Rainwater dripped onto the note from Haroun's hair. 'What to do, son', Rashid pleaded piteously. Storytelling is the only work I know. 

When he heard his father sounding so pathetic, Haroun lost his temper and shouted. What's the point of it? What's the use of stories that aren't even true?

Rashid hid his face in his hands and wept. Haroun wanted to get those works back, to pull them out of his father's ears and shore them back into his own mouth; but of course, he couldn't do that. And that was why he blamed himself when, soon afterward in the most embarrassing circumstances imaginable, an unthinkable thing happened:
