TDR: Saidin

Perrin POV#

In the camp, Leya insists on going straight to Moiraine, but asks Perrin to feed her horse, Piesa. One of the Shienarans, Masuto, is stirring a pot of stew. Perrin talks with Loial and Min. Min views Leya. "The Tinker woman is going to die. I saw her own face floating over her shoulder, covered in blood, eyes staring."[1] Loial plans to write a book about Rand. Rand comes out of Moiraine's cabin and walks away. They have been arguing. Uno, Masema, Ragan and the other Shienarans are in awe of him. Leya is in Moiraine's cabin with Lan and her. Perrin follows Rand to a fissure in the mountain wall. Rand recites a portion of the Prophecies of the Dragon:

"Twice and twice shall he be marked,
twice to live and twice to die.
Once the heron, to set his path.
Twice the heron, to name him true.
Once the Dragon, for remembrance lost.
Twice the Dragon, for the price he must pay."

and notes that there are no Dragons yet.[2] Rand asks Perrin if he thinks Mat is okay and Perrin says yes. He thinks Mat and the others must be in Tar Valon by now. Rand and Moiraine argue over what to do. She says stay put. He says do something about the people fighting and dying for him on Almoth Plain. He understands that she is right, but he has to do something. Rand knows he must face Ba'alzamon again.[3] As he frets, he feels saidin pulling and causes an earthquake without even knowing it. Rand asks Perrin if his dreams are okay. Perrin goes back to the camp, but Rand stays behind.
