One can't count days in the Summer Country. Bran tried to keep track of the passing of time, but after the third time he lost count, he gave up.

That said, Bran is beginning to feel that he has been here for far too long. This morning, he's escaped the business waiting for him in Arthur's office, the great hall and the throne room, and gone to pace up and down the shore where Pridwen rests.

All things considered, it does not take her as long to find him as it might have, for Moiraine has silently made it her business to keep track of Bran's habits and usual schedule.

As she glides down the path leading to the water, the Aes Sedai spares one brief second to be grateful that these docks are so very different from those of Cairhien.

She pauses at the edge of the shore, watching Bran as he paces. There is nothing of impatience in her manner or expression, but dark eyes are slightly narrowed with concern as she assesses him.

"One might hope so," she murmurs, watching him. "Good morning, then, Bran."

A pause.

"How are matters with you?"

"Were it not, I suspect we would notice," she observes calmly. "And yet my question stands."

She nods, very slightly.

"Would you allow that I make us private?"

She inclines her head to him, then opens herself to saidar.

Here in the Summer Country, the golden aura about her is not as visible as it is in Milliways, nor is the weave of white and blue threads that flashes from her fingertips and wreathes into a large dome about them-- although it may be sensed by some.

The Aes Sedai ties off the weave and releases the True Source, saying,

"We may now be neither seen nor heard; I will know if someone tries, I think. To a passer-by, this area shall appear as if the shore were merely lacking our presence."

"You may think of it as a bending, if you prefer," she tells him. "If they are truly seeking you out of need, I believe that they should be able to find you, yes."

"I realize that it must seem that way," the Aes Sedai murmurs, even as she glides across the shore toward him. "But why do you say it?"

Gracefully, without apparent thought for the state of her silk gown, Moiraine sinks to the ground beside him.

"You must not let it overwhelm you, Bran," she tells him, and although the Aes Sedai's voice is very kind, it is still firm. "You must not. It is a delicate balance to strike, and one that perhaps becomes more difficult with time-- but it can be managed."

And there is no one else, she does not say. There is no need to.

"Would you like me to seek what information I may find in Milliways, regarding how matters stand in Fionavar?"

"Then I shall."

A pause, and her gaze remains steady upon him.

"I do not need to tell you that if you fail, we are all lost."

The pause before she replies is a little longer than it should be, perhaps, but then she shrugs and speaks lightly.

"It may be only that I consider myself that closely allied to you, Bran."

"You are not telling me anything I do not already know, Bran," she says steadily, meeting his gaze with no evasion.

"Better we see that you do not fail, do you not think?" she replies.

Moiraine appears perfectly serene and untroubled-- and utterly without doubt.

"Then you are learning," the Aes Sedai tells him, tranquilly. "Not everyone can discern such subtleties of speech, but it is a skill that will be invaluable for you."

There is a pause, and then Moiraine smiles faintly.

"I do not think it likely you can break the Oath by which I am bound, but..."

She shrugs.

"Do not let it trouble you, in this case, Bran. It is only an echo, if you will, of another place and time. It is even almost expected, or should have been."

"Do not be," she says and her words are both clear and certain. "I am not."

She remains seated, looking up at him. Sunlight sparks from the blue jewel of the kesiera on her forehead.

"I know," Moiraine says.

She allows him to assist her to her feet, and smiles at him.

"You have already done far more than you know, Bran."

"It is," the Aes Sedai assures him, quietly.

"You may be certain of that."
