AUBREY LLOYD: Heir Today…

Yemi dropped to the floor, clutching the white paper in his hand.

The results of the DNA test stung his eyes. His status had changed from an illegitimate child to a common stranger. For 35 years, his mother had lied.

The hefty inheritance from his late “father” no longer existed.


Aubrey is an idealist with a fondness for writing and all things culture. She sporadically has vivid dreams about her unpublished books being on the New York Times best sellers list.

  1. How can 50 words be so evocative? I, too, have poignant memories of moving from one home to another. Ms. Mathews’ fifty words spoke volumes. Absolutely beautiful — and so very moving! (Notice the play on words?:-) Please write more, Ms. Mathews!

  2. Probably happens to so called ‘legitimate’ children as well. Imagine if there was mandatory paternity testing for all kids. Nice!
