Berra comes in dressed in her lighter, leather armour today. “Need a strap-mate?” She asks.

“Please,” Varanis says looking frustrated. “I can’t seem to make it work this morning.”

“Freezeday,” Berra says. “Your fingers are cold.” She has not felt Varanis’ hands. It’s a bit of folk wisdom. “Relax shoulders.” Kneeling, she pays attention to the lower straps first.

Show talk of gifts and songs

On Freezeday, they have her running through a series of sword drills, several of which are familiar from Berra’s lessons. While most of what she is asked to do uses her rapier, they also have her work through the drills with broadsword. The morning goes smoothly. The afternoon calls for a return to meditation and this does not go well. She struggles to focus. Kneeling for hours with her sword laid bare across her thighs, in a cool, dark room in the depths of the Humakti Temple, she nods off.3Passed rapier and broadsword. Fumbled meditate.

They make her run up and down the stairs until it feels like her legs won’t support her anymore. Then she is directed to a cold bath and a return to meditation. This time she manages it, in spite of her shivering.

When she gets back to House Saicaie, there’s a second songbird waiting. The cage is delivered to her room. When the two meet they start a wonderful duet.
