Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 528
Half an hour later, the vice president of Sterling Group burst into Ben’s office.
“I’ve looked everywhere for you, Chad. I knew you’d be here!”
The vice president slumped down next to Chad.
Noticing the vice president dripping in sweat, Chad asked, ” What happened? You’re making me think the company’s in some kind of trouble.”
The vice president poured himself a glass of water, then said, “Did the two of you know that Avery Tate was here? Why didn’t you tell me?” He drank the entire glass of water in one gulp. “I went into Mr. Foster’s office just now— Aaah! Just the thought of it makes me want to dig a hole and bury myself! What the h**l did I just see? I think I’m about to get fired!”
Ben and Chad were shocked.
“Don’t tell me they were…” Ben spoke but he did not complete his sentence.
The vice president nodded furiously and said, “That was not the worst thing. The worst thing was that I was with a team of people, and all of them saw it too! … Honestly, I might as well pack up and leave.”
He buried his face in his hands in agony.
Everyone knew that the president of Sterling Group, Elliot Foster, kept his distance from women.
He had never brought a woman to the company before, let alone do anything with a woman in his own office.
However, everything changed today!
Never in his dreams did the vice president think that he would walk into something like this.
Elliot cared very much about his privacy and was probably pondering on how to make him disappear into thin air.
Ben and Chad gazed at the vice president with sympathetic eyes.
They tried to speak, but they wound up breaking into uncontrollable laughter instead.
“Stop laughing! I’m devastated right now! You shouldn’t kick a man while he’s down!” The vice president said dejectedly as he checked his phone to see if he had received any new calls or messages.
He had a feeling that Elliot was not going to go easy on him.
“Don’t be so pessimistic. I think you’ll be fine.” Ben took a sip of water to calm himself down. “If I were you, I’d go back to his office half an hour later and congratulate him.”
“Mr. Foster won’t be mad,” Chad said. “He’s in a good mood today. Even if you made a big mistake, he might forgive you.”
“Are you sure?” mumbled the vice president. “When he noticed that I’d walked in earlier, he looked stern! He was furious!”
“Ahem… At the time… What were they doing?”
“Let me think… When I walked in, all I saw was something white… Oh, I think that was Miss Tate’s back…” The vice president tried his best to recall what he saw, then took a sharp breath and said, “Miss Tate was on top…”
Ben looked like he had choked on something.
“I can’t help you there.” He shook his head, then said, “I honestly didn’t think that would be what you saw when you walked in.”
Chad was also mortified. He could barely wrap his head around things.
“Since neither of you can help me, I’ll just go and face my doom!”
The vice president stood up in misery and planned to go and beg Elliot for forgiveness.
“Hey! You should go later! What if they’re not done yet?” Ben said as he held him back.
“Huh?” The vice president looked perplexed as he said, “How could they continue after I walked in on them? No way! Miss Tate actually screamed!”
Ben released his grip.
It was over!
“I suggest you beg for forgiveness from Avery Tate,” he said.
“That’s right,” Chad agreed. “As long as she forgives you, Mr. Foster would too.”
“Okay! I’ll go find Miss Tate right now!”
The vice president clenched his fists and walked out of the room.
The doors to the president’s office were wide open.
The vice president pretended to walk by and “accidentally” peeped into the room.
All he saw was Elliot working away behind his desk with a serious expression on his face.
There was no trace of Avery in the office.
