! __Egwene__ POV

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] is in her tent attempting to wash with soap she bought from [Hadnan Kadere]. She is angry because [Bair] refused to let them move into rooms in [Rhuidean]. A %%ot [gai'shain|Aiel]%%, [Cowinde], arrives and summons her to the [Wise Ones|Aiel]. Before going, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] tries to have a conversation with [Cowinde] but the woman is unwilling to speak about herself. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] attributes [Cowinde]'s bleak attitude to the [bleakness|MeraDin].[1] 

When proceeding to the sweat tent, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] remembers receiving segade blossoms from [Aviendha].[2] The [Wise Ones|Aiel] who are teaching [Egwene|Egwene alVere] to be a [dreamwalker|TelAranRhiod] - [Amys], [Bair] and [Melaine] - are already waiting. [Aviendha] and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] are also present. [Bair] chides [Egwene|Egwene alVere] for being slow. [Melaine] tells [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] that the [Aiel] follow [Rand|Rand alThor], not the [White Tower]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] fears that when [Rand|Rand alThor] takes the [Aiel] clans across the [Dragonwall|Spine of the World], he will cause the nations to unite against him. The [Wise Ones|Aiel] do not agree. During the discussion, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] thinks of how the [Wise Ones|Aiel] have feared the [Aes Sedai] and the [White Tower], while [Egwene|Egwene alVere] believes that they are an equal match.[3] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] leaves. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] ponders that [Sorilea] of the [Jarra|Jarra (Sept)] [Chareen] is even more strong-willed than [Bair] even though she can barely [channel|True Source]. She is [Wise One|Aiel] of [Shende] Hold. 

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] notices that [Aviendha] has been switched. She asks [Bair] about this, and the [Wise One|Aiel] replies it had been done on [Aviendha]'s request, because she lied twice that day and %%ot [toh|Aiel]%% must be met.[4] The [Wise Ones|Aiel] discuss some of the changes [Rand|Rand alThor] has brought: the clan chiefs do not listen as well as they used to, [Aiel] going to the [Tuatha'an|TuathaAn] because of the [bleakness|MeraDin]. The [Wise Ones|Aiel] want [Aviendha] to sleep in [Rand|Rand alThor]'s room. [Aviendha] does not want to, but the [Wise Ones|Aiel] put their foot down. 

[Amys] interrogates [Egwene|Egwene alVere] on her progress in [dreamwalking|TelAranRhiod]. She has not yet found [Elayne|Elayne Trakand]'s and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]'s dreams and she had an embarrassing experience when she entered [Rhuarc]'s. [Amys] instructs her to visit her dreams that night. 

[Melaine] asks [Amys] and [Bair] to approach [Dorindha|Dorindha (Roofmistress)]. She wants to marry [Dorindha|Dorindha (Roofmistress)]'s husband [Bael]. After the [Wise Ones|Aiel] have left, [Aviendha] asks [Egwene|Egwene alVere] if a wetlander woman could accept a sister-wife.[5] When they leave the sweat tent, [Bair] is waiting for them. As a punishment they have to run fifty times round the camp. While running, [Aviendha] and [Egwene|Egwene alVere] talk about [Rand|Rand alThor], [Elayne|Elayne Trakand], [Isendre], learning to use the [One Power] and %%ot [ji'e'toh|Aiel]%%. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] asked [Aviendha] to look after [Rand|Rand alThor] for [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] at the [Stone of Tear].
