TDR: Awakening

Mat POV#

It is the day after TDR,Ch18. Mat wakes with jumbled dreams and memories. He mumbles in the Old Tongue, "Muad'drin tia dar allende caba'drin rhadiem." and suddenly recalls leading soldiers against Trollocs.[1] He slowly orients himself and remembers Moiraine and the ruby dagger. He recalls Egwene and Nynaeve taking him to Tar Valon to be Healed and realizes that that is where he must be. There is a table set with a great deal of food and he eats every bite. He decides he must fend for himself. His father, Abell Cauthon, was the best horse trader in the Two Rivers and taught his son well. He thinks about Aes Sedai and the seven Ajahs: Blue, Red, Brown, Green, Yellow, White and Gray.[2] He also remembers blowing the Horn of Valere and that Verin was bringing the Horn to Tar Valon. His memories are very spotty since he left the Two Rivers. There is a knock and the door opens.
