Betrayed mistress (Part 3)

Continuation of Karen's story...

Too late by the time I saw his true colours

When she was five months pregnant, Madam Teo told Mr Hong she needed money for the utilities and for her monthly check-ups with a gynaecologist. That was when she saw his true colours.

She claimed: “Initially, Anthony offered $1,500 a month. But the next day, he asked if I could reduce it, saying it was too much.

“I wept when I heard that. He then threw a stack of documents on the floor, saying his monthly salary was only $3,000.

“I never minded footing the bill for our meals but since I was carrying his child, he ought to make some financial contributions.”

She pointed out that besides his monthly salary, Mr Hong also had an annual allowance of $25,000.

She said: “How could he say he didn’t have enough money? His lawful family was living in a condominium at Meyer Road.”

It was too late for Madam Teo to terminate the pregnancy by then.
