"I'm not sure, actually." Pete admitted, "But when Zeke gets in a real bad mood, she's usually got this diamond ring on her finger, mainly just because he gets upset when she doesn't have it on."

Tom didn't like the sound of that. So they weren't a husband and wife apparently, so then what were they? Why did he care? "Huh...guess I have some stuff to learn then."

"You could ask her about it. Or maybe talk to Herbert. He's probably sleeping over in the far corner." Pete answered. "He would know for sure."

"She probably wouldn't tell me." Tom muttered thoughtfully. "I'll ask that guy over there." He got up slowly and went over to him, giving him a nudge with his shoe.

Herb jumped and shook his head, "What?" he was younger than most of the other guys, with short dark hair. "You're that new guy, right?"

"Yup, sure am. So you better be nice to me or something gross might end up in your food." Tom threatened, but he would never do that. He loved food too much. "Anyway, I was going to ask you about Alana. I want to know more about her."

"Oh, Laney? Yeah, she's supposedly engaged to Zeke. Probably because he bullied her into it or something like that." Herb said, "Why don't you just crawl over to her car and talk to her? I doubt the other woman in the car would mind."

"You don't think so?" Tom stood up, getting the guts to go over to the cart. "I'm not sure exactly how to get over. You said crawl, but where do I start?"

"There's a ladder on the side of this car. Climb up it and then walk along the ladder that's attached to the top of each train car." Herb instructed. "Just don't look down. Otherwise, you're screwed."

Thomas nodded a little and headed in the direction that Herb had pointed to. He ended up opening the door enough and looked out, spotting the ladder. He forced himself not to look down as he stepped out onto the metal floor and shuffled along until he reached it, grabbing on and climbing up.

Herb looked over at Pete and then shrugged, "I'll give you two bucks if he makes it."

"You're on." Pete replied, laughing quietly in amusement.

Tom froze a few times on his way across the trains. They bumped and rattled all over, making his entire body shake wildly. Eventually he reached the girl's cart and slid down the side, opening the door and flinging himself inside.

Several woman burst out into laughter when Tom came into the car, "Are you lost?" one woman asked. "Or did you just want the fine company of some real woman?"

Tom stood up after he landed on his knees, quickly. "I'm actually looking for someone. A girl with bruises, Alana."

"Laney is in her room." The woman motioned to the small corner of the train that was sectioned off by pink fabric. "She's sick though, so she might not want to see you. Venture at your own risk." As if to prove her point, loud coughing came from behind the curtains.

Tom walked across the train anyway and pulled back the curtain as he entered. "Alana?" He asked quietly, scanning her over to try to see what was wrong.

Alana was curled up under a thick quilt and when she heard Tom's voice, she lifted her head slightly. "Yeah?" she murmured, wiping her hands off on her pantlegs. "Can I help you?"

"Just stepping in to make sure that you got on the train without losing a leg." Tom told her, trying to be the tough guy around her.

Alana nodded and covered he mouth again, coughing violently. She wiped dried blood from the corners ofher mouth and sighed. "Thanks for your concern, but I'm fine."

"You're coughing...you need medicine." Tom met eyes with her, "Come on, you can trust me. Tell me what's going on."

"I'm fine." Alana said again, "Don't worry about me." she shook her head and then slowly tried to sit up.

"No, don't." Tom told her, pulling the sheets up over her instead. "Just lay down. It's not like you can go anywhere anyway."

Alana laid back down and then nodded, "I'm fine, Todd." she said again, "The train doctor comes out to see me on occasion."

"It's Tom, and I doubt he knows what's wrong with you." Tom told her, pulling up a chair to sit beside her. "So has your boyfriend come to see you yet?"

"Sorry, Tom." Alana said softly, rubbing at her face. "And the doctor does know what's wrong with me, everyone does."

"Everyone except me, so why don't you spill?" Tom watched her closely, lifting his eyebrow in question.
