She did not know what she was going to say even if she were to go to him.
She had to go to Bridgedale right now.
She would not change her mind even if he were to disagree with her.
Besides, she did not want to drag him into this mess.
She took a deep breath and continued walking…
There was a bend a few feet away.
Once she disappeared around the bend, he would no longer be able to see her.
Elliot’s blood boiled when he saw Avery walking away without even a backward glance.
With reddened eyes, he charged toward the counter! The security guards immediately held him back.
“Avery! Turn around!” Elliot had completely abandoned his pride. He desperately yelled at her despite the numerous people in the airport. “Turn around! Look at me!”
Avery’s feet felt heavy.
It had taken all her energy to make her way to the bend.
Once she was out of Elliot’s line of sight, she leaned against the glass wall and sobbed.
“Make him leave, Mike!” Avery cried as she buried her face in her hands.
Mike frowned and said, “He won’t listen to me. You shouldn’t go to him the way you are right now either. I’ll call Chad!”
After his call to Chad, Mike grabbed Avery’s hand and dragged her away.
When Chad arrived at the airport, he spotted Elliot amongst the crowd.
He was standing at the counter of Gate Four.
Avery’s flight had already taken off.
Elliot’s heart and soul had flown along with her.
This was not the first time she had left him behind.
Five years ago, Avery had left the same way. She did not waver no matter how much he begged her.
He did not expect the same thing to happen again five years later.
Although their separation this time did not mean the end of their relationship, he was hurt all the same.
He had run through several red lights to get to the airport to see her, but she did not even turn around to look at him once.
“How could she be this heartless?” he thought.
Chad walked over to Elliot, then said softly, “It’s late Sir. I’ll take you home.”
Upon hearing Chad’s voice, Elliot, who was standing rigidly, finally reacted.
His eyes were bottomless pits of darkness when he turned to Chad and asked, “Do you know why she left?”
Mike had texted him earlier and had told him everything before he turned off his phone. Chad, however, did not have the courage to tell Elliot what had happened.
When Elliot saw the hesitation in Chad’s eyes, his heart immediately froze!
Even Chad knew the reason why Avery left, and she had only refused to tell him.
The vein on Elliot’s forehead pulsed as he grabbed onto Chad’s collar and roared, “Don’t make me hit you!”
Chad could barely breathe.
“Wesley… Wesley is… In trouble…”
Elliot raised his brows, and the sharpness in his eyes slowly subsided.
He released his grip.
Chad rubbed his throat and lightly coughed a few times.
“Let’s get you home now Sir! There are no flights to Bridgedale left tonight. Besides… I’m sure Avery did not tell you about this because she did not want to get you involved.”
Elliot took a deep breath, then said through gritted teeth, “Why wouldn’t she want to involve me? Did something dangerous happen?”
“I’m not too sure of the details, but I’m sure it’s something serious if they both rushed off to Bridgedale like this,” Chad responded.
“She’s pregnant with my child… Now, she’s risking her life for another man… If she can throw her life away for that man, then what about my child’s life?! She refused to discuss this with me. She doesn’t feel an ounce of sympathy for me! What am I to her?!”
Elliot’s eyes filled with tears as he clenched his fists tightly.
