The carriage was lit by small spots of pearly white as people used their mobiles to see but all they revealed were the stark rigid faces of fear. Billi tightened her hold on Vasilisa as the mass moved and buffeted against each other. The air thickened with terror. "I can't breathe!" "Get out!" "It's a bomb!" "It's terrorists!" "Open the doors!" A scuffle broke out at as people tried to barge their way through the interconnecting doors while those in the next carriage tried to do the same. The screams multiplied and someone clawed at Billi's leg as they were knocked down. Somewhere further in the compartment a baby started crying and in the eerie gloom Billi saw two men trying to wrestle the buggy away from the doors with the mother trying to fight them off. The howl silenced the entire train. Everyone paused as some primeval dread crept through their skins and froze them. No one breathed.
