See What Happens
The candles went out, and the room was plunged into darkness; it was time to go, so they left the room hastily.
Uncle Larry blew out a breath, " I feel better now, I wasn't able to breathe there." then turned on his flashlight. Shining it in his assistant's face, he asked, "Have you brought everything with you?"
Mr. Assistant lifted his basket up, shook it in Larry's face, he said, "Yes, everything. Our Haft-Seen Collection is here, sound and safe."
Uncle Larry, dropping the golden key in the basket, said, "Great! let's go to the next tunnel. The exit must be over there."
Mr. Assistant's eyebrows knitted together in confusion; Uncle Larry had told him that the door was locked, so how he would unlock the door? It seemed that he had missed something. Mr. Assistant was deep in thought when Larry proudly showed him a card, as if he could have read his mind. "Don't be surprised, now we have the key as well as the code number!" Uncle Larry said.
Mr. Assistant looked even more puzzled now, "What's this card for? have you hidden something from me?"
--, "This key card was pasted on the door. I tried to open the door with it, but it was impossible, I didn't know the password."
Mr. Assistant put his basket down, only to look closely at the card. "Nice card, is it Parmis's?" he asked.
The plastic card was a deep coffee color that green words stood out clearly against the dark background. Mr. Assistant couldn't read the words, they were written in Farsi script. On the back of the card there was a beautiful Iranian carpet with this sentence, "What is the best way of cleaning a carpet, especially after winter?"
Mr. Assistant turned to Larry, "Well, what's the best way of cleaning a carpet?"
"Washing the carpet... I tried it before, but the door didn't open." Uncle Larry replied as he began walking along the tunnel. Mr. Assistant didn't follow him, he was standing there, staring at his Easter bunny with pain in his eyes, then closed his eyes, broke off its head, crammed his mouth with the head, took his basket, and ran fast to join his friend.
As Uncle Larry saw him, shook his head sadly, "Don't you think it's bad for your heath eating too much chocolate?"
"Take it easy, I'm awfully hungry... then you cracked the code, so what's it?" Mr. Assistant asked, chewing chocolate. Uncle Larry shook his head again, "Sorry, don't ask me."
Mr. Assistant laughed, "Calm down, I was only joking."
The elevator cab was well lit by the LED ceiling lights, the air was filled with aroma of fresh coffee and Iranian hyacinth, Uncle Larry enjoyed drinking his coffee, and Mr. Assistant was busy with picking confetti off his clothes, everything looked pretty, and any dragons hadn't appear yet.
There was only one cupcake left in the box. Uncle Larry was so deep in thought that he didn't notice his assistant ate all the cupcakes. He was thinking about his trip and strange events. It was not an easy trip, but the parts of the trip were funny and interesting.
