An unexpected story

 

I was travelling in a train all alone for the first time. Though I had never taken this mode of travel, I heard stories about two passengers meeting for first time on journeys like these. I was pretty eager to know if I was one of them who made new friends. Soon after I finished thinking on this, a person boarded the train with a quite lot of luggage. He could be described as a tall and fat guy. After pushing his luggage to their places, he sat with a ‘stress-relieving’ look on his face. He introduced himself as an auditor in Bangalore. This raised doubts in me as to why he was on the tracks to Pune. I burst out with the question as I could resist it no more. He replied to me saying that he was going to his native place. As time went on, I dozed-off and woke up after a while to see that the coach was left in the middle of a deserted area and I ended up knowing that my coach was detached from the train and the co-passenger was missing. I got up to see if he was in the corridor. People screamed that there was a loose connection between the coaches which cautioned everybody to jump out. I hurried to the door and jumped out. Just then the person had come out from the bathroom and another train hit the coach and left it smashed.
