Now even rest wasnt rest, the old place in Tar was back, twice this last week, she had thougth going too the fortress at least she would be able too rest up, get back in buisnis and sort through her nettworks. She yawned, she was tired, this had too end, but how she had spent centuries searching for answers, and she had found none. She gathered saidar, focused and made a small flame floating in the air, looking at it calmed her let her sort her mind.
She closed her eyes and let saidar go, darkness setled around her, her mind swirled, and she opened her eyes slowly looking out the window at the bligth. There was one place she had not tried, something newly discovered though not thougth about because of the circumstances. The guy, another dreamwalker on their side who seemed too know his way in the world of dreams, who know what he may know, but how too gain the knowledge from him. She pushed back the chair and stood up, pacing like a cat back and forth, something about him made her vary, and she learned too trust her gut after the length of life she walked through.
Well then one issue at a time, first she would have too find him, so back too bed, and hope she ended up in the dream she knew. She walked determined against the chair in the corner, set wards throughout the room, then setled back and let her eyes close. She shivered as she steped into Tel'aran'rhiod, it was as it should be. She made herself at home at first, building up curage despite herself, she hated it, she despised it, and she wasnt going to stand for it, she jumped too where the seanchan had been changing things in the real world, there was no one there. She walked through towns, nothing, looking for clues as she went till she finaly was face too face with the town she been in, the rooms, the cells, it made the hair stand in her neck....nothing.
She opened her eyes and looked out over her room, it was time for sleep, proper sleep, there was classes tomorow. As day dawned she felt sorry for any student about too mess up, she was not in mood, the nigth had been stressfull, and she was on edge, knowing tonigth she would have to go back and continue the search. She didnt become more pleasant too be around as the week progressed, and as the month was over and she was done with her classes, she had been through a fair amount of the books she already read many a time in the libary.
She was reading through an old diary, useless, she knew it, she knew she done her studies on this properly. Useless, there was one thing left to do, one thing even she knew how too respect and be carefull with, but the most effective one, one she hadnt tried in years. Well so be it, she already seen it again, she wasnt sure, normally it would be dacades between runing into the place, so why was she stumbling in there now more frequently, before she could ignore it, but with the world changing there just was no ignoring it.
She laid down, checked her wards a last time and closed her eyes, focusing on the face as best she could remember it, she would jump without controll, nothing, nothing at all, she walked the dream trying from different places, nothing. The next nigth nothing, she slept and ate during daytime, and hunted during nigths, nothing, she changed it out and hunted at day, nothing. M'bela looked out at the bligth and snarled in her troath, the cat laying on the bookshelf looked up at her, then went back too sleep. It had been a week, but now her mind was setled, all reservations was over, she was not going to give up till she had some answers. She setled down in the chair, her fingers tapping the side, setled back and went too sleep and woke up...in the blasted darkness, oh great. Part of her wanted too scream, someone would die when she woke up she swore silently, she had tried many enough places too figure it out, everytime it ended up out of her hands in some nigthmarish story going everywhich way out of her controll. This was pointless, she made herself ready too wake up, the one thing she managed too figure out how to do, when the neck hair prickled "The void is a dangerous place to be if you don't know what you're doing."
