TGH: Chapter 40
Egwene POV - Egwene leads Bela through the Waygate followed by Liandrin, Nynaeve, Elayne and Min. There are fifty soldiers waiting. Liandrin approaches High Lady Suroth. They have not met before and clearly dislike each other, but they serve the same master.1 Liandrin says she brought the two that Suroth was expecting as well as the Daughter-Heir of Andor. Suroth says she has to get back before Turak misses her. A soldier, Elbar, grabs Min and Elayne while a sul'dam, Renna, collars Egwene. Min slashes Elbar's hand allowing Elayne to escape. Nynaeve escapes as well. Renna begins "educating" Egwene. Suroth is supposed to take Egwene and Nynaeve to Seanchan but she does not know why. Liandrin returns through the Waygate. Another damane is pretty, dark-haired and in her middle years.2 Another sul'dam, Alwhin, is much harsher than Renna. Renna tells Egwene about how Luthair Paendrag faced the Armies of the Night which included Aes Sedai. The first a'dam was made for Luthair Paendrag by Deain who was then collared herself. If a man wears the bracelet, both the man and the damane may die screaming.3 They ride back toward Falme.
Nynaeve POV - Nynaeve blasts her way free and escapes. Later, she meets Elayne. Elayne thinks she is a failure for running, but Nynaeve tells her to stop being stupid. Elayne thinks Nynaeve sounds like Lini. Nynaeve heard Suroth mention Falme so they head west. Elayne is worried about Rand still being in danger, but Nynaeve thinks Rand is probably safe back in Fal Dara.
