The man only downplays the abortion and conveys his desire to continue his traveling lifestyle. Jig wishes to end the conversation and begs "Would you please please please please please please please stop talking?" (555). This shows how much she dislikes the man's unwelcoming thoughts towards the child. Jig is not in favor of an abortion and she shows this through her sarcastic reactions.
Moreover, Jig seems to be not only unwilling, but also without any desires and aims in her life. Being pregnant, she does not think about her own future and her child, she just listens to the American and his desire to get rid of a child. The situation may turn that Jig will have the abortion and leave the man (Hashmi,72). The pointer of this way of relations development is that they are different. Jig is a
Even when vexed or confused he pretends to be indifferent and in control. He is oversimplifying the operation he suggests her to undergo. The man wants to lead a pleasurable life that they had before. Although he never specifies what kind of operation he has in mind, the underlying message in the story suggests that the girl is pregnant and hesitates whether to undergo abortion or not.

On the contrary jig is the antagonist because she is opposed to the idea of having an abortion and wants to keep the baby while the man keep insisting on it that she cannot transmit her opinion and express how she feel clearly. One of the things that we notice it take place in Spain by the Ebro River a word that means “Abortion”. While they are resting the man ask for “Dos Cervezas the man said into the curtain”
For example, Mrs Cook says “not a bit of” and the interviewer interrupts saying “whys that?” without letting Mrs Cook finish her sentence. This shows that she doesn’t want to listen to what Mrs Cook has said and she wants to move the topic of conversation on. This contrasts with Toms transcript as when the mother interrupts Tom, she apologises. For example tom says “an’ I wanna” and his mother interrupts saying “so you thin’ sorry go on”. This depicts the relationship contrast between Tom and his mother and Mrs Cook and the interviewer.

When Mrs. Mooney is observing Polly’s interactions with young men, she becomes frustrated that “none of [the men] meant business” and considers sending Polly back to her previous job (63). Mrs. Mooney is highly focused on her own aspirations, and therefore compromises her sense of empathy. Mrs. Mooney is a heavy influence on Polly’s actions.
