blackmail

he’s been with her for 4 years, having knocked her up the first night they did the deed & she had 2 kids by 2 other fathers prior to that hot & steamy moment, some time after work where they had met each other--- and the father of the second daughter was still stalking her & they thought the kid might be his & a whole load of drama ensued. when the dust cleared, the kid was that of the new acquaintance & what followed was a traditional father staying with his kid, even though love had not entered the arena yet. he was 10 years younger & unappreciative of her, cheating on her early & never telling her, then sliding it into conversation, later, when he thought the coast was clear. father has a daughter but he wants a son--- he wants a son from the same mother & yet she does not want to go through the whole bottle & diaper routine one more time--- so, he decides to withhold sex from her & she is in her prime--- he decides to withhold sex & gets her two daughters from the other fathers walk around the house day in & day out commenting on how they want a brother, as if to influence their mother who does not want this--- but she feels that if she doesn’t give him what he wants, that the problems evident in their relationship will not stop, not to mention the fact that they may never have sex again. she sacrifices herself, giving up her own wants & needs to make him happy (as if another kid is some kind of magical antidote), fully aware that she may not even have a son (so does that mean she is supposed to keep on popping them out until she does?)--- she is being blackmailed.
