Sabina's Plagiarism Exposed! 😮

After exposing Sabina's plagiarism at the family event, our protagonist faced backlash from the family, who insisted they should let it go and not interfere with Sabina's job. 🙄 But they stood firm, giving Sabina an ultimatum to either prove she had permission to use the story or face being called out to her editor. 😤 Sabina failed to provide proof and had to recall her submission, leading to even more family drama. 🌪️ With the family divided, our protagonist is left questioning if they did the right thing. 😕 Let's see what the internet thinks of this sticky situation... 🧐
