! __Rand__ POV

It is a twelve day trip from [Imre Stand] to [Cold Rocks] Hold. [Aviendha] walks as [Rand|Rand alThor] rides [Jeade'en|JeadeEn (Rand)]. She teaches him about denizens of the [Aiel Waste] such as the [two-step|Aiel Waste] and the %%ot [gara|Aiel Waste]%%. She continues to try to teach him about [Aiel] customs. [Rand|Rand alThor] has a hard time with the idea that [Rhuarc] is clan chief but his wife, [Lian|Lian (Aiel)], is roofmistress of [Cold Rocks] Hold.

[Kadere|Hadnan Kadere] and [Isendre] watch him from their wagons. This still angers [Aviendha] who continuously points out the merits of [Elayne|Elayne Trakand]. [Bair] finally told him that [Aviendha] did not visit the [glass columns] so [Rand|Rand alThor] is at a loss as to why she seems to hate him. [Rand|Rand alThor] is glad [Min|Min Farshaw] is safe in the [White Tower].[1] [Egwene|Egwene alVere] walks as often as she rides [Mist]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] spends her time with the [Wise Ones|Aiel] or badgering [Rand|Rand alThor] about his plans. Each evening he practices swords with [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] and spears with [Rhuarc]. [Natael|Asmodean] often questions him about being the [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor] and [Rand|Rand alThor] replies fatalistically with no thought of glory.[2] [Natael|Asmodean] also spends a lot of time with the [Shaido].[3] 

The [Wise Ones|Aiel] are teaching [Aviendha] to [channel|True Source]. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] gambles with the peddlers and tries to make time with [Isendre]. [Keille|Lanfear] offers to sell [Isendre] to [Mat|Matrim Cauthon], then tells him that few men have ever refused an offer from her once, much less twice.[4] Finally [Rhuarc] announces that they are at [Cold Rocks] Hold.
