Soldier Kandra sur Samarand
Complex Weaves.....
Mon Sep 25, 2006 16:30 (XFF:

Kandra watched nonchalantly as Myrth Sedai explained the connection between the Healing and Killing weaves. He could not see the weaves of saidar , but he knew she had done something when Asha’man Gentry shuddered a little, and his suspicion was confirmed when she informer them all she had Healed the man.

Myrth then beckoned them all into the Infirmary. Kandra disliked places like this, he didn’t like being in a room that was filled with the invalid, it made him uncomfortable. He watched as several people went around Healing the injured. He could see saidin fill the men as they bent over their patients, feel the power in them. Of the women, he saw nothing. It frustrated him not being able to see the female half of the One Power. He told himself that someday, he would overcome that handicap.

The group came to the cot of a young Soldier, with shaggy hair. Kandra had never seen the man before, but with the size of the Black Tower, it was not surprising. There was a sizeable burn on the man’s arm, though it did not look too bad. The man had a look to him, as though he cared a great deal about his physical appearance. By the look on Myrth Sedai’s face, it appeared she had noticed it too.

Myrth continued the explanation, obviously taking control of the lesson. Apparently Asha’man Gentry was here only to offer council on certain things, or perhaps the M’Hael was suspicious of the woman. Kandra stored it in the back of his mind. Better to keep it for later.

The group organized themselves into an orderly line. Kandra was somewhere near the back, but not so much as to feel left out. He watched as people stepped up, one by one, to try their hand with Delving. Soldier Delahurst made no complaint, but clearly wanted for it to be over with. Soon, it was Kandra’s turn.

He stepped up to the edge of the cot. Delahurst regarded him with a look of contempt, but Kandra took no notice. He seized saidin , and began channeling Spirit, Water and Air. On first try, the whole thing just collapsed. Kandra sighed. It was his luck that the three Powers required for this weave just happened to be the three he was weakest in. Luckily for him, he saved himself from total humiliation by succeeding on the second try. He had not been prepared for the complexity of the weave, but then again, nobody had said training at the Black Tower would be easy….

He let the weave fall upon Soldier Delahurst. Suddenly, Kandra became aware of the man. The burn was a dull ache, as if the whole arm had gone partially numb. The man was quite tired, as if he had been running a marathon. Also, he had a small bruise on his left heel. The man was probably careless, and carelessness killed. Especially concidering the surroundings.

Kandra let the weave go, and released the Power. Grudgingly. He was still getting used to letting go. Stepping back from the cot, he let the next person in line pass him. If the Delving weave is this hard, I can’t imagine how hard the Healing weave will be…. Kandra wiped his brow. This was going to be a long lesson…..
