Husband decides to get revenge on cheating wife, sorta.
She and Cindy, her staffer, would share a room in the hotel where the conference was being held.
Immediately after dinner Megan jumped up and went to her room without saying anything to anyone. She returned a few minutes later with fire glowing from her eyes in her bright red face.
Walking over to Marvin sitting alongside the pool she sat down next to him and said, "Daddy, can I come into the office tomorrow? One of my braces needs adjusting."
"Here, let me take a look at it," he said and moved to get up.
"No, I'd rather do it tomorrow. It's OK for now and I have some things to do tonight."
Marvin was surprised when Megan showed up at is office shortly after it opened. His nurse told him she was there and brought her into the examining room as soon as he was finished with his first patient.
"You're up early this morning. It must be hurting you," he joked as Megan hugged him and kissed him. "Here sit down and I'll take a look."
"It's not hurting at all. That's not what's wrong with me," she said and started to sob.
Marvin pushed his examining stool over to her and after he helped her sit down she didn't let go of his hand. She held it to her face and he could feel the tears wetting his flesh.
"My God, she's pregnant!" was his first thought.
"What's the matter honey? Tell me."
Megan stood up and wrapped her arms around him.
"Daddy? Do you love mommy?"
"Yes, of course I do," he automatically replied but his thoughts rejected his spoken answer.
"Well," she sobbed. "I don't think she loves you or us anymore!"
Marvin immediately knew what she was talking about. She had found out somehow and it was eating her up. That's why she had seemed so cold and distant the last few weeks.
Pushing her gently away he looked into her face and asked, "Why do you think that, honey?"
He already thought he knew the answer but he didn't want to blurt out something in case he was wrong.
"Daddy!" Megan stared into his eyes through her tears. "She's having an affair!"
Her grip on him tightened and she buried her face in his chest as her body heaved with racking sobs.
"I'm sorry I have to be the one to tell you but I can't keep it in anymore," she said in a voice muffled by his lab smock.
"It's OK sweetheart. I already know about it."
She pulled back and looked at him, "You did? How did you find out? Are you angry? Why didn't you tell me?"
"I overhead some conversations and I found some stuff that made me believe it was true and yes, I'm angry, and hurt and I didn't tell you because I haven't figured out how to do that. You've solved that problem anyway."
"What are we going to do?"
"I don't know sweetheart. I'm so sorry you had to find out. How did you find out?"
"I saw them. You know his name is Roberto don't you?"
Marvin nodded is head.
"I saw him go into her motel room and stay there all night when we were at that tournament."
"Is that what you were arguing about when you came back from that bus trip?"
"Yes, and she lied to me!"
"Honey, she's lied to everybody including herself!"
"Now just go home and try not to be upset. Maybe I'll have a better idea of what I'm going to do when she comes back from her Sports Medicine meeting.
"Daddy! Don't you know?" she wailed. "She's not going to any meeting. I checked with Cindy's...Mrs. Wright's daughter and she told me her family is going to Hilton Head for the weekend. I think she's....she's going to be with him!"
"Oh, sweetheart, I'm sorry, I had no idea. Please calm down. I wish you weren't involved in all of this and I tried to keep it from you to protect you. We'll work things out somehow. Now go home and don't say anything. OK?"
"OK, daddy. I love you. I have to go wash my face first."
There was no call from Roberto when he checked his phone that evening.
