There’s no denying it.

You shied at the gate.

Only a short walk from stairs to subway, and normally you’re a fucking reckless starter who’d give your kingdom for a challenge.

But tonight: the cold white tiled station looked emptier of life and fuller of fears than usual, and something whispered that you should think twice about being taken for a ride.

But then the kid trotted casually past, leapt the gate, and went to lean on one of the pillars that could have been concealing a dark horse or two but now clearly wasn’t.  

You realize where you’d been putting your cart, and stop horsing around: use the ticket, open the gate, scratch the fears.

It probably crosses your mind as you pass him that he’s an easier-looking target that you anyway, and you shouldn’t look a gift like that in the…

Pity he’s actually a horse of a different color who, for the last few minutes, has been simply champing at the… bit.

At least you get to know what he eats like.

And he’s off.

 

TENTH SIGN…
