When His Eyes Opened

Chapter 24

Elliot frowned. If he had not seen Avery fill the list with his own eyes, he would have almost believed Cole’s words. “Avery said that the child is yours, then it’s yours!” The bodyguard scolded. “How dare you do such a thing! It's not enough to repay even if you have nine lives!" Cole cried out, “Avery lied! Uncle, the reason I broke up with her was that she wouldn't let me touch her. I dumped her, and she hated me! She deliberately said that the child in her belly was mine! She wanted revenge on me! Uncle, you must believe me! No matter who the child in her belly belongs to, it can't be mine!” Elliot looked at the man lying on the ground with his face filled with fear. His heart suddenly went cold. This was the man that Avery liked This cowardly and spineless man could easily betray her when he encountered problems. “Drag him out!” Elliot's voice had no emotion at all. “But don’t kill him.” How could he let Cole die so easily? He wanted to destroy Cole little by little in front of Avery. Laura took Avery back to her rented house. After entering the room, Laura helped her to lie down on the bed. “Avery, don't cry. You can't cry now... You need to rest after having an abortion...” Avery looked at the ceiling and said, “Mom, my child is still here. It hasn't left me.” Laura was stunned, “Avery, what's going on? Didn't you say that Elliot forced you to abort the child?” ‘I told the doctor if she dared to touch me, I would never walk out the operating room alive. I wouldn't let her out of the operating room alive either.” Avery’s voice was unusually cold Although the child was safe, her heart had already turned into ashes, as if she had died once. ‘I got away with it this time, but what about next time? She thought to herself. As long as she stayed by Elliot's side, the child's safety would always be at stake. The phone rang, breaking the heavy air hanging in the room She picked up the phone and saw that it was the vice president calling After picking up the phone, the voice of the vice president could be heard. “Avery, I was drunk last night and just woke up! Did Mr. Z contact you today?” Avery was stunned, “No. Who did you drink with last night?” “Mr. Z! His name is Jun Hertz. I haven’t found any information about him on the internet. He is a very young man. His family background should be quite wealthy. He said he has been looking for suitable investment projects. I talked a lot to him last night, and I don’t know what decision he will make after considering it.” “Is he an acquaintance of Elliot?” Avery asked cautiously. “Uhh. I don't know! But he knows Ben. He said that Ben is his senior, and Ben is the financial president of Sterling Group and the right-hand man of Elliot.” The vice president quickly cleared up the relationship between those people. “So, Jun should have known Elliot.” “Avery, why did you suddenly mention Elliot? Do you know him?” The vice president asked curiously. “No, I don’t.” Avery's tone was icy cold. Her heart ached at the mention of his name. After talking on the phone, she put the phone down. Laura walked to the bed and sat down. “Avery, I found a job,” Laura said. “I didn't tell you before because I didn’t know if I could do it well.” “What kind of work?” Avery asked, suppressing her sadness.
