The Known Unknown | Arash

In The Known Unknown, Arash visits his family at their trailer home in order to look after his mom ever since his mother is sick and his grand mother passed away 2 years ago!.

Arash: Doesn’t it concern you that I was away and traveled fourteen years and each day to make sure you haven’t died? I shop for you. And I can’t stand you moaning each time you make your way to the toilet, which is happening too often now.

Think you’d slow down on those behaviour and alcohol you keep popping and HOW DO YOU DO IT? How does a man in your condition guzzle down them alcohol like you do? Hmm?

Stomach out to here, waddling around this trailer like a penguin looking for snow. Lighten the load Pop!

What you want for dinner? Want me to make you some pasta? wait you asked me not to go into the kitchen!!! Hey, I’m talking to you… Cyrus? Oh, I see, just gonna ignore me. Alright.

Alright. I didn’t mean to come down on you like I did but your philosophy on life stinks. Can’t stand the way you live your life. Grand ma never would have tolerated it.

Alright. You say things to me that set me off, things that don’t show no respect for me and what I do for you. You always go head to head with me and then you go old school and ignore me like you do but you ain’t right! Ignoring me won’t make you right! Ahhh, what’s the sense of it. I didn’t mean to upset you and besides I just got here, we shouldn’t peak until later. lol. You get that? We’ll save the shouting after dinner. What’s wrong Cyrus…you are crying?

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!
