Sadira stood in the middle of the living room of their Aes Sedai/Gaidin combined quarters. She was wearing a dress. It wasn't that this was unusual. She did wear dresses sometimes. But they were usually more utilitarian. This one was clearly mean to be...pretty, although it was still fairly simple. It was blue, of course, but the cord around her waist was grey.
She smirked at her warder. "My mother made me buy it. She said it would be good for an evening out on the town, and I suppose it's as good a time as any to put that to the test."
Alrim and Sadira had just returned from being out of the Tower for nearly three weeks. It had not been taxing in terms of battle, but it had been in terms of emotional cost. They had been helping the refugees of a village attacked by Trollocs some weeks ago. They had been with others from the Tower, but their duties had been different.
Now that they were home, they had elected for an evening out to lighten the heart and mind...and Sadira had decided to wear the new dress.
