“Mother,” Aubadie said, racing in as fast as her little Gelert feet could carry her. “MotherMotherMotherMother!” “What is it, little one?” Aubadie’s mother laid the spoon she was using to stir their stew back in the pot and turned to nuzzle her daughter. “What has you so upset?” “I was with Bornar in the Bazaar earlier,” she said, “and I was singing and he was dancing and playing the trumpet.

That sometimes, bad things happened and there was no easy way to fix them. When she was older, as she became a grown Gelert, she would remember sobbing into her mother’s fur over the plight of a faerie she had never met...
