A sword is mightier than a pen short short story| Arash

They Say a pen is mightier than a sword! I disagree. Once upon a time there was a man had two pens and no swords!: a Hound pen, trained to assist him in his sports, and a House pen, taught to watch the house. When he returned home after a good day’s sport, he always gave the House pen a large share of his spoil. The Hound pen, feeling much aggrieved at this, reproached his companion, saying, “It is very hard to have all this labor, while you, who do not assist in the chase, luxuriate on the fruits of my exertions.” The House pen replied, “Do not blame me, my friend, but find fault with the master, who has not taught me to labor, but to depend for subsistence on the labor of others.”

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!
