Asha and Queen through the help of one of their
sugar daddies worked their service to Abuja,
which is the same place where they had obtained
their university education. The two girls took their
time to shop only to discover at their arrival on
camp that most of the things they had bought
were unnecessary and contraband.
In camp, there were the hottest Pepper them
Gang. For the 21 days that they stayed in the
orientation camp, they did not repeat any cloth.
They had bough enough white T-shirts and
shorts that would last even beyond the camping
days if they decided to continue wearing a new
pair each day. The two girls were known to
always dodge parade and Man –O-War drills and
people wondered how they were able to do it
without getting caught. Soon enough, they
became one of the most popular girls in camp
and at mammy market where they bought drinks
for fellow corps members. The two girls were in
different platoons and soon they contested and
won the most beautiful girl on camp competition
with Asha as first runner up after Queen who won
the pageant.
Getting a posted to a good PPA after camp was
not difficult as they had gotten recommendation
from a private Firm in Garki who wrote to NYSC
and asked that they be posted to their office. After
camp, the two girls returned home to rest before
resuming at their places of primary assignment.
Asha: “mehn, camp was so much fun. Do you
know that I almost wish that it didn’t have to end
this soon?” she said to Queen who was
undressing.
Queen: “for me it was the last week that was fun.
That first week ehn, I felt like running back home.
If not for your encouragement, I would have taken
a pass o, ah”
Asha: “why won’t you take a pass. You wey lazy
like this”
They giggled.
Queen: “Babe, let’s go out and look for a man to
warm our bed tonight o, my honey pot dey
scratch me” she said quickly.
Asha: “what do you mean by it is scratching you?
Do you have toilet infection or what?”
Queen: “Toilet infection ke? Never. I never used
the toilet in camp o, shebi we were paying to use
that VIP toilet in mammy market now” she said.
Asha: “I know, that is why I am wondering where
the scratch is coming from”
Queen: “No be that kind of scratch jare. I mean
the thing needs a man”
Asha: “babe you just left camp today and you are
already talking about sleeping with a man. I hail
you o” she remarked.
Queen: “What do you mean by that? Haven’t I
tried? For the past 21 days, I have not had any
man and you are here giving me stories. Wetin
happen wey man no go touch me? Am I mourning
my husband?” she asked sarcastically.
Asha: “Oh my God, don’t tell me you were that
holy in camp” she asked eyes widely opened.
Queen: “before nko? You know after that
encounter with chief, I promised myself that I
would never sleep with any man for free again.
Those people in camp don’t have money and I
am not cut out for any osho free things”
Asha: “you tried o” she said scratching her head.
“meaning you did it there right?” Queen asked
her.
Asha: “You can say that again. I got one sweet
guy that was helping me there o. I cannot come
and kill myself because I am in camp”
The two girls giggled.
Queen: “you are such a spoilt thing. Go jor!” she
teased.
Asha: “you are the one who taught me now, yeye”

Mercy who had left her posting in the hands of
God was posted to Port Harcourt and all through
her stay in camp, she was actively involved in
parades, seminars, skills acquisition trainings and
every other camp activities. She was also involved
in camp fellowship where she preached to her
fellow corps members on the need to keep their
bodies pure until marriage.
Peter who was in Abuja working would call her
every evening and ask how the day went. The two
lovers would end the call with a word of prayer
and encouragement.
Mercy was made a platoon commandant and
during the match pass, her platoon emerged as
the overall winner of the competitions held to
mark the end of the camping session. She was
posted to the state capital for her primary
assignment. There, she did not relent in her
pursuit of godliness and soon she was made the
state coordinator of their Christian fellowship. This
gave her the opportunity to travel to different
places in Rivers state where she met many
people. Anywhere she went, she had her CV and
that of Peter handy and she didn’t hesitate to give
it to whoever she met. She knew that it was still
early for her to go in search of a job but she
didn’t want to take chances of waiting to finish
NYSC before seeking for job opportunities. Every
day she would pray for a miracle job for herself
and her man even though all he had was a
secondary school certificate. She believed that a
wise woman helps in building up her man, that
was her working principle.

Asha and Queen went to Class Lounge in Wuse 2
to relax since it was a Friday. The lounge was for
the rich and the two girls had to pay through
their nose to buy tickets. They settled down to a
bottle of brandy and after a while, they decided to
go into the club to catch some fun.
That evening, they had so much fun dancing and
drinking.
After a while, they returned to their seat and that
was when the two girls noticed a man who was
seated quietly at the VIP corner of the club, with a
bottle of Champaign before him. He had some
bundles of N1, 000 notes in his hands and he
was spraying them on the strippers who were
falling over each other to drag the money.
Queen: “Asha, did you see that handsome dude
seated over there?” she raised her voice because
the volume of the music was loud.
Asha: “I have been staring at him since o. Looks
like he is very wealthy, the man has been
throwing money around since we got here and it
is not like he is dancing with anyone. He is just
seated there, drinking and throwing money away”
Queen: “I like him. No, I love him” she said
plainly.
Asha: “You what? Queen, you are drunk. No, you
are very drunk”
Queen: “I mean it and trust me I am not drunk”
Asha: “No you don’t mean it. How can you just
say you love a man that doesn’t even know that
you exist? Are you mad?”
Queen: “He is very rich and handsome and that is
all that matters to me. I want to marry him”
Asha: “You have gone nuts o. You, marry? I pray
o”
Queen: “I am going to ask him out” she said
getting.
“You will do no such nonsense” she said pulling
her back to the chair.
Queen: “Watch me as I go and get him” she said
and walked away shaking her bum in the mini
skirt she had had on.
Asha: “My friend has gone mad again o. What do
I do now?” she asked rhetorically.
