The ship captain, curious at the taciturn, lonely-looking young woman traveling by herself, inquired as to her itinerary upon reaching land. She explained the task she had been given, hopeless as she thought it was, and the steely-eyed captain looked down at her thoughtfully. "Doubtless you know your own brother best, so if you say you do not expect him to return, I suppose you will not be wrong. But I do wonder, my dear," he said, stroking his iron grey beard, "if you will not find that your perspective on this changes. Distance has a way of opening the eyes."
Arriving at her brother's home, she found him there doing sums with his business partner, a young man with dark hair, kind eyes, and a warm countenance. Her brother, happy to see his dear baby sister after so long, introduced the two, and as the young man took Caroline's hand in his and smiled, she suddenly had the peculiar feeling that something in her universe had just... shifted.
She never did make the return trip home.
