Going Home

Prompt: Two ways of getting home

“So,” Joram said, as soon as the last of them had filed into the antechamber. “We’re off for the holiday?”

“Two weeks of free time,” Barnabas agreed. He looked at Eishi and frowned. “This is your home region.”

“It is,” he agreed. “I have a house just twenty minutes walk from here.” His brows furrowed and he said, “You all have longer treks, in order to go home, though. Is that right?”

“I’m taking the train,” Joram said, nodding. He looked at Amera and said, “You’re going with us, right?”

She nodded. Turning to Henry, she tilted her head to one side. “How are you getting home for the holiday, Henry?” she asked, frowning.

“I haven’t decided yet,” he admitted. His brows furrowed and he said, “I can’t drive, so that leaves taking the train or a boat.”

“I don’t trust the train,” Barnabas said, shaking his head firmly. He looked horrified for a moment and added, “The stories you hear about what can happen… I’m driving home.”

Henry frowned and shook his head. “I’ll decide tomorrow,” he said.
