He hugged his loved one close, their baby rested on her chest.

The newborn sleeping.

He watched his baby open her eyes as she looked at her mother and father.

"I'm sorry..." he whispered, "I'm sorry I won't be there for you."

She didn't understand.

He kissed his child, let go of her mother, turned and left.

He had to go back to his own family.

His mistress was in tears. The only thing consoling her was the money he had given.

To keep the affair silent.

His baby girl never knowing the father who had left them... left her.
