My Husband and His Mistress Kicked Me out of the House — I Thought I Lost Everything until His Grandfather Called

7 minutes, 30 seconds Read

I thought I lost everything when I caught my husband, Brian, with another woman and he kicked me out of the house. But then his grandfather, Richard, called with a plan that would change everything and teach Brian a lesson he wouldn’t forget.

I always thought my life was perfect. Brian and I had been married for ten years. No kids yet, but we were planning. We had a beautiful home, successful careers, and a busy social life. His family was rich — really rich. His grandfather, Richard, was the one who made the family fortune.

Last Monday, I came home early from a business trip. I wanted to surprise Brian with a romantic dinner. I let myself in quietly, imagining the look on his face when he saw me.

I heard noises from upstairs — strange noises. My heart started pounding. I crept up the stairs, and when I opened our bedroom door, I found Brian in bed with another woman.

“Brian!” I yelled. “What the hell is going on?”

Brian jumped out of bed, scrambling to cover himself. The woman grabbed her clothes and bolted out of the room. Brian looked at me with shock and anger.

“Stacy, what are you doing here?” he snapped.

“I live here! What do you mean, what am I doing here? Who is she?”

“It’s not what it looks like,” he mumbled, but his eyes betrayed him. He couldn’t even look at me.

“Not what it looks like? Are you kidding me? You’re in our bed with another woman!”

“Just leave, Stacy,” he said, turning cold. “This is my house. Get out.”

“Your house? Brian, we bought this house together. We built our life together!”

“No, Stacy,” he said, his voice icy. “I bought this house. My money. My house. Now get out.”

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I felt like the ground had been ripped out from under me. With tears streaming down my face, I grabbed a suitcase and started packing whatever I could find. I didn’t even know where I was going.

I ended up at my best friend Karen’s apartment. When she opened the door and saw me, she didn’t need to ask. She just hugged me.

“Stacy, come in. Tell me everything,” she said softly.

We sat on her couch, and I spilled everything, between sobs. Karen listened, holding my hand.

“Stay here as long as you need,” she said. “We’ll figure this out.”

For the next few days, I was a mess. I didn’t know what to do or where to go. I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep. I just kept thinking about Brian and that woman. How could he do this to me? How could he throw away ten years like that?

Karen tried to help. She brought me food, tried to make me laugh, but nothing worked. I felt like my whole life had fallen apart.

One night, as I lay on Karen’s couch, staring at the ceiling, I got a call. It was from Richard, Brian’s grandfather. I almost didn’t answer, but curiosity got the better of me.

“Hello?” I said, trying to keep my voice steady.

“Stacy, it’s Richard,” came the deep, familiar voice. “I heard what happened. Can we meet?”

I hesitated. “Why do you want to meet?”

“Please, just meet me. I can’t accept my grandson’s bad behavior and I think I can help you. There’s something important you need to know.”

I agreed, not sure what to expect. The next day, I met Richard at his favorite café. He was already there, sitting at an outside table with a cup of coffee. He looked up as I approached, his eyes full of concern.

“Stacy,” he said, standing up to hug me. “I’m so sorry about all this.”

“Thank you, Richard,” I said, sitting down. “I can’t believe this is happening. I thought Brian and I would be together forever, and now this. I’m devastated.”

“Brian’s an idiot,” he said bluntly. “I don’t know what he was thinking — I won’t stand for this kind of behavior. You’re family to me, Stacy. And I want to help you through this.”

“How can you help?” I asked, feeling grateful but also confused as to how Richard could help.

“First of all,” Richard said, “Brian lied to you about the house. He never paid for it. I’ve always owned it and let him stay rent-free. That just added to his wealth and arrogance.”

I was stunned. “So, he threw me out of a house that was never even his?”

“Exactly,” Richard confirmed. “And that’s why I have a plan to set things right.”

I listened as Richard laid out his plan. “Act as though you’re moving on,” he said. “I’ll pretend to agree to fund the renovations Brian asked for. He’s asked me to cover the renovation costs. I’ll convince him, rather, to take out a large loan himself, thinking I’ll cover it later.”

“Okay,” I said slowly. “And then?”

“Once the renovations are complete, we’ll reveal that the house now belongs to you,” Richard said, a hint of satisfaction in his voice. “Brian will be left with the loan and the consequences of his actions.”

I could hardly believe what I was hearing. It sounded almost too perfect. But I trusted Richard. He had never let me down before.

The plan unfolded smoothly. I started acting as though I was moving on, throwing myself into work and reconnecting with old friends. Meanwhile, Richard played his part perfectly, pretending to support Brian’s renovation plans.

Brian was ecstatic. He and his mistress started extensive renovations, completely unaware of what was coming.

Richard kept me discreetly informed of their progress. It was surreal watching from the sidelines, knowing that this house — my home — would soon be mine again.

The day finally came. The renovations were complete, and the house looked more beautiful than ever. Richard called a meeting with Brian, his mistress, and me. Brian looked smug as he showed off the renovations.

“Looks great, doesn’t it?” Brian said, his arm around his mistress. “We couldn’t have done it without you, Grandad!”

Richard cleared his throat. “Actually, Brian, there’s something you should know.”

Brian’s smile faltered. “What do you mean?”

“The house now belongs to Stacy,” Richard said calmly. “You took out the loan, and you’re responsible for it. The title has been transferred to Stacy’s name.”

Brian’s face turned pale. “What? This can’t be happening!”

“It’s happening,” Richard said. “You made your choices, son. Now you have to live with them.”

I stood there, feeling triumphant, relieved, but also sad that my marriage was over. Mostly, however, I felt strong.

Brian was left in shock, grappling with the financial ruin he now faced. He had to deal with the hefty loan himself, and his relationship with his mistress quickly fell apart under the strain.

I moved back into the beautifully renovated house. It was strange at first, being back in a place that held so many memories, both good and bad. But I knew I had a chance to start fresh.

I reconnected with old friends and refocused on my career. Richard continued to support me, offering guidance and wisdom. His plan had not only given me back my home but had also empowered me to rediscover myself.

Brian, on the other hand, faced a hard lesson. He struggled with financial hardship and the end of his relationship. He was forced to reflect on his actions and the consequences they brought.

As the days went by, I started feeling more like myself again. Stronger, more confident. I was beginning a new chapter in my life, and though the pain of Brian’s betrayal still lingered, it was overshadowed by the sense of justice and empowerment I felt.

One evening, as I stood in the living room of my reclaimed home, I looked around at the beautiful renovations. It was a symbol of my resilience, a testament to the unexpected twist of fate that Richard had orchestrated. I realized that I hadn’t lost everything — I had gained a new beginning.

With Richard’s continued support, I knew I could navigate this new chapter of my life. I was no longer defined by my marriage to Brian but by my strength and ability to overcome adversity. And as I looked out the window, I felt a sense of peace, knowing that I was ready to face whatever came next.
