Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 527

Chad was sitting in Ben’s office at the Sterling Group building. He was sipping on a cup of tea.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been Mr. Foster this happy!” Chad chuckled. “I was standing by his office door— on purpose when I saw him bring in a huge bag of fruits and snacks. Can Avery eat all of that? Hahaha!”

“Did Avery finally come around? Women are so difficult to figure out!” Ben said with furrowed brows.

“Could she be coming because Zoe and Cole got together?” mused Chad. “I can’t think of anything else that might make her come here.”

“Let’s hope that’s the case.” Ben raised his own cup of tea and clinked cups with Chad.

Avery pulled up in front of the Sterling Group building half an hour later.

After his little tea session with Ben, Chad had been waiting at the building’s entrance.

When he saw Avery’s Rower, he immediately ran up to it.

Avery rolled down her window when she saw Chad approaching, then said, “Chad, the parking lot is full. I’ll go find somewhere to park.”

Chad smiled and said, “You can just park anywhere in this huge spot right here! You can just park your car at the entrance too.”

Avery was bewildered.

Chad waved his hand and directed her, “Just park right there!”

“That’s not a parking spot!”

“It’s fine! This entire piece of land belongs to Mr. Foster. You can park wherever you want.” said Chad. “Or I can park your car for you?”

Avery shook her head in embarrassment and said, “It’s fine. I’ll park it myself.”

She parked the car, then opened the door and got out.

“You look beautiful today, Miss Tate!” said Chad, sincere in his flattery.

Avery was wearing a floral camisole with a matching fitted skirt.

The outfit showed off her ivory skin and slender figure, making her look s**y and bewitching.

Chad was afraid that Elliot would not be able to hold himself back once he laid eyes on her.

Avery felt some regret.

She was only there to see Elliot, and there was really no need for her to have changed her outfit.

They had just met the day before, and it was not like they could not see each other every day.

“What would people think of me now that they have seen me dressed up like this?” she thought.

“I—” Avery wanted to explain herself.

“It’s hot out here, Miss Tate. Let’s hurry inside! Mr. Foster has been waiting for you.”

Chad led the way with a grin.

Avery followed him. He led her straight to the president’s office on the top floor of the building.

“Go on in! I’ll leave you two to it.” Chad led Avery right to Elliot’s office doors, then surreptitiously dismissed himself.

Avery knocked on the door and pushed it open.

When her eyes met Elliot’s, sparks flew, and they looked shocked. Each felt shocked for a different reason.

Avery saw Elliot sitting on the couch, and he was peeling grapes.

The plate on the table in front of him was piled high with peeled grapes.

He stared at her in surprise as his Adam’s apple bobbed in his throat.

“Aren’t you cold dressed like that?”

Avery forced herself to come up with an excuse and said, “Pregnant women get hot easily.”

Elliot wiped his hands with a wet napkin, then walked over to her and led her into the room.

“I remember you liked grapes, so I peeled some for you,” he said as he sat her down on the couch.

The air was filled with an alluring scent of cologne and grapes.

Avery uneasily picked up a grape and popped it into her mouth.

“How is it?” Elliot ogled her demure face in anticipation.

His gaze made Avery blush, and a sudden surge of courage rose inside her.

She reached up to wrap her hand around the back of his neck and pressed her red lips against his cold, thin ones.
