From the Womb of the Earth
- Special delivery: MacRannoch has sent Claire and Jamie a pearl bracelet and a wolf pelt. Aren't wolf pelts supposed to be saved for ten-year anniversaries?
- They then put on robes and travel deep under the Abbey to the warm mineral springs together.
- Once underground, they disrobe and hop into the warm waters; they end up heating the waters up a bit more, if you catch our drift.
- When they get out to cool, Claire reveals to Jamie that she is pregnant.
- They sit back and relax. Claire thinks, "And the world was all around us, new with possibility" (41.142).
- The end.
