Approaching Change

As the train approached the tunnel, the driver pulled on the horn. The abrasive sound was a grim reminder to Becky that her life was about to change. Irrefutably. Her parents’ death meant a change of family, of home, of language, of country. Her eyes scanned the flashing countryside through the window. She would not give in to tears. She would not! She would face the upcoming challenges with gritty determination and make her parents proud. The unknown faces waiting for her at the train station may claim to care for her well-being, but her trust needed to be earned.

  1. Hi, Colline. I came over to look for you again. I see that I read your story a few days ago. I remember the story and having liked it but did not have a “profile” in my memory bank. Now I know. I’ll see you again.
