Train Story

Frank canít wait any longer. He stands up and squirms past the woman with the kid without making eye contact. Which way to the can? Oh yea, up there, past the old fart taking tickets. Frank shuffles up the aisle and shoulders past the conductor to the end of the car. Oh, thank God! Nobody in there.
He steps into the washroom. Itís tight and the train sways a little as it picks up speed. Frank reaches into the pocket of his leather jacket and pulls out a crumpled bag of white powder. He pours a tight pile onto the stainless countertop as he flexes his legs with the movement of the train. He pulls a painterís razor out of the bag and slides the plastic guard off the sharp edge and begins to chop at the pile of powder and pushes it into a thin line. He tucks the razor away and slips a straw from his side pocket and bends over the powder.
