[An hour or two after this:]

Bran has found a plain chamber on the ground floor of the castle, with a window that faces a long descending hillside and then the wide blueness of the sea. He rests his hands on the cool stone of the wall, but otherwise he stands straight, unthinkingly regal, as he thinks through the speech he must give this evening.

A white and gold scabbard, holding the crystal sword Eirias, is belted to Bran's trousers.

When the Summer Country murmurs into his mind that someone has entered the land, Bran startles, but he realises it is Moiraine and relaxes almost at once.

It does not take her all that long, as it happens, to encounter the increased awareness on the part of many of the Summer Country's inhabitants.

Very soon after that, she is gliding swiftly along the hallways, in search of the land's regent.

(Some might wonder at how quickly it is that she finds him, in truth.)

"Bran." Moiraine's tone is not quite sharp, but the concern is evident. "Are you well?"

"So it would appear."

The Aes Sedai is studying him very carefully indeed.

"Do you wish to speak of it?"

"I am glad to hear that, of course-- although if I may be straightforward about matters, you do not look particularly well, either."

Her gaze drops to the hilt of the familiar sword at his side and remains there for a long moment before she meets his eyes again.

"What has happened?"

Dark eyes flash with temper, but aside from that there is no sign of her anger-- ruthlessly, instantly controlled.

"How could he have been directed here?"

"No, one would not expect that he would," she murmurs, even as a shadow flickers through the dark eyes and is gone.

"It is difficult to imagine what would lead him, or any of them, perhaps, to do so; therefore it seems it must have been another way that was found."

She is thinking quickly, assessing, and the possibilities... well, they are disconcerting, to say the least.

Dark eyes meet golden ones, and the Aes Sedai inclines her head to him in acquiescence.

"I shall, if you wish it so."

His alarm is clear, and an immediate, subtle tension races through the Aes Sedai as she reacts to it.

"Bran. What is it?"

Dark eyes widen in shock, and for several seconds Moiraine stares at him in silence.

"You have reclaimed your heritage," she says, at last. "Your birthright, that which you had renounced."

"I doubt that," Moiraine murmurs, and her gaze upon him is rather assessing, now.

"The Wheel weaves, and all things are part of the Pattern."

Strangely, Moiraine hesitates, then shakes her head.

"I did not say it was not your choice to make, Bran-- although there are some few whose choices are more constrained by the Pattern than others, as it weaves around them. But I am certain that there is a reason for it, all the same."

"Or at the very least, a longer term than you may once have expected," she amends, smoothly.

There is no sign of her racing thoughts visible in her outward composure.

"This change-- although unexpected, as you have said-- is something of a strength, where strength is greatly needed."

The Aes Sedai's eyes narrow as she studies him.

"And the more so, I think, if you do not rest now," Moiraine informs him. "Can you do so unaided?"

"I would prefer that it not be necessary," she replies.

It is a clear answer, as it happens. Clear enough. Quietly, Moiraine adds,

"Light illumine and protect you, Bran. Rest. I shall do what I may here, then seek answers where they might be found."
