Healing...And Healing...And Healing...
Mon Oct 16, 2006 20:03 (XFF:,

The class finished up in the Infirmary, and then started making its way to the Green. Kieran couldn't help but be pleased with himself with the fact he had the Talent of Healing. Not that he really thought that he would put it to use that often, but it would help him get away better with his lie of the that he was a Healer rather than an Assassin. What would be more deadly than an undercover Assassin, acting as a Healer? Kieran could only think of a few answers to that, and he wasn't any of the other options his mind came up with.

He looked out at the Green, and at the Soldiers lying there. They would have five minutes to Heal as much as they could? Kieran knew that even with the Talent, he would have difficulty keeping the stamina to continuously weave the Healing weave. It was not an easy weave, even though it seemed to come to him easier than it did to others. At least there was a part of this lesson that made it easier on all of them; they didn't have to perform a Delve on anyone.

It seemed to be his turn much too soon. Five minutes was called, and Kieran began looking amongst the Soldiers. Most of what he saw was cuts, and put it in the back of his mind to Heal those later. He spotted a gash, and quickly Healed it, before moving onto another that had a burn. A puncture there, another cut. He Healed them in order of importance, even though sometimes he nearly made it before the time explained earlier was up. It seemed like an eternity he worked, his stamina getting more and more drained as he worked. It seemed that even the slightest of cuts were taking longer than they should to Heal.

The strain was really getting to him, he could tell. He was getting physically, and not to mention mentally, exhausted from the Healing. This had to be the hardest weave he had ever performed, and to keep on using it like he was…it was just insane. He didn't know how much longer he had. It seemed like it had already been an hour since he started. He started fumbling with the weave, and wasn't able to Heal some of the Soldiers in time. He soon lost count of those that he wasn't able to Heal, and when he thought it would never end, it was over, and he was able to rest. Maybe his façade as a Healer wouldn't work as well as he thought it would….

    It grew slowly evident which of the students had the Talent and which did not. For some, the weave came with an almost ridiculous brand of ease–like it had for her when she was but an Accepted. For... more
