Tantilizing Tuesday Teasers - 09/11/2012

Hey what's up? It's been a long time since I have been on here. I want to come out with something where I'm finally at peace. Now while others are going to post pics of the old World Trade Center, I'm moving on to show hope in the future. As a matter of fact, this snippet takes place five years from now - 2017.

I hope you enjoy.

It's been twenty years since Sara's been back to New York. The last time she rode the Staten Island Ferry, she remembered two twin towers standing in the background from Liberty Island as if it was conjoined into one mass of land. But on a beautiful bright September night, she took montage of a bright shining beacon over the city.

She also remembered when Byron was holding hands with her in 1997, promising one day to take her to the Windows of the World from the top of One World Trade Center. Sadly, that restaurant no longer existed and she hadn't heard from Byron since she moved out to Palo Alto, California. A particular pain remained in her heart; she was given the choice to either stay with Byron and maybe get married or make a career move of her lifetime in the Bay Area.

She wondered if he was still in the city. The memories of riding the Staten Island with Byron suddenly brought back the nostalgia. Maybe it wasn't a good idea for her to come back to NYC, but she really missed him much. But in a city of now 8.5 million people, what are her odds of bumping into him again?
