In Oha-Ugah Clan, every aspect of life is tied to time-honoured traditions. As Jerome grew under the man he knew as his father, he also learned some of the traditions of his people. He learned that there is a consequence for anyone who violated one of the traditions called Erim, but he refused to heed to it when it affected him. His mother had begged him to pardon her and keep it secret thatthe man he called his father was not really his biological father. She had come to live with her husband with pregnancy from another man. That act is against the Erim. Jerome kept his tongue tied. His mother has broken the Erim and died under the curse. Plagued by the guilt, Jerome began to live what they felt was irresponsible life. He lived in the foreboding that he would die if he claimed hisfather's estate. It is against the Erim to inherit another man's property as one's father.Unaisi was a humble, illiterate village woman. She dreamed of getting married as her friends had and live with her husband in the city. Her lineage was reputed to have broken so many morals against the Erim. Misfortune befell her family and was gossiped by the village people as the wrongs and abominations her foreparents committed in the past. Though she was industrious, loved and admired by everyone, her only desire of a happily married life was shattered...when fate brought her to marry Jerome... With her good nature, will she pay for the wrongs her lineage committed. Did Jerome pay for keeping his tongue tied in? Does these traditions actually work? How did they both pay?
