A smile curved small lips as he was lifted out of his warm bed and into strong arms. He did not cry, as fear was not an experience he was familiar with, but gazed innocently up at the figure that held him.

He whimpered, then brought one hand up to his mouth, and suckled it, as he gazed up into six pairs of shocked eyes, not quite understanding how his life was about to change.
