To the readers:
This story is not a typical DG Hear romance story. If you don't like revenge, interracial or gangbang stories you may want to pass on this one. Every now and then I have to tell it like it is. A big thank you to WanderingScot for editing this story for me.
I looked out my motel window when I heard voices. I saw a black man and a white woman talking. Normally it wouldn't have bothered me but this time it was different. It was my ex daughter-in law.
This story begins about twelve years ago when my son moved to Michigan. He and a friend of his got job interviews at an auto plant. They both got the job and rented an apartment and moved in together. Eventually his friend got married and my son lived by himself.
He was always on the quiet side around us. We couldn't believe it when his friends always said what fun he was. I guess he kept it from us. In high school he dated a lot of girls but never really stayed with anyone very long. He hardly ever talked about them. I guess that is why we, my wife Catherine and I were surprised when he called us and said he was going to bring a girl home for us to meet.
She was beautiful. She was twenty-two and seemed very friendly. We could see what our son Mark saw in her. We learned her dad was Mexican and her mom Slavic. They met in the Mexican restaurant that she worked in. They had been dating for a few months. We never had a clue.
We were so happy for the two of them. They seemed so happy together. It was about three months later when our son called and said they were getting married. We asked him if she became pregnant and he said no, they were just in love.
We went to Michigan for their wedding shower and met her family. They were such wonderful people and treated us like we knew them for years. We couldn't have felt more welcome.
Our whole family went up for the wedding and all our relatives who lived in Michigan attended the wedding. Everyone said what a wonderful couple they made. If there was any negative point that we saw in her it would be that she was so pretty that she could be high maintenance.
Life for all of us went on fine. We would visit them a couple of times a year and they would come and see us. It did bother us that they were both materialistic. They had to buy a house and each leased a new car. Had to have everything new. I guess it was just the generation.
About a year and a half after they were married Sarah became pregnant. We were happy for them, but her parents were ecstatic. This would be their first grandchild. We already had three others by my daughters. When it was time for the delivery of the baby Mark called us and we went up the next morning. They had a beautiful baby girl and named her Maria. Everyone was so happy for them. We stayed in town for a few days to help in any way we could.
We wondered what kind of dad our son would be and he turned out to be great. Sarah breast fed the baby or left breast milk for her when she went to work. We bought her the pump. Our son had no problems feeding, changing or being up with the baby. We were so proud of him.
Life went on normal for all of us with the regular visits until Maria was around four years old. We received a call from Mark and he said he was taking a couple of days off work and coming home. He told us that Sarah was pregnant again and she told him it probably wasn't his.
We were devastated. Every parent loves their kids if they are ten, twenty or thirty. They are still your kids and you want to do what you can to help them. When Mark came home, he told us what happened.
"I got home from work and Sarah kept walking around looking very nervous. I asked her what the problem was and she told me she just took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I told her that it was fine and we would deal with it. That's when she told she was pretty sure it wasn't mine.
"I got pissed and asked her what the hell she was saying? She told me she was having an affair with a man at work. She had the gall to tell me that she felt they were soul mates. I had to get the hell out of the house before I beat her to death. I told her I was leaving for a couple of days and would deal with it when I got back. My mind was a mess."
Mark's best friend at his wedding was going through a divorce and the two of them went out, probably to get drunk. He didn't come home that night but when he came it the next morning we asked him what his immediate plans were.
He told us he was going to ask her to move out. He wasn't sure what else he was going to do in the short term. Her mother babysat for them while they both worked. He did call her from our house and told her he wanted her out of the house within the month.
We talked to him the following week. He still was quiet on what his plans were. We were surprised to hear that the man she was having an affair with was nine years younger than her and was of Mexican descent.
Like most kids Mark didn't listen to us. She did move out of the house and into an apartment. Our son still gave her a hundred dollars a week for support of Maria. Sarah's mom was devastated when she received the news. Hector, her dad stopped talking to her. They all loved Mark and couldn't believe Sarah could be so stupid. We believed that they thought Mark contributed to the divorce in some way but never pushed the issue.
Mark did tell us he decided not to apply for a divorce till after the birth of the baby. Sarah and the baby would both be covered under Mark's insurance which would cost a pretty penny. He was afraid that if the child was his that he might get stuck with the bills.
Mark and Sarah only talked when it concerned Maria. Christine, Sarah's mother usually was the go between. Mark said she cried many times about the breakdown of their marriage. She actually hoped that maybe they could work it out and get back together.
We heard that Ray, the possible father of the child quit his job at the restaurant and went back to Mexico for awhile till things cooled down. It was probably a good move.
When it was time for the child's birth we asked Mark if he went to the hospital since for Maria he helped in the delivery room and was the proud dad.
He told us that he went to work. Sarah's Mom was the only one there during the delivery. Mark said he went after work to see the baby. When he saw the baby boy was definitely darker he looked at Christine with tears in his eyes and told the nurse not to list him as the father of the child and left the hospital without even talking to Sarah.
The following day he went to see a lawyer and started divorce proceedings. We had heard that Ray was back in town but Mark never said whether or not he had seen him.
Mark had to give Sarah half their net worth and a hundred twenty-five dollars a week in support for Maria. They had joint custody of Maria. Mark just didn't want to fight it. He said he was just going to make sure his daughter was well taken care of. He had to take out another loan to pay her portion. He did get the house and most everything in it.
Over the last couple of years he visited with us and always had Maria with him. She loved my wife, her grandmother. I believe it is because my wife is a very caring person. She did everything with Maria. They would go shopping, play games, ride bikes and anything else you could think of.
Maria often cried when she had to go home. My wife told her she would see her again soon. In fact my son bought her a cell phone and she calls my wife every week.
I haven't talked with Sarah since we heard about her cheating. If she calls to talk to Mark or Maria when they are at our house, I just hand them the phone. I can't forgive her for what she did to my son and his marriage. Our whole family dislikes her now.
As I mentioned our son hardly ever tells us anything. Even when we ask we're lucky to get an answer. He's a very private person and I guess holds it all in.
One day Maria called us and told us that her mom and Ray got married. They named the baby boy, Ray Jr. Maria calls her half- brother little Ray. She calls her stepfather Ray, never dad.
Mark seems to just go along, never tells us much. He says his life is work, taking care of Maria and when she's with her Mom, he goes to the bar with friends. He never mentions any women except as friends.
I believe he was still in love with Sarah and probably would have considered taking her back if the baby was his. His ex in-laws still love him. In fact his ex father in law and one of Sarah's uncles are on the same bowling team as Mark. It really is an odd situation. They wanted to keep in touch with us but it is just too much for us. We cannot accept the fact that their daughter ruined so many lives. We do send a Christmas card each year but that's about it.
I've seen Sarah through our Son's window when she drops off Maria every once in awhile when we are there. I can't get myself to even say hi to her. One day when we went to visit Mark and Maria, there was a little boy there. Maria told us it was her brother Ray, he was three at the time.
Christine who usually watches him had an emergency to attend to and Mark offered to take him for a few hours until his mother got off work. Mark said he didn't hold any ill will towards the kid, it wasn't his fault his mom was a slut. We all went to an Italian restaurant. Mark ordered little Ray spaghetti. The little guy was on the chubby side but cute.
Mark said he has him over to play with his sister once in a while. He seemed to listen to Mark. The only problem is he kept calling Mark 'Dad'. He would hear Maria say it so he just repeated it.
