I'm not surprised PAM, that the "friend" you replaced me with is one of the most despicable cheaters I've ever heard of and you went and told me every sordid detail so you could feel superior to her. I wonder who you told all my confidences to. Oh and by the way, everyone is betting you will cheat on your husband because youre bored. I hope he throws your ass out because you don't deserve his love.

At first Minerva is very angry with her father. But then she found out why her father did what he did even though is was by choice not a mistake.
