! __Egwene__ POV

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] wonders how [Rand|Rand alThor] knows that she is in [Salidar] and knows [Traveling|Weaves#t].[1] None of them are sweating; [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] finally taught them the trick which is just a special way of concentrating. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] thinks the [Band of the Red Hand] might be just the gift she needs.[2] [Chesa] has been putting cushions on her chair even though after two days in [Salidar] she does not really need them any longer. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] gets angry and kicks [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] threatens her and clearly scares her.[3] [Egwene|Egwene alVere] tells him that he is in trouble. [Gareth Bryne]'s men will think his army is [Dragonsworn]. She warns him to keep his mouth shut and walk small, then dismisses him. As he leaves, [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] asks if [Thom|Thom Merrilin] is around.[4] 

The [Warder] reported that [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]'s band is now six or seven thousand. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] explains her plan to [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]. She thinks that [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] made a promise to [Rand|Rand alThor] so he will have to stay near [Elayne|Elayne Trakand]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] really wants to study the mysterious %%ot [ter'angreal|Angreal]%% that [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] used. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] saw her flows just melt away when they touched him. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] now plan to join [Merilille|Merilille Ceandevin] in [Ebou Dar]. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] will send [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] along with them. [Thom|Thom Merrilin], [Juilin|Juilin Sandar] and [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] will go as well. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] is convinced that [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] is the real [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion], but she still cannot talk about it with [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] because of their promise. 

[Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] knocks and enters. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] goes to find [Aviendha]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] goes to talk with [Janya|Janya Frende] about lost [Talents|Weaves]. They have gotten little help on that from [Moghedien]. They know [Aligning the Matrix|Weaves] makes metals stronger, but [Moghedien] is even poorer at that than at [Healing|Weaves]. They do not even know what [Spinning Earthfire|Weaves] or [Milking Tears|Weaves] are. [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] taught them the trick of not feeling heat so they know that [Moghedien] lied about it.[5] [Egwene|Egwene alVere] tells [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] that [Rand|Rand alThor] sent [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]'s army to bring them all to [Caemlyn] and swear oaths of fealty. [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] is worried that [Romanda|Romanda Cassin] or [Lelaine|Lelaine Akashi] will use this to undermine her. The only [Sitter|Sitters] that clearly supports [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] is [Delana|Delana Mosalaine].[6] [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] reluctantly agrees that they have to move because of the [Band of the Red Hand]. [Amadicia] is west and moving toward [Ebou Dar] would upset [Tylin|Tylin Quintara]. The [Band of the Red Hand] is east so the only direction open to them is north, toward [Tar Valon]. The [Aes Sedai] are very impressed that [Egwene|Egwene alVere] rediscovered [Traveling|Weaves]. Only a few are strong enough to open a gateway. [Romanda|Romanda Cassin] suggested using a gateway to go to the [White Tower] and steal the [Oath Rod] and certain other items for the [Aes Sedai] ceremony.[7] [Egwene|Egwene alVere] wonders aloud what will happen if [Rand|Rand alThor] and some of his [channeling|True Source] men show up in [Salidar]. [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] is clearly upset at the thought. [Tabitha|tabiya] brings in tea. [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] reluctantly agrees that they must move north.
