She had captured the attention of a beast, and in grievous fear, she ran to hide in the lightless caverns beneath the sky-clad world, where, tenderly she nourished his monstrous child, by her own hand, at her own cold fireside. Sweetly she fed it, from her leaking life into a cauldron of bitter syrups, until one day, Raven saw that the beast’s own claws and fangs had appeared on the child. She saw the beast’s silver eyes watching her with the glittering knives of jealousy and rage, with the cruelty she’d endured for so long. She saw that it was the face of the beast peering up at her. . Forsaking all tenderness, she unwrapped the child from its furs and carried it back into the world of light and the living.
