Egwene and Nynaeve arrive at Nynaeve's room. Elayne is there with Gawyn and Galad. They are quizzing her about where the girls were. Gawyn says Queen Morgase told them to look after Elayne and he would rather have Coulin, the Master of Arms, mad at him than Morgase. They know Elayne was in trouble with Sheriam because she has been crying and will not sit down! Nynaeve tells the men that she will report them to Coulin if they do not leave so they depart. Galad is maybe a year younger than Nynaeve. Elayne tells Egwene that Gawyn is in love with her, but will not show it because Galad likes her, too, and he saved Gawyn's life when he was young. Nynaeve tells Elayne about Siuan's orders to hunt the Black Ajah and about the attempt on their lives with the Gray Man because she fears Elayne will be in as much danger as they are. Elayne says queens of Andor ride to battle. Seven hundred years ago at the Battle of Cuallin Dhen the Andorans were being routed by the Tairens, but Queen Modrellein led a charge that turned the tide. She will join them. Nynaeve thinks Siuan may let Mat die for her own purposes. She says she will try to Heal Mat herself. The door bangs open and Elaida enters.
