By pumpking_lord

Scifi / Horror

Introduction

Lawrence Fisher stepped onto the train. He had been waiting at the station for 14 minutes and 37 seconds, he liked to keep count of things like that. The train doors opened inwards as if to welcome him in, and he scanned his Oyster card into the machine. Strange, he thought, the scanner wasn't working. The train doors closed behind him and it lurched forward, nearly knocking him off-balance."I wonder what's wrong with the machine?"He quietly said aloud to himself, he'd have to ask someone. He looked around for the nearest person, but there was no one onboard. This was even stranger, seeing as it was mid-afternoon and the station had been, come to think of it, the station had been empty too, why hadn't he noticed that? He sat down on the nearest seat and pulled out his mobile phone, the battery was dead, this was not possible, thought Lawrence, as it had been fully charged only moments before. Lawrence looked around and noticed a strange, green flickering light coming from the door down the far end of the carriage. He hoisted himself out of his seat and slowly walked down towards it. He reached the door and opened it, what he saw made him scream. A cold metal hand grabbed his throat and his windpipe was crushed instantly, he was dead before he hit the floor.
