Chapter II

Maiya had finally got her sandwich and was now munching it happily. Harry was now travelling in our cabin because he was bored of travelling on his own.

"This is Maiya" I told him as he opened his laptop.

"Nice to meet you Maiya" he smiled. Maiya grinned. 

"Is this your boyfriend then?" she asked cheekily.

"Maiya!" I exclaimed, blushing a little. Harry just laughed.

"Well hi Harry. Nice to meet you too"

"Ha! How do you know my name?" Harry laughed.

"I heard you talking to Abbie" she informed him matter-of-factly. "Can I have my DS please Abbie?"

"Yeah, here you go" I answered, passing the Nintendo DS to her. She was absorbed in 'Professor Layton and Pandora's Box' almost immediately. Harry went back to his work so I got out my iPod. After a while of watching the scenery fly past, I looked at Maiya. She was still absorbed in her game.

"We're going a bit fast, don't you think?" Harry commented, making me jump.

"Yeah" I agreed "But maybe we're meant to be going this fast" I pointed out. He agreed and we watched the trees whizz past for another ten minutes. Then I noticed a corner coming up. A corner that we'd fly off if we didn't slow down now! Harry noticed it too and we dashed to the drivers carriage.

"Where is he?" Harry wondered nervously.

"I don't know. But we need to stop this train now! Do you know how?" I said desperately.

"Yes. It's that lever there." Harry answered immediately. I gave it a tug, i couldn't move it. I gave it a harder tug but it didn't move an inch.

"It's stuck!" I exclaimed. We were about to hit the corner! "Help!" Harry came over and we both tugged with all our strength. The lever moved and the train stopped. But it stopped too suddenly and I went flying into the dashboard.

The End
