Setting: Fal Dara, Shienar
Point of view: Omni

The Wind blows from the Mountains of Dhoom through the Great Blight to the fortress-city of Fal Dara in Shienar. The trees have new growth, spring was late in coming.

Point of view: Rand al'Thor

Rand al'Thor and Lan Mandragoran are practicing sword fighting. The wind blows so strongly at Rand that he is unable to back away from a thrust by Lan. Lan's practice sword shatters and injures Rand. This is the first known instance of a Bubble of evil. Rand learns from Lan that his Heron-mark sword is power wrought, just like Lan's.

Lan questions Rand on why he hasn't left Fal Dara when he had said he was going to leave a month ago. Rand isn't really sure, but he wants to be near his friends Mat Cauthon and Perrin Aybara as well as Egwene al'Vere which has made him put off leaving.

With trumpets blaring, drums beating and banners waving, a large group approaches Fal Dara. Lan says it is the Amyrlin Seat and that Rand should have been gone a week already.
