Just passing Ilford on my train today and my mad commuter buddy went for a random walk, or was it random? As he passed me the train rocked a little, not a great deal just the normal rocking of a train but it was the cover he needed. He leapt at me, a crashing blow to my ear as his elbow thundered into my head. I realised that this was no mere stumble, it was an attack using the motion of the train as a cover. Unconvinced that my rebuilt wrists would take the forces involved in a full assault I slipped my hand out from my pocket and powered my elbow into his midriff using it as a lever to throw his mass over me and into the lap of a surprised woman.
He couldn’t mount another attack in public now and as he recovered and apologised I studied him for signs of his alter ego, I was just considering clawing the latex from his face when I realised this was a mere agent Mr(s) Smith would not have been so readily defeated. My thwarted foe walked down another car and was gone. If you think that this was just a case of a commuter stumble then explain why, having walked to the end of the car, he returned? There was no reason for this trip and I suggest that it was a targeted attack, when you read the Anita beware Mr(s) Smith is getting more aggressive in her defence of Dr Evil.
Just to keep me on my toes having read a healthy chunk of the excellent Zoo by James Patterson* there is a huge dog on the train. It might just be me but I think he looking at me strangely.
