Chapter 71

Morgan walked into the living room and Irish stood up.
She had planned to go with him to his room before coaxing him to tell her whatever he knew about Carrle’s’s death.

She noticed the excitement on his face as he approached her,he seemed to be in a hurry also.

“I just got a call from MAI pharmaceuticals, they want me to come now” Morgan smiled.
“You’ll be awarded the contract?” Irish asked.
“Hopefully” Morgan said.
“So you’ll be going there now?” Irish asked.
“Of course,i need to get dressed and run along. I can’t miss this opportunity” Morgan said.
“When will you be back?” She asked.
“I might be late, don’t wait up” He said and patted her shoulder gently before rushing to his room.

Irish slammed herself on the couch knowing she just missed the chance to get to know more about Carrle’s death again.
Morgan might be back late and he’ll obviously be tired to say anything or even respond to her.
Well..he might not be tired when he’s back,she’s going to wait up.
She can’t miss this again when tomorrow is the last day she’ll be here.


“Ma’am,you need to be careful with your movements so you won’t hurt the baby” Maria said, she was alarmed when Irish slammed herself on the couch.
Irish obviously forget sometimes that she’s pregnant.
“Thanks Maria” She sighed.



Morgan returned late like he had said but Irish was still waiting up for him.
She was dressed in her pajamas already and had told Maria to go to bed.
Most of the workers were asleep also.

“You waited up?” Morgay asked and Irish nodded.
He looked a bit tired
“Thank you,but you shouldn’t have” Morgan was touched by Irish’s care.
“It’s fine,i just wanted to make sure you’re home safely. Do you want me to dish out your dinner?” She asked, knowing the meal would probably clear his tiredness.
“No, i had something on the way. I should go to bed now” Morgan yawned and Irish felt sad her waiting was in vain.

There’s still a day…she comforted herself with the thought.

“Were you awarded the contract?” She asked.
“Not yet but i was assured I’ll be awarded the contract, I’ll be going there tomorrow morning to sign some papers and then it’ll be mine” Morgan smiled sleepily.
“You’ll be leaving the house tomorrow also!” Irish asked.


“Goodnight” He kssed her cheeks.
“Good night” She sighed.


__Next Day__

Morgab returned home drunk in the afternoon,in celebration of the MAI pharmaceuticals contract he had been awarded.
He smiled happily as Irish and some bodyguards helped him to his room.

They placed him on the bed and left, leaving Irish with him.
“I won it!” He laughed but Irish was less concerned.
She was sad she’ll be leaving without really knowing if Morgan is involved in Carrle’s death cause obviously he’s drunk and will be sober by night or tomorrow.
She had packed her luggage already and told Maria to pack hers also because they’ll be going for a hangout tomorrow.

Well she had enough evidence against him already,that should be enough to put him in jail.
She was about leaving his room when she remembered he’s known to leak informations when drunk.
She quickly turned back to him.

“Morgan,you wanted to tell me about how Javad and Gladys is involved in Carrle’s death” She said bluntly without coating words.
“Ohh.. Carrle’s death? She’s dead. Sh.. she’s dead” Morgan said drunkenly.
“I know she’s dead but were you involved in her death? Did you sent Javad and Gladys to do it?” Irish asked.

“No” He shouted. “Javad and Catherine did it! I told them to do it and th..they did”Morgan laughed.
“ mean.. Javad and Catherine poisoned Carrle?” Irene asked in a shaky voice.
“Yes..they poisoned her dinner and she’s rotting in hell now, I hate her so much…. She seems to be the reason Ethan is richer than me! She’s died now” Morgan smiled, pulling the bed cover over his head.
He laughed under it, speaking gibberish.
It took a while for Irish to gain her momentum,she had suspected Morgan knew about it,she shouldn’t be so surprised now.
Carl had told her to keep her emotions aside and that’s what she’s gonna do.
She slowly pulled the bed cover from Ethan’s head.

She slowly walked to the door,staying with such a murderer almost want to make her puke.
She felt like hitting him over and over again for the crimes he had committed.

“H..hey. Don’t you want to know about your fat..her’s death?” Morgan’s drunken words brought her legs to a halt.
She turned sharply.

“My..m..y my father? What did you do to my father?” Irish asked, breathing heavily.
She knew her father died after the accident that almost took her mother’s leg too. That was exactly what Arusha and Mrs Helen said. And that had happened in Singapore so how did Morgan know?
Could Morgan’s be speaking out of drunkenness?
Or is there more to her father’s death than they knew.

She dragged her suddenly heavy legs towards Morgan’s bed.
“What did you do to my father?” She asked again, calmly this time.
“Mr Fred is just one of the people i swindled! I asked him to make you chose me over Ethan, but he’s just this stubborn little guy… I ordered my spys to kill him by disconnecting his car brake” Morgan smiled…
His eyes were closing already and he didn’t even see the drops of tears that fell from Irish’s eyes.

She gripped the bed spread tightly and sobbed.
Morgan killed her father.
He made her mum almost lost her leg.
Morgan ruined her family.

She slowly sat on the floor,still sobbing.
She watched the sleeping Morgan with daggers in her eyes.
He was much more cruel than she had thought.
He isn’t human,he’s a monster. Someone who deprive pleasure in killing and hurting others is nothing but a mon$ter!
She’s going to see to it that he pay for all he has done.
She’s so glad he had made the confession in his room, Max had heard everything and would include it in the list of evidences.

Irish remained seated on the floor for minutes, grieving over her father’s death.
She wiped her tears and rose to her feet.
He’s dead already…he can’t possibly come back to life.
She wondered the amount of people Morgan would have caused so much pain.
She can’t be more glad to be brave enough to want to put an end to his bad deeds.
She hadn’t even known that her father was involved in his swindling list.

‘Well.. Morgan,your game is up’ She said inwardly and sighed.
Knowing her father hadn’t died from what they thought but from Morgan’s cruelness hurt her so much.
Tears slipped out of Irish’s eyes again,her heart was in so much pain. She had hated her father all this while…. Her father must have sent her away from home but he still love and fight for her.
She turned to Morgan and felt like hitting him without stopping.
Well.. she might get to do that tomorrow.
She can’t wait to see him led away by the cops,she just can’t wait…that was the only thing that consoled her at the moment.
Knowing he’ll pay for his deeds made her happy.!

She walked out of his room and quietly closed the door behind her.

“What’s wrong?” Maria asked her worriedly as they walked towards Irush door.
Irish’s eyes were red like she had cried and the expression on her face depicted sadness.
“I just want to be alone Maria” Irish said.
Maria nodded and stood by the door,she watched Irish walked into the room and gently closed the door behind her.
She hope she’ll be fine.



Irish stood in front of the oval mirror in her bathroom.
She just splashed water on her face and she watched the droplets trickle down her face to her neck.
She smiled.
She’s happy and sad at the same time.
She completed her mission here already,she got more information than she had even planned to, but she’s sad on the new discovery about the cause of her father’s death.

Morgan knew he killed her father’s death yet he acts all nice around her,claimed to love her and even had the guts to want to meet her family.
Arusha is gonna rip him off to pieces if he hears of this.
She’d better keep it to herself until Morgan is safely locked up.

But yes!
She’s super proud of herself,she’s happy but she’s yet to feel fulfilled until she sees Morgan to jail.
She stared at her belly, and feel so proud that she’s carrying Ethan’s baby.
Her bump was starting to show,her baby was growing.

She can’t wait to return into Ethan’s arms.
She miss him so much.
She walked back to her room, dabbing her wet face with a towel.
She sat on her bed with a sigh and then grabbed her phone.

“I’ll be home tomorrow” She texted Arusha.

“Really? We can’t wait to receive you!”Arusha reply came almost immediately and she smiled.
She had her plan already.. on how to lock Morgan up.

“Hey, Meet me at Pines Modern Steak tomorrow, by 3:35” Irish sent to Ethan.
She just hope her plan will work as she had planned.
She chooses Pines restaurant because she knows it’s the most popular restaurant in California and Morgan is definitely going to chose it. But if he didn’t, she’s going to force him to.

She should call Carl also.



Irish ordered the cooks to serve Morgan soup after he was awake,he looked tired and didn’t remember anything as usual.
He asked if he said something while he was drunk and she said no.
He only blabbed about finally winning the contract.
“Aren’t you hungover?” Irish asked,she was sitting on the couch in his room while he sat on his bed,shirtless.
She tried not to show her anger and anyone would have thought everything is normal by just looking at her face.
She looked completely normal that Morgan was convinced he hadn’t exposed anything to her.
Carl had told her not to be fully relaxed until they see Morgan and his accomplices to jail.
He said she should be careful cause anything can sprout up within the few hours left.
And then Ethan had replied her that he’d be there.
Irish knew she’snot safe until Morgan and his accomplices are locked up and she won’t deny that made her a bit scared.
The thought of Morgan finding out about why she’s really in his house terrified her.

Carl said he would be waiting in the restaurant tomorrow with Max and other cops.

The evidences are filed already and Max has been granted an arrest warrant.
Irish feels so happy all this is finally coming to an end.
But she can’t be so sure yet cause there are still hours to go and anything can happen within that time.

“Not really,just a bit tired” Morgan groaned.
“You’ll be fine once you take the soup” Irish assured and he nodded.
“And congratulations once again on the contract” She added with a smile.
“Thanks Irish,I’m so happy and we’ll be going to a restaurant to celebrate it” Morgan said.
“Which restaurant do you think is the best?” Morgan asked.
“Uhm… There’s this popular restaurant, Pines Modern Steak, I love it and which to go there, with you” Irish said and Morgan nodded
“Catherine will be returning tonight” he announced to her after checking his phone.
“She just messaged me now”
“Ohh..” Irish said..
“Don’t you think it’ll be better she comes with us to the restaurant tomorrow?” Irish suggested, knowing it’ll be easier for their arrest that way, Javad would also accompany Ethan to the restaurant.
And they’ll get to arrest Gladys later.
“You think so? Well..I’m going to tell her and if she feels up to it. Fine” Morgan said.

“By tomorrow night, Ethan would be poisoned” He said in a whisper before laughing wickedly.
“Yeah,i can’t wait” Irish joined in the laughter.

One of the cooks walked in and served him a bowl of hot soup.

Irish smiled as she watched him devour it, knowing that’ll be probably be one of the last good meal he’s gonna have.



Catherine returned late in the night after they were done with their dinner.
She looked pissed and hadn’t even responded to Irish’s greetings.
She hadn’t caught Irish by the camera doing anything suspicious and that made her mad.

She should have just installed a camera in Irish’s room like she wanted to.
Well… Irish would still remain in this house,there’s still more time to watch her.

And she’s more pissed the baby is yet to get lost. She can’t stand for a daughter’s nanny to also have a baby for her ex husband!

She was thrilled when Morgan informed her after she finished freshening up that she’ll be going with them to the hospital.
Watching the pain on Ethan’s faces when the doctor announce the baby in Irish dead would be a pleasure.
She had gotten the information that Irish once told Ethan she was going to abort the baby and that was why they had an issue.
Making her lose the baby will sure make Ethan to hate her!

Catherine ordered Aimee to get Maria after she was sure Irish has gone to bed.
Maria walked into her room with Aimee and Catherine sat up on her bed.
“You all should go to bed” She said to her personal maids who were looking tired and sleepy.
They bowed and hurried to their rooms.

“Hi Madam Catherine” Mariaa said.
“Hey, i want to ask you something now and i want nothing but the truth okay?” Catherine said and Maria nodded, she was in her pajamas,ready to go to bed when Aimee came to get her.
She knows what all this is about.. Catherine want to ask her about Irish.

“I know you’re now so close to that thing,i want you to tell me everything you know about her that we don’t. Everything” Catherine said.
“I..i don’t understand Madam Catherine”. Maria said, feigning ignorance.
“I mean,is there anything off you noticed about Irish, like is there something she’s trying to hide from us?” Catherine asked.

“No Madam Catherine,since i started working as her personal maid, I’ve not noticed any weird move from her, i don’t think there’s something she’s trying to hide, she’s always her normal self whenever we’re together” Maria said.


Catherine sighed “Are you sure?”
“Yes Madam Catherine”
“If i find out there’s something you aren’t telling me,I’m not going to spare you,trust me” Catherine threatened.

“I would never lie to you Madam Catherine, you’ll forever remain my boss and I’ll always be loyal to you. I can be watching her closely if you want” Maria suggested and Catherine’s eyes lit up.
“Exactly!” She smiled. “I like the fact that you’re so smart. I want you to watch her closely and give me a detailed report on whatever she does”
“Okay Madam Catherine” Maria bowed.

“You’re going to get a huge reward from me” Catherine said, impressed with Maria.
“I’ll try to do my best ma’am” Maria smiled.
“Alright,you can go to bed now” Catherine said.
“Goodnight Madam Catherine”
“Goodnight Maria” Catherine smiled.



Ethan walked into the kitchen in the dead of the night.
He couldn’t sleep,he kept tossing in bed.
He was so worried, scared and confused after receiving Irish’s text.

He’s going to see Irish again tomorrow..he’s glad but he’s so confused and doesn’t even know what to do.
Is she going to talk to him?
Will she finally leave Morgan and come to him? Or just to taunt him?
Will she come back to him?
Why the sudden meet up? He knew he should be happy he’ll be seeing her but….
Different thoughts ran through his mind at the same time that he felt exhausted.
His mind is unsettled.

He opened the fridge door and took out a carton of milk,he glanced round for a glass and concluded that was too much trouble,so instead he raised the carton to his lips.
The milk was so cold and refreshing.
He savoured the richness before wiping the smear from his upper lip with the back of his hand.
He sat on one of the chairs in the kitchen and gulped more of the milk.

Somehow, Irish’s words reassure him,she had told him to be patient but he didn’t know what to expect tomorrow, he assured himself that he should be able to handle anything that comes his way.
He’s ready for it.



“Everything will be fine” Mrs Harlow said to him the next evening he was ready to leave for the restaurant.
The appointment was scheduled for 3:35pm and it’s almost time,he had gotten up late and hurriedly took his bath and dress up.

Arin and Jessica were still taking their nap,they get to sleep more on weekends.
Mr Harlow patted his back affectionately.. “Anything that happens,just take it as part of life okay?”
Ethan nodded, he quickly gulped the coffee Mrs Gabrielle prepared for him.
“I just wonder why the sudden meet up” Mr Harlow said, sighing.
Ethan thanked them and then headed out.

He’s having a dinner things will turn out good but he can’t rely on that.
It’s just a hunch.
He somehow felt nervous to be seeing Irish again after a week and he’s somehow mad he’ll be seeing her with Morgan.



Irish walked into the restaurant with Catherine and Morgan accompanied by some bodyguards.
She darted her eyes everywhere for Carl as they moved to their reserved seats,she sighted him and Max and two other unknown men at the far edge of the restaurant reception.
Carl winked at her and she tried to hide her smile,she quickly removed her gaze not wanting Morgan to suspect anything.

Morgan seems to have booked the whole restaurant as there’s no single soul around. Catherine had refused to come with them, she said she’d feel embarrassed to be seen eating and dining with her daughter’s Nanny. Morgan had did a great job in convincing her with the promise that the restaurant will be private.

The thought of seeing Ethan again after a week made her a bit nervous and she couldn’t believe she had taken extra time in getting dressed up.
She’s putting on a short black leather skirt,a red sweater and thigh-high boots,her hair was styled in her favorite style but with extra effort this time and it looked more beautiful.
As usual,her beautiful face glowed with no make up and even Catherine had to admit to herself that Irish looked more beautiful today.

Catherine wore a black satin gown that showed off her figure with black high-heeled shoes and an alligator bag.
‘so bad she’ll be going to detention dressed so beautifully’ Irish thought inwardly.
Maria had told her about the meeting she had with Catherine yesternight.
She admire Catherine’s smartness,so bad.. it’s too late already.

Morgan rocked one of his expensive tuxedo with great black shoes,a killer sunglass and grey face cap, he was all smiles as they walked on.



Irish, Morgan and Catherine were sitted on the chair specially meant for them. Different type of food filled the table.
Ramen Burrito,
Ramen Burger,
Fish tacos,
Mac and cheese pizza
Carne asada fries,
Triple A. And many more that Irish wondered if they’re going to finish it.
Wine weren’t excluded too.

“I invited Ethan” Irish said interrupting the silent Atmosphere.
“What!?” Morgan and Catherine yelled!.
“I’m sorry…. I just wanted to let Catherine know I’m trustworthy and for real.. I’m going to embarrass Ethan, right in front of you both. Morgan, I want you to ask me one question in front of Ethan” Irish said.
“What?” Morgan smirked.

He was pissed the moment she said Ethan was going but is now relieved with what she said. Catherine still look piss too.
“Ask me to choose between you and him, who I love and who I want to be the father of my baby,” Irish said.
“Ofcourse! And I guess I’m the one right?”
“Yes” Irish said.
Catherine remained silent, if she knew Ethan will be coming she would have putting on something more hotter than this.



Ethan arrive at the restaurant and walked in, his legs almost got paralyzed when he saw Irish. Not only Irish, Morgan and Catherine too.
Is this some sort of joke?
He stared at Irish and almost cried, he had missed her so very much.
“Come on Brother… And join us” Morgan smirked and Catherine sniffed.

It’s a good plan though and she hope it favors her, when Irish chose Morgan , Ethan will be left with no option than to chose her.

“Irish…. If you really want us to talk, let’s go elsewhere , I can’t sit here” Ethan said when he find his voice.
He badly wished he could swing her into her arms.

“I invited you here Mr Ethan… I insist you join our table” Irish said trying hard not to stare at me.

He was looking very hot, hotter than the last time she saw him.
