She is one in a million, to him.
Her Innocence, coupled with the seething anger outbursts she had periodically all in one homogenous mixture with her compassion and willingness to sacrifice herself for others…
Tade's body stirs as it sinks further down, his muscles twitching for a brief second. Water waves ripple away from him and the , the entire waterscape goes silent and motionless as the sight of the bottom of the water body comes into view.
But, Trade can neither see nor feel any of these. Rather, his mind is else where, locked up in the cascading memories his mind plays out by and by.
And just then, a new memory floats by his mindscape once more. It is the memory of the time when Deola did run away from him, in fright.
"Ahh.. So cold!" Deola, in the black leggings and white tank top grumbles and unconsciously takes a step back away from the lake, without looking back as she, hugs herself tig
And that name is…Deola!Rising up suddenly to his feet, Tade frowns, trying to recollect what happened to her and as he remembers, his pupils widen and then…BOOOOOOMMMMMM!His entire body explodes with massive momentum, shooting forward like a torpedo as he tears the water resistance like it is nothing.For only one name is on his mind.And that name is…Deola, his girl!"Noooo…" Tade grits, his hands digging through the front of him, giving him a spear like stance as he rips through the inner water resistance.He remembers the painful memory of how he had messed up by letting Deola know all too earlyBut, now, he muses, maybe he is not so wrong after all.The only persons wrong here are the people who try to hurt her.To hurt Deola…To hurt his girl.Tade's face contorts into a tighter scowl, his eyes almost glowing a faint green haze of light while his body speardives forward."Not an
The lake is really quiet and on the outside the sun is rising up, which indicates a new day. Apparently it's been over 24 hours ,since Tade had gone in search of the spirit pills pills.Birds sail across the air, over the silent waves, basking in the light of a new day as a flex their wings all about. And just then, a large flash of green luminescent light erupts into view in a distance over the lake.To the regular human, it can be considered as a glitch of nature, lightning without clouds, but to the inhabitants below the lake it signifies the return of one, Tade Submerius, the fallen prince.Out of the blues, the fallen prince staggers from the lotus formation of the vanishing light inside the bubble of his residence and then, the door of the cottage opens wide."Ah… if it isn't the lovestruck prince. How did it go" It is Jaeger with his eyes closed as if he is in deep meditation."It went as fine as it could although I could not secure en
However, just after Tunrayo knocks, she looks at the SUV, one eye narrowed, her body moving there.However, just then, the door opens. And as it opens, her attention is diverted from the strange sighting she did see behind the SUV, the trail of a person's footwear.
And if it was of any way beneficial to her friend, then, she...She would have to take it.“Please, make sure you are not seen! I highly doubt that her parents would approve of what I want you to do. But, don't worry, I promise, its only to save her. I can't bring myself to hurt my Deola...” Tade's voice drops considerably low towards the end of his words.“Wait, what do you mean?” Tunrayo stops short, her hand on the door handle.“You're wasting time, Tunrayo. Come on out, I am just in front of the door.” Tade impatiently speaks, the effect of it adding haste and stealth into Tunrayo as she begins to hurry away.However, Tunrayo pauses her motion, some few steps away from the door. She stands now in a corridor, the floor of it coated by white tiles.Opposite the room she exited now is another door, the entrance to what she already knows to be A
"Tunrayo, what are you doing?"Tunrayo is startled and turns back, only to behold the faces of extremely pissed and horrified parents of Deola, their body frames standing at the wide open door."Shit… I didn't close the door." Tunrayo whispers, her face ghostly.****"You heard my husband. What did you give to our daughter?" Deola's mother chirps in, in support of her husband's earlier question, her eyes furiously staring down the girl who has their daughter in the hands."A-ah… I…" Tunrayo stammers, not knowing how to proceed with all of it or how to even get deal with questions asked."You what?" Richard clenched his fist. "I have had a hard time accepting that you are behind this…""She is, honey!" Tolani cuts in with pouting lips."...but not with what you just did." Richard advances to the bed, covering up the paces in few strides."You even cleared the salt that we put down there? Why would you do tha
"I've had enough of you, human. Enough with your tampering with my brother's life."These are the last words the lady in the brown jean shirt styled gown hears before her world goes black.And then, the last sound she hears is…BANNNNGG!Intense ache tore through a head like a crazed beast, claws ferociously scrapping at a point with determined dark intents to rip out her brain matter on the spot.The hot searing pain follows, drilling through her head like a piece of hot nail driven into human flesh, deep down in one thrust into the muscles, messed up with blood and torn sinews and in this case, through her skull.Sharp and fierce, the pain is not relenting, accompanied by a now thudding headache. The lady feels thrust suddenly, her tongue dry and parched and longs for a chilled drink to soothe the burning longing in her throat.She feels her body no longer depending on her feet but rather begins to tilt back, falling down and down.T
"Save it, young lady. I don't want to see you around my daughter ever again.Let today be the last time you would ever be here, understood?"The man in white vest and green-blue checked pyjamas trousers who Tunrayo has come to know as the father of her best friend, Deola, says to her.It is shocking and really painful, Tunrayo shudders, as the very same thing she did want to avoid has been set upon her.But how would she have had the slightest idea that in her desperation, the man she sought to find would be long gone? She, out of loss of words to say and based on the urgency of the bombarding questions, had thought that things would mellow down if she had just shown them the ‘Mr Poisedon’; but, how mistaken she is.The man who is Richard, the father of Deola, turns his back to her as he opens the door, leaving her outside after the warning.Oh, if her mum did hear this, Tunrayo sniffs, she’d say that she told her, di
Wait, till someone did stand up. And while he is at that, Tade leans back on the plastic chair, he'd think about the only girl that really matters to him.Deola Aderigbe."Please, Dee… Come back to me!"He rubs the back of his neck as he shuts his eyes from the physical happenings around him, bringing his thoughts to focus on just only one girl.The girl who had made him smile these few times.And by the gods, Tade smiles, it did feel like he had met her since an entire century. Whereas, it only had been less than three weeks that he did stumble into them.'That Girl… hm!' Tade puts both elbows of his hands on the table, crossing the fingers into each other to form a sort of pad for the chin of his seemingly pleasant face.'Gods… What am I doing? This is crazy. Sitting for an exam for a human girl?Geez… If they heard back at Atlantis, I'd be done for.' Tade snorts out in amusement, his eyes ti
