I go to bed as soon as I've assured the camp that all is well, I lay my head down on my pillow and let sleep take me.
"Rock a by baby on the tree top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock, when the bow breaks the cradle will fall and down will come baby to mummy you'll fall" The face of a baby fills my mind, a beautiful baby with dark, curly hair and bright blue eyes.....
"Robin is mummy singing to you again? Look at that smile, it's just like yours dear" That voice.....I know that voice, his face hits me hard but melts me like butter Xavior....
"Your eyes though" thats my voice! "our beautiful Robin" I coo, nuzzling the baby's face, the baby giggles and my heart jumps as it does so.
"Our child" Xavior sighs "Proof of our love, our baby"
I open my eyes what was that? Why did I have that dream? I touch my cheek, the warm liquid dripping down my hand. I curl myself up into a ball the image of the child filling my mind. I touch mine and Xavior's amulets and close my eyes again. I'll save you Xavior, I promise.
I'll wait forever x
