gasps You forgot to buy a ticket?? 😄 Seems you got a free ride then!

What a lovely, captivating story. I'm glad the lady fought for herself and escaped but it was due to the distraction you provided.

And then you were enjoying the view until you became their target. 😅 Lucky they did not get you. You did great with this week's prompt. 🙂

Thank you for giving the author such great feedback, @kemmyb

I got fully invested in the excitement of the story and the fast-paced tension! Great job, keep it up 😊

Thank you for engaging meaningfully with this author, @zedcell

This is a wonderfully crafted story. It has a flow of climax and anticlimax. The pace of the story builds and then relaxes, then builds again until that final delicious last line:

I had not bought tickets to the train

You keep a pace going that is almost comic, and yet at the same time a serious adventure. The image alone of the woman beating the thieves is hilarious. Then the fury of the thieves is turned on the narrator. Oh no, a frantic chase that barely ends in success. And then, as readers are about to exult in the narrator's victory, that wonderful, wry touch, he forgot to buy a train ticket.
