The Appointment in Samarra | Story

Hey guys!!! It’s storytime! 😀 Today’s story is: The Appointment in Samarra. Death is the one who speaks on the story.

“Now listen closely…”

There was a merchant in Bagdad who sent his servant to market to buy provisions, and in a little while the servant came back, whige and trembling, and said:

“Master, just now when I was in the marketplace I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture, now, lend me your horse, and I will ride away from this city and avoid my fate. I will go to Samarra and there Death will not find me.”  

“Avoid his fate and go…”

The merchant lent him his horse, and the servant mounted it, and he dug his spurs in its flanks and as fast as the horse could gallop he went. Then the merchant went down to the marketplace and he saw me standing in the crowd and he came to me and said:
“Why did you make a threating getsture to my servant when you saw him this morning?” 

“That was not a threatening gesture” I said, “it was only a start of surprise. I was astonished to see him in Bagdad, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra.”



Alll right I admit it. This is another sherlockian post. But hey, I loved the way it is related to The Six Thatchers. And non-Sherlockian readers can agree that this is a interesting story. It tells us that whatever we do, we can’t avoid death.


Anyway, how was your day guys? ☺

The sky is the start line.
