TDR: Tar Valon

Egwene POV#

Verin, Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve, Hurin and Mat ride through the village of Darein. One of six bridges begins in Darein and crosses the River Erinin River to Tar Valon. Verin stops to talk to the guard. He says the Whitecloaks have tried to take over some of the outlying villages such as Eldone Market. Verin covers her face as they cross the bridge.[1] After they cross the bridge, Hurin bids farewell saying he must take the news of what really happened at Falme to Lord Agelmar and King Easar.

At the White Tower, Verin talks to a guard who quickly leaves. Two men arrive with a stretcher and take Mat away. Sheriam arrives with three Accepted. Sheriam says most everyone already knows they are back. Verin says she must see the Amyrlin immediately and the girls by closely held until the Amyrlin is ready for them. Sheriam scolds the girls and orders three Accepted, Faolain, Theodrin and a "pretty, apple-cheeked Accepted"[2] to take them to their rooms and guard them. Faolain takes Egwene, Theodrin takes Nynaeve and the third Accepted takes Elayne.
