This is a Cerin's Howl spoiler, though god knows no one is surprised by these things anymore. All the same, don't say I didn't warn you later, when the novel is published and you're all, "Oh . . . I knew that . . ."
This is baby Cerin and his mother, Mern, by the sea. Since he was always sick he pretty much just held her hand and stumbled around behind her all the time. Which, while slightly sad, is horribly cute. Really really cute.
And yes, for all of you who are staring in awe and confusion, yes, I still remember this novel and no, I haven't given up on it or anything. Ravil's just been charming me with his baby blues.
