An Agatha Christie character spotted a murder on a train. Ellen saw drab passengers.

She wanted inspiration for the novel she’d write. Nothing fed the muse here.

Ellen picked up her magazine and became engrossed in its first story about a commuter who was so far up herself she could come out the other way and still not realise she amused passengers.

The creation, Elle, travelled between Southampton and Portsmouth, as did Ellen.

Ellen looked up as an older woman coughed.

Mrs Drab held up her magazine. ‘My story is in here – the first one.’

Ellen screamed.

Ends.
