Copper John


episode 8

John was troubled by what Nelson just told him, he went back to

the sitting room and sat on the couch, could his father had been

kidnapped by those wicked men? He asked himself, he went to

the fridge to get a bottle of water, but this time he sipped it slowly

instead of gulping it like a dragon that wants to put out It’s fire,

countless thoughts occupied his mind, Joy sat beside him and

held his hands, she had listened to their conversation, she felt

sorry for John, she had lost both her parents a few years ago in a

car crash, but she had gotten over it, she wouldn’t want him to

lose his father, she looked at his face and tried to console him,

he looked into her eyes and his heart melted, he almost smiled,

he then held her head and placed it on his chest, 10 minutes

later, John looked at Joy any saw that she had slept off, he stood

up and carried her to the room where Becky was, he placed her

on the bed gently and kissed her, he went to the room where the

guys were and he lied down on the spare bed, he was deep in

thought until 1 pm when nature came and closed his eyes

………………………………………………………… Kemi woke up with a smile on

her face, her concubine had satisfied her more than her husband

ever did, she even wondered maybe that was the reason why

John’s mother left, maybe he could not satisfy her in bed and she

left for that reason, wise woman, Kemi thought to herself, she

had made the right choice, but she herself won’t leave the house

for her husband, when he comes back with John, that is even if

the useless boy was found alive, she would send an assassin to

take care of them, her concubine was still sleeping, she didn’t

blame him, he had worked like a bull, she stood up and wore her

cloth, she carried her hand bag and left his house, she drove

back to her husband’s house as she had to go to work that

morning …………………………………………………… The corpers woke up

early except John, he had woken up around 8:30 am, he stood up

and walked towards the bathroom, he brushed his teeth and had

his bath, he saw a new T-shirt and a pair of jeans on the bed, he

didn’t need to ask Google before he knew it was for him, he was

happy he was not going to wear the smelly palace guard clothes

again, he went out of the room and walked towards the dining

room, there they were eating breakfast, he greeted them before

sitting down with them at the dining table, the house help

brought his own breakfast of moin – moin and pap and placed it

before him, he ate silently without saying a word, when they had

finished eating, Nelson announced to them that a police pickup

was waiting outside to take four of them home as John would go

later because he had some important issues to attend to, John

then interfered, he told them what happened to his father, they all

felt sorry for him and hoped that his father was not in the hands

of the kidnappers, Tomiwa and Becky were inside the police

pickup, Joy and TJ had refused to go, Joy said she was going to

Nelson’s place with him until he was ready to go, he was the only

person she trusted, TJ was not going to leave his friend in this

state of mind, he called his father using Nelson’s phone, it was

his father’s assistant that picked the phone, his father was out of

the country, he told the assistant to tell him that he would be

spending a few more days in Enugu, the police pickup left on the

journey to Lagos carrying only Tomiwa and Becky, John wished

them safe journey ………………………………………………… The hunter and

his wife wore their best clothes and began their journey to the

palace, they were going to meet their new son-in-law.

Nelson received an expected call, one of the chiefs called to inform

him that the king was dead and the police was needed to make an

investigation and state the cause of death, he knew the king was

dead already because John had told him so, he was dressed in his

police uniform already, he asked John and his friends to excuse

him, he had to get to the king’s palace, he went out of the house

and he and his driver set out in his Toyota Prado SUV, John was a

little bit scared, it just occured to him that if he was identified as

the one who poisoned the king he might be charged to court for

murder, it would be a case that he could not win, it would be John

vs the entire community, ……………… The hunter and his wife

were close to the palace, they had almost gotten there when they

heard people wailing, the hunter feared that the king was dead,

and his fear was confirmed when a girl told him that the king had

died the previous night, after hearing this, his wife Chinyere

immediately sat on the ground and stared wailing, their son in law

was dead, that hunter shouted on his wife to get up from the

ground immediately, they stormed towards the palace and were

about to enter the palace when two men who looked like balotelli

stood in their in their way one of them asked where they were

heading and told them to state their business, the hunter narrated

their reason for being there, the guard told him that the king was

dead, but he still allowed them to enter, the hunter and his wife

were inside the palace, they were lucky to find Chinelo easily,

Chinelo was wailing and her mother quickly went to console her,

Chinelo told them Of she and the late king’s love affair, they

exclaimed after hearing what their daughter Said, they would be in

big trouble if their daughter ever got pregnant, the hunter asked

about John and the female corpers from Chinelo, she told him that

she had not seen John or any of the female corpers but TJ had

tried to come and rescue her, the hunter shook his head in self

pity, the situation had turned around


Nelson arrived at the palace with his officers who were specialized

in such matters, they ordered that no member of the palace should

leave, the specialist examined the king’s corpse, they came up

with a result within 30 minutes , they didn’t need to ask ifa before

they knew he was poisoned, they told Nelson their findings, he

announced to the palace that their king was poisoned, the people

in the palace shouted ahh! Nelson’s men began their work, they

started first by interrogating the palace cooks, they separated the

people who prepared and served his food, Nelson personally went

to interrogate Chinelo, he was told the king had died in her room,

he saw that she was in a sober mood, he told her to calm down, all

he was going to do was to ask her some questions, she nodded

her head in approval, he started by asking her what the king was

doing before he died, she answered shyly and told him that they

had just finished making love, when he suddenly fell down and

died, he asked her if the king had forced her to have S£x, no she

replied, she had done it willingly, he asked her if she was happy to

have been in the palace before the king died, she said yes, Nelson

examined her carefully, with his psychological instinct, he knew

she was not lying, she looked young and harmless but then he

reminded himself that looks could be deceiving, he asked her how

old she was, she said she was 16 years old, Jesus! Nelson said

within his mind, she was underage, the king had definitely

committed child abuse, but he couldn’t do anything about it even if

the king was alive, the king had authority over such matters, he

stood up and went out of her room, he placed her under the low

priority suspect level, Sir, one of Nelson’s men called him, he told

him his attention was needed in the kitchen, when he got there

another officer told him that they had tested the food that the king

had eaten the previous night, it contained some toxic substances

which they believed to be poison, Nelson told the chiefs about their

discovery, he noticed that one of the chiefs, chief Doherty aka chief

Dotmann was not present, he asked about him and he was told that

chief Dotmann had travelled to Lagos two days ago, Nelson

ordered that his men should round up all the cooks and take them

to the police station for serious questioning, Nelson left the palace

and went to town to buy some more clothes for John and his

friends, as his driver was about to drive his car into his compound,

he received a call from one of his men, his man informed him that

after torturing the cooks, one of them confessed to have poisoned

the king’s food, Nelson went into his house and told John that they

had found the person who poisoned the king, John was relieved

when he heard what Nelson said, maybe he was not the one who

was responsible for the king’s death, he was glad someone else

had also wanted the king dead, but one thing he didn’t know was
