Well I wouldn't say I was a musician but…
Fri Nov 24, 2006 1:34am

A triumphant smile leaped onto her face, she finally made it once through the tune without making a single mistake. The smile turned into one of settled pride as she started the tune again from the beginning. If she thought about it, which she did, she figured it was probably quite silly to be so happy over something so incredibly simple. Though she found it certainly was silly how something so simple could be so difficult. A little bracelet with jewels that light up and a one note melody and it’s taken her almost a month to get a single tune right. Ridiculousness. And of course her sudden confidence inevitably led her to make a few mistakes and her smile quickly melted away as she returned to her previous state of concentration.

A small grunt-like sound was quickly followed by a crashing sound and the snapping of a few branches. Taken by surprise the song stopped in it’s tracks and Kairi turned to the direction of the sound, almost reaching for saidar for a bit of comfort. A woman with short hair was looking around in obvious confusion. She had no spark and her hair was short and she certainly wasn’t Aiel so she was probably an Aethan’Tar. Not that she was sure being Aiel had anything to do with the assessment it was true nonetheless.

The girl did look vaguely familiar but she was already awkwardly edging away back towards the foliage that was still vibrating from the impact. She bowed, a curtsey would’ve looked ridiculous without a dress, and blurted a quick apology.

“I beg your pardon, I didn’t see that last root… It’s just that I thought I heard someone playing music…”

Music? Oh… Kairi slowly turned her gaze down towards the bracelet. Right, her song. Her head snapped back up and she spoke sheepishly. “Oh, well sort of. I mean I don’t really play any instruments.” The Accepted slid the bracelet back over her hand and onto her wrist. She stood up and tilted her head to the side. “Do I know you from somewhere?” Kairi’s eyes narrowed, questioningly not menacingly. After a pause she stepped closer and spoke again. “Well I suppose it doesn’t matter. Do you like reading by any chance?”

Her pattern of speech probably sounded pretty bizarre. Almost aloof like a Brown or something. She almost smiled at that thought, Kairi Sedai of the Brown Ajah. No, that certainly wasn’t right.

OCC: Lol it’s kind of funny. I stopped writing here a couple months ago and I think the last string I wrote in was one with Tsuga and Kairi when she exploded a bug and fell out of a tree.

  • What a klutz.Tsuga Sei'Tar, Wed Nov 22 9:58am
    Gaps in her schedule were not precisely rare, but they didn’t happen often. When they did, Tsuga tended to fill them with training on her own, extra work to keep her mind occupied and her limbs busy. ... more
    • Well I wouldn't say I was a musician but… — Accepted Kairi Mahalia, Fri Nov 24 1:34am
      • Well, it may not be the last laugh, but . . ..Tsuga Sei'Tar, Tue Nov 28 5:52pm
        Tsuga was rather not expecting the person she’d intruded upon to show any interest in her aside from irritation. Kiari’s sudden interest in her was a bit alarming, and Tsuga shifted uncomfortably... more
        • ...And you are?Accepted Kairi Mahalia, Wed Nov 29 5:20pm
          Kairi untilted her head at the reply to her question, or perhaps it was at the smile afterwards. Ah yes she did remember who she was, Kairi had been sitting in a tree, and the girl was sitting under... more
          • Where are my manners?Tsuga Sei'Tar, Thu Nov 30 4:52pm
            It was a bit disconcerting that the Accepted didn’t chuckle along with her little cracks, but she was used to strange looks and rolled eyes in response to her off-the-wall comments. So when the... more
            • Bah! Who need them?Accepted Kairi Mahalia, Mon Dec 4 8:43pm
              A spectrum of thought collided on the other woman’s face. Kairi suppressed an exasperated sigh. Being purely a woman of honesty the answer was simple. You either wanted to come or not, a yes or a no. ... more
              • You're not an Aes Sedai yet, are you?Tsuga Sei'Tar, Tue Dec 5 4:38pm
                As Tsuga felt the pouch tucked beneath her shirt, resting on a leather thong around her neck (she’d been robbed before, and no longer kept her money visible), she noticed the Accepted patting her own ... more
                • Hey, your foot’s all wet!Accepted Kairi Mahalia, Sun Dec 10 4:38pm
                  Kairi glanced when she noticed Tsuga stopped. She did a double take and saw that she was examining her boot… and she had just stepped in a mud puddle. The Accepted stifled a laugh, it seemed the... more
