Hi there. You reading this makes my soul rest in peace in heaven.
My satisfaction is because human species continue in this universe. Yes, believe it or not, I woke up on a beautiful morning to find out I was the only human left on planet earth. It was 8 in the morning; my mom should have woken me up right at 6. But she hadn’t. Wondering why I just got out of bed and finished brushing. I came out of my room to realize no one was in the house.
All the doors and gates of the house were still locked and keys were right in the stand, where I myself had kept last night. I got tensed and I dialed into my mom’s number. I heard her phone ring in the room where she had slept last night, but she wasn’t there. Even my dad’s and grandma’s phones were right next to their own beds without them. I quickly unlocked the doors. I felt a great relief when my dog bounced into me as cheerfully as every day. I patted him and started searching for my parents.
There was no one in the street. I ran to my neighbor’s house and rang the bell. No one probably heard it as that door never opened. It took me another half an hour to realize I was the only human in the whole neighborhood. I called friends, relatives, police, fire stations, hospitals, No one’s picking. I became half-insane and started screaming, yelling and cursing on the roads. No one would reply except for the street dogs that got pissed off with me. All my efforts were futile. It was already 2 PM. I got hungry and ran to my house.
I ate whatever I could find in the fridge and also fed my dog who was my only companion. As I was eating a weird thought came into my mind. I was the owner of everything around me. I could do anything I like. I played games on my PC. I got bored within no time. I went into a house which till yesterday belonged to my friend and I broke his door. I started to play with his Play Station which I have always wanted to own. I don’t know what was happening, but my mind never seemed to enjoy it. All this time I kept my dog right next to me, I was afraid even he would leave me and vanish.
I hugged him tightly commemorating everyone. I felt immense love for all those betrayers who left me alone including the ones whom I hated bitterly. I somehow passed time till night which never seemed to pass.
We both ate our food. I tied him to the bed and slept with the hope that everything would be alright by morning. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen so. It seemed that all these people knew how to disappear only but not how to reappear. I just couldn’t afford to sit there and wait for nothing to happen. I took my mom’s scooter and made my dog squat on the vehicle between my legs. I missed my principal who had told me not to ride vehicles. I rode it screaming out for any other person who might still exist. I soon lost track of my house. The fuel got over and I stopped near some buildings. All this while the food was not at all a problem. By the grace of the almighty, my dog cooperated with everything. Even he seemed to understand the situation.
I found some papers and now I am writing this. I don’t have the slightest clue of where everyone vanished. Electricity got cut off before I woke up in the morning. I neither know how I am going to live nor how long I am going to live. It will become pitch dark by another hour. I hope there are still humans in other parts of the world and that the human species doesn’t become extinct. Do not hope for any twists in this ending part of my life, all this is not a dream. I need to arrange for some candles now. So, Goodbye……
