871 words - 3 pages

Compartment carAn empty compartment car seems to be the loneliest place of all. The continuous pounding and rattling, pulsing throughout the train which traps the unforgettable thoughts inside your head. Memories, regrets and doubts, circling round and round.As the sun slowly melts into the hills, from whence it came, my returning journey seems never ending. I look into my book and try to apply myself, but not one thing works. All I can think about is where I'm leaving and where I'm going. I left the small town of Beaumont twenty-one minutes ago.

I take a deep breath and continue. Step by step I make it along the desolated, green parks and I do not feel anxious or doubtful at all. I guess the town brought out the best in me. Each step I took, the more I felt at home but as soon as I got to my brothers doorstep I felt like I was at square one again. I took a deep breath of the sugar sweet air and knocked, three times."Hello? Can I help?" A tall blonde woman with tight ringlets at the end of hair answered inquisitively. "Look, if you're a saleswoman…" she obviously noticed my suitcase. "I'm not. I'm here to see John, John Major? Does he live here?" I feel my fist clench...
