Marty sat on the sofa bed that young Christopher had been sleeping on and waited until his wife came in.

“I don’t know how to put this Marty she said crying again.

Christopher black mailed me into doing what I did.

“Did you have sex with him?

“No Marty, I swear on the live of our God son.

Then she went on to tell her husband about the man who had raped her and the child that she had adopted.

“How did Christopher know?

“Because he was at the same orphanage as my son William; that is what they named him after he was taken away from me.”

“You hid this away from me all these years knowing that I wanted a son and that you could no longer have children; why?

“Because I loved you and didn’t want to hurt you; what happened with Michael shouldn’t have I was drunk at the time he said he would take me home but instead he raped me in the in Scorer’s park.

When I found out that I was pregnant. I couldn’t tell you but confronted Michael and told him I was having his child. He wasn’t interested so I made you believe the child was yours until the guilt of it all became too much. I could no longer live with the lie anymore. I told you that I was going in for a check up the day my waters broke and my labour started. They took my child away from me after I held him briefly. And I’ve never seen him to this day.”


Christopher threatened to tell you everything and he humiliated me and made me take off my clothes and lie on the bed. The rest you know.”

Marty If you leave me I will understand; what I did today was unforgiveable but I had little choice don’t you see.

“He took all the money from the draw before he left as well.”

“We can always get more money Pat; but we need to sort this mess out once and for all.”

“Pack your things we are getting out of here.”

“We cannot go on running all our lives Marty; we must face up to them.”

“I know and that is why we are going home.”

“Marty you are a good man, I do not deserve you after what I did, but I did it because I loved you and love you still.”

Marty got up from the sofa and held his wife.
