Ramon forced his wife, Lily, to have a child through a surrogate mother because he did not want her appearance to change. He later ran away with the baby, but karma hit him back.
Although from different backgrounds, Ramon and Lily fell in love with each other. He was the richest man in their college, while Lily was the most beautiful girl on campus with an incredible figure.
Two years after graduating, the couple decided to tie the knot and move into Ramon's modern home. As the head of the family, Ramon always had the final say in decisions and controlled everything.

Soon, Lily expressed her sentiments about having children. "Ramon, I think it's time we have children. I want to be a mother, get pregnant, and raise a family with you," she said. While Ramon agreed, he did not want his wife to get pregnant.
Ramon knew that conceiving a child would ruin his wife's figure and change her appearance, so he opted for surrogacy. However, Lily refused and claimed that she wanted to conceive and carry her own child.
"You're going to become fat and ugly," Ramon said. "You won't be the same woman I fell in love with." Lily tried to bargain and promised that she would work hard to lose the pregnancy weight, but her husband stood still.

"We're having a baby through a surrogate mother, and that's final," he said sternly. "But what if I want to have the child?" Lily replied, to which her husband said, "If you won't follow me, then get out of my house."
Ultimately, Lily had no choice but to follow her husband. After all, he's the one putting food on the table while working for their family business. In a few weeks, the surrogate mother, Victoria, came by and decided to move near the couple.
As time passed, Victoria visited the couple's home more often and got close to Ramon. Slowly, they fell in love and realized they wanted to be with each other forever. In her eighth month of pregnancy, Victoria and Ramon expressed their sentiments while Lily was out.

"I don't think I can do this, Ramon. This baby has your wife's genes, and it hurts me," Victoria said. "Yes, but he also has my genes. He will know you as his mother, the woman who carried him for nine months," Ramon replied.
While holding Victoria's growing belly, Lily entered the household in shock. "What's going on?" she asked. Ramon took a deep sigh and told his wife the truth. "There's no point hiding this from you," he said while grabbing Victoria's hand.
"We love each other, and we're raising this baby together," he added. Enraged, Lily stepped forward and slapped her husband's face. "Really? That's my son in there, and there's no way you can take him away from his real mother," she replied.

"Really?" Ramon said. "I have the money to fight with the best attorney in this city. Can you?" Lily stormed out of the room and cried on one of the park benches. She knew that she would never win against her husband, so Lily stayed quiet for a few months.
Depressed and lonely, she went to a friend, Gemma, to air her sentiments. Soon the friend came up with a plan to win her child back. One day, Gemma disguised as a babysitter for Ramon and Victoria while they went on a trip.
When she got the house to herself, Gemma trashed the place and took photos. She then sent it to Lily, who forwarded it as a report to social services, claiming that Ramon took her child to live in an unhealthy environment.

Social services immediately took action and granted Lily custody of her son. A few days later, an angry Ramon called her up and got mad. "You're going to regret this," he said, but Lily couldn't care less. She was just happy to have her son back.
