There's someone dead underneath you.

 

 

You ran for the train, hoping that if you did, you'd just be able to make your next bus in time. With the two bags, you don't go down to the lower seats, but sit in the small area that's level with the platform. It was only three stops anyway.

 

Stop one.

You hurry the people getting on in your mind. You know you’re cutting it tight, but if you sprint off the train and up the stairs then you should make it.

 

Stop two.

Glancing at your watch again and again, you rehearse your every step. You get ready now, rising from the seat, backpack on firm, other bag held tightly in preparation.

 

Stop…

The train had stopped, your carriage only just reaching into the platform. All the other carriages would still be plunged into the darkness of the tunnel. You’re itching to get off the train, but your chances were growing dim.  

Someone from the platform peered down and then looked straight up at you. A hand sliced across their throat.

 

There's someone dead underneath you.

The bus leaves with an empty seat.
