Maria had very strict principles about relationships and love in general because her father had cheated on her mother when she was young and let to be with the other woman.
So, she was really cautious of relationships, she dated briefly and tried not to get attached to avoid getting hurt.
She started dating Jake two years ago, and this has been her longest relationship because she felt they loved and understood each other, it even made her consider the possibility of marriage.
Until, a month ago when she went to his apartment only to find a woman there, she didn’t want to cause trouble even though she was upset but the woman introduced herself as Jakes wife.
She was in a daze for a while and eventually looked around the house and noticed pictures of both of them that she had never seen before, beautifully arranged around the house, they even had a two-year-old child.
She did her best to cover up her shock and gave an excuse to leave under the cover of being Jakes colleague that had just stopped by to say hello.
How could she not have known he was married all the while, he had definitely covered his tracks well. She was scared of being cheated on but never did she imagine that she would be the other woman.
