part two : Beside the Railway Line
Answers 1Add Yours
Death sees "two guards", a woman, her daughter, and a "corpse" .
The two guards are arguing. One wants to leave the mother, the daughter, and the body there in the snow by the railroad tracks.
The other wants to continue on with them to the next stop. He wins.
About half an hour later, Death leaves the train, carrying the dead boy's soul.
