Swept Away – Part 2

A few days later, Emma woke up. She found herself in the middle of nowhere with heavy rain pouring onto her. Her clothes were drenched, ripped and clung to her like a clip-on tie strangling her. Suddenly, there was a rustle in the bushes. She spun around to confront it. There, pressed up to her face, was a murky old tramp smelling of Chicken & Mushroom Pot Noodle (her favourite).

Emma sprung back in alarm and swung her fist at the man. All of a sudden, he grabbed her hand swiftly like he was expecting it. She looked at him in total shock. ‘How did he do that?’ she thought. She lowered her arm and imagined he might actually be able to help her. “Do you know where Locland Station is?” she questioned. “In fact, yes I do!” the tramp replied. “Follow me, child, and I will show you the way.” And with that, the two travellers embarked on an adventure they’ll never forget.
