"Mind if I sit here?"
"Go ahead."
"Where are you headed?"
"Oh, I'm not sure yet. What about you?"
"Home."
"Where's home?"
"Why do you care?"
"Why shouldn't I?"
"Why aren't you sure?"
"I'm curious."
"About what?"
"About adventures. Where's home?"
"Next stop. How far is an adventure?"
"I'm not sure yet. Until I get bored. At least two weeks."
"You've been on trains for two weeks?"
"Yeah."
"Why?"
"I told you, I like adventures."
"But do you ever get off?"
"Of course. I like to look around."
"Don't you get lost?"
"That's the fun part. Are you looking forward to seeing home?"
"Yeah. It's right by the sea."
"We will now be stopping at Ibbotton."
"Sounds lovely."
"It is. You should come with me, perhaps you'd enjoy not getting lost if you had some company."
"If that's okay with you, I'd love to come."
"Of course it is! Right, time to get off. Get your bag."
"Got it. Thank you."
"That's all?"
"Of course. I wasn't sure how long the adventure would be so I didn't pack a lot."
"My car is this way."
