Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 82
If he could turn back time, Elliot would not change a thing.
He was not perfect.
Avery’s appearance in his life was what made him decide to try to critique, examine, and correct his own behavior.
If it were not for their constant fights and misunderstandings, his feelings for her would not be this deeply rooted in his heart.
Tammy caught up to Avery outside of the restaurant and grabbed her arm.
“I can’t believe you’re married to Elliot Foster, Avery! This is massive news!” Tammy exclaimed as her head spun from the excitement of the evening’s events.
Avery, on the other hand, felt like there was a lump stuck in her throat.
“You saw it yourself. He’s just messing around with me.”
“Jun said that he just wanted to help you but was too embarrassed about it,” Tammy said.
She did not think that things were that bad to warrant such a reaction from Avery.
“Let’s head back inside, Avery! We should let him explain…”
Avery shook off Tammy’s grip. Her tone was determined and cool as she said, “You go ahead! I want to be alone.”
She hailed a cab and left.
When Tammy turned to return to the restaurant, Elliot was walking out of the building.
He took quick steps as if he had decided to chase after Avery.
Tammy pointed in the direction Avery left in and said, “She took a cab and went that way.”
Elliot nodded in thanks, then hurried toward the parking lot.
Jun came outside right after Elliot left.
He approached Tammy with eyes filled with accusation and said, “You’re a spy!”
Tammy’s cheeks were flushed, but she lifted her chin high and said, “How long have I known you? Of course, I’d be on my best friend’s side.”
“I suspect you dated me just to dig information!” Jun scoffed.
“Exactly!” Tammy said without remorse. “Now that I’ve gotten the information that I needed, we can keep this going if you want, or end things if you don’t! We haven’t known each other for long, anyway. We should go our separate ways rights now while things aren’t that serious!”
Jun took in a tortured breath. He wanted to speak, but he was afraid of saying the wrong things.
He was not quite willing to let Tammy go, but he did not want her to see how desperate he was for her.
“Don’t think about breaking up with me before Elliot and Avery work things out! You have to make sure they make up,” Jun proposed. “You started this mess!”
“What does this have to do with me? I wasn’t the one who lied to her!” Tammy refused.
“Didn’t you see that she wore makeup today? She had never dressed up whenever we met. I’m sure that she did all of this for Elliot,” theorized Jun. “They’d be just fine if you kept your mouth shut!”
Tammy was close to being convinced by his ridiculous logic.
“Elliot treats her really well. Won’t you be touched if a man is willing to cough up all of that money to help pay off your debt?” Jun asked.
Tammy nodded and said, “I guess, but Avery isn’t an unreasonable person. I’m sure she has her own reasons for being this angry. I’m still on her side.”
Jun raised his hand and held his head.
Tammy grabbed onto his arm and said, “As my boyfriend, you should be on my side! They’re like a wolf and a sheep. Why should you feel bad for a big, bad wolf.”
Jun was at a loss for words.
“I’m hungry. Let’s go eat!” Tammy said, then pulled him back into the restaurant.
Avery had taken the cab to her mother’s house.
She had nowhere else to go.
When Laura saw her daughter’s icy expression on her ashen face, she immediately pulled her in and sat her down on the couch.
“What’s wrong? Did you get into a fight with Elliot?”
If it were not because of Elliot, Avery would still be at the Foster mansion no matter how bad a mood she was in, and not here at her home.
