A Mission of Importance
Fri Jun 9, 2006 10:25 (XFF:

Shayla saw the notice on the boards about a Seanchan invasion. This will get interesting, she thought, especially if that Seanchan woman....Laila, was it?...gets involved...hehehe....time to have fun.... The Soldier reported to the appropriate classroom and waited with the other Soldiers and Dedicated to be given their mission. The room itself was huge compared to some of the other classrooms, and Shayla was surprised at how many asha'man there were in the room.

An Asha'man, whom Shayla had never seen before, walked into the room, looking around at the assembled channelers. After assessing the Spies in the room, the woman went and stood in front of the desk. The room went completely silent as everyone, Shayla included, awaited the assignment. The Asha'man gave them a run-down of what the situation was and what they were expected to do, then told the Soldiers and Dedicated to follow her to the Traveling grounds.

Wow. That's a lot of people to invade with....and how in the world did eight Asha'man, who are supposed to be the best, manage to get themselves captured??....and now us Soldiers and Dedicated are expected to help them? How are we going to manage to succeed where the best could not?...but then again, if I can find a fellow Darkfriend within the camp to contact, I can help pass information about the Black Tower's plans to them....

Shayla, her raven hair wrapped up tightly in its customary bun, followed the other Spies and the Asha'man out to the Travelin grounds.Now what, she thought sourly. I hope this Asha'man knows how to make Gateways, because otherwise I don't see how this is going to work.... And there's one thing I must know... Shayla half-ran, half-walked to catch up to the Asha'man.

"Asha'man," she said respectfully, "What happens if we get captured as well?"
