Chapter 71

“I’m pregnant.” She said without blinking twice.

“What did you just say?”

“I’m pregnant and you’re responsible.” She rolled her eyes.

“How’s that possible?” Gray asked.

“It’s possible because I’m a woman. You don’t believe me? Here!” She threw the pregnancy tests results at him.

Gray took it with trembling hands and read the contents. His eyes widened and he still couldn’t believe it.

“Are you sure the test was carried out well? Are you sure the doctor didn’t make a mistake?” Gray asked.

MENDING HIS BROKEN HEART : CHAPTER 71 - 90. Thingscouplesdo

“What mistake are you blabbing about? You got me pregnant and this is all you can say? You were the one who asked me to keep this a secret, now it has developed to Pregnancy.” She started crying.

Gray couldn’t even tell her to stop. It felt like a sharp knlfe has pierced through his heart.

“This isn’t right? How did all these happen? How did my life become like this?” He asks himself.

“Stop soliloquizing and let’s think of a way out. I’m ab©rting this child.” She said.

“No! Don’t you dare do that. Do you want to ruin my life? Don’t you know how dangerous an ab©rtion is?” Gray yelled at her.

“Then, what do you suggest I do? I can’t keep a child that is a product of rappe. It reminds me of the pains I went through.” She started crying again.

“Stop crying already. You can’t kll that baby in your womb.”

“Then, you’ll have to take responsibility for it and take care of us.” She said.

Gray sighed. If he refuses, she would go and do an ab©rtion which will kll the baby. He can’t let that happen else he would feel guilty for the rest of his life. He won’t be able to forgive himself.

He wished he had never known Camille, he wished he had met Noel earlier in his life then things wouldn’t have been this way.

“Won’t you talk?” She snapped him out of his reverie.

“I’ll take responsibility and card for you and the baby. Just don’t abort the child please.” He pleaded.

“Okay, take me to a restaurant. I’m craving meat.” She said.

“But, I have loads of work on my table.” Gray said.

She burst into tears.

“Is it wrong for me to ask for meat? Why are you testing me like this? Besides, you are the one who got me pregnant.” She cried again.

“It’s okay, I’ll take you to any restaurant ofvyiur choice.” Gray stood up and was about stepping out with her when Austin entered.

“Gray, where are you going to?” Austin asked, looking at Camille but the question was directed to Gray.

“I want to take her somewhere, I’ll be right back.” Gray said and was about rushing out but Austin stopped him.

“Dude, are you okay? For the past three months, you haven’t been yourself. You get easily lost in a trance and you’re losing weight terribly. I’m your friend, whatever the problem is, you can tell me.” Austin said.

“I’m perfectly fine.” Gray answered.

Austin sighed and looked at Camille one more time before leaving.




Gray brought her into the restaurant and made her sit. Maureen came to meet them and was surprised to see Camille and Gray together. What was happening? Is he going for Camille now? She looked at his face and saw that he wasn’t happy while Camille kept holding him. She hasn’t gotten over the shock of Noel’s de..ath and here is another shocker for her.

“What can I offer you?” She asked them politely.

“Nothing for me, just give her anything she wants.” Gray said carelessly and looked away. He already knew what Maureen was thinking right now but fact is that no one can replace Noel in his heart not even Camille. He will wait till she gives birth then take his child and forget all about this.

Maureen sighed but nodded. If he isn’t happy with her then why did he bring her to eat? Something is definitely fishy. Camille must have done something to him because she knew how much Gray loved Noel. He was even ready to marry her before all these came up.

“May I take your order ma.” Maureen said.

“I need rice and chicken soup, spice it up.” Camille ordered.

“Okay ma, what would you like to drink?” Maureen asked.

“If I wanted a drink, I would have added that. Stop acting dumb!” Camille snapped.

“The lady only asked a simple question, Camille. If you didn’t want a drink, a simple No would have been fine. Your impudence towards her was uncalled for.” Gray scolded her.

“Stay out of this, it’s none of your business.” Camille said, glaring at him.

“I’m sorry about her outburst, Maureen. Just go bring her order.” Gray said with a pleading face.

Maureen smiled and was about leaving.

“You know what? I’m no longer eating.” Camille stood up.

“Why?” Gray asked.

“Because, your disgusting face made me lose my appetite.” She stood up and stormed out.

Gray sighed and faced Maureen.

“I’m very sorry about that, please don’t be angry.” Gray said.

“No problem but how come you two are together?” Maureen asked.

“It’s a very long story that even I don’t know how to start explaining it. Everything is complicated.” He sighed sadly.

Maureen felt for him.

“Don’t worry, you’re going to be fine. Whatever happens, just remember that as far as there’s life, there is hope.” She said.

“Thanks, that was soothing.” He smiled for the first time since forever.

“You’re welcome, I’m glad I could help.” She said.

“Gray! This car isn’t gonna drive itself!” Camille yelled from outside.

“You might wanna go before she brings down the restaurant.” Maureen said.

“Yeah, goodbye and see you soon.” He said and left.

Maureen took her apron and returned to the kitchen. She hoped Gray would be able to survive in that d’vil’s claws.

Gray guy outside and entered the driver’s seat if the car.

“What took you so long huh? Do you know how long I waited? What were you doing there?” She asked.

“That’s none of your business, you’re not my wife or my girlfriend neither are you my fiancee or mother to ask me that question. It’s my life and I chose how to live it, you must’nt meddle into my affairs because of one silly mistake.” He said.

“What? Getting me Pregnant was a silly mistake?” She yelled.

“Stop okay? I don’t wanna hear it. You claim that you hate me for rapping you but you’re always all over me, you won’t even give me a breathing face for once. Don’t make me start doubting this pregnancy or even the rape because you’re acting like a cheap sIut.” He snapped and she gasped.

“Gray!” She called but he got down from the car.

“Go ahead and drive yourself, I’m sure your pregnancy isn’t that heavy yet.” He said and started leaving.

“Gray! Gray!” She called but he didn’t answer.

She was shocked, what did Maureen tell him to make him talk to her in such manner? She hit the car seat she was on angrily and went to the driver’s seat.

“At least, I now have a car from him.” She chuckled.

Gray walked to the side of the road and hailed down a cab. He called his parents home address and entered before the cab driver took off. He brought out his phone and called Austin.

“Meet me at my parents penthouse, there is something I need to tell all of you.” He said and put the phone back.

He closed his eyes and rested his head on the car seat. He was tired of all these blackmail, she keeps acting like she owns his life. He would tell his parents and Gray what has happened else he might run mad very soon.




The can dropped him off and he paid before entering. He saw Austin coming out of his own car and went to meet him.

“What happened Gray?” Austin asked.

“Let’s go inside first, I’ll explain.” He said.

Austin nodded and they went in.

His mum and dad were seated on the sofa there with little Summer. When Summer came, she had been crying to see the angel she saw last time and Everytime her demands aren’t met, she would cry and cry till she falls asleep.

Immediately Summer saw Gray, she ran to meet him.

“Bro Gray, uncle and aunt are refusing to show me the angel I saw with you last time. Her name is Noel, you know her right?” She asked with tears in her eyes.

“Yes, I know her.” Gray answered.

“Where is she?” Summer asked, happy that she finally found hope.

“She traveled to the states and will be back very soon. She said that she would bring a lot of candies and sweets for you on her way back. She said she won’t come back if you cry.” Gray said and carried her up.

“Really?” She asked, her big eyes bulging into his.


“When is she going to be back? I miss her so much.” Summer pouted.

“She’ll be back very soon okay?” Gray said.

“Okay.” She nodded.

“Go to your room now, brother wants to talk with Aunt and uncle okay?” He said and she nodded.

She pecked his cheeks and ran upstairs.

Gray went to sit with Austin, facing his parents.

“My son, you don’t look good at all. Why are you t©rturing yourself like this?” Jasmine asked.

“Mum, dad, Austin.” He called and they faced him.

“What is it?” Mr Gerald asked.

“I did something bad and I don’t know if you’re going to forgive me.” He said.

“What did you do? You’re our son. Tell us, we can’t be mad at you but can only correct and scold you.” Mrs Jasmine said.

“Trust us bro, whatever it is, we’ll find a way out.” Austin said.

Gray sighed and narrated everything to them. Starting from how he got drunk and everything that followed after that.

“This is serious, why didn’t you tell us from the beginning of all these?” Mr Gerald asked.

“I didn’t know how to tell you. I was so ashamed of myself.” Gray said.

“It’s okay but are you sure you’re really responsible for that pregnancy? That girl is a tortoise.” Mrs Jasmine said.

“I agree with you, Mrs Jasmine. Let’s wait till she gives birth then run a DNA test on the baby. We’ll get the truth from there.” Austin said.

“That’s a good idea. Gray, don’t worry, we know the kind of son we have. You made a mistake, we agree but don’t let it weigh you down. We’re here to help you.” Mr Gerald said.

“Thank you so much, I feel much better.” Gray sighed, it was like a heavy load has been lifted off his shoulders.

“That’s why are here. Now, go freshen up, I’ll ask Emma to get you something to eat.” Mrs Jasmine said.





Camille entered as usual and sat down but Gray didn’t pay her any attention.

“What’s with that attitude?” She asked.

“What?” He asked without looking up.

“Why are you giving me attitude huh? You’re the guilty one and I’m the victim. Instead of you to take care of me, you’re here acting like a tsundere.” She said.

“Are you done?” He asked.

“What?” She asked.

“When you’re done, you can go out of my office the same way you came.” He said and she gasped

“After getting me Pregnant?” She asked.

“You said I got you Pregnant right? Fine! I agree. I’m responsible for the pregnancy and the baby but I’m not responsible for you so don’t come close to me, don’t even talk to me until that baby I’m responsible for is born.” Gray said and faced his work.

“Are you for real?” She gasped.

“The door is open, please close it on your way out.” He said.
