Chapter 72

Irish gave a go ahead to Morgan, meaning he should do the talking.

“Well Ethan, not here to waste your time as you know you’re not welcomed here” Morgan said and Ethan scoffed.

His gaze was fixed on Irish who wasn’t ready to return his gaze.

“Ethan, Morgan. I just want to clear the confusion and stat it clear of who I love so the other can go away and get a life” Irish said.

Ethan’s heart skipped a beat, Is Irish going to chose him? What if she chooses Morgan? Again! He sure won’t survive it.
He stared at Morgan who was grinning so hard making Ethan almost believe Irish’s going to choose him.

But he doesn’t want to give up yet. Catherine was staring at him too. Argh! He hates the sight of them.

“So my dear Angel, Irish…. Can you tell us who you love and will like to stay forever with? And who you want your child to grow up knowing as father” Morgan grinned.

Silence followed but Morgan and Catherine doesn’t seem to care. Ethan was the only troubled one.

“Well…” Irish said.
“Ethan” Irish smiled and both Morgan and Catherine were shocked.



They had tears in Irish and Ethan’s eyes but Ethan stopped his from flowing.
Irish cried and he hugged her closely, wiping her tears.
“We’re going to have a baby Irish, together” He whispered to her and kssed her hair.
She bursted into a loud cry, she had longed to hear ‘we’re going to have a baby’ again from no one else but Ethan and it happened!
Ethan understood how emotional she was now, he held her without saying a word,he only carress her soft hair.

They both seems to be unaware of the people around them, Morgan recuperating from shock while Catherine didn’t care, thinking the baby is dead anyway.

“Crying crystal” He teased and she smiled up at him,eyes glistening with tears.
He wiped her tears again and kissed her forehead.
“I’m sorry..for causing you so much pain” She said in a voice barely more than a whisper.
“I..” She continued but Ethan stopped her.
“I deserve an explanation but not now okay?” He said and she nodded.
He smiled as she touched his face with longing in her eyes.
She missed him as much as he missed her.
She’s back,with his baby still intact. He can’t be more happy and grateful.
He had prayed and his prayers was answered.

“What the he.ll is going on here!” Morgan slammed the table, sending some fries flying in the air.
“You’re joking right?” He asked Irish breathing heavily.
“W.. what are you doing with him?” Morgan asked Irish,his whole body shaking in anger.
“What does it look like? He’s the one i love and i can never ditch him for anyone,not even the most handsome and wealthiest man on Earth,i was only in your house to get some things done and gladly it was accomplished, thanks for being a dunce all the while,you really made my investigation easier” Irish said.
Morgan felt like collapsing with shock,he stared at Irish in disbelief. His shock grew to rage and he made to hit her.
“Dmn it!” Ethan scowled, grabbing Morgan’s hand halfway and twisting it behind his back.
Morgan groaned in pain.
“How can you be so petty to want to hit a woman and not just any woman but my woman! While I’m here! You’re so funny” Ethan twisted Morgan’s hand tighter, making it more painful.
Morgan struggled to release himself from Ethan’s tight and painful grip but he wasn’t strong enough and when Ethan finally released him,he staggered back and forth groaning in pain.

“I told you she’s not to be trusted Morgan! She betrayed you” Catherine yelled and Morgan regretted not listening to her.
How can he be so blind to everything!
It was so obvious,so clear but he just doesn’t know what clouded his sense of reasoning.
He’ll make sure he doesn’t spare Ethan and Irish once he gets out of here.

“Betray?” Irish asked Catherine who glared at her menacingly.
“No,you can only use the word ‘betray’ for good people,just like you betrayed Ethan who was so good to you. I didn’t betray Morgan,I’m only fighting for the innocent souls he has killed and hurt”
“Whatever! won’t you performing the baby scan?” Catherine asked and Irish laughed.
“The baby scan we’ll be performing next is to know the sx of our baby” Irish said holding
Ethan’s hand to her baby bump.
“Joker” Catherine laughed hard.
“I’m not the joker here, you are. Don’t blame Morgan for been dumb, you’re equally dumb. Anyway,i didn’t take a sip out of the packs of juice you poisoned” Irish said, shocking Catherine to the bone.

“She tried to poison you?” Ethan asked in disbelief.
“Of course, Blaine one of the bodyguards came to my rescue and it was all thanks to you for telling him to protect me. Thank you so much Ethan for making a move to protect me even when i was in another man’s house” Irish stared lovingly at him.
“I knew you weren’t safe in their den. They are both terrible people” Ethan sighed,glad Irish is safe.

“Blaine!” Catherine screamed in anger.
“I’m so going to kill him and i won’t spare you also” Catherine said, making to barge out of the restaurant
Irish pushed her back and she landed on the chair with a thud.
“Fool. Are you about to walk out just now? You think you’re going to get spared after attempting to poison me. No silly, you’ll pay for it” Irish said.
“Where is your proof to get me arrested?! Morgan asked.
“I’m not dumb, I had a tape recorder installed in your room” Irish said and Morgan felt his head swim in another round of shock.
His palm went wet and he started sweating.

“You all are going to pay for this!” He yelled after stabilising himself.
“I’ll be out in no time,i know all of your bosses and I’ll make sure you both get fired” Morgan threatened the two cops.
“Well..that’s too late” The door opened to reveal Max, Carl and the two men Irish saw earlier.


“What are you doing here Carl?” Ethan asked.
“We’re in this together. Carl and i ” Irish smiled as she gave Carl a hug.
She hugged Max also and shook the two men’s hands saying thank you.
“We’re going to explain later Mr Ethan” Carl smiled, noticing Ethan’s confused look.

Max turned to Morgan and smiled.
“Hello, I’m Max. A CIA agent” he stretched out his hand for a handshake but Morgan just stared looking lost and angry.
“Well..I heard you earlier saying you know all of their bosses and you’ll be out in no time, you just made a grave mistake in adding to the list of your offense,those bosses of theirs who has been working with you for a long time will also be arrested. And don’t think you know my bosses,even if you do. They won’t be able to help you out this time, the evidences i have with me is enough to have you prosecuted in the court of law” Max said stretching his hand towards one of his colleagues who handed him two handcuffs.

Morgan shifted back, breathing heavily.
Catherine bursted into tears knowing there’s nothing that can be done again.
Their game is up.

“Mr Morgan Harlow, you’re hereby arrested for crime, corruption,theft,illegal deals,threatening and harming innocent people, planning the murder of Mr Ethan Harlow with your accomplices” Max said clamping the handcuff around Morgan’s wrist.
“My..m..y murder?” Ethan asked.
“Yeah, he’s planning to poison you with his accomplices” Irish said.
“What!” Ethan exclaimed.
“You shouldn’t be surprised yet, wait till you see his other two accomplices” Irish said.

“Mrs Catherine Lanyard” Max turned to Catherine who was hiding her hands behind her back.
“You’re hereby arrested for being Mr Morgan’s accomplice,for knowing about his dirty deals and refusing to report to the police,for the attempted murder of Irish Levine’s,for stealing Carrle’s necklace and lastly for the murder of Carrle, Ethan’s godmother” Max said and Ethan fell into a chair in shock.
Irish tended to him as Catherine was handcuffed .

“Com’on Ethan,you need to brace up. I was shocked also. We should be glad Carrle’s murderer is finally arrested, Carrle is finally going to rest in peace” Irish consoled Ethan.
He nodded. “I’m only shocked Catherine could do that to Carrle, I knew she and Carrle’s doesn’t get along but i never thought..” He sighed.
“She poisoned Carrle because Carrle wasn’t in support of your relationship with her, and because they believed she’s the reason you’re richer than Morgan” Irish said and Ethan braced in tears.
“It must be so hard to take in, i know you feel betrayed once again” Irish rubbed his hand gently.

He smiled sadly “Betrayed? No, I’m glad she had an affair with him or i wouldn’t have met you,I’m just so pained Carrle’s died because of that,her life was wasted just for nothing”
“And we’ll make sure they pay for it” Max assured.
“See what you caused!” Catherine screamed at Morgan in tears.

“I’m going to make you pay for this!” Morgan yelled at Ethan and Irish as he was about to be led away with Catherine.

“Wait” Irish said.
“You know i told you I’m going to give you a kss once the time is right and I’ve fallen in love with you”Irish said, standing in front of Morgan.
“’s so sad that I’d never love you, so how about this instead” She said, slapping his a$s.
It made a loud funny sound and everyone laughed except Morgan and Catherine who stared daggers at her.
They were finally led away.

Ethan smiled and got on his feet.
Carrle’s murderer finally apprehended,it made his heart free and made him relieved.
He felt happy.
He walked out of the restaurant,holding Irish.

“Why are they arresting Javad?”Ethan asked, seeing Max handcuff Javad before leading him away with Catherine and Morgan.
“What’s going on?! Javad didn’t do anything wrong,they must have mistaken him for one of Morgan’s bodyguards” Ethan said, making to stop Max but Irish pulled him back.
“Well..your ‘innocent’ Javad is one of Morgan’s accomplices who had joined Catherine in successfully poisoning Carrle to death,he has been a spy in your house for years and not only him but Gladys tol” Irish said.



Ethan walked into his living room and was a bit surprised to see everyone sitting and waiting for him.
His parents, Mrs Gabrielle, Jessica and Arin
They all stood up, looking expectant.
“How did it go?” They asked in unison and Ethan smiled.
“I don’t need to explain” He said and moved out of the way.

Irish stepped in and the scream of Jessica and Arin was deafening.
They plopped into her almost knocking her off her feet.
Mrs Gabrielle and Mr Harlow stared with smiles on their faces while Mrs Harlow struggled to hide her own smile also.

Two cops walked in and Ethan asked Mrs Gabrielle where Gladys was.
“She should be in her quarters” Mrs Gabrielle said, confused.
Ethan told Rob to take the cops there and few minutes later Gladys was led out with handcuff clamped around her wrists, she was staring at her feet dejectedly.

“What’s going on?” Mr Harlow finally asked.
“Well.. Gladys has been a spy in my house for years,she’s Morgan’s accomplice, together with Javad” Ethan said, shocking everyone.
“I knew there was something about her” Mrs Gabrielle lunged at Gladys, dragging her hair.
Gladys screamed painfully and the cops had to pull her from Mrs Gabrielle’s grip.
She was finally led away.

“I..still don’t understand a thing” Mrs Harlow said, looking confused and shocked at the same time.
“Irish is yet to fully explain to me also” Ethan said.
“Well..i suggest we should go to the dinning and eat while i explain. Little Arin is starving” Irish said and they all got the message immediately.
Irish’s still carrying Ethan’s baby!
And she’s back!

“Who would have thought Catherine would be that cruel” Mrs Harlow sighed after Irish finished narrating without leaving out any part.
Carl was eating with them also..
Ethan sighed..he couldn’t believe Irish did all that for him.
He was so touched that he was near tears.
If anything had happened to her, he wouldn’t have forgiven himself.
She went through a huge risk just to make him happy, she knew her life was on the line but still went ahead.

“Irish…thank you, thank you so much” Ethan held her hand tightly.
“I’m so touched you could do that for me” He added, looking so emotional.
“It’s fine, you worth what i did for you, Ethan.. you’re just the most kind hearted man I’ve ever seen” Irish said.
“Carl,i should thank you also. Thank you so much” Ethan said to Carl who nodded and smiled.
“Anything for you Mr Ethan, Morgan is a man that needed to be brought to book . I’m glad i took part in ensuring that”Carl said.

“Irish , you’re so brave” Mrs Harlow commended and she smiled.
“Thanks to both of you and everyone else that made Irish’s plan a success.” Mr Harlow said.
“I knew Irish would never leave Ethan for Morgan. Never” Mrs Gabrielle smiled.
“She acts so needed to see when she was telling me she’s going to make me pay for dropping her off in the rain. Gosh” Ethan said and everyone laughed.

“I thought you had left us and i was so angry but seeing what you were trying to do made me feel so ashamed of myself” Mrs Harlow sighed.
“It’s fine Mrs Harlow, no one wants to see their son looking sad, i would have been angry at me too if i were you” Irish said.
“Still..i should have trusted you like my husband and Mrs Gabrielle did. I’m sorry” Mrs Harlow said.
“I’m sure you wanted to trust me but everything seems so real, and the fact that I’m a good actor made it seems difficult” Irish said dramatically and they all laughed again.

“To think Javad could do such.. though I’ve always been suspicious of Gladys but not Javad” Mrs Gabrielle said.
“I should have listened to Irish when she told me about Javad but i trusted him so much” Ethan said.
“No one should be trusted,this world is full of deceit. One needs to be extra careful and observant ” Irish said.
“Indeed” Mrs Harlow nodded in agreement.
“Well..I’m glad everything is over now,I’m just so glad” Mr Harlow smiled.

“You don’t know how happy i am to have you back” Jessica grinned.
“Because of the dress i want to make for you?” Irish teased and they shared another round of laughter.
“I can’t wait for you to start reading me interesting bedtime stories again” Arin smiled,she was sitting close to Irish, they both are not willing to let go of each other anytime soon.
“So..the ones I’ve been reading to you are not interesting” Jessica rolled her eyes playfully.
“Gross. You even sleep off in the middle of reading me a bedtime story and i use to be the one reading it to you in the end” Arin said and everyone laughed again.

There was so much joy in everyone’s eyes,the atmosphere was serene.
They all felt fulfilled and happy.

“When is Maria and the bodyguard that protected you resuming work here?” Mr Harlow asked.
“Maria will be coming with me tomorrow but i don’t know Ethan’s plan for Blaine” Irish said.
“I’ll employ him as one of my bodyguards,he’s going to take javad place” Ethan said and Irish felt glad because Maria would be so happy to see Blaine everyday.

“Carl..come to me later,i have something for you” Ethan said to Carl.
“Okay Mr Ethan”Carl smiled.

“Irush,will you be sleeping here tonight?” Arin asked.
“No, i need to go home, to explain everything to my family,I’ll be resuming tomorrow” Irish said.

“How’s the baby?” Mrs Harlow grinned.
She’s so happy to be having a second grandchild.
“Baby?” Arin asked.
“Arin, Irish is carrying my baby” Ethan announced to her and she gasped.
She stared at Irish’s stomach.
“There’s a baby in there?” She asked in surprise “My sibling?”
Everyone nodded.
Arin stared at everyone and she knew they were serious,but why isn’t Irish’s stomach big..she wondered.
“Why isn’t her stomach big?” She voiced out her thoughts.
“The baby is still growing, it hasn’t grown fully yet” Jessica explained.

“Ohh” Arin blinked and everyone watched as she gave Irish an affectionate hug.
Irish hugged her back and rubbed her tiny back.
“I’ll be having a sibling, yaaaaay. My friends have siblings too, I’m going to tell my friends” Arin giggled happily and they smiled.

“And you know what?” Irish asked.
“What?” Arin asked.
“Your sibling loves strawberry flavor just like you do” Irish smiled.
“Oh my God! Strawberry is simply the best flavor, even the baby recognizes it” Arin said happily and everyone chuckled.
“Is that why you stole my strawberry muffins?”Arin asked and Irish nodded.
“You should have told me it’s for the baby!” Arin whined.
“I’m so sorry sibling,I’m so sorry for complaining that you ate my muffins,I’m so sorry for being mad at Mum for giving you my strawberry muffins. I promise to give you more when you come out” Arin said, rubbing her hands together in front of Irish’s stomach.
She was looking so serious about it that everyone laughed.

“Ethan” Irish said opening her purse.
She brought out Carrle’s necklace and saw his eyes glisten with tears as she wore it around his neck.
He felt the sense of relief he hasn’t felt in years.

“I love you so much Carrle. Rest in peace” He said, kissing the necklace.
There was silence,in respect to Carrle.

Ethan smiled and turned to everyone. “She’s resting in peace”

He pulled Irish with him as he stood up.
“I love you so much Irish,I’ve never loved a woman this way” He said as he kissed her fully on the lips.
Her heart reached out to him like it always does and she returned the kiss without hesitating.

Everyone felt the love in the air and they all smiled approvingly..

“Hey, you’re not supposed to be looking at that” Jessica whispered to Arin.
“Same goes to you” Arin whispered back with a roll of eyes and Jessica felt like giving her a painful knock.



“Thank you so much Irish,i can’t even imagine what would have happened to our only son if you had not made that plan” Mrs Harlow said as they walked Irish to the car.
She was about leaving,it’s late already and Arusha has been texting her.
“I don’t like the fact that everyone keep thanking me for that, Ethan has helped me too.” Irish said.
“You risked your life for him. I wouldn’t have asked for a better woman for my son” Mr Harlow gave Irish a side hug and she smiled.

Arin was holding her hand, swinging it happily as they finally got to the limo Ethan had told his driver to prepare.
“I believe we’re going to meet you here when we get back from school tomorrow” Jessica said.
“Of course” Irish nodded.
“Don’t worry,I’ll get your dress ready in two days” She added and Jessica giggled happily.
“Seems we have to store the refrigerator with strawberry and strawberry juice” Mrs Gabrielle said and they laughed.
“I’ll be ordering packs of them tomorrow” Ethan said, grinning happily.
The light glowing in his eyes could not be compared to anyone else.
“We know you’re going to take care of that Billionaire Ethan Harlow” his father saluted and everyone laughed again.

“Okay..we need to allow her go now, Arusha and Mrs Helen will be expecting her already” Ethan said, opening the car door for Irish.
Irish hugged everyone one after the other and she was surprised when Mrs Harlow gave her a kiss on the cheek and then whispered in her ear “you’re a rare gem and i hope you remain part of this family forever”
Irish was stunned,she felt honored hearing that from Mrs Harlow.

She waved them bye as she got into the limo with Ethan.
He’s going with her to ensure she gets home safe.
