THE CAMP. Episode 15.
The soldier ordered and we obeyed, if not because of Yetunde, I would have took heel, he can’t run faster than me but he might catch her.
He walked closer and flashed his touch light on her faces.
“Wetin you dey do for here when you suppose dey pavilion, una dey gbensh abi?, answer me, Wetin una dey do for here?” He exclaimed.
I didn’t know what to say, I started stuttering. No lie came to my head. He told us to stand up and follow him.
“We are going to the administrative, when you get there, you will go and explain what you were doing in the dark behind the pavilion”
Right there, millions came to my mind, what I would say, and what I will say we were doing there. We were about standing when Yetunde started coughing. She coughed so hard that she started gasping for oxygen like an asthmatic patient. She held her chest and coughed uncontrollably. I rushed to her and called her name but she wasn’t responding.
She pulled her white tees and was left on bra only. This beholding sight of her bosoms got the soldier lost. I tried carrying her but I couldn’t, I yelled at him.
“Help me carry her please” instead he started asking what I have done to her.
Luckily a female soldier heard our voice and helped out. She yelled at the soldier for not helping. We carried Yetunde to the clinic. The noise in the pavilion and the activities didn’t let people know what was going on. Also, there were no corp members around to see what was going on.
She was rushed to the clinic and I was told to stay outside. They took her inside. The soldier that saw us came with two other soldiers and ordered me to follow them which I did. I was taken to the administration office for questioning.
When I got there, the administrative officer sat me done and asked what happened. I didn’t know what to say but something suddenly tapped into my mind and I let it out.

“We were at the pavilion when she said she couldn’t breathe so well that I should escort her down to catch some fresh air which I did, she was coughing and I stayed with her and when we heard that the soldiers were chasing people I told her that we should go back, we were heading back to the pavilion when he ( pointing at the soldier) saw us, then she started coughing.” I explained.
She turned to the officer.
“Is this true? Did you catch them doing anything?”
‘No ma, he replied”
“So at what point did she started coughing and what did you do?” She asked.
“She started coughing when I told them to move and I didn’t know what to do until Sarah came by to assist her to the hospital” he explained.
The administrative officer fury.
“Maina! You couldn’t do anything? What if she dies? A corp member was dying and you stood there doing nothing and all you could say is you told them to move, do you want to put the camp commandant and the rest of us in trouble?”
She paused to catch her breathe and continued.
“I want the report on that lady as soon as possible, I want to know what happened to her and I want a thorough examination on her, I want to know if something happened between her and this one ( referring to me)” she exclaimed.
The soldier and others left, I was about standing when she asked where I was going to, I sat down immediately.
Almost an hour later, one of the doctor corp member came with a file and handed it over to her.
“That’s the lady’s file ma, we didn’t see anything serious about her, we only noticed some strange fluid in her mouth, she might just be reacting to something she consumed. She’s stable now, she also requested to her her friend Ade” the lady explained.
The administrative officer collected the file and heaved a deep breathe of relieve.
“Thank you Jesus, did you examine her? Do you notice if anything happened between him and her?” She asked.
“No ma, there is no sign of recent penetration into her genitals ma” she replied.
“Okay thank you, You can go and meet your friend and please if you notice anything strange about her, don’t hesitate take her to the medical” she said and I told her that I will.
On my way to the clinic I kept wondering what happened to her, what would she have consumed that’ll cause such scary cough. I was led to the room she was, she was the only one in the room, immediately she saw me, she jumped up and hugged me.
She shut the door.
I was surprised.
“Yetunde, what happened to you? you scared me, the doctor said you might be reacting to something you ate because they found some fluid in your mouth, what did you eat?” I asked.
Then she started laughing.
“See you, I didn’t eat anything, I faked it because I don’t want to be embarrassed or something, I did what I did to prevent us from trouble, what yeye fluid is in my mouth if not your pre cum, it worked, at least we are not facing any panel” she whispered and I looked at her in surprise.
“Yetunde! OMG! so it was all fake” I exclaimed and she covered my mouth with her hand.
“Your voice is loud, what would you have me do Ade, I caused this and I had to do something to bring you out of it, abeg, no blame o” she ranted.
I stared at her in confusion.
Bro code 119 hit me.
“Bro must be brave but should also fear the other gender.”
Fear that gender!
