"My little Eumelia, you are safe now. No harm will come to you as long as I'm here"
The woman said softly, caressing the baby's cheek, seeing her eyes flutter and stare up at her. The woman felt her heart leap as she saw her eyes look back at her.
"This world isn't entirly cruel, but there are people who would rather watch the world burn"
The woman said, as she placed her in the bassinet. The little girl squirmed before finally laying still as she went into dreamland. The woman smiled warmly as she walked out of the room, staring back one more time as she closed the door, letting her daughter sleep.
