Adventures of corper john….by felnino part 2

​Part 2
Joy was so scared that her heart pumped like a

pumping machine, she had different questions

racing through her mind like Who were these

people? Where are they being taken to?

What do they want from them? Why were they the

chosen ones?

John noticed that the bus suddenly slowed down

and took a turn, now there were off the tarred

road, he knew because he could tell from the buses

sound and movement, he heard one of the armed

men talking about how much they will be paid for

bringing ten people, one of the men said If na

100,000 naira per person then e mean say na one

million naira we dey collect, now John knew where

they were being taken to, they were going to be

sold by the armed men to ritualists who would pay

them 100,000 naira for each of them, TJ’s worst

fears were confirmed as he also heard their

conversation, is this how his life is going to end? He

thought, the bus had continued along the rough

road for 30 minutes where it had taken different

turns than they could count, they drove for another

20 minutes before the bus finally came to a stop.

They were there, John thought, they were at the

place where their lives might end, their blindfolds

were removed and they were ordered to get down

from the bus, as they got down lo and behold they

were in the middle of nowhere inside a very thick

forest, right in front of them stood an uncompleted

building with hefty and heavily armed men, they

were about 7 in number, one of the guards said

they don come o, the leader of the armed men

then ordered them to line up in a straight line and

move into the building, John wondered how any

human being in their right senses would think of

building a house in such a thick forest in the first

place, as they were moving into the building, John

noticed that a car was parked beside it, it was a

Range Rover SUV, John quickly crammed the

number of the vehicle AA 885 AKD as they were

about to enter into the building John thought, was

that the last car he was going to see? Well if it was,

it was a nice one.

They entered the building which was dark and damp

and smelled of death, escaping was not an option as

they were surrounded by hard looking, heartless

and hefty armed men, they were lead to a dark

room they called the dungeon, where they were

chained. TJ said to John ‘on the bright side we’ll

pray to God for forgiveness and end up in heaven ‘

prayers! John hadn’t thought of that, he began to

pray to God for forgiveness, he asked God to find

them a way out of this smelly, dark dungeon, he

had not finished praying when one man walked in

carrying injections all filled with a substance that

neither of them knew about, the man began to

inject each of them with the substance, as he was

injected, John began to recite psalm 23, he had not

reach ‘thou anoint my head with oil ‘ when he

suddenly felt dizzy, as his eyes were about to close

the last thing he saw was Joy who was already



It was almost evening when they woke up, they

must have slept for about 5 hours, it was then John

noticed that he was Unclad and all his hair was

shaven, not only him but all the guys who were in

the dungeon, he looked towards Joy’s direction, she

was untouched and so were the remaining women

in the dungeon, he and Joy’s eyes met, he was a

little shy, he liked the idea of being Unclad in front

of her but not under such circumstances, their

clothes were in the center of the room, John felt

uneasy, he was not used to being Unclad in front of

women, but he knew TJ was, he had to find a way to

free himself and get out of this mess along with Joy

and TJ at least, he looked at the far end of the

room and noticed that some of them were

weeping, John studied the room for escape points,

the window was not an option as it was high, very

small and had a hard burglary barricade in front of

it, he looked up at the ceiling, the door was not an

option either as two armed men were outside

guarding it, he looked at Joy then he had an idea …

Clothes for Men

Door Lock

A Key Lock

John looked at Joy’s hair and noticed that she had a

hair pin, can you throw me your hair pin? John

asked politely, okay Joy replied as she removed her

hair pin and tossed it at John, with his shackle

bound hands he pick up the pin, as he tried to use

the pin to pick the lock of his chains, the door

opened and 3 men came in and took the four other

people who were not corpers, John heard one of

them say something about beheading them and

using their organs for money rituals, John silently

prayed to God for a miracle, as the last armed man

was about to close the door he mistakenly shut the

door on the bunch of keys attached to his belt hole,

the keys fell inside the room as the man shut the

door, that was the fastest prayer that God had ever

answered him, now he had to act fast, heaven had

helped him now he had to help himself, he got back

to picking the lock as he was sweating as if he was

inside an oven, he was relieved when he picked the

first lock, he had never done such before but he

had now put the movies he watched into good use,

as his left hand was free he used it to pick the

second lock,it took about 3 minutes for him to pick

the lock until it opened, with both his hands free he

stretched to where the key was but he was just a

few inches short, he looked around and

remembered their clothes which was in the middle

of the room, he stretched to where the clothes

were and took his boxers and used often it to try to

get the key, He threw his boxers over the bunch of

keys and pulled it nearer, now he had the keys, he

had tried 3 keys before the fourth one opened the

shackles on his feet, now free, he out on his boxers

and went to release Joy first, he tried the keys that

released him first and it opened all her shackles, he

tried it for TJ too and It worked, when TJ was free

John have him the keys to release the other 3

people while he dressed up, when they were all

released and dressed up, John had a plan to get

them out of there.. ……………………… Bison was in

the slaughter room when he noticed that his keys

were not with him, he quickly retraced his steps in

search of the keys, he searched everywhere but

could not find his keys, he then remembered that

he had not searched the dungeon, with his pistol in

his hand he ran to the dungeon, he then ordered

the two guards to open the door, when the door

was opened, Bison could not believe his eyes The

room was empty as all the prisoners had escaped

through the ceiling, he raised an alarm and

informed all the men that the prisoners had

escaped and he needed to have them back, all the

men ran out in search of John and his mates

because prisoners meant money, John and his

friends ran through the back of the building into the

forest as fast as they could because sooner or later

their captors would find out that they had escaped,

before they could say Nelson Mandela 6 armed

men were after them, it was now a race of life and

death called stop and you are dead, TJ had been in

a similar situation before when he was being chased

by cultists in his university for dating the girlfriend

of one of them, that time he ran through the school

premises to the nearest police station or else he

would have surely been beaten to coma, he had

then called his father who had then called the

commissioner of police to get the cultists arrested,

they ran through the forest without knowing where

exactly they were heading to, luckily for John the

men had not collected his wrist watch, he checked

the time as he was running, it was 4:20 pm, as they

continued running one of the male corpers whose

name was Chidi fell and twisted his ankle, they had

already ran far ahead before TJ looked back and

noticed what had happened, none of them dared go

back to rescue him, John felt sorry for Chidi as the

men pounced on him and dragged him back, one

man dragged him as the remaining 5 continued the

pursuit, as John and his friends ran on they jumped

over a pit which was full of bones and skulls and

produced a bad odor, John concluded that that was

probably where the men dumped the remains of

their victims, they ran and turned left but the men

kept pursuing them, they arrived at a cliff which

had a river at It’s bottom, John and his friends

looked back, there was only one thing to do John

looked down at that river, it was flowing fast, he

looked at TJ who nodded at him he looked back and

saw that the armed men were closing in on them,

he held Joy’s hand and said we all jump at the count

of 3 okay, by then the men were 50 feet apart from

them shouting stop! stop there! With Joy’s hand in

his John counted 1, 2 , and at the count of three the

youth corpers Jumped down the cliff, by the time

the men got there, John and his friends were half

way down the cliff, the men turned back

disappointed, Bison was going to be mad at

them……….. Splash! John and his friends landed into

the river, they tried to swim as the strong river

current carried them along, he held on tight to Joy’s

hand, no matter what happens he’s not going to let

go, he didn’t bother much about TJ, he knows he’ll

be fine, he looked back and saw that the other male

and female corper were doing well, they journeyed

along the river as the current continued to push

them down the river, John’s heart raced as he

sighted something that looked like a crocodile

ahead of them, his heart pounded even faster as

they got near it, it was then he realised that it was

just a log of wood, he felt relieved as his heart beat

reduced, he and Joy held on to the log of wood as

their Journey continued, TJ looked to his side as he

saw monkeys on the trees beside the river

chattering and jumping happily, for one second he

wished he could take their place, he had had

enough worries for that day, he looked at John and

Joy floating away with the log, he smiled a bit, he

knew John liked Joy a lot because he had told him

about her before, he had never seen John go crazy

about a girl before, at least he was happy for John

whose dreams were coming true but maybe not the

way he had wanted or imagined it, the river slowed

down as it brought them into a larger river, this was

probably the end of the river , he thought, he was

right, it was the end of the river but the beginning

of a new journey as they felt something like ropes

pulling them into the river, they tried to scream for

help but their words became bubbles as they were

dragged underwater

The corpers struggled for air as they were drawn

down deeper into the river, suddenly a bright light

shone and they all became unconscious


Joy was the first to wake up in the unusual

environment, as she opened her eyes a tilapia fish

passed in front of her, she was shocked as she

noticed they were underwater and she could

breathe, John and the rest too woke up and were

shocked but amazed that they could breathe

underwater, as they tried to move they realised

that they had been tied down by some mysterious

sea plant, as they tried struggling to free

themselves a voice echoed ‘what are you looking for

in my kingdom you worthless and wicked human

beings ‘? They looked around but could not find

anybody, you fish eaters disgust me and do not

deserve to be alive, I don’t know why my daughter

rescued you people from the drowners but you are

going to face the panel tonight, it was then that the

merman showed his self to the corpers, he was

very handsome and had a the trunk of a human

being and the rest of his body from his waist was

like a fish, John had heard of mammy water, he had

even seen them in movies like H2O but he never

imagined it was anything as beautiful as that, the

merman swam towards them and looked at their

faces before swimming away, then another figure

approached them, it was a mermaid, the most

beautiful thing TJ had ever seen in his life, she

came towards them and told them how she had

rescued them from the drowners, she also told

them that her father, the king hated human beings

and was going to put them on trial, if they were

found guilty they would be eaten by fish, she also

told them that they had to pick one of them to be

their lawyer and that they had an hour before trial,

she then swam away, they spent the next 45

minutes debating who would be their lawyer as

John and TJ both studied law, they finally agreed

that John should be their lawyer as he had taken

good decisions for them, they had not waited too

long when some huge mermen came to lead them

to trial…
