Biting his lip and realizing Melina has the girl protected, Vance grumbles and heads after Rai'el."Bloody woman! Why's the good lookin' ones always have to be crazy?"He continues to hold onto the One Power.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Cradling the woman's head she poured out a small measure of dark liguid from a stoppered vial, "Drink this, IT will ease the pain."

Melina It will ease you pain while I set you bones.:

She helped the woman to swallow the bitter mixture and when the woman's head went limp she laid her back down.   Melina finishes her Delve  "Darek I nee your help. I can knit bones but they must be straightened. She will most likely pass out but that has it benefits."

With Darek's help she sets one arms and leg and bound broken and cracked ribs and then  then sets to worked with healing weaves.

We will be leaving as soon as as Vance and Raiel return. I cannot take us into tar Valon but there is a place not far from it that I have been at to just look at t it.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
It was easy enough for Vance to  follow the woman's trail that Raiel had followed to backtrack where she had come from.  When Vance got to a rock fall on a narrow trail about 2 leagues further back. however there was not sign of Raiel when her first came up to it.

Listen, Spot, Track/Survival.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Vance stops at a fall of rocks that crosses a small trail one horse lays dead under as fall of rock only the front portion is showing the other a pack animal stands  quietly enough though holding one leg up and not resting any weight on that leg.  still tied to the horse that is down. Raiel is no where to be seen with with the fall across the trail she cannot be far, think vance.  A careful scrutiny of the area gives him two possibilities. a slight sound from above the trail on the small bluff and a flow of shadow a bit further on. One of those must, or rather might be Raiel. Then again they might not be her but something else..  The Dark Wolves the woman spoke of-- Giant black Wolves.?????

Still gripping onto the One Power through invisible garbaged caked hands, his stomach swirling around feeling like mush-Vance proceeds towards the sound from slightly above. Cloaked in the shadows, he moves silently onwards with his rapier drawn.

R slide of rocks.  She was still investigating that as he arrived.  She watched Vance enter the area of the slipping  into  full stealth mode and made her way towards  with careful tread she eased her way until she was slightly behind him.
She spoke just  to the left anad behind him as she rose. She stalked him as he moved

"Good enough I suspect, for a Wetlander. her purposefully soft voice rings in his ears."

"Come take a look  at this, and tell me what you think."

She moved up the bluff above the rock fall to a point where the hillside was undisturbed.  What do you think of this.

She gestured towards several deeps  scrapes near a large depression that had once held something firmly set in place. The ground was torn up around the area.She moved on to also show him huge paw prints etched into the stone ground on top of the bluff.

"Night Runners.  What you kind call Dark Hounds."

DC to notice Raiel

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
With his attention drawn to the deep gouges. Vance can see them clearly and more that that.  Holding ou to the One Power he sense something else as well.  Someone had use Saidin.

Saidin the male hale of the One Power, half of the True Source wielded by men, filthy with the taint of the Dark One.  As Vance well knew,

The ddep gouges were made by nothing like a heavy branch or stick or any other implemented known to man. Vance knew this. He could feel the taint  of Saidin in the stone gouges itself.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
When Rai suddenly speaks and appears, Vance swings his rapier out of instinct at her. The thin blade stops a half-inch from her throat."Are you insane woman? I could have killed you. Of course you may have been able to try to kill me...but that is besides the point..."

Upon seeing the gouges, Vance's eyes widen. He kneels down to examine them more but looks rather confused."....someone or something used Saidin. Or is using it. It can't be these creatures can it? And I don't know what a Darkhound is! Hell I didn't even think a Trolloc /existed/."

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Raiel does not flinch as Vance's rapier is swung around
 quickly right at her throat. Her spear tip is brought up inches away to uintersect his blow, but neither weapon touches the other.s

"Night Runners serve the dark One and his highest minions only.  They are sent to hunt one person and they do not give up.  Come see the one true sign of their passing." She leads him to an exposed hard rock surface where the foot prints of several large canines  are literally burned into the surface-burned deep into hard rock.
"They leave not tracks on dirt but on rock they do." She pointed to the deep impressions in the rocks surface.  "However they do not hunt us or the woman we found otherwise they would be on us in a instant. They hunt only their appointed prey and nothing else."

As for the use of Saidin.  That I have no knowledge of but......" her voice trails off.  Let us gather this woman's things and return quickly.  Darek must know

He fierce golden eyes stare at Vance before she hoods them. "You are one of those like Darek."  It was not a question, rather a statement of fact. "I can understand why you have said nothing."

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
"I'm simply a traveler, Rai'el. Nothing more. Now caught in some strange game full of nightmares and in which all I wish is for some gambling, fine wine, a woman or two and good food. And yet now drawn into something else by the three of you." Vance doesn't seem too thrilled but he doesn't seem angered either. His tone is masked of most emotion.

Lowering his rapier, he turns and goes to head back to the others."Let them hunt someone else then, its none of my concern. I'll go with you all to your destination, and then to part ways. I will not be hounded by witches." Wow.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
"A twisted tongue is soon tangled" Raiel says almost emotionlessly but not quite,

"You have been honest to this point  is not forthcoming. I will let this lie--for now.  It makes no difference to me." With that said  she turned to gather up the pack horse and limping riding horse. and started back to where the other were.

Wworkds foloated back to Vance as Raiel headed nown the trail. "A simple man you are not." Vance of Nowhere.

Shaking his head, the man lets the One Power ease from his grasp. He sheathes his rapier as he heads back towards the others."I never claimed to be a simple man, with simple thoughts backed by simple actions. But I do enjoy simple pleasures." Nice Vance.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Raiel turns suddennly to face Vance. One thing I have learned form my time with Melina and Darek.  He cannot fell her weaving, She cannot feel him but a man who can channel can feel Saidin. No one else can except those that can touch the One Power.  can  though Melina says she knows when Darek is holding and using the One Power.

They continue down the trail and approach to within about 100 yaeds of the other.

Suddenly Raiel speaks again but with her back to Vance. "I like simple pleasures too." That came later totally out of the blue.

"You cease to amaze me." Vance continues back to the others, rapier remaining drawn. He feels the taint within his body, his stomach churning-yearning for more despite how sick it makes him feel.

"I will get the poles." Raiel said as she moved to the woods for two strong branches, or sapling trees that would serve their purpose. Once found she quickly cut them down with her large hunting knife and trimmed them up and returned to camp.

However she did not know how to make a Horse litter, even though she had  carried man a litter by hand.

"We should Travel there then. As much as the ride has been pleasant, a gateway is the quickest way. If I make the gateway, then any Ais Sedai in the area will not learn the weave."
Darek had traveled through the area before and knew secluded area inside a copse of trees. There was a small pond fed from a spring that bubbled up from underground.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Melina nods. "I agree."  Few  males can channel and we females cannot  feel you doing so.  But....Sometimes I think I know where you are.  I am not sure of it but I get a feeling.  Melina turns to Darek  "Do you ever Sense me weaving Saidar?"

Raiel, gather every thing up we are going to open a Gateway.  She looks over to Vance.  "This weave a thing little known or rather long forgotten and we hope to keep it that way.  In the wrong hands it could be disastrous. It is already being used by a few pf Leafblighter's minions--Black Ajah and most likely the Foresworn those qho call themselves The Chosen.

"Yes," Darek agrees with Melina. "Its as if, through you, I can feel saidar as well. Channeling together, perhaps we can channel the True Source."

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
"No need Rai." Vance goes to gently pick up the wounded woman, perhaps not realizing she is perhaps a Aes Sedai. He cringes for a moment, releasing the One Power from his body.

Turning to Melina, he shakes his head."From the pan and into the fire, me lady. I suppose this is the way the Wheel wills. Tar Valon..." He grits his teeth."..and I got my own tricks up my sleeves. I need little of others. The Chosen...the bloody Dark One..Black Ajah...I thought they were fairy tales. Trollocs...Darkhounds...I should have stayed in Ebou Dar!" A wry grin.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Once everyone is ready, Darek opens himself and channels saidar slowly.

he channels a gateway just large enough for everyone to slip through, one by one with the horses in tow.

Once through, Darek follows, then unweaves the weave, leaving no residue to be found.

"That way, about half hour walk," he says when he is finished.

Re: First  nights travel and the last befor Tar Valon
Darek's gateway open by a quiet stream that flowed towards the rive that surrounded Tar Valon. Even at this distance the great Tower rose to startling heights above it surroundings.  THe high walls of arching bridges that connected the island in the river to the shores were dwarf by the looming presence of the White Tower.
The small party with little slung between two pack horse turn towards that Awe=inspiring tower from the Age of Legends with mixed feelings.
