DICK NOT REALLY A BOOK, BUT A MAGAZINE OF 2051 Twin Towers Magazine is an imaginary periodical publication of the 2051. In this special edition of Twin Towers Magazine, you will be able to know what triggered the May 12th 2051 events (1 Ramadan 1473). It wasnt just an urban myth: Jean Luc Barran and Marco Dondi really kept a diary. We all know who Barran and Dondi are, but you dont know what really happened on May 12th 2051 (1 Ramadan 1473). We managed to obtain their notorious diaries, where they write about the events that took place in the 15 days preceding May, 12th. In order to allow a better understanding of the events, we decided to publish the two diaries in full, without leaving out or changing anything. Well leave it to you, now- once youve finished reading, nothing will be the same again. Michael Abendsen THE FINDING Only a couple of days ago we were suffocating under Cairos humid heat, our clothes soaked. I had returned to the hotel with my young interpreter, Milla Frink, and we were both trying to figure out why the meeting had been cancelled. We had given up hope: our contact had not turned up and we had to leave. Minister Harrison had urged all the American citizens to leave Egypt as soon as possible for security reasons, and that certainly didnt come as a surprise to us. Our plane was due to leave the following morning, and we were supposed to meet everyone in the hotel lobby at 7 am. We silently reached our rooms, crushed by disappointment. But a surprise was waiting for us: the very reason for our trip to Cairo was lying right on our table. After everything, our informer had found a way to deliver us the memories of Jean Luc Barran and Marco Dondi. We immediately started reading the diaries, well aware of the fact that we were facing certain death if somebody found out. When we finished, the sun was downing. At 7 am we went into the lobby. An old bus was waiting for us: it probably dated back to the twenties and was completely armored, with huge iron fences on each window. Two police vehicles escorted us to the airport and in half an hour we were there. The atmosphere was eerie, and there were more policemen than passengers. There were 147 passengers on our flight to New York: the last American citizens to leave Cairo. We all gathered in the waiting area, surrounded by a military cordon. We queued at passport and baggage control. It wasnt easy to remain calm: we knew that our life was at stake. Luckily, the control procedures were pretty fast: clearly the operators had received an order to board the passengers as soon as possible on the last flight. A few minutes later we were aboard, and the plane was about to depart. Then we took off. We did it. We had the diaries. Soon after landing, we immediately went to the newspapers headquarters and convened an Editorial Board meeting. Everyone knew about our mission, in Cairo, and as soon as they saw us they also knew that we had succeeded. All the participants received a copy of both diaries, none of which was allowed to leave the room. Over the next six hours, nobody said a word. They were the first ones to read the diaries and kept silent for six hours. Eventually, the Editorial Board unanimously approved the publication of a special edition, to be entirely focused on Jean Luc Barran and Marco Dondis diaries. ... Michael Abendsen
