The One Power
Mon Jan 22, 2007 16:39 (XFF:

More and more each day, Merycla was trying to act as if she were already Aes Sedai. For example, the Aes Sedai walked with a particular glide, as if nothing in the world could touch them. It was this sort of grace that Mery tried to imitate, in the hopes that she would one day be able to maintain it without thinking.

Walking down the vaulted corridors of the White Tower, Mery attempted this grace, and was glad to find that being on the deck of a ship for most of her life had afforded her a semblance of that elegance. She allowed none of her pleasure to touch her expression, though, schooling her face to stillness as she pushed open the classroom door.

The place looked as if it had not been used for years – dust was everywhere. With a small frown, Mery embraced saidar, and a quick breeze swept through the room, doing the work that White Tower servants should have done in a matter of seconds.

“Much better.” She said, and took the stool at the head of the unused classroom, indicating that Kaimon should sit in front of her with a brief gesture. Once they were both as comfortable as possible on the hard seats, Mery cleared her throat, easily adopting a lecturing tone as she began to speak.

“As I said before, today you will be learning to embrace saidar, which is the first step in your training to become Aes Sedai. Before we begin, however, I would like to know what your thoughts on the One Power are. Tell me every scrap of knowledge that you currently possess regarding saidar, and we will go from there.”

You didn’t think she was going to dive right into it, did you? ;) Don’t worry, she’s just going by the books. Even if Kaimon doesn’t know a whit about the One Power, feel free to let Mery know. If you have any questions, you know where to find me!

          Mery nodded with each fact that Kaimon gave, and though her face remained stern, a hint of approval touched her voice when she spoke again. “That is a great deal of accurate knowledge for someone who ... more

                  I have to admit, the girl has a will to learn. Mery thought, while watching the play of emotions that swept briefly over Kaimon’s face. The glow of saidar had sprung up around her, for just a moment, ... more

                    “It is the first step on your path to become Aes Sedai, child, albeit a small one.” Merycla said. Kamion nodded and smiled. She was beginning the figure out that this teacher was not one of give out... more
