Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 65
Before Elliot reached the living room, Avery quickly ran back to her room.
Rosalie was having trouble breathing, and she felt like she was about to suffocate, but the sight of Elliot immediately calmed her down.
“Elliot… My son…”
Rosalie weakly reached out her arm to Elliot, who hurried over and held her.
“Divorce Avery Tate… Go tomorrow… Get a divorce…” Rosalie said with tears in her eyes. “I’m sorry… I’m sorry, my son… I was blind… I found you such a d***y woman…”
Elliot lifted his hand to wipe the tears off of his mother’s face, then said, “Don’t meddle in my affairs with Avery, Mom. You also don’t need to bother with Cole.”
“Cole got his finger chopped off… He must be in so much pain! He said you did it, but I know that isn’t true… How could you do something so cruel to your own family? You’re not that kind of person…”
“If you bring up this idiot in front of me again, I’ll get the driver to send you home right now,” Elliot said with a frightening expression on his face. “I won’t divorce Avery. Unless I decide to do so myself, no one can make me.”
Rosalie dejectedly took in a deep breath, then said, “Did you fall in love with her? For her… You’re willing to turn your back on your brother’s whole family…”
Elliot let go of his mother, shifted his gaze to the old mansion’s driver, and said, “Take my mother home.”
After that, he turned and made his way upstairs.
Rosalie watched her son’s back and could not hold back her tears.
How could he be so heartless?!
It was all Avery Tate’s fault!
Elliot never used to be like this!
Avery’s appearance had destroyed the relationship between uncle and nephew, which was what led to this whole fiasco.
Avery sat in bed with her back against the wall and her head slightly tilted back.
Her cheek stung, and her heart hurt.
The bruise on her face would go away after a few days, but the pain in her heart might never disappear.
Even if she thought she was over it, she would still feel sad if something triggered her one day.
At 8 a.m. the next morning, Elliot sat at the dining table for breakfast.
He suddenly turned to Mrs. Cooper and said, “Call Avery down.”
Mrs. Cooper made her way over to the guest bedroom but frantically returned moments later.
“Madam Avery isn’t in her room. She might have gone out. Let me ask the gatekeeper,” Mrs. Cooper reported to Elliot, then walked toward the front yard.
She returned shortly after and said, “Madam Avery left around six this morning. Should I give her a call?”
Mrs. Cooper was a little worried about Avery.
Rosalie’s slap was not a light one.
Avery might look soft and gentle, but she was a proud woman.
Mrs. Cooper dialed her number but was met by nothing but the cold beeping dial tone.
“Her phone’s turned off,” Mrs. Cooper said in a low voice.
Avery left at 6 a. m., and she had turned off her phone.
She would not be upset enough to do anything stupid, right?
A slap was not reason enough to seek d***h, but some people might lose control of their actions when they were triggered.
Elliot’s expression was stone-cold as he put down his coffee cup and left the dining room without a word.
He hesitated for a moment in the living room, pulled out his phone, and called his assistant.
“Chad, look up Avery Tate’s mother’s phone number for me.”
“Yes, Sir. I’ll get that for you right away,” answered Chad.
Once he got Laura Jensen’s number, he immediately dialed it.
“Sorry, the number you are trying to call is not reachable. Please try again later.”
What was going on?
Both Avery and her mother had their phones turned off?!
