It was the happiest day of his life. He was not happy but
going mad with the happiness. Finally his work is recognized
and admired in the world of art. Today he received the
invitation letter from the famous art gallery of Paris to
exhibit his paintings. He struggled very long and very hard
and it was his first step towards the fame and success.
That day he celebrated his achievement with his friends. They
laughed, sang some melodious songs in very horrible ways,
danced and drank till they dropped. However he was not
supposed to drink alcohol that much as he was diabetic since
he was 7 years old. But he was young and thought he can break
the rules sometimes. It was the early morning of July
3rd, 2009 when he decided to go for a walk on the
sea beach. He was very much drunk but beach was not very far
from his home. After crossing five red signal lights he
reached the destination. He was not at all bothered about
the possible tickets he may get. All he wanted to feel the
fresh, cold and salty breeze. While walking on the beach in
the darkness he could see some light blue light on horizon.
A new day was about to begin. He began to smile and then he
started laughing. He was trying really hard to stop himself
from laughing but somehow he could not stop. Sea waves were
roaring and crashing on shore as if they were giving him
company in the mad act of laughing. Finally he managed to
stop his madness. May be it happens when your dream starts
turning into reality, he thought.
The dark blue sky started turning into the light blue, purple
and red. "Good Morning to me", he shouted and again started
laughing. He said, "Oh no, not again, dear God it is not me,
a bottle of whiskey is responsible for this madness. I am
very grateful to you; do not think that I forgot about you."
And then he headed back towards his car.
He wanted to go back home and sink in his bed as soon as
possible, so again he missed three red light signals, but
reached home safely and went straight to his bedroom. "I hope
this is not a dream and if it is then I do not want to wake
up.", he thought.
When he was thinking that he did not know that it would be
his last wish. July 3rd, 2009, he died in his bed
while sleeping. His name was William George Jr.
