.Carter Lemon was sure Catherine Lime was on the train ....in this compartment. Oh look ..Morris Dancers. His earpiece buzzed. '..Getting distracted , Lemon' He turned back into the train and there she wasn't but it could have been her. Lime raincoat. She raised her eyebrows slightly and got a watery grin from .Lemon. All he got back was a cold look . All the eyes in the carriage .seemed cold and hard. Made him miss the days of the Citrus ..Syndicate working together. Oh look, some ..Cows.. 'Lemon!' ..Were ...the Morris dancers inside or outside the train? You decide..

    My #1 favourite film. Graham Greene wrote it almost on a fag packet. A mere brief novella. But if you’ve a great idea, who needs more? Thanks for Googling... On reflection I had thought it might be too cryptic...
    A fascinating drabble for reading, rereading and then reading again!
