Waiting for the Train

This morning I waited for the train. An hour went by. Then two.

I got angry and started walking along the tracks.

Not long after, the train came by and slowed down to my pace. I was too upset at the train to acknowledge its presence.

The train apologized, saying its alarm busted and didn’t go off. The train said if I hopped on, I could ride for free. It’s hard to stay angry at anyone, so I got on.

As we rode down the tracks, I offered to buy the train a new alarm clock. The train started to cry.

I tried comforting the train by stroking the back of my seat. The train began to sob and almost went off the tracks!
