Friday Fictioneers: Last Trip to North Pole

“Are you sure this train will take us to the North Pole?” Reggie shouted with his head stuck out the window. He loved listening to the chug-chug-chug sound the train makes. It reminded him of his childhood when he played with his grandfather’s elaborate train-set. This will be Reggie’s last trip to the North Pole where he intends to stay until his natural death.

“This is your what? 60th trip?” His companion, Frederick, rolled his eyes.

Reggie sat back down on the plush leather seat as the train entered the tunnel and sighed, “I’m sure going to miss this place.”
