I knew it was the last time I'd see him.In his brusque, clench-toothed replies, his furrowed brow, his down-turned chin, I could feel the finality of it all. The train was going to depart in an hour, so i had to help him dress, pack his worldly possessions, then lead him to the taxi-cab waiting outside.
"where to guv'nor?" the taxi driver asked us?
I sighed. "Take us to the East Ramsey Train Station."
I didn't want to let him go, but what choice did I have? His mind was made up. He wanted nothing more to do with me.
