"Good enough," Hadara replies. She nods to her warder who though no t wearing he color shifting cloak was unmistakable to Jennor or Bren or those who know warders.

Bren climbs the stairs at an easy pace. Pulling a chair from his room he placed in the hallway so that he will be able to watch the doors to the rooms of the companions.

Re: 4.2 White Tower
It was not above a a candle-mark that the tall cloaked figure entered the inn into the common room of the aforementioned Lord Draconholt entered his blond hair reflecting the lantern light. He glanced about the room and laying eyes of the Hadara Sedai and her companions seated near the hearth at a semi-private table.

He strode over his eye focused on their group. "Lady, I was informed of you presence here and had to come to call on you." He said gallantly and bowed politely to Hadara Sedai. His keen gray eyes held questions unanswered. "How can I be of service to you? I have not forgotten your service to me many years ago."

"It is a pleasure to met you again, my Lord. Please join us. This inn has a rather fine wine. There is perhaps something you can do for me. I have notice that recently the road has grown more dangerous around Whitebridge," Hadara responded--there was a subtle accent on the word "White". I have to wards that I must convey safely to my home. I understand from my guards that you have you coach with you. Are you returning to Caemlyn by any chance."

Re: 4.2 White Tower
"I am headed to my hunting lodge, but I I can ride the rest of the way my coach will be at your service my Lady. It will probably serve you well for your journey through the country side with all its hazards.  The Queen needs to send troops down here and take care of the growing number riff raff. I see you are well provided by your own guards. Otherwise I would go with you but I am trying to find my Daughter she has been away for some time and I have had no communication from her. My hunting lodge is one of her favorite places to be at." I will inform my coachman bring it around in the morning ready to convey you to where you have to go."


"We will use it as far is Caemlyn, Lord Draconholt. We will find a ship there and head upriver to our final destination." Hadara replies to Lord Draconholt. Would you have any tabard for you guards you could spare? They may help with the journey.Now what is this about your daughter, the Lady Azara?

"I will take care of that I can get more at the hunting lodge. She was supposed to go visit cousins of mine.  I had hoped to bring her out this year. She never made it there. She left me a note that she did not want to be presented and was not going to her cousin's. I have receive three more communications from her but she was gone from each place before I get anyone there to retrieve her.

Thayna looks over to Nerissa. "Do you thing we will be repromanded when we get back to the White Tower.  I daresay it would be just so wrong if they did so.  WE were just following orders from an Aes Sedai."

Re: 4.2 White Tower
Trying not to be overheard, Nerissa replies, "If Murane Sedai is, or was, able to confirm the existence of our mission, then all will be well. There may be some cautionary bluff about our consorting with Wilders; but, if we agree to some platitudes on how we behave in the future, most all will blow over.

If Murane Sedai is still in good favor in the White Tower, even if she can not, or can no longer, confirm our mission, then all may still not be lost. We may have to tell our tale again, possibly while under Compulsion, or the like . We should simply tell the truth... but no more than that. We should answer like the Aes Sedai that we hope to become, by using the words and language in the way that they would!

If Murane Sedai is out of favor, we are in trouble. We still may prevail, but it will be out of our control. If we are needed, we will be ok in the end... after a lot of grief.  If we are not needed, then we may be on our own... or worse. We may have to escape; and, if we survive, become Wilders like our former associates.

Does that make sense? If we have to escape, do you want to join up with me... if we can?"

Re: 4.2 White Tower
Nerissa shrugged her shoulders, "We should be prepared for every eventuality. But let's not worry about the worst that can happen! Rather, let's think about the best.

Murane Sedai was in the confidence of the Amyrlin Seat. That's why she directed us to go on our mission.

Or, she knew about this Two Rivers and had her reason for sending us there. That's all that we need be concerned with!"

Re: 4.2 White Tower
I really do wish I knew what was happening downstairs. I just came up here because I needed to talk. Do you think we could find an excuse for going down again? Thayna asked.  I thought perhaps we could mention to Lord Draconholt that lady Azara was fine the last time we saw her. If not that we could say we met her at the Hunting Lodge at least.

Nerissa grinned, "We don't need an excuse. Let's just go back downstairs!"

Thayna Dabei:

"You know, we did tell Hadara Sedai that we met "an Azara" in the other group, and that we had fought crows at her home. Was that a Hunting Lodge?

Azara isn't a common name, to my way of thinking. I don't remember that either of us mentioned her last name, or that Jennor or Ahlandra did either.

Do you suppose that Hadara Sedai has made the connection? Let's go downstairs and see what is going on."
She leads the way towards the door.

Re: 4.2 White Tower
"Azara's last name is Draconholt When the trunks of clothes were brought down they had the crest on the top." You were busy with Azara looking though her closets. I had opened the trunk up before you got there. That is why I knew that gact."

"I am with you,"
Thayna said with a grin. She stepped to the door an opened it. She was surprised that Bren was there already sitting in a chair close by. She gave him a quick looked and turn to go down stairs towards the common room Nerissa by her side the two Accepted  made their way to where Hadara Sedai still spoke with Lord Draconholt.

"She waled over to the table stood Smoothing her skirts and making sure she was tidy. and waited for Hadara Sedai who was still talking lowly with Lord Draconholt.

The Lord ending his words and turned to the the two young women who approached. He stood and bowed slightly to them  both. "Ah, your so charming proteges,. Perhaps they will join us now that we have renewed our acquaintance?" He held out a hand to Nerissa to help her to a sit and then offered the same courtesy to Thayna.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Hadara turns to there two charges. "You finished you conversation already? Then join us. I would like to introduce to Lord Brandon Draconholt who is on his way to his Hunting lodge.  He had obliged me with the use of his coach to continue our journey."

"No obligation at all, my Lady. I am please to be of assistance at your hour of need, and you were to me some years ago." Kindnesses need  repayment in kind.
  The tall broad shouldered, lord of middle years but still vital waited until the two Accepted were seated and then returns to his seat.

"I do hope your journey will be uneventful."

Hadar Sedai then introduced the Lord to Thayna and Nerissa, giving him their names, truly.  "These two are currently under my care, though I return them home as quickly as possible."

Thayna cast a speaking glance to Nerissa, then turned back to glance at the Aes Sedai and the Lord. "Ah, Lord Draconholt. It is a pleasure to meet you we had the occasion to meet and ride with Lady Azara not to long back and even stayed for a shor time at you Hunting Lodge."

The lord leisurely posture changed as he sat abruptly. "Yow saw her?  When? Where?" He asked quickly, his voice concerned.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Not much point guarding an empty room, so Bren trail behind the two Accepted, not close enough so it would appear they are under guard. Just far enough to be able to come to their aid if needed.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
"We meet her as part of another group while traveling downriver from Maradon. we joined their group since we were going the same direction. These have become unsettled times.  We, off course, began to learn more about each other as we went. We continue to travel and at one point she invited us to stay at your Hunting Lodge She was very kind hostess. From there we travel on to the Two Rivers area Emonds Field to be exact.  That is where our groups parted some 14 days ago." Thayna glossed over much of the story for the sake of the father and for themselves. She had told him as much as she had told Hadara Sedai perhaps a few more details but that was understandable to give more information to the father about his daughter.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Taking 10 (+13=23), Sense Motive, Nerissa tries to get a general feeling of Lord Draconholt as she watches his reaction to what Thayna is saying, and as she continues the conversation.

"And, the Lodge came under some sort of strange attack by birds while we were there." He would find out about that anyway, better to inform him now. "There was no permanent damage done, as far as I could see, and no one was seriously injured."

Nerissa looked at Hadara Sedai and nodded very slightly to her as if to confirm what she had been told about this previously.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Jennor had remained quiet as Lord Draconholt conversed with Hadara Sedai and he continued to keep silent upon the arrival of the two Accepted along with Bren.  Jennor had been unsure whether this was the right time to discuss the group's prior meeting with an "Azara Draconholt".  While Hadara Sedai seemed to trust Lord Draconholt, Jennor was not yet sure what to make of the nobleman.  Still the "cat was out of the bag" now and hopefully His Lordship would handle the news well enough.  Of course if the Lord asked about where his daughter had gone (or who with), that was another story.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
"Maradon? What was she doing in Maradon. That is nearly to the Blight." Lord Brandon wondered out loud, this was said more to himself that to any presently here. "You said she took you to the hunting lodge then went to the Two Rivers area. Why didn't she stay at the lodge and why go to the back of beyond.?"    He turn to Hadara Sedai. "What can you tell me of this?"

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Bren frowned thinking, he would need to question Jannor later when the two were alone. How did they arrived from Maradon to the Two River and in how much time.

These question would have to wait, for now he would listen and be alert.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Nerissa thought about saying something. But when he Lord Draconholt turned to Hadara Sedai for the last question, that, in her opinion, absolved her of the necessity of responding.

Re: 5.2 White Tower
Thayna watch the others trying to make out what they were thinking.  Bren had quizzical concern on his face and he has took a quickly look at Jennor.  not much more just a indication of head turning, but she found that illumination.  She hoped Jennor could keep their secrets well from this dour man. She continued to pay attention to Lord Draconholt words and anything Hadara Sedai said.
