Arash’s “A Long Nap” Story

Description: Arash attends his grand mother’s funeral, but still doesn’t fully understand what is happening.
Genre: Dramatic

Hi Grandma. They say you are dead buy you just look like you are sleeping. I was told once that everyone will die at some point. That mommy would die, that daddy would die, that you would die, and that one day, I would die. But I never thought that that would actually happen. You have been in my life every day, and I can’t seem to imagine it any other way. Mommy and daddy told me what happened to you yesterday, but it still doesn’t seem real. I mean, your room is still there, just the way you left it. I’ve been going in there to ask if you wanted to do next but you’re not there. Mommy said that you’re an angel now but your lying right here like you’re asleep. Is that what it is? Just one big nap? Well then, I’ll see you when I take a nap. So, I’ll see you later, okay?

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!
