Dreaming of Being a Knight!

Description: Arash has big dreams about becoming a medieval knight, but instead he’s stuck in his suburban life.
Genre: Comedic

You know, I’ve always wanted to be a knight. Knights get to be praised and go on amazing adventures, fighting dragons and saving princesses! That’s the life for me. The books I read say that you can only be knighted if you come from a noble family or do a great deed. Well, I don’t come from a noble family, but my dad is a governor! That counts right? And I’ve done so many great deeds before! I mean, just yesterday I helped Mrs. Jackson walk her dog! And I don’t have to worry about training, I’ve already got the training I need. I mean, no other kid on the block can climb the large oak tree like I do! That’s basically the same thing as climbing a tower to save a damsel in distress! I guess I’d also have to be brave to be a knight, but I’ve already mastered that too! After all, it’s no easy task scaring away raccoons from trash cans every other day. I’ve tried to prove that I’m brave enough to walk down the streets at night by myself, but Mom won’t let me. No one has recognized how fit I am to be a knight yet, but they will eventually! I believe that someday, I’ll do something so noble that a mighty king will have to knight me. But now, there is a task before me that I must conquer. Every knight has their dragon to slay, and according to my mom, my dragons are the dishes in the sink waiting to be washed. G’day lords and ladies! I’m off to battle the kitchen!

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!
