Story 1

The Shy Model

Once upon a time, there was a very very shy model, moi! I could not catwalk, I could not do my makeup and I was very very shy!

I used to live in a very small village then, studying and preparing for my exams. my room mate was called Ijeoma, we went to classes together, then I was preparing for my pre science examination to later become a medical doctor.

I studied really hard! I went to the university to study, sometimes, I walk thirty minutes going, and thirty minutes coming back. I was truly a great student and loved studying.

When ever I return so late in my little tiny bedroom then, my room mate Isioma would still be awake waiting for me. I always told her , do not worry about me, but no, she said to me, Patience, always come back home early, its better.

Emeka, was my college friend then, sometimes we studied together, there are certain subjects I did not understood, Emeka helped me out. Sometimes, me and Emeka would study in the classroom alone till midnight. After studying real hard with Emeka in the classroom, i would walk back home, sometimes Emeka, would excort me back to my room, sometimes i did walk alone.

Next day, I went to school, the classroom was filled up, one of my class mate whispered to my ears, she said, Patience, we have some visiting lecurers from the neighbouring university. I was so excited, because I learnt then that visiting lecturers were more kind, gave better lessons by the previously graduated student. So I was eager to meet the lecturers.

The next day, I woke up, took my birth, dressed up and hurriedly prepared for school. when I got outside of my big compound, my landlady was sweeping the big compound I was living in, I said to her, good morning ma, she replied to me, good morning my daughter, she asked me, how are you? I Sid fine, thank you. I ran to the university. I sat on the front sit, waiting eagerly for the visiting lecturers to arrive. Few moments later, the visiting lecturer arrived into the classroom, immediately, everybody stood up, and said, good morning aunty, she replied, good morning class, how are you all? we all said fine, thank you, immediately we sat down, I brought out my book from my schoolbag, grabbed my pen and immediately started writing.

She thought us chemistry, she was such a brilliant lecturer and also very beautiful, after her lessons, the male lecturer walked in and thought us mathematics. The lectures was very nice and later in the afternoon, I went to a nearby canteen to buy lunch. I bought egg roll and coca- cola, after lunch, I went back to class. Around 4pm in the afternoon, I decided to walk back to school. On my way walking back home, a young lady stopped me, her name was Agatha, she said to me, Patience, I remember you, we are classmates. there is this upcoming miss campus that is coming up, I would like you to contest, you look so beautiful, you have long legs, pretty smile, and a nice figure, I said to her , that you ver much, I blushed a little, she gave me her number, she asked me to think carefully about the offer, I said ok, no problem, thank you. I said to her bye bye.

Few days later, I called the lady back on my new triumph phone, I told her , I am very interested in contesting for the beauty pageant. she was very pleased with my call and later that day, she invited me back to her home.

When I got to her bedroom, I met two other ladies with her at home, they brought out several beautiful dresses from their closet and they asked me to try it on, I was very very shy to get undressed, I asked the ladies to look to the other side of the room so that I quickly undress. I pulled off my jeans and my t-shirt, and tried out the long beautiful evening dresses. I called her name, Nkechi, look, I have the dress on now, she smiled and called the attention of the two other ladies whom went outside to buy banana and groundnut, wow, they said, omalicha, means beautiful. I smiled and sat down, greening from ear to ear, I was so thrilled, first time to have tried out such a beautiful long dinner dress. Nkechi sat me down and told me about the upcoming beauty pageant, she said I would be one of the contestant, and three other ladies, I was going to wear a very tiny bikini in front of lots of people, no, I said, I can’t wear that, what if my mummy sees it, or my daddy or my sister, she said it does not matter, it has to be very tiny and skimpy so that I can win the love of the audience.

The three ladies were so generous, they contributed money together and they asked me to join them to the nearby market in Awka to buy me more items that would make me look more stylish and glamorous, first, I declined, I said to them, please do not spend your money on me, you are just a student like me, and we all are managing to survive, one of the ladies said to me , never mind, my daddy is very rich and I have enough money and I am willing to spend any amount on you and make sure you win this beauty pageant. I was very surprised how generous she is. After a while, I was convinced and she decided to spend a lot of money on me. So we went to the market in Awka, she bought me lots of jewelries, headscarf , traditional outfits, makeup items, cosmetics and much more.

We got back from the market few moments later, and Nkechi said to me, Patience, these are the lovely cloths , all for you. You can take it home with you, next day, please come to my room with the bikini, dresses and traditional outfits, I shall personally teach you how to catwalk. So the next morning, I took my bath, prepared my simple meal income noodles, turn on the generator , uncle Joseph bought for me in Asaba, a small model generator, I quickly eat my income noodles and ran to Nkechi’s house. When I got to Nkechi’s bedroom, I undressed in her living room, and dressed up in the evening wear, walked to her bedroom and asked her, how does it fit? She said perfect. I smiled, and went back to the living room to try on the second outfit she bought for me, I went to her living room and asked her, how does it fit? she said, wonderful! Wow, I was so thrilled. Last but not the least, I tried out the traditional outfits, then I was already getting exhausted and anxious about the upcoming beauty pageant, she said to me, Patience, not to worry, I am going to teach you all you need to know about this upcoming event. She went to her second bedroom, she brought out a very shiny looking high heel shoes from the brand Chanel, she said, this is the shoes you would be wearing for the beauty pageant, I am going to
