Let's get him out of there early
Tue Oct 3, 2006 11:55 (XFF:

There was nothing visibly wrong with the patient that Myrth Sedai, as she named herself earlier, clearly she expected him to learn it all for himself with a clever delving. Bloody Aes Sedai, always making it difficult for anyone who isn't them. Fheivir thought there was no point in arguing or complaining or anything of the like, he simply took hold of Saidin and did as he was taught. Delving into the patient he immediately felt that there was something wrong, though he couldn't identify what it was.

Everyone is watching me, if I do well here there might be a chance I could finally get my bloody advancement. Cursed M'Hael will only give me one if it's obvious. He thought to himself briefly, though it was all at the edge of his mind, he was focused on the body lying before him. Broken bone? No. I listed off possibilities, but couldn't guess at it. He assumed at that point that he hadn't the talent for healing, which was clearly unfortunate. Then it hit him, the boy must have a fever or other non-visible ailment. Fheivir didn't have the strength in water to provide that all encompassing heal so he delved a little deeper looking for it. He thought he heard some prompting from Myrth or Gentry behind him, but pushed it aside so as not to bother him.

There! He felt an already closed wound that had scabbed over, but clearly the patient had been picking at it, opening it again. There seemed to be several of them, mostly across his arms, but the occasional one on his chest seemed to still be closed. They should really tell them not to peel them off. Fheivir tried threading all four powers together to close each cut quickly, but he felt clumsy doing it, almost unnatural. He strained to keep his weave from falling apart or going awry.

He fixed most of the cuts, but left a few on the arm to taunt the boy into scratching again, possibly teaching him a lesson. Now why was he in the infirmary. Fheivir discounted his thought and assumed that those were just the minor wounds that the healers here didn't want to give the time to address.

He let go of Saidin. Stepping back from the table he got a grunt of approval from gentry and took it to mean that he wasn't seen as a failure. Watching the other soldiers gave him a bit of a reprieve. He wasn't the worst, but was far from the best. There was an Asha'man in the lesson, of course Fheivir was far from the best.
