Tozar took her by the hand and led her into a room where a very tall Master stood up to greet them. Although the man stooped slightly, he still towered over Rhuna. His long hair and beard were a dark brown streaked with many graying hairs, and his deep-set black eyes were almost concealed by his creased and heavy brow. His appearance startled her, and she shook his hand reluctantly.
“Adopted by the Rain, I have looked forward to our meeting for a very long time,” he said sternly. Tozar excused himself and told Rhuna he would wait at the end of the hall while she became acquainted with her new teacher.
Seer of Worlds set his penetrating eyes upon Rhuna and continued to speak in an even tone. “I have frequently inquired of your progress since the revelation of using common red powder to summon general place visions more than three solar cycles past. Now we may finally discuss these matters in depth, face to face!” he said.
Rhuna felt a little nervous and explained to him that since that occasion, she had not tried summoning without her teacher’s supervision. Seer of Worlds ignored her statement and bombarded her with more questions once they were seated on soft cushion-covered benches.
“Have you succeeded in summoning without the use of any powders? Which level of element transformation have you reached? Have you projected your concentrated thought energies onto animals?”
“Animals?” asked Rhuna shocked.
“It is possible for those with special abilities,” he said in the same stern tone. “My life’s work has revealed greater depths and dimensions in the nature of Atlan powers than ever suspected, such as the intricate connections between concentrated thought processes and the summoning of the Gazing of the Waters. Hence my questioning of your level of experience. Your level of ability may be something entirely different.”
Rhuna wasn’t sure what her new teacher wanted to know, nor what he wanted to teach her. She didn’t want to tell anyone about her disturbing experiences with the Gazing of the Waters, but Seer of Worlds drew it out of her with his sharp look and direct speech.
