Introduction

´╗┐Train Station Clunking and Screeching, the frozen engine kicked into motion, pushing the sleek, modern train down the beaten, old track and into the black. Even after the train had left, the sound of the pulsing locomotives pounded through the night, until the deep booms of its powerful thrusts quietened down to gentle beats in the heart of the night. Mist swirled gently across the now empty track, covering in the wispy blanket. The track was now hidden beneath a mysterious layer, like a deep secret or a myth.

Middle

Oh how the mist rose, reaching up into the sky and putting out the stars. After the mist was done, only the silver glow of the moon feebly peered through the mess. Nothing could be seen, nothing could be heard. There was nothing, nothing at all. The mist had done its job; it had hidden this place from sight. But the mist did not know. No, it didnât know that there was another. There was something moving in the dark, there was someone moving in the dark.

Conclusion

The train had arrived, and had cleared the way. The mist fled in its presence, spiralling away from its gleaming structure, away from the station, away from the figure and off into the night. Now that the air was clear, time started to flow again, the figure rose and strutted towards the train, into the light and disappeared inside. Clunking and Screeching, the frozen engine kicked into motion, pushing the sleek, modern train down the beaten, old track and into the black. Even after the train had left, the sound of the pulsing locomotives pounded through the night, until the deep booms of its powerful thrusts quietened down to gentle beats in the heart of the night.
