"Why, that wicked woman! I always said she had a mean mouth and a sneaking eye. Slinking away like a thief after you took her in. She'd be starving by a road, if not for you. No gratitude at all!"

Setting: Rebel Aes Sedai camp


Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Egwene al'Vere is meeting with Siuan Sanche and Sheriam Bayanar. She decides her army needs to pause for a day but Sheriam believes they should pause for a longer time. Chesa, Egwene's maid, makes comments supposedly to herself but meant as advice to Egwene. These offhand comments also unsettle Sheriam, which gives Egwene an edge. While reading reports, Egwene wonders where Logain Ablar has gone since she arranged for him to escape from Aes Sedai captivity.

Egwene puts on the a'dam bracelet that connects her to Moghedien, known to others as Marigan. Egwene forces Sheriam to admit that ten sisters, two from each Ajah except Blue and Red, were sent back to the Tower to spread rumors that the Red Ajah arranged for Logain to be proclaimed as a False Dragon.

Egwene feels a stab of pain through the a'dam bracelet, realizing that a man has channeled to remove the necklace that Marigan wears. Egwene excuses herself and then hurries to Marigan's tent only to find her gone.[1]
