Not the Fastest of Learners

Dempsey did not even attempt to look like he was listening. Indeed through all of the Accepted's rather long and tiring speech, he was picking at his nails, ensuring there was no dirt beneath them. After the man had finished, Dempsey could not help but laugh at what little he had caught the man saying. His laugh was high, loud, and long. It sounded like a woman's loud laughter, only was tinged by traces of masculinity, making it quite odd. "My dear man, if you honestly expect me to bow...needless to say it shall not be. Aes Sedai may bully me about, as the dear Mistress of Novices proves, but not you!" He took a deep breath to steady himself, for anger and frustration was seeping up from the recesses he had attempt to hide them in. "If you honestly think you know how I feel, losing my gorgeous clothing, because you are a Tinker of all things, you have another thing coming," Dempsey wiped away tears at this statement. The thought of his clothes made him acutely depressed.

The man seemed about to speak, but Dempsey cut him off and continued. "That said," he simpered, ending with a short sigh. "I should like to see the Tower. Take me throughout it, and never mind whether a place is forbidden or not. I may be a long way from Cairhien, but that does not mean I do not still have influence!" He said this proudly, but found himself doubting his words. His first visit with an Aes Sedai had gone terribly, and he was beginning to become less frustrated and more afraid of his situation. Indeed, the very idea of not having servants to command or his precious clothes sent thrills of terror through his innards. He of course did not express any of this, and his Cairhien noble face was used to hiding his thoughts and feelings. He took another deep breath, and waited for whatever the strange Accepted would have to say to him.

OOC: Sorry this is a long time in coming!
