Graleon watched from outside the circle of trees. Lyabet was confronting her mother about the "theft" of her youngest child. He was surprised to learn of the boy's ability. He hadn't considered the possibility that these half humans might be more than pets.

He almost mistook her for an element of Fire, until he saw her eyes. They were the color of spring. Leaf green, a give away to her true nature. When he looked into them he saw life. She was of the Earth, solid and nurturing.
She'd make the perfect mother for his heir.
