Yup. That is the crux of the matter.
That is exactly what Verity’s mother has done to me and indeed is exactly what my father has done to me too.
There is a very special bond between a father and his daughter, even more than the bond with a partner or wife, even more than the bond between a father and son.
If a son or daughter predeceases the parents, if it is a son, there will generally be no tears but great sadness. But with a daughter, the wife will not cry but the father will be destroyed, as though his entire world has gone; there is absolutely nothing left, nothing to live for.
Clearly, there is absolutely no bond between my father and I, none at all. Even though he knows that I am innocent and has probably always known, his pride and ego will not permit him to admit that he was wrong.
With Verity’s mother, a great deal of it has been greed but the majority has been pay back.
I have talked previously about the fact there was a possibility of getting back with Samantha and I even broke up with my girlfriend, Mel, to “pave the way”.
But, after thinking about it for a while, I realised that nothing had changed and, most importantly, Samantha had not changed.
But something did not feel right. After all, she had bundles of cash, had Verity after refusing joint custody point blank and had admitted that she was not maternal, so why the change of heart and so quickly after the divorce had been finalised?
After financially raping me, she did have some fucking cheek in asking me to get back with her again. I suspect that she was planning to do it to me all over again, now that I had another house. And she knew my father had pots of cash.
Forget about what it would have done to me. She was prepared to let me fully into Verity’s life and then ditch me yet again for more cash. What would that have done to my Verity? Samantha didn’t care one jot about her.
THAT IS THE MEASURE OF THE WOMAN
So, I decided that I would say no and unsurprisingly, when I called Samantha and told her the news, she went “ape shit”. She then immediately got engaged to “him”.
Her reaction was not just being upset. I have actually never seen her react like that before; if I had been in the room with her rather than on the other end of the phone, her whole face would have been bright red. The conclusion: I had foiled her plans to set me up a second time.
But she had an alternative plan to get more cash and that was to embezzle Michael Jordan Caravans. Her greed had no limits
Although she would never ever admit it to anyone, she has never forgiven me for that refusal. The coercion and manipulation of Verity to accuse me of abuse was, to her, the perfect solution.
Yes, I rejected her a long time ago but Samantha always plays the long game.
I doubt that she was sad that it was now known that I had “abused and hurt” Verity (which was not true of course). After all, her previous actions showed that she cared for Verity very little; she was only around to use as a weapon against me.Instead, she must have been elated that I would go to prison.
That was the payback that she had been waiting for, for so long
