-Oh my god! Where did you find that box?! -Clary was now wide awake, staring incredulous at the box and at what it contained. Now that her eyes had adjusted to the light, the sharpness of the knife was more obvious. It was as pointed as a thin needle.
-Actually, it was very well hidden. I don't think anyone could have found it.
-Where was it?
-Come with me, i'll show you. -Sam gently grabbed Clary's hand and pulled her towards the door of the lobby. Not the door they had both used to enter the room but the one opposite to it. One Clary hadn't used yet.
-I haven't been in this part of the train.
-It takes you to the driver's cabin. -There was just a short corridor with no doors at its sides, just the one at the end. The emergency lights were turned on, so it wasn't difficult to grab the door's handle and turn it.
Clary was tense, she was scared someone would find them there, but Sam knew no one would.
At the other side of the door, there was a very big, empty room. The noise of the train was deafening though, as if millions of people were crumbled in there shouting at each other. Clary and Sam instantly covered their ears.
-THE OTHER DAY I LOST MY JACKET AND THEY TOLD ME TO GO TO LOST PROPERTY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRAIN, SO I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE IN HERE -Sam was shouting, trying to overpower the annoying noise.
-WHAT? -Sam realized Clary wouldn't hear anything he said, so instead he lead the way to a corner of the room. There, he apparently started tapping the wall until he found something. He started to slide that something to one side as if he expected the wall to open somehow. Clary thought Sam looked silly. Silly but cute. Suddenly Sam stopped pushing and looked at Clary satisfied. She was confused. Then, he pointed at a place a few meters away in that same wall. The wall had disappeared and a little room was in its place. They both walked towards it and when they were inside, Sam pressed a button which made the walls reappear, enclosing them and setting them apart from the noise which was starting to harm their ears. Silence comforted them. The place was nice and cosy.
A hiding place for lovers -Clary thought
