Yesterday, my friend Charles (not real name), his girlfriend Janet (not real name) and I were heading home from church, when suddenly Janet, asked Charles to handover his phone to her. Charles gave her the phone, Charles and I did not suspect or expect any foul play because that's not the first time she will hold the phone and a girlfriend has the right to see or holds her boyfriend phone ( my opinion).
But when the phone was handed over to her , she immediately opened the phone, remove the battery, sim card and the SD card, then put back the battery without putting back the sim and the SD card. I personally was confused, I don't know about my friend but I think he was more confused than I was.
When my friend asked her the reason for that, she said nothing, we were all mute, we trekked a distance when the most surprising and the most shocking thing happened.
When we got to the edge of a bridge, we stood and were waiting for bike. Janet walked past us and threw the phone into the river. I was like "is she mad?", what did she find in the phone that got her so furious and if she found anything that upset her was this the right action to take?
Charles, asked her in a calm voice "why?" she respond in aggressive manner "don't ask me any stupid question" the anger was burning in me, I feelt like devouring the girl or tear her to pieces, how can she do that to my friend now that phones are costly? many things ran through my mind.
I looked at my friend, he said "lets go", I replied "what?" he said "let's go". I said to him "we can't just live her, lets treat this girls fuck up", he said no. "I always said I'm the last guy that will raise my hand on a lady and Janet is not just a lady but my girlfriend and my lover, so I can't, everything happened for a reason " Charles said to me.
As we were about to live, Janet called us back, hugged my friend kissed him. And I was even more confused. She Then opened up that it was all a test, to know if Charles will beat or embarrass her, But she now sees my friend is a good person who loves and respects her.
Immediately, she opened her laptop bag and brought out a brand new Infinix zero and handed it over to my friend, the phone is better than the phone she threw away.
She said even if my friend had beaten her up or threatened her, she would still have given him the phone but that will be the end of their relationship.
So people, if you were in Charles shoes, will you act like he did?
