With her head lowered, Alana bows down to one knee and respectfully takes the blade from him. "Thank you...you are obviously a far more skilled warrior than I thought; certainly more skilled than I. As for who is my stregth, I suppose I can only answer that by telling you that my family was my strength, but now I wish only to serve the chosen; as my family was meant to do, whatever that may mean."
With that she sheathes her sword, giving another bow before standing, her head still lowered. "But...if you do not find me worthy to serve her directly, I would like to serve you; if you so choose to allow me to serve you that is."
