When His Eyes Opened by Simple Silence Chapter 406
The only reason Avery asked Elliot that was because he had looked terrifying when he had been strangling Hayden!
Avery got afraid just by thinking about it.
She did not ask Elliot the reason why he did that because no matter how much Hayden infuriated him, he should not attack a child!
Who would attack a five-year-old?!
Elliot looked up at Avery upon her question.
“Not only that,” he growled, his low voice was a low rumble. “Rape, murder, kidnap, robbery, I’ve done everything.”
Avery was speechless. He looked and sounded serious. She was so shocked that she did not know what to say.
“Avery, don’t pretend as if you care for me. You don’t care about the things that I have done in the past.” Slightly distracted, he tapped his cigarette against the ashtray. “You only care about your two children. I have long warned your son. Don’t piss me off,” he said, in a slow measured manner.
“He will never do that again!” Avery said. Her voice was high, betraying how unnerved she was.
Elliot placed his cigarette into the ashtray. He got up from the chair and walked over to the bed.
“Avery, I don’t owe you anything. Don’t yell at me! My patience has its limits!” He glared at her with hostility. His eyes were red.
At that moment, there was a knock on the door. Then, the door was pushed open.
The nanny came in with a hot bowl of oat porridge.
The nanny was stunned by the sight of Elliot. Elliot approached her and took the bowl from her.
The nanny immediately left the room and closed the door.
Avery wanted to leave the place, so she had to eat something. She slowly pushed herself into a sitting position.
When Elliot reached the side of her bed, she stretched out her hand to him. She did not want him to feed her.
However, Elliot ignored her. He scooped a spoonful of porridge and brought it to her mouth.
Avery looked at him in a daze. He had clearly seen her reaching for the bowl, so why did he ignore her? She did not need him to feed her!
Did he not say that his patience has its limits?
“Open up.” He looked at her. Her eyes were filled with unconcealable hatred.
“You’re a monster.” Avery’s tone was cold. It was as if she was finally able to see him for what he was.
“I’m a monster. I will go to hell. I’ll drag you along with me.” Elliot’s reaction did not change. He squeezed her mouth open with his long, slender, cool fingers and pushed in a spoon full of porridge.
He fed her the entire bowl, then pulled out a piece of tissue and wiped her mouth.
Avery sat on the bed, letting him “care” for her. Perhaps in his eyes, she was merely just a toy!
People are multifaceted. Elliot has a violent side, but he also has a tender side. Avery had once been moved by that tender side of his.
However, she had finally seen through it. Elliot had not revealed the true form of that tenderness he had shown her in the past!
Before Elliot left the room, he placed Avery’s phone next to her pillow.
After he left, Avery picked up her phone and turned it on. There were countless missed calls, but she had no time to deal with them all.
She found Mike’s contact and called him.
Mike answered immediately. “Avery!”
“It’s me! Mike, Hayden-”
“Hayden is with me. He is fine! He is just unhappy!” Mike’s emotions were running high, and he could not contain his tears. “I heard you were bitten by a wolf. How did such an absurd thing happen?!”
“It’s just a light injury. It’ll be better after a few days,” Avery said lightheartedly before turning serious, “Mike, in the future, no matter what, you can’t allow Hayden to anger Elliot! He hates children-”
“Avery, don’t worry! Take your time to recuperate. I will look after the children. Mike furrowed his brows. “Are you sure you can come home after you recover from your injuries?” Avery’s eyelids fluttered. “I… guess so!”
