CASE 18 – TWO BROTHERS IN LOVE WITH ME, WHAT DO I DO? (BSS)
“Tell both off, are you for real?” Abigail rolled her eyes.
Sybil smiled. “Remember one old Brad Pitt movie where the girl went through all three brothers?”
“Legends of the fall,” Toya said.
Sybil gasped. “How did you know it?”
“I just googled it, lol,” Toya said. “I watched it a while back.”
“Yeah, it was popular at a time,” Sybil said.
“I was way over my head watching all Brad Pitt movies.” Toya laughed. “Then I saw too young to die or so and stopped. I hate the movie.”
“I haven’t seen that one,” Sybil said.
Toya snickered. “You’re not missing anything. He was awful.”
“Awful acting or the movie itself?” Sybil said.
“As you ladies can guess, on the farm, we watch our animals for recreation, not American movies,” Abigail said.
Sybil laughed. “You’re funny.”
“She is,” Toya said. “So, what’s this sister saying about two brothers?”
Dear BSS Crew. My name is MD and I grew up in a middle-class neighborhood. Most of the families were well-to-do and knew one another. Growing up we had Christmas parties, Easter picnics and so on. As we all started leaving home to pursue our dreams, it became even more fun when we all come back home in December.
Well, last December, as usual, I came home with my siblings and there was a wedding in the community, and we all attended with my parents. There was this family, way back when we were growing up, were almost the richest and they had three sons. At the wedding, two were in attendance. I must confess that I had a huge crush on the older brother for years but after I graduated and left home, I didn’t know much about him again.
Well, he came to sit on the table with me and my siblings. From one thing to the other, he asked me out. We went on a date and I really enjoyed myself. I was going to be home for just two weeks, and he wanted us to see every day, and we did. When I got back to my base, I got a call from his younger brother who said he found my number on his brother’s phone and knows we two did some stuff together but he really liked me and wanted to get to know me better.
I told him immediately that I was in a relationship with his brother and had no intention of doing anything with him. To cut a long story short, I am currently talking to both brothers. Thankfully, we don’t live in the same town. The younger one is really sweet and funny, and the older is the one I started with. What do I do?
“Hian, I thought it was even more complicated,” Abigail said. “Like maybe she didn’t know they were brothers.”
“Oya, you are the one with experience, what should she do?”
“What kind nonsense experience? I wasn’t dating two brothers at the same time!”
“Don’t mind her, jare. Experience ko! How does it even relate?”
“Leave her, she wants to yab!”
“So, what does this our sister do? I mean, she should choose one straight up.”
“Easier said than done. Obviously, she got carried away with these two boys from a rich family wanting her.”
“But the older went first. She should stick with him.”
“Probably when they both know what she’s doing, they’ll break up with her.”
“The younger knows already. He is the culprit. I can imagine him laughing at their backs. Knowing the confusion he’s putting between his brother and the babe.”
“Unless he’s really in love with her and fighting his own urge and feelings.”
“Could that be why he didn’t go for her during the holidays?”
“You know how brothers behave. Anyone generally. Maybe his biggie had been talking about her and he didn’t know how to go for her.”
“Or probably he was fighting his feelings and hoping his attraction would fade.”
“Or maybe we are giving him too much credit. Maybe he’s a mischievous person.”
“Well, she has to take a decision.”
“I think she should go for the younger brother.”
“Why? The older went first and she agreed.”
“She should toss both of them. It’s nonsense. What if it’s a test?”
“Why would they test her?”
“Who knows why men do what men do?”
“Well, what’s our verdict?”
“She should follow her heart. But she must decide immediately.”
“Very correct. She alone knows how the younger got under her skin.”
“And if she’s a player, she won’t get away with it so she should be serious.”
“I think she knows what to do. She just wants to hear from us.”
BSS Crew is taking a break for Abigail to have a baby! Catch you all later…
