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's reaction, and apparent change of attitude, startled Seira. She did her best to conceal it, though she was sure that some surprise showed on her face when Jac yanked his hand away from hers. What was his relationship to the ji'dar, she wondered, unable to discern it from their differing reactions to the moment.
She wasn't sure she understood her own reaction, either...
"I'm not entering any contests," Seira said with an almost bashful smile and shake of her head. "I'm just looking forward to the dancing, and I thought the traveling show would be fun, though have to have a chaperon and maybe a leash." She smirked, giving another shrug and letting her eyes flicker around for a moment.
