My perfect life is falling apart. My wife is leaving me, and I’m fighting for our marriage, our kids—for her. Then she walks through the door, and everything changes. Beautiful, sweet Beth. She’s much too young, but I can’t stay away. Despite our secrecy, someone knows. They’re using the information to destroy me. It’s not a matter of if my marriage will survive, or if I’ll be able to find happiness with my new love…it’s a matter surviving at all. I have to unravel this web of lies before it’s too late.
I was born into wealth. My family had a successful cotton plantation in the late eighteen hundreds and then later invested in oil. Davis was a prominent name in the South during the late 1800s through the early 1900s. As the need for oil become front and center, my ancestors moved the family to Texas, purchasing mass quantities of land for oil rigs. As a result, the Davise's became one of the first families in America to reach billionaire status. My grandfather was very proud of this fact and let everyone around him know it. By twenty-seven I had finished law school, passed the bar exam, and was starting my own firm with my best friend from elementary school, Porter Matthews. I was successful in my own right despite my family’s enormous amount of wealth. However, that wasn’t good enough. My father and grandfather felt it was time for me to settle down and carry on the Davis name. It couldn’t just be anyone I had to settle down with, it had to be someone worthy of everything the Davis name had to offer.
I had been dating Parker Matthews since freshman year of college. We both went to Yale and then I continued to NYU for law school. She followed me to New York and then we chose to move closer to our families in Boston. It seemed like a match made in heaven. Parker’s grandfather and my grandfather had been best friends, as were Porter and I. It seemed like the next logical step to settle down and marry Parker. My grandfather was delighted.
I use the security camera to watch my wife sleep. She’s beautiful and peaceful. Parker is the epitome of socialite wives. She’s drop dead gorgeous with her black hair, porcelain white skin, and navy eyes. She looks stunning on my arm at any event we go to. She’s kind and generous, and while she may not be the most perfect mom, she did give me three sons to carry on the family name. Fortunately, she has no idea the extent of what I’ve done. She has no idea that I consciously made a decision that will implode the bubble we’ve been living under for the past fourteen years.
I take another sip of scotch and flip to the camera in my oldest son Trent Jr’s room. He’s eleven now. Just had his birthday last week. I almost missed it because I was too busy getting everything I wanted, needed, and craved from her. I remember watching her on her knees with her mouth tightly wrapped around my cock and her big doe eyes staring back at me. I realized right then and there I could never say no to her. I was in love with her. I am in love with her. Unfortunately, she’s not my wife.
TJ has been asleep for a couple of hours and hasn’t moved an inch. His innocence brings tears to my eyes. I’ve worked so hard over the years to become a successful lawyer and provide the best of everything for my children. Now their world is about to collapse from beneath them. We’re going to lose it all; the house, money, family, and reputation. I did this to them. I am the monster who couldn’t keep his feelings in check. I am the one who allowed himself to get involved with another woman. I alone am to blame. I know I should hate myself, but I don't. Although I hate that I've destroyed the lives of my sons and my wife, there is the side that is completely happy. I've never been more alive and free as I am when I'm with her. She's my everything. She makes me complete. Unfortunately, she's eighteen and I'm forty-one. Despite the fact that I love her, by many standards, I'd be considered a pedophile--a child molester and a monster.
