فارغ از هیاهوی دیگران



یادتان باشد که زمان شما محدود است، پس زمان‌تان را با زندگی‌کردن در زندگی بقیه هدر ندهید. هیچ‌وقت تو دام غم و غصه نیفتید و هیچ وقت نگذارید که هیاهوی بقیه صدای درونی شما را خاموش کند و از همه مهم‌تر این که شهامت این را داشته باشید که از احساس قلبی‌تان و ایمان‌تان پیروی کنید.    استیو‌ جابز


It all startes with self-driving cars


      

     Run Away 

Uncle Sergey let out a long sigh, "Oh, nothing going right for me today, I see him everywhere."
Rocky cried, "You've proved yourself to be a neglectful, easy-going spouse. You feel very protective toward Gloria? then why she was hit by a meteor? why she was alone in the hospital and felt lonely?" Uncle Sergey took a step backward and said, "Sorry, let me explain."
Rocky took a step forward ready to attack, "Don't move a muscle, Mr Glass!"

Sergey looked around to find a hiding place; as he despaired of finding one he started to run. Rocky followed him. Five minutes later they were still turning around the stage amid thunderous applause, and the singer continued singing, as if nothing had happened.



Rocky Times
 Eventually, Rocky was close enough to touch Sergey's arm, but luckily or unluckily he tripped over the kamancheh and fell on Larry's birthday cake. Sergey laughed at him, It was time to slip away.

Rocky, wiping the icing off his frosted face, muttered under his breath, "Why do you leave toys on the floor where someone could trip and fall?" Uncle Larry kept playing guitar at lighting show, as if he had been walking on air.

Rocky glanced around the hall, he saw Sergey nowhere. When he was beginning to despair Mino called to him, "Come here, I can see Uncle Sergey, he's moving under the seats." As Rocky jumped off the stage, the lights went out and the hall was plunged into darkness. All the little girls started screaming together.

So soon someone turned on the lights, and Rocky could see Sergey through the crowd. Gloria cried, "He isn't Sergey, it's a robot!" Pityingly, Rocky ignored her and bounded madly toward Sergey in trendy clothes.
After a ten-minutes chase, Sergey still was brimful of energy. He struggled to get away from Rocky, so he rushed for the stage. Rocky also chased him.

Back on stage, unfriendly Sergey said to Larry, "I'm sorry to interrupt you, but you have to stop singing immediately! the craft will fly in few minutes. Why don't you take a seat?" so Uncle Larry had to leave the stage.

As both of the fanatical supporters were on the stage. Rocky said grinning, "Sorry, but you can't run away, Mr. Glass!" Sergey stood right in the center of the stage and said smirking, "Practice makes perfect, why don't you go driving this night? you can borrow your sister's car." Rocky glowered at him, "You tempt me to crash your luxury auto into wall." "Look out, Rocky!" Gloria warned him over and over again, and Rocky continued to ignore what she said.
 

Sergey giggled, "My car? you don't even dare touch me." Rocky's eyes got full of fire, he took a step toward him. Now Sergey was near at hand him. Poor Gloria pleaded, "No no, Rocky. Come back here." "Come on, come here this instant!" Mino, Parmis and Armis shouted as they ran to the stage. Gloria couldn't stand idly by so she joined them. Uncle Larry looked completely puzzled.

In face, there was a hatchway in the floor, Poor Rocky did not know this. When the door burst open Rocky with that humanoid robot tumbled down and disappeared from view. Just as the hatchway was closed, Uncle Sergey turned up on the stage and said ruefully, "I'm really sorry Rocky can't come with us. Don't worry about Rocky, he's OK. Now, fasten your seat belts please, the craft is ready for take-off. Hope you enjoy the flight!" he turned to Gloria and the girls and ordered them to went back to their seats, they did not accept and remained over there.
 

A few minutes later, the Emerald castle transformed into a spacecraft like magic, then took off the islet.
Uncle Larry asked, "Is it set on automatic pilot?"
Uncle Sergey shook his head, "No, Eric pilots the aircraft."
Uncle Larry turned pale, "Eric? you must be joking, you need great skill to fly a plane!"

Uncle Sergey, "Don't worry, GD helps him. Plus, Eric is a really expert--" he had to leave his sentence unfinished as the spacecraft tiled to one side, four of protesters softly fell to the floor and the spacecraft began to descend so suddenly. Pilot Eric manged to get the craft airborne, he made good finally.

When it was airborne again, Gloria said to Sergey with tears in her eyes, "We can't leave Rocky behind." Parmis nodded, "Yeah, this islet is uninhabited. Have a heart, Uncle Sergey!" Armis cried, "That's unfair, I hate you. Rocky is like our brother." Mino said, "Don't worry, I call a copter for him!"

They could see Rocky from the spacecraft. First he made an attempt to break the record for the high jump. After he failed he beat Glassy broken-down, then yelled, "You're fired, Mr. Glass. I'll find you as soon as possible and teach you a historic lesson."

Gloria hated seeing disappointed brother. She sighed deeply, "We gave him warning of the robot, but he ignored all of them.Why my little brother is so thoughtless? why?" She flung herself to the floor and started to sob uncontrollably. Uncle Sergey tired to pacified her. Gloria shouted at him, "Why Sergey, why? Rocky is my little brother, how could you be so stupid?" and ran away.

Sergey turned to Larry, "I'm really Sorry, Larry. I lost my temper because of tiredness. Last night
I hardly slept a wink last night, because I had to look after Gloria, see, I like Rocky, but I couldn't bear him hovering around me."
Uncle Larry shook his head sadly, "Rocky is your brother-in-law, try and be friendlier to him."
 --, "I'll try. He's got emotional problem--Mr. Stone, his trainer is aboard, and his father is sick, and driving test... well, how do you usually get to work?"
Uncle Larry, "Why?"
--,"I want to come with you. I work for Google until Rocky would pass his driving test. Next, I hit the road. I must water the flowers."
--, "Flowers?"
--, "Well, we're growing flowers in the moon, we intend to build a large greenhouse over there."
--, "But plants need light and water, you say that the life exists on the moon!"

Uncle Sergey told him about his late research. He said Gloria has discovered a wonderful plant. It grew without air and light and only needed watering twice a year.




The spacecraft was flying at a very high speed without vibrating, as the passengers enjoyed watching the stars through the glazed roof. Uncle Larry came up to Pilot Eric and asked, "Amazing! You navigate the craft expertly, where did you learn to fly?"
Uncle Eric replied, "Google."
Uncle Larry, "Really? now, where are we flying?"
Uncle Eric, "Google."

That night Mountain View glinted in the light of the craft flying above the clouds and cast its soft glow on the town below. The streets and beach almost emptied of people and all the lines were busy because of reports of UFO sighting.

Witnesses reported: "A huge, small, quiet, noisy subject hovered over the town. There was a blue aura around it. UFO is in the form of Saturn, triangle, boomerang, double hat, football-shaped, v-shaped and so on. The aliens tried to abduct about hundred people."

 "National UFO Reporting Center" and "Alien UFO Research" looked fully confused about all these unexpected reports, "Does it make noise? you're sure?"





 Gloria is Upset

 
 Alone in shadow, Gloria was in a sulk. Sergey said ruefully, "No one is sorrier than I about what happened. I let you down, Glory," he swallowed and forced back his tears, "It is true that I'm a neglectful, easy-going husband, I'm feeling guilty about leaving you in the hospital, and also about Rocky...give me a chance to show you what I feel--"

Gloria said, weeping, "How could you be such a unfeeling man? Rocky suffered from a terrible headache."
--, "I can really sympathize with him so I had one when I was in the space."
She folded her arms and stared at Sergey, "Really? how are feeling now?"


Uncle Sergey sat next to her, "I'm feeling a lot better now. What I want to find happiness for us. Can you forgive me?"
--"Let's talk over coffee."

Uncle Sergey ran to bring two cups of coffee, and Aunt Glory stared up at the distant stars, smiling.



 
ALIEN visited Google
 
Finally, Aliens arrived in Google. The UFO landed softly and the party started promptly. Uncle Larry blew out the candles, then he was busy unwrapping his birthday presents eagerly. He started off with the biggest present which was tied with a gold silk ribbon beautifully.

"Who's this present from?" Uncle Larry asked as he untied the ribbon. The little girls looked at Parmis and giggled. Parmis glowed, "Please accept this little present, Uncle Larry."

A sweet smile came to her uncle's face. Uncle Larry quickly unwrapped the present. As the floral green wrapping paper was removed from the big package Uncle Larry exclaimed in delight, "Wow! It's highly expensive."

Parmis said, grinning, "Now your steaming coffee awaits you at home wherever you are. This smart coffee maker connects to your cell and takes your order via an android app."

Uncle Larry giggled, “Thanks a lot. I really need it.”
Sergey turned to Larry, "Can I use your cell to make a black coffee?"
Uncle Larry shook his head, "Nope."

After that, Uncle Larry took the smallest present. It was a mobile game named “Haftseen". Armis seemed so excited. Her silky dress was blue the color of her eyes and her present. "I hope you enjoy this android game. I wrote the programing cods and designed it all by myself. It's about a Haft-Seen gatherer just like you. The main character won't get home, unless he/she collects all items of Haft-seen." Armis said, pointing at the Blu-ray Disk.

Uncle Larry, “That's great! Next time I try to arrive here sooner. I wanna collect seven items as of tomorrow, until I'll be good at it." he smiled at his assistant, "I'll make my aide play this android game every day."
 
Mr. Assistant shook his head, “No No, you can't. I don’t like to set the Haft-seen table any longer.”
With a despairing look, Armis stared up at Uncle Larry when she heard Mr. Assistant's remark.

“Don't worry! he was just joking. Mister is so kind-hearted that he never leaves his boss alone. He's more than an aide, he's a close friend.” Uncle Larry said to Armis.

Uncle Sergey asked, "Can I use your cell to play "Haftseen" game?"
Uncle Larry shook his head, "Nope."



Mino's present took everyone badly by surprise. No one thought that this little girl could be so calculating. She had brought a fireproof pair of shoes as a present.  
“Luckily, I didn't have to guess your shoe size, Uncle Larry. The fireproof shoes are ideal for "Char_shanbe Suri". I put your mind at ease, your shoes won't be burnt next Char_shanbe Suri.” she said.

Uncle Larry broke out in a cold sweat when he thought back to that night he had to fight the flames. He swallowed hard and forced a smile, “ Thanks, Mino. I don't mean to hurt your feelings, but I won't jump over the fire again.”

Mino, “You must be joking! All the Islanders enjoyed Char_Shanbe Suri, the roaring fire is really interesting.”

Uncle Larry turned to Uncle Sergey, "It all started with self-driving cars. We drew a big ice-cream on the desert floor by driver less cars, then lit bonfires around it. Pity you didn't see it.“
 

Uncle Sergey giggled, “That's right, that night I was in shadow. we couldn't see your beautiful work, because we were on the other side of moon. What's your shoes story, they caught fire?”
Uncle Larry, “Yes, the fire was really huge.”

Mino, “No, it wasn't. You didn't have much faith. Abraham was thrown into the fire, but the blazing fire didn't harm him. Because he believed in the God. Now, next year when we'll hold Char_shanbe Suri festival you wonder, well, if you'll come to jump over the bonfire again?"
His lips curved into a bitter smile, “I hope not.”



Martin had decorated his present with yellow and green buttons. Just as Uncle Larry took the flag and map of Brazil out of the package Martin said loudly,  “Many happy turns, have a good trip.”
Uncle Larry’s eyes rounded, “Trip?”

Martin, “Parmis said you gonna travel to Rio de Janeiro in August."
Larry nodded, “Oh yes, Rio 2016 Olympics, thank you for your pretty present."

 



Mark had brought a luxury "scrabble game" with golden tiles, “Many happy turns, Larry.  So you founded the Alphabet Inc last summer, I thought you would like this. Enjoy!" Mark said.

Uncle Larry, “Yes, that’s right. I like alphabet, so do you. Alphabet means book for you, and Alphabet is everything for me. Thanks for your luxury present, Mark.”
 

 
Boring, Boring, Boring!
 
There were no gifts left. Tina jumped up onto the stage and said, "I guess it's my turn to surprise you." She said to Uncle Larry, "Happy birthday to you, I have a funny present for you, you have to watch it. honestly, your trip was a wonderful subject for video."  
Uncle Larry smiled, "Thanks Tina."

A big grin spread across her face as she said to Parmis, "Turn off the lights, please;  I wanna show my amazing video."


The lights were off only for forty three seconds, then the lights were on again.


Tina let out a cold shriek, "Help! Help! please turn off the lights!" 
Mino folded her arms and glared at Tina, "I'm really sorry to stop that 180-minute video, but it sends us to sleep. Look at the people sitting over there, a few peoples are asleep right now." 
Parmis, "Check the time, we have no time to watch your video."

Mahta said pleadingly, "We've not haven dinner yet, I'm awfully hungry." 
Uncle Sergey nodded, "That's right, Let's continue the party. Gloria and I have not handed our preset to Larry yet."

Tina shook her head timidly, "Sorry, why I am so thoughtless."


Uncle Sergey turned to Larry, "Congratulations on your forty-third birthday. You look younger than your age." 

Uncle Larry stared at his sunken eyes and said, "Thank you. But you have aged since I saw you last time."

 



12 years a slave- I love this movie
 
Uncle Sergey said, "So Moon's department stores accepted neither Google wallet nor American express, I couldn't buy a valuable present for you. However, I didn't come empty-handed." He jammed his hand into his jeans pocket and took out a fistful of "bolts and nuts" and said, "My present for you. Keep them for a rainy day."
Uncle Larry embraced him and said, "They're beautiful, thanks."

Uncle Sergey explained, "They belonged to Ranger 4. Gloria and I have been fully occupied disassembling Ranger 4 for months.”
Uncle Larry stared at his hallow eyes, “What? don't pull my leg.”
Uncle Sergey shook his head, ”No, I told truth,  Gloria believes that Moon isn't our garbage dump. She made me dismantle Ranger 4 and mop the Moon's dusty surface."

Gloria slapped herself in the face, "Sergey! Did you bring the mop and pail?"
Uncle Sergey shook his head timidly, "No, I only brought you."
Gloria, "Next time, bring our mop."
 
Parmis exclaimed in horror, “Oh, the Moon's surface has been littered with wreckage, we must save the Moon. When can we travel, Uncle Larry?”
Uncle Larry grinned, "It only happened once in a blue Moon."

Mino's eyes shone, "I'll come with you. Mahta has plenty of old stuffed animals, I can leave them on the moon."
Armis , "Yeah, we must travel to moon to find Aunt Glory's mop."
"Can I make "12 years a slave" on the moon? I love this movie," Tina asked, pointing at Uncle Sergey.

Uncle Larry glared at them, “No, I said we would never travel to the Moon. Look at Aunt Glory, maybe a meteorite will hit you.”
Parmis pursed her lips, “We don't scare easily, falling stars are everywhere."

Uncle Larry, “That's right. Then we travel to the moon when you would be as tall as Rocky.”
 
Rocky was about two meters in height; as Parmis compared her Mom's height with him, she burst into tears and run away. Parmis’s Mum glowered at Uncle Larry, "You made her cry."
Uncle Larry said, “I didn’t mean that. I tried to change her mind; she is too young to travel to the Moon.” 



 

Uncle Sergey asked Mr. Assistant, "Then where is your present?"
Mr. Assistant smiled proudly, "I presented a dozen GPS socks to Larry before midday."
Sergey's forehead wrinkled in a frown, "What's that?"
Mr. Assistant replied, "Oh, my new invention." 

A grin spread across GD's face, he came up to Larry and said happily, “Happy birthday Larry! 43 cartoons will be my present to you. Someday I will draw them, someday, so you have to be patient....Let me check my calendar... Mother's Day, Teacher's Day, Father's Day, Rio 2016 Olympics, another Olympics, summer, fall, Halloween, US election, thanksgiving, Xmas, New Year, winter, spring... oh, yes, they'll be ready next summer."  

Uncle Larry, “Don't hurry, you can draw them whenever you want, just draw me funny and lovely.” 
GD, “Fun? It’s not easy, but I’ll try.”










Writer, “Well, I hope to finish this story by the end of the summer.”
Uncle Larry, “Fall, isn’t it so soon? I prefer winter. I enjoy reading the long stories, and please delete that commercial for "Feech" from it."
Writer frowns, "But it..."
Uncle Larry, "Not buts."

Uncle Sergey, "I object, if she finishes your story until winter so when she will write my story?
 
Someone said, “Which story? you don't have any stories.”
Uncle Sergey turned his attention to that little girl with tear-stained cheeks and asked, "Why? just for we won't take you to the moon? Try and be friendlier to me, Parmis."
 
Parmis, “No, just for Aunt Gloria said she would have a surprise birthday party for you.”

Sergey and Gloria exchanged glances.
Gloria, "flowers, we must return home."
Sergey, "That's right, we must build a greenhouse there."
Gloria smiled, "Yes, we'll celebrate your birthday at the moon."
Sergey, "Awesome! and how about Rocky?"
Gloria, "Certainly my family will be there."

Sergey, “Great! but I think I’m too old to have a birthday party."
Uncle Larry laughed, "Poor Sergey! but there is no age limit for having a birthday party."









After that, the best part came; dinner, there were too many dishes to choose from-- deciding certainly wasn't easy, especially if one had just returned from the space. After a five-minute's indecision, Uncle Sergey selected a plate of spaghetti. Gloria preferred vegetarian dish. At the end of meal, they all had cake, ice-cream and Samanu as they were dancing in time to the music. 

The party continued until a quarter after 10 at night. Uncle Larry handed out party favors, Google Tablets, to the children in the spacecraft. Next, he sang his favorite song several times, his good performance brought the house down, as usual. Forty three seconds of Tina's video also had been shown three or four times. 

When Parmis shouted, "There's no food left, So Bye. Thanks for coming." the celebration finished and they all emptied out onto Google's garden. 

Uncle Larry asked Parmis, “Are you sure that the spacecraft won’t be explode right now? “ 
Parmis shrugged, “I don’t know.” 
Uncle Larry, “So who exploded the bridge?”  
Parmis, “Well, anyone could have exploded it, no one has accepted responsibility for the explosion so far.”


They came cross Rocky in the parking lot. Rocky was leaning against Uncle Sergey's car, holding a bowl of soup. He waved hello to Uncle Larry and ran forward. Rocky said, smiling, "Happy birthday Uncle Larry...I'm sorry about what happened... Alphabet soup just for you." 
Uncle Larry smiled back, "Wow! I love alphabet soup."




Uncle Sergey and Gloria were coming toward the auto as Rocky appeared. He said, grinning, "Mr Glass, look! The Rock hasn't been yet eaten away by the sea. Gloria permitted me to drive your car. " 
Uncle Sergey immediately run away, and Gloria laughed loudly. However, It worries me to think what may happen. 


The parking lot soon emptied as soon as it started to rain. Parmis was still thinking of travel, she asked her Mom, "Can tablets make me grow taller?"

Noon the forgotten man returned from moon

💕💕Happy Birthday Leila💕💕

      
Happy Birthday To You
Suddenly, the lights were on, and "Happy birthday" was thundered. Naturally, they found themselves in a dreamy hall surrounded by their friends. Expectantly, the little fans were holding a big banner said, "Welcome Home!"


On the stage in the spotlight 

Uncle Larry's eyes clouded with tears, and a sunny smile came to his lips; yeah, they make it, they planted a flag on the summit, they joined their friends for the party, they stood on stage.

The spotlights shed a circle of light on the center of stage. As the winning team stood proudly in the spotlight, the eager crowd started to applaud them. Now a smile hovered on the Assistant's lips and dread was faded.
 

THANK my FRIENDS for Their HELP
Uncle Larry thankfully put his arm around his right-hand man's shoulders and proudly smiled at the tolerant audience; Nearly 200 friends packed into the emerald hall, everything was golden green and everyone was there: Parmis, Armis, Mino, Mahta, Tina, Eric and Martin all in Google Glass, even Sergey. He also was there, yet without Gloria! Gd and Sergey were sitting next to each other. It was most odd how trendy he was wearing!


The hall was simply decorated; paper lanterns and balloons were only decorations. His birthday cake with icing edges was sat on a glass table on the stage. The cake was glowing like a star with 43 lit candles on.
 

The area of the stage was not very big, it was about ten square meters and covered with glittery sand. Some birthday presents were laid out here and there. Someone had written on the sand: "Help my tired hands take your birthday presents, Uncle."

The same man I missed him!
Uncle Larry waved at the audience, "Hi, we drop in just to have the cake."
The crowd laughed at his joke. Uncle Larry continued, "First of all, I'm really grateful to my best aide for all his help, I couldn't overcome seven levels without his aid. Lastly, I'd like to thank you all sincerely, especially Sergey." Laughter glinted in his eyes as he stared at Sergey and burst into song, "
             Unless my eyes deceive me,
                                      it's him, Glassy!
                                                               Just SEE!
      It's him,
                  the same man I missed him!
                                                                Just SEE! 
 Author,            
        the alien sitting there is the same sate---llites explorer!
                                                                                            Just SEE! 
 Noon the forgotten man returned from moon,
                             since his tender look melt ice of Saturn's moon! 
                                                                                                Just SEE! 

It's him,
            the same man I missed him!! 
                                                          Just SEE!
      Unless my eyes deceive me,
                                                  it's him, Glassy!
                                                                            Just SEE!"

Here he is, the one and only Sergey
The audience was thrilled by Larry's funny song. Mr. Assistant said, "Excellent! What the work was?"
Uncle Larry ran his fingers through hair and laughed, "Oh, I just improvised. I only tried to express how delighted to see Sergey."
 

Mr. Assistant nodded, "Yes, I also expected not to see Sergey here. He was thought to be in outer space."
Uncle Larry smiled at Sergey, "Welcome back to earth, Sergey. Climb up here beside us."



Larry's friendly request was met with a frosty silence; Sergey remained motionless and smiled distantly, with no light in the eyes. Everyone realized that Uncle Larry was entirely unhappy with his glassy look. Sergey must be tired of watching stars, Uncle Larry thought. 

Suddenly the overhead spotlights twinkled and one of the faithful fans jumped up onto the stage. Mr. Assistant jumped back, his mouth dropping open in surprise. Uncle Larry looked astonished, "Who's this man?" 


The fan hugged him tightly and replied, "It's him, the same man you missed him. I missed you too. What a glassy song!"
Uncle Larry obviously seemed puzzled; for several times his blue eyes shifted from the stage to the seats, from starry eyes to distant stare, from Sergey to Sergey, lastly his eyes fixed on Sergey standing on the stage.



Although both men resembled each other, Uncle Larry immediately recognized real Sergey from his starry eyes, his wide grin.
Sergey was thinner than he was last summer, and considerably suffering from the lack of sleep, his hollow red eyes showed this.


Sergey, "It's me, Sergey, your best friend. I'm already late."
_, "Where have you been? do you recall when you call last time?"
_, "You're right, we've been out of touch for a couple of months. Between you and me, Gloria and I were working on a research project on the moon, I had to keep it secret from my friends."


_, "A research project? we've been worried sick."
_, "I'm sorry. I was worried that I wouldn't see you again. I just arrived, and I'm really happy to see you again." 


A cold fish in suit 
After they shed a few tears, Uncle Larry asked, "Who's that man?"
Uncle Sergey looked at fake Sergey "oh, it's a humanoid robot. It's an exact copy of me. Do you like him?"
Uncle Larry grimaced at the robot, "No, Glassy is nice, but his eyes are empty, he looks very unfriendly."
"No, he's lovely. Look!" Uncle Sergey said as he ordered the humanoid robot to dance. The robot came on stage and danced amid clapping and cheering.


Glassy returned to Uncle Larry, "Sergey couldn't come to your party so Glassy came instead."
Uncle Sergey explained, "Well, Gloria didn't let me return home. I  didn't want to let you down by not coming your party, so I sent Glassy instead. Luckily, this morning our research project was stopped for one month or two, so I could attend the party." 


"Where is Gloria? you," Uncle Larry asked. "you separated?"
Uncle Sergey went pale, then said in a low, broken voice, "No,Glory...Glory, Unfortunately, she..."
--, "Gloria...died?"
 

Thank my lucky stars
The news was so shocking that a sudden silence fell over the hall, and atmosphere went glacial. Now the mournful friends all were staring at the widower.
 

Uncle Sergey swallowed hard and forced a smile, “No,  you misunderstood, Glory's still alive. Well, we were walking on the moon, then Rocky was in the hospital, that meteorite was after me, so I had to run away--."

Uncle Larry interrupted him, obviously confused “Rocky, Meteorite? exactly what happened?"



Uncle Sergey, "Well, this morning Gloria and I enjoyed walking on the moon. I was watching the sky, while she was talking about her buying a new sport car. She was so excited.

The pitch-black sky Suddenly turned glow and Gloria stared up. She said with a long sigh, "Oh no, seeing a falling star means you'll travel very soon."
I smiled brightly, "Really?"

The meteor swiftly came flying toward us.Thank my lucky stars that I ducked as meteorite went past my head, but Poor Gloria wasn't lucky. She stared until the falling stone hit her.
As I heard Gloria call out in pain, I was confident that we'd be destined to travel soon.
 
Before long we left for the earth.Our trip home took about nine hours. It was five o'clock in Moscow when we arrived in Mountain view."
 

Uncle Larry gaped at him in disbelief, "Goodness me, no!"
Uncle Sergey smiled, "Fate, it sentenced that we'd attend your party. Back in Mountain view, Glory was rushed to the hospital at once."
-- "How is she? is she badly hurt?"



Sergey laughed,"Thankfully, she wasn't seriously hurt. Luckily, the meteorite left only a small bump, as much as a tennis ball, on her head. Hopefully, she'll be discharged from the hospital very soon."
--"I hope so. It's really strange that a meteorite strikes someone, her family has to be shocked."
IMPROVISE OWN PRAYER
Uncle Sergey hung his head. Uncle Larry sensed the embarrassment in his sunken eyes. "Haven't you told her family yet?" he asked.

--, "Not yet. But I think they are standing by her right now, because I accidentally saw Rocky in the hospital. Well, as the nurse put a Band-Aid on Glory's head, I left the room.

Wandering in the long white corridor trying to call you. About an hour had gone by, yet I had not spoken with you. I felt completely lonely that something frightening happened.



Yes, my mouth felt fully dry as a 3d touch of a heavy hand descended on my shoulder. "Dracula!" I thought. I quickly turned around and found Rocky there in the bright blue uniform. Seeing Rocky there meant I had to escape as quick as a flash, though I froze to the spot.

For a while Rocky stared at me. Then he threw himself into my arms and cried loudly, "Oh Mr Glass, I was wrong about you, you're very kind; you came to the hospital to visit me, you have a heart of gold. When did you get back? How did you know? Robert told you? really I didn't expect you to return to earth just for me."

As I saw his friendly manner, I found my voice and said, "So you're like my younger brother, Rocky. I hope you're better soon."
Rocky said, pointing at his head, "Thanks. I'm getting better, though my head still hurts."

--, "So when you will be discharge?"
--"I don't know. I've been here since this morning, but they don't allow me to go home."


My eyebrows were raised in surprise, "Since when?"
--, "I told, this morning. I was brewing coffee, all at once I felt a sharp pain in my head, as if the lightning struck me. It badly hurt, so Robert took me to the hospital.



"They've not found the main cause of my headache yet, they said the rest is only cure for it. In my view, it's all my driving test's fault. I'm taking my driver's test tomorrow. My family expects too much of me; I always turns into a physical wreck at exams. Gloria's promised me a new car if I'll pass my driving test." he looked around, "Then where is Gloria?"

I said in a steady voice, "She's here, in the hospital, you'll see her soon. What's your favorite--" at that point, I was interrupted by Robert's shout.
Robert called to Rocky, "Come here this instant. Glory is here. Poor Gloria is covered in bumps and bruises."

Rocky's face got red, he glared at me and muttered something. My face got white when I noticed his muscular arms. I knew I had to get away from him, So I ran as quickly as I could, and never looked back. I sat in my car and drove out to the islet. I knew where you were, because Parmis, GD, Eric, Gloria and I had planned your party before our honeymoon." he gave a long, weary sigh, "I'm feeling guilty to leave Glory alone in the hospital, I hope she forgives me. It's not odd that Rocky and I were in the same hospital?"


Uncle Larry, "No, because there was Glass hospital"
--, "That's right." 



At that point Parmis shouted, "Come on, Come on, blow out the candles, we're tired of sitting here."
Uncle Larry smiled, "All right, first let me sing you my newest song: "Aliens' Spacecraft"
Uncle Sergey rounded his lips and said, "Great, Larry sings and I whistle a tune. Are you ready"
 

The eager crowd whistled to show their agreement. Uncle Larry breathed deeply before bursting into song. Playing the Kamancheh singing his catchy song. Uncle Sergey also kept on whistling to the tune of "Aliens' Spacecraft" beautifully. Everyone agreed that they both put themselves heart into the song.


Cheering was thundered, and flowers was thrown onto the stage in appreciation. Uncle Larry bowed to the audience and placed the kamancheh on the floor.
"If I had my Guitar," Uncle Larry thought. At that time someone in the crowd threw him a guitar. Uncle Larry's eyes shone as he caught the guitar, he beamed at Uncle Eric, the same thrower.

As Uncle Larry strummed on his guitar, a helicopter buzzed overhead. Soon Sergey's Google Glass twinkled, and he received a message from "Watch", the robot who was posted outside the building, " A man claims he is a relative of yours. He tries to enter the building."


Uncle Sergey responded immediately, "Watch, Don't let him in." After he silently prayed for his life.


unexpected arrival 
There was an aura of glory around the stage; Uncle Larry strummed on his guitar as he sang, and the audience applauded. However, the confusion broke out in the party as a smoke grenade was thrown at the singer on the stage. Uncle Sergey jumped back and glared at Parmis.

Uncle Larry was so deep in performance that he didn't see the grenade falling on the stage. Parmis exclaimed with delight, "Cool! whose grenade was that?" Her mother shouted at her, "I've told you not to do this." Armis glanced around and said with a laugh, "Rocky, he threw it."
Yes, Rocky was there with his sister who her head wrapped in bandage. Rocky glared at Uncle Sergey and muttered.

 

Mino's eyes shone, "Oh, Rocky!" she ran forward to shake his hand.  Sergey was glad and sad at the same time, he was glad to see Gloria safe and sound, and sad to see Rocky in there."Escape before it's too late." Uncle Sergey thought.
Rocky yelled, "Mr Glass, you have no right to stop us from going in here. I like to congratulate Uncle Larry on his birthday. " 


Best Wishes

A Brave Move

  
     Fountains of light
They entered a bare hallway; Not everyone welcomed, Not music played.  Mr. Assistant who was tired of Parmis's hollow promises shook his head sadly, a faint smile still was on Larry's face. Next, the red carpet was rolled out like magic right when Uncle Larry was beginning to despair. As they walked on the red carpet, the lights which were set in the floor turned on, sending fountains of light into the air.
The red carpet continued straight as an arrow to a double doors. They passed through the tunnel of lights proudly and stopped in front of the door. It was ajar and had a birthday cake sticker on.

Uncle Larry stood hesitantly, his hair was glinting in the light. All at once, a stuffed hedgehog rolled into the room, and then a balloon popped sounding like gunshot. Uncle Larry's heart was brimming over with delight, now he was certain about the party; his friends were waiting for him in the room.
Behind the door the atmosphere was glacial. Not everybody were there but seven stuffed hedgehogs. Mr. Assistant asked furiously,"Then where are they?" Uncle Larry shrugged, "I have no idea."

They stood by the door and looked around. There was an L-shaped room with large linoleum floor tiles. All the forty-five numbered tiles were yellowy brown except two tiles. They were green. Some homemade cupcakes were on the 43rd tile. There was also a golden cannon in the middle of room promising horror.

Uncle Larry could tell at a glance that they were in a dangerous situation. "She bakes the most delicious cupcakes, I've ever had." his assistant thought, staring at the cupcakes. He decided to go toward the cupcakes, but he stopped because of Larry's warning. "Stay over here! we're in a minefield."Uncle Larry warned.

Mr. Assistant laughed hollowly, "Landmine, You must be kidding!" Uncle Larry shook his head, "No, I didn't mean to startle you. However, if you took a look around, you notice the warning signs are everywhere: hedgehogs, yellow tiles and cannon!"

Mr. Assistant said, smirking, "Ho! ho! ho! fake bombs, I'm tired of Parmis's hollow threats. I gonna eat the cakes right now." He ignored the warning signs and dropped the Haft-seen basket on the second tile, before Uncle Larry could shout, "Don't touch the floor."

Uncle Larry shut his eyes tight. The basket fell on the second square, the yellowy brown tile turned green. Uncle Larry sighed with relief that the tile was safe. Mr. Assistant gave a sharp cry and  jumped back in shock, However, it wasn't all the surprise. 



The glittery sand flowed down from the sand-way, three tiles turned into fertile soil and three trees rose up vertically out of the ground. Each tree had a window with a cuckoo clock. The windows opened one after the other, cuckoos came out, spread their wings, and sounded cuckoo just one time.

“They planted a landmine over there.” Uncle Larry said, pointing at the tile among the trees.
Mr. Assistant’s eyebrows arched, “How do you know this?”
Uncle Larry explained, “This game is similar to  "Minesweeper", at attempt to get to the 45th cell, you have to determine the landmines, set the clocks for eight o'clock and place the Haft-seen collection on the 43rd cell.  Be careful,  the Green cells are safe, and the clocks are clue for determining mines."

 Mr. Assistant’s eyes sparkled with excitement, “I caught. So a landmine set in the 9th cell.”
Uncle Larry rolled up his sleeves, “That’s right! it is child’s play. But don't forget to guess and act very fast, soon the sand will be over."
"all right, I'm ready." Mr. Assistant said as he started to roll up his jeans to his knees. Uncle Larry couldn't help laughing. Mr. Assistant said, "Don't laugh, rolled-up jeans are in fashion."

Uncle Larry smiled, "Oh, I don't know. However, don't worry about your life. I play Minesweeper very well."
Mr. Assistant took Larry's presents out of the basket and said, "Great. I play chess very well."
Uncle Larry went to the trees and set them for the correct time. After that he calmly walked toward the 10th cell and stamped his feet to emerge next clues.


The 10th turned green and some trees appeared around. Uncle Larry learned the next landmine where was. Mr. Assistant kept his startled eyes fixed on him. Uncle kept on finding the bombs as he moved forward inch by inch. The sand was falling swiftly, and clocks were ticking away.
It was a long way from the first tile to the last tile on the left. Uncle Larry found five bombs which were hidden at this area. When he arrived at 25th tile he waved his hand at his assistant.

"I guess it's my turn to sweep the mines." Mr. Assistant said. Uncle Larry nodded, "There are only two bombs left. Please help me."
"I'd be pleased to help you if I can" Mr. Assistant said as he took a hesitate step to the next cell. As he found the sixth landmine, Uncle Larry shouted, "Excellent, set the clock and keep on moving."


A Brave Move
 After Mr. Assistant determined  7th landmine, he stood on the 43rd cell, next to the 45th tile. The endless ticking of clocks, flying the grains of sand everywhere, fast beating of the hearts. He was only a step away the last cell, and the last grain of sand was falling. "No, you can't drop--I'm not ready yet." Mr. Assistant shouted as he sidled the Haft-seen basket to the 45th tile, then crammed his mouth with cupcake.
The cuckoo clocks started to whirr before striking eight. The last grain of sand fell on the floor, the golden cannon fired a blossom ball into the air at the arrival of new year. The drums were beating in distance. Uncle Larry hugged his assistant and said, “Eide shoma mobarak.” The war was all over, Mr. Assistant let out a relief sigh; the spring was there.
They stood there, watching the garden. All the trees came into bloom, and the birds filled their branches happily. All the bombs exploded and seven springs welled up through the ground, babbling brooks ran across the former minefield. Mr. Assistant shut his eyes tight, splashed the fresh water on his face, then danced about like a child. The room smelled of Spring.




Some minutes after , an elegant kamancheh with a bow hovered above the 43rd square. Then, a circular column of blue light emanated from the sand-way. Uncle Larry immediately grabbed the musical instrument, leaped in the tractor-beam, and blinked at his friend, "Let's go to the second floor with flying carpet!" Mr. Assistant's eyes rounded in horror, "OMG, aliens!"

Uncle Larry began to play the kamancheh while his assistant joined him. Just as the charming music hung in the air,  they floated upward like smoke which rises through the chimney.


Uncle Larry kept on playing the kamancheh until the tractor-beam left them on the second floor and became invisible. They were in a silent place with no lights on. Mr. Assistant sighed deeply, "That little girl's gonna give me a heart attack tonight." Uncle Larry thought what's the next?
