Chapter One

--Just a small town girl

Livin’ in a lonely world

She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere--

I dragged my small suitcase behind me, a backpack on my shoulder, not caring where I was going. As long as I was as far away from home. I finally made it to the train station and bought a ticket, going anywhere. Once I boarded the train, I took a seat in an empty compartment, glad that I was alone.

Or not. A small voice told me.

I sighed and pulled out a book, waiting for the train to pull out of the station. It seemed like it took forever for the train to finally pull away. As I turned the page, the compartment door opened and there was a young man standing in the doorway. We both blinked at each other, surprised to see another person.

The young man smirked at me before saying, “Is the other seat taken?”

“No.” I put up my book in front of my face, ignoring him.

I heard him sit his suitcase in the compartment above the seat before plopping down in the seat across from me and I could feel his smile through the pages of my book.

“So,” He started to say. “What’s a young lady like you doing all alone?”

I looked over the brim of my book and narrowed my brown eyes at him. “That’s none of your business.”

“Maybe. Maybe not.” He quirked a perfectly constructed blonde eyebrow at me.

I rolled my eyes and went back to my book.

Pride and Prejudice, huh?”

“What?” I asked, shutting my book.

“You’re reading Pride and Prejudice, right?” He pointed to my shut book.

“What about it?” I gave him my stink eye that my mother always hates.

“I just didn’t see you as a Pride and Prejudice type of girl.” He said nonchalantly.

“What is that supposed to mean?” I said incredulously. This guy was really starting to tick me off.

He saw the tone in my voice and backed off. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to be rude.”

Rude? He thought he was rude?! More of like a perverted jerk, that’s what! “Just keep to yourself.” I scooted myself over to the window and stared out of it, watching the darkness.
