Adventures of corper john…by felnino Pt1

it was around 6 am when John woke up, he tried to get up and say his morning prayers when he noticed that TJ, his childhood friend had slept with his leg over his chest, he pushed his leg aside and cursed TJ ” when you go dey drink too much “, Adebayo John was a 23 year old corper who hailed from Ogun state , he and his friend Timmy Johnson 23 whom also hailed from Ogun state have been together since childhood, they both attended the same primary school, secondary school and university, and surprisingly they were both posted to Enugu state for their NYSC. They had finished their NYSC and were going back home that morning, John was not really excited that morning because he was returning home to his busy father who never had time for him and his mean step mother who hated him because he was the only male child in the family, John’s mother had left him with his father because he was a drunkard and beat her up every time he drank, he had met John’sstep mother at a club where he usually drank. John quickly said his prayers and went to have his bath, when he came backTJ was still sleeping, John kicked him and said mumu you no go go bath, TJ then said ‘weray’ and went out to have his bath.John had finished dressing up when TJ came in, John was dressed in his Corper outfit, while waiting for TJ to finish dressing up he took his time to cross check his luggage, he then remembered that he had not picked up his novel, at least that would entertain him throughout the long journey to Lagos. John and TJ went to have their breakfast of moin – moin and pap at mama Nkechi’s buka, they then set out to the main road to look for a taxi to take them to the motor park, they waited for about 7 minutes before they saw a taxi, after a minute of negotiating the taxi driver then agreed to take them there for 200 naira, they then set off on the 15 minutes journey to the motor park, John looked sideways at TJ, TJ was the last born of a rich family of 3 girls and he was the only male child, his 3 sisters were based in the U.S with their mother, while his father was a busy business man who rarely spent a week without traveling, TJ was handsome, he was the ladies guy but he was not brilliant in terms of academics, he graduated with a second class lower, TJ also had a knack for getting into trouble. They got to the park and alighted then settled their taxi driver, it was then TJ tried hiding his face when he sighted somebody in the garage ,John noticed TJ’s action and asked oh boy wetin happen? TJ said padi mi na one of those girls I see o, make we do quick goenter bus, they hurriedly entered a bus with a Lagos sign on it, while in the bus TJput his head on the seat to hide his face. John, still a little bit surprised asked, which girl be that? TJ with his head still onthe chair, it’s one of those girls who claimed I impregnated them, Job burst into an uncontrolled laughter which attracted some passangers in the bus, so you dey run from your responsibility abi? Which kind responsibility? Na only me they dey follow sleep? If she see me for here she go hook me down come embarass me for this park. Luckily for TJ the last passanger entered and they set off, but TJ still had his head on the chair, John with a smile on his face tapped TJ on his head and said Baba Junior carry your head up, TJ grinned and said you dondey craze. John checked his wrist watch, they had set off around 8 am, John then took a moment to survey the faces of those in the bus, they were six corpers in the bus including them, 4 guys and 2 girls,one of the girls of which he knew, her name was Joy and she was one the few girls he admired. Joy Parker was epitome of beauty, she was an half-caste, her father was from England and her mother was from Nigeria, John had seen a lot of girls in his lifetime but he could swear shewas the most beautiful girl he had ever seen, after a while John picked up his novel and got busy, he was reading the broker by John Grisham, he was in the 5th chapter when something happened. Suddenly the woman beside him had an asthma attack, as she tried to use her inhaler it fell outside the bus through the window, John immediately shouted at the driver to stop, when the bus finally came to a halt, John got down and sprinted backin search of the inhaler, he ran for about 50 metres before sighting the inhaler, when he picked it up he ran back to the bus like a mad man and handed the inhaler back to the woman, she then used it and it stopped the attack in a matter of seconds, John looked sideways only for him to see that Joy was staring at him, John was immediately taken aback by her captivating beauty, she had a light skin and beautiful brown eyes, they had eye contact for about 5 seconds before Joy finally looked away smiling , after the woman had calmed down she thanked John for his help and prayed for him… To be continued
