CASE 16 – MY BROTHER IS MAKING ME LIE TO HIS GIRLFRIEND (BSS)
“I don’t think so. Though, it’s a common story,” Toya said. “Remember when we are small and one small boy will come and say, my uncle, said I should call you.”
Abigail laughed. “I thought that happened only to village girls.”
“I even had a boy come to me on behalf of his friend.” Sybil laughed. “I was like, for real? He cannot talk for himself?”
Toya snickered. “That is so funny. Friend ke?”
“The bad part is that I had been having a crush on the silly boy, so when he came, I was happy. Only for him to say he was asking for a friend.” Sybil rolled her eyes. “Chei!”
“Ewooo! You should have just told him you like him too,” Abigail said.
“Ah, I was a hot chick on the street o.” Sybil sniffed. “Wanted by all the boys except that clown.”
“I think he liked you too, and was hiding behind his friend,” Toya said.
Sybil smiled. “Shey, little coward.”
“I’ll read what we have here,” Toya said.
Dear BSS Crew, my name is BB and my brother’s name is DB. He’s currently married, though separated from his wife. The wife has been trying to get back to him though my brother says he’s done – he doesn’t want the wife anymore. Even her family has tried to intervene. I think she cheated on him. Anyway, DB started dating this really nice and beautiful girl in my office. This girl is really cool. She’s respectful, hardworking, and very pretty. My brother said he fell for her the first time he saw her.
Recently, he proposed to her, but she wants to take things easy. And now she’s also asking me questions about my brother. DB had warned me not to let her know he’s still married. The divorce papers have not even been filed as my parents also asked him to slow down, families are still talking about the marriage.
The girl has asked me if my brother is hiding anything from her and I said no. She’s my very good office friend and I feel rotten to lie but I don’t know what else to do. I feel my Pinocchio nose will get longer and the girl will find out I am lying and detest me.
“I will detest you, definitely, but my allegiance is to my brother.”
“It’s not fair he’s making her lie.”
“Why not just tell the girl he’s separated?”
“If the girl is as hot as BB says, she probably made it clear she doesn’t want to marry a divorcee.”
“Better tell the truth. Than for her to find out.”
“You’re right. But what does BB do? She’s now in the middle.”
“I don’t think she has any issues. She should call her brother and make it clear she’s going to tell. Either he tells her himself or she does.”
“How would she do that? His relationship is none of her business.”
“But it is. As soon as the brother said, don’t tell, and the lady said tell me about your brother…”
“I’ll just say I don’t involve myself.”
“Easier said than done.”
“Is he older or younger?”
“This is really not difficult. BB needs to tell DB the game is over. Let him know she’s going to tell the lady he is still married, and his wife doesn’t want to give him a divorce.”
“Easier said than done.”
“You keep saying that.”
“Because I know! You think DB will start begging BB not to talk? He will manipulate her, threaten her. And from this post, she seems to either fear him or really very protective.”
“So, what’s our verdict?”
“She needs to keep the pretense.”
“She should confide in someone who can talk to DB.”
“Can work, possibly. But we don’t know if DB is generally a bully.”
“I’ll just tell the girl the truth. Damn the consequences.”
“I don’t even know what to think again. To tell or not to tell? Sai!”
“I will err on the side of truth. BB should tell DB she’s going to spill the beans the next time the girl asks her. If DB doesn’t tell her.”
“Sounds simple but it’s e…”
“Zier said than done. That’s the verdict, biko. Let’s pray.”
