“Oh, God! Help us. What do we do. Someone call your dad and James, I think they can speak some sense into her”. Their mum looked at the others.
“Mum don’t bother because I am not changing my mind, James knows about my horoscope practice and so he won’t be surprise by this” Olaochi replied
the twins have withdrawn aside in the living room and they have their heads together whispering, they smiled and thumps up themselves and signal for Oma to join them”.
Oma beckon on her sister to join them, they smiled as they whispered. After some time, they return to their mum and aunt. Oma spoke up and told their mum,
“Ok mum, let her be. I think everyone has something else to do. I have to meet a client in a few minutes, so see you soon”. Said Oma.
“I have to run too, meeting Tope for lunch” Didi said.
“Having lunch with our friends too” Zino said as she signals to Tara to go towards the door.
“bye mum, bye aunt. I hope you talk some sense into her”. Tara kissed her aunt and mum, then walks to the door open the door but does not leave.
The others, Oma, Didi and Zino stands by the couch and at the nod of Tara’s head, grabbed Olaochi and takes off towards the open door. She is shocked, then start struggling and tries to pull the mask off her face but Tara holds it in place.
“Put me down! Put me down!! She screams but no one listens as they race outside towards the gate, their mum and aunts running behind.
“Put me down, please “she screams all the more.
At last Olaochi felt her feet on the ground and the mask was snatched from her face and she found herself in the middle of the street in her night dress and house coat, with no shoes. As she looked at her family, she saw James her fiancé right in front, with a shocked look on his face and Zino pointed at the sky.
Not only was the sky dark and clouded but at that moment huge drop of rains started falling.
“This is what your horoscope meant sister, Tara said laugh and screaming “wow!
“If you had check the weather forecast, you would have realised that there was going to be dark clouds, storms and rains. Said Zino
“which honey, was why I choose an indoor venue for our wedding” James chirped in laughing.
“Oh! Girl, your horoscope has failed this time” Oma laughed enjoying her triplet’s embarrassment.
“Typical Olaochi’s excuse, avoiding planned or schedule outings or work even for her own weddings. Didi said laughing
“Really, was this what she was up to? Their mum asked surprised.
“Of all the impudence of this child” their aunt said, sounding so angry now
“Yes, it’s one of Olaochi’s ways to avoid coming along today mum” Didi said
“So, you all knew and said nothing” their mum really mad glaring at the girls.
“But mum, you never asked when you came in. you only took over with Aunty Kaka as usual. As long as it is her darling Ola” Zino said
The girls started laughing as their mum and aunt turned to glare first at Olaochi, who is standing dazed staring at her feet.
“Well, at least it gave us the opportunity to learn of the great family secret” Oma said.
Their mum hissed and pulled her sister’s hands and they both walked towards their car giving Olaochi one last disdainful look, which made her draw her robe tighter as if for protection.
“Ola, at least your horoscope is partially true. Because you really got mum and aunty in a cloudy dangerous mood that is worse than the weather.
All of a sudden, the girls started laughing as Olaochi held her coat together, eyed her sisters up and down and pulled her fiancé as she stumps back inside.
