|Love Triangle 1 - The Storm by KunleAJ(m): 2:29pm On Nov 10, 2018|
I finally made it out of my shell after training for a while. Reading books written by my bosses here on Nairaland seems to stir the writer in me.
I just wish I can be as descriptive as Oga Souloho19, as brilliant as LarrySun, as Magenetic as Giannaaaaaa, As breathtaking as RepoGirl, as detailed as TheBlessedMAN, as mindful as Kayo80, as crazy as GeorgeStark my gee, as sensual as BadooHemy and as creative as my all time best writer Fiyah.
I can't cover enough grounds alone, please correct me in any manner as I do not take offense easily.
Let's Do This!

Love Triangle 1 - The Storm
Do you know the meaning of family? It's a bond that binds you to those you love who love you back.
"You will be Late Tumi!" his mother bellows from the dining, her fists to her hip and her face a mask of anger. Daring him not to come down that instant.
Mrs Adeoye a petite woman in her late 30's, mother of the one and only Tumi, who she birthed after serious complications during pregnancy and was told she could not give birth anymore.
She was brought up in a family where things had to be done according to plan and her father never permitted mistakes and she was her father's daughter.
"Leave him be Sarah, he's just a kid"
Sarah's look softened as she looked at her husband, one of her two loves, the half apple of her eyes. He wasn't very handsome but he was the smartest man she knew and she fell in love with him at first sight.
"I know love but he needs to grow up, I can't have him grow irresponsible" she said, her palm resting on his shoulder.
Mr Adeoye faced his wife a loopside grin on his face "You really need to let him grow up on his own, that will make him stronger and a better man"
She drew close and placed a kiss on his cheek.
As if her husband's pleading fell on deaf ears, she straightened put on her anger mask and let his ears ring on her behalf.
Tumi's heart lurched in his chest as always, yes, his mum's voice screaming his name always did that to him.
He stared at himself in the mirror while brushing his hair, he had good looks courtesy of a cool looking dad and a beautiful mum.
His room was a typical boy's room except being untidy, Mrs Adeoye as he always called her whenever she gets too bossy would have his head on a wooden platter if she ever had a reason to call his room dirty.
It was a new term and his last in secondary school. The holidays had been boring with his mum always around him.
He attends one of the best schools - Grace Hill Schools - in the state and he was one of the best students.
He couldn't afford to be late but he had overslept and didn't even go down for the morning devotion, his dad must have told his mum to let him sleep.
He sprayed his clothes lightly with his lavender perfume grabbed his bag and hurried out of the room taking the stairs in twos.
He moved straight to the dining seeing his mother in her signature spot with her signature pose. He smiled, kissed her on the cheek pulled out a dining chair and sat.
"Morning mum, morning dad. Hope you slept well?"
"We slept too well thank you son" Mr Adeoye said and winked at his wife who smiled lovingly.
With Her mask of fury now gone and her voice normal and collected she asked "Why didn't you come for devotion this morning?"
Without giving him a chance to explain she continued "just forget it, I don't want you going late to school so I reduced your food to make sure you finish up on time.
Tumi stared at his father and smiled the breakfast of toasts and tea seemed to be more on his plate than even his father's.
Mr Adeoye threw his head back and laughed "You keep spoiling him indirectly" he said and looked at his wife who seemed to be overly interested in the plate in front of her.
"hurry up you two, I have to be at the mart in 30 minutes"
The Adeoye's were not very rich but comfortable and a very happy family with everything going on well for them.
The Mr was an architect and after working with a popular firm for several years he built his own Architectural design firm which is standing strong after 10 years of operation.
The Mrs who has always loved her family sacrificed her job as an accountant to start a mart in order to be able to take care of the family.
The Master, a loveable high school kid who with the help of family is growing to a fine young man and aiming to be a a food scientist had his future set.
The family was a model for all other families with these qualities.
The Adeoye's resided in Yaba area of Lagos, the Mr had bought the house and renovated it to his taste. It was a a storey building on half plot of land with five rooms each with its own bathroom and toilet, a sitting room, one kitchen, a store, and a visitor's restroom. Painted different shades of green on the outside and white on the inside.
Tumi finished up his food, gulped his tea, wiped his mouth and stood picking up his backpack.
They were all ready and filed out of the house to the car which was the only one the Adeoye's had. A blue 2017 Venza.
"A storm is brewing and the weather is cold, let's hurry"
They moved faster and everyone took their position, courtesy of the Mrs.
Mr Adeoye drove out of the compound and the automated gate closed and locked.
A new day had begun and a storm was indeed brewing, one that would change everything... Almost Everything...

Love Triangle 1 - The Storm
Sorry for the late update, work has been crazy, I am trying not to bore you with my long epistles describing people and places therefore I am trying to cut down the descriptions so please bear with me if my descriptions sound unprofessional... Not that I am a professional, bltz.. far from it. Just try to stroke my ego a bit .
If you don't believe in love at first sight let me work your mind. It am a living witness.
The drive to Tumi's school was uneventful as his father made his way expertly having traveled the route over a thousand times... Not literally.
Within 15 minutes he was dropped off at the school gate and his mum squeezed some cash into his palm after the initial greasing from his father.
He waved as the car left the school compound. After watching them leave he proceeded to the building.
Tumi grinned as he made a recollection of how his mum pretends to be very strict with him when all she does is to spoil him silly.
Grace Hills Schools, located in the Adekunle area of Yaba was a huge building of 6 floors with state of the art facilities to ensure world class students were produced. Painted brown and cream in rhyme with the school uniform.
He was in SSS 3 D second to the last class on the last floor of the building.
A feminine voice calling his name brought him out of his reverie, a voice he could recognize anywhere, Fola's.
The figure slid into view with a megawatt smile on her face and without caring about what others may think she pulled him into a tight hug.
"I have missed you T" she said unflinching
Fola was one of the few ladies who were naturally pretty without makeup, she always had a smile on her lips.
She stood at 5ft4' with Tumi 3' above her.
"I can't say the same since you left me for your cousin's with mum bearing on my neck every minute of the day" he said sarcastically with humor lacing his voice and a look of false defiance.
"Awwwn, sorry about that. Dad half dragged me to the place. That aside I have lots of gists for you!" she squealed releasing him from the hug.
Fola's family and the Adeoye's had been friends since the latter moved to the area. She was seen as a sister to Tumi reason being that she was also an only child.
Though younger with 5 months, she guards Tumi like a mother hen. A look from Her was enough to scare other girls away from him.
They had attend the school since crèche having enough time to know each other without any qualms
She clung to his arm as they reached the stairs.
Tumi had been taught all he needed to know about sex and relationships by his parents as they were good Christians but also realists who left no stone unturned concerning the matter.
He felt the change in Fola's behavior, the way she held him had a different feel to it as she was pressing her boobs to his arm, her eyes had a very special glint to them this time. A glint he couldn't miss from a girl.
"What happened to you during the holidays? You seem... different" he asked as they got to the fifth floor.
her expression piqued with interest, a slight smile dancing on her lips.
"Why do you think I changed? What do you see Tumi? What do you think?" she asked obviously amused.
"nothing" he said, not wanting to spoil the good mood.
"i will tell you what happened Tumi" bitting her lips she continued "They opened my eyes!"
Her gaze slid to his, she moved closer and placed a light kiss on his lips.
He was shocked beyond words the meaning of her statement dawning on him. She was no longer the innocent girl he used to know, her eyes said it all.
He looked around to check whether people were eyeing them but it was the opposite, they all had something or someone taking their focus.
"see you in class" she said and proceeded to the class, a bounce to her steps, Obviously happy.
He shook his head and followed her.
He had known her for so long he considered her family with no hidden feelings. He pondered on what to do as he entered the classroom and greeted his mates with hugs and handshakes.
The classroom was rectangular with 30 students seats, a bookshelf resting at the back facing the marker board. The chairs were arranged in fives per row.
The teacher's desk was located at front center of the class with a podium below it making it higher than the students' seats. It was what you would call an all seeing spot.
Tumi's seat was on the far right just by the window - fresh air spot - he called it.
The school bell chimed and the principal' voice boomed from the speaker overhead welcoming them to the qualifying term of the school year.
Tumi barely listened, he sat it out thinking about Fola her seat was just behind his. She jabbed him with a finger and he turned to face her.
She was all smiles looking at him intensely, he smiled and decided there and then to give 'THEM' a chance.
"want to go out with me later in the day miss?" he asked and her smile widened as she mouthed the words 'YES!' she said drawing the attention of her mate yet not caring.
"where are we going? What time? Should I come to your place or will you come to mine?"
"calm down Fola, we can discuss that later" he said amidst laughter.
"I Am curious T, say something"
"Till later miss" he said and faced the front with Fola continuously nudging him.
A number of eyes bore at them with a pair being the class rep's, Charles, a handsome but boring and pathetic looking guy who had his eyes out for Fola though she never looked his way for once.
He was determined to break their friendship and truth be told he tried but it never happened, he once went to the level of reporting them to the principal that the duo were in a romantic relationship knowing how much the man frowned against it but the principal had not bulged telling him that the two were family and he should mind his business.
It had infuriated him the more and he had proceeded to wow her with gifts but she had declined it all politely.
Seeing them happy and eyeing each other lovingly made him want to puke.
"Seems like the ghost seat will remain unoccupied till we pass out from this school" He said drawing the attention of his classmates. Yes, he liked that, all the attention on just him.
The seat had remained like that since SSS1 from every class they moved, the school management had always made them 29 in the class with other classes completing 30 or more as if expecting someone to show up.
" I have a feeling it won't be empty for long" Tumi said and all the attention went to him.
Charles cursed under his breath
"Why? it is our last term here and I don't think anything can happen" said Diana, a chubby short girl and a student of the class.
"Well, we'll see"
At that point their class teacher came in and they lowered their voices, a figure with curly brown hair and equally brown backpack matching her brown school skirt followed her quietly, her head bowed.
"Greet!" Charles bellowed and they all stood up to greet.
"Good Morning Ma!"
Charles smiled to himself enjoying the feel of command he drew after a while of being on break.
Miss Maureen, a small, young woman answered with a smile on her face. "Good morning, how was your holiday?" see asked.
They all talked replying with chuckles and laughter here and there.
The girl beside the teacher raised her head and the class went quite. All eyes went to her.
Tumi had been bored with the welcomes and hadn't noticed her when she came in with the teacher, the class went quiet and he looked up curious at what could make the squabbling kids go quiet.
He was stunned, his heart went to his his eyes, the girl in front of the class wasn't pretty, no, you can't call her pretty, no and no, she was beauty!
The word beauty made flesh.
Her hair, her eyes, her face, her lips, her bust, her waist, those legs and finally her body.
His Jaws dropped of their own accord. He was smitten, yes, damn smitten. No one noticed, well no one except Fola.
He collected himself when he heard the teacher's voice addressing them.
"Well, thank you for the quiet. This is Miss Bamigboye Angel and she will be joining our class, she needs your help so give her the support she needs."
Angel, he thought, how befitting. The new girl's eyes darted brilliantly around the room and settled on him and a beautiful smile laced her lips making her more Angelic at least to him. Not wanting to feel like a coward he smiled back.
The teacher's voice broke his focus once more
"I want her to sit at the front, can someone here volunteer to go to the empty seat?"
Damien, another student of the class whose seat was at the front beside Tumi's sat up without a word and made his way to the back, to the ghost seat.
"Thank you Master Damien, appreciate him Miss Angel"
"Thank you Damien, I really appreciate your selflessness" her voice a melody and the smile on her face seeming permanent.
Damien could have blushed if he could.
"Have your seat and prepare for today's classes" the teacher said and left the classroom.
Everyone was quite, as she sat down and started unpacking her things to the desk.
Diana broke the silence 'let me help you! I am Diana'
She said and moved towards Angel's seat to help in arranging the books.
That seem to break the tension and the students continued their chattering.
"oh Tumi! You are always right!" Diana exclaimed.
"I just felt it, it's no big deal"
"so you saw this coming? Are you a seer?" Angel asked chuckling.
Impressed with her communication skill he regained confidence.
"yes, you can say that" and they both laughed,.
Before long they were chatting like friends, like they had known each other for long.
Oblivious of their surroundings, several students were looking at them obviously jealous. However, 2 pairs of eyes were special , one pair happy and satisfied, the other furious and laced with hatred.
Charles was happy, yes! He was happy. Angel could take Tumi away, that would make him happy. Fola would finally be his. He chuckled, barely able to contain his excitement.
Fola was fuming, her eyes were red and angry, her rage made her shake and she held the desk not wanting anyone to notice. Tumi and the new bitch were talking like they had been friends for eternity.
Tumi was hers and hers alone, not even the angels could take him away, not even Angel. At that point she vowed to do all she could to make Tumi love her, to make him worship her.
Tears threatened her eyes, she put her head on the desk and wept silently. Tears of frustration, hurt, love, anger, passion and hate.
Tumi was right, she had changed, she had to!
To be continued...
I didn't bother describing Angel yet because truth be told I can't do justice to her beauty with my poor human features description skill
Let her beauty be a burden for your imagination.
As much as I try to learn that aspect of writing I keep feeling like I just can't get it right.
Your suggestions, criticism and comments are highly welcome because as I said earlier I don't take offense easily.
Thanks For reading
