every family has secrets.
some are secrets they want no one else to know, so they stay in the family.
i am going to tell you guys one i just found out today, and it was so mindblowing for me because of what happened.
so i have an aunt, who shall remain nameless here because i don't want to risk one of you all knowing her or knowing me and telling her or the family that i was on here being a gossipy bitch. but its my rant book and i share what i want. lets pretend her name is mary (its not). aunt mary has two kids; michael and samantha (also made up names).
that's not really the point of this.
the reason for bringing up her kids is that neither michael nor samantha have a father. as long as i have known them, there has never been a father figure in their lives, except for their uncle steven (bc he shares his apartment with aunt mary and their mother. steve and mary are siblings). so michael is about twenty five, sam is about eleven and sees uncle steve as her father). uncle steve is gay and he is fab btw. he's my godfather and always gives me the best presents at christmas time. okay, i went off on a brief tangent.
so my mum and i started talking about michael for some reason, and his mum.
and my mom told me, "you don't know the story about them, do you?"
and i said no. BUT IN MY MIND I WAS HOPING SHE WOULD TELL ME BC I'VE ALWAYS BEEN CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT THE DEAL ABOUT THEM IS.
my mom told me:
apparently when aunt mary still lived in mexico, they lived in michoacan. my grandmother had a house and mary lived with her, she was about nineteen years old, almost twenty. their neighbors were my aunt connie (made up name), who was mary's sister. she was already married, with children, and owned a small business.
everyday, aunt connie and my grandma would go into town for a walk. at first aunt mary would join them. but then suddenly she stopped. granny and aunt connie didn't question it.
fifteen, almost sixteen year old carlos (made up name) also stayed at home.
so apparently one day aunt mary became pregnant and she confessed to her mother that the baby was carlos'. so aunt connie and grandma found out there that while they went for a walk, aunt mary was at home, FUCKING HER OWN NEPHEW. what the fuck.
grandma was ashamed. aunt connie was furious bc aunt mary was nineteen, while her son was only fifteen.
they tried to have the baby aborted, but by the time aunt mary told anyone she was pregnant, it was too late. grandma didn't want anyone else in the pueblo to know what happened, but it was inevitable. so as soon as the child was born, they moved to usa.
but yeah...my cousin mike is related to me through both his parents and that's super disturbing.
and aunt mary didn't stop there.
once in the usa, she started working at a fish packing plant where she apparently met a handsome salvadorian fella. she did not give two flying fucks that he was married. she got it on with him and sam was born. and she never really saw that guy again after sam was born. but damn, aunt mary, no offense, but keep it in ur panties.
so the secret is like so well kept that only my dad, his siblings (14 siblings), my grandma, a few of the wives married into the fam (like my mum), and now i know.
i thought mike just didnt have a dad, like sam.
but he does. and his dad is apparently my cousin.
DONT TELL ANYONE I TOLD U THIS. lol
