The Journey to Boston

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Chap 1: The Journey It was nearly one o clock by my watch and the hunger had begun to cause bombardments in my stomach. I was sitting beside the window enjoying the moving scenery. Now why I say moving scenery because it was actually moving as I was sitting in a train compartment! That was my first long journey by train. And one can imagine my state as it was the first journey in which I was alone. ?Make yourself comfortable? a woman passenger seeing my nervousness said. ?Yes I am ok? I dumbly replied. ?So I suppose it?s your first journey alone? ?Yes? I murmured. ?Are you travelling to Boston?? ?Yes I guess it is the last stoppage.? ?So it?s your hometown.?

I have seen women chatting but this one is a male chatterbox.? As I thought this the confidence in his voice made it clear that he was talking to one of his family members. ?Ya I am just reaching dear. Boston is just half an hour away. Hahaha.? This line made me attentive. ?Half an hour?.I mean thirty minutes or should I say eighteen hundred seconds? every word that I thought made me comfortable. I started thinking about Boston its scenery, its weather, its people and everything. ?Oh god I would see my Grandpa after five long years.? This feeling was so special. I quickly gathered my luggage together and put my teddy back in my suitcase. I combed my hair to look civilized I sat properly in a dignified manner and waited for Boston to come. ...read more.
