PROLOGUE
It was the annual thanksgiving ceremony in the Thomas family. This has been the tradition for over a decade now for the Thomas to celebrate a reunion every once in a year. A day was always set aside, always a Saturday in the month of July to celebrate this annual event. Every
member of the Thomas family made it a point of duty to be present year in year out and Oluwole Thomas has been hosting the event for the past five years, since he hit the mega money contract with the federal government which skyrocketted his status in the family. His mansion which was located in the surburb area of Ibadan at the Agodi gate GRA oyo state. Members of the extended families including aunties and uncles
were present at the occassion.
"Oluwole. Where is your wife? I have not seen her since we arrived here about one hour ago." Patrick Thomas, Oluwole's elder brother said.
"I have not seen her all night too. Nate, go and call your mum."
Oluwole replied as he beckoned on his second son of his three children, two boys, Davies and Nathaniel and the girl, Serena, the baby of the family.
Nathaniel went in search of their mother and returned after one
minute.
"Dad, mum is not in her room." Nate informed his father who was
chatting with his siblings, his elder brother and sister, Patrick and
Jane and his younger brother, Collins.
"You can go." Collins said.
Nathaniel went back to where he was previously seated chatting with one of his cousins, Fedrick, Collins' first son.
Oluwole excused himself from the gathering and went in search of his wife, Anita. He had one place in mind since she was not in her room, the garden.
Oluwole walked into the garden and saw his beautiful wife under a
tached canopy chatting away on her laptop, a bottle of wine stood on the table as well as a glass cup which was half filled.
"Anita. What are you doing here?" He asked immediately he sat down on one of the chairs.
"Am chatting with an old friend. Doris, you know her don't you? The chapel prefect when we were in school. She now lived in the state with her family." Anita replied excitedly.
"Since you saw her on facebook last week, you are always chatting
with her. Doing what? Catching up on old times you'll say. Thereby
neglecting your duties. My family members are in there, you refused to welcome them."
"What duties Oluwole? The cooks are there to prepare whatever food you family wants to eat and which welcome again? Its not like I invited them here." She replied.
"But this has been the tradition for many years now." Oluwole replied.
"Traditions can die anytime and moreso I can't join you in placing your own family members on high when I have mine too and they are equally important too." She replied.
"So you are not joining us in there right?" He asked.
"Exactly. And as you can see. I am busy now." She replied.
Oluwole walked away angrily. All his life he has never been embarrassed that much even when he was poor.
This was the begining of the problem in the family. The children fell apart, some in support of their father and the others on their mother's side.
Sit back and relax as I take you through this wonderful series. To be updated on Saturdays.
