Spank, please I said with such a dismissive tone. After all you have done to me I know you aren’t tripping on me. You don’t know what I did or was out doing.
Sen look, this is getting out of hand. I had a dream I was doing some really bad things to you. I’m not gonna put my hands on you but you aren’t gonna disrespect me either.
It was almost 4 in the morning and our argument was getting more heated the more we kept talking. I was hurting and he couldn’t see that which hurt even more. His pride and ego was the source of his anger. I asked if he were sleeping in this room so I could know where I would be sleeping. It was definitely wherever he wasn’t. He went to room fuming and he got in the bed and went to sleep. The next morning we didn’t say a word to each other. We went about our day business as usual. We actually didn’t speak to each other until it happened.
I walked in our room and saw a letter on the bed. He was downstairs playing the video game.
“You are hereby summoned to appear in family court to establish the paternity of said child. The mother has named you as the father. A DNA test will be completed on this date to establish paternity.”
All I could say was WOW! I grabbed the rest of the packet and looked to see what the child’s birthday was and who the mother was. I had been through this before and the child wound up not being his child. But here we go again. The mother was his daughter’s mother. <deep breath>
When I first met Spank’s daughter’s mother she was pregnant and I asked was this his child. He said no. I had no choice but to go with that. The baby was born about 3 months after we met. She called a few times, that I knew of, regarding the baby but eventually stopped mentioning it altogether. The word on the street was that the baby wasn’t his and he went with that. Now, everyone would find out the truth.
When did you get this letter? I asked him.
It came in the mail today. She really gonna try to pin this baby on me. That baby isn’t mine, Sen.
Well, she’s thinks it’s yours for a reason. Did you sleep with her around the time when she would have gotten pregnant?
Yea, but it wasn’t anything like that.
Well that means there is a strong possibility the baby’s yours. <deep sigh> I can’t deal with another kid. So what if this baby is yours we can’t have anymore kids because you will already have a total of 3?
No, the baby won’t have any effect on us. I will take care of him if he’s mine but that doesn’t stop us from having our family.
I took what he said at face value. We couldn’t wait to find out if this child was his or not. I was mad and hurt because accepting a child in the middle of our marriage was asking for a lot especially since I had his daughter more than he did. I couldn’t, no didn’t want to go through this. I was on my way out any way but I knew I still loved him. I didn’t want to be a failure and a divorce meant I failed at my marriage but I knew I could do better. He, on the other hand, was confident would be back together.
