Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 72

Avery froze in her tracks.

When she realized that her phone had just been snatched away, she began to run in the direction that the thief had sped off.

However, she stopped running when she remembered that she was pregnant and made her way back toward the house.

Mrs. Cooper was on the phone with Elliot about an hour later.

“Master Elliot, Madam Avery’s phone was stolen when she was out on a walk earlier. I took her to the station to file a report, but we were told that it was nearly impossible to get the phone back. Madam Avery’s eyes were so red when we got home. She said that there was a lot of important information on her phone. She’s crying by herself in her room right now.”

She could not allow things to remain as they are, and she thought that if Elliot knew about the matter, he might be able to use his connections to retrieve Elliot’s phone.

In truth, she had never confirmed if Avery was actually crying in her room, but she said it on purpose in hopes that Elliot might feel bad and help her.

Elliot had an appointment with Charlie Tierney that night.

He was already at the restaurant where they were supposed to meet in, and Charlie was expected to arrive at any moment.

After receiving Mrs. Cooper’s call, he came to a decision after less than a minute’s consideration.

When Charlie arrived at the restaurant and saw nobody but Chad, he raised his brows and asked, “Where’s your boss?”

“I’m sorry, Mr. Tierney, but Mr. Foster just left. Something happened at home, so he asked me to wait for you here and explain things to you,” Chad explained apologetically.

“Isn’t that too much of a coincidence?” Charlie scoffed. “Could it be that he decided not to meet with me and came up with some lame excuse?”

“Even if Mr. Foster didn’t want to see you, he wouldn’t escape at the last minute,” Chad said. “He’s not afraid of anyone.”

Charlie took a seat, then stared calmly at Chad and said, “From what I recall, he doesn’t have the best relationship with his family. Who exactly is in trouble for him to ditch me like this?”

“His wife,” answered Chad.

Charlie did not have anything to say to that.

“I’m guessing Mr. Foster asked to meet you to discuss your dealings with Miss Avery Tate. I may be speaking out of turn, but I have to inform you that Mr. Foster is very fond of Miss Avery. You would be better off keeping your distance from her.”

After considering it for a moment, Charlie responded, “Have you ever thought of jumping ship, Chad? I can offer a significant pay raise.”

Chad was flustered.

“Thank you for the kind offer, Mr. Tierney, but I have no intention of leaving Sterling Group anytime soon. As long as Mr. Foster doesn’t fire me, I won’t leave his side.”

“Why’s that?” Charlie asked, puzzled.

“You can ask Chelsea her reason for not leaving the company.”

“She won’t leave because she’s in love with Elliot Foster. Don’t tell me you’re in love with him too?!” Charlie chuckled.

“I like him, but out of respect,” Chad answered honestly. “Everyone always talks about his temper, but there are many facets to a human being. Someone who never smiles isn’t necessarily a bad person, and someone who is always friendly isn’t necessarily pure of heart.”

“Are you talking about me?” Charlie asked.

“Of course not,” Chad replied. “There is no hidden meaning. You’re a formidable man, but I would never betray Mr. Foster.”

Chad knew very well that Charlie wanted to poach him so he could use him against Elliot.

As his trusty right-hand man, nobody would know Elliot as well as Chad did.

“If I decide to turn my back on Mr. Foster today, I could very well do the same thing to you in the future. I’m sure you won’t be able to trust someone like that,” Chad said.


When Elliot arrived at the police station, the whole station fell into an anxious frenzy.

The captain rushed over when he received the call.

“Your phone was stolen? That thief must be out of his mind! I’ll get my men on it right away! You have my word that I will get your phone back within the next twenty-four hours!” said the captain as he placed his hand on his chest and promised Elliot.

“It’s not my phone that was stolen,” Elliot said.

“Oh! You scared me! I thought it was yours-“

“It was my wife’s,” Elliot said, then took a sip of water and asked, “Can you get it back in twenty-four hours?”

The captain was taken aback, then said, “Yes! Absolutely! We have surveillance cameras everywhere now, so we will definitely get it back! We’ll start a full-fledged investigation right now!”

Elliot nodded and said, “I appreciate it.”

“Don’t mention it! We’re just doing our jobs!”

The captain flipped through the report, then asked, “Is your wife’s name Avery Tate?”
