The Unseelie are not easily moved to tears. But there is one, that Sebastien took shortly after my having given birth to Jocelyn. I remembered how taken he was with his new infant daughter. Just moments before this photograph she had been screaming her protest from having been taken from the womb. She quietened only for a short while when Sebastien held her his arms. He spoke with soft, gentle words in French, and it was a sound that she must have recognised, for from that moment onward, their bond was instantaneous.
I daresay that Sebastien did not want to hand her over, not even when Jocelyn began howling with hunger once again. With a little help from Amarante, he finally relented and turned Jocelyn over to me so that she might nurse.
