My secret about to kill me – the child my husband thinks is his son, my boyfriend wants him back – part 12
8 years had passed and my marriage is still going strong.
Chimziterem is my handsome son’s name. He looks exactly like me, but tall.
My husband is tall too. He use to say that, Chimzim took only his height. He is growing very fast, smart, and strong. Things turned around for my husband in his business after the arrival of my son.
We got our own house 4 years after he was delivered. We are living rich now. We still continued trying to see if I can conceive again, but no hope. My husband kept saying that, he was fully contented with Chimzim, that I should stop stressing myself with the issue of having another child.
We already gotten the money, I see no reason he was against us visiting a fertility hospital. He always changed the topic anytime I raised the issue.
He kept using this phrase to shut me off, that God is the only one who gives children, that I’m Ok, he too is Ok, that if it’s God’s intention that we should be blessed with only one child, then so be it, that we shouldn’t challenge God.
If only he knew how desperate and anxious I was to have another child, atleast the one he would use to endure incase something happens or the truth gets blown open.
I kept on praying, hoping I get pregnant.
We continued living and enjoying my marriage until Peter reappeared in my life again.
I was busy arranging my shpp, when someone whose voice sounded familiar called me from behind.
I turned and was facing Peter, my exboyfriend. His facial expressions didn’t show someone who came for a casual visit or someone who was happy to bump into an old friend. He was looking very serious and dishevelled.
He said, he had been scrambling all corners of the world, trying to find me, until he met my friend, who gave him the address to my shop.
Peter was the man I never wanted to see in my life again.
He asked me about what we did years ago, on whether it was successful or not. That I didn’t call him back, to share the goodnews with him.
“What goodnews?’ I interrupted, giving him a a serious mean look.
“You shove me off, meaning you succeeded. And you don’t want me anywhere near my child”
“Your child? Listen here Peter, reason I blocked you off, was because I regretted what we did. I cheated on my husband and soiled my marriage. So blocking you off was part of my own way of dealing with my active conscience.”
“You don’t know how to lie, I have always told you that. Before coming here, I already made my background digging, and was confirmed you have a handsome son for me. And he should be 8 years old now.” he said with enough confidence and continued “I’m sorry that I’m doing this, I’ve come for my son. I had an accident which rendered me impotent. I can’t father a child anymore. So, my dear, this child is mine and I want him. Nothing on earth is going to stop me from having my son. And don’t try hiding from me again, I already know your residential address and the school he attends. I said let me inform you first before taking any action. I’m giving you 1 week to have your final moments with him or your husband will be getting the wind of what we did years ago.” his threatening words were loud enough
