49. The End of a Dream.

Tired of sleeping on the floor, a young man in Teheran saved up for years to buy a real bed. For the first time in this life, he became the proud owner of a bed which had springs and a mattress. Because the weather was very hot, he carried the bed on to the roof of his house. He slept very well for the first two nights, but on the third night, a storm blew up. A gust of wind swept he bed off the roof and sent it crashing into the courtyard below. The young man did not wake up unit the bed had struck the ground. Although the bed was smashed to pieces, the man was miraculously unhurt. When he woke up, he was still on the mattress. Glancing at the bits of wood and metal that lay around him, the man sadly picked up the mattress and carried it into his house. After he had put it on the floor, he promptly went to sleep again.
Akhir dari mimpi. Lelah tidur di lantai, seorang pemuda di Teheran menabung selama bertahun-tahun untuk membeli tempat tidur yang nyata. Untuk pertama kalinya dalam hidup ini, ia menjadi pemilik bangga tempat tidur yang memiliki mata air dan kasur. Karena cuaca sangat panas, ia membawa tempat tidur ke atap rumahnya. Dia tidur sangat baik untuk dua malam pertama, tapi pada malam ketiga, badai meledak. Embusan angin menyapu dia tidur dari atap dan mengirimkannya menabrak halaman di bawah ini. Pemuda tidak bangun Unit tempat tidur telah melanda tanah. Meskipun tempat itu hancur berkeping-keping, orang itu secara ajaib selamat. Ketika ia terbangun, ia masih di kasur. Melirik potongan-potongan kayu dan logam yang berbaring di sekelilingnya, orang itu sedih mengangkat kasur dan membawanya ke rumahnya. Setelah ia meletakkannya di lantai, ia segera pergi tidur lagi.
