The note was written and everything was perfectly planned. He’d put on the music and work on the finishing touches, before the final stroke. The world would wake up to his dismal story the next morning. He’d be gone by then.
“Oh, for some fresh air”— he thought and flung open the window.
Suddenly, a mynah flew in, fluttering in desperation. As he chased it, it bumped into his easel, spilling paint, scattering his best works on the floor, before limping and flying away.
“Was it trying to say something?” he wondered. He couldn’t be sure of his plans anymore.
