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 unconscious ……………………………………………………………
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 …

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…
