In the evening Charles came over to my house,i was happy to see him because i was planning to see him.
I told him what i have heard and he affirmed.
"My dad too came home fuming,he said your dad came to embarrass him in his shop yesterday to pay him the money my dad owed him"Charles replied.
"Charley what can we do now"I asked.
"Virtually nothing Mike,we shouldnt let our parent rift to drift away our frienship"
"Thats true but i am worried something bad will happen"
"Nothing will happen"Charles replied"you and fear are like five and six"he added and we laughed.
We switched on the video game and started playing.
About fourty five minutes later,my sister Julian came into my room.
"Michael,dinner is ready"she said and turned to Charles"How are you Charley"she asked.
"Fine"Charles replied with his eyes still glued to the screen.we were playing soccer and i was leading 3-nil.
She turned to me again"Michael,come and eat before it gets cold"
"Ok I will"i snapped.
"Charley you can come over too"she replied and left.

Some weeks later dad came home happily.We all noticed his good countenance and we wondered if he had won a lottery.
"I arrested Chima today,he is with the police"He told mum after eating.
My throat went down my stomach as it churned like i had swallowed hot yams.
"But why"Mum was unimpressed and dissappointed"so because of twenty million,you chose to hurt your friend"She added.
Dad was not even moved.
"Yes i did.I dont pluck my money from trees.He will remain there till he pays every single dime he owed me"dad said wriggling his tongue,he was trying to get rid of the stuck meat in his teeth.
"Dont say i did not warn you Clement,this is just bad"mum said and left him alone.
I frozed.But why was dad doing this?is it because of twenty million that cannot even buy two of our cars or reach the amount dad usually send home every august for new yam festival.
I got up silently and made to move out of the sitting room when his voice stopped me.
"Michael,i dont want to ever see you with charles,did you hear me"
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by enirock(m): 1:25am On Jul 15|
you want him to pay you the money he owes, yet you locked him up. Shey na prison e go work the money ni?
He ought to have paid back a long time ago. His conscience certainly must have pricked him to pay back but because of the friendship they shared, I believe he decided to take advantage of it.
Now Mike and Charles friendship would suffer the consequences.

|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 7:36am On Jul 15|
I knew there was more attached to the twenty million.But why did he want to severe my relationship.Charles meant more to me than my sisters.
"Dad why"i asked.
"Charles and his father are betrayers,so if you dont them to break your heart,then cut the ties between you and Charles"
"Dad,Charles is a good person.He is the only friend i have"i replied soberly.
"I dont have much to say but the day i set my eyes on Charles in this house,i will kill you"dad threatened.
"But dad..."I wanted to say but he interrupted me"get out of my sight"he thundered and i scurried away.
Immediately i got to my room i phoned Charles.He was angry.
"Why are you calling"his voice was unfriendly.
"I called to say sorry for what my dad has done"
"Sorry?can sorry bail my dad from the dungeon your heartless father threw him into"Charles fired hotly.
"Calm down Charley,he also asked me to stop befriending you"
"Its not a suprise and never cross my path again"Charley hollered and hung up.
But why was dad this heartless.

On monday when i returned to school,I met Charles alone in the class room so i approached him.
"Charles what's up"I greeted and unlatched my bag.He ignored me.
"I am talking to you Charly"i probed,but he snubbed.
"Charles you shouldn't allow our parent rift to drift us away"I touched him but he slapped me hard that i almost fell.I was taken aback at his attitude.I rubbed my cheek as i retreated.He was still coming closer to me lividly,i saw he was ready for attack so i attempted to run away but he grabbed my shirt and pounced on me reeling out offensive punches on my stomach.My parent had cautioned me against fighting and in my whole life,i have never fought with anybody.
I was begging him but he kept punching me so i started crying.
"Charles plesse..Leave me alone...Remember it is me"I cried out but he was bent on killing me seeing i was defenceless.He tore my uniform into pieces.I could see the cruelty in his eyes.
My teacher rushed in and seperated us,by then strength was already leaving me

Charles was panting heavily.
"Charles why are you beating your best friend"My teacher turned to Charles.
"He insulted me"He curted.
"Is that the reason you beat your friend to this extent"
"He deserve it"Charles replied roughly.
I was crying profusely as i felt pain all over my body,i started feeling dizzy.I stared at my body,my uniform shiry was torn to irreparable pieces.
"Is that true Mike"my teacher asked me.
I could not reply but continued crying.Now the whole class was filled up.My classmates were shaking their head in suprise and some pitied me.
"This is the height of wickedness you could have ever exhibited Charles.Charles you are wicked"My teacher said sadly and turned to me.She removed my shirt which was now stained with blood and tugged me out of the class amidst consolatory gestures from my classroom.
"You will be suspending for this"my teacher fired lividly as she pulled me out of the class"you need to be at the school clinic"she said to me.
At the Clinic,they treated me and took me home.
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by enirock(m): 12:54am On Jul 16|
Balancing/understanding emotions even for adults is not easy most time talk more of kids. I do understand Charles's frustrations, but I think he took it to the extreme.
Thanks Pre4 for the consistency and God bless u.
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 12:28pm On Jul 16|
Immediately i got home,i jumped on my bed and wept.Why had dad done this to Charles dad?All my life i have never had a friend except from Charles and now i have lost him.
But my dad had always given more than that money to Charles dad but why was this particular money bringing problem?I had so many questions to ask but who will answer me.
I did not even know when i slept off but i was woken by my sisters Mmesoma and Julian.
"Mike,what happened at school today?we were at your class to pick you up from school only for us to hear that Charles fought with you.It was then i knew it was true when your driver did not show up to pick you"Julian asked.She was my favourite sister because she treated me specially.
"I did not fight with Charles,he beat me"I managed to get up from my bed in pains.
"But why"Mmesoma was befuddled,she examined my body as i winced in pain.
"I dont know why,he said dad detained his father"
"Were you the one who detained his father?so why did he have to ravage his anger on you"Juliana asked
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 1:09pm On Jul 16|
"I dont know"i replied.
"Somma come to think of this oh,Charles dad and our father are good time friends so why the bias now?Dad cant behave this way just for twenty million,there is more attached to this"Juliana said.
"I have thought about that before.Dad built a plaza for Charles dad,he gifted Charles dad a car last year so why the problem.This is a puzzle we cant solve"Somma replied.They then turned to me.
"Its okay Mike.Dont let dad know about this or else he will rain more brimstone on their family for doing this to his only son"Julian said.I nodded my head.Both of them cuddled me.
"Hope the school clinic gave you drugs"Somma asked.
"Yes some pain relief"i replied weakly .
"Let me get you food,just relax you will be fine"Juliana told me as they both left my room.
They returned later with food,i had no appetite but they forced the food down my throat.
I was in my room when dad stormed into my room in anger.
"What did Charles did to you"he asked and sat by my bed.I was taught not to lie.
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by aprilwise(m): 1:34pm On Jul 16|

Charles shouldn't have reacted that way to his friend
Thanks for the update
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 12:06pm On Jul 17|
I sat up on my bed,i winced in pain.
"I repeat what have Charles done to you"Dad was seething so i was already trembling.
Mum and my two sister barged into the room.
"Clement,is this reason you bounced into the house like something was after you,you did not even say a word to anyone"my mum said.
"I am sorry darling but my son is more important to me.I was on my way home when his teacher phoned me and told me Charles laid his hands on my son"My dad said.
"I have attended to him,he is fine just childish troubles that adults should not take serious"my mum intervened.
"But how why is he still in pain,his face had revealed he was panged by that beast.I still want to know the reason why that small boy should act this wickedly like his father"Dad was fumimg.
"Clement,it is because you detained his father.If it were you,you will do the same.Please i am begging release this man"
"Chima wont get out of that place until he pays me every dime he owes me"
"Clement write this debt off,you are more than this money
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 12:20pm On Jul 17|
"I wont do that"my dad replied defiantly.
"Clement,is there something you are hiding from me?You and Chima were best friends before i married you,so what is happening now"
"Nothing"my father voice was calm now.I am sure all of us noticed that the steam in his voice had vanished.
"Dont tell me you are hiding something from me"mum queried.
"nothing,just the twenty million palavar.I need to rest"Dad retorted and left the room.
Mum stung a suprising look at my sisters who shrugged and left my room.
She turned to me
"My baby,have a nice rest okay.You will be fine if you wake up"she said and covered my body properly with the bed duvet,she kissed me and left.
My phone rang so i went to answer it,i shook my head at the caller"charley".
I picked it reluctantly.
"I am sorry for what i did to you at school,i regret doing that"Charles voice sounded like he was sobbing.I couldnt reply as tears flowed down my cheeks.
"Its okay,i have forgiven you"i said.
"Thank you very much.I will make it up to you"
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 12:36pm On Jul 17|
I resumed school the following week tuesday,my classmates were happy to see me,they welcomed me as some volunteered to help cover up the topics i have missed.Charles was at a corner,his fac was sober so i went up to him.I must tell you the truth i still love Charles in spite of what he had done to me.
"Hello Charles"i said to him and sat beside him.My classmates were shocked at my attitudes.
"I have forgiven you so dont feel bad"I told him and got up.
Charles grabbed my legs and fell on his knees in tears.
"Forgive me Mike,It was the devil"he said.
I helped him up to his feet and looked into his face.
"I have forgiven you but i will advise you to work on your paranoia and temperament"I said and stretched out my hand,he took my hand.
My teacher came in the classroom and met us.You need to see the shock in her eyes.She drew closer.
"Are you guys now friends once again"she asked.
"Yes we are"i replied"or charles arent we"i asked charles.
He nodded as he mopped his face with his handkerchief.
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by enirock(m): 12:44pm On Jul 17|
There's an innocence childhood brings that gets lost as we age. It's good to see that they've made up. I believe this is more than 20million.
Thanks Pre4 for the updates.
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 12:54pm On Jul 17|
"Mike,i am shocked at your meekness"my teacher said.
"I have to forgive all my offenders so tha God can equally forgive my shortcomings"I told her.
"Its obvious.Continue this way"she replied and retired to her seat.
Charles was not yet comfortable with me,his conscience was convicting him.
During recess time,i invited him to share my food and ice-cream.
"Charles stop being guilty,i have forgiven you"i told him.He nodded.
"But what is your findings about our father scuffles"i started the discussion.
"I dont really know but your father is planning to confiscate our house"Charles replied.
"But why"I asked in suprise.
"He have seized all my dad cars and his shops.we were planning to bail my dad but they refused us to see him let alone bail him"
"Our fathers is hiding something from us,dont you think"I asked.
"Yes my instinct tells me so"Charles replied.
"My dad is tearing down the house saying your father is owing him twenty million.But your father two cars equate that amount so why did he want to seal your house

This is good. I had to read the whole updates today, it was really interesting. Mike's dad is hiding the really reason he imprisoned charles's dad from his family, the hate and contemp he has for father and son its way beyond issue of a loan gone bad scenerio. Could it be that both son and father would betray their bestie. Thanks PRE4, let me not run fastest than the writter ooo, just excited..
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 1:57pm On Jul 17|
Hahahahahahahaha,just calm down.More will come

"Yesterday a lawyer came to give us quit notice.If your dad chase us out of the house,where do you expect us to live"Charles said.
"This is serious!the problem is that i dont know whats wrong"I replied.
"For one week now i have not set my eyes on my dad or even heard from him,i dont even know if he is alive,i am really confused right now"Charles said close to tears.
"Its okay Charley"
"I dont know why the rich keeps oppressing the middle class and poor"
"Hei!!Charley.Its not like that nau"I curted.
"I'm sorry Mike"Charles replied.
During close hour,i invited Charles to drive home with me.
My sisters were suprised to see Charles with me.
"Is this not the Charles that had beaten hell out of you last week"Mmesoma exclaimed.
"What is he doing here"Julian asked.
I smiled"I brought him home to plead with dad not to seal their house"i replied.
"Seal their house"Both of my sisters exclaimed.
"This is getting deeper,why will dad want to collect the house he bought for Charles dad"Somma asked.

|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 5:35pm On Jul 19|
"I still cant figure it out"Julian said startled.
"This is going to far for God sake.He wont even tell mum"Mmesoma replied.
I pulled Charles to my room.He was quiet and uncomfortable.We ate lunch and watched television while we waited for my dad arrival.
Dad and Mum came very late in the evening.
I pulled Charles along with me to welcome them.
"Why is this boy doing here"dad shouted when he saw Charles.Mum calmed him down.
"Michael why did you bring the person who almost killed you last week into the house"Mum asked.
"Mum,Charles told me dad want to seal off their house"I said crestfallen.
You need to see the shock on mum face,she turned to my dad.
"Clement is that right"?She asked.
"Why the hell is children interfering in this?this is a matter not meant for Children"dad replied.
"You havent answered my question darling?"Mum quizzed.
"Yes,i have sold the house to the bank i borrowed the twenty million from"Dad replied.
"Clement you are a pastor and you are behaving like one who had never entered the church"
|Re: So You Betrayed Me-a Christian Fiction by PRE4(m): 5:47pm On Jul 19|
Dad looked away.
"Clement you are hiding things from me,i can see pains in your eyes"Mum was calm now.She moved closer to dad and held him in the waist.
"Chima is a devil!I am punishing for what he has done to me"Dad said soberly,tears was gathering in his eyes.
Mum turned to Charles.
"Dont worry dear,he wont seal your house"She said to Charles.
There was a loud banging in the gate,we all turned to the gate.
"Samod,check who's knocking at the gate"Dad told our gateman who rushed to open the gate.Charles mum ran into our compound looking dishevelled.
"Clement biko,i beg you in the name of Jesus,stop tormenting us"Charles mum ran to my dad and knelt at his feet."oh Charles,i knew you will be here,lets beg him ohh"she told Charles who immediately went on his knees at dad feet.
I just could not understand what was happening.
"Clement,what is going on"Mum asked my dad.
"Listen woman!Chima will die in that cell,i will destroy his family and repay him back in his own coins.My mind is made up"Dad thundered fiercely.
