! __Elayne__ POV

[Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] search the [Rahad]. They split up, [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Aviendha] going together, so they could cover more ground. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is sure the building was six stories. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] thinks it was five.[3] The four of them are disguised with [Illusion|Weaves], a complicated weave of [Air|One Power] and [Fire|One Power], so they look [Ebou Dari|Ebou Dar]. They also have their ability to [channel|True Source] masked by an even more complex weave of [Spirit|One Power] so they could walk right by [Merilille|Merilille Ceandevin] without her noticing. 

[Vandene|Vandene Namelle] and [Adeleas|Adeleas Namelle] are also in the [Rahad]. They have been searching for eleven days. They witness a knife fight. A man named [Baris] mortally wounds the other fellow, [Masic]. A woman wearing a red belt comes over and tries to help [Masic]. To [Elayne|Elayne Trakand]'s surprise, the woman [channels|True Source] trying to [Heal|Weaves] him, but he is too badly hurt. Her name is [Asra]. She is too weak in the [One Power] to have even made [Accepted]. After the woman walks off, [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] and [Nalesean|Nalesean Aldiaya] walk by and, of course, have no idea who they are. [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] thinks [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] is the more dangerous of the two, a [N'Shar|Birgitte Trahelion] in [Mameris|Birgitte Trahelion].[4] They continue searching. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] hopes [Egwene|Egwene alVere] found a solution.[5]

! __Egwene__ POV

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] is talking with [Logain|Logain Ablar] in his tent. Six [Aes Sedai] shield him while two [Warder] stand guard outside. She asks him what he thinks about [Rand|Rand alThor]'s amnesty. He angrily replies that he wishes he were there.  He has [channeled|True Source] for six years. She leaves and walks through the tents of the camp. They have been moving north through [Altara] for sixteen days. [Bryne|Gareth Bryne]'s camp surrounds the [Aes Sedai] camp. [Talmanes|Talmanes Delovinde] keeps the [Band of the Red Hand] camp about ten miles away. The two armies are already serving part of her plan suggested by [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] and [Leane|Leane Sharif]. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] is playing off the presence of the two armies to get the local nobles to swear fealty to her. After dinner, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] retires to her tent, sends [Chesa] away, and goes to sleep.

In %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%%, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] meets [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] in the [Little Tower|Salidar]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] has the original [twisted ring]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] uses one of her own making. They report that they still have not found the weather %%ot [ter'angreal|Angreal]%%. [Tylin|Tylin Quintara] has made them welcome and they claim that they are also making use of [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]. They tried using [Need|TelAranRhiod] again but it does not work. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] met with [Bair] and [Melaine] a few days ago. They did not know what the problem was, as they never heard of anyone trying to use [Need|TelAranRhiod] twice for the same thing. A %%ot [motai|Aiel Waste Creatures]%% is a tasty grub found in the [Aiel Waste]. [Amys] will not teach [Egwene|Egwene alVere] any more. [Melaine] is still so delighted over her pregnancy that she says [Egwene|Egwene alVere] has no %%ot [toh|Aiel]%% to her for lying. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] tells [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] that [Rand|Rand alThor] is in [Cairhien|Cairhien (City)].[6] The [Wise Ones|Aiel] are angry over the [Aes Sedai]; [Sorilea] thinks they deserve a beating. She also tells them that [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] is in [Cairhien|Cairhien (City)] and that he is married to [Faile|Zarine Bashere]. [Loial] and [Min|Min Farshaw] are also there. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] asks [Egwene|Egwene alVere] to pass a message to [Min|Min Farshaw] through the [Wise Ones|Aiel], that she hopes [Min|Min Farshaw] will come to like [Aviendha]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] leaves, then [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] asks [Egwene|Egwene alVere] about [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran]. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] knows nothing. They both leave.

When [Egwene|Egwene alVere] wakes, [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] is there. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] confirms her order to arrange for [Logain|Logain Ablar] to escape. Too many, including [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar], [Carlinya], [Lelaine|Lelaine Akashi] and [Romanda|Romanda Cassin], want him [gentled|stilling]. [Delana|Delana Mosalaine] wants him killed. She tells [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] to make sure [Logain|Logain Ablar] does not hurt anyone in his escape.
