The train pulled out of the station, leaving Amanda standing forlornly on the platform. Regretfully, she thought of Max and the last words they had exchanged. Hateful words that would be difficult to take back. Now she was here alone, exploring the places they had planned to see together. Sighing, she hefted her backpack onto her shoulder and began the walk to the castle ruins.
Amanda gazed at the ruins in wonder. They were just as she imagined.
“Fancy seeing you here!”
Tears slowly fell down her cheek as she saw Max walking towards her with a smile of forgiveness.
