Twenty minutes. Still no train.
Brother walks into the station.

Begins a book he's read five times.

Finally a whoosh and a whir. 
Train pulls up. We step in.
He lets me go first to grab a seat. 

Express and we skip stops. 
He doesn't acknowledge me.
But lets me lean on his shoulder.

And I guess that's more than enough.

I guess he's older than you, Chris?

Sounds like a typical brother:)

My brother? Actually he's younger, he's only 21.
