On the platform, reading

Engrossed in her reading
she waited until the train stoped
doors opened
and at the "ding"
without taking eyes of her book
she jumped on
before it swooshed again...
The girl's a pro!

    Use this scene in your story. Is she a new character? Does one of your characters see her? What book is she reading so intently? Who else is watching her? Why is she waiting for the subway train? What happens when it stops?
