Why I cry

This story takes place on 9-11-2001 8:00 a.m. it is told from my standing point. Yes it is tragedy, and I hope you enjoy this story.

Time-September 11th 2001 8:35 a.m.

Rena and I stood atop one of the towers of the World Trade center. She had brought me there as we were dating, and we were getting really serious.

Then I popped the question. "Rena." She looked over. "Yes? Will you marry me?" she looked at me for a moment, and then, she started to cry and said, "Yes of course I will!"

I looked at her and we were feeling as though we would be together forever.

Time-8:43 am

Suddenly, she heard something coming. She turned around, and her eyes just widened in fear. "Jump." She said. I said "what are you talking about? We are over 300 ft. off the ground!" she just grabbed my arm and jumped.

She hit a landing and heard a large Boom, or a smashing sound of that manner.

When we hit the ground she lost her grip on my arm, and we rolled away from each other.

I hit and looked around.

I saw a lot of dust, and dirt in the air.

I yelled "Rena? Rena!? Rena where are you?! Rena!"

I heard a voice say "here."

It was almost a whisper

I ran into the dust, and stopped dead in my tracks. There in front of me was Rena lying under a pile of rubble. The only thing visible was one of her arms and her head.

I ran over to her and said "no don't leave me" but she had already started to disappear.

She said "I will never leave you." At that moment she disappeared.

I shot up in my bed and yelled, "Rena don't leave me!" I heard a voice say "I never did."
