My love life

[5/8, 12:59 AM] Xplor Apollo Santiago 💥💥: MY LIFE AS A UNN  SHY GUY 



Sometimes I just wonder why I was created like 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 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 course mate, 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


After 5 minutes 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


"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?” 

Iasked 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


I stammered........

*episode 2

[5/8, 12:03 PM] Xplor Apollo Santiago 💥💥: Stammering could have been my only way to act numb 

But in the view of the event , I was facing dropping out of statistics class.

I had to do something or in other words say something.

The lecturer gave me the eyes and I tried to talk ........

Talking in the presence of men was something I found hard.

I had no option but to state out the answer to question.

The lecturer wasn't surprised when I gave the answer . He was just satisfied. He was satisfied but I wasn't.

I knew that this single action of mine will bring up expected visitors.

I wasn't cut out for this.

I wasn't cut out to be famous.




After that lecture, I left the lecture hall as fast as my feet could push.

I walked as if I was being chased.


As I was about to slide into my lodge , I heard my name.


It took me three seconds to calculate and check within myself.

I asked myself a million and one questions on why or how someone knew me . This person knew my full name.

I knew that I didn't and I haven't spoken to anyone. Talk less of telling someone my name .


After three seconds of contemplation , I decided to turn.

Then I saw who it was.

It wasn't only a person but several person's.

They were three.

The first person was my guy when I was in  high school he was the smartest guys when we were in school.

The girl with him was his friend from where they lived.

Then the next person was a girl too.

I didn't know who she was neither did I care.


When I saw him I was happy. At least I wasn't alone. We talked for some time.

The girl with him introduced herself as his friend. The other one also introduced her self.

But I didn't care to know




It is better I describe this friend of mine.

He was tall , handsome, had the hair of a Brazilian man.

He had all the properties.

He even has an accent.

He uses American accent

When asked he would say that he grew up with Americans.

His parents lived in Lagos State, Nigeria. The area they lived were occupied with American investors.

Not mention that he was rich and muscular.

His voice can melt down 😁

Sha let me not continue with this.

Sha we shared the same characteristics. Based on accent and intelligence and knowledge.

Sha we were friends .


But the only difference was his affluence.

They usually called him baba for the girls , he was perfect almost in all fields. This is becoming irritating , let me stop.


After 30 minutes of  talking and speech  he told me  the the reason he came.

He told me that the question I answered was hard for him to understand , he asked for my help on mathematics and physics.

I agreed on that.

Then the girl spoke up.....



She said she also needed help.

But , normally I would relent 

But I didn't know what made me to agree ....

OMG I was in trouble.















[5/8, 8:33 PM] Xplor Apollo Santiago 💥💥: Well it tooke me sometime to actually answer myself induced questions.

I firstly didn't get to know who this girl actually was..

And from the record  Samuel, who is my guy was known for his promiscuity and roggedity

And there wasn't any chance that this girl was his babe.

She was too put and quiet.

Acting like, am so ashamed to say , but she acting like  me.acting , strange and timid and like a fresher. It didn't take long before I realized that she was crushing on me.

Sha I can't deny the fact that I was a bit shy but very handsome.

I was the hotspot for girls, this was when I was in secondary school.

But due to my shy and timid nature , I would always deny all the advances projected towards me.

And I was afraid of being a father at an early age.

Talk more of my dreams being crushed . And also I was a Christian.

Sha this girl looked like a million bucks to me.

Sha I can't qualify who I just met.

Who knew, she could be my *penguin* 



Well , after realizing that I entered into a contract with this girl , I was ready for the consequences.

And if by chance I impregnate her.....😏😏😏

Na to dey run 

No need to think to much.


I haven't gisted you on how we finally bonded.

Not what you are thinking oooh.

Like how we became tight friends.



Knowing her was like a turn in my shy and timid life 

And for the record, She was a stern Christian.

Always on the prayer mood.

I feel bad for making her open or maybe let me say making her famous.

She actually likes having her space.

But I haven't given you her name and her background.


Well her background is sweeeet..I drew the *e*  part for a reason.



Her Father is an importer , a Christian to the core, resides at  the UK he only comes home with there mum on celebrations periods.

She is the last born, very jovial when she feels comfortable with you.

She is a melancholic , hardly angry and very hard working.

She goes by the name *Veronica.* 

Named after her favorite aunt.

Sha that's a story for another day.

All you need to know.


Back to where I was.

She was good at maths and she was also good at Cooking 🙂

The food dey sweet my Belly.

She was also punctual.

Usually forces me to come for lectures. And she made my roommate believe that I was a bad nigga.

She never stopped her attitude even till now......





We usually arranged my teaching her on Saturdays.

When I was free 

After which she brought her friends and others who came.

And they all paid me.

Easy 💰 money.

Things went well till I began to cheat on her .

We had this tight relationship but I was looking for the main koko.

Sha it wasn't my fault.

I was deceived and almost..







What did you expect.

They no fit rape me.

Fine boy like me🤣🤣🤣


Sha I .........


Her friend

[5/11, 3:21 PM] Xplor Apollo Santiago 💥💥: Dad tell me more , Victor said.

Son cool down , in need to place the story well.

Are telling victor that story , Veronica said.

Yes , what Happened??  Is it wrong to say a story, Sha victor let me continue from where I stopped.

Where did I stop??.

You stopped the moment you talked on you guys breaking up or as they call it ," breakfast".

Hahahaha , we all laughed 

Veronica decided not to laugh for the sake of the bad memories it brought to her.

She vehemently left the sitting room.

Ian or victor who is also my last child and third child of the family

Still in adolescent period of his life. A very smart boy .

A product of beauty..




People say he got his mental and facial characteristics from me.

They are not wrong .

Not just That.

He also had an accent, particularly the British accent.

We lived at Canada for some years till a disaster chased us back home .

That offered him an opportunity to learn the British accent.


Let me continue from where I stopped.


During my third year in the university , I met Veronica's friend .

She goes by the name omolola.

Yoruba indigene of ogun state.

And I usually tutor her in various subjects.

She gets tutored for a pay.

Those days I didn't give knowledge for free.

After six months of my tutoring her 

She began to push closer to me.

Always trying to have all the attention

And for the sake of all things good.

I actually had a flair for Yoruba girls.

I didn't know why but it was just a feeling.

She would always want to get my attention.

She continued this for line a month.

Veronica wasn't happy with this .

She noticed it and shunned me from taking such actions.

Sha , another quality I have is stubbornness.

I didn't heed her warnings till she stopped texting me, calling me or even talking to me.

I wasn't feeling the effect of the snubbing I received till the day I was drugged 






I once mentioned that Veronica was a stern Christian.

Sha made me closer to God.

I even went to bring souls to God.


But still , *the spirit is* *weak but the flesh is*.


Wait how was it said again

Sha we mueve.



When she left me for some weeks , I began to bend away from God.

Omolola , who was a bad girl usually  hosts party's which I always attended.

It was going well for me till the day I was drugged.



That very night , I was at omolola's party .

 Dripping and drinking and wasting my sense away.

That night Veronica came to see me and apologize for her actions.

But she was told by my roommate that I went for a party at omolola's house.

Omolola had rich and careless parents.


She decided to come to the party against her will.


As I was busy dancing and jazzing like a fool.

Omolola drugged my drink .

She put a sleeping pill in it.

But the wise man ones said.

 *A  cow that has no tail* *will have his God*  *protecting it from flies*
