On a fine beautiful day recently in the Ugbowo community of Benin City, Edo State when everybody was going about their normal business, this guy and his “babe” were having a lover’s tiff – a quarrel in the open.
Their relationship which was hitherto a “hidey hidey” affair was blown open because prior to that day, nobody around knew or could suspect the level of intimacy they were in until that day as the girl always carried herself as innocent and sinless or according to Benin slangs, what one would call “innocenti”
This quarrel resulted to beating the girl black and blue which made the girl to go the extra mile of reporting the incident to the Police and the police asking her to take pictures of herself as evidence while she was claiming that she did not do anything to the guy.
Faced with the allegations of beating her for no reason, the boy opened up to people that the said girl is his friend’s girlfriend and the friend is out of town and whenever he is out, he takes over the show because the girl confessed to him or took him into confidence that she is not sexually satisfied with her main guy (his friend) and she enjoys sex with him more than her boyfriend.
This got him thinking this morning when he saw her with a neighbor talking which did not go down well with him so he was furious. So he decided to teach her one or two lessons about moving with boys.
At this juncture, I was taken aback: that if he being an usurper could do this to a friend’s girlfriend what will the real boyfriend do to her.
I also thought to myself that he too should actually be punished for dating a friend’s girlfriend as this is not an honest act and this act should be brought to the notice of the boyfriend so as to avoid these two betrayals.
