This is really great and inspiring. I am a lil bit shy, but I guess with this I would definitely overcome it. There's no harm in trying. Thumbs up infant and all other guys that made the thread interesting, you guys just lifted up my spirit.

Re: Life Of A Shy Guy by IBBG(m): 11:57am On Jan 10
quite captivating and interesting as well as easy to relate if you are an introvert just like myself. I've overcome most of mine like relating to girls, but the only one left that i am still trying to overcome is stage fright or public speaking in large gatherings. I hope to be as fluent as obama when addressing the public, so help me God.

FINAL EPISODE



make sure you just don't read
this story, work on yourself,
aim to be great and you will be
great.



THE END!!!!

Speaking about working on oneself, I noticed you didn't mentioned the title of one of the book given to you by Sylvia. You only mentioned one-Secret of ages. Sylvia didn't touch your life, tell her she touch my life and many other shy people reading your story. I have lost very crucial chances of being in a rewarding and lasting relationship from girls. Now I am thirty I wonder, if it is too late to make that needed correction. Shy guys should learn from this story.

FINAL EPISODE


dedicated to everyone who followed this story from the beginning to this point.




E veryone gave the guy
on stage a big round of applause
when he was done. he walked
back to sit on the seat he was
previously occupying.
The M.C went back on stage
with a book in his hand.

"that was a great speech" the
M.C said
"now the next student on the
list is Christian Owen"

My heart paused immediately I
heard my name. I slowly stood
up and walked to the stage. I
turned and face the crowd.
thousands of eyes were
staring at me. my heart was
pounding.

Christian you can do this. I
assured myself. Christian be
focus. I said to myself. I stared
from one person to the other
in the auditorium. my eyes
suddenly caught Sylvia sitting
at the back seat. she was
staring deeply at me. she stood
up from her seat and walked
to the front. she located a seat
in a spot where I could get a
clearer view of her and sat
down. she fixed her gaze on
me but she wasn't smiling. I
could get a clearer view of her
from where I was standing.
she was wearing a blue skirt
and a white top. her white top
had the words 'you can do it'
inscribed on it.' I needed no
one to tell me that she
purposely wore that top just to
encourage me. even when
she's angry with me, she still
came to encourage me. I
couldn't hide the smile on my
face. I was smiling broadly.
though, she didn't smile, but
she never took her gaze off
me. Sylvia is truly one in a
million. sometimes, you
wouldn't know how valuable
someone is to you, until you
have lost that person. Sylvia is
more than valuable to me. I
wouldn't know what my life
would become if I lose
someone like Sylvia. it will be
very regrettable. I better set
things straight before it's too
late. I will surely go to her
immediately after this event
and clear things up. the words
that were inscribed on her
dress boost my confidence.
'thank you Sylvia for being
there for me'

I turned my gaze away from
her and faced the crowd with
confidence.
I started by recognizing the
presence of the minister of
finance, the minister of
education, the vice chancellor
of the university, and every
other high profile individuals
in the auditorium. without
wasting any time, I went
straight to my reason of
standing there. I spoke
courageously. I didn't miss a
single word I had memorized.
I didn't paused for a second. I
delivered the speech with
confidence.

Everyone in the auditorium
gave me a standing ovation
when I was done. I felt on top
of the world. the smile on my
face was visible. I needed no
one to tell me that I did a very
good job.
if I could stand in
front of a large crowd like this
and speak confidently, then
there is no where I couldn't
stand to speak. if I could start
a conversation with the lady I
saw in the faculty of
engineering, and also maintain
a conversation with the lady I
saw at the garden of eden,
then there is no lady I can't
speak to. if I could be in a
company of ladies like Sylvia,
Sharon, Kate, Joy, among other
and still interact freely with
them, then I think I'm no
longer that shy guy . there is
still one thing left for me to
do, and I will surely do it once
I leave this stage.

I turned my gaze to where
Sylvia was sitting and saw her
leaving the auditorium. so she
actually came here just for me.
even when she was angry with
me, she still came to support
me. I need to set things
straight right now or I might
never get another opportunity.
I left the stage and followed the
direction Sylvia took. I went
outside the auditorium but
couldn't find Sylvia. I search
in all the corners outside the
auditorium but still couldn't
find her. maybe she would
have gone home already. I
have to go to her place and set
things right. I have no reason
to remain in the auditorium. I
have already delivered my
speech so I'm free to go. I need
to be at Sylvia's place right
now. I have this fear that I
might not have the
opportunity to set things
straight again if I waste
anymore time.

I quickly rushed to the bus
park. I took a bus that will
convey me directly to Sylvia's
house.

I got to her place and stood
beside her door. I prayed
silently that things should go
well. I knocked softly on the
door but didn't get any
response. I knocked again and
waited patiently for her to
open the door. she opened the
door a minute later. she glared
at me when she realized I was
the one at the door. she
wanted to lock the door back
but I quickly held the handle
of the door and prevent her
from locking it. she tried to
forcefully remove my hand
from the door handle but
couldn't. after several attempt,
she finally left the door opened
and walked into her room. I
entered her room and saw her
facing the wall. she was
backing me. I walked to her
and stood behind her.

"Sylvia I........" I paused as I
couldn't find the right word to
say.

I held her right hand from
behind but she forcefully freed
her hand from my hold.

"don't touch me" she barked.

I tried to hold her again but
she refused

"I'm warning you, don't touch
me" she barked again.

I stood silently behind her, not
knowing what to do next. after
a while of silence, I finally
spoke.

"Sylvia I......."

"don't call me" she cut in
immediately.

I didn't know what next to do.
I stood behind her without
saying a word. when she
wouldn't turn to face me, I
decided to do it my way.
I quickly grabbed her hand,
turned her forcefully to face
me, drew her closer to myself
and planted a kiss on her lips.
she froze immediately I did
that. she stared at me open-
mouthed and couldn't say a
word. I didn't take my gaze off
her. we stared intensely at
each other. after a while of
silence, I finally spoke.

"I can't hide it anymore. my
heart might just explode if I
continue keeping it to myself.
I have to let it out" I paused
and stared deeply at her.

"I love you Sylvia" I let it out

she stared at me with so much
emotion. her face suddenly
curved in a smile. she drew
closer to me and wrapped her
hands round my neck.

"I love you too Christian. I
love you so much" she
responded.

we stared silently at each
other. her hands were still
wrapped around my neck.

"I am......." I wanted to speak
but she quickly planted a kiss
on my lips. we kissed
passionately. the kiss was so
intense that I lost control of
myself. I found my hands
moving towards her thigh. all
of a sudden, I raised the white
top she was putting on above
her abdomen region. she
didn't stop me. she didn't even
free me from her hold. she
wrapped her hand tightly
around my neck. her bosom
was resting on my chest. our
lips were still entangled. she
dragged me towards the
direction of her bed. all of a
sudden, I found myself lying
on her bed while she was lying on
my body. one thing led to the
other, but all other things that
transpired between us in her
room, should be left for the
imagination. I knew very well
that once I leave her place, I
would no longer be that shy
guy.

I won't say that I have totally
overcame shyness, but one
thing I know for such is that, I
would no longer be that shy
guy who couldn't speak in
crowd, who couldn't talk to
ladies and who couldn't do
things he wish to do. because
all that would be a thing of the
past.

if someone as shy as Christian
could control his shy nature,
then there's no one that can't
control his. atleast to a level
that it won't affect their social
life. don't allow that negative
voice to always dictate how
you leave your life. don't allow
that voice to affect your social
life. when you feel like doing
something, do it without
listening to that negative
voice. if you love a lady, tell
her how you feel. don't be
scared of rejection. if you
couldn't tell a lady you love
how you feel about her, you
will only regret it later. if you
love a lady and couldn't tell
her how much you love her,
then you are selfish. do you
know what those words could
do to that lady's life, if only
you can tell her. don't limit
yourself.

being an introvert does not
limit you from achieving your
dream. it is believed that
introverts are deep thinkers. if
only you can bring those
things you have in mind to
reality, the world would be
better than this. the world
needs you. the world needs to
hear from you. don't just leave
those great things you have in
mind to remain in your mind,
just because you are scared of
failure. bring it to reality.
Everything you see in the
world today, was once in
someone's mind. the cars,
plane, buildings and every
other things you see today,
was once an imagination of
people which they chose to
bring to reality. if those people
decided not to bring what they
have in mind to reality, then
this things wouldn't have been
in existence.

don't limit yourself. the world
needs to hear from you. don't
allow that talent of yours to be
wasted because you think you
won't succeed if you give it a
try. you won't know how good
you are at something until you
give it a try. don't allow your
shy nature to limit your
potential. you are born to be
great. be great!!!!

make sure you just don't read
this story, work on yourself,
aim to be great and you will be
great.



THE END!!!!

EPISODE 27

Dedicated to Gucciqueen38




I left the garden and went
straight home. I got home
exactly 5:55pm. I lay on
my bed to rest a bit
before Sharon comes. any
moment from now, she will be
here. I thought

I waited for the next 30
minutes but she didn't show
up. I thought she said she was
on her way already. I waited
for the next ten minutes but
she still didn't show up. I took
my phone from my bed to call
her. immediately I took my
phone, her call came in. I
picked the call immediately.

"hello Sharon, where are you?"
I asked

"I'm very sorry Christian. I
won't be coming anymore. I
got a call from the course
adviser that all course rep
should assemble in school. I'm
on my way to the school now"
she said

"you are going back to the
school by this time. isn't it late
already. can't they wait until
tomorrow" I said

"have you forgotten that
tomorrow is Saturday." she
said

"yes that's true, but whatever
they have to tell you guys
should have waited until
Monday" I said

"it can't wait. it's very urgent.
it's concerning the event our
department is organising on
Monday. The HOD wants to
pass all necessary information
to us." she responded

"oh I see. till Monday then" I
said.

"yes. I will talk to you later"
she said

"okay" I responded and ended
the call.

I took a deep breath.

' the day of the event is
already very close. so by
Monday, I will be standing in
front of a very large crowd.' I
thought. I don't even know if
I'm prepare to face the crowd.
I have never faced such crowd
before, so I don't know what it
feels like to be standing in
front of a large crowd. I have
already memorized all what I
will say, but I can't be so sure
that my mind will not go blank
when I see the large crowd.
can I actually do this? could it
be that my mind is only trying
to discourage me. could it be
that discouraging voice that is
speaking to me now. Sylvia
said that I shouldn't listen to
the voice, because it will only
get me nervous. talking of
Sylvia, I haven't seen her since
the last incident. I have to go
and explain things to her.

I stood up from my bed, took
my phone and left my room
immediately.

twenty minutes later, I was
standing beside Sylvia's door. I
waited for the next 5 minutes
before I finally knocked.

"hold on I'm coming" I heard
from within.

she opened the door a minute
later. I could see anger visibly
on her face the moment she
saw.

"Sylvia I am.............."

she entered her room back and
slammed the door without
allowing me to complete my
sentence.
I waited to see if she would
open the door but she didn't. I
waited for the next 30 minutes
but she still didn't open the
door. when I was tired of
waiting, I turned and left her
place.

I got home 30 minutes later. I
lay on my bed immediately I
entered my room.

'Sylvia is very angry with me.
I need to look for a way to
make her forgive me. she
doesn't want to even see my
face. let me just leave her for
now. I will talk to her later,
when I believe she won't get
angry. for now, let me just
focus my mind on the speech I
will deliver on Monday. I need
to prepare myself very well so
that I won't mess up.

I took the book Sylvia gave me
and busied myself with it
immediately. I opened to the
page that contain step by step
guide on how to overcome
stage fright. the book has
really helped me, and I believe
if I follow the guideline in the
book, I will be able to face the
crowd on Monday.

I read the book until 1am. I
finally slept off when I was
tired of reading, with the aim
to continue when I wake up.

I woke up very early. I quickly
took my bath and had
breakfast. I busied myself with
the book when I was done with
all my chores. I made sure I
practice some tips as I read. I
didn't do anything else aside
from reading and rehearsing.

The next day which was
Sunday, I continued same way.
I read until my vision became
blur. then it occurred to me
that I have over read.
I couldn't sleep that night,
because I knew that once I
wake, it would be the day of
the event.
I was more than ready for the
event, but I was still very
scared. I was scared because it
would be my first time of
facing such crowd. I was sure I
will do very fine if I follow the
guidelines in the book, but
that discouraging voice
wouldn't let me be. it kept
sounding it clearly to me that I
will embarrass myself. the
voice was doing no good to
me, because I was already
having headache. I tried to get
some sleep for me to wake up
early but couldn't. after 30
minutes of restlessness, I
finally slept off.

I woke up hours later. I turned
my gaze to the wall clock and
realized it was 6:25am. the
event will begin by 11am.
there won't be lectures, so my
only reason of going to school
was because of the event.
I had my bath and got ready
for the event. I made sure I
had enough breakfast. I left
home exactly 10am.

I got to school 30 minutes
later. I went straight to the
place the event will hold. the
event will actually hold in the
school main auditorium. the
number of people I saw when I
got to the main auditorium
made my heart missed a beat.
the crowd was more than I
expected. the auditorium was
already filled up when I got
there. the stage was already set
for the event, and I could see
some important figure already
sitting on the high table. the
minister of finance was
already seated, and the
minister of education was also
seen sitting beside the minister
of finance. the vice chancellor
of the university was also seen
on the high table. some of the
lecturer in our department
were seen occupying the front
seat in the auditorium. the
other two students that will
also deliver speech were also
seen occupying the front seat.
about ten thousand people
were occupying the seats in
the auditorium, waiting
patiently for the event to
begin. the M.C was also seen
standing on stage.
I quickly went to sit beside the
other two students that will
deliver speech.

Five minutes later, the event
began. The M.C started by
recognizing the presence of all
important figure in the
auditorium.
After five minutes later, the
HOD went up stage to
introduce the event properly.
some lecturers also went up
stage one after the other to
speak.

now, it was time for the
students to deliver there
speech.

The M.C called the first student
and he went up stage to
deliver his speech. I was really
nervous. my heart was
pounding. I didn't pay
attention to what the guy on
stage was saying. I might be
called next. can I do this? I
asked myself.

Everyone gave the guy on
stage a big round of applause
when he was done. he walked
back to sit on the seat he was
previously occupying.
The M.C went back on stage
with a book in his hand.

"that was a great speech" the
M.C said
"now the next student on the
list is Christian Owen"

My heart paused immediately I
heard my name.
