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."
