Immediately, a gaggle of youngsters got here with their bicycles, then the individuals i used to be strolling with began working. I did not. “Why run from children?” I believed.

All of them had big millow formed heads and have been daring and have small ears and massive rounded eyes with no eyebrows and an enormous smile with some tooth exhibiting. They surrounded me. With the shock of their seems I felt the world is popping. They tried to seize me however I managed to get away. I ran to the outdated home they usually have been after me proper behind. The individuals I used to be with have been ready on me by the door and Madi was final. We rushed in and closed the door and checked out one another… The group of youngsters sat by the door exterior surrounding the place. The home is a standard 1970s center japanese home with tall partitions and a steel door. So, we felt we’re within the clear. As soon as we calmed down Madi talked about one thing that me and him will die. I didn’t put any weight to what he stated not after he lower himself of the world for four years due to substance abuse after which bought again in contact however he wasn’t the identical individual. We went inside to the majles, which is the arabic phrase for the room the place males set and socialize. Proper beside the majles there’s one other majles known as majles alnissa, which suggests girls majles. The 2 rooms are linked by a large wood door with plates of glass.
