Flash Fiction: Train Dispatch from Everywhen

You don't expect someone charging at you from the top when you're on an escalator going up. If anything, you watch your back to see if anyone needs to pass you. On that day I was watching neither. As I'm wont to do, I was looking at my feet, willing the escalator to take forever and bring me somewhere new. I didn't care. I forget the details now, but someone jumped at me. We tumbled down. Thus begins the story of how I got stuck in a train.
