|Ned talks with Arya in her chambers||Arya Stark and Syrio Forel||Arya: “No that’s not me”||The first duel at the tournament”||Coming Soon!|
Ned is walking back to his chambers as he sees Arya balancing on one foot in front of a staircase.
Arya Stark: Syrio says a water dancer can stand on one toe for hours.
Eddard Stark: It’s a hard fall down these steps.
Arya Stark: Syrio says every hurt is a lesson and every lesson makes you better. Tomorrow I’m going to be chasing cats.
Eddard Stark: Cats? Syrio says…
Arya Stark: He says every swordsman should study cats. They’re quiet as shadows and as light as feathers. You have to be quick to catch them.
Eddard Stark: He’s right about that.
Arya Stark: Now that Bran’s awake will he come live with us?
Eddard Stark: He needs to get his strength back first.
Arya Stark:He wants to be a knight of the King’s Guard. He can’t be one now, can he?
Eddard Stark: No. But someday he could be Lord of a holdfast or sit on the King’s Council. Or he might raise castles like Brandon the Builder.
Arya Stark: Can I be Lord of a holdfast?
Eddard Stark: You will marry a high Lord and rule his castle. And your sons shall be knights and princes and lords.
Arya Stark: No. That’s not me.
