My secret about to kill me – the child my husband thinks is his son, my boyfriend wants him back – part 9
When we got home, my mother inlaw was already in the house, with all my belongings outside, waiting for me.
Her intention was never to allow me inside the house, but to make me a U-turn, straight to my father’s house. But her mouth was slapped to a shut after my husband broke the news of my pregnancy to their hearing.
