The Act itself ---> https://pastebin.com/yBm0bAm0
Evette gives a crying baby to you.
You have emoted: Cheliyi stares at the baby, looking torn.
The ghost of a smile passes fleetingly across Evette's lips.
With several beats of her wings, Evette alights upon a tenebrous leopard's shoulder.
A tenebrous leopard rubs up against Evette affectionately.
Like a gentle ripple in a crystalline pool, you say, "But... they are so small."

Tridemon tilts his head curiously at you.
Ocean waves echoing softly behind his voice, Tridemon Regalis, Keeper of Pure Waters says, "You alright?"
You have emoted: Cheliyi clenches the hand wrapped in a pale tea-towel, an flicker of pain coming over her expression. Eventually she just shakes her head.
You think to yourself: **the fuzz cut through like a knife, the deep ache in your chest returns, how could you?**.
Barely above a whisper, you say, "I summoned Mother Night earlier this month."

Gurashi's melodic voice sings into your mind, "* a gentle thrum of pale verdant hues, their voice far-off and curious * Mine-child?"
Harmony echoes in your mind as you sing to Gurashi, The Heart's Friend, "Oh! Hello dad, yes. **a sudden wash of green in a sea of grey, only to be smothered by something else** Did you need something, yes?"
You think to yourself: They had a dad too.
You have emoted: Cheliyi winces, and returns to hunting.
Cheliyi squints. Hesitantly, she asks, "Does He need pants?"
