EPISODE 4

I woke up very late the
next day. I quickly took
my bath and got prepared
for school. I left home
immediately without having
breakfast. I was supposed to
have lecture by 8:am but it
was already 8:15am. I got to
the building the lecture was
holding and peeped through
the window. The lecture was
already going on and the
lecturer could be seen at the
podium impacting knowledge
on the students with
enthusiasm. Every student
focused there attention on the
lecturer standing close to the
door, and that was exactly the
same place I was supposed to
walk in through. I was sure
everyone would focus there
attention on me when I walk
in, because there's no how I
would walk into that class
without being noticed. I stood
at the window for close to
10minutes trying to come up
with an idea of how I would
walk into the class without
being noticed. I felt a hand on
my shoulder, and I turned to
see my coursemate standing
beside me. I was relieved it
was a guy.

"are you not going in?" he
asked

"I was about going in" I
answered
"are you just coming?" I asked

"yes" he answered

"let's go in before we miss the
important part of the lecture."
he said

"okay" I responded

He walked ahead while I
followed behind him. I tried as
much as possible to hide
behind him as we walked into
the class. I never removed my
gaze from the floor until I sat
down at the back seat. I took a
deep breath and silently
thanked the guy who showed
up when i needed him. I'm not
sure I would have been able to
walk into the class alone. I
would have stayed outside
until the end of the lecture.

The lecturer continued with
the lecture. After few minutes
of listening, I was able to
understand what was being
taught. I was quite good in
maths, and the course that was
being taught was actually
'introduction to mathematics
for economist'. Did I
mentioned earlier that I'm an
economics student.


when the class was over, the
lecturer handed a brown
envelope to our course rep,
which I believed contained our
test script we did in the
previous class. To make matter
worse for me, our course rep
happened to be a lady. I had
never approached her to get
any information from her.
Even when I needed an
important information which I
believed only her could
provide, I still didn't approach
her. Her beauty alone is
intimidating. she distributed
the script back to the students.
just as the scripts went round,
I could hear murmur from
every corner of the class
which means the scores were
very bad. She had already
shared all the scripts but I still
didn't get mine. I wanted to
bring to her notice that I had
not received my script but
didn't know how to approach
her. I only sat on my seat
staring at everyone faces as
they stared at their script with
a frown.

My course rep started walking
towards me, immediately she
was done distributing the
script. I tried not to feel
nervous, because she might
not actually be coming to meet
me. she got to me and sat next
to me. I was very nervous but
tried not to show it.

"Christian how did you do it?"
she asked immediately.

"do what" I asked confused.

she brought out a script and
showed to me.

"while everyone was scoring
less than 10, you scored 23.
How did you do it" she asked

I looked at the script in her
hand and realized it was
actually my script and I scored
23 just like she said. but I still
didn't know why she did not
give me my script when she
was sharing it and had to
bring it to me personally.

"you are really brilliant" she
continued when I didn't
respond

"Anyway, I just want to tell
you that you just officially
made yourself my private
tutor. you will be tutoring me
starting from next week."

My eyes widened in shock
when she said that. Me that
cannot even talk to a lady for a
minute will now sit down for
close to an hour to tutor her.
she better rethink was she just
said. what kind of difficult
position did she want to put
me in. I better look for a way
to decline.

"so how will it be comfortable
for you? will I be coming to
your place for the tutorial, or
you will be coming to my
place?" she asked.

None of the options seem
comfortable for me, I wanted
to say that but dare not say it.

"anyhow you want it" I
answered against my decision.

"Okay, we will be using both
my place and yours for the
tutorial. That would be fairer
right?" she asked

"yes" I answered

Just when I was still dealing
with the lady beside me, Joy
came and joined us. she sat at
my other side, making it two
ladies sitting beside me. I
haven't been myself sitting
beside my course rep, and Joy
had also joined us, making my
blood pressure to rise.

"hi Sharon" Joy greeted our
course rep

"hi Joy" Sharon replied

"Christian how is your body
now?" Joy asked me

"fine" I answered briefly

She saw my script with Sharon
and collected it. she stared at it

"23!" she exclaimed
"Christian you scored 23"

All eyes in class turned to our
direction immediately they
heard my score. I felt
embarrassed at the number of
eyes staring at me.

EPISODE 1

S ometimes I just wonder
why I was created this
way. why I can't seem to
be comfortable when I'm
in the midst of people,
especially ladies. I had been
this way ever since I was a kid.
I'm already on my early
twenties but my issue is not up
getting better. It had even
worsened. I can't believe that
at this stage of my life, I still
don't know how to approach
ladies. I had come in contact
with a number of nice ladies
that I love and would love to
spend the rest of my life with,
but due to my shy nature, I
could not approach them and
had lost them all. I still can't
believe that I'm still a virgin at
this stage of my life. Not that
I'm a saint or something. I had
always wanted to take this
virginity of a thing off me, but
don't know how to go about it.
I had never dated any lady all
my life. I dare not tell my
friends that I'm still a virgin,
because they would all laugh at
me. I always brag about how I
made a lady beg me to get her
laid whenever I'm with them,
but in reality, no such thing
had happened.


I always believed I could cope
with my shy and introverted
nature, but not until I gained
admission into the university.
it was when I gained
admission into the university
that I realized there is place
for people like me in the
university. it's either I blend
in and associate with people or
be forever isolated.


it's been three weeks since I
gained admission into the
university. We had already
completed the registration
process and lectures had also
started. The way I always see
students in my department
discussing and associating
with one another, made me
wondered if they had known
one another already, before
they gained admission. I
wished I could be like them
and interact more with my
coursemate, but my
introverted nature wouldn't
allow me. I always try my best
not to be noticed in class. I
dare not raise my hand to
answer any question asked by
a lecturer, even though I knew
the answer.



One day in class, just
immediately we settled down
for lectures, our introduction
to statistics lecturer, Dr. Mike
walked into the class to
introduce his course. After
5minutes of speaking, he
asked a question which no one
could answer. He was very
disappointed and decided not
to speak further until someone
answer his question. I knew
the answer to Dr. Mike
question but dare not stand up
to answer his question. Just
imagining the number of eyes
that would be boring holes on
my body when I stand to
answer the question could
make my mind go blank.
Dr. Mike stared at us from the
podium while we stared back
at him, with no one making
attempt to answer his
question. After the long silence
in the class, he decided to
speak.


"so out of over a hundred
students in this class, no one
can answer the question I
asked" he said


Everyone in class remained
silent.


"this class can't continue until
someone answer my question.
How am I suppose to teach
you if you don't know the
basic of this course" he said


The class still remained silent.


He stared silently at us. After a
while if silence, an idea
crossed his mind.


"I know what to do" he said
walking closer to us.


"I will start pointing you to
answer the question and once
you fail to give me the right
answer, you will leave this
class and never attend any of
my classes for the rest of this
semester." he said in serious
tone.


A faint murmur could be
heard in the class


"we you all keep shut" he
shouted in angry tone.


The look on his face showed
that he was very serious with
what he said.


I wished someone could just
answer his question and take
me out of the tensed situation
i was in. The class had
suddenly became too hot for
me to stay. I prayed silently
that God should divert the
lecturer's attention away from
anything that would make him
notice me in class. Not that I
didn't know the answer, but I
just couldn't face the whole
class.


I could see the lecturer staring
at everyone faces, looking for
who to point. he stared at my
direction and a shiver went
down my spine. I suddenly
started sweating profusely.


"Hey, you over there" he said
pointing at my direction.


Even though he was pointing
at my direction, I was so sure
he was not pointing directly to
me. because there is no how
he could have pin-point me
out of over a hundred students
in class. so I looked back to
confirm who he was pointing
at. the person he was pointing
at must be behind me.


"why are you looking back?
I'm referring to you" he said
referring to me


"is it me sir?" I asked to be
sure he was referring to me.


"no, it's me" he mimicked me
"come on stand up and answer
my question" he barked.


I suddenly became weak when
I realized he was actually
referring to me. how was I
suppose to stand and answer
question in a class of over
hundred students.


Just as I slowly stood up, I
could see over a hundred eyes
boring holes on my body. I
tried not to turn my head,
because my mind could go
blank if my eyes meet with
any lady in class. I cursed the
devil silently who had
succeeded in putting me in
such situation.


"will you answer my question
or get out of this class" Dr.
Mike barked when I didn't say
anything after a while of
standing


"erm.........erm.........." I
stammered
