The fourth child
A man was living happily with a beautiful wife and 4 healthy children, 2 boys, and 2 girls. But the always had a feeling that his wife was cheating on him, and that the last child was not his real son.
One day, the man got seriously sick. In the last days of life, the man asked his wife:
- Baby, before death, I want to know the truth, and I’m willing to forgive you. Is John really my son?
The wife replied calmly
- Of course he is your son. I swear!
The man looked happy and took one last breath, while his wife thought in relief:
- Luckily he didn’t ask me about the other three…
