Rewrite Sinclair - Train Girl

Rewrite Sinclair - Train Girl

That girl has cuts on her hands.

One over her big knuckle, and another on the side below her pinky.  The angles are strange. Too fine to be a knife, too long for paper.

Too fresh.

I can't stop staring, and she catches me.

I glance at her eyes, and for a moment she winces.

And turns away.

I stare at her until she gets off the train.
