"So, Moon," Delin's voice broke through the sounds of chatter and splashing drifting across the mountain-tree platform. "Would you tell me about your mother?"
Delin asks awkward questions, Moon can't stop thinking about parenthood, and Malachite... is Malachite.
Set very shortly after the end of The Harbors of the Sun.
Chime suddenly realized he had some urgent work he needed to do in the library when the question arose, and Moon didn't even think about asking Jade, knowing how busy she was. Instead, with the five babies crawling all over him, he turned to the other consorts. "Stone, could you help me feed them...?"
Stone looked like Moon had just asked him to balance a table on his head - he could probably do it, but it was a very odd request. But Ember, who had been lounging near the hearth in the consorts' bower, sat up. "I could help, if you wanted," he said, a little shyly.
