Zarayne didn’t actually confirm whether she wanted Tia to find someone who knew how to Unweave. Was the ‘thank you’ Zarayne’s way of confirmation? Encouraging the Novice was likely a bad idea, but curiosity had a way of pushing people to do things they shouldn’t. If Tia could find someone to help the Novice learn while keeping her relatively safe, then so much the better, right? The Mistress of Novices likely wouldn't think so, but then what could she do to Tia?
Pushing the thoughts aside, Tia turned her attention back to the lesson at hand when Zarayne asked about the last ward. The Green sister shook her head “No, we won’t test it on Shadowspawn today, though keep in mind that vermin are often Shadowspan, and this ward will work just as well against them as it would against Trollocs. Now. . .watch.”
Tia embraced Saidar once again, moving her hands and fingers as she brought together threads of Air with slightly thicker flows of Fire, binding the two together in a way that hadn’t been done with the other Wards. Finally, she brought in threads of Spirit to anchor the other two, letting the Ward fall over the bench the Novice and Aes Sedai occupied.
“It looks more complex than it is,” Tia explained as she dropped the ward and began again, starting with Air. “You bind Air to Fire,” she continued, showing what she was doing with each step of the ward. “And once you’ve done that, you anchor them both with your thread of Spirit,” she finished, letting the ward fall into place once again. “I’ve made mine small, but you can make it as big as your strength with the One Power will allow you.”
The Aes Sedai released the Ward and nodded towards Zarayne, “Give it a go. Let’s see how you manage?”
