Chapter 56

“You must be joking” Irish laughed.
“I’m not” Doc Luc said.
“Sorry to say but you must be crazy” Irish said, breathing heavily.
“Irish…” Ethan was saying.
“That’s not my test result! You must be mistaken!!” She screamed.
Doc Luc was a bit shaken by her behavior.

“Irish Levine, I’m not mistaken. This is your test result. You’re Ten weeks pregnant. Why are you being like this, you’re not too young” Doc Luc said and Irish refused to believe him but..
Doc Luc is dmn serious!

Ten weeks?
Exactly Two months and two weeks.

“No! I take contraceptive pills after sex!” Irish yelled.
“Did you checked the expiry date of the pills the last time you used it?” Doc Luc asked.
“No, i didn’t. I..i took an antibiotic for an ear infection, could it have cancelled out my pills?” Irish said and tears filled her eyes when realisation dawned on her.
“It did!” Doc Luc confirmed.
“No! There a mistake somewhere,i still see my menstrual period” Irish said desperately hoping she wasn’t pregnant.

“That’s completely normal, it happens.” Doc Luc said and Irish knew that was true.
“My stomach…it’s still damn flat. No baby is in here!” Irish pulled the hospital gown, revealing her stomach.
Ethan looked at it closely and noticed a very small bump.
“Irish look…a baby is in there” He smiled and Irish looked closely at it too.

How couldn’t she have noticed…

“No, it was probably something i ate” She cried.
“I’m not pregnant Doc Luc, i never had morning sickness,i didn’t even threw up for once, no symptoms at all. You need to do the test again” Irish said.
“The test was done twice and Irish, women have different symptoms, some doesn’t even feel anything at all, your baby bump is yet to be obvious because the pregnancy is just three months and two weeks and i think you have a flat stomach right from the start. Even if your pregnancy clocks nine months,the bump is gonna look like a five month’s” Doc Luc explained.

“Wait…is that brea$ts are fuller?” Irish asked.
“Exactly!” Doc Luc said.
“” Irish cried, she’s indeed pregnant.

“Irish,we had sx ten weeks ago right?” Ethan asked and she nodded.

“I’ll leave now” Doc Luc walked out of the room.
“I..was the last person you had sex with right?” Ethan asked and she nodded again.

“There’s no way else.!” Irish said
“Irish we’re having a baby!” Ethan screamed in excitement and she was touched deeply.

“Irish, com’on I’m ready to accept the baby. I’ll gladly accept it. I love you Irish and be rest assured, im going to marry you before you give birth” Ethan smiled and kssed her fully on the lips.
“Ethan..i don’t want the baby” she bursted into tears.

“What! Why? Don’t you love me? Arin would be happy about it and my parents too. You know how much my dad likes you, I’m going to take care of everything sweetheart.” Ethan assured.

“No,it’s not that” Irish wiped her tears.
“It’s what? Wait…did you sleep with someone else before the night we were together?” Ethan asked and he sighed when Irishwent quiet.

“I didn’t sleep with anyone Ethan! Since I’ve been in California, I’ve only had sx, twice and it was with my ex which is 2years ago” Irish said.
“Then what’s the problem?” Ethan asked



” She’s pregnant!?” Morgan asked.
“Yes boss, Ten months and two weeks. I think Mr Ethan had something with her exactly two months and two weeks ago..looks like he’s responsible for the pregnancy .”

“Then why on Earth are you telling me this?! Is this supposed to be a good news or something” Morgan asked.

“I’m sorry boos”
“Dmnit Javad! We have to do something. I don’t care what it is but we definitely have to something! How come things keep getting better and better for them while we keep losing?” Morgan said.

“I love that lady also, and i had my eyes on her even before Ethan. She’s so beautiful and sweet that I’ve fallen in love with her from the very first day she walked into my Model company! But damn. Ethan was fast enough to win her” Morgan said.

“For the mean time. Keep the poison away until I figure out something next”
” Okay boss, I’ll fill you in later boss, i need to go now.
“Alright Javad, thanks.

Morgan dropped the call, flipping his phone to wherever.

“What’s going on? I heard you saying the poison should be thrown far away” Catherine said, walking out of the bathroom in a robe.
A towel was tied round her wet her too.

“Don’t tell me you’re planning on sparing that slut” She said.
“I’m not! But right now I’m ready to destroy her and everything she love!” Morgan roared.
“Calm down Morgan , what Happened?”
“Irish is fking pregnant”
“What!” Catherine screamed. “Pregnant for who?”

“For Ethan! God damnit.” Morgan cursed.
Catherine fall on the couch for a while paralyzed. This can’t be happening.

If that’s true then she had definitely lost Ethan. No! It must be a joke! This must be a joke. But the look on Ethan’s face said it’s true.

“How did you know?” Catherine asked.
“How are you so sure Ethan is the father? She could have slept with her numerous boyfriend’s” Catherine said hoping and praying what she heard wasn’t true.

“Javad said so. And Ethan was excited” Morgan said.
“So Ethan had been sleeping with that slut! Morgan we have to do something. You’ve to help me get that bitch out of the way!” Catherine said.

Morgan rubbed his Palm in anger. He had always wanted Irish all to himself and hearing she’s pregnant for Ethan is the worst news ever!.

No matter what, he’s going to get Irish. No matter what it takes him! He’s going to get her definitely! And he’s going to use her to haunt Ethan.


“Irish….why? Why are you doing this to me” Ethan asked,close to tears.
He was speaking up after a long silence.

“Ethan I’m sorry. I’m just not ready for this. I’m just 21 Ethan! I can’t handle this. This isn’t what I wanted” Irish cried.
“I’m not going to abandon you Irish. Let’s raise the kid together” Ethan said.

“Ethan… I can’t. I’m going to terminate the pregnancy..I can’t…”
“Don’t you dare!” Ethan almost yelled.

“Why are making me feel like the bad one here. You told me you loved me Irish. You fking told me that shts! Was that all a lie? Were you lying!!!” Ethan yelled.

“No Ethan! I love you. I mean it when I say it and I’m going to saying it again! I love you Ethan but no! I can’t keep the baby. I can’t stand it Ethan, I’m too young for that. I can’t in as a nanny and now as a pregnant lady! What will people say? What will the press say?

What will you family think about me? Your reputation Ethan! My reputation! I’m just a nanny for Christ sake Ethan!” Irish said.

This time tears was rolling from Ethan’s else. He was so disappointed in Irish, she couldn’t keep his baby because of what people will think?

He had thought Irish is going to be different and will be happy to raise a child with him. But no! He just stood and stared at her.


“Javad. Find a way to come around, We will be hosting a new plan” Morgan said.

“Okay boss”



“You need lot of rest Irish”
“If you are this weak, there’s no possible way you can raise this baby” Doc Luc said
Irish wasn’t listening. She know there’s no way she’s going to keep the baby.

She was ready to be discharged but Ethan had insisted on hearing what Doc Luc has to say.
He wasn’t even looking at her or talking to her.

“Okay, thank you Luc” Ethan said and stood up to leave.
Irish stood up after him.
“You need to limit the tears, any slightest thing can make you have miscarriage because it’s still at an early stage” Doc Luc said to Irish and she didn’t even respond before walking out with Ethan.

That’s what she wanted. Miscarriage of get laid of the baby herself.
Her eyes were twice the size it was and they looked so red .

Doc Luc shook his head sadly, he had thought Irish will even think of getting laid of the baby.

Mr and Mrs Harlow had come around but he had told them it’s not cancer and had advised them to go home, Ethan and Irishwasn’t obviously ready to see anyone then.
He really Irish gets someone to talk some sense into her.

Ethan had gone through enough already.


“Catch a cab and go home” Ethan threw dollar bills at his bodyguards.
Irish has never seen him do that but she isn’t going to be surprised at anything he does at this moment.
His bodyguards were astonished too but they knew better than to argue with him.

He got into the driver seat of his car and Irish got in beside him .

They were both silent as he drove out of the hospital.
He was driving so rough and fast that Irish panicked.
He didn’t seem to know what he’s doing,he just drove on, bumping into potholes he should have avoided.

He felt like screaming and destroy things,he wanted to cry till he could no longer cry anymore. This is the woman he had loved!.

“Ethan please slow down” Irish said, rubbing his back.
“Don’t touch me Irish… Please” he said and she withdrew her hand looking so hurt.

“Ethan,I’m going to terminate the pregnancy, You of all people should understand why!” Irish said.
He didn’t seem to listen to her words,his expression didn’t change a bit.
It only hardened.

It was starting to drizzle.
Irish was scared at the rate he was driving.
She started crying silently, she couldn’t believe the monster she had turned him into.
Those eyes were monstrous,they could only belong to a monster, those were not Ethan’s loving eyes.

“Irish I’m so disappointed in you! How can you care about my reputation more than how I feel? I love you Irish! I’ve always did and even when you said we can’t be in a relationship, I accepted that because I cared for you! I don’t want to see you sad. How can you even think of such cruel act of aborting an innocent baby? Are you that cruel?” Ethan yelled.

He had slowed down.
“I’m not cruel Ethan. I’m just protecting you” Irish said.
“You need to protect yourself first! Irish what did I ever did to you? Didn’t I deserve to be happy too? Why can’t the women I love , love me back? Why can’t you have a baby with me Irish Levine!!” He screamed.

That was the first time he will yell and call Irish’s full name.
“Ethan. I’m sorry” Irish said.
“Irish get out of my car” He said slowly.
“Ethan what are you saying?” Irish asked, her eyes ache terribly.
“Please, get out. I don’t want to hurt you” He said, looking straight ahead, he hadn’t even turned to look at her.
“Get out!” He yelled, slamming his hand on the wheel.

She unfastened her seatbelt and slowly opened the car door, hoping he’ll tell her to stay back.
“Ethan,it’s raining. I said I’m sorry” She said,her gaze was getting blurry with tears.
He grabbed an umbrella from the backseat and handed it to her without a word.

She finally alighted from the car, not even bothering to use the damn umbrella. He slammed the door.

“Your luggage will be brought to your house” He said before driving off.

She watched his car till it was out of sight.
She stopped crying then and stared at the umbrella.
She noticed he had added some dollar notes to it…to take a cab home of course.
He hadn’t been so heartless after all.
At least he hadn’t thrown the money at her.

She sneezed, the rain was getting to her.
She just hoped she found a cab soon,she couldn’t even bring herself to use the umbrella. Ethan had left her hands trembling.
This was just a terrible nightmare and she’s gonna keep up with it until someone wakes her up.

She hailed an oncoming cab to a stop.
She got in after mentioning her home address to the cabman.
She hadn’t even noticed how her voice shook.

“Why didn’t you used the umbrella with you? Instead of getting this drenched? The cabman asked her, she didn’t respond and he noticed how far away her eyes looked.
He sighed, wondering what made her look this sad and scared.
She’s drenched and she shivered.

“He left because he was so pissed, he doesn’t want to hurt me right?” Irish asked no one in particular and the driver thought she was going crazy.
“U..uh? Miss?” He asked.
“Maybe i should have stayed there, he was going to drive back to pick me. Can you take me back to where you picked me?” Irish asked the cabman.

“It’s raining pretty heavily and whoever dropped you there isn’t coming back for you. I must say it’s quite irresponsible of him to drop you off in the rain” The cabman said and Irish’s eyes were filled with tears again.

“I understand if you don’t have any money to pay me, you’re probably stranded..” The cabman was saying.

“He left me some money, he’s not so heartless. He’s just pissed for now. He’s going go come back for me” Irish wiped her tears.

The cabman nodded and sighed.
He couldn’t believe she was defending someone who dropped her off in the rain.

Whoever the person is, he’s so lucky to have her.



“We’ve arrived your house miss” The cabman told her.
“Really?” She said, she wasn’t too familiar with the neighborhood and she was so lost in thought,she didn’t even know when the cab came to a stop.

She dropped all the dollar bills Ethan left for her and stepped out of the cab.
“You should take care Miss” The cabman shouted after her before driving away.
She walked into the gate,it was still raining pretty heavily,she didn’t cared to use the umbrella as she dragged her feet to the door.

She knocked on the door, hoping Mrs Gabrielle or any bodyguard will be the one to open it for her but Mrs Helen stood there, looking at her daughter in shock.

“!” She exclaimed in shock.
“What happened?” She asked and Irish walked in.

She dropped the umbrella and headed for the couch, her legs were shaking and she was feeling so cold.
Mrs Helen quickly closed the door and hurried after her.

“What happened?” She asked.
“I’m fine” Irish said, dropping on the couch.

“You don’t look fine! How come you’re drenched when you have an umbrella with you? And you’re supposed to be at your workplace” Mrs Helen said.
“I’m pregnant and fired” Irish laughed.
“What!” Mrs Helen exclaimed.

She knows for sure Ethan is responsible for the pregnancy since things seems serious between him and Irish..but fired?
Ohh..He might not want her stressing herself.

“I understand all of it but how come you’re looking so dejected? Your eyes are so red and swollen like you’ve cried a lot. Irish what’s wrong?” Mrs Helen asked worriedly.

“Nothing is wrong mummy, it’s just a terrible nightmare that i will wake up from soon” Irish smiled, feeling this can’t be happening for real.
No. It can’t.

“You need to pull off your wears,have a warm bath, I’ll lit the fireplace for you” Mrs Helen said, she untied her apron and dropped it on the couch.
She had been making lunch before Irish knocked.

“Pull my dresses? A warm bath? Hell no” Irish laughed and Mrs Helen wondered if she was drunk.
“I’m going to bed” Irish got on her feet.
“You can’t go to bed in this wet clothes or you’re gonna wake up with a fever” Mrs Helen said.
“No,I’m going to wake up in Ethan’s arms” Irish smiled, and walked to her room.



Mrs Helen toweled Irish’s body dry after getting her to take a warm shower.
Irish was ready to go to bed in that wet clothing and Mrs Helen had stopped her and forced her to have a warm bath.
She smiled when she noticed the small tight bump,she’s going to be a grandmother soon but she’s so confused with everything here, Irene is not explaining anything.

Mrs Helen made her put on a thick sweater and blue baggy jeans with socks…she needed everything to feel warm.
“You shouldn’t do this…this is just a dream” Irish ranted while Mrs Helen dried her hair.

Mrs Helen didn’t respond, knowing Irish would be in a better condition when she wakes up.
She put her in bed and draped her blanket over her.

She lit the fireplace in Irish’s room,watched her sleep before finally walking out of her room.
She was so worried, knowing something was wrong.


“Hi Mum” Arusha smiled, walking into the kitchen.
“Arusha, how are you?” Mrs Helen asked.
“I’m fine, starving” He groaned.
“Lunch is ready, I’m just cleaning the kitchen” Mrs Helen said.
“Thank goodness, i should go freshen up” Arusha said.
“Irish is around” Mrs Helen announced and Arusha smiled but he wondered why Mrs Helen is looking unhappy.
“She came to say hi to us. She’s in her room right?” He asked.

“She’s pregnant” Mrs Helen said slowly.
“Huh?” Arusha asked in surprise.
But he was happy, knowing Mr Ethan is responsible, that’ll make Irish finally become his.
“And…fired” Mrs Helen added.
“What!” Arusha shouted.



Irish slept for hours and when she finally woke up, she dreaded opening her eyes.
She prayed everything had been a nightmare, she can’t possibly be in her house.
Pregnant and fired?
She sighed and her eyes finally flew open.

Tears rushed to her eyes, seeing this wasn’t her room in Ethan’s mansion.
She could see Arusha and Mrs Helen staring down at her and she knew everything she had thought to be a nightmare was real.

She was pregnant and she wasn’t ready to keep the baby.
And Ethan had dropped her off in the rain and driven off after saying her luggage will be brought to her house.
She’s fired also!

“Why are you crying? Did someone hurt you?” Arusha asked.
He was still in his school wears, he had refused to freshen up or eat after Mrs Helen told him Irish came home drenched and sad.

“ there really a bump down there?” Irish asked,her voice was low as she pointed to her stomach.
Arusha pulled up her sweater and nodded with a smile.
He hasn’t seen anything more beautiful than this.

“A baby?” He asked in a voice almost close to whisper,he was intrigued and it took all his might not to cry.

“It’s not a baby yet” Mrs Helen said.
“Whatever it is, this is beautiful” Arusha said and quickly wiped a tear that dropped from his eyes.

Irish sat up and kssed his forehead.
“I love you Irish” He said, hugging her tight,he loosened his grip,not wanting to hurt the tiny baby.

~Irish, we’re having a baby!~ Ethan’s words rang in her head and his happy face when he had said that flashed in her eyes.
He had looked like he just discovered a huge box filled with gemstones until she told him she want keeping it.

Arusha looks so intrigued too,she wondered how he’s going to feel when she tells him about what happened.

~Irish I loved you! Why can’t the women I’ve loved , love me back. Why can’t you have a baby with me~ Ethan’s words and sad face filled her mind and she bursted into tears.
He had looked so hurt and helpless.

“Why are you crying? I’m sure Mr Ethan doesn’t want you to go through stress,that was why he made you stop your job”Arusha said.
“Its not that…” Irish sniffed.
“It’s what?”Arusha asked, his heart was breaking at seeing his sister cry. He hates it so much.

“I told Ethan….. I told him I was going to terminate the pregnancy. I told him I can’t keep the baby” Irish said in tears.

“What the he.ll are you saying Irish.”Arusha growled, getting to his feet.
Mrs Helen was startled also. She can’t believe Irish will say such.

“You’re joking right? Why will you say that to him!”
“Because I can’t mother! I keep to it. It feel weird. I’m not ready for all this. I’m not ready to be a mother! I’m not ready for any damn thing!” Irish cried.

Mrs Helen brought her closer and hugged her.
“I’m sorry mother. ” She sniffed and Arusha hugged her too.
“I’m sorry too Irish. For putting through all this. If we’re in Singapore, this won’t be happening. I understand how you feel” Mrs Helen cried.

“We’re sorry Irish. For making you go through all this” Arusha said.

“Hey! What the heck is wrong with the both of you? I don’t regret working to care for you both. Mum, you cared for us when you could and Arusha i know you’re going to care for me when you get older and have the capacity to.

None of you caused this, do not feel bad. It’s meant to happen and I’ll be terminating the pregnancy anyway” Irishsaid.

“What! I thought you’re just joking” Mrs Helen exclaimed.
“Why? You shouldn’t do that please” Arusha said.

“Mother. Ethan’s reputation is at sake! What will the press say? And his family? And other!”

“Irish, you are not terminating this pregnancy. Your life is at stake here!This is Ethan’s baby we are talking about!. ” Mrs Helen said and Arusha nodded in agreement.

“Ethan is hurting a lot. Can’t believe I said those to him” Irish said .
“You shouldn’t have done that” Mrs Helen scolded.

“He was so happy when the doctor announced i was pregnant and he told me he’s going to marry me” Irish blushed and Arusha smiled, seeing her look so happy.

She’s crazily in love with Ethan,she wonder why she had refused to date him. And to think… Did she even said those trash’s?

“Im not going to terminate it ” Irish said.
“Woown! I feel relieved now,” Arusha laughed.
“Did Mr Ethan fire you?” Arushaasked and Irish nodded.
“He left you in the rain?” He asked and Irish hesitated before nodding.

Arusha fumed, brushing his hair back with his fingers angrily.
“He left me with an umbrella and dollars bills for cab, I’m to blame for not using the umbrella. I intentionally got drenched” Irish said.

“Whatever! It was so cruel of him to drop you off like that! he must have gone out of his mind, he’s so lucky to have taken advantage of my likeness for him,if it hadn’t been for that,i won’t spare him a bit” Arusha said angrily.
“Wow, this is actually the first time you’ll be sparing someone that tries to hurt me” Irish smiled.

She won’t blame Ethan. He had gone through a lot of heart breaks already.
“I like Mr Ethan.he’s just one of the most kind-hearted person i’ve met. I respect him a lot or i would never spare someone that dropped off my sister in the rain” Arusha said.

“Ethan isn’t in the best of mood, you should understand he would never do this on a normal day. You would have done the same if you hear someone you wished to have a family with is pregnant for you and was going to terminate it” Irish said.

“Well…. That’s true” They agreed.

“I’m sure he’s going to come get you back to his mansion once he’s calm. And you need to apologise too”Arusha said.
“Yeah” Irisj hoped so but the look that had been on Ethan face doesn’t assure her that he’s going to come back for her.

“Anyway, i need to introduce my friend to you “Arusha said.
“Ohh… does she stay around?” Irish asked, thinking it’s another female friend.
“His name is Ryan” Arusha smiled.
“OMG! Finally”


___Two days later___

Irish checked her phone for the ten thousandth time.


She had sent Ethan tons of apology messages and thousands of call but he never responded.
She had wanted to go to his mansion but Mrs Helen had stopped her.

She was so sad and broken. She must have been so bad to say those words to him. What was she thinking?

She can’t even bare to look at her stomach whenever she’s taking her bath, she feel she’s already a bad mum to the unborn child.

Arusha and his friend had kept her company during the weekend, and they had made her laughed during her sad moments but today is Monday,they had to go to school.

She’s sitting with Mrs Helen in the living room and a movie was playing but Irish wasn’t interested.

She missed Arin so much.
She thought about her sweet moments with Ethan and she was close to tears again.

She hope he’s fine,she knows he’s still gonna come around,she only needs to give him time to absorb everything.

“Mum, once it’s time to make lunch,come get me in my room” Irish said, preparing to stand up.

“Sit Irish, i won’t allow you go in there and start crying. You’ll be here with me. It’s not your fault, every Young mum will think the same” Mrs Helen said.
“But i want to sleep” Irish said.

“Then sleep on the couch, you can place your head on my laps” Mrs Helen said and Irish groaned.



Irish and Mrs Helen were setting the table when Arusha arrived from school.

He approached them in the dining room, breathing hard.
“Are you that hungry?” Irish asked.

“Mr Ethan has been in coma for two days, he had accident not long after he dropped you off on Friday!” Arusha said with a shaky voice.
