Kamion Drendi
A New Beginning
Mon Jan 22, 2007 15:51 (XFF:

Kamion paced the hall and tried to stand still. It didn't work. The Aes Sedai, mysterious as always, had told her nothing beyond the fact that she was getting a mentor today-which was not exactly reassuring. This mentor would be teaching her how to embrace and channel saidar. Kamion couldn't say whether she was excited or nervous-it was thrilling to think that soon she would be able to touch the One Power, but she didn't know what to expect. Her mentor was also taking an awfully long time to get ready. And if there was one thing Kamion hated, it was waiting. So, Kamion paced.

“You are Kaimon Drendi?” a voice asked behind her. Kamion whirled around, startled. She had not been expecting someone behind her. Turning, her eyes widened even further. The girl that stood in front of her had dark skin that stood out in stark contrast to her white Accepted's dress. She towered over Kamion, like most people. There were elaborate tattoos on her hand, and she stared at Kamion with a faint scowl on her face. A windfinder, Kamion thought with awe. She had only heard of the Atha'an Miere, but had never seen one. Now it seemed she was going to get the chance. Belatedly, she remembered she was speaking with an Accepted, and she swept a curtsy and murmured agreement with the question.

“Good. I am Merycla din Phaedray, and I am to be your mentor.” the girl continued. Kamion stifled a small start of surprise-so this was her mentor. She studied Merycla unobtrusively a bit more. The girl seemed fierce, but underneath it all, Kamion detected a trace of gentleness. She had gotten very good at reading people in Cairhien. With a mental shrug, Kamion supposed she could have gotten worse. After studying her for a few more moments, Merycla turned abruptly and led the way out of the hall. Kamion hurried to follow her.

The Accepted led them to an empty classroom that looked like it hadn't been used in a while. Kamion looked around, and saw that it was fairly empty, save for a dusty desk and some old chairs. It seemed the servants didn't get around to here much. Apprehensively, she watched Merycla, but she seemed lost in thought for the moment. Turning, Kamion perched gingerly on one of the rickety chairs and waited to see what was coming next. This was going to prove to be an interesting lesson.
