Scent of an Angry Man


current time:

Mustafah was very angry at his nephew three weeks ago. Mustafah works hard raising civet cats for musk, and earns a decent income but he is not rich. His nephew studies at University, and got carried away one night drinking with his friends. As his nephew drove home, he dozed off and had a car accident, causing a lot of damage. It was more damage than his parents could pay for, and Mustafah had to bail his nephew out. Now he has trouble paying his own debts. He knows he can’t wish away his problems. This adds up to a very unhappy family and Mustafah has not talked to his brother or nephew for almost three weeks.
