Gasping for Air

Postby hannah004 » Sat Sep 29, 2012 7:53 pm

Watching the airplane crash into the building, she wondered if she was witnessing another movie being filmed like a few months back, or if she was actually seeing something seriously unusual going on.....She had no idea this was actually the second airplane to hit the other tower. But she stood there patiently waiting for her train and watched in confusion as she waited to transfer to the other train to take her to work. The N train had not pulled into the station and she looked around to see if everyone else on the platform were seeing what she was seeing. What was she actually seeing? Hannah really wished she could determine what she was looking at. The more she looked at the vision of the two buildings and the dirty smoke, she could barely see what else was happening in the air. That crash or whatever it was, looked as a gigantic firecracker had been lit in the building and all she could do was stand there and watch. Her looking in that direction was a complete accident, she was just waiting for a train. It was such a beautiful beautiful day and all of a sudden something really really strange was happening!! The Asian lady next to her was silently sobbing and running her fingers through her hair as she looked at the sky. And the people were nuts, everyone was running to the payphones on the platform. She didn't understand what was happening, did she miss an announcement or something? What was happening at the payphones and why was the Asian woman sobbing? Hannah was considering asking the Asian woman if she was okay or needed help, but then Hannah began to hear her train getting closer. All of a suddent, she didn't want to get on the train....... because if she did, she wont know whats happening to the building that looked like it had the giant firecracker go off in it and the Asian woman screaming. The line was even longer NOW for the payphones. More people were walking back and forth while shouting on their cellphones.....but why? Hannah didn't want to go to work, she was all of a sudden filled with angst, confusion and alot of fear.
The N train pulled into the station and she reluctanctly got on, she watched the Asian woman screaming into the phone and crying even louder. The people on the lines for the payphone were pointing to the sky and talking to each other. Everyone was talking to each other like they all knew one another. What was happening? Hannah's train pulled into the station and she felt forced to get on and go to work. The doors closed on the N train and her ride to work began. Maybe at work she would forget what she saw this morning, maybe at work she would talk to Amy her coworker about the concert Amy went to and forget all about the craziness she just experienced on the train platform. Maybe.....
