…Jack, in his tailored, but rumpled suit, stepped off the train
into the bright morning sun which warmed him as it beamed through the plated glass skylight; he started down the worn concrete landing
leading him to the main terminal. He walked under the heavy stone
transom separating the platform from the ornate grand gallery. He
paused a moment, looked up to the aged but beautiful glazed tiles
which had covered the grand chamber of the station since it was build
in the early part of the last century. Now he was here, he knew he was
closer to completing his task. He made his way toward the station
entrance and the taxi stand outside …he stood there on the street
corner slowly dragging on the half finished cigarette; suddenly he
noticed the oncoming car. A turquoise Thunderbird convertible, taking
the corner barely with two wheels, all 400 horses of its powerful
engine stampeding right for him; he stepped back just in time to see
his own reflection in her Ray Ban sun glasses, her silk scarf became a
windsock pointing the direction from where she had came ….Once again
he had cheated death, he told himself he would have her in his arms by
night fall…

…to be continued
