The Train


“Do you think you can meet me at the town square,” Albert asked quietly.

Juliet replied, “I will have the driver ready to take me to town as soon as he leaves. He is my friend and sometimes my confidant.”

“We will just run away, darling! It doesn’t matter if we’re married,” Albert said.

“Can we go far away? I’m afraid he’ll find me?”

Albert said, “Yes. I will keep you safe.”

Juliet and Albert met in town to leave her abusive husband. When they tried to catch the train, there he stood. Albert knocked him down with one blow.

    Yeah for Albert. Nice story.


  10. Well told. I wonder if they eventually learn that running away never really sets you free. Or maybe Albert has settled the matter with one blow?


  11. Well played, Albert – I hope they are happy.
