! __Rand__ POV

In the common room, [Rand|Rand alThor] joins [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] and finds [Thom|Thom Merrilin] telling stories of the [Great Hunt of the Horn|Horn of Valere]. He speaks of [Rogosh Eagle-Eye] of [Talmour], [Rogosh Eagle-Eye], in [Artur Hawkwing]'s court, [Blaes of Matuchin], [Lian|Lian (History)]'s Stand, The Fall of [Aleth-Loriel], [Gaidal Cain]'s Sword, and The Last Ride of [Buad of Albhain]. [Thom|Thom Merrilin] plays music and everyone dances. A scar-faced man watches the boys. Master [Fitch] tells [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] he is a [Whitecloak|Children of the Light] spy. [Rand|Rand alThor] dances with [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara], [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Egwene|Egwene alVere]. Before he goes to bed, [Rand|Rand alThor] heads to the kitchen for some milk where a [Fade] corners him and smiles.[1] The [Fade] flees when [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] comes. They all leave in a hurry. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] decides to accompany them. The stableman, [Mutch|mutch], watches them leave. [Rand|Rand alThor] rides [Cloud], [Egwene|Egwene alVere] rides [Bela] and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] rides [Aldieb]. At the Caemlyn Gate, [Arin] and [Dar] begin to open the gate. Five [Whitecloaks] led by [Dain Bornhald] approach. They saw the [Draghkar]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] appears to grow into a giant[2] holding off the [Whitecloaks] and they escape. As they ride east they see [The Stag and Lion] burning. [Rand|Rand alThor] hopes that [Min|Min Farshaw] is all right.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] The [Fade] smiles at [Rand|Rand alThor]. Is this actually the first appearance of [Shaidar Haran]? ([TGH,Prologue], [TGH,Ch6], [TDR,Prologue])\\
[#2] The weave [Illusion|Weaves] used to make oneself appear larger is apparently common knowledge among [Aes Sedai]. ([LoC,Ch10], [LoC,Ch49]) Other versions of [Illusion|Weaves] such as changing one's appearance and invisibility are unknown. ([LoC,Prologue]) However, [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] has learned how to create an invisibility weave. ([TEotW,Ch48])\\
