The older man was unfazed. “If you are going to do something to me, do it,” he demanded.
The other passengers moved as far away as the train car would allow. The young man didn’t back down, continuing to eye the older man.
“I’ll wreck you, old man.”
“Let’s get off the train then. You can do anything you want to me.”
The young man let the doors close. “I’ve got somewhere to be.”
“That’s what I thought,” the old man said, resuming his seat on the train, ignoring the youth.
