WATHO at length had her desire, for witches often get what they want: a splendid boy was born to the fair Aurora. Just as the sun rose, he opened his eyes. Watho carried him immediately to a distant part of the castle, and persuaded the mother that he never cried but once, dying the moment he was born. Overcome with grief, Aurora left the castle as soon as she was able, and Watho never invited her again.
There was once a witch who desired to know everything. But the wiser a witch is, the harder she knocks her head against the wall when she comes to it. Her name was Watho, and she had a wolf in her mind. She cared for nothing in itself - only for knowing it. She was not naturally cruel, but the wolf had made her cruel.
Card catalog description
A curse from a witch decrees that a boy will never wake at night nor sleep during the day; while a girl is doomed never to sleep at night nor wake during the day, until a twist of fate brings them together.
