Soldier Kandra sur Samarand
Being Misled...

Kandra's mind wandered for a second, until he was jolted out of his trance.

“Why are you armed at a Festival, when you need not be afraid of anything?”

How had she known? Light! She must have used the One Power! She must have…..felt the knife! And me thinking I could keep it hidden.

"Forgive me milady, but I feel the need to carry it. Even though this is supposed to be a happy time, I cannot help but feel threatened. Not by you of course, but by the unknown. Twice in my life I have come close to dying, and both times it was because I let my guard down. I can't help but be suspicious of everybody. I've tried to unlearn it, but old habits die hard. I feel safer with it, though if it makes you uncomfortable…."

He unconsciously reached into his coat to touch the steel inside. The woman's eyes had a touch of….sadness was it? He pulled his hand out when he realized what he was doing.

"If you don't mind me saying, I am somewhat happy that you aren't an Aes Sedai. While most people tend to clump all the White Tower initiates into one group, I like to keep them separate. Aes Sedai…..intimidate me. I don't know what I would say to her if I met one. I think it's easier to relate to Novices and Accepted, you could say we're all going through the same thing."

The music started up anew, and she turned to him, smiling.

“Do you dance, Soldier Kandra?”

Kandra chuckled softly.

"No milady. I never had the need, or the compunction to. Dancing was just never something that my family did, although my father did host parties. I've always been the type to stand and watch. My father believed that dancing would soften me, which is why he sent me out to chop wood. For him, it built character. For my mother, it just kept the house warm."

Kandra realized he was rambling. Stopping himself before he bored her, he grinned sheepishly.

"Sorry milady. I forget myself sometimes. Hopefully that little….rant will not scare you off."

OOC: Hehe, OK, now it conforms to the rules. Sorry!

    Kiani heard the voice behind her and she turned nonchalantly towards the voice, thinking it was some kind of joke, that she was mistaken for an Aes Sedai. The man was taller than her but then again... more
