They say that male animals engage in aggressive behaviour in the animal kingdom to establish the pecking order. While female animals could also engage in such behaviour, physical fights are more common in males of various species. It is not uncommon to see men compete with other men to establish a social hierarchy, and women are often in the middle of such incidents. George and Philip found themselves in such a situation.
George and Philip found themselves hanging out in the same circles because of Peter, their mutual friend. Peter had a knack for bringing people together — even people who would ordinarily not be friends. George and Philip were very different and hardly agreed on anything, but both owed much of their success to Peter, so they ended up in the same circle. Their relationship was characterized by much competition over women, financial success and over who was more intelligent.
George and Philip met Petra on the same day. She was tall, light-skinned, curvy and had long natural hair. Petra commanded the room with her beauty. It wasn’t difficult to understand why George and Philip were interested in her. She was a friend to one of their mutual friends. Initially, she bonded with George and later spent time with Philip when George left. The conversations went on after that first meeting.
Petra seemed to like George more, and they increased the frequency of their interactions. A month later, they were in a relationship. Their relationship was full of drama from the onset. They were those passionate lovers who argued most of the time but couldn’t stay away from each other. Given Philip and George’s ‘rivalry’, Philip wasn’t too pleased when Petra started going out with George, but he took it like a man.
On the fateful evening, Peter invited the whole group to enjoy nyama and drinks, and Philip offered to host. George came for the gathering with Petra. There was tension between them, but everyone was used to the drama. To avoid each other, Petra ended up staying next to Philip.
The whole group enjoyed the conversations while indulging in food and alcohol. People began to loosen up and unhinged. The tension increased between Petra and George. In addition to their prior issues, George took offence to her sitting next to Philip. They threw jabs at each other, but Peter intervened. He took them aside and tried to help them regain composure and self-control. It worked for about two hours. Peter left.
Someone in the group suggested they should play drinking games. It was a bad idea. People got wasted and lost control. Petra remembered she was angry at George. She started insulting him.
“You know I don’t even know why I’m with you. I have been proposed to by an Italian man who has his shit together,” Petra told George.
“Petra, not here,” George told her.
“Why? You don’t want them to seeing your dirty linen?” Petra taunted him.
“George control your woman. I don’t need this kind of drama in my house,” Philip told George.
“Stay out of this!” George yelled at Philip.
George stood and walked towards Petra. He grabbed her hand, trying to pull her outside. Petra lost her balance and poured her drink on Philip.
“F*ck!” Philip cursed.
Meanwhile, Petra started pushing George with the hand he wasn’t holding. George misheard Philip in that commotion, and a drunk George swung at him, accusing him of insulting his woman. Philip wouldn’t take a punch from George, so he punched back. In seconds, they had exchanged blows and broken a glass coffee table. Somehow, Petra ended up on the floor, too. Philip and George also exchanged verbal insults that felt like both had bottled up their thoughts about each other for a while and had waited for a moment to let them out.
The rest of the group eventually separated them, but not before Philip severely damaged George’s face. He had to go to a clinic. He turned, looking for Petra as he left Philip’s house. The loss of the fight didn’t crush him as much as seeing Petra reach out for Philip.
“Petra, what are you doing?” George asked as he held his hurting nose.
“I’m staying with Philip,” Petra responded.
George started cursing out, but the rest of the group pulled him out of the house to avoid a repeat of the fight. They all left with him, but Petra stayed the night with Philip. Later on, as they reviewed the night’s events, George realized that Philip had not insulted Petra. He had cursed at the drink staining him. However, it was inconsequential after Petra chose Philip over him.
