Not quite ghost story

The train had slowed down to a very pleasant roll as we were nearing Shalimar Station. It was raining heavily now and all the other passenger in my coach had left at the previous station Santragachi, leaving me all alone in the entire a/c coach. As we passed by Padmapukur Station, ghostly, empty, as the rains came crashed all around,  there it was - the solitary crow on the bench ... now just a blur through the rain specked window. A perfect setting for a ghost story ... where we'd be travelling for ever, the train and me and everytime I'd look out ... the crow would still be there.

PS - That didn't happen. Thank god!
