2 Saven 891 NE

They summoned me for my test. The hundred weaves are a useless joke and they didn’t do a very good job of distracting me and I passed. It was easy. Now, I have to spend the night in quiet contemplation or whatever, but I know what I want. I decided to go with Blue. I don’t want to have to go chase men when I’m told to plus, I might want a Warder someday, so I’ll just get a good night’s sleep instead of contemplating.

3 Saven 891 NE

It’s done. I chose the Blue and have my new shawl. They gave me a new room in the Blue quarters, and left me a few blue dresses to wear. At least they’re not white. I had a meeting with the First Selector so she could tell me about how things work in the Tower and then someone grabbed me to help with some silly project. I wasn’t really paying attention. There were also a couple of people giving me weird looks. I’m not sure what that’s about, but I mean to find out.

21 Choren 891 NE

I found a note on my pillow after breakfast this morning. It was most odd, but I decided to see what it was all about. I found some Aes Sedai meeting in some storage room or something. They told me they could help me and I could become more powerful and live a life of power and luxury. Finally. This is what I had been waiting for. All I have to do for them is swear to serve the Dark One and follow directions when they’re given to me. I can handle that, so I said yes. They told me I would have to stand before the Supreme Council to swear my new oath and be freed from the old one. Sounds good to me. These new oaths make my skin feel tight.

15 Shaldine 891 NE

It’s done. I am now a member of the Black Ajah. I have been placed in a Heart. Berylla is one and a fellow Blue. The third in our Heart is Amico, a Yellow. We also all get to know the name of one sister outside out Heart, and mine is Duhara, a Red. Life in the Tower just got much more interesting.
