To Learn or To Torment?
Mon Apr 17, 2006 1:31pm (XFF:

Necros grinned widely as he managed to catch sight of the poster that the Blue Sister had just posted on the lesson board, not the least because he was getting tired of being stuck in the Tower. A trip to Altara!!! I've got to check this out, especially to see this Sister. I can't believe any Sister would set foot in there right now... He quickly turned about and hurried to his room to gather his supplies, not noticing his fellow novices standing around and gaping at him run. Necros was a fan of warm days, although the colder weather had been nice at first it was beginning to get very old.

The next morning after a rushed breakfast he headed over to the classroom, his arm guards buckled on with Scamps holding on to one of them. The last time he had left his little pet in the room for an extended period of time it had destroyed his room by the time he had gotten back. It had taken him the entire night to get it cleaned up, well somewhat at least. Besides what sort of trouble could a squirrel get into while visiting Altara? It didn't take him too long to reach the classroom although finding a good spot took a little effort.

Necros sat up a little straighter as the Blue Sister began to speak, trying to make sure that he could hear every word. “I trust that you all enjoyed your repast as you’ll be needing it. Altara, as you ought to know, is one of the southernmost nations on this side of the Spine of the World. It is located on the Sea of Storms. It is a proud of a long history, and its magnificence can be witnessed in its flag: two golden leopards on a field of checkered blue and red. Miravalles Sedai and I will impress this all upon you. Now, of course, I do not doubt that you’re positively itching to be from here. What better place to learn of Altara than the nation itself? Introduce yourself with your names and any relevant information, and after that, we will take you there.”

When the role-call finally came to him Necros spoke his name clearly and then sat back to wait, only to lean forward, unlike his classmates, as the blast of heat from the gateway hit them. This was going to be perfect!!! He quickly followed after the Sisters and almost felt his jaw drop at the number of people, and the variety of clothing. Yes Tar Valon had a greater variety but Necros had simply passed through it quickly on his way to the Tower, this was something he wasn't accustomed to yet.

When they reached their destination, Necros had been offered so many things by salespeople that he'd never need, and couldn't think of why anyone would need them at that, he sighed in relief before looking about and listening to the Sisters describe the area. When he heard the bet offer Necros looked to see if there was any sign of the horses yet, and when he couldn't see them he was rather disappointed. However he quickly went to the Sisters and announced his choice, going with Faris while hoping his luck was in this day, before trying to find a place to sit with a very good view of the track.

OOC: I think I'll behave for now, but if this lesson stays small Necros'll have to attempt to spice it up a little
