The new girl that was admitted into SS3 was the talk of the town. Everyone talked about her in the dormitory, the dining hall, even in their various classes. “She’s hot” everyone would say like she’s the only girl in school. Even the junior students admired her.
I soon found myself staring at her in class at any slight opportunity. “She’s awesome” I told Samuel one day while in class “I think I’m in love”.
The teacher noticed that I’ve not been concentrating actively in class. She wrote a question on the white board “Timmy, solve this question for us” the teacher said sliding the white board marker to me.
Although it came as a shock at first but after critical checking, the question turned out to be a cheap and simple one which only required logical reasoning. I solved the question and gave a mocking bow to the teacher. The whole class erupted in loud laughter.
The class came to an end when the bell rang to signify that it is break-time. Samuel and I went to the school cafeteria to get some snacks and probably some drinks too. We met Favour there too.
“Good morning Timmy” Favour said as she threw a friendly punch at me.
“Good morning dear” I answered, smiling back at her.
“Timmy, please don’t forget to attend fellowship on Friday and bring your friends along too… lest I forget, here are some tracts for you. Please distribute them when you get to your hostel”. Favour said handing some copies over to me. She offered Samuel too “mtcheeeew” Samuel hissed and walked away.
“You two will never get along” I giggled “and I sense you two are in love” I added sarcastically and went away.
Samuel already ordered for meat pies and Coca Cola drinks. “Bon apetite!” he said raising his thumbs up.
Samuel and I chatted as we continue to devour our snacks quitely then Ayokanmi walked into the cafeteria. She headed straight towards the counter where she ordered for a plate of rice mixed with chicken and a chilled hollandia yoghurt drink. She sat right behind me.
“Samuel… Samuel” I called tapping him by the wrist
“Uhm” he answered reluctantly
“Ayokanmi is here…. she’s sitting right behind me” I whispered.
“You said you love her? What about your girlfriend? Tunmise? What about her? That girl really loves you. As innocent as she is! She gave you everything.
You can’t just dump the poor girl for a girl who just joined us… A devil you’ve known since is better than the angel you just met. You need to wise up guy!” Samuel said now raising his voice.
“Chill bruh” don’t create a scene here. “I’ve got Tunmise covered. I’ll tell her I’m no longer interested in her and we’ll both go our different ways” I finalized and got up.
I went straight to Ayokanmi’s table and engaged her in a discussion.
“Good morning pretty” I grinned, winking at her.
“Good morning” Ayokanmi replied not even looking at me. She continued eating.
“Uhm, I’m Oluwatimileyin Turner your classmate and I’d love t…”
“Excuse me, as you can see I’m eating. I’d really love if you can excuse me”
“Ohh… I’m sorry” I said feeling bad then left her table. I made a wicked gesture at her like I meant to say “you, I’ll get you.”
I signalled to Samuel to meet me in class and he came along almost instantly. I met Tunmise on the way out with some of her friends on their way to the cafeteria. Although we all come to eat together during break but I went there without her just to satisfy my selfish desire of getting to meet Ayokanmi.
Tunmise walked up to me “hey Timmy, what’s up?” She said and gave me a tight hug that the air between us started to suffocate.
“I’m good” I said and tried to push her away from me.
“Timileyin, what’s wrong with you lately? You’ve changed. Drastically!” Tunmise said looking quite confused “you don’t talk to me? You now avoid me like I’m one kind of plague… you no longer reply the letters I sent to you during prep. Or am I not the love of your life again?” Tunmise asked with tears now pouring out freely from her face like an opened dam.
“You don’t need all these” Samuel said softly In a bid to calm her down so as not to create a scene in front of everyone.
“I saw the way you look at the new girl in class today Timmy. Instantly, I knew what was on your mind. Are you now tired of me?” She asked rhetorically.
“Ifemi, I wasn’t seeing someone else and I’m not tired of you. I’m all yours. Maybe you’re just hallucinating” I said trying to calm her down. I drew her closer and hugged her after all, I am way taller than her so I had my chin above her head. She poured her tears on my chest.
“Timmy, I’d love to show you something during prep class tonight come and meet me at Block B, room seven” she sniffed and gave me a peck before we both left for class.
I could remember quite well, the first time I had sex with Tunmise. That was also the day I deflowered her although, it was not intentional.
It was towards the end of second term in SS2 when Tunmise walked up to me while I was having my tennis training at the sports hall she whispered into my ears “I’d love to show you something” she then signaled to me to come along. We had just started dating then.
I followed Tunmise through a bushy narrow part which lead to the staff quarters. We entered a building which wasn’t occupied by anyone. It was the last building on that row. No one wanted to stay there because it was built faraway from the other staff quarters and because of the fear of dangerous reptiles.
“Tunmise is a good girl” I said trying to calm myself although really scared. We entered the building, Tunmise dragged me into a room well ventilated enough and shut the door behind.
“This is some kind of weird place but probably the best place” She patted me on the back and starts to take off her clothes………..
