Chapter 34

“The girl is alone now,seems her dad and the nanny won’t be coming back home tonight” Gladys contacted Morgan Harlow secretly.

“Okay, thank you” Morgan smiled wickedly before slowly getting up beside the sleeping Catherine.
He then tiptoed out of the room.


“You haven’t slept?” Gabrielle asked Arin who walked into the kitchen in her nightwear, hugging her huge teddy bear to her chest, Dolly was following her around too.
She shook her head ” I can’t”
“Why?” Gabrielle asked, almost done with cleaning the kitchen.
She was about to go sleep with Arin in her bedroom cause every worker here is not to be trusted.
“I’m worried” Arin said sadly.
“I’m worried too” Gabrielle said, she has been thinking about Irish’s mum’s health as she cleaned the kitchen.

“Come here” She consoled Arin by putting her in a hug and rubbing her hair.
“Everything will be fine” She muttered.
“I don’t want to sleep alone tonight, I’m scared. I miss Irish” Arin said.

“Of course you won’t be sleeping alone, let me finish cleaning the kitchen and we’ll both go to my room. I’ll read you interesting bedtime stories” Gabrielle said and Arin nodded with a smile.

“What should i help you with?” She asked.
“I’m almost done Arin, there’s nothing left for you to do” Gabrielle said.

“Okay Gabrielle” Arin said, toying with her teddy bear.
“Go sit in the dining room while i round up,At least Dolly is with you” Gabrielle said, knowing she needed time to think about the bedtime stories to tell Arin.
“Okay” Arin hopped to the dining room.
“Come here Dolly”

She dropped her teddy bear on the table and slipped her footwear off her feet. She patted Dolly a little and played with her too.

She stood in the middle of the spacious dining room and started practicing the ballet they were taught earlier in the day.

It seems more difficult without music but being Arin,she imagined the music playing in her head and started dancing perfectly.

She so much love dancing,she can’t wait to be a grown up so she can show the world how much of a gem ballet is.

“Arin” Someone called her but she didn’t stopped.
She knew it wasn’t Gabrielle, Gabrielle would never have disturbed her while she’s dancing.
“Arin,” She heard again and groaned before stopping.

She saw it was one of the maids named..Gladys through the name tag on her dress.

“What do you want? How dare you interrupt me?” Arin yelled.
She knew her dad would have reprimanded her if he was here but sometimes these maids needs to be yelled at.

“I’m sorry for yelling but what do you want?” Arin asked.
“Why haven’t you gone to bed? Go to bed now” Gladys ordered.
“Excuse me?” Arin asked wondering why the lady had so much command in her voice. Irish who’s her nanny doesn’t even speak to her in that manner.

“Hey! You’re not my nanny and you don’t have the right to order me around, your job here is to take care of the house and not me!” Arin said.
“Shut up you little… Just go to bed” Gladys said sternly. “Now” She added.

“Are you out of your senses Gladys?” Gabrielle asked walking out of the kitchen.
Gladys fumed on seeing her, she never knew Gabrielle was in the kitchen.

“How dare you speak to Arin that way, you’re not allowed to do that okay? You’re just a common maid here, get that into your head!” Gabrielle warned.
“I was only trying to get her to bed….” Gladys was saying.
“By forcing her?” Gabrielle asked.

She never liked Gladys from the start.

“It’s late already” Galdys said.
“You’re not supposed to order her to go to bed in the first place okay? If you try this again, I’ll have to report you to Mr Ethan” Gabrielle said and Gladys walked away angrily.

“Let’s go to bed Arin” Gabrielle said and took Arin’s hand.


“If you can’t do it, just go call on Javad.”

“Well, it’s not like i can’t. I’d do anything to hurt the girl,she’s so rude and spoilt but the thing is..”

“What?.. hurry up, Catherine mustn’t wake up..”
“The girl is not in her room anymore, Gabrielle already took her to her room.

“What! Why did you allow that happen?” Morgan yelled.

📞I wa..” Gladys was saying.

“You know what? You’re so dumb! Get the hell off my phone” Morgan disconnected the call angrily.

“Dmn!” Gladys swore.


__ Next Morning __

“Arusha just go prepare for school, I’ll be with Mum” Irish said for the umpteenth time.
“I don’t want to leave” Arusha said.
“Mum will be fine, she won’t be glad you missed classes because of her”

“You should go to school, you’ll still get to check on her when you’re back, even if you wait, you won’t be able to see her till they’re done with the surgeries and i guess it’ll take more than a day so just go to school, she’ll be fine” Ethan said.

“Okay” Arusha said, stepping down from the bed.
The had slept in an empty ward containing two beds.
Ethan slept in one while Irish and Arusha shared one.

“Go tell my driver to take you home and drop you in school after you’re done preparing” Ethan said.
His driver had went home yesternight and came back this morning.
“Huh? He should drop me in school too?” Ethan asked.
“Yeah” Ethan said.
Arusha glanced at his sister and she shrugged.
“Thank you” Arusha grinned, already imagining the look that’ll be on his everyone’s face when he steps down from the limousine.
“I should leave now” He hugged his sister and waved to.

He beamed as he walked to the door, the conversation he had with Ethan yesternight had been awesome.
Ethan Harlow is even more intelligent than Arusha thought he’d be, he proved himself worthy to be a role model.
He’s everything Irish had mentioned and he didn’t regret choosing to look up to him.

“Will i meet you here when I’m back from school?” Arusha asked, holding the door knob.
“Of course” Ethan said.
“No, he’ll be going to work” Irish said and Ethan glanced at her.
“Ohh” Arusha said,a bit sadly.
“Bye” He added before walking out of the door.

“I never told you i was going to work” Ethan faced Irish.
“You go to work everyday and i wouldn’t allow you miss work today because of my mum”

“I own the work you’re talking about. I can decide not to go and everything will still be in place”
“I know but please you can’t miss work just because of us. You did so much already” Irish said.

“Good morning Mr Ethan, Irish” Doc Luc said, walking into the ward .
“Good morning”
“I know you must have felt so uncomfortable on the bed,you should go home now and have a rest ” Doc Luc said to Ethan.
“No, it’s fine” Ethan said.

“Ohh…okay, the surgeries will begin once the specialists are here,so I’ll want you both to go home,clean up and probably eat before they arrive”
“Ohh..okay, i should call Alex yo drive here after he drops Arin” Ethan said and Irish smiled.

They had talked to Arin and Gabrielle over the phone this morning and she miss the little girl overnight,she missed dressing her up for school too.

“Hey Alex.” Ethan said into the phone.

” Good morning Mr Ethan”.
” Good morning, drive straight to the hospital after you drop Arin”

“I dropped her already, I’ll be coming right away.”

“Ohh… okay.

“Do you need anything before your driver arrive?” Doc Luc asked.
“No, we’re fine… Irish do you need anything?” Ethan asked.
“No” Irish shook her head even though she badly wanted to take water.
“I guess the young sir has gone to school” Doc Luc said.
“Yeah” Irish smiled.
“Alright then” Doc Luc said before walking out of the door.

“Alex will get here soon” Ethan said to irish who was repacking her hair.
He smiled as their gazes locked.

“Why..are you being so nice to me?” Irish asked.
“You think there’s a reason?” Ethan asked.
“I know you’re a philanthropist Ethan but do you want anything from me… I’ll..gladly give you” Irish said.

“You will?” Ethan asked.
“Yes” Irish shifted closer to him.
She has feelings for Ethan and at this point she doesn’t even care if he finds out or not.
What lingers in her mind right now is if he feels the same way for her.

She had caught him stare at her several times….but that doesn’t mean he feels the same way for her too.

“What i want from you is not the reason I’m doing all these, i helped you because i wanted to, nothing attached.”
“Okay,I’m glad you really want something from me, I’ll gladly do anything for you?” Irish said.

“I like you Irish. I have feelings for you” Ethan said and her heart pumped twice faster.

“And i want to know if you trust me enough to put your heart in my care” Ethan added and Irish felt her world spin.

She swallowed hard, wondering if this was a dream.
‘Yes…yes…yes’ Her mind screamed but her eyes and mouth remained pinned.

Her cheeks were almost the same colour as red roses.

“Good morning Mr Ethan” The door opened.

Alex, Javad and Carl stepped in and with one glance at Irish.. Javad knew what was going on.


Let’s Aww smile🥰💯
