When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 70

Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 70

The admiration on Chelsea’s face instantly vanished into thin air.

“I can’t be one hundred percent sure about this, but I’m at least eighty to ninety percent sure of it,” Charlie continued. “I never told you because I was on decent terms with him before. Besides, I figured that his merits could make me overlook this matter.”

Chelsea felt a chill run through her entire body. It felt like an eternity before her trembling hand managed to bring her glass of wine to her lips.

“He might be impressive, but he has a huge disadvantage. You shouldn’t worship someone like him. If you were to marry him, I’d be worried for your safety,” Charlie said indifferently as he cut into his steak.

“I’m sure he had a reason for doing it… I don’t believe that he’s a bad guy…” Chelsea mumbled after a moment’s silence. “I would know if he was a lost cause. I spent all these years by his side, so I know him like the back of my hand.”

Charlie chuckled at his sister’s gullibility.

“There was a serial k****r who was finally caught a while ago. He managed to get away with his crimes for over ten years. The whole time, he was working hard at a normal job, and everyone around him said that he was honest and kind…”

“Watch your mouth, Charlie Tierney!” Chelsea snapped. “I have my own opinions. Mind your own business!”

“I knew you couldn’t handle me putting him down, which is exactly why I didn’t say a word all these years,” Charlie said with an innocent expression, then shrugged and said, “Keep holding on, then! When you decide to give up one day, our family will always welcome you back with open arms.”

Elliot’s face was stiffened with rage. He did not find the whole thing funny at all.

The fact that Charlie Tierney was asking his wife out in the name of “work” was vile, disrespectful and a blatant act of shamelessness.

“She hurt her face and hasn’t left the house in a week,” Elliot said curtly.

Ben and Chad were taken aback.

“How did she get hurt?”

After a moment’s hesitation, Elliot said quietly, “My mother hit her.”

“What the h**l? Was it because of that whole thing with your nephew?”

“Yes,” Elliot said as he shifted his gaze away from his laptop screen. He picked up his cup of coffee, took a sip and said bitterly, “She hasn’t spoken a word to me all week.”

“Well, did you try to make her feel better after your mother hit her?” Ben asked.

Elliot shook his head.

“Did you get her a gift or something to cheer her up?” Chad queried.

Elliot continued to shake his head.

Both Ben and Chad took deep breaths.

Any idiot would be able to figure out why Avery had ignored Elliot for a week!

“She wants a divorce. If I asked her what she wanted, she would say she wanted a divorce agreement,” Elliot said dejectedly. “If I tried to cheer her up, she would say that I was faking it and that I should divorce her if I truly cared about her.”

He was afraid of making a move or saying a word because all Avery wanted from him was a divorce.

Ben and Chad suddenly felt sympathetic towards him.

Elliot was far better than Charlie Tierney in every aspect, but why was his love life such a mess?

At the end of the day, one could blame it on his lack of experience.

After all, most things become easier to handle the second and third time around.
