It was my 18th birthday, my dad and I decided to get these DNA kits. You know, the ones that everybody is getting so crazy about. We thought it would be cool to see our backgrounds, maybe some rich ancestors or some long lost grand grandmother in Europe. Who knows.
I was really excited to get the results, but as soon as I opened it…I was confused. That was not at all what I expected. It basically said that my dad and I only shared about 30% of our DNA. I mean, I looked just like him - the curly hair, hazel eyes. Even my grandma would say that I’m pretty much a younger version of him. I figured there was some kind of bug on the site, or maybe that the test was just a total rip off and I had wasted all my birthday money on buying the stupid kit. I knew my cousin did this test, so I called her immediately. We checked both results and it said that were most likely brother and sister. Yeah, it had to be a scam. We ranted to each other about spending so much money on something so ridiculous.
I wondered if anyone else had the same issue and went online, looking at reviews and feedback for the test… But everyone was saying that the results were accurate. I was sitting in my room, trying to process it all. I mean, there was no way my dad and I could only share that much DNA. I remembered all the precious moments we spent together – how he taught me to play basketball and cheered me on in every competition. Then I heard my mom downstairs in the kitchen and it hit me. She must have been lying to both of us!
I stormed downstairs with anger boiling up in me. I didn’t even sugar coat it. “Did you cheat on dad?” I’ve never seen her so scared. “What kind of question is that?” She was whispering, mumbling even. “Well, answer the question. Did you cheat on dad? Is he my father or not?” You know, since my mother was a business woman, she never really showed emotion – but at that point, she looked ready to fall apart. Her cheeks went all red and she started to panic, stuttering out a response. “Why… Why are you asking me this?” I told her about the DNA test, results, everything. For a moment there, I thought – maybe I’m crazy? Maybe it’s just a misunderstanding? But then mom started to cry. She buried her face in her hands and fell to the floor, sobbing. She started begging me “Don’t tell your dad. Please, please, just don’t tell your dad.”
My hands started shaking as I realized what had just happened. The truth had come out, but I wasn’t really ready to handle it. Reality hit me like a ton of bricks. I glared at my mother before taking off to my bedroom, kicking every piece of furniture I could find.
I was sitting in my room, furious. I heard my dad come home and I could hear him asking my mother what was wrong, but she didn’t say a single word. He came into my room, asking me what the hell happened, wondering why mom was crying on the kitchen floor. I told him the truth, I couldn’t lie to him. “The test told me that you’re not my dad”. I felt heartbroken. The look on my dad’s face… I had never seen anyone look so in pain. He went silent, nodded and left the room without saying a word.
