The story continues…
Muko did not return to the house until all the lights had gone out.
He tapped on the sitting room window where he knew Samsoni had slept.
"Don't bother me oh, spirit of Jaja !" Samsoni shouted.
"It's me your brother ." Muko whispered from outside
"Oh, I thought you were the spirit of Jaja Sisse who disturbs children."
"Open the door."
"How do I know you are not the Spirit of Jaja Sisse."
"Just open the door!" Muko whispered angrily. Samsoni crept to the back door and opened it slightly. Muko pushed passed him and the door hit poor Samsoni's nose. Without even saying "sorry" Muko went straight to sleep.
The next morning was the wedding day and everyone was too busy rushing around to remember that Muko was in trouble. No matter how many times Samsoni hinted about it, his mother didn't seem to know what he was talking about. Mrs. Mulondo was far too busy, organising the food and servers, to pay attention to anything Samsoni said.
By the afternoon, the reception hall had been decorated and when the guests arrived from church, Nalu helped guide them to their seats. Cousin Paulo and his bride were the last to arrive. Everyone cheered and clapped as they entered and Hajati escorted them to the high table. It was soon time for food.
Mrs Mulondo handed each server a tray of samosas, popcorns and crisps, and the servers marched smartly into the reception hall. Behind the food trays came the crates of soda. Young men in stylish haircuts asked the guests what they were drinking and no one was prepared for the reaction that came from those who chose sprite.
"Is this a joke?" one of them shouted.
"Are you serious!" another complained.
"This is water not soda," a little girl screamed.
