stevie wondered

whether she'd be on it. paranoia hit him. waves of fear shuddered through his body. the stakes were high, the highest ever. he couldn't see her, couldn't even picture her in his mind's eye. then she was almost upon him, different from how he thought of her, more real, even more beautiful. it was the smile, the look of emotion reciprocated. he ran the short distance to her and held her in his arms. they kissed for a long time. when they stopped, the platform was deserted and the train was well on its way to Dundee.
