When the sun refuses to shine

In Siren Is The Night, Arash is a young man living on the streets and while hanging out alone in a parking lot during winter, Nina tries to help him with money.

ARASH:   Maybe I just got the wrong father, right? RIGHT? Maybe I’m supposed to have this horrible fucking life. You know, some people have yachts and mansions as if it’s expected. They drink the finest wine and attend extravagant parties as if it’s forever. Maybe living out here on the street, freezing to death is what I should expect, maybe this is my forever.

You wanna come here giving me money, like I owe you an explanation. I don’t owe you nothin’! Trying to shame me in a nice way. I ain’t falling for it. Not one bit, NINA!.

You go back to your privileged life, with your kids lady and your house and this fancy truck, and all your cash and forget I even existed. Forget your stupid story about knowing my father at the lumber yard. WHAT LUMBER YARD? Like I knew the man. Who cares? Who freaking cares?! You can stick your lumber yard story where the sun refuses to shine.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
