The entire Grey Tower, from the Amyrlin Seat down to the scullery maids, have been granted a free day to celebrate Sunday. Hama Valon is hosting a traditional Two Rivers observance of the holiday with various competitions, feasting, and merriment, and a traveling show has set up camp just outside the city walls in hopes that the revelers will be free with their coin.
Students are reminded that even though it is a free day, they are expected to adhere to all rules, particularly those regarding proper conduct, and to tidy up after themselves lest they find their usual chores doubled on the morrow. Novices, Soldiers, and drin'far'ji may attend the celebration, in uniform, but may not stray into the city, enter the traveling show without permission, or otherwise evade supervision.
Thoia looked from Jac to Seira, then down to their hands. Oh, so he has found a pretty girl. Good for him. Thoia hoped that she had cheered up a bit since the last time they had met, especially for Jac. She looked again at Seira as she poke with a forced smile. Was she still angry at Thoia? Probably, she thought. She had been quite blunt with the woman, though she didn't think that it had been unwarranted. The girl needed some sense knocked into her, and maybe her little tirade had helped? She did seem a little better, talking to people now. She would give Seira the benefit of the doubt, for Jac's sake.
"Yes, we've met," she said, her voice bubbly and kind. "But, I think a lot has changed from that day. How have you been? You look good!" She smiled. She had no reason to piss off the Drin.
She looked back toward Jac, and leaned in close to whisper to him, "She's cute, Jac! Well done!" Then she winked, then backed away to smile at Seira again. Maybe this festival won't be so bad after all. If only Yani would show up.
