The Train Ride


I was getting the train home from my friends sleepover and I was running down the platform as the train was about to leave.

So I jumped onto the nearest carriage of the train. As I looked around, it was empty apart from three girls sitting on one side of a six-seater. As I didn't know when my stop was, I went and sat opposite them so I could ask them if I needed to.

I sat down and looked at the girls, they were all linking arms. The girl on one side of the girl in the middle was listening to music and the other was reading a magazine. But the girl in the middle was just staring at me. I started to get a bit freaked out when the ticket inspector got onto the train and came over to me and asked, "Excuse me miss, can I see your ticket?" I said " Yea sure" and I showed him my ticket.

He then said, "You need to come with me, your ticket is fake". I knew it wasn't fake as I had bought it two minutes ago from the ticket place at the station. I said, "What! You can even ask the lady with the black hair at the ticket place, I bought it like two minutes ago". He placed a hand on my arm and said, "If you don't come with me now, then I will call the police". Frightened, I got up slowly and followed him off the train.

I looked back at the girls and the one in the middle was still staring at the seat where I was sitting. The ticket guy took me into his office and sat me down. He took a deep breath and said, "Look, your ticket wasn't fake, the two girls not sitting in the middle are serial killers and the girl in the middle was dead, they strangled her before you got on the train!" - By Maddy
