Another twenty minutes passed before Hilda was called for the interview, which was a standard one and Hilda left being told they would contact her recruitment consultant. The next day Hilda got a phone call from a shocked consultant. The feedback she was given was that Hilda was late, her eyes were bloodshot and her breath smelled of drink. Hilda was flabbergasted. Hilda did not drink because she had epilepsy and alcohol reacted with the drugs causing her heavy blackouts. So Hilda was stone cold sober attending that interview. Hilda was furious about the comment.
Hilda Black's childhood in Ireland is idyllic; it's indulged with horses, ponies, and riding. But misfortune soon becomes a constant companion. At age fourteen, she's diagnosed with epilepsy.
