blackmail

 

he’s been with her for 4 years,

having knocked her up the first night

they did the deed &

she had 2 kids by 2 other fathers

prior to that hot & steamy

moment,

some time after work

where they had met each other---

and the father of the second daughter

was still stalking her &

they thought the kid might be his

& a whole load of drama

ensued.

 

when the dust cleared,

the kid was that of the new

acquaintance &

what followed was a traditional father

staying with his kid,

even though love had not entered the

arena yet.

 

he was 10 years younger &

unappreciative of her,

cheating on her early &

never telling her,

then sliding it into conversation,

later, when he thought the coast was

clear.

 

father has a daughter but he wants a

son---

he wants a son from the same mother & yet

she does not want to go through the whole

bottle & diaper routine

one

more

time---

so, he decides to withhold sex from her &

she is in her

prime---

he decides to withhold sex &

gets her two daughters from the other fathers

walk around the house day in & day out

commenting on how they want a brother,

as if to influence their mother who does not

want this---

but she feels that if she doesn’t give him what he

wants,

that the problems evident in their relationship

will not stop,

not to mention the fact that they may never

have sex again.

 

she sacrifices herself,

giving up her own wants & needs

to make him happy

(as if another kid is some kind of

magical antidote),

fully aware that she may not even have a

son

(so does that mean she is supposed to keep on

popping them out until she does?)---

she is being

blackmailed.
