The Queen's train looked like any other except for the rear coach, which was painted a glossy black and bore the Queen's coat of arms in gilt upon the doors, and the great-coated army of grave-faced coves patrolling the platform around it.

  3. I would imagine the inside was not quite like other trains, her highness probably liked to travel with some ammenities.

  13. My post - Deena Remiel - Trinity: A Brethern Novel

    Crap! She's never had her eyes open before, either. What the hell was going on?

    She sat next to her jerking body and waved a hand in front of her face. Hannah looked at and then past her, as though there really was someone else in the room - someone seated right next to her.

    Crap, crap, crap! As she turned to look beside her, she saw a hint of a shadow, but then figured it to be her own. Get a hold of yourself.

    "Honey, wake up. It's only a dream. You're okay, You're safe."

    Hannah looked back again at her, and foretold in a chilling tone, "I'll never be safe, Mama. Not anymore."

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong.
