His Nanny Mate Chapter 73 By Eve Above Story

Chapter 73: Keeping Secrets

Edrick “Edrick…” My mother dropped her tone of voice and leaned closer to me. She took my hand in hers and gave me a serious, knowing look that only a mother could have. “Is she pregnant?”

I frowned, hiding the fact that my heart had just started beating rapidly. “What?” I said, shaking my head. “What makes you think that?”

My mother folded her arms across her chest and narrowed her eyes. “Edrick, I’m your mother. You can’t lie to me.” There was a long silence after she spoke, but her eyes never wavered from mine. Even in her old age, she was still just as astute and level-headed as ever. I had never been able to lie to my mother, and she knew that. Finally, I caved.

“Yes,” I replied quietly. “She is pregnant.”

“I knew it,” my mother said. I could tell that she was hiding a bit of a smirk at her miniature victory, but at the same time, she was dead serious. “Is it yours?”

I didn’t answer right away. I felt a lump rise in my throat after being put on the spot. Sure, I was planning on telling my mother eventually, but now? Like this? It felt so out of the blue, and I had no time at all to prepare an explanation.

“It’s not—”

“You know, the way you act around Ella,” my mother interrupted, lowering her voice even more, “if you had another illegitimate child… It would only cause more problems for you, for the daughter you already have, and the baby. Not to mention the emotional toll it would take on that poor girl to feel like she birthed a baby that could never be truly loved by its father.”

I shook my head. “It’s not mine, mom,” I lied, this time taking care to hide my lie even though it pained me to hide something like this from my mother. “It’s someone else’s.”

My mother went silent for a moment. I could practically see the gears turning in her head; I knew that she didn’t believe me. “Darling, I already heard all about your visit to the hospital this morning,” she admitted. “You know, the couples that you let her ahead of are well known, after all, and they were very put out by the entire thing. But I digress, and it was well within your rights to do such a thing if you felt it necessary. If it wasn’t yours, though, why would you bother going to the doctor’s appointments with her? And why would you care so much as to go against our hospital’s policy like that?”

I started to panic again. “I only wanted to help her,” I lied once more. “She doesn’t have anyone else, and those human doctors…” What was I supposed to say? That I cared about my daughter’s nanny out of the kindness of my heart and didn’t want her visiting some shoddy doctor who wouldn’t give her and the baby in her belly the best care possible? My mother would never believe it; she had always been an intuitive woman, and even now, I knew that she didn’t believe me one bit.

But, much to my surprise, she didn’t question further. “Well then,” she said with a slight sigh, leaning back in her chair. “That’s very nice of you. I wish her all the best in her pregnancy.”

Just then, Selina emerged from the kitchen with tea. She set the tray down, then began to pour a cup for my mother.

“Oh, thank you, but that won’t be necessary,” my mother said, standing. “I only wanted to pop in for a few minutes. I should be going now.”

Selina seemed a bit surprised, as was I — but I obliged, honestly relieved to know that such a difficult conversation was over for now. At the same time, however, I couldn’t help but feel guilty for lying to my mother… And I couldn’t help but feel even more guilty when I saw Moana standing in the kitchen, watching me.

After my mother left, I retreated to my office for the remainder of the day. I spent the majority of my time there pacing back and forth in my study, wondering what to do. I would have to address this soon; eventually, my family would find out. I couldn’t hide it forever, and already I was on thin ice for blatantly lying to my mother’s face like that in a way that no son ever should. But what was I supposed to do? I was put on the spot, and I hadn’t prepared yet. While my mother was a perfectly reasonable and kind woman, I simply wasn’t ready for the consequences yet, and what if she told my father?

Unless she told my father already… But no, I told myself; if he knew, he would have certainly been here by now, berating me for hours. That was what he had done with Ella, and she was a purebred werewolf. I could only imagine his reaction when he found out that I was not only getting ready to bring another illegitimate child into the family, but a half-human one at that.

Finally, dinner time came and I decided to emerge from my office to join Ella and Moana. They were already sitting at the table when I arrived. Moana was tucking a napkin into the front of Ella’s shirt while Ella stared hungrily at the plate of steak and potatoes in front of her.

“Sorry I’m a little late,” I said, sitting down in my chair. “Work got ahead of me this afternoon.” Of course, I wasn’t going to divulge to Moana that I’d actually spent the afternoon doing nothing but pondering how to tell my mother about the baby, and I especially wasn’t going to tell her that in front of Ella.

Moana didn’t answer. I didn’t think much of it at first and began to cut my steak, but when the table remained silent whereas Moana would have normally begun to ask Ella questions about her day by now, I began to get suspicious. When I glanced up from my steak, I saw her glaring at me. She quickly looked away and popped a bite of glistening steak into her mouth, chewing slowly, but I saw the look she gave me. It was akin to the look she gave me in the kitchen when my mother left earlier that day.

I cleared my throat and took a sip of my wine.

“Delicious steak,” I said, just wanting to fill the awkward silence. “Another craving?”

“No.” Moana’s voice was sharp and quick, like a jab with a knife. “It’s just what Selina happened to prepare tonight.”

I swallowed, unable to ignore the fresh tone in Moana’s voice, but I figured that it was just the pregnancy hormones, or maybe she was tired. Regardless, I wouldn’t argue. After all, as the man in the baby supply store said, I shouldn’t argue with the mother of my child.

“Well,” I said, cutting another piece of meat, “I’m sure Selina knows what you like, and what’s good for the baby as well. I’m happy to see you eating such hearty meals.”

Suddenly, Moana dropped her fork and her knife on her plate with a clang and abruptly pushed her chair back. She tossed her balled-up napkin down on the table with a frown, causing even Ella to look up from her meal and give her a confused look.

“I’m actually not feeling well,” she said. “I’m going to lie down. Ella, come get me when you’re finished, alright?”

Ella nodded slowly. Moana cast me one last dirty glance before turning on her heel and walking briskly out of the room.

His Nanny Mate (Moana and Edrick Morgan)

I’m a new grad human in huge debt, and cheated by my Omega boyfriend. When I got wasted in a bar, I didn’t expect to have the best sex ever. And the very next morning, I also didn’t expect to wake up and find my One-Night-Stand hookup was my ex-boyfriend's Alpha billionaire BOSS…. How things are going to turn out after I accidentally became his 5-year-old daughter's live-in nanny? ____________   How did this happen? How did I wind up finally becoming employed, only for it to turn out that my new employer was the same person who I had a one night stand with just two nights ago? “I didn’t know that you would be the employer. If I had known, I wouldn’t have applied….” “It’s alright. I knew it was you when I hired you. I did it on purpose.” I scrunched my eyebrows together. “What do you mean?”      

His Nanny Mate (Moana and Edrick Morgan) Chapter 1 Betrayal

Moana It was a hot summer evening, and I had just spent the entire day job hunting. Finding work as a human in a world dominated by werewolves, especially in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, wasn’t easy. Even though I had a degree in Early Childhood Education, no schools wanted to hire me because I was a human. Werewolf parents were outraged at the thought of a “worthless human” teaching their children, as if my skills, drive, and education meant nothing. So, I was now limited to service jobs, which were also unfortunately hard to come by because the job market was oversaturated with other humans who were also desperate to pay their bills. If I didn’t find a job soon, though, I would lose my apartment. My landlord had already given me a thirty-day notice. If I didn’t pay my rent -- and the three months of rent that I already owed -- by the end of the thirty days, he was going to evict me. At least I still had my boyfriend, Sam. He wasn’t extraordinarily well-off either despite being a werewolf, but at least he had a job and could pay his rent. We had been together for three years now and had known each other for five, so maybe it was time to talk about moving in together soon. As I was walking down the packed city street, a thin layer of sweat caked to my forehead from spending the day running from business to business as I tried to find someone who would hire me, I started to realize how hungry I was. I couldn’t afford to eat out, but the delicious smells coming from the restaurants I passed began to make my mouth water. One particular restaurant across the street caught my eye, but not because of the smell of food. I stopped in my tracks, my eyes widening. Inside the restaurant, right in the window, was Sam. He wasn’t alone; he was with another woman, and they were… Kissing. “You’ve gotta be fucking kidding me,” I said out loud, causing a few passersby to turn their heads and give me weird looks. Sam had told me that he was busy recently, that he had a lot of work… Was this what he was really doing? Cheating on me with some other woman? The fury bubbled up inside of me, and without thinking, I stormed across the street and toward the restaurant window. My stomach turned as I came closer. This woman was gorgeous -- basically a supermodel -- and that didn’t make me feel any better about the situation. Not only was Sam cheating on me, but he was cheating on me with someone who looked like that. She was thin, blonde, and tan with long legs, wearing a skimpy evening dress and high heels. I do get compliments on my face, body and long red hair, but in that moment, I felt so worthless as I stood there looking at Sam and his mistress. How could he do this to me? I stopped in front of the window. Neither of them even saw me standing there, they were so absorbed in their makeout session. So, I banged on the window. Sam and the mystery woman both jumped, their eyes widening when they saw me. I stormed over to the entrance and ran inside, ignoring the strange looks from the restaurant staff and customers, and ran up to where Sam and the woman sat. “How fucking dare you?!” I yelled, my hands curled up into fists at my sides. “We’ve been together for three years and you’re cheating on me?” The woman looked back and forth between Sam and I with an embarrassed expression on her face as the restaurant fell silent, but Sam’s face showed only anger and resentment. Without saying a word, Sam stood and grabbed me by the arm, dragging me out of the restaurant. He was too strong for me to resist, so I stumbled after him and back out into the busy street with tears streaming down my cheeks. “You’re making a fool of both of us, Moana,” he growled once we were outside. “I’m making a fool of us?” I replied, my voice still raised. “You’re making out with another woman in public!” Sam merely rolled his eyes and pulled me further away from the door. His werewolf eyes burned a bright orange color and his face was wrought with anger. “Control your temper,” he whispered, pushing me roughly up against the side of the building. “You’re just an ordinary human. You should feel lucky that I even entertained you for three years.” His words stung, and my vision became clouded with tears. “Why her?” I croaked as a sob caught in my throat. Sam, the man who had told me he loved me for three years, merely chuckled. “You’re useless to me,” he snarled. “She’s a Beta. Her family is incredibly wealthy and powerful, and thanks to her, I’ll be starting a new job at WereCorp next week.” WereCorp was the biggest corporation in the world. Not only did they control all of the banks, but they also developed the newest and most widely-used cryptocurrency of the 21st Century: WCoin. I never used it -- humans weren’t allowed to -- but it made a lot of werewolves extremely rich when it first came out. He continued, “What have you done for me aside from mooching off of me because you can’t even get a job of your own? You’re nothing compared to her. How dare you even question my decision to move on.” There was nothing else I could say; nothing else that could come to mind aside from getting the hell away from him. I shoved Sam away finally, pushing myself away from the wall. “Fuck you,” I growled, my rage taking over as I raised my hand and slapped him hard across the face. Passersby were looking at us now, but I didn’t care. Without another word, I turned on my heel and stormed away without looking back. As I walked numbly down the street and wiped the tears from my eyes, I thought about what Sam was like when we first met; he had been nothing more than a bullied Omega in high school with no confidence, no prospects, and no friends. I had helped him gain confidence with my love and support, and this was how he repaid me? By leaving me for some blonde, all for a job at WereCorp? Nothing angered me more than knowing that my boyfriend of three years, and best friend for five years, had left me so easily over money and power. I was still fuming when I stepped out into the intersection, too numb to look properly before crossing. Just then, I heard the sound of a car honking and looked up to see a luxury car driving straight for me. Cursing to myself, I stumbled backwards and fell into a puddle just before the car hit me. The car came to a screeching halt next to me, which was surprising since I assumed that they would just drive away after nearly hitting me, but what surprised me even more was the person who sat inside the car when the window rolled down. Edrick Morgan, CEO of WereCorp. Edrick was known not only for being the youngest CEO in the history of the company and the heir to the largest fortune in the world, but also for his stunning appearance -- and although I was incredibly hurt and angry about everything that had happened today, I couldn’t help but notice his strong jawline, his muscular shoulders and arms, and his incredibly handsome face. I opened my mouth to say something about how he had nearly hit me, but before I could, he looked me up and down and tossed a wad of cash out the window, driving away with a rev of his engine. Edrick Morgan, the CEO of WereCorp, had nearly hit me with his car… and tossed me money like I was some beggar. All werewolves really were arrogant assholes. I threw the cash on the ground and stood, cursing under my breath as I realized how soaked and dirty my clothes were. I’d have to go home and see if I could scrounge up some change to take them to the laundromat so I could continue job hunting tomorrow, but admittedly for now I just wanted to drown my sorrows. I walked for a few blocks, finally spotting a bar that seemed nice and quiet.Taking a deep breath and smoothing down my stained shirt, I walked through the doors and approached the bouncer. The bouncer narrowed his eyes at me and looked me up and down, taking in my dirty appearance sniffing the air in front of me. “No humans allowed without a member escort,” he growled, folding his arms. I frowned. “Member?” I asked. “I’m a paying customer. Just let me buy a drink.” The bouncer shook his head and began to usher me toward the door like I was some sort of nuisance. “Is this even legal?” I said, raising my voice. “You can’t just discriminate against humans like this! Is my money worthless here just because of--” “She’s with me,” a stern and clear voice suddenly said from behind. The bouncer and I both looked up and turned to see a man in a suit standing on the stairs. Edrick Morgan.
