Man Finds Out Girlfriend Is Long Lost Daughter After DNA Test


Terrible News

Two months had passed since he first met her. According to him, it had been some of the most enjoyable times of his life. He felt her hand squeeze his as she walked into the room.

When he saw the tears that fell from her lashes, it made him unable to look at her. While looking at her, he couldn’t help but break down in tears. Having opened her mouth to speak, the doctor said some words that made him feel like his life was slipping away.

Chester married the love of his life, Mindy, at the age of twenty-five. He had a massive crush on her in high school, but who didn’t? She was a cheerleader and also one of the most beautiful women he’s ever seen.

Chester left the town to go to college, but Mindy stayed behind to pursue her nursing degree. He went home over the Christmas holidays, and his parents shared with him that she was his grandfather’s caretaker.

There was chemistry between Chester and Mindy ever since high school. Seeing her after years and without the constraints of high school rekindled a dormant spark that erupted into a raging pillar of flames.

Chester asked Mindy to be his girlfriend and, after a few months of dating, asked her to be his wife. The pair got married on a beautiful beach in North Carolina. However, what had been a blissful married existence gradually descended into pandemonium.

Chester still loved Mindy more than anything, but he could no longer deny that there was trouble in paradise. Things started going wrong the moment Chris had to leave the country for his job.

One of his close friends informed him that his wife was not abiding by their vows. When Chester returned home, he questioned Mindy, resulting in a series of conflicts that resulted in a bitter divorce.

Chester did not feel like himself after their divorce. He still managed to flourish in his career, he wasn’t doing so well in his romantic and personal areas.

Chester loved Mindy with every fiber of his being. He was stunned that she could so easily throw everything away. He believed that things would improve with time, but he was wrong. However, the moment he met Ana, everything changed.

Chester was fifty years old when he met Ana. It had been more than two decades since his divorce. He was completely recovered from the anguish that the marriage had brought him, even though he didn’t realize it.

With Ana, everything was different. There was no denying that Mindy and Chester had insane physical attraction but with Ana, things moved slower, and he savored every second of it.

Chester met Ana at a work convention. She couldn’t be a day older than twenty-five, but Chester was immediately drawn by the way she carried herself.

Chester had never seen somebody dressed so smartly, with such a blend of elegance, sophistication, and presence. Chester realized he needed to ask her out for lunch as the convention came to a conclusion.

The next month flew by. Chester and Ana had been on numerous dates. Chester was drawn by how adventurous Ana was, and she introduced him to a lot of new restaurants and hidden gems in their city.

Despite the fact that everything between them was wonderful, Chester was concerned about a critical aspect of their developing relationship.

Chester and Ana barely spent a second apart and it concerned him that the only romantic thing they had done was share a hug and occasionally hold hands.

Chester was reminded of how he hurried things with Mindy twenty years ago, and he wanted to do things differently with Ana. But then, as he was driving to visit her for their next date, calamity happened.

Chester had been deep in contemplation, attempting to come up with a way to communicate to Ana why he was being so guarded with her.

He didn’t notice the vehicle speeding toward him at the intersection. Blood was streaming from his face and a bone protruding from his left forearm as he awoke on the chilly tarmac.

The Hospital

Chester woke up in the hospital with a teary Ana by his side the following day. A doctor stood above him, a metallic board in hand and a solemn look on her face.

The doctor explained everything that happened, detailing that Chester had been involved in a gruesome accident, and if it weren’t for Ana, he wouldn’t be awake that morning. But she also revealed something else that made Chester’s lips part

“You lost a lot of blood, Mr. Reginald,” the doctor began. “The hospital has been in dire shortage of blood, so we needed a donor.” Her eyes flitted over to Ana, “She called your phone as the EMTs brought you in, and we informed her of your situation. 

When she heard you needed blood, she volunteered immediately.” Her eyes turned away, and as if forcing herself to speak, she added, “While we were doing some preliminary compatibility tests on both your blood, we discovered something

A Heartbreaking Discovery

Coming closer with her board in hand, the doctor said, “We found remarkable resemblances in your blood. And when we ran a DNA test, we discovered you two are related.” 

She presented her board, and though her lips continued moving, Chester couldn’t hear anything. His ears buzzed, and his eyes stung. They were related. How? 

An Only Child


Chester had been an only child. He also knew and was pretty close to all his nieces and nephews. Whatever the doctor was telling him was either factually wrong, or she was pulling some sick prank.

But as Chester pondered the situation, trying to figure out what was happening, he realized something that made his mind pause

What If 


The doctor said Chester and Ana were related. She didn’t specify how. What if Chester was interacting with his little sister or cousin? 

He knew his parents well, but that didn’t mean they didn’t have secrets that they kept from him. But Ana was too young to fit the description in his mind. He quickly scrapped that idea from his mind. 

A Difficult Time


Ana sat before him, her teary eyes avoiding his. Chester tried to sit up and failed. Was Ana one of his nieces that he didn’t know about?

He was about to speak when she shook her head at him. She asked the doctor to give them some privacy, insisting that she needed to tell Chester everything by herself. With a curt nod, the doctor vacated the room.

How Do You Feel?


Ana took a deep breath before her trembling lips curled. “How do you feel?” she asked in a small voice. There was worry in her tone. 

“I’ve felt worse,” Chester answered lowly. There was a pain in his throat when he talked, a scratchy, uncomfortable agony that made him wish he had no throat, to begin with. But he wouldn’t let it stop him from understanding what was happening. “What did the doctor mean?” he asked.

Don’t Hold The Tears Back


Ana stood up, inhaling as she’d done after the doctor left. She tried to smile again. “Wow,” she said, wiping her eyes with the pads of her forefingers.

“The results say you’re my dad.” Her voice broke as she detailed the report. She wiped her eyes again, her tears flowing freely. “I don’t understand it. Not any of it.

A Freight Train


The news hit Chester like a freight train, and he spent the next few minutes reeling from it. He tried to formulate words, but his mind wouldn’t work. His tongue was thick and immovable, and his vocal cords were unresponsive. 

He was still gathering his wits when memories barraged him. He remembered his past, and all the confusion within suddenly turned into anger.

Fate Can Be Cruel


“Your dad?” Chester stammered. He remembered how twenty years past, he’d found someone he believed he loved. He’d given her everything only for fate to declare them incompatible. 

After two whole decades, he was finally in a place where he could put himself out there again. Against his expectations, he’d found someone that made him feel alive again. Now fate was here to repeat history.

Make It Make Sense 


“I know how it sounds,” Ana said as she sat back down. “I have spent the entire morning trying to make sense of everything.” She wiped her eyes as her other hand squeezed Chester’s fingers as she’d done when the doctor started talking.

“I talked to my mom about it,” she said. “Not directly. I just asked a few questions and filled in the rest.” Her speaking gave Chester the impression that she’d figured out everything herself.

Her Mom


When Ana and Chester were together, Ana shared that a single parent raised her. She always talked about her mom as her rock, a woman who had been thrashed over and over by life but had emerged on top. 

She described her mom as having a complicated past, a time that still held power over her. As Chester looked at her now, something clicked.

Her Mom’s Past 


Ana had once revealed that her mom had been married once. The marriage didn’t last long, ending in a very bad divorce. She described the time after the divorce as the worst for her mom, who was still recovering. 

“I am a product of an unfruitful bond,” Ana had once said. Everything she’d ever said now made sense to Chester. Ana was Mindy’s daughter.

The Confirmation 


As Chester tried to make sense of everything, he realized he’d never asked Ana about her mom’s name. “Is your mom’s name Mindy?” he croaked, and Ana sobbed.

Chester’s heart sank. That was the only confirmation he needed. He watched as Ana cried. He couldn’t even comfort her, emotions banged against each other within him, and the pain from his accident kept him rooted. He didn’t know that the most challenging part of this disaster was yet to come.

A Father, Not A Lover


Through grueling chest and neck pains, Chester sat up and hugged Ana. He held her tight, not as a lover but as a dad seeing his daughter through a difficult time. 

But as he held her, letting her sob over his shoulder, he realized one thing he’d failed to acknowledge from the beginning of their time together: it would save them from the barrage of heartache waiting to fall on them. 

How He Feels


Throughout their interactions, the bond between Chester and Ana had been strong. But it hadn’t been romantic. 

Looking at her now, it made sense why he was stalling their physical relationship. Something within him had struck a fondness for Ana. But it wouldn’t let him view her through a romantic lens. Hugging her now, he smiled, thankful that he’d listened. But did Ana feel the same

Her Side Of Things


Afraid of what she felt, Chester pulled out of the hug and asked her what was on her mind. She replied that in all her life, she’d always wondered what her dad was like. 

She would never have guessed that she would go on dates with him, know him as a person, and love spending time with him. But was she romantically attached.

She Opens Up


Ana confessed that in their time together, what she felt for Chester was a strong bond that transcended the romantic level. She’d tried to think of him as a romantic partner many times, but it didn’t seem to work.

She was glad he didn’t put any pressure on her because despite liking him very much, she didn’t want anything romantic with him. And now to find out they were father and daughter.

The Future

Watching her speak and seeing her tears dry as her chirpy, happy, and arresting self came to the fore made Chester smile. Ana was so much like Mindy. But her heart and mind were even more intriguing.

A daughter, he sighed. He squeezed Ana’s hand and struggled down until he kissed it. Although he didn’t hate Mindy anymore, he wished she hadn’t hidden this from him. Would she be open to meeting him and perhaps talking things over?

It Makes Us Stronger

Chester asked Ana if she could organize a meet-up between him and Mindy. After a few weeks of physical therapy, he joined Ana at a restaurant where they met Mindy. 

She was changed, livelier than she was when they divorced. She seemed happier too, and Chester was glad for her. He didn’t scold her for hiding Ana from him, only thanked her for raising her well. Now the three meet weekly, with Chester and Mindy enjoying their time as friends who went through a dark past but came out stronger.
