The runaway train 失控的列車

Mark and Kathleen were standing on the platform of the subway station. They had won tickets for the opening day of the new subway system, but Mark refused to board the shiny new train. “Come on Mark. Just get on the train. What could possibly go wrong?” asked Kathleen. “Sorry, but I refuse to get on that train. It doesn’t look safe to me. I’m an elephant, not a guinea pig,” said Mark.

After 30 minutes, Kathleen eventually persuaded Mark to get on. He took his seat next the window and stared out. “It isn’t safe Kathleen. I would rather get in a helicopter or on a cable car than this,” he said. As the train left the station, everything seemed to be going well, and for the next twenty minutes, Mark enjoyed himself.

“Actually, this new subway system is pretty good,” he said. “It will be even better when it’s finished. The last part of the line won’t be ready until next year,” said Kathleen. But just as she finished talking, the train suddenly began to speed up. It got faster and faster, until sparks started to shoot out from the wheels.

Kathleen ran to the front of the train and banged on the driver’s door. “Open up! You have to stop the train!” she yelled. “I think something’s happened to the driver,” she said to Mark. He looked out the window and couldn’t believe his eyes. The train had reached the end of the tracks, and was about to run off the end of a bridge…
