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.

Jac lingered near Seira as Thoia went to sign up, holding no real interest in reading a list of names for an event he had no talent in. Not that he was not interested to see how well they could shoot, but until the competition began he could not force his interest to stay on archery. Still, he smiled at Thoia as she returned, even through her brief rundown of her competition and her chances of coming out of it with a prize.
"I am sure you will represent yourself more than suitably," he said, catching the drop in mood from the Ji. Had something happened since she'd signed her name? That seemed unlikely, which meant it had been something earlier. Perhaps his cheery demeanor was rubbing the wrong way. He was about to stamp it down when she mentioned the traveling show. His feet followed immediately, before he could pause to think.
