! __Elayne__ POV

[Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] are at [The Wandering Woman] the next morning to apologize. [Aviendha] and [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] went to watch [Carridin|Jaichim Carridin] in their [Illusion|Weaves#i] disguises. They get directions to [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]'s room from an angry serving girl.[1] [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is fascinated with [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]'s [foxhead medallion|Foxhead Medallion] and is determined to figure it out. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] thinks it is [Nerim] at first. They apologize, promise not to belittle him or give him orders and to listen to his advice. They say he can provide guards for them. He grabs his head muttering about the dice. They tell him about the [Bowl of the Winds] and that it is in the [Rahad]. They ask him to move into the palace and he agrees. He mutters that the dice have stopped.[2] [Tylin|Tylin Quintara] has rooms picked out for him. He refuses [Healing|Weaves] from [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara], but thanks them for asking. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is confused by his behavior. All she knows of men is [Rand|Rand alThor] and what [Lini|Lini Eltring] and [Morgase|Morgase Trakand] taught her.

As they leave, they run into [Setalle Anan]. She thinks they are [White Tower] runaways or [wilders|Wilder]. She knows about [channeling|True Source], penance, slowing and the history of the [White Tower].[3] [Setalle|Setalle Anan] offers to take them to some women[4] instead of turning them into the [Aes Sedai] because she likes [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]. She thinks there are at least fifty of them in the [Circle|Kin]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] tells her they were told to leave the [Tower|White Tower].[5] She is taking them to [Reanne Corly].
