A faithful husband was shocked when he came face to face with the consequences of his dalliances with women as a young man. She wanted the world.

Mark was a family man happily married to a beautiful woman, Rose, whom he met a decade before. The two of them had a male child named Ron and lived happily in a big house.

Mark was grateful for his life; he had a stable job, a beautiful family, good health. All that was threatened when one day, he opened the door to a girl with an outrageous claim.

"I'm your daughter," she told him.

"Huh what?" he mumbled, confused.

"I said I'm your daughter!" she exclaimed.The noise brought Mark's son and wife to the door.

"What's wrong honey? Who's this?" Rose asked when she saw the girl.

"I'm April, your husband's big mistake," the girl answered.

Rose was just as confused, but when she put two and two together, she was stunned into silence. One glance at her husband told her what she needed to know — he didn't know about the child.

"What is this Mark?" she asked.

"I don't know baby," he said honestly.

"Allow me to fill you in," April said with flair.

"Your husband got a woman named Mary pregnant when he was younger. She kept knowledge of you from me until she died recently. An address of your place was written in the journal she left me so I came looking for you."

"I had no idea," Mark said sadly.

"I'm here because I'm lost without her and I need you to take me in."

Rose was a bit skeptical about the whole affair, but Mark was enraptured by April. So in the end, April moved in with them.

April acted normal the first few days but, after that, started misbehaving. She complained about everything from the portion of her meals to the shows the family watched on TV. In her room, she would play the music so loudly that it would bother Rose, who often worked from home.

Arguments arose, but nothing changed, and April grew bolder. Then one day, she overheard a conversation between Mark and Rose. Rose wanted her gone because of her issues, but her husband would not have it. His daughter had to be taken care of.

April crept away with fear and anger in her heart. In truth, she was a fraud, so she decided to run away before they had a chance to find out — but not without some money.

That night, when everyone had gone to bed, April changed into hiking gear and crept into Mark's study, where he kept the money. She stuffed what she saw in a small bag and had been sneaking out of the office when she heard a voice.

"What are you doing?" It was the child named Ron. He held a water bottle in his hands as he asked the question. He didn't let her answer. "The study is off limits to us kids, I'm reporting you!" he squealed then ran off.

April rushed to get her things from her room, but Mark and Rose were waiting for her at the front door.

"Start explaining," Mark said menacingly. April knew she was in trouble and quickly decided blackmail would get her out.

"OK the truth is I'm a fraud. I'm not your real daughter, I'm her friend. I was there when her mom died and gave her some journals. Inside one was your address and some details about you that helped me find you. I just wanted to take advantage of the situation because I was in a rough place."

"Give me a reason why I should not call the police," Rose growled.

"Because if you do, Mark will never know his real daughter."

Mark and Rose eventually agreed to April's terms, and the next day, they were led to meet Jane, Mark's real daughter, who shared a clear resemblance to him. April took advantage of their distraction with each other to get away.

After the introduction, Jane confessed she did not look for Mark because she didn't want to ruin his family. Jane also told him he wouldn't have known of her mom's pregnancy because she was born after their breakup.

Following that encounter, Mark and Rose welcomed Jane into their family, and they all lived together happily. As for the manipulative April, her luck ran out. Mark saw on TV that she had attempted a similar scam with another couple and had been caught by the police.

What did we learn from this story?

  • Justice always prevails. April took advantage of the tragedy that happened to Mark's former lover to infiltrate their home, but thanks to karma, she did not get away with it. Instead, she revealed her own game out of fear and was captured on her next attempt.
  • Take responsibility. April was able to fool Mark because he had a strong sense of responsibility. He took her in immediately; she claimed to be his and he cared for her despite all the trouble she made. It all ended when he discovered she was an impostor, but that didn't stop him from taking his real daughter in.
