It was the first time she had slept in at Elliot’s house.
When she walked out of the room, the group of men in the living room shifted their gaze toward her.
Avery was dressed in a loose nightgown with her disheveled hair falling to her shoulders, framing her clean, spotless face.
She did not expect Elliot to have guests that day.
Elliot and his guests stared sternly at her as if they did not expect her to suddenly appear.
Something snapped in Avery’s head.
When she realized the awkward situation she was in, she instantly turned around and made her way back to her room.
At that moment, Mrs. Cooper walked over and pulled her in the direction of the dining room.
“You must be hungry, Madam. You were sleeping soundly when I went to your room earlier, so I didn’t wake you.”
“Those people… Who are they?” Avery stammered.
“They’re friends of Master Elliot. They came to visit him. Don’t worry. It’s fine even if you don’t greet them,” answered Mrs. Cooper.
“Okay,” Avery responded.
She did not even greet Elliot when she saw him, why would she greet his friends?
If she had known that he was having guests over, however, she would have woken early and spent the whole day out.
Elliot’s friends in the living room were very interested in Avery.
“Elliot, why’s that young girl staying with you? Is she a caretaker? Or maybe…”
“We’re all adults here. Elliot is a man, after all. It’s normal to have a young lady in his house! Ha ha!”
When Elliot did not respond, everyone shut their mouths and dropped the subject.
“Do you guys know Avery Tate from Tate Industries? They say she’s Jack Tate’s daughter—”
“I know. She called me Friday night asking for an investment, but I hung up before she could finish talking.”
“She really is something. What does her father’s debt have to do with her? She must be insane for jumping into this mess!”
“Young people are reckless like that! I looked into their new product, but it’s a total bust! A self-driving system might sound cool, but the conditions are complicated and uncontrollable. Whoever invests in it would be an idiot!”
