Intrigued by Avery, Ben took a moment to think before sending a message to Jun.
‘Snap a photo from the front and send it to me.”
‘You can’t be thinking of sending it to Elliot, can you?’
There were heaters inside the mansion and the temperature was slightly warm.
Both Tammy and Avery removed their jackets and sat down on these couch.
Tammy had prepared a lot of fruits and displayed them before Avery.
Avery picked up a peach in surprise and said, “I thought it’s not the season for peaches yet.”
“You can have this anytime of the year you want as long as you have the money. Try it!” Tammy urged.
Avery nodded with a smile.
Jun took the chance and took a picture of her biting into the peach.
The result was great; the structure, lighting and general outlook of the photo were perfect. Avery looked both seductive and adorable in the photo.
Jun sent the photo to Ben and Ben couldn’t help but exclaim after seeing it.
‘Are those arms even real?’
The dress Avery wore inside the jacket was sleeveless, and showed her slim and fair-skinned arms.
‘Doesn’t she look like someone who lost weight after being terminally ill?’ Jun typed.
‘You are such a big mouth. You shouldn’t wish for her to get sick even if she had separated with Elliot!’
Jun felt mistaken. ‘I’m not wishing her ill… You haven’t seen her in person, but it’s even more shocking to look at her in real life!’
Ben instantly wanted to head over for a look, but going alone felt lonely, so he wanted a companion.
He sat on his leather chair thoughtfully, before dragging his finger across the screen of his phone to locate Elliot’s number.
Naturally, he couldn’t directly send Avery’s photo over, or Elliot would be mad, so he sent Elliot a message.
‘Elliot, the financial report for Quarter 1 is being sent to you right now. Look at it when you have the time.’
Shortly after, Elliot replied. ‘Okay.’
Ben sent the financial report over with a smile, and attached Avery’s photo along with it. He stared at the screen after pretending to have accidentally sent the photo of Avery over.
He desperately wanted to know how Elliot would react, but couldn’t see Elliot’s reply even after refreshing the chat a few times.
“Could it be that he didn’t recognize Avery?!” Ben mumbled to himself, “that would be funny!
Ten minutes had passed but still, there was no reply and Ben could no longer contain himself. He stepped out of his office and strode towards Elliot’s office.
Meanwhile, in the President’s office.
Elliot stared at the photo of Avery and scowled. He couldn’t recognize Avery at first, and simply thought that the woman in the photo looked familiar.
It was not after seeing Tammy next to her that Elliot managed to reach the conclusion that the woman holding the peach was Avery.
‘Why has she slimmed down so much? Is she sick? A person couldn’t possibly lose so much weight in such a short period of time if they weren’t sick,’ he thought as his heart sank.
