Gemma grabbed her school bags as the train pulled in, placing a book she'd been reading back into her coat pocket. She took her favourite seat in the carriage, which was, as usual, virtually empty apart from the regular passengers that used the train. However, before it pulled out of the station, a man of around forty came into the carriage and looked round before settling down in the seat opposite her. He nodded a greeting before pulling out a newspaper and starting to read.
She'd watched him as he'd entered. He must have been around six-feet in height, with short wavy black hair and dressed immaculately in a pinstripe suit. Not the type of person usually on the early train; more likely to catch the later one, which carried office workers. At that moment the train set off. After looking out of the window for a short time Gemma removed the book from her pocket and resumed reading.
