Like an Agathie Christie novel in the underground…

That was ten days ago, an evening like others, on the way back home, stucked between a weating passenger and another one crying on the phone. A hand hanging the stain rod, anothing holding a captivating book. Yet my eyes were attracted by a character, or more exactly three characters just in front of me.

Henry, Margaret et Priscilla… Why these names ? We are going to understand…

Henry, tweed suit, brown overcoat, straped tie. Salt-and-pepper hair, circle horn-rimmed glasses. He just missed a pipe. He could have been the old professor, the writer or even the scientist, the one who handles the reason and the relational, the one that everybody suspects at the first place, the one whose eyes freeze you in one instant…

Margaret. She is sat next to him, rigid. A beige coat, a fox dollar. A barrette keeps her hair on the side. She wears a pearl nicklace and leather globes. Her eyes are severe, her lips thin.
She is the lady of the manor, the haughty and distant widow, the one who acts with cold blood…

Finally, Priscilla. Her black skin makes her dark eyes bigger. Her short hair are pulled in the back and only some locks are sticking up on her forehead. She wears a waisted raincoat, she is proud and looks at you right in the eyes. She an independent woman who is afraid of nothing. She is ready to do everything to get what she wants the most…

These three characters, between the stations Bercy and Daumesnil, the time of the trip between those two stations only, made me thought of a novel of Agatha Christie. Coming right from my imagination, and yet really real in the train, Henry, Margaret and Priscilla have transformed my two-minute trip in a Londonian instant… while we were in the Parisian subway !
The crime of the subway-express…
