"Verin, you are worrying about a lionfish out in the Sea of Storms, while here and now the silverpike are chewing our nets to shreds."

Setting: White Tower, Tar Valon

Point of view: Siuan Sanche

The Amyrlin paced her quarters, waiting for Verin to arrive and pondering contingencies she has prepared for various events that might happen.  Leane, the keeper of the seals, came into the room, announcing Verin and then leaves.  Verin gives news of what has been happening with Rand.  There are no more false dragons, Siuan says. There was a vision in the sky over the battlefields where both were winning and both were unhorsed and knocked unconscious. Mazrim Taim was captured and another false dragon was executed.  Verin took a horn out of her bag, the Horn of Valere.  The Amyrlin is surprised to see it here.  It was supposed to be with Rand al’Thor but it was Mat that blew the Horn. Mat is sick and needs to be healed and there is silent consideration on whether to heal him in time.  The Amyrlin says they can hide the Horn for now.  Verin says they need to deal with the Seanchan, who use the Power as a weapon.  Siuan decides that since the Seanchan were chased away from Falme, there are more important issues to deal with. Verin is asked to give details on what Nynaeve, Egwene and Elayne have been doing.
