Happy December 1st!
Let the Christmas cheer begin! (I will personally be watching The Holiday tonight)
This is going to be a new and interesting concept on my site… so bear with me. This Christmas I have decided to do a post a day, but not the traditional Blogmas. Instead, I have decided to post a part of a story every day, ending it on Christmas day. I LOVE Christmas and writing so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to combine them both into an uber cheesy and Hallmark-esque story. I hope it brings a few smiles to your faces and you enjoy Day 1!
Trains had never been Amelia’s favorite mode of transportation. However, this year it would be the cheapest and most efficient way to get to her hometown of Greenwood. In fact, the only thing that was going to get her through the train ride was the knowledge that at Greenwood snow was already littering the ground, frost was licking the trees, and a mug of hot chocolate was waiting for her at the kitchen counter. She couldn’t wait. But for now, she would have to tackle the train. Amelia wasn’t sure why she was not a fan. Airplanes never bothered her, as a matter of fact, any other mode of transport didn’t bother her— just trains. Perhaps it was that she always thought that they would be grimy and boring. At least on a plane, there is the excitement of flying through the sky. To her, the train was just a glorified and costly metro. But that didn’t explain her disdain for them. Maybe it was the many TV shows and movies that she had watched. They had led her to believe that at any moment a villain was going to destroy the train tracks. The train would then not be able to stop in time before launching off the broken tracks. And only someone of superhuman strength would be able to stop it. Or perhaps it was just that this was her first time taking a mode of transport that wasn’t a metro or car alone somewhere… Amelia thought as she entered the train station. She had arrived two hours early- not knowing if she should get there as early as she does for planes or metros so she just guessed and thought the earlier the better. She was prepared for the train ride, well at least she thought she was…
I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Stayed tuned tomorrow to see what happens next!
