'Accidental' Video 1: A Little Bird's Song

As the video starts, there is a man standing with his back to the camera.  Long blue-black hair lays loose against his shoulders, messy and snarled.  He sways back and forth in an odd, almost worried rhythm.

"He's sick.  He's sick.  My Little Bird's sick and needs to rest," the words are soft, spoken to the same odd rhythm as the man's swaying.  "I want him to be better soon.  To be better now.  Why isn't he better?  Why doesn't the healing work?"

The Beast crouches down by the bed then, allowing a dark shock of hair belonging to someone curled up in a bundle of blankets on the bed to be seen for the first time.  However, the Beast doesn't stay that way long, bouncing back to his feet a few moments later and blocking the man from view again, "I know!  I feel better when he sings to me. I will sing to him!"

There is silence in the room for several moments and then a soft, low, harsh but oddly melodic voice starts singing a song in Ancient Gaelic.  It's a lullaby.  One his Little Bird said he wrote.  It is not long, so The Beast repeats it.  Over and over again.

Until the feed ends...

[When it's obvious her words weren't making any impact, Grainne pauses and stares at him, tears starting to form.]

Let me talk to him...

[She had to try one last time.]

[Once Diarmuid appeared on screen, Grainne freezes, tears still streaking down her face. She can hear him, see him, but there's a split second of surreality where her mind defaults to her pre-Servant self and tries to reach out and touch him through the screen. Her hand only meets smooth plastic though, jarring her back to reality.

She hits the "end video" almost immediately, her side of the stream going blank.]
