Midnight. A train rumbles through the darkness and its motion is shaking the passengers asleep. A young man with a bald, shaved head is staring out the window when an African girl enters the train. She puts her luggage in the rack above his head. She is very close to him. Except for him and the girl, everybody is asleep. He looks at her, but when she looks back, he turns his head away. A drop from a leaking perfume bottle hits his bald head and he smells the scent intensely. His heart is bouncing so loud he can almost hear it. When the girl gets off, he turns his head to look at her, revealing a tattoo of a swastika on the back of his neck.
