I am in a dilemma and I need your urgent counsel.
I am very close to my elder sister. we are only two girls in a family of four and we have been close friends. She has been married for a while but I am yet to get married. I stay regularly with them when I have to travel into Abuja. Several times, I go spend holidays with them at her invitation.
She recently fell ill and was in the hospital for a while. During this period, I took time off my job in Lagos to come to stay with them as they didn’t have much help.
One day I noticed she was behaving strangely towards me. I put it down to the illness but got concerned even after the behaviour continued after she was discharged.
recently, I was on my way to their room to ask her something when I overheard her and her husband quarrelling in their room. They didn’t see me and she was accusing the husband of sleeping with me. I was devasted, to say the least, as nothing of that matter had happened.
Her husband is close to all of us and I regard him more as an elder brother. I was shocked as to where that thought could come from. The husband is one of those quiet types who say nothing. All he told her was that she was mad.
I have been very uncomfortable since then. My sister has been cold towards me. She hasn’t said anything neither has her husband. I just noticed that she is not as friendly with me as she has been.
Dear Davina, what do I do? I am due to go back home in a few days. I don’t want to leave the situation like this and yet I am concerned about provoking the situation further. If I leave, I don’t think I would be back.
