What would you do???

Kon dropped out of sec. school. Athough a very bright student one thing or the other made him leave school, his boyhood friend Terfa however managed to go on with his studies, and at a time when it wasnt easy to make a Division A, in WAEC, Terfa did. He won a scholarship to study abroad and left for London where he did a first and postgraduate degree, crowning it with a Ph.D in Aeronautic Engineering, he was a hot cake and had his pick of jobs abroad. Time passed and Kon forgot about his friend Terfa. Kon married, had 5 kids, and was in the village suffering.
One fateful day he went to the market in Zaki-Biam, as he made to cross the road an oncoming car sreeched to a stop, pulled over to the kerb and stopped. A well dressed man stepped out, shouting his name. If not for the familiarity of the man's features and voice, Kon would have ran away but something made him to stop and walk back towards the car. He bent respectfully and greeted the man standing beside the well polished car. Scattex, is this you? The car owner enquired, calling Kon's nickname, way back in his secondary school days. It all came back, he hadn't heard that name for decades, taking a closer look he discovered this was his one and only friend from way back - Terfa! He took 2 steps back and shouted, boliskoko d jah!(terfa's nickname) This u? What u doing here? Pleasantries over, kon narrated his ordeal to Terfa who was actually in a hurry heading back to Lagos to catch a flight the next day back to London, he had no time. He pulled from his glove compartment a Union Bank Cheque Booklet, wrote a cheque of 5mil, handed it over to his friend and zoomed off. In the euphoria, Kon did not even ask for Terfa's address, there was no Gsm then so no phone numbers were exchanged either. Of course Kon could read the words on the cheque well, he quickly left the market and went home to tell the wife and leave for Union Bank at Gboko to cash the cheque. He called his wife inside and told her what had happened. He proceeded to tell her his intentions about the money. He would give her 500k to start her business while he would build a house, expand his yam farm and then lastly, marry a second wife to help on the farm! The wife heard nothing except two words 'second wife'. Enraged beyond words, she grabbed the cheque from the husband and chewed and swallowed it!
