The Door flew open and revealed Janet the girlfriend of Jack.
Jack was dumbfounded and dazed when Janet entered and hugged Jim.
Alfred looked up and was shocked at what he saw, when Janet sighted Jack she was taken aback by his presence
“Hello baby” said Janet nervously
Hey babe” replied Jim
“what the hell is going on here?” screamed jack.
” Janet! Did u just call my friend baby and you!” He Pointed at Jim’
” did u just call my girlfriend, my wife to be, baby?”
“Jack what do you mean by girlfriend? Janet never told me she had a boyfriend not to talk of mentioning you to me” said a confused Jim
Janet was nonchalant about the whole thing, she didn’t care if she hurt Jack, she just acted like the whole thing wasn’t her concern….
Alfred who was still stunned by the whole episode finally spoke up
“everyone calm down. Jack let’s listen to Janet’s explanation and let us know the reason for all these and Jim, you also calm down and listen to what Janet has to say”
” what I’m going to say here is that Janet is Jack’s girlfriend and they are engaged, though she has been giving Jack some excuses and attitude for the past three weeks. Little did we know she had been going out with another nigga!! but Janet honey, why will you stoop so low as to date our friend? Can you give us a proper, reasonable and satisfying explanation please?” Alfred said trying to calm the already tensed atmosphere
” well if you must all know, Jack I loved you but you are poor. You can’t take care of me and my family. Look at my mates for crying out loud, wearing the latest clothes, using good phones, wearing Brazilian hair. Can’t I enjoy those privileges too??
You claim you love me yet you can’t afford three square meal a day, you toil and trouble with Alfred to make a living yet nothing to show for it. I can’t date a broke guy, I am too beautiful for that. Jim here has promised to get married to me so there is no going back.
Since I started dating him, he has been showering me with lots and lots of gifts, money, e.t.c and I love Jim so much.
My parents are living well now and my younger ones are finally in school.
Jack you couldn’t do all those for me so I had to move on to greener pastures okay!!
I’m so sorry” Janet said while holding Jim’s hands…
Jack was so sad and heart broken but decided to put on a strong demeanor. He told Alfred he was leaving the hotel room…
No one tried to hold him back not even the girl he once loved
It was such a sad plight for Jack
“Babe, that guy is my very good friend, why didn’t you tell me you had something going on with him and the way you embarrassed him in my presence just now wasn’t right. You belittled every part of his self esteem. I can’t even look at you right now” Jim was so pissed with Janet that he left the room and went after Jack’
Meanwhile, Alfred was in deep thoughts he received a notification
