Mobeen had been getting flowers from the line of shopkeepers across the road for Mrs.
Nasreen who was his math professor's wife and his latest "soul mate" when the blast
happened. In slow motion Mobeen saw the Kiosk along with the nearby parked cars go up a
hundred feet in the air while at the same time he felt himself being picked up in the air and
thrown against the shop at his back. There was silence. Mobeen's brain in a state of shock
was confused as to why was there pin drop silence. He opened his eyes only to see the blue
sky so peaceful and tranquil, the white clouds floating across it like giant balls of cotton.
Mobeen felt as if he had never been more at peace than at that moment that is until his ears
returned to their normal functioning and he heard the piercing scream of Zarrish.
