The Young Lady in The Train, The Young Man on The Platform

The heavy feelings from earlier are still intact as they stand. The young lady in the train, the young man on the platform. The young man awaits with puzzled look as the girl turns to him. The door is about close.

“Aren’t you going to get a girlfriend like him?” she asks.

He is taken aback from the question. There’s a short silence as the man is thinking into her eyes in solemn stare. “I don’t fall in love that easily,” he says, smiling in a way as if he’s laughing at none other but himself.

She nods to his answer and the door is closed. They both stare at each other until the train starts to move, separating them again one life away.


I’m quoting this because it’s taken from my current work. I personally love this scene so I tried to translate it into English. Sounds meh, but why not?
