LIFE OF A SHY GUY (episode 9)

LIFE OF A SHY GUY (episode 9)

I left the restuarant with just
hundred naira. what those
ladies did to me showed that
they have no conscience. They
didn’t consider the fact that I’m a
student. I still thanked God that the
hundred naira left with me would
be enough for me to take a bus back
After lecture for that day, Sharon
reminded me of our tutorial and I
assured her that it would hold. she
said she would be coming to my
place by 6pm. I left the school
immediately to prepare myself
before she comes. I made sure that
everything in my room were well
arranged. I placed the two plastic
chairs in a spot where it would be
comfortable for her, because I don’t
think having it close to my bed
would be comfortable for her.
Just exactly 5:45pm, my phone
started ringing. I picked the call
when I realized Sharon was the
“hello Sharon” i said
“hi Christian. I’m on my way now”
“okay, I’m waiting” I responded
“I will be there in ten minutes” she
“okay” i responded
I ended the calll and took a deep
breath. I assured myself that all
would be well. I had prepared for
this already so I had nothing to be
scared of.
15minutes later, I heard a knock on
my door and I knew she was the
one. ‘Christian you can do this’. I
said to myself as I walked to the
door. I open the door and froze at
the beauty before me. I stared at
her open-mouthed. I knew Sharon is
a pretty lady, but didn’t know she is
as gorgeous as the lady standing at
my door. it was as if she came to
intimidate me with her beauty.
“will you let me in or keep staring at
me” she said when I didn’t say a
word after opening the door.
“sorry” i said and quickly gave way
for her to enter. I locked the door
immediately she entered. I could see
her admiring the beauty of my
“wow! you have a nice place” she
“thanks” I responded
“please have a seat” I said pointing
at the plastic chair in my room.
She ignored the chair I was pointing
at and went to sit on my bed. I
stood at a spot, wondering if I was
supposed to sit beside her on my
bed or just sit on the plastic chair
“won’t you come and sit down let’s
start the tutorial” she said when I
wouldn’t move from the spot I was
“oh sorry” i said and immediately
went to sit on the bed.
I made sure there was a reasonable
distance between us. she brought
out her notebook from her handbag
and move closer to me. Her
closeness made me uncomfortable. I
suddenly became nervous. this was
what I was trying to avoid. I
wouldn’t be able to tutor her if I’m
nervous. she flipped through her
notebook and showed me a
particular topic.
“I want us to start from here. this
particular topic had been giving me
Her face was very close to mine as
she speaks. i tried not to look at her.
I wasn’t even looking at what she
was showing me. I just fixed my
gaze on the two plastic chairs in my
room. she noticed I wasn’t looking
at what she was showing me.
“Christian, are you paying attention
to what I’m saying” she asked
“yes” I said, directing my gaze to the
notebook she was holding.
“so where should we start from?” I
she showed me the topic she wanted
me to teach her.
“okay you want to learn how to use
implicit differentiation to find the
marginal rate of technical
substitution” I said
“yes, but that’s not all. you still have
a lot to teach me, but let’s start from
“okay, where is your pen?” I asked
she gave me her pen and move even
closer to me, making her head to
rest on my shoulder. My room
suddenly became too hot for me to
stay. A hot sweat rolled from my
forehead down to my neck. my
heart was pounding faster.
“can we start” she asked
“okay” I responded
“marginal rate of technical
substitution is also known as slope
of an isoquant” I paused
“okay” I continued
“An isoquant depicts the different
combination of input K and L that
can be used to produce a specific
level of quantity Q” I paused again
“okay” I continued
“one of such…….”
“Christian!” she cut it
“why do you keep saying okay, okay,
okay. I already know all what you
are trying to explain. I want you to
move to the calculation part. that’s
where I’m having problem”
“you see Sharon”I said calmly
“I haven’t been myself since I
returned from school today. I have
been having terrible headache”
“why didn’t you tell me all this
while?” she asked
she placed her hand on my
“have you taking drugs?” she asked
“yes” I responded
“you should have told me so that I
wouldn’t have come. your health is
important and you need to take
good care of yourself. maybe I will
leave and come back tomorrow” she
I heaved a sigh of relief when she
said that.
“okay. I’m really sorry” I apologized
“you don’t have to apologize. your
health comes first”
“thanks for your understanding” I
“okay see you tomorrow” she said
“see you too” I responded
she stood up, carry her bag and left
