The wolves had gone and Jomar looked in despair at his newborn daughter. She lay quite still and for a moment he thought she was dead. But soon he saw she was alive and seemed quite happy. It was as if she had already forgotten all the dreadful things that had happened. Jomar calmed himself a little and tried to be happy, but when he thought about the evil curse he rushed into the Palace park and tore his beard.

He told them her name was Luna and they all cheered.
