A sweet, pungent overpowering smell wafted into the nostril. There was the king of fruits on the table, inviting a bite; never mind that it wasn't the musang king, D24, Ling Fong Chiao or even C-3PO or R2-D2, if you are a Star Wars fan and care to name the South East Asian fruit after the lovable astromech droids. The durian is a favourite fruit to many and don't you believe it if you've read somewhere that it has a terrible smell unlike that of rotten onions or raw sewage. It simply isn't true. Period.
