Woman Couldn’t Wait to Meet Daughter’s Boyfriend, Turns Pale When She Recognizes Him at Thanksgiving Dinner

Picture this: I’m a 55-year-old surgeon and a mom of four. My only unmarried daughter had been raving about Jason — tall, handsome, a surgeon who made her feel happy. The excitement was palpable as my husband and I finally invited him for dinner on Thanksgiving Day.

But oh boy, the minute I laid eyes on him, my world took a nosedive. I knew him. Jason turned out to be the man I had had an affair with ten years ago when he was my intern. It wasn’t an infidelity, but let’s talk about this later.

Throughout the dinner, he wore a knowing smile, openly flirting as if our shared history was a secret only he and I knew. The tension in the room was palpable, but I kept my composure, smiling through the discomfort.

When they left, a chilling message arrived on my phone:

“Such a coincidence, huh?”

Coincidence, my foot. Our affair didn’t end well. Ten years ago, he broke medical protocol, and I had to fire him. He left seething, swearing revenge. Fast forward to now, and he was making good on that promise.

Now, I pleaded with him to keep silent, not wanting my daughter to bear the brunt of our past. But Jason had other plans. He bombarded me with texts, mocking my worries and hinting at exposing our secrets. He started sending our old pictures, pushing me into a corner.

He waited for me in a car near my job, just for me to see him and be scared.

I had no choice but to confess to my daughter. I was so afraid of destroying our relationship because of this, but did this.

“How could you, mom?! With him? What about dad?” she asked fiercely.

“Sweety, I regret it until this day. Jason really turned out to be a scoundrel. However, at the time, your dad…you all didn’t know, but we were on a break for half a year.” Only after this did my daughter cool down a bit. She understood the situation and saw my side of the story.

Nonetheless, she was still furious about the whole situation, and in an attempt to clear the air, she invited Jason to a cafe. Little did he know I would be there, too.

With a stern face, she confronted him, saying, “Finally, Jason, I know what kind of person you’re. We’re done. Leave me and my family alone.”

“Not so fast. Your mom owes me a job and my reputation”, he said. Jason started blackmailing me and said that I had to make up for what he had lost.

When he was done, I showed him that I recorded the entire conversation. I sharply changed my tone from pleading with him to keep our secret in messages to a steel one:

“Stop it, Jason. This is it. I can ruin your medical reputation in one click. Be thankful I didn’t reveal ALL your sins to the commission 10 years ago.”

His confident demeanor crumbled, replaced by a pale, quiet, and pathetic version of himself.

He started begging me not to send it anywhere, promising to leave us. Finally, we were free to go. As we were leaving, he mumbled something like, “I was so close, I was so close.”

For me, it was a victory. I had managed to save my relationship with my daughter and keep her safe from this manipulative man.

An attempt to destroy others can ultimately lead to your own downfall. In the end, I walked away with the satisfaction of protecting my family from the clutches of someone who sought revenge.
