Setting: White Tower

Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Egwene steps out of the third arch. Sheriam immediately delves her to make sure everything is alright. The Twisted stone ring Egwene brought with her set up a resonance with the Silver arches that almost prevented her from being able to return from the last test. Siuan completes the ceremony and announces that Egwene is now an Accepted. Elaida is still displeased with Egwene and says she is a wilder at heart and will never have a proper place in the White Tower. In the hall, she questions Alanna about the Green Ajah, and the Aes Sedai is incredibly pleased. She says that the Green Ajah stands ready to do battle at Tarmon Gai'don. Alanna also volunteers to share in Egwene's punishments for failing to halt the testing. The Amyrlin allows her a visit to Sheriam for punishment, but will not allow her to do chores in the kitchen.

Egwene does not want to be alone after the trials of her test and so heads to Nynaeve's room. Elayne is there also and has been crying since she also just took the test. Nynaeve's eyes are damp. Egwene joins them to let out her emotions with her friends.
