A harsh metallic voice echoed through the loudspeaker system.
‘Please have your tickets ready for inspection.’
The train pulled away.
The passengers looked pale and sallow; their eyes vacant and staring.
Fear emanated from every pore.
The fear intensified as a black mist drifted from seat to seat.
Travellers turned to each other for comfort.
Hideous faces peered through the windows.
A woman screamed.
A man fell.
Mr Metal spoke again.
‘Tunnel ahead!’
‘Welcome to hell!’
The carriage violently shook.
Red lights flashed.
Total black became brilliant white as the train abruptly stopped.
‘Please exit the ride to the right!’
