For All Time -Lauren Alwine 03-20-0-03 Rosemary Morgan woke up extra early on the beautiful morning of September 11th, 2001. It was her fiancée, Xander's birthday and she wanted to surprise him. She placed a card beside him on his pillow with a poem she had written inside. She made his favorite breakfast and put a brand new watch beside his coffee. She wore the dress Xander had bought her and always loved on her. It was a short black dress that accented her slim figure. She was somewhat short with brownish-red hair and green eyes. Xander came downstairs just a few moments later. He was a tall and muscular and his head was shaved. He had the most beautiful brown eyes that always drove Rosemary crazy. He picked her up and spun her around the room. “Good morning baby,” she said sweetly, “Happy birthday!” “Thank you sweetie. That was a beautiful card,” he replied. He kissed her and put her down. Then, he walked to the table and saw the watch Rosemary had given him for his birthday. She smiled when she saw his delighted expression. “Oh my God, baby, a watch? You are so good to me!” He kissed her again and thanked her. “No,” she replied, “Thank you, because you're so good to me!” They ate their breakfast together and talked about their plans for the evening. They were going out to a small club nearby in Manhattan called Dimensions with a few of their friends. Including Xander's best friend, David, who he worked with, along with his wife, and also Rosemary's best friend, Lizzy. Soon, it was seven o'clock, and time for Xander to leave for work. He worked as an accountant on the 42nd floor of the south World Trade Center Tower. “Good luck today, baby,” Rose told Xander as she kissed him goodbye. “Thanks gorgeous, you too.” “Happy birthday X!” She called as he was walking to his car. He paused for a moment, and although he wasn't quite sure why, he walked back to his fiancée. “Thank you,” he said, “And I want you to know that I love you with all my heart.” Rosemary smiled at him; “I love you too X, always.” He kissed her one last time got into his car, and drove off to work. Rosemary stood in the doorway smiling to herself. Normally, she would be leaving for work in half an hour, but not today. The card and watch weren't even half of Xander's birthday present. She had also bought him a car. A Lexus SC430, what he always wanted. And she was going to the dealership to pick it up today. When Xander got off work at three o'clock, she would surprise him by picking him up in his new Lexus. And there, waiting for him in his seat would be a brochure for a cruise to Hawaii, where she would take him for a vacation. About an hour later, she decided it was time to leave to pick up Xander's new car. When she arrived at the dealership, the man who had first shown her the Lexus greeted her. He was a tall young man with brown hair, and was always nice to Rosemary. “Hello Miss. Morgan. Here to buy that Lexus for your fiancée?” He asked as she got out of her car. “Yes I am, and how are you, Eric?” “I'm doing fine, thank you, Miss. Morgan.” “Oh lighten up Eric, call me Rosemary.” “You sure?” Rose stopped and looked at him smiling, “Come on Eric, it's not like we're strangers. Now, show me the goods.” “Right.” Eric led Rose to the beautiful silver Lexus he was holding for her. “God, that thing's gorgeous!” She said looking at it. “It sure is. Nicest car we got.” “Now that I believe.” She replied. “Well,” Eric said, “Here are your keys, Rose. And, you're leaving your car here for your friend to pick up right?” “Yep,” Rose replied, “Lizzy will be by to pick it up later. Will you hold the keys for me?” “Of course, I will. And I'm sure your husband will love your gift.” “He's not my husband, he's-” “You wait,” Eric said smiling, “you just wait.” “You think?” Rosemary asked excitedly. “I know.” Eric replied. “I hope so! Well, I better get this car home. I'll talk to you later Eric!” “Bye Rose! Have a nice day and have fun with your new Lexus!” “Thanks! Bye” It was a little after nine o'clock and Rosemary had just pulled up to the house when her cell phone rang. She searched franticly through her purse until she found it. “Hello?” she said sweetly. “Rose! Rose! It's David,” the panic in his voice sent an icy chill up her spine, “Listen to me, the towers have just been hit by two planes. X and I made it down to the bottom floor, but he's hurt Rose. He's hurt bad. Rose, I don't know how long he's going to live.” Rosemary couldn't speak. She Click here to read the rest of this story (86 more lines)
