“My Impatient Sons Were Eager for My Demise, So I Cleverly Taught Them a Lesson – Story of the Day”

Jake and his wife decided to move in with Rose after learning that his mother was ill, but it wasn’t an unselfish decision. Jake had the opportunity to show his own self, but he lacked the strength to behave morally.

Rosa had to teach him and his brother a hard lesson at that moment.

The first argument of the day was already taking place in Jake and Lucy’s apartment when the early morning light peeked through their curtains.

“Jake, how many times do we have to go over this?” Lucy was obviously frustrated. It was another hectic morning as she ran around the kitchen holding a half-finished coffee. “We’re barely making ends meet and you feel like you’re not even trying to find a solution.”

Jake was sitting at their battered kitchen table feeling down. His pitiful salary from the factory made their goal of a decent house seem out of reach. Tugging at his hair, he replied, “I’m trying, Lucy.”

His wife sat up, her anger turning to concern. But it goes beyond money.

Even though you’re here, it feels like you’re not here. Can’t you see we’re drowning,” she moaned.

His gaze met hers. “Lucy, I hear you.

We will solve it. He held her hand and confirmed, “Together.”

At that moment they were interrupted by a phone call. It was Jake’s mother, Rosa.

“I feel really bad… Please take me to the hospital.” Her voice grew louder as she pleaded, “I don’t think I can wait any longer.

“Mom, Ryan can’t make it?” Jake’s query was a wild guess; his brother was far from trustworthy.

“I tried. No response,” Rosa remarked sternly.

“Okay, Mom.” He assured her, “I’m on my way,” and hung up. Lucy’s fleeting worries about finances melted away in the face of Rosa’s illness.

Jake was in the hospital helping his obviously frail mother. When Ryan finally showed up, he was late and looking casual, which immediately infuriated everyone. Unable to suppress his indignation, he lashed out, “You’re late.”

Ryan shrugged and said, “I had some business to take care of,” making the situation worse. “What’s the big deal?”

Ryan, the main problem is that Mom is sick.

Seriously sick,” Jake blurted out, trying to control his rage in the sterile hospital corridor.

Dr. Thomas’s entrance broke up their argument and redirected attention to Rosa’s immediate requirements and treatment. The doctor described Rosa’s prescribing plan. Although the charges were exaggerated, Jake hoped the hospital would keep her longer.

“Okay,” Jake sighed. “We’ll take care of her at home.” Ryan was silent as he made all the arrangements.

However, his brother had the audacity to point out that he owned half of Rosa’s house.

“You’re just going to leave all the responsibility to me, and yet you’re worried about her house?” Jake asked.

the fact that he owned half of Rosa’s house.

“You’re just going to leave all the responsibility to me, and yet you’re worried about her house?” Jake asked.

“That’s the way things are,” Ryan commented icily before leaving his brother to tend to his mother.

Jake had to wait until his wife was even angrier with him than she had been that morning before he called to explain the problem. He said, “We have to move in with Mom for a while,” and Lucy didn’t say anything for a while.

“Okay. We can make it happen. Always,” she finally said.

Fortunately, along the way, they began to see the positive side of things. They could save a lot of money without paying rent, and if Rosa died, they would probably keep the house.

But they were not prepared for the reality of caregiving. Their actions became stiff and mechanical because everything was overwhelming. The tension in the house was building and he felt as if one of them had lost him.

It was one afternoon. Lucy had had enough after a particularly demanding day of cleaning, tending to Rosa’s many demands and managing her medication.

She nearly cried as she declared, “I can’t do this anymore.” “I never intended to work as a full-time caregiver. I think I’m going crazy here.”

Despite his own weariness, Jake tried to find solace in the solidarity. Let’s solve it together. “Consider game over,” he prompted, but Lucy pushed his comforting palm away.

She was no longer patient. “No! I’m done! Either I go or your mother leaves. This is not how I imagined our life and I’m not a maid.”

You have to determine what matters most to you.”

Jake was conflicted by this request. A little later he faced his mother and tried to hide his hopelessness. “Hi, Mom. Trying to sound positive, he asked, “How are you feeling?

What Rosa said next made him feel even more guilty. “I’m so thankful for you and Lucy and how you take care of me,” she said. Knowing that his poor, naive mother had no idea what she was thinking, Jake bowed his head quietly.

*** A few days later they traveled to a new location. Jake looked up an assisted living facility on the internet, thinking it would be his only option. On the way there he told his mother all the best. “There are experts. Maybe it’s better for you,” he exclaimed happily.

Despite his behavior, Rosa knew something was wrong. But what about Lucy and you? Having relatives around is essential, isn’t it? she asked.

Jake said, “We’ll visit often,” but he saw Lucy’s cold look from the passenger side. However, he insisted on pushing for a new place in favor of Rosa.

Jake turned to the nursing home administrator and licked his lips as he said the lie. “He has nowhere else to go,” the spokesman said. He muttered, averting his mother’s confused look, “We can’t give her the attention she needs.

Rosa whispered, “But I don’t like it here, Jake,” as she looked smaller and more exposed in the office chair. I’m ready to go home.”

He comforted her. “Mom, you’ll be fine here. It fits better. I’ll be back often, I swear.”

Jake met Dr. Thomas, who occasionally helped out at this nursing facility, after helping his mother settle into her room. When the doctor asked about Rosa’s well-being, Jake was forced to come up with an explanation.

“She’s getting better. I’m trying my best to take care of her at home with Lucy.” He looked away from the doctor’s gaze and remarked, “It’s just… the medicine, it’s more expensive than we thought.”

Jake accepted Dr. Thomas’ immediate offer of financial support because it would help everyone, but his guilt tripled.

Jake tried to encourage Lucy back to Rosa by making her a special meal, and for a while, everything seemed to be going well. But about Dr. He didn’t hear from Thomas for several hours. He found out about Jake’s lies and also that Rosa was admitted to a nursing home instead of recovering at home as he said.

After Jake stumbles upon an explanation, the doctor informs that his mother’s condition has worsened and she needs urgent medical attention.

Before playing, he was stunned for a few seconds and overcome with regret.

Okay, Dr. Thomas. He managed to reply, “I’ll meet you there,” his voice barely above a whisper. He hung up the phone and Lucy turned to him, her eyes wide with fear. He found it difficult to remain composed as he talked about Rosa’s condition.

When they visited Dr. Thomas at the hospital, he provided more information about Rosa’s condition. Locking eyes with Jake, he stated, “He needs immediate surgery.” “But we have to think about turning off life support if you can’t afford the procedure. It would allow her to die peacefully.”

Jake felt tears streaming down his face, but his thoughts were consumed by the thought of years of mounting debt once the doctor left them in Rosa’s room to talk the situation over. To cover all the costs, they might need to sell the house. What would they do then?

Lucy broke the excited silence, interrupting his disturbing thoughts.

She said quietly, “That could be a blessing in disguise.” The house will be all ours. All our problems will be solved. We will devise a strategy to get Ryan to give up his half-claim to the land.”

Terrified, Jake ends her calculated preparations and responds by suggesting they sell the property to pay for the surgery. Unfortunately, Lucy would have none of it. She was done pretending to be human.

“What happens next? Do we resume our daily struggles and worry about debts and bills? I’m going to stop living like this. It’s either the machines or I’m to blame.”

You have to make a decision,” she shouted at her husband once more.

Jake saw her reasoning, even though he knew it was wrong. Finally, he went out into the hall and informed the doctor of his choice, though it felt strange to say such things out loud.

It was obvious how disappointed Dr. Thomas was. His heavy brow furrowed as he said, “This operation could save her.” His mouth tightened as if he had more to say.

But Jake made up his mind. “Yes,” he muttered without saying anything.

***

About a month after their mother’s death, Jake, Lucy, and Ryan meet to discuss Rosa’s estate in a tense law office. They just said a quick hello. Everyone wanted it to end as soon as possible.

Naturally, Jake and Lucy wanted the house, with taking care of Rosa giving them full ownership rights. His wife silently but firmly agreed, “It was us at her side,” he said, avoiding eye contact.

“That’s generous of you two to say that. You haven’t been as present as you say, and I can prove it. Ryan sneered, “I deserve my fair share.

The lawyer stepped in and said, “Please, let’s be nice. Let’s talk about this in peace when you sit down.” Everyone in the room gasped as he began to read the will: Rosa had bequeathed the house and all her possessions to charities.

“It can not be true!” Lucy argued.

Jake said, “You must be wrong.”

“Show us again!” Ryan yelled.

The lawyer did not hesitate. “Charity was Rosa’s preferred use of her wealth. In her own words, it’s all here.”

But suddenly the woman in question entered the room, causing gasps and screams. “Mom! Are you…are you okay?” Jake yelled, knocking over his chair as he hurried to get up.

“I never had any illness. It was all a test that you failed completely,” Rosa revealed.

“But Mom, we…we were just worried about you,” Jake stammered. The older woman recognized the truth even when others tried to say similar things.

Rosa rejected their justification, expressing her displeasure and her final decision to refuse them anything.

“Don’t try to explain anything.

This is it. The lawyer promptly terminated them all as soon as she left the office.

Ryan was out blaming his brother for anything. “This is all your fault!” What was worse, Lucy agreed with him.

“Jake, you do realize Ryan’s right. You’re a total nut.” She coldly remarked, “It’s unbelievable that I’ve wasted so much time with you,” and turned to leave.

When Jake collapsed on the stairs to the law office, he knew he had lost everything, even his moral compass.

He may try to put the blame on Ryan or Lucy, but in the end, he was the one who made the decision.

He had made the wrong decision because of his weakness and now he had to deal with the consequences alone – alone.
