Elizabeth had always believed in the sanctity of marriage and the excitement of starting a family. Little did she know that her husband, Jake, had ulterior motives that would shatter her world. Their story, which began with promise and joy, took a dark turn the day after their wedding when Jake insisted they start trying for a baby immediately. It wasn’t long before Elizabeth uncovered a shocking truth, thanks to a telling email notification on Jake’s laptop.

As a child, Elizabeth’s grandmother often shared wisdom about life’s unpredictable nature. “Never forget the good days, and never let the bad days get you down, Liz,” she would say, preparing Elizabeth for life’s inevitable ups and downs. However, even her grandmother couldn’t have foreseen the betrayal Elizabeth would face.

Elizabeth and Jake met at her new job, quickly becoming close friends. Their connection felt intense and genuine, leading them to marry after just six months of dating. “Liz, I think we should start trying for a baby right away,” Jake suggested urgently, only a day after their wedding.

Elizabeth was taken aback. “Are you sure? We just got married,” she responded, trying to understand his sudden urgency.

“Yes, absolutely,” Jake insisted. “There’s no better time than now. It’s the perfect way to begin our journey together.” His enthusiasm seemed genuine, but something about his tone made Elizabeth uneasy. Despite her mixed feelings, she agreed, hoping his eagerness was simply a sign of his excitement for their future together.

One afternoon, while tidying the living room, Elizabeth heard Jake’s laptop chime with a reminder. Jake was in the shower, and the persistent ping drew her attention. She wasn’t snooping; she simply glanced at the screen, where a message preview read, “Is she pregnant yet?” The sender was his ex-girlfriend, Claire.

Elizabeth’s heart sank as she read the email. “Remember our deal, Jake. You need to get her pregnant within a year. If you don’t, you won’t be able to secure your inheritance,” Claire had written. Jake’s reply was chilling: “Don’t worry, I’m on it. Everything is going according to plan.”

The emails revealed a cold, calculated plan. Jake had married Elizabeth with the sole intention of having a child to secure a substantial inheritance from a distant relative. Claire, who was infertile, was part of the plan. Once Jake secured the inheritance, he intended to divorce Elizabeth and live with Claire.
