Chapter One

Amos Matthews fell asleep by mistake on the train and dreamt he was being killed by a construct.

In truth, that train car that day was the perfect place to rest. Amos had spent four hard days winding constructs on a farm up north. Warmth from the late day sun seeped into the steam train at a cozy angle. It stroked Amos's stubbly face and dusty brown hair but didn't wake him. Even his stiff wool traveling suit held him instead of chafing. The usually pinching wooden seat hugged his limbs gently. Even the conductor on this run, not known for compassion, resolved not to wake the weary man. It was the least he could do since Amos was the only passenger in the car.
