Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.
Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.
When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.
"Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"
Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

Kel doesn't pass her probationary year. Alanna isn't pleased, and informs Jon that she won't be avoiding Kel anymore. And of course, there are ripple effects.
