Avery rushed out the door almost immediately.
Mike’s reflexes were quick and he grabbed her in the nick of time!
“Avery! Elliot and Jun have already picked her up. She’s no longer in danger!” Mike looked at her cold, resentful eyes and took a deep breath. “Don’t be impulsive like her! She’s already an adult now, not a child! Do you think she did the right thing when she went recklessly to Rosacus City all by herself?”
Avery yanked his arm away. “Her actions are wrong, but what you said earlier was wrong too. Don’t tell a person to be kind if you’ve never experienced what they went through. You’ve never gone through her pain, so you have no right to judge her.” Her words left Mike speechless and there was no way for him to resist.
“I’ll be frank with you. Elliot was the one who told me to come back and keep watch over you. He said he’d bring Tammy back unharmed.” Mike dragged Avery onto the sofa and sat her down, “It takes two hours to go to Rosacus City and another two to come back. That makes four hours. You’re feeling unwell, right?
It’d be best for you not to go through all that.” Avery’s eyes turned red. She pursed her red lips and kept quiet. Mike was helpless when he saw her like that. “Come on, don’t do that!
If you really want to go, I’ll drive you there. It’s not a big deal. But I must say that Tammy “No! Don’t talk about her!” Avery interrupted. “Tammy wouldn’t have chosen to do something stupid if she had other ways to relieve the pain in her heart.” Mike raised his hands in a gesture of surrender.
“I wasn’t going to accuse her of anything. I was just going to tell you to persuade her when she comes back. She can’t continue down this road. Aside from the danger she’ll bring to herself, Jun probably won’t be patient enough to tolerate her all the time.”
Avery shot him a cold look.
He covered his mouth and said, “Okay, I think it’s better for me not to say anything. But don’t just ignore what I said. What she did today was just too dangerous. Chad said that Chelsea would have killed and skinned Tammy on the spot if she still had that temper from before.”
Avery’s expression turned gloomy and she said emphatically, “If Chelsea had the guts to do that, I’d dig up her ancestor’s graves in addition to killing her.” “…Hey now, take it easy there! I’ll get you a glass of water. Calm down.” Avery sighed heavily.
All of a sudden, Robert burst into tears in the baby cot.
She immediately stood up and carried the baby.
“Did I scare you because my tone was too fierce earlier?” she said apologetically, “I’m sorry, Darling. I forgot you were there.”
“Robert is probably hungry. He last drank milk two hours ago.” Mrs. Cooper came over immediately when she heard the child crying. “I’ll make him some.”
Mike came over with a glass of water and put it on the table. He then took Robert from here arms,
“Have you eaten lunch yet?” Avery asked.
“I’m not hungry. I’ll eat when I am.” Mike gestured at the water glass on the table with his chin. “That’s for you.”
Avery picked up the water glass and took a sip.
“I heard that you went out pretty early today. I’m sure you’re feeling really tired now, so why don’t you get some sleep? They won’t be back until evening.” Mike said, “Hayden and Layla’s birthdays are tomorrow. What are you going to do if your exhaustion spills over to tomorrow?” Mike’s words calmed Avery down successfully.
Back at Rosacus City, Elliot and Jun managed to smoothly meet Tammy when they arrived at the police station. Her state of mind was beyond what they had imagined.
Not only was she not crying, but there were also no signs of fear or remorse on her face either. She did not seem surprised or grateful when she saw them, as if she had yet to exit her resentment-filled mindset.
“Elliot,” Chelsea walked to Elliot’s side. “I didn’t do anything to her. She was the one who almost killed me.”
Chelsea’s neck was tied with gauze.
“Do you think you deserve pity?” Elliot retorted indifferently. “I wouldn’t pity you even if Tammy did kill you. You should have died a long time ago.”
