Oh dear! My teacher died during my Zoom class! I don’t know what happened. We all thought he just fell asleep or something. We didn’t know what to do. Like it was literally so weird, he just stopped talking and fell out of his chair. I thought he had hypoglycemia or something, but nope, he died. We were like uhhh what do we do now? And then Bobby was like, “Is he okay? Maybe we should do something.” So, we told him to call 911. It was really weird at first, hearing him trying to explain to the operator what happened. He was like, “Um… hello. My name is Bobby Taylor, and I am in a Zoom class with my teacher. I think he is unconscious.” pause. “Yes ma’am.He was talking, and then stopped, and fell out of his chair.” Then Ellie said, “Bobby tell the lady Mr. Stein’s name.” Bobby said, “Yes ma’am hiss name is Mr. Stein, ummm his first name?… it’s uhhhh… OH it’s Sam. San Stein… No, I don’t, um, I don’t know where e lives. Okay, thank you.” short pause “Guys, the operator said that he probably is okay. They told us to stay on the Zoom call so that the police can ask us questions when they get to his house.” So then, we waited for like an hour until they got there. They asked us questions and stuff, but they didn’t tell us if he was alright. So then we all just assumed that he died, and we left the Zoom call. My dear, you gotta find out what happened. Maybe he didn’t die. Maybe he just has hypoglycemia. Maybe he just needed a little extra candy or something to make his stay awake. We won’t know for a while. But on the bright side, it looks like I don’t have class for two whole weeks!
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!
