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 home.
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 caller.
“hello Sharon” i said
“hi Christian. I’m on my way
“okay, I’m waiting” I
“I will be there in ten
minutes” she said
“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 room.
“wow! you have a nice place”
“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 standing.
“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 headache.”
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”
“yes” I said, directing my gaze to the notebook she was holding.
“so where should we start
from?” I asked
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 there”
“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
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
“why didn’t you tell me all this
while?” she asked she placed her hand on my forehead.
“have you taking drugs?” she
“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 said
I heaved a sigh of relief when
she said that.
“okay. I’m really sorry” I
“you don’t have to apologize. Your health comes first”
“thanks for your
understanding” I said
“okay see you tomorrow” she
“see you too” I responded
she stood up, carry her bag
