  1. To say that the evening had turned out anything less that ghastly was beyond her. Not only had she not done anything worth paying for, now she was indebted to another and would have to discount her services or even give them for free for a time to repay him. Light, she was never going to this place again. The fight was everything she had feared, only somehow Fakhir had managed to win. It wasn't pretty and neither was he by the end of it, but he was still moving and the other two weren't so that was what mattered. She wasn't sure what he was thinking when he had looked at her and said
  2. Just putting this up here so I can fill it in with my training stuff.

  3. Aramina watched the interaction, but stayed far enough in the shadows to not be seen. Even if she was, so far in the shadows no one would see her for an Aes Sedai. Not that it really mattered, but this was the young man's errand and she didn't want to interfere with it. As he came back to her side she smiled. "I would be delighted to walk with you back to the Tower grounds." She said as she smiled slightly at him. In truth, it was time to get some more work done and she had taken more than enough time away from that tonight. Aramina
  4. OH..... that would be awesome... though if he catches her too many times I don't think there will be much of a Band left :P *imagines Cairhain suddenly deciding that all men in the Band have slept with her and beating them all sensless* Hummmmm... sounds like something that might work with out later plans... muhwahhhahahhh
  5. Jatasha watched as Fakhir started putting his things on the table. She felt partially responsible, but only partially. After all, the men might have left him alone if he had only left the coin. Still this didn't look like it was likely to end up good. He asked her to mind his things, but she grabbed his hand as he dropped something new into the pile. "Do you be mad?" she asked. He was giong to get himself hurt and she'd follow if she wasn't careful. "Mad?" Fakhir snorted as he began to loosen his shirt, it all made perfectly good sense to him. "A bet settles it, and if I'd a
  6. She reached a hand out to the horse who began snuffling her hand as if it could smell the apple still on it. Probably could, she thought with a small smile. "I do be naming her?" She looked up at Carnhain, not sure why he was letting her name it, nor why he was teaching her to ride. She wasn't about to turn down the offer since she wanted to learn but even more, she wanted to spend the time with Carnhain. Not that she didn't get to see him, but he was important and had other things to do than spend all day in bed with her. Horses in stories always had fancy names but she couldn't
  7. Anabel gave the woman a small smile as she began talking. Nerves. She had known before they walked in that the Sage was nervous, but probably no more so than she had been the first time Anton had forced her to take on a Wanderer for herself for the first time. Even if he had been there, she'd been a mess. No, there was nothing wrong with her current companion and she nodded when the Sage said her name. "There isn't much to tell for me." She said, her speech coming out a bit quicker now that she was back in the Stedding. "Found him in Amadacia and we had an easy enough time coming h
  8. Jatasha nodded even as she tried to keep from following his eyes to the men on the floor. If he hadn't come ... well ... she'd been the one left unconscious on the floor before and it had only been when her father came to find out why she hadn't come home to check on him that she'd been saved from the men in the place. Her father had beaten her when she got home for being so stupid but he was the same one that kept her from working in tandem as Fakhir suggested. She pushed the thought away. "I do be knowing him, though if I know he be here tonight I do no be coming. I do no have too m
  9. Throwing them to the ground hasn't been part of her plan, but it worked out well enough as someone managed to get in the middle of it all and soon enough she had a hand up from the floor. Looking up, she realized who it was and though she was little shaken at the incident she gave a small smile to Fakhir. He didn't say anything to her, but took the man's pouch and asked loudly if anyone wanted drinks. She stayed by his side as he payed out some coin and she was safely seated with him. She took a sip from her own glass and looked at him, taking a deep breath as she did so. "Thank you
  10. Her morning was beginning far earlier than Jatasha was used to. Not that she minded. There was very little she minded when Carnhain had something to do with it and he had asked her to meet him here bright and early. She had pulled her bair back in a braid, unsure of what the day would bring. She hoped she'd eaten enough breakfast for whatever was about to happen. She'd only eaten a little bread and an apple but it was her normal and she doubted he'd be doing anything too strenuous this early. At least she hoped. She saw him as she came into the stables and smiled. He seemed to sense
  11. The time of night was perfect. As it always was. Working around Inns and taverns you noticed the timing of these things, in the way the lulls and upswings came and went. Including the time of night when fights were likely to start up. Men were in from their work, the days wear and tear still resting heavily on them as they came to drink it away. As they started to loosen up their tongues began to loosen as well and the angry drunks and the frustrated men began looking one another over for a good fight. Jatasha had her back to the wall as she watched the interactions, a mug in one hand an
  12. Jatasha caught the look one woman gave the other, but she pretended not to notice. She wasn't about to get involved if she could help it and she really did like the idea of learning the bow. Knife work was good to know, but it was something she'd had all too much experience with in Illian. The bow would be something completely different and easily separated from her old life. She smiled at Raylin then. "Alright then. I do be thinking you have your hands full though. I do no know if I be a fast learner with this or not. Let's hope you have the patience to be helping me. Though I
  13. The travel had been long and though they hadn't pushed themselves past endurance, Anabel was more than happy to have reached the edges of the woods that surrounded her beloved Stedding. The familiarity of it gave her step a little more swing and she smiled over at Darin as they walked. "Nearly there." She said in her slowed down speech that allowed for others to understand her more clearly. She stopped suddenly, remembering the one thing she hadn't told him. Something that would probably upset him without the warning considering his fear of being alone with this thing. "Something that I s
  14. :P Carnhain verse Fakhir. Seems all too likely a scenario at the moment :P Woohhhooo! boys fighting over me! YEAH! ER.. I mean... Jatasha. Yeah. YEAH!
  15. It was some time later that Jatasha found herself laying on her side, looking down at the man in her bed who seemed to be resting peacefully. Sometimes they rushed out the door and sometimes they took their time. She preferred them to relax, at least most of them. It gave her the feeling that she had done something right to give these men a little quiet in the middle of the chaos of the world. It never lasted long, only a moment or two sometimes before it was gone, but it was something she enjoyed, something that she looked for when she could get it. It made her work less crude really, to
  16. Jatasha cocked her head to the side for a moment, thinking about what to say to his question. She was trying to get away from the business, truth be told, someday she would, but there were good times and bad. "It do be depending on the company." She said with a small smile. "I think you do be having to tell for yourself if I be enjoying my work today or not." She took a few steps away and nodded towards the door. "I do have a place not far from here. If you do no be minding a little more walk." She was out the door then and he followed as she knew he would. It wasn't a long walk bu
  17. Oh light. Just what she really needed was someone with the amount of hate that this one showed already. If he ever came to understand the truth of how she had come to be here now he might hate her as well. But she would do her duty and hope to avoid anything of the sort. She shook her head. "It doesn't seem to run in those who control the One Power." She said. "If it's just because of it's rarity or something about the Power keeps them from touching them, I don't know. I don't know that anyone knows. So for now you don't need to be worried. What you do need to worry about, is th
  18. Aramina laughed lightly at the boys words. She hadn't expected the joke, nor the excuse afterwards. Still it was an interesting turn to her evening that would have surely been passed in a much fouler mood had she not found him wandering as she had. "Alas that fate is so cruel. But duty is not to be undertaken lightly, nor to be abandoned once taken. But know that I will keep your memory in my heart long after most women have died." Not withstanding the Last Battle or her own politics. If she lived through those things, she would remember him. Tonights humor had set him in her mind
  19. So. That was the sort of man he was. Not hard to tell really, but it was always best to know. Some men looked at a whore and thought they could make something else out of her, but others only saw their way to the mattress. He was of the latter and that was fine by her. Not that she'd expected much else, but one could always hope. It was fun with the other time sometimes, to pretend you were really being courted. They brought flowers and real sweets, bangles and perfume. It made them feel like their experience wasn't as cheap for having bought a girl. Normally they were the type that h
  20. Now this was a problematic question if there ever was one. Easy pickings? Sure, she made good money with the Band and she'd thought if she ever managed to get out of her feather tossing she just might contact one of the girls she used to know to come and learn to take the easier path. Not that it was all peaches and cream of course. Some of her customers liked things rougher than the normal street thug. Or at least, they could pay to make it private enough to do. But it was safer than the streets and if a girl screamed in the middle of the Citadel because a man wasn't taking no for an an
  21. Why had she decided to come out at just that point in time? She shook her head as she looked at the man before her. A man of the sword, scarred like Carnhain but not near as gentle she bet. She'd not yet a man that was for all the disbelief she would get if she actually said that to anyone that knew Carnhain. Still, it was a bit irksome to be called girl, no matter that she was still young. She'd been through her fair share of trouble and come out on the other side a little wiser for it. She hoped. She smiled at the man no matter that she was a bit grumpy with his words. You neve
  22. What Carnhain doesn't know.... will probably get people killed when he finds out.... :P
  23. I like! WK CCed! Just remind him to watch out for Jatasha... or.. um.. Cairhain if he gets caught :P
  24. She smiled at his words. Not that there was anything funny about them, but just at the way he was ready to move on. A man of action, someone that needed to move and have something to focus on. She could understand that. She had been much the same way when she had first come to the Stedding. Too much time to think about her past had only led her to letting more and more of the wolf take over her emotions. And now she had to keep the palm sized rock tied to her belt and put up with people's curious stares about it, knowing that they would never really understand why she needed it or how it
