Avalyn listened to the sister whom she knew was really sitting only a few steps away from her and made small nods here and there to show her agreement. Her gaze turned to Elaine when she spoke and Avalyn tilted her head. “I know of one in the tower for whom I can vouch. I am hoping that he will be ready as promised, but otherwise there will be no sword escort from the Tower for Miriel and I.  I can defend myself well enough, but I know the value of a good swordsman.” She was a Green, after all; a bondless Green but still…

Although the questions had been aimed at herself and at Miriel, Avalyn waited for the different comments to be tossed about before she made her own suggestion. Tar Valon was the city that was central to everything, but it was also dangerous to bring so many of their allies so close to a woman who would take such pride in stopping two rebels in their tracks, scoring further points in favor of the Dark One. And capturing one of the Aiel who ventured on this side of the wall to boot. No, anywhere near Tar Valon would be a very bad tactical move.

I am strong enough to Gate, but lack the practice. I should be able to get Miriel and I, as well as our escort, close to Caemlyn. We could join together at The Queen’s Blessing to regroup, share more information, and after a good night’s rest, make the journey north. It is halfway between Salidar and Tar Valon…” Avalyn suggested and then waited to hear what others had to say about this.

Elaine had been listening carefully. "Avalyn, is that Robert Laurel you are thinking of? He's one of Gareth Byrne's deputy commanders now." He was the only man in the Guard who was her match with a sword, and he was a better rider.

"Blood and bloody ashes. Stop mooning over the man and bond him girl." Miriel swore under her breath, more a thought than anything else as her eyes fell on Avalyn in the grey light. Then shaking her head she spoke to Elaine. "Nay lass, he be someone else a little closer." A slight eye roll followed with her last words, her senses told her this was being drawn out far too long, endangering them all the more. "Very well then. We shall see you all at the Queen's Blessing before sunrise. I suggest that if you can source it, there is an empty field unused to the west of the Whitebridge Gate. Avalyn, we must go. Good luck to all of us."

 Sitting up straighter than a pike, Amys knitted her brows in concentration. As the strongest here she could feel and perhaps see things the other channelers may not, or dismiss as an anomaly; for even here her senses were heightened. Something or someone was not too far away from them, or someone was trying to enter the dream world, someone dangerous.

 "Agreed. The task is yours to take, Avalyn Sedai, Miriel, I wish you luck and safe journeys. As I understand even moving about the Tower these days is fraught with risk." Her head swiveled slowly to Leane, Corese and Elaine. "Alas Leane you are needed by Egwene, but...." A finger lifted to her daughter and the Guardswoman. "...you two will leave the moment we return with whatever you can carry on your backs."

 There was no argument, all Leane and Corese could do was simply nod as a way of obeying.

Avalyn gave Elaine an odd look, unsure how ‘one swordsman of the Tower’ could translate into ‘one of Garreth Byrne’s deputy companion’ in any shape or form. Maybe the man from Byrne’s company was tower trained? The thought was quickly dismissed to the profit of what was said that may be more important than a momentary confusion regarding the identity of the young man whom she absolutely trusted not to be an agent of the dark.

He’s far more suited for you than for me, dear friend. He likes to… meddle, like you Blues do, about as much as he likes the sword.” She teased about as softly as Miriel’s comment had been muttered. Avalyn heard the sitter give the signal that it was time for them to depart, and she couldn’t agree more. “May the Light shine on us all.” Avalyn answered to her sister’s wish for good luck. With a polite bow, she winked out of the dream. 

There was a moment, after all was said and done, after all the women had winked out of the dream where everything in this part of Tel’aran’rhiod was still. Suddenly, the quiet stillness was broken by a laughter that was not completely sane, nor completely human…

The two of them dropped back into the real world in an instant and Elaine turned to face Amys. "Sorry, Amys, but it's not as simple as that. Two women, one of them an Aiel, traveling alone to Andor will have a target painted on their backs. We need a cover story, and traveling companions we can hide among. And," she turned to Corese, "she cannot travel as an Aiel. Especially a Maiden of the Spear." She smiled maliciously. "She would probably put on a good performance as a nobleman's spoiled daughter traveling by carriage."
