When His Eyes Opened

Chapter 46

Chapter 46 “No idea,” the bodyguard shrugged. Avery took a deep breath and glanced at her surroundings If her memory served her right, the recital that Tammy mentioned earlier was this exact one! However, she had declined Tammy’s invitation. In the end, she found herself here anyway! The only thing was that she was here with Elliot instead. She would be mortified if she bumped into Tammy in the concert hall As her palms began to sweat profusely, she prayed that she would not run into Tammy. It was impossible to end up being seated close to each other in such a large concert hall, right? Chad reserved the whole front row for Elliot. Avery saw him the second she walked into the hall He was sitting by himself. He sat ramrod straight, and he emanated arrogance. Since the concert had not yet begun, he was looking at his phone. Avery felt as if her feet were glued to the ground, and she could not move. Elliot stood out too much! What made him want to invite her to a recital? Did he forget about how he insulted her relationship with Cole the night before? She had talked about how art was a wonderful thing, but he had called it a joke. “What are you standing around for? Move!” snapped the bodyguard when he noticed Avery standing still. ‘I'm a little cold... Could I borrow your jacket?” Avery asked politely as she glanced at the bodyguard’s black suit jacket. The bodyguard’s expression was cold as he unbutton his jacket, revealing a plethora of weapons. Avery’s ankles turned weak at the sight, and she quickly rushed over to Elliot When she reached his side, she hesitated for two seconds, then sat down two. seats away from him 1 sec Elliot stared at the empty seats between them and frowned. Was she avoiding him? ‘It’s a little warm in here...” Avery explained. The bodyguard who was sitting on the other side of Elliot snapped, “What are you playing at? Didn't you just say you were cold?!” Avery took a deep breath, then said awkwardly, “Why do you always talk so much? The bodyguards I see o n TV always keep their mouths shut. Can you just focus all of your energy on protecting your boss?” The bodyguard was baffled. This infuriating woman! Elliot glared at the bodyguard and said, “Sit further away.” The bodyguard instantly shot up and moved down the row from them. Avery felt her breathing even out. She took another deep breath to try to calm herself down. Suddenly, an idea popped into her head. She took off her coat, folded it neatly, and placed it on the seat between her and Elliot. She unfastened her ponytail and tried her best to cover her face with her hair. This way, as long as Tammy did not show up in front of her, she would not be able to see her face. Elliot watched her coldly. He was trying to read her. Did she take off her coat to show off her figure? Did she undo her hair to flaunt her femininity? It was obvious to him that she was teasing him “Avery...” Elliot began to say. “Don't talk to me!” Avery hissed as she continued to cover her face with her hair. “My friends are here, too. I don’t want them to know I'm here!” Elliot's lips pursed into a thin line, and his jaw tightened. The calmness in his eyes had vanished.
