When His Eyes Opened

Chapter 23

Chapter 23 Elliot unceremoniously slapped Avery’s hand away and hissed coldly, ‘Letting you live is already showing you mercy, Shut your mouth and stop p*ssing me off!” Avery looked at his heartless expression and swallowed all of her pain. There was nothing she could say or do to make him change his mind. She pressed herself into the seat and gazed miserably out the window. When the car came to a halt in front of the hospital, Avery was forcefully yanked out of the car and dragged to the gynecology clinic. Elliot stayed in a car and lit a cigarette. Avery’s teary eyes and the hateful expression she shot at him kept replaying in his head He refused to go easy on her! Everyone who betrayed him had to pay for the consequences. The large doors to the operating room slowly shut after Avery was pushed into surgery. The doors reopened about half an hour later. The doctor walked out and informed the bodyguard, “The surgery is complete, but we'll need to observe the patient for at least an hour.” The bodyguard’s task was to get Avery to go through with the abortion. Now that it was done, his mission was complete. The bodyguard left the waiting room and the doctor returned to the operating room When Laura arrived at the hospital after getting the call, Avery was sitting on a bench with her eyes red from tears. ‘It hurts, Mom...” Laura patted her back and cooed, “Don't cry, my dear. Let's go home. He'll regret it when he finds out the truth!” “No, he won't. He'll never regret it,” Avery said as she wiped the tears from the corner of her eyes. “His heart is harder and colder than stone.” Laura held Avery as they walked out of the hospital, and they hailed a cab. Once they were gone, Elliot's car sped off from the hospital. Cole was told that Elliot had something to discuss with him and he was summoned to his house. When Cole arrived in the evening, there was no sign on Elliot anywhere “What does my uncle want to talk to me about? Didn't he say he didn’t want to see me here again?” Cole asked Mrs. Cooper after taking a sip of tea Mrs. Cooper’s expression was anxious. She shook her head violently and said, “I don’t know anything. Don’t ask me.” She had hid in a corner and watched as Avery was forcefully taken away earlier. She could not say or do anything about it She could not believe that Avery was pregnant. What was even more unbelievable was the fact that Elliot would force her to get an abortion. They slept together the night before after all. Elliot's car drove into the courtyard shortly after. Cole shot to his feet when he heard the car approaching and walked out to greet his uncle. When Elliot emerged from the car, his dark expression was in complete contrast with the evening sun. Cole had a bad feeling, but he smiled and said, “Uncle Elliot, why did you call Before he could finish his sentence, Elliot’s bodyguard kicked him in the gut and sent him flying to the ground. “You actually showed up, you little brat?! How dare you take your uncle for a fool?!” The bodyguard stepped down on Cole's neck and spat at him. “Since you're Master Elliot's nephew, I'll let you choose how you want to die. How about it?!” Cole was racked with terror. ‘What did I do, Uncle Elliot? Tell me what I did? I have no idea what I did!" Elliot looked down on his nephew from his wheelchair and said cruelly, “I killed your and Avery Tate's baby.” Cole was mortified. 1 “How is that possible? How could she have my kid? I've never even slept with her! How could she be pregnant with my kid?!” Cole's face was flushed in horror. After a moment of stunned silence, he said, “Uncle Elliot, you said Avery’s pregnant? Wouldn't the kid be yours, then?!"
