I took the train to London. Would she still be there? I changed to the semi-fast train at Ascot. Slam door!

She was very old now, but younger than me. I used to have my hands on her sister at Brooklands. In her prime she had been very expensive, she probably still is. At Waterloo I took the tube to Embankment and then the Circle Line to South Ken.

She was there of course, waiting for me in the middle of the room. She was very upright, as usual, she wore grey, as usual. She knew that I was coming.
