot when I talk to her. It hurts my ears,” Charlie said, then grinned and added, “So, the great Elliot Foster has fallen in love with a young lady who’s barely out of college. Interesting…”
