It Won't Work Ch. # 10 Excerpt: Eyewitness to 911

This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and 
incidents either are the  product of the author’s imagination
 or are used fictitiously, and any resemblance
 to actual persons, living or dead, events, or locales is 
entirely coincidental.

Once in school, he moved his time card to the in-box and proceeded to his first class 7:52; forty-two minutes later, to the teachers’ cafeteria he would go for another cup of coffee and a buttered roll until 9:21 am; period three. He cleaned the chalk board and headed over.
8:51 am, he was standing at the counter about to pay Carol when he overheard the radio that stayed on all day, WINS 1010 news station:
“A plane has just crashed into the World Trade Center,” the reporter said. Carol and Emerson gave an ear.
“What happened?” asked Emerson as he poured milk into his coffee cup.
“An airplane flew into the Trade Center,” she replied nonchalantly, taking his change and ringing him up.
“A big plane?”
“They say a private plane.”
“Hope no one inside got hurt.”
