Taking it in Good Stride

Time seemed to freeze. Kandra stared at Kiani for a long moment. Then the reality of it all cam crashing into him. An Aes Sedai? Light! Here I was thinking she was an Accepted, how could I have missed the signs? I've probably made a fool of myself a thousand times over!

And yet, nothing had really changed. He still thought of her the same way, although a touch of nervousness had crept in there. "This is certainly a lot of information to digest." He swallowed nervously. "But to tell you the truth, it doesn't change much. I think it's nice that you trust me enough to tell me the truth. And I'm sorry I thought you were Accepted, that was my mistake."

Kandra smoothed out a crease on his black coat, trying to gather his thoughts. "I'm sorry I can't help you out more with Ty, but I don't know everyone in the Tower, and I haven't really made any friends." It was true, he had only been here a short time, and he didn't have much time to be friendly with other people. "Even though you say you got raised only recently, I thought most Aes Sedai bonded their Warders very quickly. If Ty really wanted to be your Warder, donít' you think he would have found you and talked to you about it?"

By the look in Kiani's eyes, he realized he was wandering into dangerous territory. He decided to veer off in another direction. "I mean, you should have someone to watch your back. I'll be the first to say that Aes Sedai aren't too well liked in quite a few places, and a knife in the back is as fatal to an Aes Sedai as it is to a farmer. You need a Warder, someone who can take care of you." Realizing what he had just said, he tried to backtrack. "Although, I'm sure you can take care of yourself well enough."

He gulped hastily. Fool! Saying such things to an Aes Sedai! You'll get your tongue chopped off! Realizing that arguing with himself was useless, he watched Kiani carefully, trying to see if he had angered her.

        Kiani stood, looking at Kandra through narrowed blue-gray eyes. She wasnít sure what Kandra was going to do; those who handled saidin could be so unpredictable at times, it seemed. ďThis is certainly ... more
