Chapter 67

“Please wait…” Maria who has been standing behind the door walked into the living room.
“I did it..” She said.

Everyone turned to her and Irish’s mouth fell open.
Her eyes glistened with tears, knowing Maria hadn’t done anything,she was trying to save her.

“Mrs Irish told me how much she loved my voice whenever i sing to her,i was about to record myself singing so she’ll listen to it anytime I’m not around to sing to her because she told me how much she missed my songs while i was off for a day.

We were about doing that before you came in to get her Mr Morgan, and i guess she was so excited to meet the guests that she forgot to exit the app” Maria said, sounding so convincing that Irish almost believed her herself.

“Yes..yes,that’s it” Irish quickly said, wiping her tears.
Morgan looked remorseful as he dropped to his knees before her.

Maria picked Irish’s phone.
“Irish….I’m sorry” Morgan said, touching her arm but she jerked his hand away.
“I can’t believe you still do not trust me” She said, looking angry as she got to her feet.
“Irish, please I’m so sorry. I thought Javad was right when you didn’t say anything to defend yourself . I thought you wanted to betray me” Morgan said, looking at her pleadingly.
Javad was shocked to see Morgan act like a dummy before Irish.
This lady is a wtch! She has enchanted Morgan the way she did to Ethan.
This is just unbelievable.

“I couldn’t defend myself because i was still so shocked that our accomplices turned out to be Javad and Gladys but you didn’t even give me time to recover from the shock before ordering them to throw me in the back of your limo. What were you going to do to me?” Irish asked.
Her body still reeling from the shock that the accomplices turned out to be Javad and Gladys.

Although she has always being suspicious of Javad from day one but she was still so shocked to find out he was the spy and not only him but Gladys also.
Gladys whom Mrs Gabrielle detested.
They’ve both been working for Ethan for long have they been working for Morgan?

~There are hundreds of Javad in the world~ Carl’s words rang in her ears.
Of course there are hundreds and even thousands of Javad in the world, why did it turn out to be the one they knew,the one Ethan trusted so much.

And Catherine had tried to hide his identity,that simply means she knows about it all.
She’s aware of everything.
How could Catherine also do this to Ethan.
Breaking his heart wasn’t enough,they ended up planting spies in his house!
And now,they are planning to kill him when he didn’t even wrong them in any way.
Why are people so cruel.

Morgan dismissed the bodyguards around them so they could have some privacy while they talk.
“If Maria hadn’t spoken up,what would you have done to me? Would you have killed me?” Irish asked.
“I thought you were going to betray me, I’m so sorry Irish. Please” Morgan pleaded.
“You should know i will never betray you, i told you how much i hate Ethan now”
“I know that also but who wouldn’t have thought you were trying to record our conversation after seeing your phone screen, you would have thought the same if you were in my shoes. Just forgive me Irish, please” Morgan said.

“It’s fine Morgan,i know you trusted me,your anger got the better part of you” Irish said.
“Exactly!” Morgan said.
He knew she would never betray him,he was only clouded with anger then.
“But if i had really done that, would you have killed me?” Irish asked and she almost shook in fear when Morgan nodded.
“I don’t spare betrayals,i make them die a slow and painful death” He said.
“Of course” Irish hid her fears behind her smile.

Morgan would have killed her if Maria hadn’t lied!
She would have been tortured to death.
The thought alone made her shiver.

“Are you cold?” Morgan asked.
“A bit” She lied.
“Should i order them to turn on the heater” Morgan asked.
“No, it’s fine. I’m fine” Irish said.

She glanced at Javad and Gladys who were standing before her.
They both looked like they didn’t care what she thought about them.
One should really be careful, these two people could have easily poisoned Ethan and no one would ever suspect them.

“Looks like, you’re still shocked to find out Javad and Gladys are involved” Morgan said.
“Not anymore,i don’t care the people involved,all i wanted was to meet them and I’m glad i have. Nice to meet you Javad, Gladys” Irish said and they shook hands.
Irish’s trying hard to look like she was fine with them but she’s deeply bothered.

“There’s no need for introduction,we know ourselves already” Gladys said.
“Of course” Irish feigned a smile.

They all sat down and Ethan ordered the cooks to serve them drinks.
Irish didn’t take a sip out of the drink she was served, she only looked at Javad and Gladys keenly.

“So,you wanted to discuss the plan with them right?” Morgan asked Irish.
“Uh.. yeah. So how are you both gonna go about the poisoning,are you going to add it in his meal?” Irish asked.
“You don’t have to know that, we’ve planned everything out with Mr Morgan” Javad said,not trusting Irish a bit.
“C’mon, we’re colleagues now and Morgan introduced you guys to me so we could iron everything out smoothly” Irish said.
“I think it’s unnecessary for you to know about how we’re gonna go about the plan, yeah,we are now colleagues but you shouldn’t press us for details,you know we’re going to be poisoning that weak a$s,you don’t have to know how we’ll go about it” Gladys said and Irish felt like dragging her hair for calling Ethan a weak a$s.

“And why are you finding it hard to discuss the details with me! Didn’t you discussed it with Morgan and Catherine? What problem do you have with discussing it with me also” Irish half yelled.
“We do not trust you!” Javad retorted.
“Who cares if you trust me or not. Morgan trusts me and that’s all that matters” Irish said.
“Will you both start giving her the details of the plan now! I told you she’s trustworthy! Don’t get on my nerves” Morgan warned.
“We’re sorry boss” Gladys and Javad said in unison.
“Will you do the talking?” Gladys asked Javad.
“You should” Javad said, lifting his drink to his lips.

He watched Irish closely.

“Whenever Mr Morgan gives us the go ahead to take down Ethan, I’ll poison his dinner and he’s going to die in his sleep” Gladys said and Irish hands shook around the glass cup.
She tried not to show her agitation as she stared at Gladys.

“Why does it have to be dinner and not lunch or breakfast?” Irish asked.
“So no one would come to his rescue, everyone would be asleep by the time he starts writhing in pain and he wouldn’t even be able to call for help because of the effect the poison would have had on him” Gladys said and Irish remembered what Ethan told her about Carrle’s death.
Carrle was poisoned overnight and no one had heard her call for help till the next morning when they decided to check on her and it was too late,she had given up by the time they got to the hospital.

Till now,they were yet to apprehend Carrle’s murderer, could that be the reason they want to use that method on Ethan also so it’ll be difficult for the cops to apprehend them.
The way they are planning to kill Ethan sounds so similar to Carrle.
Could it be that they…
Could they have a hand in Carrle’s death?
No, Catherine had given birth to Arin,the day Carrle died,she probably have not met Morgan by then and they probably have not planted spies in Ethan’s house then.

“, you’re just going to poison his dinner once Morgan gives you the go ahead but how are you going to do that? Mrs Gabrielle doesn’t allow any of you into the kitchen not to talk of allowing you dish Ethan”s meal” Irish said.
“That foolish woman who always thought she’s smart” Gladys laughed.

“Im going to add the poison when no one has arrived the dining room , certainly Mrs Gabrielle would go into the kitchen to bring more meals.. I’ll quickly do it before she gets back in the dining room” Gladys said.

“What if he does not end up eating the meal you poisoned and changes his mind to eat another?” Irish asked, wishing her phone was actually recording all this.
“Who said I’m going to poison his meal… no, I’m going for his favorite wine, it’s always uncorked and he can’t do without taking it” Gladys said, sounding so confident that her plan is going to work out.
Looks like she really has everything planned out.

“Great, you really have everything planned out. I hope it works out” Irish said.
“It will” Gladys said.
Irish noticed how keenly Javad was observing her.
“But why don’t we use pistol..that’ll be faster than poison” Irish quickly suggested. She needed them to feel she was really in.
“It’s going to raise suspicion and the cops would investigate it thoroughly,the bullet might turn out to be our Achilles heel” Gladys said.
“Ohh…that’s right. So let’s stick to the poison then” Irish smiled.
“Let’s toast to our plan” Morgan said and they all lifted their glass cups.



“We should leave now,i won’t want Mr Ethan to notice our absence in the house” Javad said.
“ should leave then” Morgan said and Javad and Gladys rose to their feet.
They bowed to Morgan.

“It was nice meeting you, Bye” Irish waved at them as they turned to leave.
“Woah,that was great. Great plan,great details” Irish smiled,turning to Morgan after they left.
“Yeah,i work with smart people” Morgan smiled.
“I can’t just wait for the plan to be carried out” Irish said.
“Is there a camera in the living room? Catherine is going to see everything” Irish panicked.
“Just chill..i ordered Ben to disconnect the camera in the living room before Javad and Gladys arrived.” Morgan said and Irish sighed in relief.
“I should go tell him to reconnect it and not say anything to Catherine.” Morgan said.
“You should do that, i’ll be in my room,i need to take a rest” Irish said and Morgan nodded.
She kissed him on his cheeks and he was all smiles when he left the living room.

Maria jumped into the living room and pointed out Irish’s phone to her.
She had dropped it behind a throw pillow on the couch Irish was sitting before leaving the sitting room.
She knew Irish needed to record whatever conversation they want to have and had stylishly dropped the phone there before Morgan dismissed them.

Irish picked her phone and almost screamed in excitement after she discovered the whole conversation was recorded,she stopped the recording and threw her arms in the air happily.
She jumped into Maria’s arms happily, almost knocking her over.

“Be careful,your baby” Maria laughed.
“Let’s go to my room” Irish grabbed her hand and pulled her towards her room.

They walked in and she closed the door behind them.

“Maria how else can i thank you?” Irish asked, deeply touched.
Maria had saved her today! and not only that,she had made the recording a success!
That recording is a very concrete evidence.


“You can thank me by taking a lotttt of rest” Maria said and Irish pulled her into a tight hug. “Thank you”.
“It’s fine ma’am” Maria said.
“How did you quickly made that up? I almost believed it myself” Irish said and Maria laughed.
“I also did not know how it came rushing into my mouth..all i thought of at that moment was to save you because i definitely know what Mr Morgan is going to do to you” Maria said.

“Thank you so much” Irish said and Maria nodded.
“I know you have a reason for doing that,i know you have a reason for being in this house,i know of the calls you do make in the bathroom” Maria said.
“You know of the calls i make in the bathroom” Irish asked

“Of course,I’m mostly in your room. I know you have a reason for doing all that but whatever the reason is, I’ll always have your back, you’ve been very kind to me and this is the least i can do for you” Maria said.

“Mar,thank you” Irish hugged her again.
“Is there anything you’ll like me to do for you?” Maria asked.
“Nothing..for now” Irish said.
“I should excuse you now,I’ll be by the door. You should call me when you need me” Maria said and Irish nodded.

Maria is just like an angel sent to her from above.
She didn’t regret making her her personal maid.

Irish picked her phone and played the recording.
She laughed, Javad was foolish enough not to stop the recording when he discovered it, he had only shouted like a buffalo.
Irish smiled as she forwarded the recording to Carl after she finished listening to it.

Another evidence to the list.

Okay, everything is really going as planned and after today,she has just two days left.
She can’t wait.



“Who asked Ben to disconnect the CCTV from 10:28am to 12:31pm?” She asked through clenched teeth and even the blind could tell she was furious.

“Did Ben told you that?” Morgan asked,prepared to fire Ben immediately.
“He didn’t,i saw it all from my laptop. The footage suddenly went blank from 10:28am to 12:31pm”

“And you concluded I’m behind it?” Morgan contradicted..
“I knew you were. Ben can never disconnect the CCTV without your consent” Catherine stated.
“Have you asked Ben what went wrong?” Morgan asked.
“I do not need to!” Catherine dropped her bag.
“That’s dumb! Why did you come straight to me? Am i in charge of the security footage?!” Morgan half yelled and even Irish almost believed he knew nothing about it.


“You do not have the right to come to me without confirming if I’m truly behind it and were you checking the house activities on your laptop? You asked Ben to connect the footage to your laptop? Why would you do that?” Morgan asked.
“I needed to know what the hell is going on!”
“And what the hell is going on!” Morgan shouted.
“I can’t believe you were spying on me” Morgan said, looking disappointed.

“I wasn’t spying on you Morgan, i was spying on Irish cause i do not trust her! Something seems off about you Irish;” Catherine said to Irish’s face,who swallowed hard.

“I needed evidence so you could truly see she’s not to be trusted..” Catherine was saying.
“I told you she’s trustworthy!” Morgan slammed.
“My intuition is never wrong Morgan, there’s something about her. You need to believe me, let’s get her out of this house” Catherine said desperately and Irish tried her best to look normal.
“Why?” Morgan asked. “And did you find anything suspicious about her when you turned ‘Ben’ overnight?”
“I didn’t but if the damn footage hadn’t gone blank, I’m so sure i would have ”
“And aren’t you supposed to be in Mexico?” Morgan asked.
“I cancelled my flight”
“Because the footage went blank?”

“Catherine,you cancelled your flight because you wanted to confront me about a blank footage? Unbelievable.” Morgan furrowed his brow.
“Morgan,why do i feel you know about this” Catherine said.
“Then go confirm from Ben… you’re seriously pissing me off right now Catherine” Morgan said.
“I..i should…excuse you” Irish said, slowly getting to her feet.
“No, wait” Morgan said.

“I should go confirm from Ben? Like you wouldn’t have made up something for him to tell me” Catherine said.
“Whatever” Morgan scoffed. “And you know i can have you arrested for intruding in my home’s privacy by connecting the CCTV to your laptop”
“Ohh..really” Catherine laughed. “Go ahead, i can see you’re going out of your senses”
“Why are you so insecure about her ?”
“I’m only trying to watch out for you Morgan, she’s going to ruin you, i can feel it! You need to stop this fucking love and look into her, she also knows what I’m talking about” Catherine said, watching Irish closely for any slightest change in her expression but Irish’s face remained the same even though she was panicking inwardly.

She had followed Carl’s advise on maintaining a normal expression.

“I do not know what you’re talking about” Irish said.
“You do!” Catherine yelled.
“I don’t!” Irish yelled back.
“You do!”
“You’ve been monitoring my movement in this house like your life depends on it! And yet you haven’t found anything suspicious about me, you’re not trying to watch out for Morgan! You just hate me, that’s it!” Irish said pointedly and Catherine was surprised at her outburst.

She turned to Morgan..”it’s so clear you gave her the audacity to stand up to me. Wow”
“She’s not a kid..she needs no permission to stand up to you. You both should probably be the same age” Morgan cleared.
“, if love makes one this dumb then i don’t ever want to fall in love. Cause you’ve obviously turned dumb Morgan,so dumb that it’s starting to irritate me” Catherine sighed angrily.
“Whatever” Morgan said looking unconcerned.
“Morgan! Whatever you did during that period the footage went blank,i promise you I’m gonna dig it out. Motherfker!” Catherine picked her bag and angrily left the room.

“Good thing you stood up to her!” Morgan said to Irish.
“Really?” Irish smiled.
“Yeah, she’s always telling me not to trust you when she didn’t even find anything suspicious about you,that simply means she hates you” Morgan said.
“Of course…she’s still mad over Ethan’s rejection,i guess that’s the reason she’s being this way” Irish said.
“Exactly! Ethan had told her he still loves you” Morgan said.

“What! He should better stop whatever love he has for me, I’m with you now” Irish smiled, holding his hand.

“Oh my, you’re such a sweet lady Irish, i wonder why Catherine can’t see that” Morgan said, drowning in Irish’s love.
“Her hatred for me won’t let her see it” Irish rolled her eyes.

“Who cares if she hates you, once you give birth to his baby, you’ll become the lady of this house and you can do to her whatever pleases you” Morgan said.
“Really?” Irish feigned amazement.
“Of course, said we are going to kss soon”Morgan said,not able to take his eyes off her lips.

“C’mon, not yet,I’m starting to love you more and more cause you trust me even when Catherine is tryna make you not to. Keep trusting me okay? and you’ll earn all of my ‘loveeee’ ” Irish said.
“Okay,my first lady. I’ll trust you till eternity” Morgan said.

‘No, you’ll trust me till you get locked up’

“Thank you for trusting me” Irish said.
“My utmost pleasure,dearest” Morgan said, gripping her hand tightly and Irishthought he had gone crazy.
He stared into her eyes affectionately and Irish sighed, wondering why he looked nothing romantic but scary!!!.



Catherine walked into the bathroom,peeled off her clothing and got into the bath tub that was bubbling with warm soapy water.
She was so pissed that her body shook.
She tapped her finger on the bath panel thoughtfully.

She had thought Irish was the only one hiding something,looks like Morgan is involved also.
She really needs to stop him before he spills their secrets to Irish cause he’s helplessly in love now.
But it’s just so annoying to know there’s no way to stop him from trusting Irish without providing evidence or Morgan won’t listen to her.

She had suspected Irish wasn’t really here because she now hated Ethan.
She has her own apartment..why coming here just because she now hate Ethan.
How could she even have believed that from the start,she was so occupied with $educing Ethan that she hadn’t thought straight!

She hated Irish for so many reasons.
First,she still has Ethan’s heart! And even Morgan’s heart also! leaving her with nobody, And she was carrying Ethan’s baby!
The only men in her life loves her!
Well.. she’ll be dieing soon with the damned baby of hers.
The dmned baby that caused all these!
And then she’ll have Ethan and Morgan fighting for her love… that’ll be so interesting.. Catherine smiled at the thought.

She had made a great decision poisoning the packs of juice, now she’ll have Ethan and Morgan to herself alone.
Irish would leave and they’ll all forget about her after some months.

But she really needs to find a suspicious evidence about Irish real quick, so Morgan can would make her leave before she dies in this house.
