Long lost aunt

Often on tv, you can see stories of long lost child, long lost sister, long lost father etc. My family too has a long lost relative, my aunt aka my mum's sister.

This long lost sister was an elder sister of my mum and I think the story goes like, she ran away from home when she was still a kid because she was always beaten up by the employer of my grandma. That time my grandma was washing clothes for a woman and that woman always beat up my grandma and my aunties. She scolded my eldest aunt so much that she finally ran away from home. From then on, we never saw her again. At that time, my mum was still a kiddo!

I remembered that I once saw a family photo in my grandma's house and I saw that there were 5 children in the photo instead of 4, so I asked my mum who was the extra one. My mum told me that the extra one was the eldest daughter in the family but she ran away from home years ago. From then on, I know the existence of another aunt.

Already 40 long years went by, my mum never found the sister. Then suddenly, a call came from the second daughter of the family. She informed my mum that they found the eldest sister! Moreover, she was just staying opposite my second aunt!

In fact, it was my mum's brother who found the lost sister. He found her through a friend who can check it from the computer. I wonder which company the friend works in to be able to search.

Anyway, my mum is rather excited to see her again. My second aunt can't wait and since the lost sister is just living opposite her, she went banging on her door.

Tomorrow morning is the day when there will be a gathering for the family.

Oh yah, and my grandma still doesn't know about it! She will get a shock tomorrow when she sees the long lost daughter!

Being an ultimate kpo, I decided to tag along to the gathering tomorrow and checks if anyone cries.... hee hee....
