She's abandoned him only after his birth. She never tried to meet him. As a child he missed his mother and later he hated her. This is the first time elven prince, Femi, sees his mother, princess Nadna, since his very early childhood, in a garden full of roses. I haven't write about this meeting in my novel, but I've imagined this scene so here it is :) Femi has an emblem of his wife, Kremia ferh Kiome on the back of his cloak. Medium: watercolour.
