Chapter 14
In Avery’s eyes, Elliot’s face had turned into that of a demon baring its sharp fangs at her.

“Why?” she asked bitterly. “Even if you didn’t want kids, there’s no need for you to say such cruel words!”

Elliot’s deep eyes were cold as he said, “What if you decided to take the chance if I didn’t make myself clear?”

Avery took a deep breath and shifted her gaze from him.

She was terrified. It felt like she was about to fall into a bottomless pit.

Her reaction piqued Elliot’s curiosity.

His lips curled up as he mocked, “You’re not really thinking of having my kid, are you?”

Avery glared at him.

“I suggest you take my warning seriously. You know the kind of person I am. My actions will be much more severe than my words. Don’t test me if you want to live,” Elliot said, then turned to look out the window.

Avery clenched her fists and huffed, “Don’t worry, I will never give you children. You know how much I despise you. The most urgent matter right now is to quickly get a divorce!”

The babies did not belong to him alone.

If she gave birth, she would be doing it for herself.

Once the kids were grown, she would tell them that their father was dead!

“Now isn’t the time. We’ll talk about it again once my mother’s get better,” Elliot said.

His tone was calmer. Perhaps her words were effective.

It made him realize that he was not the man she wanted.

“Don’t drag it out for too long, then,” Avery said.

She furrowed her brows and was a little anxious.

Her pregnancy would begin to show if they delayed things further.

She would not be able to keep it from him by then, and would definitely be forced to get an abortion.

“You’re in a hurry to divorce me. Is there some urgent matter you need to attend to?” Elliot asked as his cold eyes fell on her, trying to see through her.

Avery’s heart suddenly skipped a bit.
