Christina identified it before I left the room, and it was decided that I would take it home and keep it safe. Chin Fei saw me take it.
Later, Grace called me to ask if I had the camera, and I said I did. Amy also called to confirm.
However, while chatting with Lik Wen later on MSN, I took the liberty and played a prank, saying I had a camera with a totally different brand name. Troubled by this, he called Chin Fei (Chief Editor), Grace and Amy.
I later found out that Chin Fei and Weng Ken actually drove to school to search for it (or something like that). And Amy was rather in tears; Lik Wen had a 45-minute chat with her over the phone.
She later called me, and asked, between sobs, if I really had it. I reassured her that I did.
Fuck. What have I done? I can stand the wrath of the entire board, but I daren't look in Amy's face -- the one to whom I brought so much joy and comfort in the evening, but later so much grief by a silly prank.
(I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Forgive me.)
If there are sins that are the hardest to wash away, they are those of a friend's betrayal.
