Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 69

“If you ever gamble again, I’ll cut off both of your arms myself!” Henry snapped through gritted teeth.

“Why are you snapping at him? He just woke up! How could it be possible for him to lose all of that money by himself? I’m sure it was that brat, Cassandra Tate!” Olivia cried, then walked out of the room and called Cassandra over.

Cassandra walked into the room, took one look at Cole on the hospital bed, and hung her head in guilt.

“Mom… Why are you blaming Cassandra? Someone deliberately set me up last night, or I wouldn’t have lost that much money!”

Cole’s voice was weak, but he was more lucid now.

“It was Uncle Elliot… Nobody else could have done this! He found out that I used to date Avery Tate and hates me to d***h now!”

“I know it was your uncle! He doesn’t care about you or your father!” Olivia cried hysterically. “There’s something wrong with him. He’s not normal. We shouldn’t provoke him!”

Henry shoved his wife aside and yelled, “What are you saying in front of an outsider?! Elliot and I don’t get along because of our huge age gap! If your son had a backbone, Elliot wouldn’t be able to squash him like a bug! Take a look in the mirror and figure it out for yourself! Just looking at the two of you is giving me a headache!”

He then turned and stormed out of the room.

Olivia burst into tears.

Cole felt like his head was about to explode.

“Don’t cry, Mom! It’s all my fault. I’m a closet! Why did you save me? You should have just let me d*e!”

“Cole! Don’t be like that… You might not be as business-minded as your uncle, but you’re way better than him in my eyes!” Cassandra said as she held Cole’s arm. “Focus on recovering, for now, then we will come up with a way to take our revenge on him! Once he’s d**d, your father won’t compare you to him again!”

Cole suddenly calmed down.

Olivia’s wailing also came to a halt.

“Cole, you’ve seen Avery’s true colors now, right? She’s on your uncle’s side now, so you should let her go completely! We should get rid of both of them! Once they’re d**d, your uncle’s fortune will be ours.”

Cassandra was revealing her ambitious character.

Olivia walked over and stared coldly at her, then said, “What do you bring to the table? I heard your mother took a fortune from the Tate family. Why didn’t she help out with the loan sharks last night?!”

Cassandra pouted and said, “It’s true that my mom is wealthy, but she’s opening a new company outside of the country right now. By the time the business flourishes, our net worth might just surpass Elliot Foster’s! The market overseas is much more promising than it is here…”

“Don’t give me that bullsh*t! The way you two were gambling last night, you would have gone through any amount of money!” Olivia snapped.

“We won’t do it again! Really! I swear!” Cassandra said, raising her hands in defeat as her eyes filled with tears. “We were just curious and decided to try it out. It won’t happen again!”

“Cole is our family’s last hope because Elliot won’t have children,” said Olivia.

“Why is that? Is there something wrong with him?” Cassandra asked curiously.

“I’m not telling you anything! You’re not even my daughter-in-law yet,” Olivia said coldly. “I’ll only forgive you if you’re able to help Cole from now on.”

“I’ll do whatever it takes,” Cassandra said confidently. “Just you wait. I’ll show you what I’m made of.”

….

That evening, Chelsea was sitting at a high-end restaurant with a glass of red wine in her hand.

She had no appetite, and her brows furrowed as she said, “Have you lost your mind, Charlie? Are you trying to break my heart by handing over that much money to Avery Tate? If you have too much money, then how about giving it all to me?”

Charlie shook his head and said, “I can give you however much you want, Chelsea, but you’ve misunderstood me. Does money have anything to do with how Elliot Foster hurt you? He messed with your feelings, so I’m just giving him a taste of his own poison.”

“Ha… You want to try your luck with Avery Tate? Do you really think Elliot would let you get away with that? He loves her.”

The more Chelsea thought about it, the more insane the whole thing sounded.

“Don’t get yourself mixed up in all of this, Charlie. It’ll be hard on me if you become enemies with Elliot.”

“I never got along with him anyway,” Charlie said nonchalantly. “I decided to invest in Tate Industries because they’re not as bad as people think. Once I get my hands on it, I can turn the whole company around.”

Chelsea glared at her brother and said, “Avery Tate is my arch-nemesis. Are you trying to p*ss me off by making money for her?”

“Look on the bright side. Don’t you think she might just fall in love with me if I help her like this?”

“What if she doesn’t? Don’t get me wrong. You’re an outstanding man, but I still think Elliot is more attractive,” Chelsea said as admiration washed across her face. “His assertiveness, his indifference, his self-control-“

“Do you know how his father died?” Charlie scoffed.

He swirled the wine in his glass, then said, “Elliot k****d him.”
