Kelechi and Ijay are two of my closest friends. KC is my best childhood friend up until he left nigeria after secondary school and I met Ijay in university and we've been tight ever since. KC moved back to Nigeria in 2012 and got a job in Abuja and he's been there since then. Last year Ijay and I took a girls trip with our other girlfriends to Abuja and she and KC met for the first time and they really hit it off. It was clear that KC was smitten and Ijay liked him too. After we came back to Lagos they continued to talk on the phone and weeks later Ijay told me that they had decided to start a relationship and KC confirmed it. Ever since then they see each other at least once every month, either she goes to abuja or he comes to Lagos. KC confided in me that he wants to propose to her on Christmas day and has charged me with the job of planning a surprise wedding proposal. He said he will send me the money I need once I've come up with a good plan. He has told his family and everybody agrees that Easter 2018 will be perfect for the trad and hopefully a June white wedding thereafter.
I love Ijay, I'm actually closer to her than my own sisters, I should be over the moon because I know that she wants to settle down ASAP, but I'm not because things are not exactly how KC thinks that they are. You see, Ijay loves KC but she's not exactly a "virtuous woman". She has never exactly been faithful to KC, I know that she's slept with a couple of other guys during the course of their relationship, a few times she has made me lie to him for her, which I had to do because she's my friend. She also doesn't consider runs as cheating because she says it's purely transactional, so when she sleeps with an older guy for money or some benefit, it does not count as her being unfaithful. I have talked to her severally because KC is such a good guy, he worships her like kilode, and he doesn't deserve it. But I have always minded my own business until now that KC told me he wants to marry her and asked me to plan the proposal. Now I don't know what to do. My boyfriend says I should come clean with KC (for many reasons I cannot even start to mention) I'm tempted to because I love KC a lot, not only is he my oldest friend, he's also one of my closest friends and has been there for me through thick and thin. But I also love Ijay, she truly has a good heart and is my best friend. She's the first daughter in her family and the pressure has been a lot on her for many years now and she's 31. But most importantly, I know that she loves him with her whole heart. Confused is an understatement right now, what would you do if you're me?
