Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

For his part, Haeden was far from expert in the use of the Domani utensils, but there had been some experience with it during his training and upbringing in the Grey Tower. A warder had to always be prepared for any situation their ward may partake of, after all. Still, it wasn't entirely smooth sai...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Haeden certainly had no complaints about just walking and spending time in the company of his wife. After all, this was still far less physical exertion than an average day in the training yards, but he did know that if they just kept going in circle after circle, the crew might well start to look a...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

That draw a smile from him. The man certainly never smiled so much at any time in his day-to-day life as he did when he was in the privacy of his wife. Admittedly, being around his family--especially his younger half-brother--did come a close second. It was still markedly second place, though. "...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

"Nothing to apologize for, Liaran," her husband responded warmly. He knew her, after all, and she was more introspective than the average woman, even the average Aes Sedai--if there was such a thing as an 'average' Aes Sedai, of course. That was a bit of philosophy up for debate and not ri...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

He listened, nodding thoughtfully. He could not help but be a little sad that there was something she missed or wished that he could not provide her, and yet he understood. Life was all about choices, and at least to live without regret for that choice... Well, that was more than many people could s...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Much as she had done, he listened intently and thoughtfully to her as well. For him, the Windfinder thing was not news and did not need much commentary. At least, he didn't have any. Instead, he chuckled, a bit wryly. "Honestly, I'm still not entirely sure what does and does not interest me yet...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Haeden enjoyed those moments when his wife felt more talkative than others, although he never begrudged the quietude either, since he was very similar in that. He listened attentively, with small nods here and there to show that he followed what she said and was taking it all in, just as his eyes di...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

He nodded with a small, pensive smile. "It's like most skills that require physical tasks. I could talk all I wanted about how to use the sword, and one must before you begin, but the student still cannot fully grasp it until they get a training blade in their hand and start to do things with i...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

He could never experience the same feelings about the sea, in the same ways, as she did. Anymore than she could feel the same about watching a herd of horses dancing in a wide-open field. One could appreciate and admire and even love it, but it would still never be quite the same as those who had gr...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

"I am happy to stay here a while longer, or however long you wish to," he said easily. Even if he had very little (no) experience being on the water, he felt himself already acclimating to the motion and the different feeling in the air. The sights, sounds, smells were all different, but a...
