There is now an even shorter version of the AMIR Pretend Big Brother (extra short text).
I have remade the book into 3 versions which will instead be 4 versions (1357 pages). This book is out now. The headings are the same in all four versions.
All my books, short and long texts, have the same price. It feels good and easiest that way.
The book 3 versions will be removed 2022-01-06, as it is no longer needed.
The idea is that the books about Amir will be eight, and so far books two, three and eight have been written and published. But now I get an idea to write book nine and ten.
Book nine may be about a nice reunion between Sten and Amir, an adventure. Although I will write this book later. And book ten, which I write here next, may end it all. Then I write the other books, 1,4,5,6,7 and 9 which are very much about finding Amir's best friend Sten, for whom it has gone to the forest, with his family.
In book ten, Amir's parents are murdered in an assassination, as they are on a short trip to visit their parents and siblings in their former homeland of Kurdistan (eastern Turkey). They have not been seen in eight years. Amir and his siblings become orphans, and Kim and Daniel get custody of them. Kim and Daniel who also entered into a partnership with each other (type of marriage).

TRY TO CALM DOWN
8 Dance and Moves
Amir and Ajda, balcony and living room
Amir feels a little upset about what he and Ajda have done. He realizes that this will be a problem. He does not really understand that he has dared to throw a water balloon at his bullies. But maybe it’s because he dislikes them so much. They are stupid, meand they love to quarrel. They detest immigrants and small grins.
He feels he needs to calm down before mom comes and they go to town.
He does as he usually does when he feels like this, hurried and in this ugly mood, as Sten and he used to do.
He enters again. Turns on the stereo in the living room, and the song Thriller with Michael Jackson. He loves that song, and he dances as Michael does in the video.
Michael is the best.
He especially likes Michael’s moves. He walks slowly forward, dragging one foot on the floor, shaking his shoulders, and waving his arms and hands in the air. And claps his hands together in time.
It’s hard to do exactly like Michael. But he still thinks he’s doing well.
Ajda has finished looking at the stupid boys, who have now also left.
"Now the crazy people have run away,” she says in an attempt to calm down.
“What good,” says Amir and does a pirouette. It’s almost like the ones Michael does.
“What you can do,” she says.
“Thanks! Do you also want to dance? I can show you. You just do this.”
He slaps his arms and hands in the air and drags his feet across the floor. Shakes his shoulders and swings his body. And he stomps his feet on the floor before dragging them. He also waves his hands with outstretched arms, while slowly spinning around. And he claps his hands.
These moves are very difficult, and they take time to learn.
Ajda tries to do as he does. And she’s doing well. They dance through the song.
And they sing along to the chorus:
“‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night.”
When the song is over, Ajda wants them to play it again. And she wants to dance more.
They do so.
Soon, mother and Ajna arrive carrying the bundle of folded laundry.
BLIND, YOUNG MAN
9 Errands on the Town
Daniel is 18 years old and blind. He has been driven by his mother into town, and is about to buy a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. A little while ago, he was at the post office took out money. And then he goes and buys an ice cream. He sits down on a park bench right next to a large fountain that sprays water in four directions. Between him and the fountain stretches a gravel path around the entire fountain.
Helena Park consists of lawns, gravel paths, park benches, and a lot of flower beds with beautiful and wonderfully fragrant flowers.
He loves the flowers, and can at a short distance, feel all the intoxicating scents. It smells like garden. His favorite scent, besides roses, is white lilacs. They have a pungent, intense odor that can make him feel intoxicated.
On several occasions, he has tried to go into a flower shop to smell the aromas, as he buys flowers. But there, the scents feel too intense at once. They compete in a wild battle over who can smell the most and best. It destroys as well as the pleasure. The scents of the flowers need to smell and do more on their own. In addition, it feels a bit awkward with all the moisture in there, which gives a certain tropical feeling.
But outdoors, it will be completely different and is more about distance to the flower to feel its scent. The closer you put the nose, the stronger and more noticeable.
In the park, there are also large deciduous trees that have huge treetops. And in one of its corners, towards Duke Johan’s square, stands Skövde’s pride, the mighty St. Helena Church with its tall and stately bell tower.
Earlier today, he accidentally over-turned a glass juice jug from the refrigerator when he was about to take out the milk carton. When he starts picking up the shards of glass, he cuts his hand. It’s easy to cut yourself when you can’t see. Or he’s just a little unlucky.
Mom helps him wrap his hand in a bandage. And on the other hand, as he also received a small cut, a larger patch is enough.
10 Blind Man’s Company
Amir and Daniel, park
Daniel enjoys his ice cream. Everything is so peaceful, except for a bumblebee that buzzes awkwardly around his head. He waves one hand that he has in the bandage, waves as much as he can, and until he can no longer hear the hum of the bumblebee.
“Hello!” says a small and happy boy’s voice. “It’s gone now. You can take it easy.”
Daniel lowers his hand with the ice cream and turns his face in the direction of the boy’s voice.
“Yes, it was nice to hear. Hey, who are you? My name is Daniel. Olsson in last name.”
The boy is studying look at Daniel, and then at his ice cream. It looks very good.
“My name is Amir – Hassan, and I am nine and a half years old. My mother and my two little siblings are over there at the bus stop. We will soon take the bus home to Ryd.”
“Yes, how nice. I’m going to go buy pants and a sweater. But what have you done in town?”
Amir licks his mouth and follows Daniel with his eyes as he eats his ice cream. And now he looks like a begging dog at the dining table. It’s also a little strange that Daniel does not seem to care that he looks at him like this.
“We have been to the bank, and then we have bought clothes.”
He laughs, a little amused. And continues:
“You should buy pants and a sweater, but I have already received a pair of blue jeans and a red tennis shirt.”
“Yes, how nice. But what do your mother and siblings do now?”
