Excerpt: Through a train window

Our heroine is on a train which has stopped at a station. She looks out of the window and suddenly sees the man of her dreams. He looks up at that moment too, and their eyes meet; the attraction is instant and powerful. And then her train moves off, and he's gone.

She knows this was no passing glance; it was the real thing. This is the man she will marry. But how can she find him again? She knows nothing about him: his name, where he lives, his job, his marital status - nothing. Perhaps he lived near the station he was at and will be relatively easy to track down. Or perhaps he'd only been visiting someone in that town and was on his way home - wherever that might be.

Her first task, she decides, is to get back to that station as quickly as possible. That means getting off at the next station and catching the next train back. Will he still be there? Probably not. Will anyone there remember him or know where he was going? Perhaps, but probably not.

She arrives back at the station where she saw him, but there's no sign of him and no one remembers him. So she checks the timetable to see which train he was most likely to have caught. Now she knows which direction he was headed in, but not where he was going. She waits for the next train in that direction and draws a sketch of what she remembers he looked like. She then plans to stop at every station along that route, show people her
sketch, and see if she can find him. It's going to be quite some adventure.

Will she ever find him again? Of course! Will he remember her? Maybe, maybe not. Will he be thrilled to see her? Maybe, maybe not.

On the other hand, perhaps he was just as smitten as she was, abandoned his own journey, and caught the next train after hers. Now he's in hot pursuit - albeit going in the wrong direction - and having an adventure of his own. It'll all work out in the end. Somehow.
