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...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Haeden chuckled quietly, his deep voice barely audible beyond where they stood but the sound reverberating in his chest. He wasn't amused at her, of course, and he knew that she would know that. No, it was simply how once again, they were a lot alike. He knew that if anyone looked at them just on th...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

The tall Gaidin didn't hesitate to wrap an arm, strengthened from many a year in the training yards, around his wife. Her feelings over the moment practically radiated from her, though he knew he was the only one who would be able to sense it. He was perfectly happy to have it that way, as well. So ...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Whither thou she went... He would have followed her regardless, but the idea of seeing dolphins off in the water was intriguing on its own and something he would have wanted to see if he was alone. Being with Liaran--his Aes Sedai, his wife--just made it all the better. He was just two steps behind ...
