The corporal allowed for the soldiers to have Sunday morning off of training but Ishmael Beah knew something was wrong.
Carry on with the game.Right now I want to see my soldiers play soccer.
After the soldiers played a game of soccer they all went to the river and swam till the corporal came and got them.
Let's go, soldiers, the holiday is over.
Ishmael was right thinking there was something wrong. The corporal was preparing them to go into fighting. They began leading the soldiers into the woods.
Stand up on your feet, soldiers.
As the soldiers patrolled the woods they ran into rebels and the corporal ordered his soldiers to hold and then fire.
Get down! Shoot!
After the firing had stopped the corporal had the soldiers retreat and then loot the dead bodies for ammo and guns.
I lead him to his death... if only i let him sleep in.
Ishmael woke up in the middle of the night after reliving the warfare that he had experienced during the day. He started firing his gun in the air after a nightmare so the corporal sat outside with him.
