Synopsis – Kilig by Jo Tannah

A chance meeting. A forever kind of romance. Love can happen most unexpectedly

Louie Montenegro works for one of the country’s largest property developers. Although his job demands long hours both in the office and unscheduled work trips all over the country, it’s a job he loves. On his first trip to Bacolod, one of the greenest, competitive, livable and highly urbanized mid-sized cities in the Philippines, he meets Carl delos Santos, a successful businessman in his own right.

At twenty, Carl faced a family-run business in near ruins and the burden of paying off enormous debts. For ten years, he focused all of his attention on reclaiming his family legacy. Now he heads one of the region’s most successful department store chains.

A chance meeting with Louie in a local car wash leads both men to an unanticipated romance. But when Louie’s company recalls him to Manila, he faces a future without Carl. Will Louie choose career over love?

“Uhm…sorry, I was just going to ask if you wanted to have dinner tomorrow? That is, if you’re feeling better?” Carl said in a rush.

Louie’s heart soared, but then recalled Carl mentioning his kids. “Carl, thanks for the invite, but uhm…you need to know something. I’m gay and much as I’d like to know you better, I don’t do straight or married.” He gritted his teeth and waited for the yelling.

At the indrawn breath and silence on the other end of the line, Louie knew his words had surprised Carl. “I’m sorry, Carl. I hope you understand, but if you really want to go to dinner, we can. You just…need to bring your wife along.”

Still nothing from Carl and Louie groaned in embarrassment. Coño, this is embarrassing. The loud laughter coming from the speaker surprised him.

“Lou, I’m not married. Also, I’m gay, or I wouldn’t be asking you out on a date.”

About the author

I am a wife, mother and blogger by day, a writer by night. It can bedifficult to say the least but it is a challenge that keeps me on my toes.

I grew up listening to folk tales my father and nannies told either to entertain us children or to send home a message. These narratives I kept with me and finally I wrote them down in a journal way back when I kept one. Going through junk led to a long forgotten box and in it was the journal. Reading over the stories of romance, science fiction and horror I had taken time to put to paper, brought to light that these were tales I never met in my readings.

The tales I write are fictional but all of them are based on what I grew up with and still dream about. That they have an M/M twist is simply for my pleasure. And I hope, yours as well.
