! __Nynaeve__ POV

It is dawn. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] awakes on the banks of the [Arinelle River]. She remembers the previous night in [Shadar Logoth|Aridhol (City)]. She encountered [Trollocs] but after they caught her scent, they left her alone. She sets out downriver. She comes across [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]'s and [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran]'s camp. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] discuss how so many [Trollocs] could have gotten there so fast.[1] The [Trollocs] disappeared as quickly as they appeared.[2] 

[Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] detects that [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] is near and tells her to come out. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] is momentarily chagrined. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] that she can wield the [One Power]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells her that she knew it when she arrived in [Emond's Field|Emonds Field]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] guesses at how it all began: eight or ten years ago she really wanted something and she got it. Then a week or ten days later[3] [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] had her first reaction to touching the [True Source]. Fever, chills, headaches, numbness, giddiness, which lasts just a few hours.[4] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] also guesses that she [Healed|Weaves] either [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] or [Egwene|Egwene alVere]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] confirms that it was [Egwene|Egwene alVere]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] was apprentice to Mistress [Barran|Doral Barran]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] that women who cannot control their [channeling|True Source] die a terrible death. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] recalls that Mistress [Barran|Doral Barran]'s first apprentice and an apprentice Wisdom in [Deven Ride] died in this manner.[5] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] that she can become one of the most powerful [Aes Sedai] they have seen in centuries, even more powerful than [Egwene|Egwene alVere]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] that they must start heading south. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] asks why and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] explains about the tokens she gave them in [TEotW,Ch2]. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] fetches [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]'s horse and they depart.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] The [Ways].\\
[#2] Probably through the [Shadar Logoth|Aridhol (City)] [Waygate|Ways].\\
[#3] Again, an inconsistency on the length of a week.\\
[#4] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] describes almost word for word the symptoms [Rand|Rand alThor] experiences in [TEotW,Ch15] and [TEotW,Ch24], a blatant hint about [Rand|Rand alThor]'s abilities.\\
[#5] From the text it seems probable that Mistress [Barran|Doral Barran] had some feel, perhaps subconscious, for channeling and the dangers involved.\\
