Belle is standing on a packed commuter train that left the North Brunswick terminal at 6:45 and doesn’t realize that it will reach the city eight hours later. She’s next to a schoolgirl, clad in argyle and and grey, with an embossed, fine stitched golden emblem over her right breast that reads “Madison Preparatory”. Feeling Belle’s scrutiny, the girl snaps her pink gum, queries Belle’s interest with an expletive, turns on her heel, and sits down in the back of the train near clonal girls, who simultaneously turn their heads in Belle’s direction and with a fair amount of eye-rolling.
