As Isabel dozed off, the image of her little girl went with her. Tiny Selene, intubated yet blue. Isabel went to sleep whispering to her little one, “Mommy loves you so.”
And that’s when Artemis came singing. “Hush little baby, don’t you cry.”
“Is that you?” Isabel asked.
“Yes,” came the soft reply.
“That’s one of my favorite lullabies.” Isabel hummed along. “My sweet Selene isn’t going to make it, is she?”
“She’s with me now,” Artemis whispered.
“Is she happy?”
“She is.” Artemis ran her fingers though Isabel’s hair.
“Does she remember me?”
