! __Min__ POV

[Caraline|Caraline Damodred] warns [Rand|Rand alThor] there are seven [Aes Sedai] in the tent. Four are [Red|Red Ajah] and are on their way to [Tar Valon] from the south.[1] [Toram Riatin] is vindictive. Once he pushed his friend [Derowin] down stairs because he rode his horse. They start to fight and appear very even. Suddenly a thick fog[2] snatches away the tent and, while everyone looks around, [Toram Riatin] smashes [Rand|Rand alThor] in the side. The fog snatches away a [Red|Red Ajah] [Aes Sedai]. [Toram Riatin] thinks [Rand|Rand alThor] is attacking them. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] is with [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] of the [Yellow Ajah] and [Niande|Niande Moorwyn] of the [Gray Ajah]. [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] wishes they had brought their [Warder]; hers is [Roshan]. There are lots of dead. When the fog nears a woman, [Rand|Rand alThor] [balefires|Weaves] it. Realizing who [Rand|Rand alThor] really is, [Toram Riatin] runs off, but [Darlin|Darlin Sisnera] does not. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] slaps [Rand|Rand alThor] and tells him never to do that again. He tells her [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon] was real. [Fain|Padan Fain] leaps out of the fog.[2] [Min|Min Farshaw] throws her knife at him but misses and he slices [Rand|Rand alThor] with the [ruby dagger|Ruby Dagger]. [Darlin|Darlin Sisnera] lunges at [Fain|Padan Fain], but he runs off. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] tries to [Heal|Weaves#h] [Rand|Rand alThor], but she is not very good at it. [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] does her best and helps. [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] says the old scar and the new wound are both full of evil, but different kinds. She is the best [Healer|Weaves#h] of all [Aes Sedai]. 

They all scramble through the fog, [Darlin|Darlin Sisnera] carrying [Rand|Rand alThor]. They come out five miles south of [Cairhien|Cairhien (City)]. A farmer, [Ander Tol], gives them a ride. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] says to take them to [Arilyn|Arilyn Dhulaine]'s. [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] and [Corele|Corele Hovian] are the best [Healers|Weaves#h]. [Min|Min Farshaw] says no; go to the [Sun Palace]. If [Rand|Rand alThor] wakes with strange [Aes Sedai] again... [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] agrees. In the wagon [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] forces her to tell what happened to [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Caraline|Caraline Damodred] and [Darlin|Darlin Sisnera] are stunned. [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] and [Niande|Niande Moorwyn] puke at idea that three sisters were [stilled|stilling]. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] says, "Do not be afraid, boy. They made my task harder, and yours, but I will not hurt you more than I must." 

They all go to the palace. Once they arrive [Caraline|Caraline Damodred] and [Darlin|Darlin Sisnera] disappear.[3] [Rand|Rand alThor] is shuffled into bed. [Kiruna|Kiruna Nachiman] and [Bera|Bera Harkin] show up. [Amys] shows up and sends them off - [Kiruna|Kiruna Nachiman] back to [Sorilea]. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] likes [Amys] and wants to meet [Sorilea]. [Dashiva|OsanGar], [Flinn|Damer Flinn], [Narishma|Jahar Narishma] show up. [Dashiva|OsanGar] calls for [Flinn|Damer Flinn]. [Dashiva|OsanGar] makes guttural sound and [Flinn|Damer Flinn] asks if he sees something. [Dashiva|OsanGar] says he has no [Talent|Weaves] for [Healing|Weaves#h]; he just suggested that [Flinn|Damer Flinn] learn. [Dashiva|OsanGar] says, "If he dies. . . ," talks to himself and makes a sound half sob half bitter laugh.[4] [Flinn|Damer Flinn] was in the [Queen's Guards|Caemlyn] for forty years. He saw lots of wounds. That is why he went to the [Black Tower]. At [Dashiva|OsanGar]'s suggestion, the [M'Hael|Mazrim Taim] taught him [Healing|Weaves#h], a rough kind that hurts. While talking to [Dashiva|OsanGar], he wondered why it is all the same, whether a broken bone or a cold. He finishes with [Rand|Rand alThor]. He did not cure him, but sealed off the two evils.[5] Maybe they will kill off each other. [Samitsu|Samitsu Tamagowa] is astounded and wants [Flinn|Damer Flinn] to teach her. [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin], [Amys] and [Dashiva|OsanGar] all have unreadable auras dancing around them. [Min|Min Farshaw] curls up on the bed with [Rand|Rand alThor].
