One of my closest friends went for further studies abroad two years ago and only returned home a few months ago. While he was away, I met his wife in some not-so-good places with a former school mate of mine, who in one unguarded moment, confessed to me that he was ploughing my friend’s heifer. Obviously, she was not too comfortable that her lover was an acquaintance of mine. I have a story and a half to tell about her while my friend was away. I know she aborted a couple of times; the last one took place a few weeks before my friend’s return from abroad, for which she nearly died. I also know that she was once assaulted by the wife of my former school mate. To cap such a bad story with more scandal, she once called me and offered to do anything for me, so long as I didn’t tell my friend that she had been fooling around. Big Man, I am a man of flesh and blood and I am prone to temptations—but I also value friendship. Do you think I should tell my friend about her actions while he was away?

Unless you are certain that your friend was celibate when he was abroad for his studies—which is impossible—you have no right telling on her. You are a very crafty individual who has conveniently omitted to tell us what your chum told you about his adventures abroad. A few years ago, I went abroad for a month and, I must confess, I was as faithful as a cock among hens (pun intended). Now, can you imagine how faithful a man would be when he has been removed from his home, flung among strangers with no social support system for two years? As far I am concerned, these people were temporarily divorced; what one did with other people should be of no concern to the other.
Besides, what will you be telling your friend? That her goods were being munched by another of your friends and that you were also offered but you politely declined? C’mon man, don’t be naive, be serious for once!
