Ofelia the Octopus, The Marriage Officiant

Hello Visitors from the Blogging from A to Z April 2018 Challenge. This post is for the weekly ABC Wednesday. You can find the letter P post for the April Challenge here.

"Go forward with joy, love, peace, and happiness," said Ofelia the marriage officiant. "I now pronounce you wife and husband, husband and wife."

In the side rows near the bay, Agathe, Edwina, Hazel, Davey and Judge Jennifer sighed in unison as they applauded loudly for the young wedded couple. Hazel the Hammerhead Shark and Davey Daffodil the Dolphin trilled Hurrah, Hurrah as they jumped in and out of the water.

"Dears," said Agathe the Aardvark, shaking her body of water, "I did not bring my umbrella."

"Sorry!" Hazel and Davey said, balancing on their fins. "We'll head over to the wet zone. See you at the reception."

Edwina the Egret contemplated flying with the sea animals, thinking perhaps Iago the Iguana may be there. Agathe nudged her, as she said,"Come back, come back from where ever you are."

"Oh, that was a delightful ceremony," said Edwina. "No overbearingness nor overcloyingness. No obsolete notions. No omission of wonder."

Judge Jennifer the Jack Rabbit jumped in, "Precisely what I was saying to Agathe. Don't you think Ofelia would be the perfect officiant to marry Thomas and Winnie?"

Edwina looked at Agathe. A barely obvious nod assured Edwina of her answer. "Let's go ask Winnie and Thomas then."

"I see them over there with Charlie the Camel and Guy A. Gator," said Agathe, heading in their direction.

"Oh my." Edwina giggled. "Listen to Charlie and Guy crying."

"They get that way at weddings," said Judge Jennifer.

Agathe sighed. "I knew I should've brought my umbrella."
