! __Perrin__ POV

[Rand|Rand alThor], wearing a plain green coat, has the wagons searched thoroughly [1]. [Kiruna|Kiruna Nachiman] and the other free [Aes Sedai] are riding in a wagon. The [Wise Ones|Aiel] made them give up their horses. [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Min|Min Farshaw] each got one.[2] [Sorilea] and [Amys] are with [Rand|Rand alThor]. The rest of the [Wise Ones|Aiel] guard the prisoner [Aes Sedai]. [Flinn|Damer Flinn] and [Grady|Jur Grady] are two of the [Dedicated|AshaMan] with [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Dashiva|OsanGar] is awkward but insolent. He does not know one end of a sword from the other.[3] 

A gateway opens and [Rand|Rand alThor] and company arrive some miles northeast of [Cairhien|Cairhien (City)]. [Dobraine|Dobraine Taborwin] leads the [Cairhienin|Cairhien (Country)]. [Rad al'Dai] and [Tell Lewin] carry [Two Rivers] banners. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] thinks about [Rand|Rand alThor] intending both [Cairhien|Cairhien (Country)] and [Andor] thrones for [Elayne|Elayne Trakand]. Most [Two Rivers] men are boys like [Tod|Tod alCaar]. The parade continues. [Rhuarc] leads the %%ot [siswai'aman|siswaiAman]%% and [Nurelle|Havien Nurelle] leads the [Winged Guard|Mayene]. [Nandera] is with [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Dashiva|OsanGar] talks to himself. [Rand|Rand alThor] says he trusts [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], [Min|Min Farshaw] and [Loial]. 

[Narishma|Jahar Narishma], an [Asha'man] [soldier|AshaMan], spots a newcomer to the southwest. [Sorilea] and [Amys] call over a dozen [Wise Ones|Aiel]. [Edarra] protests, but [Wise Ones|Aiel] [Sotarin] and [Cosain] are sent to meet her, another [Wise One|Aiel] [Feraighin]. They all come back and confer with the other [Wise Ones|Aiel]. [Nandera], [Sulin], [Rhuarc], [Gaul], [Loial], [Aram] and [Rand|Rand alThor] join them. She is there because [Bair] and [Megana] set watches. She reports that [Indirian], chief of [Codarra], wants to attack the [White Tower]. [Timolan], chief of [Miagoma], thinks [Rand|Rand alThor] betrayed them. [Mandelain] and [Janwin] are undecided. The main concern is that people will think [Aes Sedai] control [Rand|Rand alThor]. 

[Kiruna|Kiruna Nachiman], [Bera|Bera Harkin], and [Alanna|Alanna Mosvani] try to listen in on the conversation. [Colavaere|Colavaere Saighan] has been crowned. She schemed for it ever since [Galldrian|Galldrian su Riatin Rie] [Riatin|Cairhien] died. [Bain] and [Chiad] are with [Faile|Zarine Bashere]. [Berelain|Berelain sur Paendrag] is okay. [Colavaere|Colavaere Saighan] wants the [Aiel] to move south.[4] People are being killed by bubbles of evil. Three days ago [Caraline Damodred] and [Toram Riatin] came near the city and declared [Colavaere|Colavaere Saighan] a usurper. [Darlin Sisnera] and other [Tairens|Tear (Country)] joined them yesterday, camped south of city. About ten [Aes Sedai] arrived, staying with [Arilyn Dhulaine].[5] She calls [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] %%ot [Sei'cair|Perrin]%%.[6] [Rand|Rand alThor] orders the [Aes Sedai] taken to the [Aiel] tents to demonstrate that they do not control him. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] is even more worried when he hears that [Bain] and [Chiad] are with the [Maidens|Maidens of the Spear] and no longer with [Faile|Zarine Bashere]. [Loial] says he would worry about [Erith], too. [Rand|Rand alThor] gathers a group to head to [Cairhien|Cairhien (City)].
