Adventure seekers (Friday Fictioneers)

They said the train was a myth and that once you board, you never return.

Hogwash.

We spent six months hiking the forest to find even the barest sighting of a track. Another year to find the station.

An ordinary, everyday, stinky, grimy station.

Magical my butt.

A ticket cost a dollar… Who the heck carries antiquated money anymore? Too darned heavy for one. I tried to tap my phone, but the conductor just stared. Still, we’re on.

I’ll send message when we return.

Jenny reread the ancient email now stored holographically and swiped a tear from her eye. Fools.

  1. Magical, Laurie

  2. Never judge a train station by its appearance! Very good 🙂

  3. Dear Laurie,

    It sounds like there’s some truth to the myth. Menacing.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    • Indeed. Sometimes the rumors are there for a reason. In this case… Well, who knows, one day perhaps they will return

  4. They never do listen, do they? Those Doubting Thomases get caught every time!

  5. Ah, a journey into the unknown. A bit like death it must be fantastic place because no one comes back. The odd zombie might, but that is why they are odd.

  6. They were determined to test the myth – trekking for a year and a half to find the station, and ignoring the strange behaviour of the conductor.I like how you’ve shown the time shifts in this, as well as the eeriness of the scene. Very good.

  7. Adventures in time travel, interesting story, Laurie.

  8. Abhijit Ray permalink

    Jenniey it appears is way ahead in time. Nice story.

  9. It was magical. I wonder where in the past they ended up. A great story and well written, Laurie. 🙂 — Suzanne

  10. Very magical.
