"Undines are creatures of the fresh water,” she said, in the end. “Guardians of springs, and streams, and all that they feed in turn. They are fair, and strong, immortal and invulnerable to all which might hurt us, but they are born longing for just one thing, one thing that they may never find alone – which is a shame, for they are destined to be alone, unless they can find someone who can love them despite their strangeness."
In which Bard finds a creature in the forest in the dead of winter, and both of them learn to let go of their fears.
