The reflection of the boat in the water highlighted by the moonlight began to fade just like Eveline's dreams of a new life. Eveline could not believe that the opportunity to leave Ireland and her monotonous mundane life had been thrown away, for what was a split second decision, which she now deeply regretted.

Rain had begun to fall, bashing down against the terraced houses and the crooked laid cobble stones along side the now muddy dirt tracks. Eveline, still greatly disappointed at her split second decision, wasn't phased by the sudden change in weather.

Eveline looked at the time in the hallway, and then nodded with acknowledgement that she could not enrol and left. The morning was considerably warmer than the night before. Eveline, removed her overthrow as she was too hot. She had to find a job. She didn't want to return to Ireland. The day passed and fortunately Eveline had found a place to live with her new employer who had given her a job as a scullery maid. The months passed by. Eveline was now comfortable and a lot happier.
