Copper John

episode 3
They were led to another p@rt of the river where a lot of mermen
and mermaids were, it looked like a place where they had their
events , then the trial began, the opposition lawyer started by
accusing humans of murder and pollution of their water world, he
pleaded with the court to give the humans the justice they
deserve which was death, then John was called to defend his
friends, he first started by greeting that judge and the entire
members of the un-derwater world, he then asked the opposing
lawyer what his best food was, the opposing lawyer replied and
said he eats un-derwater plants, John then said he was also guilty
of murder because the plants also had life, he said that if the
plants could move and talk they would also put the merman and
mermaids on trial, he explained that fish was one of man’s best
food and that man even reared them for food, he went ahead to
say that they were some humans who kept fish as pet, he
narrated their ordeal in the hands of the kidnappers and begged
the court to have mercy on them as they all had families to return
to, when John had finished speaking, the court jury then swarm
away to decide on the outcome of the trial, TJ chuckled as the
jury swarm away, he could not believe his eyes, they were being
tried by fish, he was guilty of eating fish ranging from cat fish
pepper soup, til@pia, Titus, sardine and many more than he could
count, in fact fish was in the moin – moin they hand for breakfast
that morning, the jury were back and they were not smiling, they
told the judge their decision and went back to their position, the
judge cleared his throat and said here is our decision, after
hearing from both lawyers, this un-derwater court finds the
Not Guilty! You are therefore discharged and acquitted, John and
his friends heaved a sigh of relief as the judgement was pas-sed,
John was the happiest amongst them because he had won his
first major case, it was a special and unique one, it was
un-derwater against the mer world, he knew he was destined for
great things, he went to give the opposing lawyer a hand shake,
the opposing lawyers hand was the softest and smoothest hand
he had ever t©uçhed, he was full of Joy, he was the man of the
moment, Joy stepped forward and gave him a hvg, yes! he
deserved it, the rest of his friends stepped forward and hvgged
him too, TJ gave him a pat on his cleanly shaved head and said
that’s my boy, the princess of the un-derwater world c@m£ forward
gave John something that looked like a Pearl and whispered
something in his ear, John looked at the pearl and nodded his
head in un-derstanding ………………………………
It was time for them to leave the un-derwater world, they were
lead upwards by hefty mermen who helped them swim to the
river bank and quic-kly swarm back to their un-derwater world,
finally they were free from the water world, TJ had seen the
mermaid tell John something in his ear, he wondered what she
might have told him, maybe, she was asking for his bb pin or his
twitter handle, TJ chuckled as he thought, John looked at Joy,
she was dripping with water as her Corper vest stuck to her skin,
he could now see her Sekxy and lovely b©dy, she saw him looking
and smiled at him, John looked back at the river which was now
calm, if there was a world record for longest time spent by a
human being un-derwater without air, they had now broken it, he
looked at his watch which he could not see clearly, whatever the
time was, the day was far spent as it was alre-ady evening, they
continued their journey with great precaution as they could not
afford another negative surprise that day, they found an orange
tree in their path and plucked some oranges to cure their hunger,
John watched as TJ devoured an orange, he just hoped there
was no orange kingdom to arrest them again, they finally decided
to spend their night un-der the orange tree, they would wake up in
turns to keep watch of the others, as John l@ydown to sleep he
looked at the bright side of their Journey, he had gotten a clean
hair cut and shave from his kidnappers and he had received a
very valuable jewel from the mermaid, he had also won his first
major case in court, he was also closer to that girl he loved, a
cool breeze blew as John fell into a de-ep sleep. Shh! no noise
They awoke to the sound of birds chirping in the forest, the sun
was about setting, Tomiwa, the other male Corper had sle-pt off
while keeping watch over them, he forgot to wake John up to
keep watch, John stood up and looked around, his back ached
from slee-ping on the ground, he looked at Joy, he was glad she
had survived all what they had gone throu-gh, he somehow felt
responsible for her safety, Becky the other female Corper was
crying and lamenting that they would not get out of the forest,
Joy moved closer to her and comforted her telling her all was
going to be all right, John knew she was right, they didn’t know
which direction they were going, but he knew that once there is
life, there is hope, they went in search of what to eat, luckily for
them they found a pawpaw tree with ripe fruits, they shook the
tree until two pawpaws fell, that was their breakfast, they nee-ded
water so they set back to the river they had just come from, but
they were careful not to go to close to it, as they drank and
washed their hands, legs and face, it was the first time any of the
had voluntarily drank water from a river , did they have a choice?
Now which way will they head? John called their attention so
that they can decide, Tomiwa studied geogra-phy, so using the
position of the sun he got their bearing and suggested they head
west, what did they know? They rarely knew anything about
geogra-phy, they set off on their journey, John was the one Who was in front, they had walked for two hours when they got to a wi-der road that was not tarred, they were glad because it meant
they were closer to civilization, they navigated the road for 10 minutes when they suddenly heard a voice saying st©p there
