When His Eyes Opened Chapter 849

No matter how you looked at it, Elliot was in the wrong this time. Even if there was something he could not talk about, what did Avery do wrong to deserve this? Mike got into the passenger seat and fastened his seat belt, then remembered what Mrs. Cooper asked him to do.

He pulled out his phone and called Tammy. Over in Bridgedale, Tammy immediately drove over to Avery’s place after receiving Mike’s call.

Avery had taken medication for her fever the night before, but her fever only subsided temporarily. In the morning, her fever came back.

She had planned on explaining the change in her relationship with Elliot to the children after she got up that morning.

However, she was worried that she would pass her fever to the children, so she spent the entire time resting in her room.

After Tammy entered the room, she shut the door behind her. Avery heard her and opened her eyes.

“Are you not feeling well, Avery?” Tammy approached the bed and touched Avery’s forehead. “You’re a little warm. Did you take any medication?”

“I did.” Avery gazed at Tammy and asked weakly, “Who called you here?” “Mike called me.” Tammy sat by the bed and began to sob a few seconds later.

Avery was stunned.

“Avery, I thought I was having a rough time, but you’ve got it worse than I do…

Why are our lives like this? I’m so upset! I feel like crying every day but I’m afraid to cry in front of other people. I’m worried they would laugh at me. He’s just a man.

There are plenty of them in the world. I could just pick any one of them… But my heart aches every time I think of how the man I’ll be with in the future won’t be Jun.”

Avery listened to Tammy’s woes and quickly sated up.

“Lie down, Avery. I’m fine.” Tammy helped Avery lie back down on the bed. “Maybe I had it too easy in the first half of my life, so going through a lilttle bit of hardship now feels like the world is crumbling around me.

You’re so much braver than I am. I’ve always been envious of you. Not only can you take care of yourself, you’re also so good at taking care of the kids. I can’t even take care of myself.”

“I’m not as brave as you think, Tammy,” Avery said slowly.

She thought of how she had cried her eyes out at the airport when she broke up with Elliot yesterday.

She also recalled how she had fallen several times when she ran to the airport in the snow. If the cars on the road were driving just slightly faster at the time, she would not have a fever today, but would be at the hospital after a car crash instead.

Tammy gazed at Avery’s haggard yet flushed face and asked, “Why is Elliot marrying Chelsea Tierney?”

“He didn’t say,” Avery said coldly. “It doesn’t matter anymore.” Tammy wanted to comfort her, but her mind was blank. “Get some sleep, Avery! I’ll go check on Layla and Hayden.”

“Alright.” Avery was exhausted, but every time she fell asleep she would wake up shortly after. It was as if a rock was pressing down on her heart and she could barely breathe.

Her lack of sleep was probably the cause behind her neverending fever.

Tammy walked out of the room and went to see the two children. Hayden was working on a new puzzle in the living room while Layla sat on a stool next to him and watched intently.

Neither of them made a sound and were very well-behaved.

It was slightly different than usual.

Tammy watched them for a bit, then broke the silence and said, “Elliot Foster broke up with your mother.” The children’s heads immediately shot up and they stared at Tammy at the same time.
