Silas had two different lives in these two towns, in Latern Yard he had friends he went out and hang about, but in the Ravloe his life was completely different, he had no friend; he just stayed at his home all through his day.

Silas was the only person that was in to industrial business in Ravloe, which earned him a lot of money. Inhabitants In Lantern Yard, Silas had a friend; or so he thought, which put him against the law, and made everyone hate him. He was called William Dane. Unfortunately, William Dane set Silas up by using Silas' knife to take that persons life by stabbing him, and stole his money, and putting the knife back Silas' pocket so everyone would misjudge him as if he was the killer. Silas was oblige of a crime he didn't commit, and after while people despite him, and from than on everyone made a decision that he wasn't allowed to step foot in the church no longer, it was as if he was exiled from the town. ...read more.


While everyone in the town were enjoying them selves on any special event, he was just sitting in the house and working. He lived all through out his days working and nothing meant more to him than money, till one day, a child was left in front of his house, he was going to keep it for a while and give to church, the longer he spent time with her, he became more attached, he felt alive, so he was confused what he was going to do with the child keep it or give it away. After a while he decided to keep the child and name her Eppie, and as time past they became like father and daughter, and Silas didn't really cared about his money anymore because he found something more important in his life than money. Eppie found a love in her love called Aaron, and decided to get married. Silas decided to go to Latern Yard after thirty years and see how people would treat him there, because of his past history, when he got there everything was changed, the people the area, no one even no who he was, he was glad by the changes in Latern Yard, it amazed him how people lives changes to something that they would never expect. ?? ?? ?? ??
