The Traveler

He sat hunched, huddled in himself in the cold dark night. The train was damp, dark and cold, so very cold. As the wind rushed swooping in through every open crevice everybody shivered.

He tried to read a book for some time but then the lights were turned off and he was forced to doze off but the sleep wouldn't come. How can you sleep when your body doesn't stop shivering.

He barely ate or drank anything he just wanted to reach his destination as soon as possible. He lay there in wait - Cold, hungry and thirsty. 

Finally the train reached his station but he was still away from his destination. He got off at the station and made his way out in the cold night of the month of December. He booked an auto and again sat while cold winds attacked him from all the places but he didn't complain he couldn't.

Finally he reached his destination. He paid up the auto and slowly made his way towards the gate. He went up the stairs and rang the bell. The door flew open and then there were smiles are around. He hugged and laughed after a long time. He was finally home.  

P.S. - Wish you a very Happy New Year. Hopefully in the new year I would be much more regular with my posts.
