The little one smiled, as her mother started tearing up for joy. "Fate," she whispered. "welcome home. Fate brought you here, and fate will be your guide, so I name you Fate." Fate gave a baby coo in response. "Aw, isn't she cute, Selene?" said the new dad.

"She's the cutest little baby ever! I love you, Will!"

"I love you too."

Selene looked down into Fate's smiling eyes.

She would never forget what she saw next. A firey eye inside an upright triangle appeared in the center of Fate's forehead, and her eyes glowed a rich purple. Selene gave a muffled cry as a tattoo appeared around it. A snake, biting its tail. As if it was alive, the tattoo unwound itself and slowly rippled across the baby's skin, traveling down around her right eye, down the edge of her face, to her jawline and to her neck. The panicked mother turned her baby over to watch it crawl to Fate's spine, between her shoulder blades. It wound itself into a circle, with its head at the top, and bit its tail. The living tattoo froze there. Another snake shimmered to the surface of the baby's skin in the small of her back. It did not move. Both snakes were exactly alike, except for they faced different directions. The top snake faced left, the other right. Then another symbol glowed in the center of the top snake. It was like a letter from an ancient language. The letter dimmed, becoming lifeless ink like the serpents.

Selene turned Fate back over, panicked, but she was unhurt, and smiling as the burning eye vanished, and her eyes settled to a darker purple. "A-gooba ga?" she inquired in baby-speak.

"WILL!" Selene shreiked, before passing out.
