What About Your Friends Very Short African Folklore Story

Ndidi can betray me, but I choose not to betray my peace of mind.

Ndidi and a Nyongo went and hired themselves to a woman to be her seamstresses.

In the middle of the night, Ndidi rose and placed in Nyongo's bed a small piece of golden thread, and then hid the rest in her apron.

In the morning, the woman missed her golden thread and she immediately accused the Ndidi of having stolen it.

"Look in Nyongo’s bed," said her so-called friend Ndidi, "and you will see who the thief is." The woman did so, and then whipped Nyongo until she was nearly dead.

When Nyongo woke up from the beating she replayed the wrenching situation in her mind, over and over, digging a deeper rut in her memory.

She asked her friend Ndidi what happened and listened closely and with an open heart and mind to the answer.

But, Ndidi suddenly turned cold without ever explaining why leaving the house in a rage.

Nyongo then understood Ndidi betrayed her loyalty, friendship, and trust that they had built for years over a tiny spool of golden thread.

Of all experiences in life, betrayal by a trusted friend is one of the most difficult to understand and forgive.

However, Nyongo said to herself "Ndidi can betray me, but I choose not to betray my peace of mind."
