Today, 13th April 2018, 13:12. He left. Here is the note he left.
Hassaan Tauseef knew this day was different. He woke up to the smell of pines, to the sound of sitar and taste of tea. Still hung over on the love from last night. Sitting on a mountain top, some twenty minutes outside Islamabad, he had that feeling again.
It was not the first time but it hoped it wouldn’t be the last. For when it last happened, the memory of that particular sunset haunted his mind. It was by the lake, on a rock, listening to those songs, with one of the only people he cared about.
That feeling? He felt the time stop. It was of infinity, not something worldly. But he knew in these moments that he could dissolve into molecules and he wouldn’t mind and well he did. He was happy.
