Train Tracks

( No Rating Yet )

“Hey, let’s walk on the tracks.” Yolanda headed down the hill.

She and Jimmy balanced on the rails. Yolanda jumped down and pressed her ear to the rail. “There’s a train. When it gets closer, we’ll lie down. Let it pass over.” 

“I don’t know.” 

“It’ll be a rush.” 

He liked the way she said rush.

“Come on.” 

“I didn’t tell my mom I was leaving.” 

“It’s coming! Hurry, lay down, Jimmy.” 

She held his hand. His heart was pounding. He could hear the train, and the rails were rattling.
