“You have a daughter, my lord,” the midwife tells me, her expression suggesting that I will be less than happy at the news. She could not be more mistaken.
I love Eldarion dearly and am proud of my son and heir, but a daughter is sheer delight. She will never want for her father’s love.
My daughter will grow up almost as fair as her mother and bear her mother's gentle grace. She will dance like a butterfly and sing like a nightingale.
