There were ten bridesmaids who went on a journey with their lamps to meet the bridegroom before he got the bride. Five of them were prepared and knew that sometimes they might have to wait for the groom to come to get the bride, so they brought extra oil for the lams.
The bridegroom was delayed and after waiting the bridesmaids decided to sleep until he was ready. They kept their lamps on though so that if he did come they'd be ready.
We can't give you oil otherwise we won't have any for ourselves. However, there's a shop down the road so why don't you go buy some more oil there?"
At midnight the bridesmaids heard someone nearby shout out to them, "The groom is here everybody! Quick come meet him before he leaves!"
Everyone got up and started to re-oil their lamps so they could see the groom when he arrived. The foolish girls asked the wise girls for extra oil.

The five bridesmaids went to the shop to buy more oil for their lamps.
