Chapter 61

” JoWhat went wrong at the hospital?” Mr Harlow asked Robbins.
“Nothing, Mr Harlow” Robbins said.
“Will you stop pretending not to know anything and tell me the reason my son’s looking so sad. Or you’ll be fired!” Mr Harlow threatened sharply.

“I swear I’m not sure, Mr Harlow. We were not with them in the doctor’s office,we only stood by the door.

I only noticed Irish left with Morgan Harlow and Mr Ethan came out looking so dejected” Robbins said.

“No, Mr Ethan” Javad cut in and Mr Harlow turned to him.
“Irish left with Morgan because of her greediness. She loves Morgan” Javad said
“I..i don’t think Irish can do that” Mr Harlow said.


“She did just that Mr Harlow, I’m so disappointed and hurt she could do that to Mr Ethan” Javad said, feigning sadness.

Mr Harlow walked back into the house and confirmed to Mrs Harlow that Irish had indeed left Ethan for Morgan.

“I can’t believe this, Irish won’t do that” Mrs Gabrielle said.
“But she did just that” Mrs Harlow said,pissed.
Arin was laying asleep in her arms, she had cried herself to sleep and they have to call Doc Luc before she wakes cause she’s going to fall sick.

“Could it be that Morgan threatened her or something?” Mrs Harlow held her breath.
“No” Mr Harlow said
“She wants to make Ethan feel the pain he made her felt. Revenge” Mr Harlow said,still shaken by the whole incident.
Could Irish really do that?
“I can’t believe she’s trying to revenge after acting all sweet, maybe Jessica was right about her all along” Mrs Harlow said.
“Ethan indeed hurt her but she should understand the reason he acted that way, she knew about his history with Morgan,she knew about everything. Why would she do that!” Mr Harlow said.
“I think we should wait till Ethan’s ready to talk and hear fully from him” Mrs Gabrielle said.
“Ethan talked already, he isn’t going to add to what he just said, i doubt if he’s going to come out of his room anytime soon. All thanks to Irish, he’s really hurt as she wants” Mrs Harlow said in contempt.
“I can’t even believe we were actually expecting that heartless thing!” She yelled, almost startling Arin.

“Com’on Veronica, you don’t have to yell. I’ll go call Doc Luc now, he needs to be here before Arin is awake ” Mr Harlow said and walked upstairs to his room.
His heart ached as he heard Ethan cry while walking past his room.

This is just so crazy!!


_____Ivy Royals___

“Okay, Princess Olivia Louis of King City” Jessica said and Olivia went pale.
“Guys I’ll be back”Arusha said to them before walking out of the classroom, he thought they were having girls talk and needed to excuse them plus the conversation seems to be pretty serious.

Jessica looked pretty upset, she had a fairly hot temper and even Olivia knew about it.
Olivia sighed, wiping the sweat off her forehead.

“Explain this” Jessica said, laying a magazine on the desk…
Olivia glanced across the page and there she saw it .

A photograph of herself,three months ago at a Royal wedding they had attended in England with her father and mother.
The caption simply read “Her Royal Highness Princess Olivia of King City with her father, reigning Prince Alexandre Louis and mother Queen Anastasia”

Jessica had seen the magazine in her godmother’s room yesterday, after they arrived from the jewelry store.

“I thought we were friends,it turns out i didn’t even know who you were” Jessica said.

“Jessy..i didn’t mean to keep this from you guys” Olivia said,after a long silence.
She’s feeling so bad Jessica found out this way.
“Does Arusha knows?” Allysia asked.
“He doesn’t” Olivia said with tears in her eyes.
“What! I thought he knew” Jessica said.
“No, I’m so sorry you found out this way Olivia, i didn’t mean to keep it from you guys. I just don’t like my identity getting revealed, everyone will start treating me differently! I hate that! I want to be treated like everyone else”Olivia wiped her tears and Jessica stood up to hug her.

She was glad everyone is out for lunch break.

“Look, i love you Jessica and you’re someone I’d love to tell everything about me but i had no choice, do you think i want everyone here kssing my a$s, waiting on me hand and foot, calling me your Royal Highness or Excellency, preventing me from doing any worthwhile work. This is only where I’m normal and real,this is the only place people do not bow to me and believe me,i love it. Being in the palace, having people who are far older than me bow to me is just so miserable but there’s nothing i can do, whether i want it or not. Please understand me Jessy, i hadn’t meant to keep this from you” Olivia said and Jessica sighed.

“Sit” Jessica said and they both sat.
“Believe me, you’re the first princess I’ve seen that hides her identity just because she wants to be treated like everyone else. I can’t believe i once called your father an infamous safecracker. I’m so sorry” Jessica apologized and Olivia nodded.
“You’ve really taught me not to judge people based on appearance.Olivia, no one knows you’re a princess,we all treated you badly and even when you had all the chance and power to punish us, you didn’t do a thing. I’m so sorry” Jessica said.
“I should apologize for keeping things from my friend instead”Olivia said.
“No, there’s a reason you did that and i understand. Now i know why Mr Natalie gladly allows you eat in the class claiming you have this so called phobia! ” Jessica said and they both laughed.

“What are you going to do about Arusha,are you going to tell him?”
“I have to but I’m not ready yet, it’ll ruin everything once he knows”
“Why? Maybe he’ll like the idea of being in love with a princess”Jessica smiled.
“That’s the point, my father would never support our relationship because I’m not to be intimate with anyone that’s not of Royal birth.” Olivia said sadly, she loves Arusha so much and she could feel it that he loves her too.

“Wow!” Jessica looked startled.
Arusha would be so heartbroken.
“Do you need your father’s permission?” Jessica asked.
“Of course and not only his permission but his members of parliament as well,there are twenty of them and a hundred members of the family court,i have to do as I’m told,i have to follow the damn tradition” Olivia said miserably.
“Wow! Being a princess is not as fun as it looks” Jessica said.
“I bet it isn’t. Anyway, I’m sorry once again for keeping this from you”
“I’m sorry i got so mad, i just felt so hurt you hadn’t told me” Jessica reached out a hand and touched Olivia’s arm.

“I can’t believe i never suspected. Though i’ve always wondered why the daughter of an infamous safecracker is using such an expensive phone” Jessica teased and they both laughed.


“I guess it’s all settled. I’m starving,let’s eat” Arusha said, walking into the class and smiling innocently at them.
Olivia felt her heart ache.

He deserves to know.



“What the he.ll are you doing Irish!” Mrs Helen yelled a Jot Irish who was throwing her things into the suitcase.
“I’m going with Morgan Mum!” Irish repeated for the hundredth time.
“Are you going crazy? What are you saying! Have you been enchanted?” Mrs Helen asked, breathing heavily.
She couldn’t believe this.

“I clearly know what I’m doing Mum, you know how much pain Ethan caused me, he’s going to get it back.” Irish said, zipping the suitcase aggressively.

“That’s lame, you are the reason he did so. Ethan would never hurt you” Mrs Helen said.
“He did! He even made you fall sick, I’m never going to forgive him for that,i can’t let that go. I still love him but he has to feel the pain i felt” Irish said.
“Irish, Ethan wasn’t the one who made me sick,i was down with the flu because of cold” Mrs Helen said.
“No! You were down with fever because you were so busy consoling me and didn’t even have the time to rest” Irish said.
“That’s not so”
“I don’t care, you know I’m revengeful right” Irish said.

“I do but i thought you forgave Ethan already”
“That easily? He.ll no! I had my plans” Irish laughed.
“Irish please,you can’t do this to him,you can’t do this to us” Mrs Helen said.

“I can’t be stopped Mum, i made up my mind already,it felt so great to see that pain in his eyes, i want him to feel more of it. I’m not going to Morgan’s house for any other reason,i don’t even love him one bit but Ethan must get back the pain i felt” Irish said, determinedly.

“Are you crazy! This devil of a guy is married!” Mrs Helen yelled.
“I know and i don’t care about anything at the moment. Bye Mum, I’ll be back in a week” Irish grabbed her suitcase.
“What am i going to tell Arusha?” Mrs Helen asked in voice that shook slightly.
“The truth. Bye” Irish pecked her cheeks.
Mrs Helen watched her leave in disbelief, this can only be a dream.

Irish walked out of the door and one of Morgan’s bodyguards was there,ready to help her with her luggage.

They both headed outside and Morgan willingly opened the car door for her.
“Thank you” She said with a smile, getting into the car.
Ethan got in beside her.
A bodyguard got in the front and the driver started driving .

Two more cars consisting of bodyguards followed them from behind.
“Irish, you don’t know how happy i am to have you choose me over him, i didn’t expect that” Morgan grinned broadly.
“Does that mean you’ve been admiring me secretly?” Morgan asked, licking his lips.
“No” Irish replied bluntly.
“Ohh” Morgan covered his disappointment with a smile.
“They why did you choose to come with me?” Morgan asked.
“I only chose to come with you to hurt him. Nothing else” Irish said.
“Anyway, there’s still some hope you’ll get to love me during your stay in my house, I’m a very sweet person, I’ll have the maids attend to your every need and have them refer to you as ‘Queen Irish’ ” Morgan said.
“You don’t have to do that ” Irish smiled shyly.
“Why not? You’re my queen and the fact that you are carrying his baby won’t change that. I’d do anything for you”
“You’re as sweet as you said” Irisj said.
“I told you” Morgan said, his head feeling like it would burst soon.
He felt he’s starting to win her heart.


“If only i knew you’d be coming with me, i would have had the maids set up your room like a Queen’s. I guess you’ll have to sleep in my room tonight till the room’s set up because i won’t have you stay in that room, it doesn’t befit the love of my life”Morgan said.
“How’s Catherine going to take this? I cant believe i hadn’t even thought of her,i was only thinking of hurting Ethan back” Irish sighed.
“Catherine is going to welcome you with open arms, she’ll be so happy to have you in the house” Morgan said.
“Yes” Morgan smiled.



“He.ll no! I’m not going to allow this, get out of this house in a minute” Catherine yelled at Irish who surveyed the living room.
It was a beautiful house, though not as exquisite as Morgan’s mansion.
She had been stunned when the maids rushed to collect her luggage and bow to her.
Ethan never allows bowing.

“Catherine, you need to chill” Morgan whispered to her.
“She hates Ethan already and she left him. This is your chance to get him”
“Really? She left him?” Catherine asked.
“Yes” Morgan said.

“, you’re welcome Irene” Catherine smiled sweetly.
“Huh?” Irish asked.
“I’m sorry to have behaved that way,i was upset by something before you came in, you’re highly welcome in here. Come with me,I’ll show you to your room” Catherine said, grabbing her hand.
Irish was surprised.

“No, she’ll be staying with me in my room tonight till her room is completely set up”Morgan said.
“Perfect! I should show her round the house then and introduce her to the staff” Catherine said, smiling.
“Would you like to eat first?”Morgan asked Irish who nodded.
“I would love to eat and freshen up first” Irish said.
“Alright,go freshen up while i tell the cooks to prepare a special delicacy for you” Catherine beamed.

Morgan took Irish’s hand and led her towards the stairs to his room.
Every worker bowed as they walked passed them and Irish was greatly impressed.



“OMG! Stop hitting her please” Irish said, running to the rescue of a maid Catherine was seriously hitting.
She just finished freshening up, Morgan had led her back to the living room.
She was so surprised to see him not stopping Catherine

“You’re fired!” Catherine said to the maid who pleaded in tears.
She had stopped hitting her but the lady’s nose was bleeding and her eye was a bit swollen.

“You shouldn’t hit her, you have no right to do that” Irish said.
“This is my house! And they are my workers,I’ll do to them whatever pleases me” Catherine stated clearly.
Irish sighed…”I know right but what was her offense?”
“You won’t believe she didn’t bow to me when i walked past her” Catherine fumed.
“Excuse me?” Irish was stunned.

“You’re hitting her because she refused to bow? You hit and fire them when they refuse to bow?” Irish turned to Morgan who wasn’t saying anything.
“Of course, they know they are meant to bow to their employers,not bowing is a sign of disrespect and a worker who disrespects his employer should be fired immediately. That is how things are done here” Catherine said.

“They are your workers,i know but i don’t think hitting one’s worker has been legalised,you have the right to fire them but not hit them” Irish said.
“This is not Ethan’s house where he doesn’t have control over his workers,i know you’re used to that lifestyle but that’s not how things are done over here, you’ll be staying here now,you should get used to it” Catherine said.

“And you, you’re fired!” Catherine said to the maid.
“Go pack your things!” She yelled.
“Morgan, won’t you say something?” Irish asked.
“What do you want lovie?” Morgan asked with all sweetness.
He looked like he was ready to do anything for her.

“Please don’t make Catherine fire her, this place might be her only source of income, please” Irish pleaded, knowing how tough the struggle is out there.
She has passed through that stage and she doesn’t hope for anyone to go through that hardship and she was so moved by the lady’s tears.
“Please” Irish repeated and Morgan sighed, glancing at Catherine who glared at him.
“I think you should plead with her instead” Morgan said to Irish.
“Catherine please,do not fire her, she isn’t gonna repeat that disrespectful act,will you?” Irish asked the maid who quickly shook her head.

“Fine” Catherine said.
“Thank you so much ma’am, thank you. I promise i won’t repeat that. Thank you” The maid said happily.
“Just get out of my sight” Catherine rolled her eyes and the maid quickly stood up, bowed and left hurriedly.

“Come with me to the dining room,the table is set” Catherine said to Irish.
“Okay, thanks” Irish said, walking behind her and taking note of the environment.

They walked into the dining room and Irish was amazed at the amount of dishes arranged on the table.
It was almost overwhelming.

“Wow .. all this for me?” She asked.
“Yes, Morgan is more wealthy than you thought,even wealthier than Ethan but he just doesn’t like showing off” Catherine smiled and Morgan winked thankfully at her.
“Really?” Irish asked, glancing at Morgan who feigned shyness by staring at his feet.
“Yes, i know Ethan can never afford to set his dining table up like this, he eats like a miser” Catherine said.
“Ohh” Irish smiled inwardly.

“I would love you both to join me” Irish said.
“No,it’s all for you” Catherine said.
“I can’t possibly finish this,besides, I’d love some company while eating and didn’t you say you’re going to fill me in on the system of this house,we can do that over lunch” Irish said.

“That’ll be great” Catherine said and they both sat with Irish for lunch.



“Your cook is really good” Irish said with a nod, enjoying the meal.
“Well..there are thirteen of them” Catherine said.
“What!” Irish exclaimed, startling Morgan.
Catherine knew why she was surprised. Ethan had only one cook.
“I’m sorry but aren’t they too much to be in the kitchen?” Irish asked.
“I guess our kitchen will be the first place i should show you then,it’s very wide and spacious” Catherine said.
“Its not about the size but the people,thirteen people in the kitchen?”
“Well..they do not get to be at the kitchen at the same time,there’s the head cook who’s there all the time but the rest of them alternate shifts,just three people are allowed to be with her for breakfast,three for lunch,three for mid lunch and three for dinner.

“Ohh… interesting” Irish smiled.
“I guess it isn’t that way in Ethan’s house” Morgan said.
“Of course it isn’t,he only has one cook whom he made to be preparing meals for everyone because he believes she owes him” Catherine snarled.

“That’s not true!” Irish snapped.
“Mrs Gabrielle voluntarily offered to be the cook and she had even turned down Ethan’s offer severally to bring in another cook. She loves cooking and feels she’s the only one who can protect Ethan from being poisoned also after the death of Carrle. That was why she devoted her time to making the house meals, she even refuses anyone’s help except mine” Irish explained.
“Ohh” Morgan said.
“Whatever” Catherine said,she couldn’t believe Ethan told Irish about Carrle already,he must really trust her.


“You should know Carrle” Irish said to Catherine observing her deeply.
There was panic in her eyes but it quickly disappeared as soon as it appeared.
“Of course i know Carrle, i liked her even though she was against my every move in that house! She almost stopped Ethan from getting married to me” Catherine said with anger in her eyes.
“Ohh” Irish smiled.

They all continued their meal in silence and Morgan was almost lost staring at Irish who had worn pink shorts and white sweatshirt after freshening up,her hair was in a tight ponytail which highlighted her beautiful face and she even had striking eyes.
He’s attracted to her, he has never seen anyone look this beautiful without wearing make up,she was much more natural than the women he was accustomed to who always wear makeup, perform breast and butt enhancements..

He’s so happy Ethan lost this gem to him.

Catherine, noticing Morgan was almost drooling over Irish couldn’t help but feel jealous. She feels so insecure about Irish’s natural beauty.
Who wouldn’t drool over her?
Well…she should be stuck here with Morgan while she makes a move on Ethan..

“Okay, about the house system” Catherine broke the silence.
“Ohh..yeah” Irish said, she was still surprised about Catherine’s sudden kindness to her.
Isn’t it the same lady who had emptied a bowl of ice cream on her?
And why would a wife be so comfortable with her husband bringing in another lady.
She hopes Catherine doesn’t have something tricky up her sleeves.

“I know you must be so used to Ethan”s house system that you’ll find things here a bit awkward and i should make this clear, you have no right to change any of this house rules,you have to go with the flow”

“Ohh..okay but what if I’m not comfortable with it?” Irish asked.
“Then you’ll have to avoid it but no changing of anything,i hate it when people don’t do as i want” Catherine said.
“Alright then” Irish said.

“Okay,so here, the workers are to bow to their employers and any of them who refused to do that will get punished and fired immediately…” Catherine started.

Irish nodded with a deep sigh after Catherine was done.
“Once we’re done eating,I’m going to show you round the house and introduce you to the workers” Catherine said.
“Alright” Irish said, sipping a pineapple juice which almost made her throw up.
“Can i have strawberry juice only and strawberry cake and whipped cream for dessert” Irish said.
“Of course, anything you want” Morgan smiled and quickly ordered the cooks to bring in what Irish wants.
“Thank you” Irish smiled.
