episode 3

They were led to another part 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 underwater world, he then asked the opposing

lawyer what his best food was, the opposing lawyer replied and

said he eats underwater 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, tilapia, 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 underwater court finds the

humans.

Not Guilty! You are therefore discharged and acquitted, John and

his friends heaved a sigh of relief as the judgement was passed,

John was the happiest amongst them because he had won his

first major case, it was a special and unique one, it was

underwater 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 touched, he was full of Joy, he was the man of the

moment, Joy stepped forward and gave him a hug, yes! he

deserved it, the rest of his friends stepped forward and hugged

him too, TJ gave him a pat on his cleanly shaved head and said

that’s my boy, the princess of the underwater world came 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 understanding ………………………………

It was time for them to leave the underwater world, they were

lead upwards by hefty mermen who helped them swim to the

river bank and quickly swarm back to their underwater 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 body, 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 underwater 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 already 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 under the orange tree, they would wake up in

turns to keep watch of the others, as John lay down 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 deep 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 slept 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 sleeping on the ground, he looked at Joy, he was glad she

had survived all what they had gone through, 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 needed

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 geography, 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

geography, 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 wider 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 stop there
