A NIGHT WITH HIM Episode 36 by Azeemah Salami
“Good morning Mr Harold” The door opened.
Alex, Tom and Eric stepped in and with one glance at Irene…Alex knew what was going on.
“Ohh…i guess we just interrupted something. We’re sorry Mr Harold” Alex said.
“Nothing… nothing at all” Harold smiled.
“How’s your mum’s health?” Tom and Eric asked Irene.
“Ohh…” She said getting herself out of the shock she was thrown into.
“She’s getting better…i mean her surgeries will be performed today. Thanks guys” Irene said.
“surgeries?” Alex asked.
“Yeah” Irene answered reluctantly.
“The specialists are flying in soon” Harold said.
“Ohh” Alex said.
“Let’s get moving” Harold said,he felt a bit bad he must have made Irene uncomfortable with his confession.
But he’s glad he finally made his feelings known to her, he can’t keep it any longer.
He’s madly in love with her and he didn’t even knew how it happened.
He didn’t even regret the fact that he developed feelings for Irene, she’s worth it.
After all these years, he’s glad his heart’s finally working perfectly.
Not just on anyone but Irene, he has never felt that way around any lady.
Not even Carrle.
He had had something for Irene since he saw her but he didn’t just admitted it until recently.
They got outside the hospital and Harold adjusted his face cap.
They all sat in the car waiting for Alex who told them he wanted to pee..
“Why is he taking so long?” Harold asked.
Irene had noticed too but she didn’t want to speak up, she suddenly feels so shy around Harold.
” I need to get to work. Tom, go check him” Harold ordered.
“Okay Mr Harold” Tom alighted from the car and walked back into the hospital.
He headed to the restroom area and saw Alex approaching, tucking his phone in his pocket.
“What?” He queried Tom with a stern look.
“Don’t ever think I’ll be looking out for you, Mr Harold asked me to when you’re taking forever like the restroom is your new home” Tom said.
“Just shush or another round of fight will burst now” Alex gritted his teeth.
“I’m always ready to burst your face with punches, thank your stars Mr Harold is outside waiting for us” Tom grinned before walking away.
Alex cursed him under his breath before walking after him .
had actually called Mr Ethan to inform him about the recent happenings .
“I’m sorry Mr Harold for delaying you,i ne..” Alex was saying.
“It’s okay” Harold cut him short. “Move Eric” He added and Eric turned on the ignition and started driving.
news” Ethan said to Carrle as he walked into the swimming area.
Carrle was by the edge of the pool,clad in a pink bikini and sipping wine which she handed to one of the maids standing at her beck and call when she heard Ethan’s words.
“Really?” She asked,her eyes litting up .
She knew the news would center around Harold, she really want him back. Although Ethan is not in any way depriving her of anything but she just wanted Harold again, she missed how he makes her feel, he was so gentle and romantic to the core,a perfect definition of an humble man,one wouldn’t know he’s wealthy if one hasn’t seen him in the news.
People obviously loved him more than Ethan because of his humble way of life.
“You both should excuse us” Ethan said to the maids as he sat beside Carrle.
They left immediately after bowing.
“So what’s up?” Carrle asked, ignoring Ethan’s lustful gaze on her body.
Harold doesn’t look at her with lust but with love that always make her give herself to him all the time.
His eyes are loving, you get stuck when staring at Harold,he doesn’t even know what he does to lots of women with those eyes.
smiling? Do you know what I’m about to say already?” Ethan asked.
“Huh? No, but it’s good news right?”
“Yeah, it’s about your daughter…”
“What did you do to my daughter!?” Carrle sparked up.
“Chill Carrle, i was about to say your daughter’s nanny” Ethan said.
“Ohh” She said more calmly.
“You just keep surprising me with your behavior whenever i mention your daughter” Ethan stated.
“Cause i know what you can do Ethan,you would do anything to hurt Harold and my daughter is his weakness here” Carrle said.
“I won’t hurt your daughter cause i know how much you love her too” Ethan said, wishing Ivory was dead already..
“Less i forget,I’ll be going to check on her soon” Carrle said.
“Ohh…your visitation. You wouldn’t even let me meet her”
“Harold is gonna chop off my head” Carrle laughed.
“Okay, the good news is about Irene. Her mother is hospitalized and her health has deteriorated to the extent that she needs some specialists to fly over”
“Wow…” Carrle raised her brow.
“So where do we come in?” She asked.
“We stop the specialists from getting to the hospital, according to the nurse Alex made enquiry from,the woman would die if she’s not attended to as fast as possible and you know if she dies,Irene would be so sad and that’s what you’ve always wanted…to make her sad” .
That girl is just so annoying,she pisses me off and do you know she’s starting to rob Tanya of her customers?” Carrle asked.
“Yeah… Tanya is so pissed at her too,when i tell her of this plan, she’ll be so happy ” Carrle smiled.
She hates the fact that Irene got more attention at the party,the ladies focused on her alone and kept ranting on how beautiful she looked.
Some even said she and Harold looked perfect together.
Like what the hell!
“That’s cool,we aren’t alone in this” Ethan laughed.
“Yeah so when does the plan start?”
“It started already, we found their location and i sent out my boys”
“Wow! You’re so keen on this” Carrle laughed.
“Anything to make you happy” Ethan said.
“Thanks” Carrle smiled.
“You look hot” Ethan winked.
“I know right” Carrle said proudly.
“I feel like having you right now” Ethan said.
“Nah” Carrle shook her head motioning one of the maids to bring her wine.
“Ohh…do you know what else Alex told me?” Ethan asked.
“What?” Carrle sipped her wine.
“Harold slept over at the hospital with Irene” Alex.
“What!” Carrle exclaimed.
Irene returned to the hospital after she was done cleaning up and eating breakfast.
She waved Eric bye as he drove off.
Harold left for work already and till he did, she couldn’t even look him in the face .
She’s yet to recover from the shock that Harold has feelings for her, it’s so unbelievable.
She’s just a nobody,his daughter’s nanny.
She walked into the hospital and met Doctor Fern coming out of the hallway, the look on his face wasn’t so nice, he didn’t look like the cheerful Doc Fern.
“Hi Doc” Irene approached him…
“Irene…” He said, sighing.
“The surgeries are going on already right?” Irene asked.
She know it would have been going on though cause they left the hospital by 9am and it’s 12pm already, the specialists would have gotten here cause they were almost at the hospital when they left .
“There’s a problem” Doc Fern said.
“What is it?” Irene swallowed hard.
“The specialists are not here yet”
“What!” Irene panicked.
“Yes, I’ve been trying them to contact them for hours now and it’s not connecting and the worst thing is your mum’s health care shouldn’t be delayed or..”
“Or what?” Irene asked, holding her breath.
“We’ll lose her”
“Oh..no!” Irene bursted into tears.
“I can clearly see you’ve gone insane again” Harold said to Carrle.
He had allowed her into his office thinking she’ll be more reasonable this time.
“I can’t believe you left your daughter alone to sleep over in a hospital with a slut!” Carrle barked.
“Just shut up Carrle, you’re the slut here and last time i checked Ivory didn’t complain about it,she was even glad i stood by her nanny so what the fvck is your problem” Harold said, regretting why he had let her in in the first place.
Carrle boiled in anger breathing loudly….
“I can see you have nothing left to say, that’s the door” He said to Carrle.
“My greetings to Ethan” Harold added mockingly.
“fvck you!” Carrle swore, seething terribly.
His phone started ringing and he picked it up to check the caller’s ID.
“Irene” He said aloud and Carrle who was about leaving, stopped.
He accepted the call and Irene’s tears broke through his ears.
He stood up immediately.
📞What happened?” He asked.
📞Harold, the specialists are nowhere to be found! Doc Fern said if my mum’s health care is delayed any further,he’s afraid we might lose her. I don’t want to lose her” Irene cried .
📞Oh..my! I’m on my way” Harold dropped the call, he picked the necessary things.
He has forgotten Carrle was there until she blocked his way.
“Get out of my way Carrle!” He yelled.
“You’re going nowhere” She yelled back, dropping her bag.
🌷🌌A NIGHT WITH HIM🌷🌌
🍂 Episode 37
“Get out of my way Carrle!” He yelled.
“You’re going nowhere” She yelled back, dropping her bag.
“Move Carrle,i won’t want to push you” Harold said threateningly .
“Go ahead, push your daughter’s mother out of the way just because of a freaking nanny whose mother is gonna die soon” Carrle said.
“Don’t say that Carrle! Don’t!” Harold warned.
“Well…i did already” She said.
“Out of my way” Harold said, getting impatient.
“You’ll have to push me like you said to get to that door” Carrle said and Harold swore, resisting the urge to push her.
He knew Carrle to be so implicating, she can go file a report that he pushed her and that might get to the media!
He turned and punched some numbers in his telephone and then placed the receiver on his ear.
“You, get in here now and take two other person with you. There’s a wild animal here” Harold said before dropping the call.
He sighed impatiently, deeply regretting why he had allowed Carrle into his office.
“You wanna get your bodyguards to push me out right, you’re such a weakling! Do it yourself” Carrle said.
“I’m not as violent as your ‘husband’ okay?” Harold said and that shut Carrle up.
Few seconds later,the men filed in.
“Get her out of my way first” Harold ordered and they pulled the ranting Carrle away while Harold rushed to the door, he opened it and stepped out.
📞Get the car ready” He called his driver while hurrying to the parking lot.
📞 Okay Mr Harold.
“What’s going on?” Harold asked, breathing heavily as he walked to Irene in the hospital reception, her eyes were swollen with tears and his heart felt heavy, seeing her in that condition.
She sniffed and handed him a face cap when she saw how people were starting to gaze at him, he was unaware though,he collected the face cap and wore it.
“Irene…” He called.
“The specialists are nowhere to be found” She said slowly.
“Doc Fern said my mum is gonna die any moment from now” She added bursting into tears again.
“Damn! Come, let’s go to his office” Harold said.
“He’s not in his office right now” A nurse stopped them.
“Get the hell out of the way and go get Doc Fern for me anywhere he is now” Harold said sternly and the nurse nodded, moving out of the way.
“Everything is gonna be fine” Harold rubbed Irene’s back as they waited for doc Fern in his office.
“I’m so sorry for keeping you waiting Mr Harold” Doc Fern said, walking in.
“Fernando what’s going on?” Harold asked.
Doc Fern sighed “Mr Harold, the specialists are nowhere to be found,I’ve tried contacting them severally,i called the hospital they were coming from in India and was told they left already since yesterday and they even called them hours ago that they’ve gotten to San Francisco, heading to my hospital”
“So where the fvck are they!” Harold said.
“I don’t know too, no one knows and her mum’s health is deteriorating,I’m afraid she has little time left”
“Stop saying that, what’s the next step?” Harold asked.
“I’ll pay anything” He added.
“We’ll have to fly her to India,the same hospital those specialists are coming from” Doc Fern said.
“Are you sure they’re competent? The act of the specialists already said they’re not” Harold said.
“They are, Mr Harold. That hospital is the best in India and 80% of surgeries they perform are always successful”
“Okay then,we should hurry” Harold said.
“The problem is…” Doc Fern paused.
“What?” Irene spoke up.
“I’m not sure she’ll be able to survive through the flight,you know she has very limited time left and the flight process might take a lot of time ” Doc Fern said sadly.
“Gosh! Isn’t there anything you can do to help?” Harold asked.
“Please” Irene pleaded.
“Arrrgh!” Doc Fern sighed, thinking.
“The only thing i can do is to place her on sedatives throughout the flight but her chance of surviving till we get there is 40%”
“Okay, so how much is the bills? I’m gonna pay it” Harold said.
“No,I’ll pay it. I still have some money in my bank account” Irene said and Doc Fern smiled, knowing Irene won’t be able to afford the money..
“I’m afraid you won’t be able to cover the bills Irene” Doc fern said.
“Irene I’ll pay it” Harold offered.
“No, you’ve done more than enough. I won’t let you pay the bills again” Irene said.
“Im not complaining about it, I’m perfectly fine with paying the bills”
“No…no, you’re not paying it Harold. You spent a lot already, i can’t keep making you spend and spend”
“Im fine with it, just let me settle the bills please” Harold said.
“You’re not even my family to take such responsibilities, you paid for everything since we got here and I’m so grateful for that but i won’t allow you take responsibility anymore. No, please” Irene said.
“Can i see your account balance Miss Irene?” Doc Fern asked.
“Of course” Irene said bringing out her phone, she imputed some codes and her bank account balance popped up.
“It’ll be enough right?” She asked, handing her phone to Doc Fern.
He laughed when he saw her account balance.
“I’m sorry for laughing but this is so so small, it won’t even cover quarter of the bills” Doc Fern said.
“What! Really?” Irene asked, she had thought it’d be more than enough.
The pay she has been receiving from Harold plus all the money she received from her customers. It should be more than enough.
“Why is it so costly?” Irene asked.
“Your mum isn’t just doing a surgery Irene but two, other expenses too” Doc Fern said.
“Ohh…” Irene sighed and glanced at Harold while rubbing the back of her neck.
“I’ll settle the bills Doc Fern, get to work. There’s no much time left” Harold said.
“No” Irene said. “You’re just gonna borrow me the money and I’ll pay back.
“Really? That’s not necessary” Harold said.
“It is, Harold. I’ll collect more orders, i need to pay you back”
“It’s fine then. Fern,talk to my manager about the bills” Harold said.
“Okay, so I’ll be flying with Mrs Neave…”
“Won’t i come with you?” Irene asked.
“No, no…that might take a lot of process and she needs to be attended to as soon as possible”
“Ohh” Irene said.
“Will you go in my private jet? The stress of starting to book a flight and all. It’s gonna take a lot of time” Harold said.
“That’ll be great! Mr Harold” Doc Fern smiled.
“Let me contact my aircraft pilot, you should go get ready with the necessary things ” Harold said to Doc Fern who nodded and hurried out of the office.
“Thank you,so much” Irene said to Harold tearily.
“It’s fine” He pulled her into a side hug while he contacted his pilot.
The car was in complete silence as they headed home after leaving the airport .
Doc Fern and Mrs Neave left in his private jet already.
“She’ll be fine” Harold broke the silence in the car after noticing how troubled Irene looks.
“Thank you” Irene said.
“Are you going back to work?” She asked.
“No,I’ve closed for the day”
“Yeah, you need to rest” Irene said.
“You too” Harold said and Irene nodded, knowing she has to get to work to be able to pay back Harold’s money.
“You should stop giving me my pay for now” Irene said.
“Why?” Harold asked.
“I’m gonna be using it to pay for the debt little by little, it’ll go a long way in refunding your money”
“Arrrgh” Harold groaned. “Are you serious about paying back?” He asked.
“Of course ” Irene said, “And please do not refuse” She added.
“I’m gonna keep giving you your pay and you can save it yourself to pay me back when it’s complete” Harold said.
“Fine then ” Irene said.
“You’re making me feel bad for wanting to pay back, i never asked you too” Harold said.
“I know but i want to. Please” Irene said.
“Okay then, anything that makes you feel okay” Harold said.
The car fell back into silence and Harold can’t help but steal glances at her.
Even in her worried state,she still looked beautiful.
He kinda wished he hadn’t confessed his feelings to her at least not in the midst of this problems,cause it seems she’s no longer comfortable with him.
📞Dam, do not go to the hospital after leaving school….” Irene said to Damien as she walked up the stairs.
They just arrived home and she know she needed to fill Damien in on the recent happenings.
“Wow! You never can tell what might have happened to those specialists? I don’t think they’ll deliberately abandon someone who needs urgent medical care without a reason” Nola said after Harold had narrated everything to her.
“I think you’re right and i think they are incompetent too, I’ll have then sued whenever they appear” Harold said, sipping his favorite wine, he was seated with Nola in the kitchen after eating.
“Com’on Harold,you don’t know what might have gone wrong with them. You should be hoping they’re fine instead of having this mindset” Nola said and he shrugged.
“I hope they are fine though. Anyways,I’m glad we didn’t even wait for them any longer, i just hope Irene’s Mum survive through the flight and then the surgery” Harold said.
“She will, i know. Irene told me she’s a strong woman and i believe she’ll fight this” Nola said.
“Where’s Irene by the way?” She added.
“Probably in her room, i don’t want to disturb her,she obviously needs some time to herself” Harold said.
“Yeah, poor girl” Nola shook her head.
“I’m thinking of changing her brother’s school,we both had a discussion and damn! He’s so intelligent, i don’t think the school he attends knows his worth,he needs a better school and I’m gonna do that for him”
“That’ll be great and he’s gat the looks too, the maids are still talking about him till now”
“Really?” Harold laughed.
“So, thinking of the best schools here in San Francisco, i think you should choose the one Ally attends whenever she’s here for summer” Nola said.
“Yes! That’ll be fine. I’ll start making moves once all this is over, you know Mrs Neave have to get well first before i can proceed with my plans”
“Yes, of course”
“I need to go have a nap before Ivory comes back” Harold said and Nola chuckled.
“I’ll start preparing lunch also” Nola said.
“Okay World best chef” Harold teased and laughed when Nola rolled his eyes at him.
“Irene” Harold called walking into her workshop.
“Hi” She smiled. She just left Ivory’s room who’s already having her nap.
“I thought you’d be in your room” Harold said, drawing a chair close to her before sitting.
“Nah, i need to work” Irene said.
“Well… Doc Fern just called me now, they arrived India safely and the surgeons already got to work”
“Thank goodness” Irene breathed out a sigh of relief.
Her mum survived the flight!
She had been unsettled, praying her mum would at least survive the flight cause the state she had been in when they left for India was terrible.
Keep fighting mum.. you’ll survive the surgeries too.
“I’m so glad” Irene smiled.
“Me too” Harold said.
“Ohh… Doc Fern’s calling back” Harold said picking up the call…
📞Hi Doc Fern.
Irene picked up her phone to call Damien and tell him about the new piece of news.
📞What!” Harold’s exclamation stopped him.
“What?” Irene asked worriedly.
“Can you believe the specialists that were assigned to San Francisco to take care of your mum, were kidnapped! That was why they couldn’t make it to the hospital” Harold said,alarmed.
