Copper John – episode 7

Copper john
episode 7
John, TJ and Tomiwa sat un-der a tree not far from the palace, the
only news john wanted to hear was that the king was dead so
that he could carry out his plan to perfection, the hunter had left
them and gone back to his home, he seemed less bothered than
they were, maybe he wanted something like that, his daughter
getting married to a king, TJ looked at John in surprise, he had
never seen him act with so much determination, Joy had surely
had a lot of impact on him, Tomiwa mind had wandered away, he
was thinking of his father, his mother and his little sisters,
though he had not informed them of his decision to come to
Lagos two days ago, he just hoped they have not tried dialing his
handset yet, his mind was brou-ght back to reality when he saw a
guard running towards their direction, John was battle re-ady, if
the guard was coming for him, he was going to use his combat
moves now, the guard ignored them and br@nched to the house
behind them, the guard seemed worried as he knocked on the
chiefs door, the chief c@m£ out almost immediately as if he had
been expecting him, John looked back to see what was going on
between them, he heard the guard say something like ‘the Igwe
is dead’ then the chief reacting to what he had said as if he was
in trouble, John’s greatest news had been confirmed, his plot had
succeeded, the Igwe was dead, he signaled to TJ and Tomiwa
who also knew what was going on, they had to execute their plan
now ……………………………………………. The hunter entered his house
singing a joyful song, when his wife saw him alone she asked of
their daughter Chinelo, he then went on to explain what
happened to his wife, as soon as he finished narrating the story
she started dancing and singing, they both sang and danced
together, their dream had come true, they were now officially In-
Laws with the most influential man in town, they were now In-
Laws with the king ……………………………………. It was 9 pm, Nelson
was in his sitting room with his wife, he was worried, his friend
had not come to his house and his phone number still switched
off, he had to act fast, he feared the worst, something might had
happened to his friend, maybe he was not lost but had fallen
victim to the ruthless kidnappers, he stood up and left his wife in
the sitting room, he had to go to be-d because he had the feeling
that tomorrow was going to be a long
day …………………………………………………………….. Kemi was having the
time of her life, she was in another man’s be-d, her husband had
travelled to Eungu in search of her stepson, she hissed at the
thought of it, she couldn’t care less if John was Dead but she
was glad her husband was gone because now she would have
the chance to sleep about with other men, she smiled as her
concubine c@m£ out of the bathroom and smiled at her, she knew
what the smile meant, he was re-ady for round
two ……………………………………………….. Chinelo was in tears as she
realized that she had made a mistake, her husband was dead
and for all she cared she could be pregnant for him, her dreams
only lasted for a few hours as it had vanished from her face like a
smoke, she had different thoughts, what would she tell her
parents, what if the new king would not want her, suddenly a
guard gr@bb£d her arm, she looked up at his face and recognized
him instantly, it was one of those corpers, we have to leave here
now TJ said to Chinelo, instead of following him, she placed her
head on the late King’s che-st and wept, TJ had to leave, he had
tried his best ………………………………………………………… Joy was sitting on
her be-d when a guard barged into her room, she recognized him
instantly, it was John, the love of her life, she almost wept as
they k!$$£d each other, John said they had to leave quic-k,
Tomiwa had rescued Becky, TJ had gone to rescue Chinelo, they
had to meet them at the rendez vous point, they ran throu-gh the
palace which was now in disorder as everyb©dy was weeping for
the king, they ran throu-gh the back door and towards a tree, John
could see Tomiwa, Becky and TJ but Chinelo was not with them,
he asked TJ what went wrong, TJ replied and said she does not
want to leave her new husband, they ran to the main road, they
didn’t know where they were heading to, but they kept running,
suddenly John remembered the place, it was the road to his
dad’s friends house, Mr Nelson, he had visited there twice, Mr
Nelson though always c@m£ to check up on him at least once
every month, this way everyb©dy John said to them, they didn’t
know where they were going but they had all learned to trust
John’s decision, he ran towards the black gate and knocked it
furiously, a gate man opened the gate, he recognized John, Oga
mi we-tin happen now? He asked John they pushed him out of the
way, entered the compound and locked the gate behind them,
Nelson ran out of his house wearing pyjamas, he thought it was
his friend Mr Adeboye, but it was someone he was even more
glad to see, he was so happy, John was
John was so happy to see his father’s friend, he ran towards him
and hvgged him, the rest of them were relieved to be behind the
safety of a gate, TJ knew Mr Nelson, he always c@m£ around to
check on them and give them money and foodstuff, TJ went
closer to him and greeted him, Mr Nelson hvgged TJ and John
together, he looked over their shoulder and noticed two girls and
a guy c@m£ with John and TJ, he wondered why John and TJ
were dressed in the palace guards clothes, as if John was
re-ading his mind, he introduced his friends to Uncle Nelson, as
he usually calls him , Nelson asked them into his house, only a
mad man would say no, Becky and Tomiwa wondered where
John knew this man from, John had been a blessing to their
journey, they didn’t hesitate to move towards the house, at least
this man seemed nice enough to be a kidnapper or a wife
snatching king, they all followed him into the house, Nelson
immediately ordered his house help to prepare food for 5 people,
John greeted Nelson’s wife who was surprised to see strange
faces in their house, she saw John and immediately went to hvg
him, she thought he was dead, John was no visitor, he went into
the kitchen and brou-ght out 5 bottles of water from the fridge, and
took 5 cu-ps from the dining table, he handed his friends four
bottled water and four cu-ps and he poured himself some water,
and gulped other down, it was as if the water had come from
God’s personal pool, they sat down in the sitting room and
watched TV, they thought they would never watch TV again, John
looked at Joy, he hoped that king had not t©uçhed her, cause if he
did? he wouldn’t mind killing him the second time, his mind c@m£
back to life when a plate of rice and turkey was placed before
him, he began to dig in without hesitation, within seven minutes
the mount Everest placed before him had become Jos plateau,
after resting for five minutes he went to Mr Nelson and explained
their adventure to him, but he didn’t mention what the mermaid
gave him or that he poisoned the king in his story, Nelson was
astonished by his story, even people stronger than them did not
escape alive, Nelson showed them to the two guest rooms, they
could choose whichever room they wanted, they all moved up to
the rooms, TJ and Tomiwa stayed in one while the girls went to
the other One, as John wanted to go to the room, Nelson called
him back, he had something to tell him
