I have a Friend, who is in a bit of a bind.
He is a Family man, a Religiously devout, Upstanding Citizen.
He has a great job, with one of the most prestigious institutions on the planet.
And he has a Deep Secret.
One time, several years ago, he had what amounts to a homosexual experience...
He was... shall we say, intoxicated at the time... and just sort of went with the flow, in a peer pressure sort of way. (It's sort of a complicated
Anyways... this is not the bad part.
The Bad part IS, that someone took some pictures of him, "Indisposed" and they are using these photographs as Blackmail material.
Now, his job is rather serious, and he is pretty high up in the ranks.... and the person who is blackmailing him, knows this, and is using HIS
position, to get things of value from his employer.
He is scared to be exposed, because he loves his woman, and she, her family, and his family are quite religious.
Not to mention that his employers are also quite religious, and if he DID get exposed, he would almost certainly lose his job, the resepect of his
family, and possibly his mate.
The only problem is, that his blackmailer is getting more and more brash, ripping of his employer for considerable amounts of money, and resources,
and because of his fear of exposure, he can't really do anything about it.
The blackmail is getting to the point where it is not only endangering his job, and his employer... but his entire way of life is threatened by the
ever encroaching demands of his tormentors.
So, he is stuck between a rock and a hard place...
On the one hand, he can stay silent, and be the unwilling puppet of people who are up to absolutely no good, that might end up destroying his life
And on the other, he can come clean, remove the threat of blackmail, but possibly have his life, utterly ruined.
So, what should my friend do?
Always Faithful, ErtaiNaGia
