The woman in green and white striped leggings caught his attention the moment she stepped into the train compartment. She sat down opposite him, and he couldn't keep his eyes off her. Her leggings were unusual, and the way they hugged her curves made him feel a little lightheaded.
The train journey was long and uneventful, and he spent most of it stealing glances at the woman in green and white striped leggings. She seemed lost in thought, staring out of the window with a far-off look in her eyes.
As the train pulled into the station, the woman in green and white striped leggings stood up and walked towards the door. He watched her go, wondering if he would ever see her again.
He didn't have to wait long. The following day, he was walking to work when he saw her again. She was standing outside a coffee shop, sipping a latte and scrolling through her phone. He took a deep breath and walked over to her.
"Excuse me," he said. "I couldn't help but notice your leggings yesterday on the train. They're really unique."
The woman looked up at him, surprised. "Thank you," she said, smiling. "I got them online."
They struck up a conversation, and he found out her name was Lily. She was an artist, and she had just moved to the city to pursue her dreams. They exchanged numbers and made plans to meet up later that week.
Over the next few weeks, they grew closer, spending their evenings exploring the city together. Lily showed him all the hidden gems, the secret bars and underground clubs that only the locals knew about. He was hooked, and he couldn't get enough of her.
One night, they stumbled upon an old abandoned building. It was dark and foreboding, the kind of place that gave you chills just looking at it. But Lily was fearless, and she led him inside.
They explored the building, walking through dark corridors and climbing up rickety stairs. As they reached the top floor, they heard a noise. It sounded like footsteps, and they froze.
Suddenly, a group of men appeared out of nowhere, surrounding them. They were big and burly, and they looked dangerous. He reached for his phone, but one of the men snatched it out of his hand.
"What do you want?" he asked, trying to keep his voice steady.
The men didn't answer. Instead, they grabbed Lily and dragged her away. He tried to follow, but they pushed him back, and he fell to the ground.
He lay there, stunned, watching as Lily disappeared into the darkness. He knew he had to do something, but he didn't know what. He felt helpless, like he was in a nightmare.
He got up and started to run, his heart pounding in his chest. He didn't know where he was going, but he knew he had to find Lily. He ran through the streets, his mind racing.
As he turned a corner, he saw Lily being forced into a car. He recognized the men from the abandoned building, and he knew he had to act fast. He ran towards the car, his fists clenched.
He reached the car and pounded on the window. The men inside looked at him, surprised. He didn't care. He pulled open the door and grabbed Lily, pulling her out of the car.
They ran, their feet pounding on the pavement. They ran until they couldn't run anymore, until they collapsed on the ground, panting and exhausted.
He looked at Lily, her face pale and her eyes wide. "What was that all about?" he asked.
Lily took a deep breath. "I don't know," she said. "But I think we stumbled onto something we shouldn't have."
They sat there, catching their breath, wondering what to do next. They knew they had to be careful, that they were in danger. But they also knew that they had each other, and that they would face whatever came their way together.
