Eve turned with tears in her eyes towards Hearne. "I am life, and I will take all you have created and breathe my gifts inside of them, for such is the love that I hold for all you have made here this day. I shall bless such beauty, and give it a circle of life in which its cycle shall show our own union, for it shall come from the earth and live in its age. When its time is done, it shall return as the water that carries my gifts flows under the watch of the moon, and returns in the showers that wash them. Like us they will know the wonder of new life brought through their seeds, and I shall bear the first, and name her from the stones you have used to create all things, and she shall be filled with the water of life, and be known by us as Opal".
