Iroquois Mound ( FF on Jodha and Jalal)

Post by Edgar Suit on 2014-02-02, 18:46

Jalal felt lonely in the damp, old house, 786 Lavida Avenure, which was left to him by his father... It smells like camphor, chandan mixture all the time... He decided to go out for a walk ... This part of  western Pennsylvania is unknown to him. 

When he got his job at PPG place, he wasn't as excited as everyone else.... Especially his childhood friend Rukiya was very excited ... She had moved to this part fairly recently, working as clinical psychologist for a local hospital. Rukiya dreamt of reviving their old friendship   with Jalal... She always liked this handsome strappy man but never quite understood his melancholy nature... 

The Iroquois mound was close to where Jalal had moved in ... The local grocery clerk said that mound has some historic significance and that's why it was never bulldozed off when the   transport  authority wanted to take I-66 through it. Jalal didn't see anything of significance on the mound... It looked like a rather insignificant hill, only a pathway went along the side that gradually lead to the top of the hill... Even reaching the top wasn't so charming.. All he saw was some tall trees , curiously they were all lined , not really randomly growing, the kind you usually see in a wooded area.... He felt an odd chill run down his back.. Anyways, he was not in a mood to over think about this silly hill with the circuitous pathway.... Time to go back to 786 lavida ave... 

Once back home , Jalal wanted to take a long bath... He usually takes quick showers... But there was something about those claw footed old bath tubs that invite you to take a royal bath, the kind only emperors took with milk and abundant rose petals thrown about in the milk ... He chuckled at the thought of that picture .. One chuckle after many many months.... Sigh... 

He turned the hot water way too high.... These old houses are so drafty ... The bone chilling cold temperature doesn't help either.... After the bath, wrapped in a white towel he went over to the mirror ... He was  in a habit of drying and brushing his hair right after bath... He couldn't find the hair dryer in the cupboard... Something on the misty mirror caught his eye... He went closer and saw something written on the glass .... "Please take the hair dryer away from the bath tub - Jodha" ... He almost fell backwards.. Who is  jodha? He doesn't know any jodha...


*** hope you like my FF on Jodha and Jalal.
