SpeedBoost not working,My speedBoostTaken variable isn't working, why?

,So i’m making a small tribute game to the world’s hardest game and I’m trying to make a speedBoost item, I’ve made a bool that becomes true if the item is taken and destroys the speedBoost item, the item does detroy itself, however the speedBoostTaken variable doesn’t change.Why?
SpeedBoost script :

public class SpeedBoost : MonoBehaviour
    public Character character;
    public int Boost;
    //Duration not used yet
    public int Duration;

    void OnTriggerEnter2D(Collider2D trigger)
        if (trigger.gameObject.name == "character")
            character.GetComponent<Character>().speedBoostTaken = true;
            Debug.Log("Destroy Object");

Character script :

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class Character : MonoBehaviour
    public SpeedBoost sBoost;
    public float speed;                //Floating point variable to store the player's movement speed.
    public bool speedBoostTaken = false;
    public Rigidbody2D rb2d;        //Store a reference to the Rigidbody2D component required to use 2D Physics. 
    private void Awake()

    void Start()
        //Get and store a reference to the Rigidbody2D component so that we can access it.
        rb2d = GetComponent<Rigidbody2D>();
        rb2d.name = "character";
        sBoost = GetComponent<SpeedBoost>();

    //FixedUpdate is called at a fixed interval and is independent of frame rate. Put physics code here.
    void FixedUpdate()
        if (speedBoostTaken == true)
            Debug.Log("Speed Boost Taken");
            speed = speed + sBoost.Boost;
        float moveHorizontal = Input.GetAxis("Horizontal");

        float moveVertical = Input.GetAxis("Vertical");

        //Use the two store floats to create a new Vector2 variable movement.
        Vector2 movement = new Vector2(moveHorizontal, moveVertical);

        //Call the AddForce function of our Rigidbody2D rb2d supplying movement multiplied by speed to move our player.
        rb2d.AddForce(movement * speed);


I’m quite sure your problem is in the “Character” class. You are referencing the SpeedBoost script speed = speed + sBoost.Boost and this is after you set the bool to true, but it is also after you Destroy the SpeedBoost script. Unless your Character class sBoost variable is a different instance, I would think that is your issue
